Lee Seung Gi The Brilliant Show in Singapore (Meal and Festive Grand)

7 September has finally arrived! Many Airen in Singapore have been waiting for this day to come so badly! It is an important day for Lee Seung Gi's fans in Singapore as we gathered once again to meet and cheer for Seung Gi at our very own country, Festive Grand at Resort World Sentosa!

Many preparation work, planning and teamwork were involved for the meal. From communication to arrangement to delegation of duties and work. It was indeed a challenging and tedious process.

Last year, Korean food was delivered to the fan-meeting venue, Kallang Theatre.
This year, beside preparing a delicious and good meal, we wanted to do something special to thank Seung Gi and Hook for returning to Singapore.

We have worked with Local Celebrity Chef, Sam Leong and team to prepare sets of delicious meal for everyone. Sam owns a restaurant in Resort World Sentosa and the name of the restaurant is Forest! Yes! which is also the name of Seung Gi's latest album!

Both Asian and Korean food were carefully prepared and served. Why Korean food? Because not all Korean is able to take Asian food. Although we know Seung Gi enjoys eating almost everything and he would eat what fans prepared for him but we would like to make sure Hook is well taken care too as it is going to be a long day for everyone.

Food were delivered to Seung Gi's Hotel.

Seung Gi and Hook staff had chilli and pepper crab the night before. We know Seung Gi is a meat-lover and since seafood were served last night, we have decided to focus on meat. Thus 4 kinds of meat were being served for lunch; Chicken, Duck, Pork and Beef. ^^

Seung Gi had late lunch. He took a nap before having his lunch. The hotel staff have helped to place the food in his and Hook staff's rooms. Hook staff informed us that when he entered Seung Gi's room, Seung Gi had already finished the meal that we have prepared for him and Seung Gi said it was good and he would like to thank Singapore Airen for preparing it for him. =)

Food arriving at Festive Grand.

There were a lot of cutting involved for stickers labels. After being coached and trained by Lee Seung Gi Korea and Japan's staff during Gu Family Book's gift event, we know how terrible we been lacking and we know how experienced and good they really are. Probably now, we have become cutting label expert? hahaha! But for the time being, no more cutting, please~ =x

Although the most torturing part was the cutting, the most challenging part was delivery and transportation. Last minute changes were made few days before Seung Gi's arrival and that meals have to be delivered to 2 locations; Hotel and Festive Grand instead of 1.

To be able to make it in time, LSGSG's staff, Forest's team and Bibigo's team arrived early at the restaurant and started preparing the meal. We are really very grateful to the restaurants. They also came together to help us pack the food and place the sticker labels on the containers. There were a lot of teamwork involved and the atmosphere is positive and encouraging. Not forgetting Driver Lee and Driver James which we have engaged who always come 30mins before each appointment and offer their help when we encountered difficulties. We are really thankful for all the help and assistance. Sorry for all the trouble.

Arriving at Festive Grand~

The heart-warming and strong support from Worldren~
Flower wreaths were arranged and nicely placed at the venue.

Thank you so much for showing your support to Seung Gi for the event held in Singapore. Not forgetting, Baidu Tieba, TAIFC, ChinaAiren FC, Hongkong FC, DClsg, Emo Café, Daum Café, Lee Seung Gi Official Fanclub and Seungsunlove Café, thank you for the flower stands to congratulate Seung Gi for his Asia Tour in Singapore and gifts to Singapore Airen at the venue.

The Worldren's basket of flowers was placed in Seung Gi's dressing room~!
Worldren's logo were printed on each petals and, not forgetting the words in gold "Love You" as well~ 
The Worldren's pull up banners which have helped to warm up the atmosphere further. Tourists were also taking pictures with it and airen also help to explain to them about the event and what our Multi-entertainer, Seung Gi does.
Many memories were captured in front of the Worldren's pull up banners. We hope you like them ^^
Commemorating Asia Tour, Worldren and LSGSG's souvenirs were also distributed on-site~

Collection of Heritory's hoodies, magazines, friendship gifts and etc. were also carried out.

Instead of comparing which country does it better and all, we have worked with a common goal in mind; better than last year, do not repeat mistakes and improve processes, to create a fun, happy and memorable event for Seung Gi and all Airen. We try to do what we can. Seung Gi and Hook were especially nervous and worried too, since is the 2nd trip to Singapore. With many thoughts in mind, but we guess these were questions we been asking ourselves many times "Are we able to do better than last year? Can we meet expectations? Is there any areas we should focus more and improve?" 

Behind the scene, there are a group of dedicated and committed staff who have been working on all this for Airen in Singapore and also Worldren. They have been supporting, without claiming any personal credits or rewards, overcoming obstacles and challenges faced, in making sure everything carried out smoothly. If you asked them how they feel now, they probably would replied you "Great~" with a tired look. That is the passion and love they have with them and they would like to share this kind of spirit and love to everyone. Many people thought we are working on this full time but in fact, everyone of us holds a full time job and/or schooling at the same time. There are good times and also bad times but your love for Seung Gi and words of encouragement and comfort have keep us going.
