Went down to Eastpoint for lunch on Saturday afternoon. To my shock, I spotted a queue at the most remote side of the mall, the side which only had motorcycle parking lots and air vents from the Pet Safari. At first we thought it was some sort of free gift giveaway or maybe even some semi-popular Singaporean superstar making a guess appearance. Boy were we wrong.
Upon entering the sliding glass doors of Eastpoint, we discovered that the queue was starting from the stage in the middle of the mall... Snaking all the way to the outskirts of the mall. And the reason? S.H.E. was in town for an autograph signing event.
Everyone in the queue was desperately holding on/buying off the shelf any item remotely related to S.H.E. so that they could get upclose and personal with the stars and get their initials on whatever products they brought along with them. The queue was freaking crazy. It snaked from inside Eastpoint to outside the glass doors, across the BK outside and back to the remote area beside Pet Safari. Words don't do justice to the queue so here's a picture of how the snake was formed...
And yes, 1 person was the size of 1 dot on the picture. And each row consisted of at least 3 people squeezed together. It's freaking amazing what Singaporeans will do to get a simple autograph from their idols.
Anyway, I felt Selina was the prettiest that day, although she had the heaviest make-up on. Hebe basically gave up on her pretty, sexy look when she slashed her hair to shoulder-length and even worse, made it a bob. Ella was cute but not really my cup of tea. I wonder how long the queue would be if superstar Jay Chou were to make an appearance in our tiny island. Maybe the queue would go all the way to Johor?
