Singabore? No, its Swingapore

Singabore? No, its Swingapore

Whoever said the Lion City is dead boring obviously hasn't heard of dodgy clubs where S&M and other kinky things take place (shhh... it's near the aptly named Club Street).

It's party central here and this Girl Friday has been swinging since the F1 hit town last weekend.

Singapore was hopping with glamorous parties from the one-stop nightclub heaven that is Clarke Quay to the uppity bars on Emerald Hill.

The big one that I went to was the ever so generous Johnnie Walker party where the free flow of Gold Reserve stunted my balance.

And, of course, I partied among the 'VIPs' (with the likes of Keagan Kang, Paul Foster, Charmaine Yee, Melody Chen, Randall Tan and a few others) in our security-guarded platform overlooking the... regulars?

I'm religious about my Friday nights. It's a joy to squeeze into that little black dress, steadily sweeping on lipstick, matching accessories and securing myself in those 5-inch heels.

Then I flaunt to people from the UK, US, France, Norway, Sweden, Australia, Indonesia... you name it. And no, I don't go looking for Caucasian faces - I'm no SPG.

But they're all here to party and here's my take on why: No street in the world is safer than ours or more convenient for bar-hopping.

From the cheap cab fares (compared to most parts of the world) to the New-York City of Asia vibe, right through to the typically skinny Asian girls the foreigners seem to love, sauntering and flaunting.

I lived in Perth, Australia, when I was barely legal but, of course, very eager to sip just about any alcoholic beverage and bust a few moves on the dance floor of a club.

But "hitting the clubs" meant I had to prepare the equivalent of at least $95 just for cab fare in one direction - double if you want to go home.

In Singapore, with so many parties to go to, how do you pick? This Girl Friday will let her ample legs do the staggering for you.

I've been hitting the club scene from last weekend and Tuesday was pretty unforgettable - I repeatedly turned 23 with some friends at Immigrants, a Gastrobar in Katong, just 15 minutes away from home.

Booze, good music and good kaki - the simplest and most basic concoction for a night of good fun and all at a $250 price tag, cab fare included.

I'll be checking out the sea view pubs on Sentosa and definitely Club Kyo, which apparently has brought back old school R&B and hip-hop for their ladies night on Thursdays.

For the keen eyes, stay tuned.

But club owners, I won't be nice for long. Bring your A-game because I'll accept nothing less than a good party.

Love, Catty Robert. XOXO
