I have missed the first time Funeral For A Friend came to Singapore and sadly this will be the first and last show I’m gonna see them live or ever. This Last Chance To Dance Tour is a farewell show to all the fans. A lot of member changes didn’t stop FFAF to lose their mojo but after longtime guitarist Darren Smith left there is no way telling if FFAF is really back on track.

Groundforce 2011 – Round 3 BMX Flatland World Circuit

Every flatland rider in Southeast Asia or even around the world knows about Groundforce and the BMX Flatland World Circuit headed by Yasuyuki Takeo. It’s been almost 4 years since the last (Moto) Groundforce – it was one of the best experience I had. Meeting with other riders I only see on magazines and videos. Seeing them in person is like a shock to me – in a good way. I become more motivated in riding. And I did ride harder after a long time of no riding (almost 3 years from 2002-2005) ’cause I was busy pursuing my career in multimedia design. I can still remember the last Groundforce and it was indeed a wondrous day. I was using a Fujifilm 602Z Pro bridge camera and it was may precious possession that time (and an Aresbykes Dita frame). Without the 602Z I wouldn’t be able to learn the things I know today in photography.
