Singapore F1-shef1 Bah!

So everyone I know AND their aunt were at the Singapore F1 on Sunday. Don't get me wrong, I'm still not an F1 fan but come on! Everyone has their own vantage point photos on facebook and orkut. Cheezy Indian faces plastered with maniacal grins pasted on a backdrop of lit up streets, whizzing F1 cars, Singaporean girls and even crashed cars.

To top it all a classmate from Mount St. Mary's, the school I was at before I joined DPS was actually a race official volunteer there. So his facebook is full of pre-race post-race pictures as well.

And another person I know flew to Singapore just to attend this race.COME ON!

Am I the only one who can't afford to be at the hottest action points in the world? My glory day was when I went to the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League in Bangalore. Somehow that just doesn't have the pizzazz and glamour of the Singapore F1

I want to go to such events too...

well, if it makes u feel any better i didn't check out the race either. this when my office is right next to the track (could have seen it for free from there), and my house is 3 kms from the track. i saw it on the telly. i could hear the engines roaring from my place. damn, those things are loud!
