Hello everyone!
To those coming or already here - welcome to Singapore! 😉

I am sure you are all excited for the Canjam this weekend, well I am! Especially after brief hiatus from the pandemic!

While waiting for the canjam, you may visit various audio stores here like the Adelphi (nearest MRT: City Hall MRT) or Zeppelin at Sim Lim Square (nearest MRT: Rochor MRT).

At Sim Lim, besides Zeppelin there’s also SAM Audio where you can audition various budget IEMs such as Moondrop lines! They are at Level 1 near escalator to go up to Zepp.

Sim Lim has many electronic products and if you happen to look for various condenser Mics such as Shure, Rode, etc (work from home, podcast) you may also find them inside.

If you happen to go to Adelphi, across the street you will spot big shopping mall Funan which was recently renovated! Go there if you feel hungry and looking for good meals, they have plenty of them at Level 2 and more at the basement.
Look for Qiji stall if you happen to spot it - they offer good affordable meals!

While in Singapore try our local dishes if possible such as Prata, Nasi Lemak, Lontong Sayur (bit spicy), Kaya Toast bread, or the western fast food choices from Mc Donald or KFC with localised taste 😉

Here are some pics to tease you and get ready for breakfast! 🤤

I’m guessing you’re off to the Welcome Party then? If so, see you there!
Man, we had a great day yesterday, didn't we? We have been doing so much, I feel like we have been here for a week.

The day started out with @metaljem77 picking @SteveK27 and me from the JW Marriott and heading over the Pan Pacific Hotel for a watercooler group DIM Sum buffet. We called the meeting to order and present were @metaljem77, @SteveK27 @klyzon @yaps66 @AxLvR and @HiFiHawaii808 Delicious! We exchanged gifts and we spent 2 hours listening to everything from Storm to Trifecta to Ronin and more. It literally left like Christmas day especially as @metaljem77 opened up her Trifecta and Centurion and eagerly put them into her ears. She did a quick test between my Trifecta/Centurion with hers and she declared, "burn in matters. These sets sound different."

Then, for of us squeezed into a Grab which is basically an Uber or Lyft and headed over to Effect Audio and were greeted by a friendly group including @JordonEA and Heley whom we met at both CanJam Socal and NYC. @ejong7 met us there and we had a great time all day long. They offered us some daan tat egg tarts and iced coffees. We got to listen to a host of EA/Elysian Accoustic Labs products including GAEA, DIVA and the new Annihilator 2023. More specifically, I got to hear the Storm and Anni with both the Chiron and a new Chiron/Horus combination cable. Oh boy, this Chiron/Horus was my favorite especially with Storm because it had the best combination of sound, ergonomics and aesthetics.

Then, we went over to Zeppelin and we listened to the Aur Neon Pro with our coffees. We also ran into Ken and Chang from Subtonic as they had a group demoing their products. I gave Chang a hug and let them alone since we would be meeting with them tomorrow. We got to meet Nicholas from Aur and I must say, I think his Neon Pro is probably the best IEM I have heard under $1000. I like it better than the Monarch mkii and I even liked it more than GAEA and DIVA. It is a 10 BA set that has the exciting signature of a FIR Frontier Series IEM with the great clarity and resolution provided by an all BA set with great bass (with switchable settings) great imaging and instrument separation. I could see in my minds eye every instrument on the stage. We had coffees (I had a iced mocha latte) and desserts and also listened to a Grado Hemp which I learned to love at Audio 46 in NYC.

After Zep, we headed over to get some world famous Chicken Rice from Boon Tong Kee. Also got sweet and sour pork, deep fried tofu and more. Oh so delicious.

Headed back to the JW Marriott where I took a quick nap 45 min nap to get my second wind. The rest of the guys sat in the Tonic lounge and listened to a combination of Brise cables and a monster known as the Python. @AxLvR, @SteveK27 @yaps66 and another friend who is not on head fi were beaming about the Brise cables, interconnects and Tsurangi amp. Pay attention to these names because this group was beaming about these products like I haven't heard since the Orpheus first came out. That Brise amp is going to make a huge hit on the portable audio scene.

But wait, there's more. We then went to see John Wick 4 at the Golden Village Cinema. What an EPIC 4th part of the series. Other than getting revenge, I won't provide any spoilers. Then, @yaps66 and I got a cab as we had to get some Satay. Got back to my hotel around 2 am and thus ended our first pre CanJam Audio Rave in SG.

If I get a chance, will add some pics to this post later.
