Feeling excited for the weekend to arrive because it's gonna be a star-struck day for me. 

I got the opportunity to attend the press conference for Skechers Sundown Festival 2014 where I get to see the performing artistes upclose in person.

The press conference was held at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road, the official hotel sponsor for Skechers Sundown Festival 2014.

All the good spots have already been taken when I reached. 
Next time gonna go early for such press conference.

The press conference started off with the first artiste appearance, ShiGGa Shay from Singapore.

ShiGGa Shay is our local hip hop artist, songwriter and music producer. He will be performing the opening act in Skechers Sundown Festival 2014.

The next group of artiste, Cross Gene from Korea.

Cross Gene is a six-member multinational boy band based in South Korea, comprises of members from South Korea (Sangmin, Yongseok, Shin and Seyoung) China, (Casper) and Japan (Takuya).

I'm a big fan of kpop music, they are part of the reason why I came to the press conference. 
They are so charming, I couldn't resist myself from snapping photos of them.
