A night at the F1 Temasek Suite

A week ago, the hubby got a surprise that well, surprised us both! He was invited as a guest to attend the Singapore Grand Prix, and more than that – he would enjoy the entire race in the comfort of the Temasek Suite. PLUS! He gets to bring a “+1” – me! What a tremendous honor and blessing!

Work distracted us, but the day before the “big day” really got us excited and looking forward to this brand new experience.

2012-09-23 17.13.28 The lanyard that made it all possible! This little ticket also opened up a world of possibilities, literally. We wined (okay, I don’t drink, so the hubby wined) and dined and had a ball of a time. It was literally living the “good” life.

Here’s a peek at the type of chow we chowed down! Once we reached, we settled into the culinary heaven known as the world of Jean-Georges. Sampler plates of a foie gras “steak”, tuna tartare, a truffle pizza, lobster miso ramen, a tarty lemon cupcake… I had to very literally drag my hubby out of there, cos I was getting STUFFED!

jeangeorges Like I said… the high life.

But this was but a pitstop, and we proceeded on to the main highlight – the Temasek Suite.

2012-09-23 17.52.37One of the many suites that lined the area, this one for the Red Bull fans/supporters!  2012-09-23 17.50.31 The floorplan, and we had to go all the way to the furthest suite! But it was well worth it, with a view overlooking the final turn (and the Gardens by the Bay) and the Grandstand and starting point!

2012-09-23 17.58.02 2012-09-23 17.55.01 Here’s my short video on the cars zooming off!

We were well-fed inside the Suite too.

2012-09-23 20.00.32I guess this is enough to induce a food coma!

Haha… I was nursing a queasy tummy, so I had to entertain myself with taking photos of the food, and nibbling at it, but everyone else seemed to love it! We also had the chance to take photos with the President, PM Lee, DPM Teo, DPM Shanmugaratnam, and more!

Today, I’m linking up with Grateful Gatherings, cos this is truly a priceless experience we are (and forever will be) grateful for!
