Present your After Hours admission stub at Hollywood China Bistro, KT's Grill, Palio, Fiesta, OSIA and Starz Restaurant for an additional 15% off the total bill.

Have you caught Lake Hollywood Spectacular? 
In addition, we've heard your requests for an earlier timing for our pyrotechnics show. Thanks in part to our supportive fans on our Facebook Fan Page, Lake Hollywood Spectacular is now scheduled to begin at 9:30pm on After Hours nights.

It's time for Fight Club

It's the time of the month again! For Resorts World Sentosa Martial Combat, of course.

This month's fight nights are on 18 & 19 August, and we've got a very special promotion: National Day 45% Discount Special.

Additionally, for August's Martial Combat, we've got familiar faces - some winners from previous Martial Combat fights. We suggest that you watch out for these fighters:

18 August

Joe Ray fights Chad "The Grinder" Reiner.

On 16 June's Martial Combat, Ray faced Singapore-based Brazillian Jiu Jitsu black belt Zorobabel Moreira. The American fighter threw a vicious overhand right which knocked Moreira out cold after only 14 seconds of the fight. Yes, you read it right, he only took 14 seconds to win!

But don't take this fight as an outright victory. For the fight on 18 August, Ray will be facing a fighter with a very impressive MMA record. Reiner's career record is 24 wins out of 34 professional MMA fights. With lots of experience under The Grinder's belt, this UFC veteran will definitely be a challenge for Ray.

19 August

Ole "Iron Fist" Laursen fights Nicholas Leconte.

Laursen took part in the main event of the first ever Martial Combat on 12 May, where he won in a fight with Brazillian sensation Eduardo "Edu" Pachu. The Superfight Championship Showdown between Laursen and Pachu appeared to be well matched, until fan favourite Laursen eventually triumphed by putting Pachu in a rear-naked choke which led to a tap-out submission.

This time round, Laursen - the current Martial Combat Superfight Belt holder - will be facing Nicholas Leconte from USA. Originally from the USA but now training out of South Korea, Leconte is ready to make his mark on the Martial Combat scene. But the question is, will he be able to tame the Iron Fist?

With such great deals and exciting fights to look out for, you really shouldn't miss this month's Martial Combat. For more information about purchasing tickets, please visit our website.

See you there!

Chris and Anna checked out Palio

Chris D, who is working on upcoming projects for Resorts World Sentosa, will be guest blogging about his dining experiences at the resort.

Chris D's enjoyment of traveling is second only to the love affair with food and luckily for him, his job has allowed him to combine those two passions. Everything from six star, fine dining experiences in Europe and pork lau lau cooked in an underground oven in Tahiti to fried scorpions in China and catfish in the US; he has rarely met a food that he didn't like.
"I'm forever in search of 'THE meal'; the one that combines impeccable service, a unique ambiance and that ever-so elusive perfect combination of ingredients, cooking technique and at least a pinch of culinary passion.  Be it back street food cart or Michelin rated restaurant, until then, I'll continue to enjoy the journey."

The Sun set down late last Saturday.....

Fluorescent light sticks. Enthusiastic sing-alongs. Jumping, screaming fans. If you guessed a concert, you wouldn't be far off. But unlike other concerts, there's a slight catch - this one happened in Universal Studios Singapore.

Sundown Festival 2010 returned with roaring success this year, bringing the freshest and coolest music and entertainment acts from South Korea and Japan onto the Streets of New York in Universal Studios Singapore. Enthusiasts were treated to one big Asian fashion and music extravaganza.

If you were not lucky enough to take part in this event, fret not. We have here a quick eyewitness account of what happened that night, thanks in part to our intern (Siying) who shed bucket-loads of perspiration helping out during the event last Saturday.

"It wasn't a typical Saturday, this 31st of July. Instead of the usual crowd waiting to enter the park for Hollywood After Hours, there were hordes of excited fans getting ready to groove and scream their evening away to their favorite K-pop & J-rock idols.

Right after the sun set, the festival rushed off to a great start with a fantastic performance by famed Japanese traditional drumming crew, Tenko. Tenko started off as a family Taiko group, but has now grown into an interest group with members from different nationalities and races.

Before the crowd settled down from the opening act, it's time to Rock ‘N’ Roll with SuG, a Heavy Positive Rock band and also a rock visual kei group from Japan as they rock the stage with high-energy performance. They were dressed in bright colours, had elaborate hairstyles, and their music can be described as full of life and rock-to-the-top. These are what makes them so attractive!
SuG (J-Rock)
"C'mon! Put your hands up! Put your hands up!"

"Get get getting jiggy, getting jiggy" with F.cuz as they thrilled fans with titillating dance and catchy melodies.
Aww...Sweet charming boys....Oppa! Sarang-haeyo!!!"

Ah! And look who we’ve got here on stage! It’s the sexiest and hottest divas from South Korea – After School. Because of you (passionate fans), After School made their debut stage performance at Universal Studios Singapore and wowed the fans with their catchy upbeat music hits and sexy dance moves. After School definitely left a Bang! on the stage of Sundown Festival 2010.

For the finale act, new age Japanese rock band, LM.C brought the house down totally! Everyone was spellbound by their impactful Electro-rock (electronic and rock pop) music and colourful visuals. It was also the band’s very first time to stage a performance in South East Asia.

It was a really awesome concert! I can’t wait for next year’s Sundown Festival and hope that there will be new elements to spice up this one-of-its-kind Asian music festival." - Siying

Hmm….what about next year? Will groups lik 2PM, So Nyuh Shi Dae (aka Girls’ Generation), Big Bang be performing at the Sundown Festival next year? Well, you just have to keep a lookout for Sundown Festival 2011! So until next year, rock on.
