Where did you all wander off to after Juban Stand?


I didn't sing! i left at 1 am with squirrel, but you can join in the singing if you like next time. :P
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

To give an idea... do you remember this movie Goldfinger with James Bond? There was a Korean guy there killing people whit his hat... so we enter the place and we see a guy looking more less the same (well dressed differently).

I remember the film. The chap used his hat as a frisbee to chop the head off a marble statue 50 metres away.

'Take that as a warning, Mr. Bond' .... lol

The people there are very friendly, that is true. :)

Cyclone was the place, in fact it was the only joint I know in the area apart from another bar on Circular Road where this guy Hanley is the owner. Not a huge fan of karaoke bars overall, but this one is slightly different in that it doesn't drown the place with volume turned up to the max. Oh, and there is a pool table. :)

Yeah, that guy sure likes his singing. He's there on most days and when he's really in the mood he'll even pop out to some of the other bars for a quick song or two and then head straight back. :)

Harold Sakata, who wrestled as Tosh Togo and played Oddjob in Goldfinger, is from Hawaii and is Japanese (not Korean).

We had a great time overall, certainly a record number of people still present at 3am+ , at least from my experience so far.

What was that last song that Barnsley sang btw? Some interesting lyrics there referring to a "gangbang" as far as I recall...:)

I would imagine what kind of ladies would the ones be, who remained and joined in a girly karaoke bar with the guys at ungodly hours. :wink:

I imagine it'd be the kind of women who don't feel constrained by what patriarchal society judges as appropriate. It wasn't a girlie bar.

Twas more like a normal pub with a pool table, weird beer & a Karaoke machine. Not a typical Karaoke Pub or KTV Lounge. Just an interesting collection of nightowls hanging around. :)
