Star Trek Camwhores

Last Friday was the preview of Star Trek, and AMBP had organised a gathering of Trekkies, Trekkers, and Bloggers. This was the second AMBP gathering I attended, last year here.

The event was emceed by the very capable DJs from Red FM
Red FM JD and Dilly

and of course Trekkies/ers were in evidence

There was a treasure hunt organised, which I thought was pretty well put together - but I was by myself and it took well longer than I expected, so I had no chance to win the Gopher GPS which was the first prize. While I was going around the mall searching for clues I saw these happy shoppers :-)

I also met Horng, KY,Suanie and Josh Lim! There were bloggers everywhere!

Afterwards, we took the opportunity to camwhore with Captain Kirk's chair

Then Serge Norguard had the idea to imitate this picture:

So we tried (thanks Kruel74 for the picture)

What’s funny is that afterwards I found out that Horng, KY and somebody had tried the same thing before :-) (Picture curi from Suanie)

Bloggers' minds think alike, apparently!

Anyway, everything was running a bit late, so I left to get some food before the film started. I liked the film - I'm not a Star Trek fan, but I like science fiction, and it was well done. I'd recommend it if you like science fiction, and there's a lot of action (but not too violent or anything) too - but don’t take my word for it, check out Bernardc's review - or if you can’t be bothered reading it, check out his and other bloggers' interviews by :-)

Here are some 'the making of' shots from the interview ;-)

OK that's it! Here are some other posts on the AMBP event, please tell me if I've missed any.
