Sakura International Buffet Restaurant @ SAFRA Jurong




SAFRA Jurong
My company, Cameron runs this Engage To Excel event quarterly to ensure that every department commits to teamwork through team bonding activities.

I joined the Quality Control department since July 2015 and I was kinda assigned to organize one for this last quarter. To be honest I suck at organizing events and so the best option for me is to go for lunch/dinner as a group and that's it.

We did gather opinion from the shop to get feedback and well, having dinner at Sakura International Buffet has the highest vote so we went ahead for that.

It's $42.80 (incl. GST) per adult for dinner on a weekend because we went on Sunday so that more shop floor employees are able to make it. You can find out their rates at the Suki Group website.


It's located at the north corner of the club, but that's not the main entrance.


Turn left after passing the main lobby and you'll find the main entrance


The interior

And my favorite sushi bar







You may approach the chef to slice sashimi for you

PSY - Daddy (Cover by Gary Song & Javin Tham)


This is the 2nd Korean song cover that we did after Gangnam Style which was done 2 years ago. It's a song by the same artist, PSY, called "Daddy".

We changed the lyrics "My name is PSY 한국말로 박재상", which literally means "My name is PSY. In Korean Park Jae-sang" to "My name is Gary Song, and his name is Javin Tham", which makes so much more sense! LOL.

It's always a challenge to memorize Korean lyrics, but we did it. And by utilizing a similar chord progression throughout the song, we arranged the spoken lyrics into singable melody, sort of like what we did for Gangnam Style.

You can actually see from my facial expression in the beginning of the video that I'm smiling, I actually almost burst into laughter because Gary made fun of "you be my curry, I be your rice". I was really bothered by that until he laughed and commented that the lyrics don't make sense.

We're rushing for this to make sure that it's gonna be the first acoustic cover of the song, but well before uploading this cover I found that there are already some instrumental or acoustic covers on YouTube, no worries, ours is still the first acoustic covers done with a keyboard. HAHA...



I got it from my DADDY
