SANTIGOLD & travelling with the speed of sound.. to SLINKYland

dress & headband - made by me

















If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you would know about my obsession with SANTIGOLD, formerly known as Santogold. So when I heard she was coming to the island - my island - I just about lost it.

So can you imagine what it was like for me to be asked on stage to dance with her? I still cant believe it. Her dancers/backup dancers are the cutest things ever, and Santigold, well she is just as rad as I imagined her to be. Live she sounded exactly like she does on her record, and she was smiling and gorgeous in her wicked little jumpsuit, despite the gruelling humidity. At the end of it all, Che and I stole her play lists that were stuck on the stage floor, and I plan to frame mine together with a photo of her.. I told you I was obsessed. We were so close up front, maybe 5 feet away from her at all times. BEST. NIGHT. EVER.

After her performance, and 2 encore songs, fireworks, fire shows, dance numbers and an abstract interpretive dancing, Pete Tong started playing, and we headed over to Slinky to dance the night away. Slinky is one of my favorite events of the year, crazy house music, dancing in the sand until the sun comes up and crazy black lights & neon decoration. At about 5am we were exhausted and decided to hit the sack.. but I could still hear the bass & music until about 7am.

How was your Easter?

PS: Santigold + Boracay + Full Moon + Fireworks =
