      Penta & Marisu during thier meet,greet & autograph session. 

Over the weekend, E.O.Y 2014 drew crowds to its event venue at Marina Barrage. For the 1st time the event was held for 2 days. 





The Event was also brought forward to August instead of it being in December, this is because Marina Barrage is closing for renovations soon.
(P.S: Its Events Of the Year instead of End Of the Year as many thought.)

If you are wondering where the Pain come from such Cute looking cars and bikes,its prolly from the owner's wallet.
