So, a lot has happened over the past few days. Singapore revealed that it’s footing the $20million bill for the historic event, BBC News screwed up the map of our country, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (whose name AP butchered) hosted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Istana, US President Donald Trump told PM Lee they were friends, Singapore officials celebrated an early birthday for Trump, Kim and Trump impersonators came out to play, Dennis Rodman made an appearance, we survived a Trump-Kim food and booze trail and, of course, the now-famous photo of the handshake between Trump and Kim took place just yesterday.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe you can’t wait for the media circus to end (we feel ya) — but if you’re still keen on participating in summit frenzy, here’s another for you.
It’s not the most well-known or luxurious of hotels, but it does offer a panoramic view of Sentosa, where all the summit action occurred yesterday, June 12, a day that will go down in history.
Since the organizers obviously couldn’t get the real deal, they’ll be hosting the next best thing: their impersonators.
If you pop by from 7pm to 9pm, you’ll get to take selfies (and hopefully fool some people with the help of expert angling) with Howard X, otherwise known by his stage name “Kim Jong Un”, and his American counterpart, Dennis Alan / “Donald Trump”.
Propeller has a new drink on offer, too — the New Clear Bomb ($17). Ha.
It’s a blend of Korean makgeolli (rice wine) and American bourbon, and you get it with each $20 entry ticket to the party.
