"Where to go on NYE ah?"
New Year's Eve is fast approaching.
Like a tigress crouching waiting to pounce on you as you happily read Stomp on your mobile (you deserve it dude), before we knew it, New Year's Eve has arrived.
I have a firm belief that how you spend the last minute of a day (11:59 PM) will carry over to how you spend the the next day (12:01 AM)... and next year.
So you better spend your last minutes of 2013 right. Whether the year has been good or bad, kind or unkind, all that will be forgotten in the final minute as the clock strikes 12. A new year will be ushered in, full of happiness, hope and what you did in that last minute of the old year.
So you better get that last part right!
Here's our list of 10 of the best NYE Singapore countdown parties this year.

Need I say more? Celebrate the last few minutes of 2013 on the same beach that graced the Zoukout 2013 just weeks ago. Come get yourself splashed in paint and be festive in the haze of the drunken hour and the happy waves. I expect many, many hot surfers and surfettes. Be one of them!

Classy venue, classy price!
Address: Marina Bay Sands - The Event Plaza, 12A Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956
Entry: Standard $138
5.*SCAPE Collision 2014: Supernova Bash
Hosted by radio DJs, this event almost feels like an underground, indie event. With lots of activities for youths by youths, I expect an adrenaline-pumped event with young tracks and lots of dancing. Not a night for the faint-hearted!
Address: *SCAPE The Warehouse, 2 Orchard Link, Singapore 237978
Entry: Standard $25
6. The Royal Ball
There is not much about Ku De Ta I know except that it is a very closed-doors club. So all I can tell you is this little snippet - you are here to party like kings and queens and the most magnificently dressed of the night will walk away with a bottle.
Address: Ku De Ta, Skypark, North Tower, 1 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018971
Entry: Standard $48 onwards
1-Altitude is one of the most beautiful bars in Singapore. It towers over the Marina Bay Sands and probably makes it laugh. I have been there once and I already can't wait to be back. They promise a carnival party (so very Gatsby) and I think I'm waiting to be surprised for more.
Address: 1 Raffles Pl, Singapore 048616
Entry: Standard $68 onwards
8. Masquerade Ball
Bask in the joyous warmth of the new year approaching at Beer Market for a masqueradey new year eve party! Featuring performances by Paraphrase, Melissa & The Movement and ShiLi & Adi - local talents devoting their NYE to you. Champagne available all night long!

9. Together In Electric Dreams
This night will be a big night with the return of DJ godfather Adam Low, who guarantees to bring back the top hits of the past decade and enthral the crowd promises of being together in mind-numbing dance and electric dreams.
Sounds like a night to remember already!
Address: 17 Jiak Kim St, Singapore 169420
Entry: Standard $40
10. Home Sweet Home
No not home club, though that's not a bad choice. Remember, home it even has their own stand-up comedy nights!
Home here refers to a place where you will already be on the vip guestlist and have unlimited drinks. Play the music you love - you are your own DJ after all - and be with the people you love. We have always traded up spending this precious day with our family for a night out but is it really worth it?
This year, DJ Coco (I suck at aliases) will be hyping it up at her humble home in Clementi, where she will finally spend the last minutes of 2013 with the people she love the most after an almost 4-year hiatus of not doing so.
For those wanting to escape the insane crowd, this is the choice for you.
