Thanks for the detailed history and update, Bro Octo. +GT to you!  :) Btw, was the td at CBD Live Impact? I recall seeing the name before the place became known as Icon.

Just sharing my fade memories 555+

"CBD" area you mentioned is "Yess Leisure" building, the building consist of Icon, Oasis, Club 72 & Sabai Sabai. (Our best manager Bro Vizz was the manager @ 72 & Oasis.. Both place under same management, Deuter knows these places best 555+  ;D) Besides Golden Mile Complex, at that time Yess Leisure Building has most Thai Joint in one building, and opposite Yess Leisure there was a very big car park, but even with that size the car park usually get full especially on weekends

When Live Impact was still at Central Mall, Icon is already stationed at Yess Leisure, so you have Icon & Live Impact, one at Central Mall & another one at Yess Leisure... nonetheless IMO Icon business was so-so compare to LI, until LI was forced to close & the management pull their staff & crowd from Central Mall to Yess Leisure to join forces, when things start to get... Heywire

Attacku~!

Thanks for highlighting the difference between Live Impact and Icon... I had thought was the same. SO when I started going TDs in 2008, both were operational. Then shifted over. I only been to the YESS Leisure Icon...

TD1 started somewhere along 2000 so I guess its the first ... back then I wasn't into it but I heard of colleagues going already.... as for the $2 flower.... i only saw that at the Tanjong pagar railway station.... where they really put on nipple stickers back in I think 2004 or 2006? Cant remember now.... then ya its city plaza.... live impact.... then prince Edward.... then all hell broke loose.... should be in that order ba....  :)

All HELL BROKE LOOSE is the phrase.

Yes Senior @Octopuss

You are the top poster in SBikesF!! TD posts!! Thank you for helping me here~~~

Ibar... oh man... any reviews on this place? Ibar became Live Impact Central Mall then became Live Impact Icon Shenton Way...


IBarr was quite a small joint, reassemble like the size of ex-DH @ Chijmes... but from there you can root out not only to LI/Icon but also Neverland... If I recall our late friend KC had first met his wife Mimi over at IBarr.


Yes... our STD forum started as a Icon gossip board. So I read about KC and Mimi's love story at this very forum... Mimi then became a singer. I remember this was her best song... melted many a hearts in the YESS forest~ her aura was captivating.

YESS Leisure were the days~~~ Was this the period that broke TDs into the *mainstream??? I think everyone went to Icon then, guys and girls from all walks of life. I even saw Fiona Xie there. I had good memories partying here, girls or no girls. I was mesmerized by Bebe (for a short while). :P Woody the guitarist was really good. The party vibe was good every night and some of our senior forumers checked in at Icon, every night, daytime come to this forum to gossip, chat and fantasize.

Tik, IMHO the most electrifying singer ever to grace the stage in Singapore. She could sing well too.
