AdilanClub:Breaking news, is the best for news
SINGAPORE - THE pictures posted on citizen-journalism website Stomp show a packed dance floor filled by an enthusiastic crowd at Zouk on Oct 5.
The attraction: The debut of the Cyberjapan dancers, who appeared in their trademark bikinis.
The Japanese dance troupe, who were there alongside Japanese DJ Mitomi Tokoto, who was also making his bow at the club, turned up the heat on the dance floor while interacting with the crowd.

But now, it seems, the club may be in trouble with the law.
The New Paper has learnt that the police will be looking into the performance to "ascertain whether the establishment had breached licensing conditions", said a spokesman.
Under the Public Entertainments and Meetings Act Cap 257, bars and nightclubs intending to provide any form of public entertainment activity, including performances of music, singing or dancing, will need to apply for a Public Entertainment Licence, unless otherwise exempted.
When informed of this development, Mr Timothy Chia, Zouk's head of marketing and events, replied: "We have a blanket, year-long live performance license from (the) public entertainment division."
This is not the first time authorities have checked on the entertainment provided at nightspots here.
In August 2010, Club Atlantis - touted as Singapore's biggest Thai disco - at Textile Centre was ordered shut after it breached licensing regulations.
Apart from the live music and foreign entertainers, the club had scantily-clad young women who went from table to table pushing the sales of drinks.
