vPOST Nuffnang Christmas Party Rocks!

For the past few days, I've been compiling the photos taken at the vPOST Nuffnang X'mas party! Although i did not manage to get all the photos, i shall make do with what I have and blog about how fun the event was!

The event was supposed to start at 6pm, but Me and Valerie reached at 6.45pm. We were still not that late because people is still streaming in at that time.

Had to register at the counter where Huiwen is, there were like so many I Nuffnang Badges placed on the table. I've like quite a few of those at home :) We were issued our entry ticket...

Each tickets comes with 2 stub where we can exchange it for a drink inside DXO. We can choose from Softdrinks, Housepour or Beer. As usual, whenever i tried to enter a club, I've to show my IC, especially this time when I am dressing up as a School Boy!

Before entering, we had queue up to take a photo behind the backdrop, like those celebrity event, where at the end of the red carpet, there is a backdrop to pose for photos.

Clara as _____. (I forgot.), Raine as SIA girl and Cherie as _____. (I also forgot) Didn't manage to take photos with Huiwen :( At first when i saw Ming, i thought he was a pilot, but when you look closely at his tie, you'll realise he's a student :)

Once Valerie and I stepped into DXO, we were walking around to look for familiar faces. Found Nadnut and Jayden in the dark. Nadnut dressed as a teacher (More like Sarah palin), Jayden is also School boy like me (His nerd specs is Freakin' huge!)

This bunch of bloggers came up to us and intro-ed themselves. (I think val knows them.) Saw my photo on a few of their blogs. The one in the vendetta mask is Weijie :) From this photo, you all can see what val dressed up as right? Soccer Player!

Soon, Winnie and Esther came. Both dressed as Santarina!

I was with this crazy bunch of Santarina the whole Night! Lucky me! Haha! Kenny Sia is not the only lucky one okay... That night, I finally found a common thing between Winnie and Peggy!

Winnie Heng and Peggy Heng :)

Peggy wants to be Nerdy Santa-rina!

The event officially starts when Ming gives his opening speech! Randall tan was the MC for the day! He did a really good job in getting the atmosphere high! There was also buffet dinner!!!

That's me with a lot of Santarinas hogging the buffet table!!! *Surrounded by Chio chio Santarinas* All Peggy's and Winnie's friend. While eating, one of the games started...

Best Dressed Male/Female blogger! We have the tranny, Samurai and Paranoid from the male's side, Venus, Virgin Bride and _____ on female side. They had to do the Catwalk on the stage.

Beside me is the Winner of the female , Opps, i mean Male category. Do you know who he is? HE IS TYPICAL BEN Tiffany! He came as a girl!!! Everyone was super shocked. Who would have thought he would dress up as a girl...

There is also a Award for the Top 3 most creative post. The top 10 blogs was flashed one by one on the projector, which is super cool! I think the blogger would be super proud to see his/her blog flashed on the screen viewed by hundreds of people.

Guess who won? Jayden! He really deserved to win with that cute video! Peggy won the 2nd Prize :) I should have joined!

The "Don't forget the Lyrics" Segment. Those who got chosen have to sing along to a X'mas song, then when the music stop, the person have to continue the next sentence of the song.

KennySia
failed his attempt! So next was this Nuffie from M'sia who sang "Jingle Bells" (Honestly, I don't even know any X'mas song, except for a few chorus =X)

After the singing, it's the highly anticipated Lucky draw! The prizes are attractive!!! I did not win anything :( Boo! Boo! Val and Winnie won something...

Lastly, it was log-cake cutting!!! The VIPs went on stage to cut the HUGE logcake to commemorate this event. I heard the logcake is freakin' nice!! And it's chocolate flavour somemore!!!

Remember that I mentioned earlier about taking a photo before entering DXO? At the end of the event, everyone that attended the event got a personalized MyStamp! So freakin' cool! I won't even use it... I would keep it safely :)

Everyone also got a goodie bag each! A few of us took 2 =X

I brought my camera, but i forgot to buy batteries!!! So I have to depend on others to help me take photos, nevertheless...


Lastly, I just wanna say...
vPOST Nuffnang Christmas Party Rocks!

Soyjoy Blogger Event

Finally i have the time to sit down and blog about this event! Edited the photos long long time ago, uploaded it to photobucket, but didn't get the time to do it!

Received an invitation to the Soyjoy event, where there will be a movie screening, and also a talk on Glycemic Index (GI).

It was held at...

Screening Room at 12 Ann Siang Road. I didn't know a place like Screening room exists in singapore. It's a great place for holding gatherings, where there is food, drinks and film.

Of course it's super boring to go for blogger event alone, so i brought Claire and Rinn along :) Had to chiong to Chinatown...

The "name tag" that was given to everyone that attended the event. Although we were late, we were considered quite "early".

I meant that, the event was supposed to start at 7pm, but there were still familiar faces like nadnut, Sabrina, and Priss coming in...

On the table were snacks for us to enjoy while watching the movie. There were Twisties, Potato chips, snickers blah blah blah, and not forgetting Soyjoy bars! Little did we know that the snacks are placed there for a REASON! *Revealed later*

Before the movie start, the 3 of us start taking photos, Above is us posing with the Soyjoy bars, Did you realise all 3 of us are holding the bar upside down?!

The movie screened was Supersize Me. It's a movie abt this guy who has to eat only items brought from Macdonalds for 30 days. It may sound like heaven to some of you, but after you watch the movie, you might want to stop eating Mac for awhile...

We decided to go out for a short walk halfway the movie because i was feeling abit sleepy =X We posed for another photo with the Soyjoy bars, this time with the goodie bags which was given to us at the end of the event.

After the movie was a talk given dietician share about the benefits of a low Glycemic Index (GI) diet.I managed to gain some knowledge about GI, if you are interested, maybe you would like to pop by this Wikipedia page to know more about GI.

At the end, we were asked to take out this form from our goodie bag and tick the items that we ate throughout the whole event! Being Greedy-me, i ate almost everything! So my GI indication was...

The above photo was a 'special something' from Soyjoy.A mugshot of my GI intake for that night! Everyone's GI intake was High, except for one girl.

Overall, it's was a nice event :)

Holidays are here!

Yay! Holidays are here!!!

Kinda lost the blogging mood, edited photos long long time ago, upload to photobucket, but everytime when i open the blogger page, the blogging mood seemed lost...

I still got 2 post to do, one of them is an event post! The event has passed like 324325 days and i haven't blog about it!

Bad news! Holidays means i won't be facing my laptop, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Which makes it more difficult to blog. Well, i shall allocate some time to blog!

Talking about allocating time, Sabrina PM-ed me to ask me if i would like to featured in her mag, Gadget3, so she sent me a short email interview.

Here are the questions,

1. What's your #1 New Year's Resolution?

My Ans: To be more organized! Everything is just happening too fast! What?! it's year 2009 already?My resolution is to be able to organize everything nicely. My room, my schedule & my thoughts.

2. How do you plan to keep that?

My Ans: Hire a secretary to plan everything for me :) Opps, i don't have the money! Guess i will just have to buy an cheap organizer, and stick to it religiously.

A lot of people have been asking me about the "I My Blog" tee. It's kinda cool where you are wearing a tee with your name/nick and your blog URL,isn't it?

So where exactly did i get it from? Nope, it's not from a blogshop. But it's an online store called "Comboutique". You get to design your own tee. It need not be I My Blog, It can be other things, i love my GF, i love my blah blah blah...

The best thing is... You don't have to wait long before your shirt arrive! Shipping is done within 24 hours, and in about 2 to 3 days, it arrives at your house!

I will be back!

I realised i haven't update my blog for quite a long time!

I am super duper ultra tired now. Yesterday, went to Zouk for the Flesh imp fashion show, will update more when i upload the photos into my laptop. Saw Jayden there, the most unexpected thing that happened was...

While i was getting out of Zouk, i heard someone calling my name "Andy! Andy!" I was looking around to see who was calling me. Then there was this Malay girl waving. Guess what she say? "I read your blog, i'm from RP too!" I was like Wow. So brave of her to say hi, and say she read my blog. I think i wouldn't dare to do that lah.

To the girl: Hey, if you are reading this, do drop me a tag :)

I was super happy that people approached to say hi, and say they read my blog, so cool rgt? That time in school also. One of my classmate's(STARfan) friend, came and say hi, and say he is a reader of my blog.

*Back to yesterday*

After Zouk, hanged out with Ryan at orchard till bout 3am, then i was lazy to take NR7 alone all the way back to Pasir ris so we took NR2 to woodlands, slept over at his house.

Morning ordered Mcdelivery. Went home in the afternoon, and slept all the way to 5, went for dance training. And here i am blogging.

I will be back :)
*Off to sleep*

Nuffnang Blood Donation Drive!

Before the actual event, i was thinking whether to donate blood anot, a lot of questions was popping in my mind. Btw, I don't think my mum allows me to donate blood. (I can imagine her face if she read this post!)

Nevertheless, I agreed to attend the drive when Raine called me. So fast forward to 29th November 2008, it's Singapore’s first blogger blood donation drive!

The event was held at Bloodbank @ HSA. Opposite outram MRT station. My time slot was at 1pm, but i was late =X (While walking in, i was still thinking it will be painful...)

Registered at the booth, we were given the I Nuffnang badge! I have like 4 of those! I am no.70, i wonder what the number means... I was also given a "Be nice, this is my first donation" sticker, some notes and a form to fill in...

After which, Rinn and I walked into the Refreshment room to meet the other Nuffnang-ers, Had to fill in my form, had a chat with those people i know, such as Valerie, and ...

Boss Ming. Everyone was asking about my Shirt, From the photo above it may look like a normal I NY shirt, but later you might see what is written on my shirt :)

Although my time slot for donation was at 1pm, I wanted to wait for Shawn. There were a lot of board games and a GIANT snake & ladder for us to play!

On every table, there is this piece of paper. Rinn and I decided to pose with it for Valerie to take. Might send the wrong message. Haha! After that we played games with the other Nuffnang-ers, played Taboo! It was super fun! Soon, Shawn and Ryan arrive!

We wore the same shirt, Actually, not EXACTLY the same. Although both says "I My Blog", it has our name and blog URL! Cool right? Bought it from an online store. Claire was supposed to come, but she got work last minute, or else 3 of us would be wearing the same shirt :(

Soon, it was time to our turn to donate blood. We were led to the official registration counter, where we submit the form. Shawn did not get to donate because he is only 17! No parental consent form! So i had to go for the medical screening alone. I am quite happy that i am healthy, despite all the junk food.

Next is the blood test to check my blood haemoglobin level to ensure that i can make a donation. I think this is the most painful part of the whole blood donation process! They used this device to shoot a needle at your finger, then blood will flow out.

Above is the process. They will let you hold this cute tomato stress ball. Then they clean my arm using a antiseptic wipe, then they inject a local painkiller, finally the thick needle. No pain :) The blood will flow to the bag below.

Within 15mins
, the whole process is done. Then they will bandage your arm with their cute bandage and you're done :)

Redeem my Goodie bag after donating. It contains a blogger T-shirt that says "I TOOK PART IN SINGAPORE’S FIRST BLOGGER BLOOD DONATION DRIVE". + A pin that indicates your blood type (till today, i still dunno my blood type!) and a cert!

A cute little cert of appreciation from Nuffnang :) Must keep away safely from my mum! Then ending the day with a buffet spread.

Lastly, ending off this post with the group photos. Each group took a photo with an alphabet, putting these alphabets together, it forms a word - Nuffnang!

I DONATED BLOOD!

P.s: Photos can be found HERE.

Philips "Indulge your senses" Blogger event

I got to say this is the BEST blogger event that i have ever attend! You might have read about it at Peggy's/ Winnie's/ Esther's blog... It's time to read mine!

I think i am one of the last few to blog about this event.
I thought everyone would be taking their own sweet time to blog about it, but guess what?! Within a week, almost everyone blogged about it!


I totally did not regret leaving halfway throughout my test and chiong-ing all the way from woodlands to City hall. Claire & I was one of the first few bloggers to arrive at Fairmount Hotel, the actual venue of the event was actually at Scarlet hotel. A limousine came to fetch us! YOU did not hear wrongly! A limo!

It's the first time i get to sit in a limousine (Same for most of the other bloggers), and i hope there will be a second, a third time! Inside is really super cool! Just look at the photo below!

There is a variety of drinks to choose from, Ranging from champegne, Juices, mineral water etc. There were also Expensive chocolate! Above our head is so Star-ry! It's like a mini bar in the limousine! I was busy taking photos and exploring the limo...
Finally we reached Scarlet hotel. The hotel may seemed small on the outside but it's actually quite big. We headed to the topmost level, where all the bloggers gather for some food and drinks.

Everytime bloggers attend events, we usually have to whip out our camera, to take photos so that we can blog about it, but for this event, they actually hired photographers! So all we have to do is pose pose and pose, and the next day, the photos are uploaded on Facebook for us to grab and blog!

Drinks & Food were served while waiting for all the bloggers to arrive. There were a lot of food to taste. The waiters will keep asking you to take, making sure you had enough :)

Soon after all the bloggers arrive, had enough food. The event started with philips pulling off a cloth to reveal their latest *referring to notes* Philips Flat TV with Perfect Pixel HD engine & Ambilight Spectra 2. Big difference compared to the normal flat screen TV.

Then, we were split into 3 groups to checkout the other Philips products, in different suite of the hotel.

(Click to enlarge)
*Referring to notes* They introduced a lot of their products such as the Micro Hi-Fi system, with Bluetooth technology, Their audio Players, Their Acoustics In-ear Headphones, Shavers, Hair curlers, Hair dryer etc.

While girls was checking out the hair curlers, guys was introduced Shavers and Men loreal products.

That's me listening attentively to what they've got to say about their products. I might need them soon... (Actually i was wondering if those products are in the Goodie bag =X )

Photos were printed out almost instantly! Suddenly, the photographer will come to you and pass you some cards, and you realised it's your photo! Great way to remember the event! Gonna laminate those photos.

Next stop was the Audio Room where we get to experience some audio stuff. The above photo is BTM630 Micro Hi-Fi System, which allows you to enjoy music via Bluetooth technology. There is even a One-touch MP3 recording, No PC needed! There is also a built in mic for hands-free calls! I would recommend this.

Everyone listening attentively. We also get to try their latest Advanced Acoustics In-ear Headphones. Honestly i'm not fan of In-ear headphones cos it feels weird. However their earphones comes with the Comply™ Canal Tip' memory foam sleeves, which provides comfort and noise isolation. It cost a whooping $179.

My group! With Peggy, Winnie and June, and two others which i dunno who are they. (Photo clickable to enlarge), after the "Audio" room, we headed down to the next stop, which is another ride on the limousine to test their Mp3s!

Taken in the lift with June, Peggy and Claire. Winnie left early cos she got something on... The photos are really clear and nice compared to our cameras...

In the limo, we get to test 3 different earphones with 3 different Mp3, then we fill in a survey form to choose which is our preferred choice. Until today, i still dunno what Mp3s are in the suitcase!

(Click to enlarge)
Not forgetting to take lots of pictures of the limo! It's not everyday we get to see one, not to say travel in one! The above is just one of the many photos we took.

Lastly, we returned to the hotel suite for a de-brief cum lucky draw for those who brought their Mp3 (I did!), they thanked us for coming...and then to the lucky draw, the prize is the $179 Earphones!

A name was chosen out of all the names... So the Guy was like going... The lucky person has a "N" in his name... A lot of us have N in our name, then he go... There is an "A"... Everyone was like "Nadnut! Nadnut" I bet her heart was pumping super fast, until...

It's ANDY!!!! *Throw confetti* I was quite surprised that i won. So i was giving the million dollar smile when i shook hand with the guy :) After that we were dismissed, being bloggers, it's photo-taking time!

Pretty Ms Dowager wants a share of my Ear piece! How to share, one side each? Nice meeting you! I was having eye infection that day, so i had to photoshop away the "reds" in every photo :(

The other pretty sister! Roaring Queen, Winnie! Sorry i can't attend your friend's chalet the next day!

Nadnut pouting cos she didn't win the earpiece. She even show me her "almost" spoilt earpiece with wire hanging. In the photo, Issac, esther and fidelis.

(Click to enlarge)
Another group photo, Issac and I are the only guy there lah! With all the other pretty female bloggers.

Me, Issac and Esther.

(Click to enlarge)
A final group photos with all the bloggers that attended the event. Great event wasn't it? I would give philips 5 out of 5 stars for the planning of this event, making us bloggers felt like celebrities. Not only that, We did not go home empty handed!

We had a Goodie bag each! Comprised of lots of Loreal products and a 2GB PHILIPS MP3 PLAYER!!! plus a folder with some pamphlets and notes to aid us in blogging :)

Special thanks to Philips, Loreal and P.Sabrina :) and nice meeting bloggers such as Deadpris, the dudes from tech65, simplyjean, Iz reloaded etc :)

I should start using the Loreal products, my skin is getting bad. Must be not enough sleep. I shall stop here. This entry is super long! Hope there is more events like Philips!

P.s: More photos can be found HERE.
