National Day Parade 2011 Preview!

Every year without fail, i will try to ballot for the NDP tickets, same for this year. But this year, thanks to Ying zi, i managed to get tickets for the NDP preview! (which is better than nothing, in fact i rather go for the preview than the actual thing on 9th Aug) Since she had 4 tickets, i get to ask my BFFs along too! First question that Yah see asked me, "Will have goodie bag anot???" LOL

Met up at Raffles City and bought Gong Cha! (Seriously it's over rated!)

Had a quick meal at Raffles City basement! Potato with Chicken and cheese! Quite nice!

How can a meal end without a dessert? Awfully chocolate ice cream! Super thickkkkk!

Nurul, Yahsee, Yingzi and me queuing to get our goodie bag and enter the marina platform!

Camwhore! Must take with the flag to show that we are at the parade!

There's this Merlion shaped butter cookies by Khong guan in the goodie bag! So Pretty!


"WOOOOOOOO-AHHHHHHHHHHHH" *wave flag vigorously *
Every year the same thing since i was primary 5, LOL -.-

Chinook helicopter hovering over the water, causing turbulence. Feels like a X-men scene! LOL

Fly past of the National flag while singing the national anthem! /patriotic

The best part of the night, CONFETTI! Totally didn't expect it. The machine was like only 10 meters away from us and it suddenly burst, filling the air with bits of red and white paper! I was smiling with my mouth wide open that i think i ate a few pieces of it. Ok, i'm joking. Not so kua zhang lah.

SEE SEE SEE! The whole sky is filled with confetti! I wonder who's gonna clean up after that.

I think this photo very chio! Got confetti, got fireworks, got abit of the stage, got the night city view and river. Therefore, I shall conclude this photo as an award winning photo! MUAHAHA

See how happy my BFFs are! Like a celebration with confetti! :D

PRETTY FIREWORKS!!!! Shall be considerate and only show one photo (:

Last group photo to end the preview! Thanks to Yingzi for the tickets!

The preview ended at about 8pm+ so me and my BFFs wanted to have dinner and we thought, why not go for the Kbox dinner at Marina Square! Sing and eat at the same time! Can waste time also!

3 hours of kbox + Chicken chop set with drinks and snack!

Ended Kbox at around 11+ to midnight, went over to Hong kong cafe for some snacks!

Shall abruptly end this post with a photo of Mochi with peanuts from Hong Kong cafe!

Lunch, Swirl art & Once upon a milkshake!

Just a random blog post introducing 2 places i went recently! (No, i'm not paid to write this post -.-) So here we go! It was just a random Saturday so a few of us met at Bugis, couldn't decide wear to go for lunch to we went opposite to Liang Seah street to have our lunch at some chapalang store...

Here's my Fried chicken with egg rice! Just wanna show you how clear my camera is, MUAHAHA

When i saw the Liang Seah street road sign, the first question that came up to my mind was, "Haven't i read on some blogs or somewhere about a quite famous yogurt store which is also at Liang Seah street?" and i realised there's a Swirl Art outlet along the street. So we went to look for it (:

FINALLY FOUND IT! Ok lah, actually it's damn easy to find.

Inside is very buffet style. Everything is like DO-IT-YOURSELF so you swirl your own yogurt into the cup, choose your own toppings, bring your creation to the counter, weigh it and face the music. LOL There's a WHOLE LOT of toppings to choose from! Definitely spoilt for choice! I wanted EVERYTHING.

Ying zi and Joyce swirling their yogurt. There's even peanut butter flavour!

TA-DAH! Our creation! The one on the left is Ying zi's yogurt which cost like 8 or 9 bucks?! They go according to the grams and she took the heavy peaches and logan -.- Mine is the one on the bottom right with all the chapalang toppings. I think it cost around 6 bucks? Joyce's one is at the top. Also costing around 6 bucks if i'm not wrong... 3 cups for 21 bucks!!! No one to blame but ourselves!

Camwhore with my $6 yogurt! If only mine is 200 grams, then i would get it for FREE lor. That day got this promotion, if our yogurt weigh 100g, 200 or 300g (+/- 1gram), the yogurt would be FREE OF CHARGE. Mine weigh 204g. Wah laooo, maybe if i take one less marshmallow then 200g le! LOL

Smiling on the outside, pain on the instead. AHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAAH Joking.

Few days before the day we met, i actually bought an online deal on Juztoday! Promotion at Once upon a milkshake! Only $4.35 for either 3 scoops of ice cream or 1 reg Milkshake! I bought 2 so i decided to bring the rest to try it out! Always wanted to try ewhen i go *Scape but expensive!

Ordered a Reg Chocolate Milkshake (Can't remember the name) and 3 scoops of ice cream!

The few of us first time trying out Once upon a milkshake drink and ice cream! NOT BAD LEH!

I like their milkshake! SUPER THICK. Like confirm get sore throat that kind of thick lor!

#Random: I would buy this whenever i pass by Takashimaya basement

Reflection photo with Joyce and Jing long while the rest shopping in Muji!

Camwhore! Anyhow-ly bought the huge star ring from the *Scape flea market at only 4 bucks!

Ending off this post with #Random2: Accessories for the day!

Singapore Social Media Day! #sgsmd

Remember i blogged about the Social Media Day 2011 not long ago? Well, here's a recap of what happened that day! By the way, are you guys excited to see my creative sandwich!!! MUAHAHA

One of the aims that day was to raise funds for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund!

Donating any amount that day to the SPMF entitles you to write on the "wall", enter the lucky draw to win a 3D2N trip to Hong kong, and a game card to win yourself a goodie bag (:

Went up to level 5 to complete my game card to get a goodie bag! Basically there were 4 stations and i had to play games that involves Social media. Like shortening one whole paragraph to under 140 letters, Take a photo and upload to Facebook etc. Easy peasy for a social media person like me!

Photo with Jing long, who is one of the official photographer for the event that day :D

4 stamps entitles me to a goodie bag! *throw confetti*

I bought 10 bucks worth of vouchers to purchase some items from the participating blogshops set up at*Scape because 20% of their sales will go to the fund! Since it's all for a good cause, why not?


The 4 bloggers invited - 2 lifestyle. 1 social. 1 food blogger!

Had a little interview session to introduce ourselves and our blog. I'm the only guy! *Blush*

Everyone getting ready to grab one of the four aluminum foil wrapped plates! It contains all our ingredients! My partner for the day is April from! Nice to meet you that day!

Opening the foil to reveal our ingredients! I was seriously praying for tomato/ chili sauce!!!

In the end i really heng heng kena packets of Chili sauce + Veggie, Sausages and Luncheon Meat!

We were given 5 mins to discuss on what to design for our sandwich so i immediately took out my phone, google the image of the _____ and told April what i intend to do! Then we split the task into different parts, it feels like the ultimate plan! Soon, the 5 mins was up and we had 10 mins to design!

I immediately grabbed the scissors and start cutting the bread. I find it so much easier to use compared to the knife lor. Random fact about me: I don't eat bread with the "skin". Since young, i always cut it away with a knife. Until i grew up and realised it's easier and faster to use a scissor!

Staying 100% focused on designing the sandwich. Can you spot the image from my phone?

How about now? It's should be quite obvious already right?

Now you know why i desperately need the tomato/ chili sauce? Actually i secretly have chili sauce in my pocket, JUST IN CASE suay suay don't have ma. Then it will spoil my plan! Phew.

The Angry Birds design is almost done! CREATIVE ANOT?! Angry birds leh!!!

Photo with April with our sandwich creation! Quite proud of it! *beams*

TA-DAH! Abit messy but still! Who would have thought of Angry Birds Sandwich!

The other blogger's sandwiches!

Judging and explanation of our sandwich takes places...


Ying zi and her partner's Sandwich! Can you spot that luncheon meat twitter bird -______-

Consolidation prize for April! Congrats! Eeyer, i thought we can win de lor.

Maybe if i can "photoshop" my sandwich abit like this, then maybe can beat Yingzi's sandwich lor!

Group photo with the bloggers and contestants!

Camwhore!!! Jiaqi and Kaixin came down to *Scape to support us for the contest!

"The Magnificent Social Media Wall" I wonder what they do with it at the end of the event.

First time meeting twitter friend, Darren aka @method86 in real life. Pros of Social media :D

Last but not least, Official photo taken at the "wall" with Yingzi, Jia Qi, Gisiang, Jing long and Joyce!

This basically sums up the Singapore Social Media Day 2011! Would like to thank the organizers for inviting me and also everyone who came down to make this event a successful one! Ciaos.
