Robinson personal shopper experience

YWLC had exclusive invites to Robinson Personal Shopper experience and I'm glad to be one of the few who had this opportunity.

Most of you would be asking me what is a Personal Shopper Experience? To be frank, before I knew about this event, I too did not have a clue.
All I was thinking about - was Tai Tai lifestyle?
But nope, its affordable. Surprisingly.

So here's a preview as to what you can expect.

1. Exclusive Lounge area to chill and relax while your outfits are brought in for selection

2. For those interested in brands, its founders and its pattern, (like me) , the robinson personal shopper will explain to you brands exclusively in robinsons and also the uniqueness of each brand.
Ranging from Summer collection to Spring collection. And you can pick the clothes that you like off the shelves.

3. With the selection of clothes , the personal shopper will explain how you can further enhance the style. Most importantly, you can bring clothes of your own.  Example if I just want to buy a jacket to fit my working clothes, I'll bring the set of working clothes I have, and they will bring a selection of jackets for me to try with my set.

And the matching begins.

4. After fitting into your clothes, exactly on that level, is a hair styling salon where you can do your hair on the spot.

Also some hair styles, that does not require much.

* On that day, 2 of YWLC members were invited to be models as well.

Ending off, with us being able to try the clothes on the rack.

I had a great time!

Another Hen's Night preparation- Singapore

Here I'm back with another round of research for a hen's night party in Singapore, because another of my friend is getting married

 First, where to hold it.
 My 2 experience with Hen's night venue were

1. KTV with Dinner buffet I personally like it because I'm also a KTV Fan! And with food in the loop - lovely. But of course the bride to be must also be a fan. So how we did it was to target the other KTV Rooms and get the bride to do hilarious things.
 -> Get the bride to be go to the other KTV rooms and come up with the total amount of $5
 -> Get the bride to be sing a love song with another guy and with actions
-> For the bride to be to feed things to someone else
-> For the bride to be to get people to shout with her " I'm getting married"
-> For shy brides, Okay. My other friend bought a banana and a condom and told the bride to put it on the banana (That's a bit too personal though I feel. Well.)

2. Simple Dinner at Raffles City I chose there for the crowd. Easy to get people to help the bride to be to complete her forfeits.
-> Get the bride to be to order food in a foreign accent (This was really enjoyable)
-> To pose with someone and her one leg in the air (it seems easy but its very difficult for a shy person and in front of everyone in the restaurant)
-> To get people to write well wishes for her and her husband to be
-> To hug a child and say I love you and get the child to give you a kiss of blessing
-> To get a random guy to look into your eyes and feed you biscuits
* Tempted to post photos of my friend doing it but I guess I shall be nice :)

And here's a peek into the other hen's nights I have seen that my friends organize That some I find too wild
 - Clubs -> Kissing some random guy
-> Using a random guy as a pole and doing pole dance on him
-> Dancing on the Table Top / Bar Top
-> Chatting guys up and offering them drinks
-> Giving out bras ( Okay that was really weird)
-> Getting guys to use their mouth to take out strips of paper at the neckline of your blouse (o..kkk...)

 - Hotel rooms private party
-> bride to be is tied on the chair blind folded and get a guy escort to do erotic dance and taking ermm. some of his clothes off ( I was a bit shock when I saw this though. And the bride parents were in the room too)
-> Pajamas slumber party in sexy lingerie
-> Pampering themselves with manicure, pedicure and massage in the room
-> Wine enjoying So back to my research for tonight.

So.... If only it was a weekend hen's night
-> Make her attend a pole dancing/Burlesque Dance class

Anyway, Here's my simple plan for tonight
-> Meet for Dinner
-> Put on her chair that says " I'm getting married to my best friend"
Printable Games -> Sing to some random person your favorite song -> Using your hubby name ; form a poem, then call your hubby and say it to him -> Wink at a stranger -> Find 5 guys and say " I think you are cute" and offer him a sweet -> Take a photo with a guy with braces -> Get a child to put lipstick for you and kiss hand in thanks -> Flick your hair at a guy and say don't you love my hair -> Ending off: Sweet note/message from others

Sharing what I have blessed with - Old folks & the needy in Singapore

In times where we enjoy Chinese New Year - with food such as Abalone, Clams, Snacks, and also receive Ang Paos etc. For the old folks who are in homes, and some who had been abandon, its probably the saddest time because they get reminded by what they lack - love from their children and simply put, family. And for the needy, a reminder of what they do not have.

However on a happy note, this is the time where people are reminded of above lacking, and a time where people remember to give. And the needy and old folks get an extra helping hand on necessities. 

So off I went with Caring Singaporeans to do our part for the society.

A group of people placed Bee Hoon into bags and another group placed rice into bags.
While the rest get readied the red plastic bags to contain all the necessities bought - sardines, biscuits etc.

 Placed all inside the car to the max it can take. Off we went!

With as many as 5 bags that we can carry, with the help of the town councils, we carried and went to the rental flats that were in need.

After probably 4 places, we went to Lee Ah Mooi Old Aged home to celebrate with the old folks

Talking to them with the minimal Hokkein we could muster, and helping to feed those that needs assistance.

It was truly a blessed and amazing day.
Reminded me to be thankful of what I had and remember to share.

My personal take on the art work done for N.E.mation!8

I'm a huge fan of any who create something out of nothing -  because the process of thought just amazes me. With skills, one can create wonders that few knows. It may not be the best but the start is always the spark that makes miracles.

Well, enough of my words of wisdom. (Haha)

N.E.mation!8 is here!
And its time to vote for the final 'products' of creation.

Greater Heights
by Alpacalypse, CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School
Everyone has to do their part to achieve greater heights
- In it showcases everyone caring as one - everyone contributing their part - I like the part where a neighbor brought in curry to the lift, and the other neighbor offered her his loaf of bread. I couldn't feel the connection in the different pictures but I'm glad that in their video it included all the races living in harmony which was what Singapore represented.

Reframe, Don’t Refrain
by Dairy Products, School of the Arts This clip uses frames to show how Singaporeans can step out of their comfort zones to play their part in fighting dengue and help one another.
- In it showcases someone who fainted and one girl leading him to A&E etc. Not much clue what this video entails. In my mind, I just keep thinking of  a Korean MV that had a similar concept.

Prison “Break”
by Delta-Gaytors, CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School
This clip shows the life story of a business man who was succumbed to bribery. But he was caught and imprisoned soon after. He repented and managed to pick himself up with the help of the Yellow Ribbon Project and became successful with a new business setup.
- In it they use monopoly board game as a representation. This primarily talks about the now famous guy who sets up a restaurant and hires the ex-convicts. Though its a good thing, I think its becoming overly hyped and personally, I don't think this is representative of Singapore as a whole.

Every Man’s Journey
by Hashtag, School of Science and Technology, Singapore
This clip features the journey of a National Serviceman and how other people in his life have played a part in his journey and contributed to the 30 years of total defence.
- In it showcases about a national service guy journey. One person? Not for me. Probably should have showcases a number of different NS, police, fireman etc guys and them in action.

Keeping Watch
by Momento Mori, CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School
Uses parts of a watch as metaphor to show that every part are like Singaporeans, which are all important, no matter how small they may seem.
- In it showcases what makes us Singaporeans tick. And I love how it is able to connect the different periods of our life. NS Boys, work, HDBs etc
3rd B-E-S-T to me :)

It Takes More...
by Partta Kappa, School of the Arts
This clip uses silhouette play to bring attention to the less acknowledged roles which have been significant in establishing the successful nation we have today.
- In it showcases how one can't do the job but requires a nation, in all things that we do. I like how it addresses alot of the current issues we face in Singapore - societal, financial, safety etc \
B-E-S-T to me :)

Because “I” Play A Part
by Synch, Kent Ridge Secondary School
This clip uses typography to illustrate and highlight the importance of “I” and its role in playing a part in many different Singapore campaigns and events like racial riots, yellow ribbon project, SARS and haze.
- In it showcases the solutions to our current problems. I like how it has an emotional feel to it. And it combines the I to SINGAPORE.
2nd B-E-S-T to me :)

Unsung Heroes
by The 4 of Us II, Tanglin Secondary School
True life accounts of three Singaporeans who have played a part in contributing to Total Defence.
- In it showcases again individuals which does not represent us. out for me.

by Unicornsandrainbows;), Orchid Park Secondary School
This clip shows that one can influence others to do their part and anyone can contribute to society, regardless of age.
- In it showcases issues that are more of a gracious campaign rather than actual community - eg. lost child, pregnant women, blood donations

Quilted Together
by WAYNE STARK CO., Methodist Girls' School (Secondary)
This clip uses quilt patches as a metaphor to show how Singaporeans come together and play their part for Singapore based on their different talents and passion.
-In it showcases the story of a quilt ......

Just sharing my thoughts
How about you?

By the way kudos to all the students who spent nights and days poring and racking your brains to produce these wonderful animations. Continue to strive on. 

Closing date: 15th Feb 2014.
