Jubilee at the Botanic Coverage (31 May)

Last weekend, I brought my daughters, husband and parents to watch Temasek presents Jubilee at the Botanics and have a picnic at the same time.

YAY TO QUALITY FAMILY TIME!

Definitely a great way to kick start the June holidays, I must say.

temsek9

If you must know, it was our first time watching an orchestra performance. That said, we were really excited and eager right from the beginning because we did not know what to expect.

Jubilee at the Botanics aims to bring together friends and loved ones to share their love for music besides celebrating SG50 together with the community.

The Singapore Symphony Orchestra put on such a breathtaking full hour performance, I must say! 

YES, I REALLY DO MEAN BREATHTAKING.

 

We were especially mesmerized by the enchanting voice of Amni Musfirah who was accompanied by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. I could actually sing along to most of the tunes in particular, “Count on Me Singapore”, “I Dreamed a Dream”, “Somewhere”, “Memory and “Home”!

THEY SHOULD INVITE ME TO THE STAGE TO SING WITH THEM, MAN!

Then, you too would be mesmerized by my voice.

LOL.

I was pleased to see how my three girls also enjoyed themselves. They were actually just enjoying the music throughout.

They even got to meet the very good looking host of the event, Nathan Hartono before the show started.

Cheeky girls walking away from Nathan.

Right after we were done, Sharleez told me this,

“Mummy, it was a nice concert. The girl could sing so well and her voice is like a Disney princess. I am going to write this in my journal and tell my teacher all about it when school reopens.”

Oh, did I mention that we were seated right behind the PM of Singapore?

That was such a pleasant surprise, I would say.

Mysha even managed to take a selfie with our PM, without him realising it of course.

LOL.

temsek11

I am definitely looking forward to the next outdoor concert.

This ongoing initiative by Temasek is definitely a very meaningful way to usher the community together in rediscovering one’s love for great music”.

I mean, look at the crowd!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

SYAWAL RENOVATION FAIR. 

THAT’S RIGHT!

 

Icon Interior Design will be having their Syawal Renovation Fair with lots of green packets to give away this time round!

HARI RAYA, MAH?

syawal-2

 

NOT ENOUGH.

 

LET ME REVEAL THE TEN GREEN PACKETS YOU STAND TO RECEIVE WHEN YOU SIGN UP WITH THEM!

123-1

 

YES TEN!

(I managed to coerce the boss of Icon Interior Design into giving more this time round!)

DO NOT FORGET TO THANK ME ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR GREEN PACKETS, OKAY? 😀

 

GREEN PACKET #1: IN YOUR FACE!

Show Icon Interior Design the following photo of mine, give them a few seconds to roll their eyes in disgust, and then enjoy SGD100 OFF your total renovation cost.

( Seriously, is my face only worth $100 off? Damn.)

 syawal-4

 

Anyway.

SHOW THEM MY $100 FACE!

SHOW THEM!

SHOW THEM!

And only by showing my face above will you also get to enjoy the REMAINING NINE GREEN PACKETS.

 

GREEN PACKET #2: DIP IT LOW!

For every SGD10,000 sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will be entitled to a Lucky Dip in which you will DEFINITELY WIN A SGD50 VOUCHER/GIFT CARD FROM either:

 

  1. IKEA

 

  1. COURTS

 

  1. CAPITALAND

 

This also means that if your total sign up is worth $40,000, you will get to enjoy the Lucky Dip four times! Say, if your sign up is worth SGD38000, might as well round it off to $40,000 in order to get four of the $50 vouchers. I mean, you can always review and revise your contract once renovation commences. Just a tip, but please do not tell them I told you. LOL.

 

GREEN PACKET #3: TIME TO GET LUCKY!

If you sign up during the Syawal Renovation Fair AND get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of #IconHomeProject, you will be eligible for their LUCKY DRAW as well!

 

1st prize: SGD500 CASH

Just by showing up at the Syawal Renovation Fair, Icon Interior Design will give you a bottle of SuperShiok Sambal as their doorgift!

Then, you can break fast with the SuperShiok Sambal and get addicted to it.

 

GREEN PACKET #5: Time to BLUM!

  3. LIKE ICON INTERIOR DESIGN FB PAGE!

 

GREEN PACKET #6: Not a crackPOT!

For every sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will receive a branded stainless steel cookware set! I have these pots too and my parents so loving them! I love it when I score brownie points with my parents because that just means they will cook even more good food for me!

If you do not need the cookware set, you can skip Green Packet #6 and proceed to Green Packet #7!

syawal-5

 

GREEN PACKET #7: Born with a silver spoon!

Besides the branded cookware set, you can opt for a branded stainless steel cutlery set instead, just by signing up with Icon Interior Design during the Syawal Renovation Fair! I have them too! HAHA! Everything also I want!

syawal-7

 

BE WARNED GUYS, THEY ARE LEFT WITH ONLY A FEW OF THE COOKWARE AND CUTLERY SETS. SO FIRST TO SIGN, FIRST TO RECEIVE. WHILE STOCKS LAST.

I ACTUALLY WANTED TO BRING HOME MORE BUT THEY WERE LIKE,

“OI! ENOUGH LAH! LATER NOT ENOUGH FOR THE CUSTOMERS WHO SIGN UP.”

 

GREEN PACKET #8: What a great idea!

You will receive a complimentary booklet, which is a compilation of some of the most awesome projects done by Icon Interior Design this far.

If you mention you come from Etrangle and sign up during the Syawal Fair, you are automatically one of the contestants for #IconHomeProject Season Final Season, provided you get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of the challenge. If you intend to only renovate your house next year, then too bad so sad. LOL. Other than that, you will still get to enjoy the rest of the green packets mentioned in this post.

What are the prizes that await you this time round for #IconHomeProject Season 3, once again? Better than Seasons 1 and 2, of course.

—————————————————————————-

FIRST PRIZE:

SGD 2000 electrical appliances voucher

 

SECOND PRIZE:

SGD 1500 electrical appliances voucher

 

THIRD PRIZE:

SGD 1000 electrical appliances voucher

—————————————————————————-

If you ask me how to increase your chances of winning the #IconHomeProject, I will say you should listen a bit more to what your interior designer suggests. I have seen how the wrong choice of colours or furnishing (due to the persistence of the customers) totally ruined the entire concept of the house. When I asked the IDs how come some of the houses did not turn out as great, they told me sadly, “What to do? The owner insisted. They are the paying master, after all. We can only suggest.”

 

SO LISTEN MORE TO YOUR ID OKAY? THEN THEY WILL DESIGN YOUR HOUSE AS NICE AS THE FOLLOWING HOUSES, IF NOT NICER.

ICON-HOUSE2

 

TEN GREEN PACKETS IN ALL?

(Okay fine, technically it is nine green packets.)

THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE CNY FAIR, NEVERTHELESS!

(And I thought that one was already so good!)

THANK YOU THANK YOU!

 

Let me also spend some time to thank the following people who have made #IconHomeProject Season 2 a bigger success than the first one.

 

#1: THANKS Blog Readers!

First up, I would like to thank my readers who engaged Icon Interior Design and put their trust in them! I guess you should already know by now that I do not fancy promoting something that I do not believe in.

One of my readers told me this the other time, which tickled me.

“I like to refer to your blog for anything. But my friends sometimes think that whatever you blog about or promote is too good to be true. It’s like you are trying to cover up the bad (or back) side of the company or product.”

OH MY GOSH.

Fair enough if some of my readers have this impression of me.

But may I explain myself now, please? I think I have this so many times before but never mind, since I am turning into an auntie, might as well repeat the same old thing again and again.

You see ah, I do not promote just because I am paid or sponsored to do so. If that particular product or company does not catch my attention or does not impress me as a consumer, I would not even blog about it at all, no matter how much I am offered to do so. Besides, which client would want to pay me for saying something negative about them, right? LOL.

So trust me when you read my blog because whatever you read is not something made up. If I like it or I believe in it, I will blog about it wholeheartedly. If I don’t, I will not even mention it. It is really as simple as that.

CAN?

 

On a side note, your experience in home renovation and my experience in home renovation may differ because of our different personalities, communication styles, threshold level, and expectations. But other than that, the IDs from Icon Interior Design that I have been working with (namely Wayne, Shafee and Hamed) are nice chaps, and are more than 100% committed and experienced in their field of work. They are definitely not the sort with the “Aiyah just do anyhow as long as we get paid!” mentality. This also explains why we are good friends on normal days. If they were frauds or cheats in the first place, I would not even mix around with them because my mum told me not to mix with bad company.

When we are talking business, we can turn into the worst enemies ever. Fauzi Anuar can vouch for this because he has seen how I argued with those guys just to get my point across. He kept shaking his head while photographing the houses. On another side note, thank you so much to my buddy Fauzi Anuar for the beautiful photos which often end up looking as good as 3D photos. He is a perfectionist, so cannot blame him for always delivering nothing but the best.

#2: THANKS Icon Interior Design!

I have to really thank the guys from Icon Interior Design for always listening to my ideas and suggestions first before they suggest their ideas because well, I believe I know my readers better. But what I am trying to say here is, it is very rare to have the boss listening attentively to you and agreeing to your suggestions 99% of the time, right?

And which boss would entertain your nonsense and do a Dubsmash for you?

YES HE DID ONE FOR ME. BUT HE DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO SHARE IT WITH YOU. 

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So thank you Wayne, Shafee and Hamed for entertaining my nonsense, which is really not nonsense actually, most of the time. I just like to conceal my ingenious ideas with baloney. LOL.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

After reading this post, you can proceed to make an appointment with Icon Interior Design, but you got to most importantly inform them that you come from my blog.

Nowadays, with so many renovation companies out there in the market, you are really spoilt for choice, aren’t you? I was like you too, but I guess at the end of the day, you have to trust your instincts and choose the renovation company based on:

 

  1. How comfortable you are with the interior designer attending to you.

 

  1. How experienced the interior designer is in his line of work.

 

  1. How realistic and practical the interior designer is in providing ideas and the solutions for your new house.

 

  1. Your budget.

 

At the end of the day, it is not advisable to go for the cheapest rates because cheap does not ensure quality (not in renovation at least), especially if you are looking to stay in that house for a long period of time. Some renovation companies can afford to give you the cheapest rates at the expense of compromising the workmanship and quality of the materials used. That said, you do not have to go for a high-end company as well as you need to consider your budget.

AND WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO SEE THE 3D DRAWING OF YOUR FUTURE HOUSE FIRST BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH THE RENOVATION WORKS?

 

THE DESIGNERS AT ICON INTERIOR DESIGN WILL DO IT FOR YOU FOR FREE.

 

Contact them today at 9431 4921 to book an appointment and to find out more!

 

OKAY I AM DONE.

Have a blessed Ramadan, my Muslim readers.

That said, I will behave exceptionally well.

Majulah Singapura!

What makes you Singaporean?

Or what makes you proud to be one?

I certainly am.

And I am super stoked to be a part of NDP 2015 and SG50.

 

NDP3

Just the other day, I was invited to the NDP 15 Media Event together with some other Nuffnangers. Chairman of NDP 2015 Executive Committee (EXCO) Brigadier-General Melvyn Ong briefed us about the highlights of this year’s National Day Parade.

 NDP4

The very fact that we are celebrating SG50 makes this year’s celebration extra special.

 NDP7

A picture with Amantha (one of our managing executives from Nuffnang), MongChin, Corliss, and Missgoob! (I felt sooooo old next to them because they are all like, less than 30 years old! LOL)

So since I had the advantage of finding out more about NDP 15, I am going to share with you some of the highlights that you should take note of!

AS USUAL, YOU CAN THANK ME LATER.

READY?

 

Highlights of NDP 2015:

 

  1. Tribute to LKY

I am sure this will be a very emotional moment for us Singaporeans.

To remember the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, there will be a special film and performance.

The Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) Black Knights will execute the “Five stars” Tribute Aerial Flypast in honour of our founding Prime Minister.

  1. “Home” by The Sam Willows

The Sam Willows will be singing a rendition of Kit Chan’s “Home” and I cannot wait to hear this one!

 

  1. NDP’S 2015 THEME

This year’s theme will be “Majulah Singapura” which calls on all Singaporeans to reflect on our achievements over the past 50 years, and work collectively towards our bright future together as one Singapore.

 NDP1

 

 

  1. NDP’S THEME SONG

This year’s theme song is “Our Singapore”, which is composed by the very talented Dick Lee.

 NDP8

The song is really meaningful to me because it calls on us to not take our present achievements for granted.

 

  1. Vintage parade

We can all look forward to the Vintage Parade, which will re-enact segments of the street parades that took place in the early 1970s. The parade will involve contingents from organisations representative of different sectors across Singapore.

I had a sneak preview of the Vintage Parade that day, and I was really amused by how cute all the participants looked! I could not stop myself from chuckling as a result.

 NDP6

Then I had the honour of taking a picture with SSSGT (R)

Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay from the Singapore Police Force. Yes, I chose to take a picture with him because well, my brother is in the Police Force too!

 NDP5

Just look at how the police uniform has changed over the years! I cannot imagine Sofian in this vintage uniform!

That would be classic, no pun intended.

LOL.

SSSGT (R) Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay first participated in NDP in 1967 when he was in the Police Force! So this year, he is going to be a part of the Vintage Parade for NDP 2015, and he cannot wait to put up a good show for his grandchildren! I wish you all the best, sir!

Here is the Chairman of NDP 2015 Executive Committee (EXCO) Brigadier-General Melvyn Ong interviewing SSSGT (R) Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay.

SO CUTE, RIGHT!

 

  1. WATCH NDP 15 ON LED SCREENS

You can be rest assured that NDP 2015 will invite as many Singaporeans as possible to be part of the festivities by extending the celebrations to various sites around the Marina Bay area.

This includes:

  • Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza
  • The Promontory
  • Merlion Park
  • Marina Barrage
  • Gardens by The Bay

 

Yes yes, the Parade will be broadcast on LED screens at the abovementioned venues!

 

  1. Aerial display of “50”

To commemorate our Golden Jubilee, NDP 2015 will feature new elements such as the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s “50” formation flypast.

  1. Participations of youths & pioneers

This year’s NDP 15 is extra special because of the participation by youths and pioneers. I was even told that the response for the parade this year was so overwhelming till they had to politely turn down so many requests. So many of our youths and pioneers wanted to be a part of NDP 15.

  1. 20:15:00

At exactly 20:15 (hours) all Singaporeans will unite to recite the pledge and sing the national anthem, “Majulah Singapura”, to mark our nation’s Golden Jubilee.

So do ensure that your watch’s timing is not too fast or too slow! LOL.

 

 10.   Finale

Everyone’s favourite, Kit Chan, will be doing the finale! Don’t say I didn’t tell youuuuu.

 

11.      Firework sites

The two firework sites for this year’s National Day Parade will be:

  • The Float @ Marina Bay
  • Padang

These two sites will also be the ticketed sites for Singaporeans to view the NDP 2015 Show!

SO THAT’S ABOUT IT.

I am not trying to be a spoiler or anything by telling you what to expect for NDP 15.

All I am trying to do is to just to let you know how proud I am to be a Singaporean.

 NDP2

 

Happy 50th, my Singapore!

Shine bright like a (Kinohimitsu) diamond

What is that one thing that you really fear as you age?

I WORRY ABOUT THE WRINKLES.

Do you know why some women look older than their actual age? Do you also know why women tend to look older than men of the same age?

AND DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY I LOOK YOUNGER THAN 34?

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL.

Well, besides living in denial all the time, I drink collagen.

HALAL COLLAGEN BY KINOHIMITSU, OKAYYYYYYY!

COLL5

For starters, what is collagen? 

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein which keeps our skin smooth and youthful. Some refer to collagen as the skin’s glue as it gives our skin strength, plumpness, smoothness and elasticity. However, the more we age and the more exposed we are to sun, the more we lose collagen.

 COLL2

YUP, THAT’S ME CHECKING OUT HOW PLUMP AND ELASTIC MY FACE IS.

(WAH CANNOT ALREADY. MUST KEEP DRINKING COLLAGEN!)

Do you know that women actually lose 2.5 times more collagen than men?!

Here are some factors that may cause us to lose collagen:

  • Hormonal changes during menstruation
  • Giving birth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Menopause

 

SACRIFICES US MUMMIES HAVE TO MAKE, HUH? 

So what happens when our bodies produce less collagen?

  • Thinner skin
  • Dry skin
  • More wrinkles
  • Skin aging

 

YIKES!

 Yes ladies, collagen is key to a healthy skin.

COLL4

Want to know why I choose to drink Kinohimitsu Collagen drink over the other brands in the market?

 

HALAL:

Well, firstly, it is halal. All their products are halal, except for their Diamond Nite drink, which is undergoing halal certification. Once Diamond Nite is halal, I am going to drink that one too every night before sleeping!

The one I am drinking currently is Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond. I take it before breakfast on most days, or on days when I am forgetful, before bedtime.

COLL6

Why must we take the collagen drink before breakfast or before bedtime?

 Absorption is always best on an empty stomach. And the best time to repair our skin is always when we are sleeping since skin metabolism rate is at the highest.

TASTY:

The drink is so tasty, it’s almost like drinking your favourite beverage drink. Chill it first in the refrigerator if you want it to be even more tasty. What’s even better is that you can mix your favourite drink with the collagen drink too!

 

SUGAR FREE:

Thirdly, it is sugar free and uses sweetness from fruit extracts.

 

100% NATURAL AND HIGH QUALITY:

Thirdly, Kinohimitsu extracts their collagen from the scales of deep sea marine fishes which explains the quality of their collagen, and the best part? There is no fishy taste!

 

SGS TESTED:

Lastly, it is the only collagen brand that is SGS tested. This means it contains no hormones, no preservatives, no chemicals and no artificial colouring.

Even if you are not a mummy yet like me, it is still advisable for you to start taking collagen drinks. You mean you want to wait till the wrinkles appear, is it? Prevention is better than cure! 

One thing I have noticed after taking Kinohimitsu Collagen Drink is the fact that my makeup stays longer and glides on smoothly. It acts like a natural face primer! That explains why so many of their long time users are raving over this collagen drink!

COLL8

Besides all that, want to know the benefits of drinking collagen?

Drinking Kinohimitsu Diamond Collagen not only helps to slows down signs of aging.

It also:

  • Firms up skin for a more lifted look
  • Tightens pores for velvety-smooth skin
  • Lifts up your bust and bum for a more attractive body shape
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkiles
  • Heals scars and brightens dark spots, pigmentations and blemishes
  • Re-densifies skin dermis for a finely textured and supple skin
  • Seal in precious moisture within skin for lasting retention
  • Lighten skin for snowy-like complexion
  • Strengthens hairs and nails
  • Collagen helps in lubricating joints

I’m guessing not a lot of people know this but do you know that collagen helps in lubricating your joints too? Perfect for working ladies who are constantly wearing heels five days a week at least and for those who experience pain in their joints too! A friend of mine has been experiencing pain in his wrist for a while, and was recommended to take collagen by his doctor. After some time, it did help with the aching and he didn’t feel as much pain in his wrist as before!

YES, EVEN MEN CAN TAKE COLLAGEN!

You should try Kinohimitsu Collagen Men! 

STILL NOT ENOUGH?

 

SERIOUSLY, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT? LOL.

OKAY, TELL YOU WHAT.

ONLY for my readers:

Purchase Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond drink out and enjoy 30% off your total purchase!

Why so FREE?

Usually when you go shopping, you will try the product first before buying and make every purchase value for money, right?

Wouldn’t it be fun if the same thing applied to online shopping as well?

Well, maybe it is possible.

INTRODUCING TO YOU SAMPLE STORE 

 

Sample Store is the first & top tryvertising platform in Singapore that offers FREE samples and FREE membership!

 

WHO DOESN’T LIKE FREEBIES???!!

This is how Sample Store works.

aaaaa16

SEE? EVERYTHING IS FOR FREE ONE!

Registration? FREE

Select samples of your choice? FREE

Delivery? FREE (for the FREE samples only!)

And the best thing is, you get to choose whatever samples you would like to try once you sign up as a member!

 

So I received my samples few days back in this cute packaging!

 sample7

Say, I have redeemed all these samples already!

 

 sample6

 

 

SO MANY!

 sample8

 

LOL.

 

And I am so going to redeem more samples.

Say, I am intending to redeem this.

 sample12

And this.

 sample11

 

This one perhaps.


sample10

And maybe this too.

 

 sample9

 

 

What am I saying?

I CAN REDEEM ALL FOUR AT THE SAME TIME!

 

Yes, that’s right. How Sample Store differentiates itself is the very fact that they allow their members to redeem whatever product they would like to try before delivering the samples to the customers, without any delivery charges! As mentioned earlier, the free delivery is only applicable for FREE samples!

Once you have received the samples, all you need to do is to rate and review the products you have redeemed before you can redeem more free samples in future! Fair enough? And by doing so, other members can study the ratings and reviews which will then give them a better idea on if they should purchase the product or not.

MUMMIES, THEY EVEN HAVE A NEW SAMPLING CATEGORY FOR KIDS!

 sample1

 

YOU CAN REDEEM MUSIC CLASES, KIDS GYM, MATH CLASSES, COOKING CLASSES FOR KIDS, AND MORE!

I was browsing through Sample Store the other day and I chanced upon the free trial baking lessons for kids offered by Genius R Us. Cupcake lesson and cookie lesson, to name a few. So I was thinking, why not redeem that for my girls since the March holidays are here anyway?

 sample2

Check this out.

The retail price of the workshop is actually $45, but if you redeem it, your kid will get to enjoy the trial class for free. Only $10 is needed for material fees!

 sample5

 

Here are some of the ratings from other members with regards to the baking classes conducted by Genius R Us.

Decision making has never been this easy!

TEMPTED ALREADY?

SIGN UP NOW FOR FREE AND BE AMAZED YOURSELF HOW SAMPLE STORE WORKS!

 

Who knows, I might just read your reviews at Sample Store in future before I decide to purchase a particular product.
