The theme for this year is 60’s Fever, and therefore my sister and I dressed up as 60’s as we can. Got feel? (ha-ha)

Also wore my Glossi sunglasses on my head to complete the look.

nEbo 5th Birthday Bash!

Advertorial

Last Saturday nEbO celebrated its 5th birthday bash at Downtown East!

I hope you guys were there at the event! For those who couldn’t make it, here are the highlights of that day!

nEbo invited Enigma, their magic interest group, to perform a series of street and stage magic to interact with the crowd for the opening act.

We were also being invited on stage for some games too!

The cast of the popular Channel 8 TV drama series On the Fringe were also present at the event!

Besides a short interview on how these up–and-coming stars cope with the work and studies, they were also invited to play charades with the audiences! Just look at how crowded the Events Square became!

Students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic held their mini flea market at the Alley at the same time.

Many interesting items such as accessories, clothing and food were sold at different stalls. There were also Orange Deals going on where an item in the bazaar was sold at a really cheap price.

Spending a minimum of $10 at the Bazaar would allow you to enter the mini lucky draw! Ju Ann was so lucky to win the first lucky draw held!

There was also a singing flash mob lead by the nEbO champions. The mob came up too sudden and surrounded us.

The most exciting part of the event was the Crazy Bidding segment! Items such as Ipod Nano and Crumpler bag were sold off starting from $5!

It was very chaotic when a group of students tried to gather whatever cash they had on them in hope to win the Razer anansi keyboard!

It was indeed a crazy experience. LOL.

Also, Youtube star Toh Yifan and FS Acoustics also sang a number of songs for us. They were also being invited to share with us their passion for music and their achievements.

Not forgetting to take a picture with the bloggers and organiser present!

Event: Kara Showcase 2012

Advertorial

Kara is coming to Singapore!

(Ok, I’m not a fan of kpop and probably only listen to a few kpop songs, but after listening to their single “Honey” and some other songs such as “Mister” and “Step”, I think their tunes are catchy enough to put them in my mp3 player.)

The band name Kara comes from the greek word “chara”, which was interpreted as “sweet melody”. It currently consist of 5 members: Park Gyuri, Han Seungyeon, Jung Nicole, Goo Hara and Kang Jiyoung.

Their recent Japanese album titled “Super Girl” was certified platinum within two weeks of release, with sales exceeding 450,000 copies and was the first Kpop group to top Oricon’s weekly singles chart.

In 2012, Kara won 5 awards in the 26th Japan Gold Disc Award which include “Best 3 Albums” and “Best Asian Artist”.

The group will be in Singapore for the KARA Showcase 2012, held at RWS on 10th July 2012. They will also be holding their first fan meeting at Causeway Point on 9th July 2012, in conjunction with the launch of Kara’s fragrance – K5J.

GV Jurong Point Re-opening

Jurong Point’s Golden Village cinema finally re-opened its doors today after 3 months of renovation!

GV Jurong Point offered the Jurong residents a convenient movie-viewing experience since its opening in 1995. After the $4.5 million dollar renovation, patrons can expect a more comfortable and quality movie experience from them!

Courtesy of Omy.sg, I was very lucky to be one of the 25 bloggers to be able to inform you about the opening of GV Jurong Point! So I brought my sis along with me!

Other than complete refurbished box office, common areas, washrooms and candy bar counter, you can also look forward to 6 fully digital cinema halls which have a total capacity of 1062 seats with 14 berths set aside for wheelchair bound patrons. Talk about universal design and accessibility! 😀

We also caught Marvel’s The Avengers as well and got a chance to experience the 7.1 Dolby Sound system with premium-grade EAW (Eastern Acoustic Works) speakers from the US, stadium seating, wall-to-wall Spectro screens and etc.

You also need to check out the awesome sightlines that cinema hall offers!

I think the best part of all is the wider and more luxurious cinema seats and wider leg room! Good news to me because I like to sit cross-legged in the cinema!

To kickstart the re-opening, Auntie Lucy made a guest appearance at GV Jurong Point and popped in to our hall for a short interview/filming with the OMY crew:

Sorry, that’s the only clear image I got of him.

(Psst, The Avengers was good! Though I wasn’t a fan of superheros but I kinda know these characters exist and was explaining to my sis who they are during the movie. I love the funny bits in some scenes! :D)
