Ballet Showcase

I have been learning for about three years now, excluding the years from my primary school. Finally, I got to perform on stage again with my fellow ballerinas when Ms Joni put on a performance just last week!

It took us about 1.5-2 months to put everything together, with more sessions per week as it draws closer to the day of the performance. Just a few photos from the day of the performance last week =)

Entering through this door, the performance was held at Siglap South Community Centre.

The kids and their parents coming to help them with their make up. The rest of us were rehearsing and practising our steps,  we were all so excited and nervous at the same time! Super thankful to Esther for helping me tie a proper bun that is so secured, I can finally haz a proper bun! Mine kept falling out during class. And also to Sherlyn for doing my eye makeup, and the rest for all that bobby pins!

Just before the performance is about to start, we took a quick photo on stage. Missing Sherlyn here!

No prize for guessing where am I on stage!

Many thanks to Ms Joni for organizing this, she's got so much patience and energy for everyone!

And the finale!

Genting XYZ Deluxe Room and Superstars of Magic 4

In case you have not noticed, a new era for Genting Highlands has begun! The transformation has taken place over the last few years and is set to unveil in the coming years. The first of the few is the new living spaces at First World Hotel.

Being the largest hotel in the world, phase one of the hotel's extension is now opened with 412 rooms with a balance of 874 room, totalling a number of 1286 rooms. Aiming to total the number of rooms at 7351, First World Hotel wants to impress hotel visitors with courteous and professional staffs.

Gone were the days where the rooms are dimly lighted, the latest rooms are splashed with colours and comfortably lighted to a warm setting.

The simplicity of the room with lively, vibrant colours is designed to be chic and funtional. It's a standard hotel experience to centre on a good bed for a good night's rest.

Frosted glass walls divides the toilet into three sections - toilet, shower and sink. It's a modest amount of space but clean and functional.
The rest of the room includes a flat-screen television with in-house and local entertainment, telephone, mini fridge and a small safe. Not to forget the kettle, in case you need a good cup of coffee in the morning!

Within walking distance to Indoor theme park
First World Hotel is within walking distance to various highlights of Resorts World Genting. The theme park, cineplex and other entertainments are easily accessible. Also, the outdoor 20th century Fox World Theme Park is set to open in 2016, how exciting!

After-dinner entertainment
At the time of visit, Superstars of Magic 4 show is on-running its 4th year at the international showroom.

The Genting International Showroom caters up to 1000 people, equipped with latest sound and lighting system as well as theatrical stage equipment.

Whether they are from East or West, they performed with highlights to how magic has evolved wtih technology.

Magicians who are performing came from various countries and are very popular:

-Alana Moelmann, the new generation princess of magic from Germany that performs the act by producing items out of her leather jacket with 6 hands

-Jeff Lee, an award-winning celebrity magician from Taiwan who performs TV magic and modern music.

-Ted Kim, the current FISM originality act champion holder from Korea, who infused modern screen mapping technology and LED projector technology into his act. A brilliant act that you can only understand by watching his performance, it's breath-taking!

One Gun, also from Korea. He's so cute that he has got girls screaming for him when he came on stage. He's really good at changing the colours of the shirts, right in front of your eyes!

Joseph Gabriel, regarded as the Godfather of Dove Magic. Hailing from US, his shows had headlined Broadway in the past. Countless doves magically appeared, and it just got more and more, until he produced not one, but three geese!

We joking asked if they were American geese but no, they are from Malacca!

Last but not least, this person might be a familiar face to all. Jay Mattioli, he first made his mark as a finalist magician on America's Got Idol, entertaining the crowd with his humour and charm.

Genting Trip part 1

Waking up early in the morning, Conan and I set out on a journey to the North. It was a trip that I'm eager to take, despite the long journey up. I am very much looking forward to the cold air and entertainment up in Genting Highlands! It was an invitation extended by Resort World Genting, for us to experience with recent makeover of the First World Hotel that boasts to be the largest hotel in the world.

The past few years may have been a little bit quieter due to the closure of the outdoor theme park, but the entertainment hasn't been on a downslide as they ramp up the scene with plenty of performances, restaurants and even an indoor snow city! Joining the Behind-the-Scenes tour by Genting, we all trooped to the indoor Snow City with thick jackets and gloves. So for those who wish to enjoy an ultimate cold experience up in Genting Highlands, head on to Snow City!
Fake snow was created by science, and we were all given a chance to work the magic with our bare hands!
Pouring a small amount of water into the beaker of powder,

it soon coagulated into flakes of fake snow. Not that it's edible, but they are not harmful to the body if you accidentally eat it. It does feel really cold and the colours turned out really pretty!

So pretty! They can last up to two weeks, then it becomes what I don't know. Hahahaha!

It's so cold! Cold, cold, cold!

And with the rest?

Cold cold cold x many many!

At the next checkpoint, we got to try making food with our own hands. The ingredients are provided and two chefs are there to guide us.

Plain donuts

The chef clearly enjoying the attention on him as he gently sprinkles chocolate flakes onto the donut.

Giving it a try on our own.

Conan and his creation

Then next, we get to learn how to make our very own bento! This got me very excited because I really like the Japanese cuisine! But don't expect a restaurant standard with me making it, hehe.
Excited! Le chef helping me with the rice since I'm not very good at it.

Mine is a rabbit holding to some balloons. But geez, it doesn't even look like any cute bento at all.


I was eager to gobble it up but Wei En reminded us that dinner is around the corner and there, we'll be having a feast! Gosh, I almost forgot and was very much looking forward to a good steamboat dinner amidst the cold weather. Whoopeeeeeeeeeeee! This restaurant is called Resort Seafood, located at Level 1, Resort Hotel.
Operating hours
Monday - Sunday: 12pm - 2.30pm (Lunch)
                           6pm - 10pm (Dinner)
For bookings, do call them at +6 03 6101 1118

I look like a waitress here, no I'm not!!! I'm the one who couldn't wait to get dinner started, hehe!

The mouth-water food laid out right before us, surrounding the yin-yang style hot pot. The two soup choices were spicy tom yam and herbal chicken, super nourishing okay! With the soup base selected, you can choose to go for the ala carte dishes or get the set menus with prices ranging from RM108RM to RM638 nett.

Our menu consists of 3 types of meat, chicken, fish and ostrich meat. That's right, that plate of dark red is ostrich meat! Honestly, that was something unexpected because it's not a common meat anywhere. But hey, I'm game for it!

Dinner is proven to be really good, and I couldn't stop eating all the yummy food, even after everyone had their fill! The spicy tom yam is really spicy, but tastes really good in the cold weather. Everyone seemed to crave for that more than the herbal chicken soup. Not just that, there is always room for desserts! I'm very curious to why the dessert is called steamboat ice cream, so when it arrived...

Ice-cream served in a steamboat pot, with ice in the centre to keep the ice cream cold! Generous servings of various fruits topped the ice-cream, making the combination so delicious that I could not resist going for a second serving!

Now you know, le greedy pig spotted. Hehe!

The Harmon Kardon Experience

Recently I was exposed to the brand, harman/kordon. With many thanks to Alvin and IMS Marketing, I was given a set of SOHO white to try out! Knowing how music can affect one's mood, I am super stoke to check out this headphones.

The SOHO headphones were also available in black. It was a sleek leather and stainless steel finish, and has full compatibility with Android and iOS devices when it comes to remote controlling and streaming functionally.
Frequency Response - 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Maximum Input Power - 30 mW
Input Impedance - 32 ohms
Sensitivity - 100 dB SPL/V

The set comes with two sets of cable, one straight cable and one cable with universal one-button remote. The in-line remote cables gave great help to long internet conversations with clear sounds, not to mention, good quality music on the go! The magnetic clip makes changing the cables so easy.
The hard shell allows you to change the cables easily.


The SOHO headphones were slim and foldable which makes storage and bringing it out a breeze! It’s sophisticated design made it ready for everyday use and adds a chic look to the user’s look. Trimming away the excess material, Harmon Kardon's interchangeable metal bands allows you to tweak around to fit your head size. The comfort level is pretty good though I would not recommend people with big heads to use this as they may find the slim metal bands insecure for them. I do however think that it cups my ear quite comfortably!

Look at how it fits in its slim-line carrying case!

To have a personal experience with them, head down to their showrooms to get a feel of how sounds can make a difference to your mood!

Singing in the Rain to make a splash here!

Being a lover for musicals and plays, I jumped in excitement when I received an invitation to watch Singin' in the Rain musical which was held at the Marina Bay Sands Mastercard Theatre.

In summary, the storyline brings us back to the late 20's , the early years of Hollywood film making when it was still making silent movies and with the introduction of audio recording, it rolls out a series of events which led the cast to find out about some of the technical issues that it comes with, things such as microphone placement issues and also audio/video synchronization issues which churned out lots of laughter and applause from the audience. Apart of finding out issues, there were also solutions and techniques that came up, such as sound dubbing and lip syncing.

The story goes as popular silent film star, Don Lockwood together with co-star Lina Lamont and friend, Cosmo Brown get caught in the transition from silent films to talking pictures (films w/ audio) and through a chain of event which got Don Lockwood falling in love with Kathy Selden, who would later in the play, be the voice of Lina Lamont to help save the production ' The dueling cavalier ' because of Lina's terrible voice.

I suppose the favourite scene for everyone is where rain pours down after Don Lockwood walks Kathy Selden home and start dancing in the "rain". Waves of rain water were swishing towards the front row audiences! Oh yes, if you were wondering, they were given ponchos and we saw some of them rushing to put on their ponchos for protection!

Birthday Treat for Myself

I realized that it's been forever (not literally) since I last upload anything on this space! Shall post a few pictures taken on my birthday last month. Fine dining was like an annual affair but I decided to skip it this time and went for something cheaper, more sumptuous and a whole lot more than fine dining!

I went to Todai (really, people couldn't stop making fun of the name lol), lunch hour costs $75 nett. I won't say there's a lot of variety but the food is really good. There's no sashimi at the Japanese section but there's sushi.

Then there's a lot of crab meat that I was looking forward to! Muahahaha, let's go mad with the crabs!
How many times did I went back for a refill? I can't remember.

Different cuisine available. Woohoo! See that brow chunk there? They are escargot, omg! I took a huge spoonful of it, yummy!
I was a little disappointed that they don't have any birthday special offers or anything =(

Then we took a walk at Gardens by the Bay cause I haven't been there before, so many flowers!... And tourists. But what a beautiful place! It was really sunny and I wasn't too keen to explore the outdoors too much. Took a flower shot but I'm ain't hipster enough, hahaha.

At the end of the day, Todai may be expensive but I would love to go there again with my friends, there's the 3-for-1 promotion which I think is really worth it! Food makes me happy, very happy =D Last not but the least, thank you everyone for your well wishes!

Rubbers Movie Review

When I was first invited to this movie, I had no idea what to expect. After all, my handsome friend Smith, who's a lifestyle cum sex brogger invited me to watch such an RA movie. It definitely came as a surprise after I found out that it's R21, a movie made in local by our local talents and actors! I was very excited, what more it's 3 stories weave into one movie.

Cumming soon... On 30 April 2015
"Singapore, the present day, 14 Feb. In the middle of having sex on Valentine's Day, womaniser Adam Kok (Alaric Tay) is dumped by girlfriend Eve (Gillian Tan) for refusing to use a condom. Unable to get any other girlfriends to come round to slake his desire, Adam fantasises about his favourite AV star, Kawaii Momoko (Oon Shu An).

Meanwhile, the elderly Hua (Catherine Sng), fed up with husband Niu (Marcus Chin) always visiting a prostitute, Mai Chun (Fiona), in Geylang red-light district, considers divorce. However, she delays her decision after being sold a dildo on a three-day trial by sex-aids salesman Leslie (Cheong Yew Mun).

Elsewhere, journalist Bao Ling (Yeo Yann Yann), 40, who's been man-less for the past six years, comes home and imagines a human Durian Condom (Lee Chau Min) in her flat; begging to be used, as its expiry date is due, the condom urges her to get laid quickly. Bao Ling contacts a "plumber" called Thor (Julian Hee) and waits in readiness.

In the meantime, Adam wakes up to find he's wearing a condom that he can't get off. He calls the civil defence, but a female officer (Kym Ng) brands him a pervert. Momoko then appears and tells Adam she's punishing him for his refusal to use condoms. However, when she offers to suck it off, she becomes attached to his crotch.

Bao Ling's efforts to have sex with Thor all lead to nothing, and he finally admits that he needs some human understanding before he jumps into bed with a woman.

Meanwhile, Niu, reminiscing about a stunt involving condoms that he pulled on Hua at high school 50 years ago, has an idea about how to woo her back again."
-Filmbiz Asia

What I can say is that, this is a very Singaporean movie. With a smattering of Singlish, Mandarin and Hokkien, the veteran actors were able to accurately portray out the frustrations and desires towards sex. Even though the scenes doesn't weave in smoothly, the director enjoyed using flashbacks to make the audience reminisce. And I think everyone's favourite story is the one with Oon Shu An. Acting as an enthusiastic Japanese AV star, she and Adam plays out an unrealistic but hilarious nightmare about not wearing a condom. I have(or heard, I suppose) not seen it coming but gosh, she does have a really sexy voice!

Here's the trailer:
