The magical world of Harry Potter made it's first stop in Asia, right here in Singapore! *squeal*

Photobucket

The exhibition features hundreds of artifacts in settings inspired by the film sets + authentic costumes and props worn and handled by the actors and crew in the movie themselves!

I've watched all the 8 movies, so this Muggle here is of course very excited to be at Marina Bay Sand's ArtScience Museum to take a peek into what it's like in a place with all that Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Admission Prices

Adult: $24 (Singapore Resident: $20)
Senior: $21 (Singapore Resident: $18)
Child (2-12 years old): $14 (Singapore Resident: $13)

Photobucket
Audio guides are available for rent, at $6 each.

I would recommend you to get it if you aren't into the whole Harry Potter thing, because I suppose it'd be quite informative? I got it for Titanic: The Exhibition and I was definitely much more well-informed. You just have to input the number shown on the exhibit artifacts into the audio guide and you would be able to hear the commentaries.

Photobucket
Do take note that the exhibition is a timed entry so as to control the crowd going into the exhibition.

For example, my ticket states "3pm to 3.59pm". I might not be able to get into the exhibition if I decide to go in even later than the stated time depending on the crowd. So buy the tickets only when you're ready to go in!

Photobucket
Just outside the exhibition is the Flying Ford Anglia (Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets)! It's the car that flew Harry and Ron to Hogwarts in their Second Year, when they missed the Hogwarts Express. It's also the invisible car~ It has appeared in many other scenes in Harry Potter!

Photobucket
I went to the exhibition with Yanni! We blocked the whole long line of people behind us just to take this picture, hahaha oops!

Photobucket
We are ready, are you?

Photobucket

Photobucket
Just before we went into the exhibition area, there's a photo taking session outside where they lent us wands and scarves from either Gryffindor or Slytherin as "props".

Of course, we didn't buy the photos because they were too expensive for poor students like us *sigh*

Photobucket
I love how they displayed the posters of all 8 movies just before we officially went into the exhibition to be amazed!


I didn't take any photos of the artifacts because photography is not allowed..

Well, the exhibition definitely brought back so much memories! I've watched the series of Harry Potter movies since I was a little girl; the actors grew from little cute kids to matured individuals now.. It's like we grew up together. How time flies! There were so many familiar artifacts that I remember so clearly, and also a tv display at the side that showed snippets of scenes from the movie. I was quite surprised that they have Mandrakes there that you can pull out of the pots and they'll wail! It can be quite annoying if all is pulled at the same time though.

One thing that I want to complain about it how short the exhibition was! I was definitely expecting more stuff. Hey, it's 8 movies! :( Oh well.. I shall not be a spoiler, but do expect the exhibition to be about the Hogwarts Arrival, Gryffindor's Common Room, Gryffindor's Boy Dormitory, Hogwarts Classes, Quidditch, Hagrid's Hut (boy is he super tall), The Forbidden Forest, Dark Forces and Great Hall!

Photobucket
There is a exhibition shop when you come to the end of the exhibition, but everything there is so overpriced! The cheapest items were probably the Chocolate Frog with collectible cards and Bertie Bott's Jellybeans at $6 T^T

*TIP
Do remember to bring lots and lots of cash! I wanted to buy the Deathly Hallows necklace, but it's a whooping $120. That's almost like daylight robbery.

Do take note that there is a no re-entry policy! Once you step into the exhibition shop, you cannot go back into the exhibition area again.


Harry Potter: The Exhibition will run from 2 June - 30 September 2012, from 10am to 10pm daily.
Venue: Marina Bay Sand, ArtScience Museum.
Recently, there seems to be a "trend" of hostility happening on public transports here in Singapore.

I was browsing through my Facebook News Feed just now, when I saw this video dated back in January this year showing a couple of old folks fighting and hurling vulgarities at each other over what seems to be like a misunderstanding over bus seats. You could even see one of the man with a bloodied face (see 1:25 onwards).


Also, remember this "Polite Ah Lian VS Auntie" video on the MRT that became the talk around town recently? It seems like no matter what the young lady ("Ah Lian") did, be it giving up her seat or not, either way it is wrong.


Not forgetting the huge Alex Ong accident that happened just a few weeks ago because the old lady pressed the bell late, resulting in the bus stopping past the bus stop.


I was quite shocked to find so many other videos of Singaporeans quarelling in public transports on YouTube. I pondered over this question just now: "If there's an argument going on in the MRT or bus that I am in, how will I react?"

  • If I stood up to say something and tried to stop the fight, some people might applaud me for my bravery, but at the same time, I might also end up being called the busybody. Who knows, I might also risk getting pushed and hit in the face because nobody knows what could happen in a fight when everybody's just so pissed off (if Alex Ong could push an old lady, he could definitely do the same thing to me, right?).
  • If I sat down and asked them to stop fighting, at least I'm doing something to stop them. But what if they hurl nasty words back at me? I might also be called a coward by others, all talk and no action.
  • If I sat down and watched the "show", I'd be wasting so much time watching them, not forgetting the time wasted on waiting and getting questioned by the police after that. Also, what if someone's injured right in front of me, how could I be so bo chup (couldn't care less) about it?And what if I am rushing to an appointment and am already running late? If I wanted to alight, do I just walk past them like that?

To react or not to react, that's the question. So what's the right thing to do?
What would YOU do? Leave a comment on this post and share your thoughts with me, I'd love to hear them!


Anyway, here is a classic incident on the MRT that happened last year. Some auntie went berserk out of nowhere, shouting at people for no reason. Definitely one that I wouldn't forget.

After not being able to make it to Jiong outings in the past (sorry guys, I am really very busy ╥﹏╥), finally, I was able to make time for the one held yesterday evening!

Although we were tucked away at some steamboat place in Bugis (with difficult-to-connect-3G I must add. Oh, the horror.), my first gathering with the Jiongsters was definitely a pleasant one with additional surprise bonuses! Not only was it the biggest gathering with my "classmates" all the way from 囧一二三班, Lee Teng, the host from the show himself was present, together with some of my friends from his fan club.

Photobucket
This is one of the many group photos we took last night. It isn't very complete because some people left already, but anyway here you go!

Photobucket
With 囧爸 Lee Teng! Damn, is he tall when I stood next to him. As you can see, my camwhoring skills are really bad. *le sigh*

I took very little pictures last night because my phone was low in battery, which was a huge regret. But I did take some pictures in other people's phones and cameras! *hint hint, TAG ME GAISEEEE!*

Photobucket
Billy (you guys should know him as 比利王子) was back from his school trip to Europe and got back some chocolates for us. He's going off to LA soon, SO LUCKYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

Anyway, thank you for the yummy chocolate! ♡^▽^♡

Photobucket
Outfit of The Day. I look really horrible, I know. Got my blouse & pants from the RILAKKUMA X BOSSINI collection.

The gathering was a little awkward at times because I didn't know many of the people from 囧三, and a lot of not-so-happy stuff happened towards the end. But it was a successful and happy one, at least for me.
I met friends whom I haven't met in a long long time. It was good catching up with each other and rushing for the last train + laughing at each other in our train cabins opposite of each other (that was fun!). More gatherings like this please! ;)


One year has past since I went for my first recording at MediaCorp for this youth talk show called Let's Talk 你在囧什么?Time really flies so fast and so many memories were made. I know I'm not "famous" in the show or anything (my parts got cut off lolololol), but that's not my purpose of joining in the first place. All that I wanted to achieve by joining this huge family was to gain experiences, TV exposure, know new friends, and to voice out my opinions, on top of so many other things. And they were all achieved. I am satisfied.

Anyway, the new Let's Talk Season 3 episodes will air in August, so be sure to catch it every week! You can visit the Facebook page for more updates and information: https://www.facebook.com/letstalkpage
New Vlog Video!


So sorry that I haven't been vlogging so much.. I'll try to look pretty & dress up more often so I can do videos, ok? ;)

This video is randomly taken at the Food Court in Marina Bay Sands, hahaha! Sorry if the background is a little noisy, I'm trying to experiment the places I can do videos at.
Nevertheless, enjoy! If you have any video requests that you want me to do, feel free to comment on my videos or leave a question on my Formspring. Lots of love *blows flying kisses*

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I headed down to some KOSE stores recently to asked the Beauty Advisers for their expert views on the KOSE SEKKISEI Save the Blue products. Here's what I've got!

"Why should people buy KOSE SEKKISEI Save the Blue products?"

Firstly, this campaign is for a very environmental cause! For the Save the Blue Limited Edition Travel Set ($142), it is so convenient for people to bring along when they travel. Also, it is cheaper to buy in a set with so many of your favourite KOSE products, especially more now since it is having a promotion now. For the Save the Blue Limited Edition Lotion ($121), it has been really popular all these years. It smells good and has whitening effect. All of us Asian girls like that, don't we? ;)

"Are all the products suitable for everyone to use?"

Normally the SEKKISEI range is suitable for all ages and skin types as the ingredients are herbal extracts. Even though our skin are catered to different needs, you don't have to worry because our friendly KOSE staff will check on your skin condition first before recommendation.

"Which is your favourite product from Save the Blue?"

The SEKKISEI Lotion. It smells good, is very moisturising and has the whitening effect! It is better than regular toners. The alcohol in it is not the bad kind of alcohol that is made from chemicals. In fact, the alcohol found in our Lotions have antibacterial properties.

"Any beauty tips?"

Use a cotton pad to dab on the products onto your face. You can also use the Lotion and make your very own Lotion mask! You can soak the lotion into paper masks and leave it on for 15 minutes. It helps in brightening, hydrating and whitening your skin. It is recommended to get the paper masks from KOSE counters which are made of 100% cotton. 15 pieces are sold for $7.





One beauty tip from me is not to neglect your neck, behind your neck and behind your ears. Remember to apply your beauty products there.

Also to remind you, Limited Edition Save the Blue products will only be on sale till until 31 July 2012, so go grab them! Stay beautiful everyone! ;)

Hello good looking!

I am here to tempt you with the KOSE SEKKISEI Save the Blue products again! Not forcing you or anything, but trying to make you feel jealous of me (and maybe gain your interest at the same time) because it's such a great product. I dare say that because I've tried it for myself. (^_−)☆

Photobucket
In case you aren't aware, KOSE is currently having this Save the Blue project where part of the proceeds from your purchase will be donated to Tropical Marine Science Institute of the NUS, for research, education and conservation efforts of Singapore's coral reefs.

From 1 June to 31 July 2012, Save the Blue Limited Edition SEKKISEI Lotion (360ml) will be sold at $121, and the SEKKISEI Travel Set will be sold at a special price of $142. Yup, the special packaging of the products is only during the project period!

Photobucket
This is the SEKKISEI Lotion!

Features:
  • A mild yet effective, refreshing lotion that penetrates instantly to get rid of dullness and promotes an even, glowing skin tone.
  • Improves skin texture for brightening effects, reventing pigmentation, freckles and dehydration. Also helps to reduce redness and to refine pores troubles.
  • For all skin types.
How To Use:
  • Use every day and night.
  • Generously pour lotion on a cotton pad filled with 3/4 wet amount and pat onto skin.
Herbal Extracts:
  • Peony Root Extract, Perilla Extract, Coix Seed Extract, Angelica Extract

Photobucket

My Say:

This is a product that is adored by many. I've heard of many great things about this lotion; it has been really popular for so many years and I can see why! I have to say that I really love the smell of it (very fragrant!) and it absorbs into my skin really well. I'm quite surprised at how moisturing this product is, and I love how it's made up of herbal extract ingredients so I don't have to worry about having all that harmful chemicals on my face! It did improve my skin texture and it's amazing how I wake up to better looking skin everyday.

This lotion has got a whitening effect too, but maybe because I haven't used it for that long so I couldn't see much of the effect yet.

Photobucket
This is the Travel Set!

It contains the SEKKISEI Lotion (100ml), SEKKISEI White Powder Wash (20g), SEKKISEI Emulsion (70ml) and SEKKISEI Cream Excellent (40g).

Photobucket
This is the SEKKISEI White Powder Wash (20g)!

Features:
  • A unique fine, fresh, snow-like powder that delivers highly gentle washing with a rich, creamy lather to a bright, translucent skin.
  • Get rids of dullness while washing by removing impurities and old skin cells containing melanin pigments.
  • For all skin types, also suitable for oilier skin.
How To Use:
  • Use after cleansing oil nightly. Use alone during the day.
  • Pour out powder about 20 cent coin worth amount and add water to work into rich lather.
  • Work lather on face and rinse well.
Herbal Extracts:
  • Peony Root Extract, Perilla Extract, Coix Seed Extract, Angelica Extract



My Say:

This is definitely a money saver because you just need to use a small amount and lather it with water twice a day. My face is reallyyy oily and this powder wash cleanses my face really well! My skin feels so squeaky clean after every use! *.* It is very mild and gentle with a very light scent. I also love how it forms a velvety and smooth, thick foam.

My only problem is that I can't really control the amount of powder that I want to pour out. Sometimes I pour too much and it's very troublesome to pour it back into the container.

Photobucket
This is the SEKKISEI Emulsion (70ml)!

Features:
  • A quick absorbing, lightweight moisturizer with highly emollient formula that brightens and softens skin.
  • Contains Vitamin C to reduce melanin production, prevents inflammation, freckles and aging spots.
  • For all seasons moisturizer, essence-like texture with non-oily after-feel.
  • For all skin types.
How To Use:
  • After lotion every nightly.
  • After lotion, apply 1 or 2 pumps onto cotton pad, gently sooth over the skin.
Herbal Extracts:
  • Inula Britanica Flower Extract, Coix Seed Extract, Angelica Extract, Melothria Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract.


My Say:

This product has a very milky texture. It is very gentle which is good for people with sensitive skin! It brightened up and smoothed my skin. Also, it moisturises well, and I love to use it around my eyes.

What I am not fond of it though, is that it doesn't absorb fully into my skin. It's quite sticky and I could feel that my skin was greasy and it felt quite uncomfortable, so I wouldn't recommend it to people with oily skin like me. It is also better to pump out just a little bit of it instead of too much like I did.

Photobucket
This is the SEKKISEI Cream Excellent (40g)!

Features:
  • A night cream with anti-ageing formula enriched with emollients that enhances skin suppleness and brightens skin texture.
  • Anti-aging product which provides strong emollient effect to skin.
  • Contains ingredients to boost the resistance of aging skin.
  • Suitable for drier skins.
How To Use:
  • Last step of skincare regime at night, apply a pearl size amount over whole face and massage gently into skin.
Herbal Extracts:
  • Chinese Pearl Barley, Angelica Extract, Melothria Heterophylla, Korean Ginseng, Cordyceps Sinensis Extract


My Say:

Well, obviously this is not a product that is suited for me because my skin is not that matured yet, so I passed it to my mum. First thing she said to me when she opened the Cream Excellent was: "WAH! Smells so lovely!" I could see that her skin getting so much softer and supple. Only a little amount is needed for each application so it can last a longggg time.

It can be quite thick and rich though!

You guys should know by now that I am nominated as a Finalist in the annual Singapore Blog Awards organised by omy.sg, under leading media group Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) *SCREAM!*

Photobucket

Way to go me, I must say. So here's a E-Interview on what are my thoughts and feelings on the nomination. Let's go!



1. How do you feel about being one of finalists in Singapore Blog Awards 2012?

One word to describe how I feel is definitely SHIOK! I honestly didn't expect myself to get nominated. I was logging into the SBA website (http://sgblogawards.omy.sg) during class to see who were the finalists since everyone was so excited about it on Twitter, and I literally stunned in my seat when I saw my face in the Y Bloggist category.

Photobucket

2. When did you start blogging and what drew you to it? Where do you get inspiration for your blog content?

I first started blogging when I was in Primary 6/Secondary 1, so that's almost 6-7 years ago? At that time, blogs were quite the "in" thing and even the most popular girl in school had a blog, so curious me wanted to give it a try too. I was completely clueless about HTML stuff at first, and sadly no one wanted to help me with it, so it gave me the chance to explore something that is very new to me. Also, it was very convenient for me since I'm always on the computer every time I got home from school. I loved how I am able to share my daily thoughts in this tiny little space (my first few blog posts were super duper lengthy ramblings), and it was also a platform for me to think back about my day and practice writing at the same time.

I get blog inspirations EVERYWHERE! Call me weird, but my brain cannot stop thinking about stuff sometimes. The wackiest ideas suddenly strikes on me at the strangest times.

3. How do you feel about the other Finalists in your category this year? How do you think you will fare compared to them?

I personally know some of them so we're like supporting each other and having a "friendly competition", hahaha! Well, I've read all of the Finalists blogs and they seem like well known bloggers with a lot of readers........

Photobucket

I don't know much about them so I can't judge them, but obviously all of us work very hard for our blogs so I wish everyone the best of luck!

I honestly don't know how I'll fare since we all have different writing styles, so I guess I'll just leave it to fate! 

4. Give a reason why readers should visit your blog and vote for you?

My blog background is yellow in colour, so I hope that every reader who visits my blog will feel happy and leave happily. ;D

I believe many of you guys can see my hard work in trying to come up with ideas for blog content and even in finding time to blog despite my really busy schedule! This is the first time my blog is nominated for something so huge, so sarpork me leh!

Got the chance to attend the SHINE Youth Festival Media Conference recently! I was definitely very excited because it's the 2nd year that I am attending this event held by the National Youth Council. Last year's was such a blast!

Photobucket
My outfit of the day!

Photobucket

Photobucket
There were laptops on each table, showing the SHINE Youth Festival's page.

The theme for this year is Fire Up Your Passion! Can't wait for the sizzling hot event to start alright.

Photobucket
There was also these paper weights made out of recycled water bottles on our tables. So creative!

Photobucket
To kick off the event, we had a really youthful singing and dancing performance by Gleeful Moments who are Pitch to SHINE finalists from John and Deniece Glee Studios.

I totally loved their retro outfits and the songs they picked!

Photobucket
Next up was a panel discussion with the SHINE Organising Commitee.

On the left is a face that some of you might be familiar with. He's Mr Martin Tan, the Chairman of SHINE 2012 Steering Committee! Still as friendly as ever ;)

And in the middle is Mr Muhammad Nabil, the Co-Chairman of SHINE Organising Committee.

What is SHINE Youth Festival about?

The SHINE Youth Festival returns with a fiery heart for the community! Themed "Aspirations", SHINE 2012 enables youth to unleash their aspirations and passion for the community through two bran new initiatives - Pitch to SHINE and Pledge to SHINE!

In it's 8th year running, SHINE Youth Festival is a platform for youths between the age of 15 and 35 to indulge in their passion. The initiative celebrates youths’ creativity and dynamism and encourages them to use SHINE Youth Festival as the stage to demonstrate their energy and grow their skills and talents.

Organised by the National Youth Council, steered by a committee made up of representatives from youth organisations and executed by a Youth Organising Committee consisting of volunteers, the vibrant and colourful SHINE Youth Festival is held in the designated Youth Month in July. SHINE Youth Festival features an exciting line up of events and activities is presented by its 4 key marquee partners: Mascot Parade, O School, Singapore Street Festival and the Singapore Management University.

Photobucket
So what's up this year?

  • ‘Aspirations’ theme:
-> New theme to inspire youth to dream big and take risks
-> New tagline – “Fire up your passion!”
  • Pitch to SHINE:
-> Launched early this year to identify and fund youth projects that promote worthy causes and make a difference in the community
-> A total of 16 projects awarded the Pitch to SHINE grant
-> Projects are themed ‘Youth Culture’, ‘Youth Sports’ and ‘Youth Action’ and will be carried out during SHINE 2012
  • Pledge to SHINE:
-> A new pledging portal, Pledge to SHINE (www.shine.nyc.sg), has been officially launched for youth to pledge their aspirations
-> Highlighting NYC’s new emphasis on igniting youth social movements in Singapore

Photobucket
To spread the heat, we had the people from NUH's Dreamcatchers - The Quest talk to us about Chronic Illness. I was sincerely touched by their courage to live like a normal youth, and it kind of made me ponder about my life.

Chronic illnesses are not disabling, in fact, it represents the possibilities if one dares to dream and put their hearts to it.

If you are interested, they will be having a creative visual art exhibition featuring artworks created by their adolescent patients with chronic illnesses depicting the theme of “Aspirations” with the central messaging that chronic illnesses are not disabling. The event will showcase their youth talents with the aim of creating public awareness about childhood chronic illness.

Photobucket
Up next was about Luminance! 2012 by The Living! Project.

Luminance! 2012 is Singapore's first youth light art festival. It is a development platform for youths to embrace their passion for art. There will be nights of whimsical light art and pulsating performances from 23-30 June.

A total of 27 artworks have been curated for Luminance! 2012, featuring renowned sculptors and many first-time youth artists from different walks of life. Be inspired as you soak up an atmosphere of infectious artistic energy and be part of the inaugural festival celebrating art, youth and community by youths, for youths!

Photobucket
Check out the buckets of plastics behind. They are made from Meiji bottles, and they look so stunning when the lights inside the bucket were turned on!

Photobucket
Lastly, we had a performance by really talented top yoyo performers. THEIR YOYOS HAVE LIGHT OMG SO COOL!

They will be part of the Singapore Street Festival (pssst, there'll be a yoyo competition going on, so prepare ALL your yoyos!)

Photobucket
Tron-like machine made of cardboard spotted! It is painstakingly crafted out by hand. Kudos to whoever did this!!!
