I won a global social media competition and will be flown to Social Media Week in New York!?

I can barely believe it… I made a really 15 second video for a global social media competition called #SMWreporter, and I won it!!!! I’m one of three winners from countries all over, and we will all be flying to the US for Social Media Week New York, 17-21 Feb 2014. Such an honour!!!

One of the winners is a lovely girl Hum, who I actually stalked all over social media because I absolutely loved her creative video submission. She’s completely the sort of personality that I know I will completely be in sync with. I can’t wait to meet her and she’ll be flying in from Toronto.

The third winner is Anthony, a talented and good looking chap – He speaks with swag, hosts TV shows and is part of the MTV Voices programme in the US.

The competition description was to make a simple and short video, to show why you should be picked as the winner for Social Media Week. I tried to film a few more complicated ideas and trans-media stories, but ended up filming this concept instead. I knew I could make good quality and authentic video content that would show social media in a fun way, which was probably what the company wants. (I don’t have many skills, but I know I got this pat down!) However, I was really embarrassed to show my personality at first – what if everyone thinks I look stupid (I obviously do)?! But hey, screw it. I’ve regularly attended Social Media Week in Singapore to learn more about the industry, and a trip to New York for an event that I’m passionate about is worth any risk of embarrassment.

HUGE thanks to all of you who watched and enjoyed the video, so glad that none of you laughed too hard! Ok, you probably did, but it’s fine! This is the furthest place that my blog has ever taken me, and I would have never in my wildest dreams ever thought I could come this far.

Your support on my Facebook posts, Twitter updates, Instagram stories and blogposts here have been the reason why I am still writing and getting somewhat recognition for it. Love You Wrong Time honestly wouldn’t be what it is without you guys. Shoutout to Hikaruchiou, Colin, Privefleur, Peter Squidg, Bboy rice and so many more of you guys who are always showing me love online! I’ve always been very interested in creating video content and this incredible win has given me more confidence to explore this medium. f I start making more silly videos and playing with pink feathered costumes, please know that it is completely your fault…!

EXCITING UPDATE: I will be shifting to a .com very soon and I’m really excited to show you the stunning design that my creative team and I have been working so hard on for almost a year. My own company website will be launched soon too, and I’m going to also prepare and print new namecards for the endless learning and networking I want to achieve in New York. Bring it on!

Once in awhile, I get messages from friends and internet peeps, asking me how I have so many friends, influential contacts, free holidays and travel, cool experiences, vip access, awesome loved ones, and usually why I’m always so positive and deliriously happy…

Thank you for living vicariously through me – I worry that I’m not a good role-model at times to people who may dislike or misunderstand certain parts of my life. Of course, I’m not perfect so be prepared for my mistakes as well. I don’t want to inspire your envy, but instead, I want you to know that you can actually have what I have (seriously).

Let me start from the beginning.

On Christmas Day, sometime long ago and far away, a baby was born from a virgin. Say what? Yes you heard it, born from a virgin, not from lust. This baby was a pure and perfect man – different from any of us. He was holy, sent into this earth to walk among the evil, the sick, and the broken. We all know how f-ed up the world can be. If you have a horrible boss or deal with awful people, you know this already.

GOD almighty in all his glaring glory is too great for any of us earthlings to ever reach, there is no bridge – but His Son Jesus actually came right here, to walk among us sinners. He made HISTORY healing people, I see miracles everyday in the PRESENT, and the bible has proven and clearly documented the events of the FUTURE – some have already happened, other things will.

Jesus died with nails in his bloody hands, pierced by the same people who knew of his eternal glory and power – but were too scared of the selfish consequences from admitting it. He came back to life after death, because after all, He was God’s Son. Life is created from God’s breath.

“Oh this is all just a story,” Some people tell me. And I ask them, “then why is God so real to me?”

Once a year, the world looks for a joyful father figure that gives gifts freely and generously. You’re looking at the wrong man – it’s not Santa. Jesus Christ is this meaning of Christmas, but His love overflows in my life not just on this day, but everyday. It’s such an amazing gift I would even wish it on my worst enemy. It’s life-changing, hey look at me. There was always something missing in my life, until God found me. (I will never forget January 2013, the day I encountered God for the first time.)

Life is basically just incomplete without God (in fact it can even be awful), because HE is the one who breathed life into you. How can you doubt all the awesome things that he wants to do?

He knows the differences between what you want and what you need, the thoughts in your head, and the secrets in your heart. He also knows better than you, because He created you.

I’m not promising things will be perfect, but God promised good things to those who truly love and follow Him. Do I get stressed? Sure. Do I worry about things sometimes? I guess I do. Do I have challenges that stumble me? Wa lau eh of course lah. But I’m quite possibly, living the happiest and fulfilling life – I may not be the richest kid around, but I know I have riches far beyond (and better than) money.

“ALL, GOOD things come from The Lord” – This means, nothing bad is from God. Everything good is from God. It’s totally none of my business if you don’t believe, but hey it just means that you’re blocking yourself from the blessings that he wants to pour on your life. Why refuse something good that someone wants to give you?

Life is good not because I was good enough to deserve it, but because God is great. I’m just an ordinary girl living an extraordinary life.

Ask me or a Christian friend about Jesus. I’m not hard to find online, visit New Creation Church sometime, or you can even just Google “Jesus”. Give some meaning to your Christmas. Give God a chance to show you His love today. The sooner you realize it, you actually receive it.

Merry Christmas everyone. What an incredible 2013 I’ve had since I decided to pursue God first and all other good things have started to chase me. Thanks to everyone who has brought joy to my life. May you all have a blessed 2014!

 

– CHRISTMAS 2013 –

Christmas has always been undisputedly my favourite time of the year. I countdown the months to this very day, but this year’s Christmas celebrations has been the stuff of sweet dreams. Maybe I’m just in high(er) spirits. It was a month filled with family, good friends, excellent food, lots of catch ups and the obligatory hugs and laughs.

2013 has significantly been the first year that I’ve ever been officially unemployed and ventured out into starting my own business. It’s really bewildering that this has also been the first year where I’ve been able to afford brand name gifts for loved ones, and have also likewise received some really incredible, undeservedly amazing gifts. (Most of the time, I’m already happy to receive gifts like iPhone pouches and coffee mugs.)

I’m not very brand-conscious and wouldn’t care less, but for a new and struggling entrepreneur, this is really quite ironical?! I feel blessed to bless, I guess.

I’m very thankful to my Mom and Dad who always give me a Christmas with a meaning – we went to St Andrews Community Hospital this year on Christmas Eve with their church group, spreading some joy to the sick, young, and elderly.

I hope the patients liked our red-themed team love, as I try to croon out some rusty Christmas carols!

What a heartbreaking but amazing day, don’t think I will forget this Christmas Eve for a while. Sometimes, Singapore gets so comfortable that it’s easy to forget how many under privileged and less fortunate people there are around us. Everyone could do with a bit of love and a whole lot of Jesus. Grateful to my parents who continually remind me of compassion, especially this Christmas. Where do we start? With the elderly and sick who were so thrilled to see us, that they couldn’t stop clapping? The young girl in pink who followed us in her wheelchair all around the wards, squealing with excitement everytime we sing? The 5 year old who spasmed or couldn’t look at me straight, and yet she’s so beautiful?

Loving people is tiring, but I’m glad we did it. Thanks to Mom and her amazing church peeps.

ZoukOut 2013: Last year’s pics + 4 reasons to attend and stay till the sunrise this year

Why go to one of Asia’s top dance festivals and leave by 2am? Don’t be a cinderella this year – leave your shoes on the sand while we dance the starry night away with top tunes until the sunrise. ZoukOut 2013 is back for the 13th year, and will no less spectacular – expect 2 days of pure party power from Friday 13 December to Saturday 14 December.

zoukoutlineup2013

ZoukOut may have been running for a very long time, but it’s probably not going to die down anytime soon. True party hearts have trusted and twirled to Zouk’s careful music choices for more than a decade of dancing, and only the best beats are guaranteed as our feet sink into the sandy Siloso shores. Hello again to Singapore’s best reason for uniting clubbers from all over the world.

Who wants to stay with me till the sunrise? I’ve always paced myself and made it to the end, but in case you need more motivation, these are 4 of my inspirations to stay till the closing this coming ZoukOut 2013.

#1: You can use your EZ Link Card to buy drinks throughout the night.

This year, ZoukOut is introducing much-needed cashless payment at the bar. All we have to do is “tap and go” to pay for drinks. This beats having to queue for drink coupons, and we can use the same card to take the train home. Ain’t no party like an MRT after-party!

You can store up to $500 on your EZ-Link card, but there are top-up kiosks at the venue too.

#2: Harder, better, longer, stronger

Last year, the first night of the festival kicked off at 9pm and ended by 4am. ZoukOut 2013 will start an hour earlier at 8pm and end at 5am. The second day will remain a 12-hour dusk-to-dawn dance extravaganza, from 8pm to 8am. Can you handle it? More to love!

#3: More time to appreciate the awesome international and local line-up.

Afrojack on Friday seems to be a crowd favourite, and you really mustn’t miss Benga, Nervo, Ferry Corsten and Danny Avila.

I had the huge privilege of seeing and listening to Solomun live, during his Sunday residency at Pacha Ibiza, start of summer this year. Solomun has been absolutely raging through Europe the last 2 years, successfully packing out his stints in the house music scene. ZoukOut is deservedly better this year knowing that I can disco with him.

One of my Solomun favourites:

Looking forward to the star-studded interntaional line-up and digging into the localized tent to hear out A/K/A, Aldrin, Maurice Simon, Gerald Ang, Jeremy Boon, Ghetto, and Formative.

#4: Heineken creates party history this year by re-creating a dramatized sunrise.

Besides being ZoukOut’s official beer partner again this year, Heineken rewards their fans by creating an enhanced sunrise at ZoukOut this very special year! I can’t believe they are actually going to light up the sky – this I got to see. What a pretty idea, given the poor terrain and geography of Siloso Beach.

The Heineken Sunrise will be the special highlight of the event, together with a dance-reactive floor that is linked to the powering of the ‘sun’ and ‘sunrise’, which everyone can participate in. What a treat this year to marvel in! I can’t wait to witness the epic close of the last set, glorified against a spectacular sunrise.

heinekensunrise

How are we going to last till wee hours of the morning, you may ask? Why, water of course. Lots. I’ve always been a fan of brands that advocate responsible drinking. There’s nothing more un-attractive than guys and girls stumbling around and falling over each other. ZoukOut is all about the world-class music acts and awesome party people for me. I’m proud of my last-till-morning party stamina, for the sunrise belongs to moderate drinkers. Walk past the Heineken tent at ZoukOut for your bottle of water.

My after-thoughts on 3 Peas in a Pod Movie Premiere – <>
A MICHELLE CHONG FILM

Let me be brutally honest. I didn’t expect this movie to be so thoughtful. The simple movie poster and YouTube trailers offered me the impression that this could be one of those sickeningly-sweet films with a safe and predictable ending. Is this along the lines of the kind of soap opera-esque drama, that you might mindlessly watch while texting on the phone and listening to music, only occasionally turning your attention to the screen for the eye candy? Not at all! I don’t think anyone in the theatre saw this coming.

The show opens with the youths strolling around on my old stomping grounds, University of Melbourne. You very quickly learn the identities of each character and laugh a little at them as they play it out on screen (we all secretly see a bit of ourselves in them). They decide to go on a road trip after graduation, which of course, as any Melbourne University student has done, involves the picturesque Grampians and Great Ocean Road. I really spent so much of my life in these places, and anyone who has too spent time in Australia will find in these scenes a piece of their heart as I did. Sweeping panoramas of the gorgeous Australian landscape is captured and justified by beautiful camera work, and the audience sits comfortably in their movie seat, riding along with the characters on this special trip. Michelle Chong’s script is beyond boy-meets-girl – it is brave and witty with so many parts of the story, making the rest of the journey a not-so-standard holiday.

3 peas1

The triple threat cast brimming with teenage good looks definitely executed Michelle Chong’s script to its finest detail, and they each achieved a harmonious mix of superstar material while still staying relatable. I have so much respect for the three young actors as they each delivered genuine performances, despite not being professional actors. Calvin Chen and Alexander Lee Eusebio are popsters from their respective countries, Taiwan and Korea, while 22-year old sales assistant turned lead female actress Jae Liew had no acting experience before! She switched immaculately between Mandarin and American-accented English and was heartwarming to watch. As the plot grows thick, I relish the sharpness of the characters as the audience gets to know them. I won’t ruin the road trip, so watch it and you’ll see what I mean – Expect self-discovery, cheekiness, freedom, hurt, and humor.

I truly recommend this movie for anyone who’s young, or doesn’t mind a throwback to their youth. I definitely found a ton of deja vus flooding back into my memory bank, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same too.

If by the end of the movie you’re not mentally planning your next trip to Australia, you’ll at least be reminiscing about your antics in school!

Get Some Exclusive Invites for Johnnie Walker’s Circuit Lounge, SGP 2013

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a motorhead, or if you even know who the F1 drivers for this year is. (You must have have at least heard of McLaren’s Jenson Button though?!) Johnnie Walker’s famed F1 parties are far from losing their heat on Singapore’s track, and it’s almost that time of the year in Singapore where anyone and everyone is clamouring after one of their exclusive invites.

I’ve been attending/enjoying Johnnie Walker’s parties in Singapore and KL for 5 years straight, and I have to admit, these things change you! I’m becoming more and more of a whisky fan, or perhaps it’s because my brother is one. He recently bought Johnnie Walker’s Explorers Club edition (only available onboard a plane), and it was delicious to the finish.

explorersclub

Even my girlfriends Liv, Juliana and Linda, are dedicated whisky-drinkers. We never waver when ordering a glass of Johnnie Walker, every single time we are out around the bars in town.

jwcover

Johnnie Walker’s Circuit Lounge is back to impress this year for one exclusive night only, so expect nothing less than the best of gold and glamour. If you promise not to drink and drive, celebrate F1 with a nice shiny bottle of Gold Reserve, dance the night away with good looking good friends and a world class music line up – this year includes headline act Mel DeBarge (US), supported by Posso (US) and DJ Atran (SG). New York based DJ Mel DeBarge is a permanent fixture at exclusive film, music, fashion, philanthropic and private events and and she will keep you moving as the drinks flow.

I look forward to the encore return of Flavour Lab, a Diageo reserve World-Class bar where special Johnnie Walker cocktails are crafted for all their pretigious guests. Whisky fans will get to try new and evocative serves of Johnnie Walker, and I can’t wait to bug global winner of acclaimed Diageo Reserve WORLD CLASS Bartender of the Year 2012 competition Tim Philips, Runner Up for 2012 Kae Yin, and Singapore’s Bartender of the Year 2013 Zachary De Git to make me a drink. It’s going to be as good as gold.

Of course, it’s not a Formula 1 Johnnie Walker party unless you’re in the centre of the action, so this year’s new location Marina Bay Sands will ensure good vibes and perhaps even, slight vibrations!

Beauty inspiration: K-Pop girls and Marie France Bodyline’s Angela Tong

ibizatreasurequote

I realized recently that being single isn’t just about waiting – it’s what I do while I wait. And so, instead of using my God-given precious time to whine, I’ve decided to work hard and play as hard as I can. Spending time with family and loved ones, travelling and soul searching are currently top of my list, but most of my internet friends who have been following my INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK updates have hopefully noticed that I have also gone on a frantic health kick!

Working out for me isn’t only about losing weight, but should be about eating better and getting in shape. Beauty should be part of being fit, and being fit is beautiful.

kpopgirls

The last 3 weeks of working out is now starting to pay off, and although I was secretly hoping to look like Hyori Lee, I am admittedly happy that I am fast looking more and more like a better, shapelier, and stronger version of me. Estelle 2.0 is coming soon.

Along with blogger sweethearts Renzze and Regina, I was invited for a special introduction event for Marie France Bodyline’s new ambassador this week – and this couldn’t be more appropriate for my new shape-conscious lifestyle.

full length

IMG_2461_cb-L

Along with her newfound, post-natal figure, Hong Kong actress and first-time mother, Angela Tong explained how the customised body treatments at Marie France Bodyline helped her to understand what worked for HER body shape. Karen, and Regina sipped on sweet blue-themed slushy drinks but I couldn’t stop fidgeting in my seat and poke-shifting my slight tummy – I am doing what I can, but it would be nice to get professional advice on what works best for me too.

BMU_5885

Angela Tong stands on stage in the Luxe Art museum, dolled up in a short bright pink dress, as she excitedly shares with us her weight-shape journey. I have lately started considering vegetarianism, and was fascinated with her stories as they revealed her attempt at the Atkins diet, the “apple” diet (where you eat nothing but apples all day every day!), and a few others. Not so surprisingly, nothing worked so well for her. I don’t think I could function or smile if I ate only apples as well.

After realizing that there was no need to torture herself, she enrolled in one of the programmes that Marie France Bodyline has. Post-baby, actress Angela Tong lost 11kg and 42.25 inches within 3 months, of which, 12 inches was off her waist! I guess the impossible can be possible. The best thing about Angela was not only how well-spoken she was, but how genuine she was about sharing her personal experience. It felt real, tracing the footsteps of a busy actress-mother as she juggled a busy schedule between filming and having a newborn baby. If she can do it, I’m sure all of us can too.

BMU_5816

Of course, I couldn’t resist my inquisitiveness and asked the first question during the Q&A session. She chirpily replied to my question, explaining that in addition to her customised Marie France Bodyline treatments, she ate what she liked according to their nutritionist’s advice, and practiced brisk walking and yoga 3 times a week.

IMG_2527_straight copy_cb-L

Host for the day, beautiful Anita Kapoor, ooh-ed and aah-ed almost as much as we did. The room seeped with the scent of girl power, as Anita and Angela continued to make great conversation and competed in a diaper-changing race against time. Anita and Angela’s bubbly exchange of beauty and weight loss advice was also sweetened with the launch of revolutionary slimming treatment, PRO-FREEZE.

group shot 2

A Non-invasive freeze technology that targets hard-to-lose areas, this fat-reducing treatment that used to only be available at doctor’s offices. With PRO-FREEZE, when fat cells are exposed to an extreme cold temperature, they will be ‘frozen’. These ‘frozen’ fat cells will be degenerated and eventually ‘die’. These degenerated fat cells will be eliminated from the body via the body’s own metabolism system, and a Marie France Bodyline representative explained to me that this is done in the treatments through lymphatic drainage.

I bet you’re not surprised that the first thing I blurted out to one of the staff is, “how cold is cold?”! She patiently explained that she tried the treatment and because the coldness is targeted on a small area, it feels cool at first but then this is quickly forgotten. She even fell asleep – what bliss! PRO-FREEZE can apparently permanently remove up to 25% of the unwanted fat in a single treatment session, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. I’m thinking of all those late-night prata-weight.

The whole thing only takes 45-60 minutes per session, and although we did not try out this treatment, I’m always fascinated how technology can help make beauty so much easier to achieve! Maybe in addition to my eating healthy and sporty habits, it wouldn’t hurt to have this freeze-cheat technique. Check out Marie France Bodyline’s website for current updates and Pro-Freeze trial/promotions.

“You need to fully love yourself before loving others,” Angela remarked, and I don’t think anyone disagreed.

BMU_5907

Even if I’m nowhere close to looking like a K-Pop girl, I’m a step closer to looking like a better me.

Thanks Angela and Marie France Bodyline for teaching me a little bit more about my body, beauty technology and for continuing to empower women!

This is one awesome bachelor party – I can only hope that my future husband has a similar amazing time.

In my opinion, the best parties with an X-factor should have the following formula:
– Anything that can stir strong feelings of surprise
– Adrenalin
– Drinking
– Muscles
– Silliness
– Some sun and being on the water is always nice
– Your friends are most important

With guy friends like that, who needs strippers?

If you need to get your juices going (no, not THAT kind of juices..!), you can check out some party ideas that I’ve done over the years on my previous birthdays. Playboy Mansion Bankers and Bunnies, Japanese gameshow themed BBQ, boat parties – I just love to create experiences that me and my friends will remember for a lifetime.

My next birthday is around the corner… I’m a July baby! 😉 What should I do this year fellas?
