Singapore Night Festival 2013

Singapore Night Festival 2013 happens on the last two weekends of August, with performances ranging from aerial, music, dance and installation artworks, located in Bras Brasah on 23, 24, 30 and 31 August 2013.


I was there with girlfriend last night, who was free to accompany me view the different performances and installations starting from Plaza Singapura, ending at Raffles City. There were many people at the Night Festival, very happening. We did not manage to go to ALL of the performances/exhibits due to the timings/dates of the show. Here are some of our key visits.

Absolut Canvas at the Singapore National Museum. I love the Absolut Vodka's Absolut Canvas exhibition the most. I'm a Absolut Vodka collector. And most of the bottles showcased are rare and special.






Mega stunt by 'Magic Babe' Ning and J C Sum at the Singapore National Museum - We were unable to see the actual performance as a huge crowd was already gathered there and we were only able to catch the perform…

The 2nd last night of the Singapore Night Festival 2013. I was there, somewhere. Love the cute owl hand fan.

Banks' credit cards and their "marketing"

As an avid follower of kiasu-ism, I did what my "belief" told me to do: 宁可杀错也不可放过. And yet again, I was disappointed. I 杀错-ed. Sighs.

OCBC Robinsons credit card was having a roadshow in John Little the day I was shopping with girlfriends. The standee banner was marketing the credit card saying that by signing up the Robinsons credit card, upon approval, the applicant is able to receive $80 worth of vouchers that can be used in either Robinsons, John Little and Marks & Spencers. (Too bad I did not take a snapshot of the little booth)


So, being the kiasu me, I signed up for it. Girlfriend asked the promoter if there is any terms and conditions like spending a minimum before using the vouchers. Promoter said No. And guess what? Girlfriend and I both had our applications approved, and both of us were greatly surprised. There are three vouchers, in denomination of $50, $20 and $12. To spend the :
$50 voucher, which is only valid for Robinsons stores and is "Valid only wit…

Today, we went for my favourite sport. Swimming! Swam for 16 laps, and then enjoyed a round of the waves before heading home.

August Black Box

My first Black Box arrived at my doorstep today~ Yippee~ The courier guy was a little scary though. Knocked (very loudly) and tried opening my main door (of course it was locked). Scared me, so I open a small gap and he just passed me the box and went off. I did not even see his face hahaha



"Curiosity Satisfied" - Very curious indeed.


The contents when I opened up the box. Very neatly packed with a note from the Black Box Team and also a list of items in this month's box. The next survey is on 2 September (to check email) and to submit before 23 September. Winners will be notified by 30 September.

This month's Black Box is a consolidation of products that can help our skin look younger and and more radiant. Excited to try out these products.


And tadah~ Here's what we have for August's Black Box. This month's box contains products from Purer Skin, Dettol, Zappy, DarlieGlucosCare and a stack of vouchers from various brand partners.




Purer Skin Miracle Serum

A photo a day : Cheese sausage

Rained the entire afternoon and i was so so hungry. Lunch was only porridge, and after digging the house for food, I found frozen cheese sausages that had been waiting for me for a very long while. Yummy.

A photo a day : Ikea dinner

Ikea shopping with misslittlepatches and had dinner there too. I ate too much >.<

A photo a day : Cakes!

Hubby bought me cakes to eat. So happy he remembered. Was craving for cakes yesterday after seeing a picture of a very delicious looking cake online. But somehow didn't get to eat any cake.

A photo a day : Little pretty ladies

We were at hubby's cousin's baby girl's first year birthday celebration. There were many pretty girls around.

A photo a day : Evening by the park

It was great to sit by the sea, enjoying the seabreeze while watching the clouds whizz by, owners & dogs take walks and the activities of the nearby boats. Relaxing.

A photo a day : Free vouchers

Did a survey back in.... April? May? haha can't remember when, but it was LONG ago... It was a survey on Facebook, an activity ran by Ministry of Manpower. It was a "project" of a friend, and I don't remember that there will be any vouchers in appreciation of completing the survey. Yet another present surprise. Happy.

Most Popular Bloggers in Singapore 2013

Wow.. I'm honored. My blog ranked me as one of the "Most Popular Bloggers in Singapore 2013", ranking 30. A list of 36 local blogs was compiled by Bryan Choo on http://www.thesmartlocal.com/. It's my first time getting any "award" for my blog. The ranking in the article is based on the 17th August 2013's ranking. thedaintycandy.blogspot.sg is ranked 613,210 in the Alexa World Ranking. Cool!World Ranking!
This article will contain a list of the 36 most popular blogs in Singapore. Choosing the "Best Blog in Singapore" is a very subjective thing and perhaps 'best' is not the perfect word for it. To be completely transparent this ranking is actually determined solely by Alexa traffic numbers.

I am flattered by the compliments from the author. Truly. One point to note on why most of my posts are about food; the hubby likes to eat, and he tries to bring me to different places to eat so that I can blog about them. Maybe if I travel more often…

New song by Mayday五月天 : 入陣曲

Yay~ A new song by Mayday 五月天 【入陣曲】. It's an opening theme song for a TV drama 【蘭陵王】(View the trailer here: http://youtu.be/BeyFh1Es_Hc)


入陣曲
詞|五月天阿信
曲|五月天怪獸


當一座城牆 只為了阻擋 所有自由渴望
當一份信仰 再不能抵抗 遍地戰亂饑荒

蘭 陵 撩 亂 茫 天 地 離 人 忘 無 畏 孤 塚 葬 只 怕 蒼 生 殤

夜未央 天未亮 我在倖存的沙場
只盼望 此生再 奔向思念的臉龐
淚未乾 心未涼 是什麼依然在滾燙
入陣曲 伴我無悔的狂妄

當一份真相 隻手能隱藏 直到人們遺忘
寫一頁莽撞 我們的篇章 曾經如此輝煌

丹 青 千 秋 釀 一 醉 解 愁 腸 無 悔 少 年 枉 只 願 壯 志 狂
夜未央 天未亮 我在倖存的沙場
只盼望 此生再 奔向思念的臉龐
淚未乾 心未涼 是什麼依然在滾燙
入陣曲 伴我無悔的狂妄

忘不記 原不諒 憤恨無疆 肅不清 除不盡 魑魅魍魎
幼無糧 民無房 誰在分贓 千年後 你我都 仍被豢養

夜未央 天未亮 我在倖存的沙場
只盼望 此生再 奔向思念的臉龐
淚未乾 心未涼 是什麼依然在滾燙
入陣曲 四面楚歌誰獨唱

夜已央 天已亮 白晝隱沒了星光
像我們 都終將 葬身歷史的洪荒
當世人 都遺忘 我血液曾為誰滾燙
入陣曲 伴我無悔的狂妄

入陣去 只因 恨鐵不成鋼

Hai Di Lao Hot Pot 海底捞火锅

Here's a long overdued post =P

A hotpot gathering with the poly mates and partners at the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot 海底捞火锅, located on the second level of Blk C. Hubby attempted to call to make a reservation, but the lady on the phone said, just come as there are not alot of people around 5pm.

Upon reaching, we were overwhelmed by the "queue". Just outside the lift, the waitress gave out queue numbers base on the group size and people just gather around the entrance, seated at small tables snacking and playing board games. How did the lady over phone see that "there are not alot of people"?? We waited about 40minutes before we were ushered a table.

While waiting, you can help yourselves to the freeflow of popcorn, fruits (honeydew and watermelon) and drinks (sour plum and herbal tea).

Ladies can also get the fingernails painted while waiting. But it's so not tempting for me. So many people were waiting to have their nails done and there are only two "manicuri…
