Hi Huneybees,


Follow Marvel’s ragtag band of teenage superheroes battle angst, hormones, abuse and (quite literally) their parents, in HOOQ’s latest same day telecast offering - Marvel’s Runaways.

The Runaways cast (Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta).

Tag along with Alex, Gertrude, and their friends in this all-new television event exclusively on HOOQ. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise

HOOQ (the largest Video on Demand service in South-East Asia) is proud to announce this new exclusive Marvel offering: the 1st 3 episodes of Marvel’s Runaways will debut on Nov 21st with brand new episodes coming every week to HOOQ, same day as the US telecast!

Chief Content Officer of HOOQ, Jennifer Batty said, “We’re very excited, Runaways ticks all the boxes that we are looking for in a comic book Entertainment series!  Everyone thinks their parents are evil when they are a teenager BUT what happens when you find out they really are evil!?! With showrunners like Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, producers of The O.C. and Gossip Girl, also available on HOOQ, we can expect the series to break away from some of the conventions and tropes that muddle teenage dramas.  The 1st 3 episodes of Runaways drop on HOOQ within 12 hrs of the US on Nov 22nd, and a brand-new episode will follow each week, same day as the U.S. and fully localized for our viewers.”


The series, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, follows the story of six teenagers who unite against a common enemy: their parents, who reveal themselves to be super-villains in a sinister group called the Church of Gibborim, who, so far as anyone else knows are harnessing some serious evil to put toward their own nefarious ends.


Running away from their respective homes, the teenagers decide to work together to right the wrongs of their parents, and set on a journey to discover the secret of their origins in a fun and original spin on the superhero narrative. Helping them in this struggle are larger-than-life characters such as Gert, a superheroine with a telepathic connection to a genetically engineered dinosaur known as Old Lace.
Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf), Lyrica Okano (The Affair), Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac), Ariela Barer (Yo Gabba Gabba!), Gregg Sulkin (Sixty Six, Wizards of Waverly Place) and Allegra Acosta (100 Things To Do Before High School).

Runaways comes at the back of an exclusive landmark deal between HOOQ and The Walt Disney Company that gives HOOQ exclusive rights to three of Marvel’s series: Marvel’s InhumansMarvel’s Runaways and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. So be sure to sign up to HOOQ and hop onto this Marvel wagon!

Looking Back At The OUTSIDER Fashion Art Festival

| |
Hi Huneybees,


October I call it the fashion month. With so many fashion shows and updates for the new season, there was so much to see, so much to change. But one that was memorable had got to be the OUTSIDER Fashion Art Festival that ran from October 20 - 22.


The location was unorthodox, not some grand hallways or ballroom, but in a hypermart - BigBox, in the suburban neighbourhood area - Jurong. Titled OUTSIDER, this anti-elitist fashion art festival features works from a range of young emerging fashion brands from Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan and Thailand; 10 Singapore artists created visual art installations, plus 45 works created by fashion graduates from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). A total of 65 young Singaporean and Asian creatives being given a public platform to show off their talents!


OUTSIDER is organized by creative agency Untitled Collective, founded by Zachary Goh and together with Toby Hsu, they have over 17 years in the creative scenes in Singapore and China.


This first OUTSIDER event sees the team bringing fashion and art that’s not mainstream to the general public to create interesting conversations in the Heartlands of Singapore. It’s a passion project to spread the love for fashion and creativity across Asia and whether they profit from it is not on their top priority.


"Many fashion events are exclusive - if you can't secure an invitation or you are not in a certain clique of people, you wouldn't be able to attend. We wanted to do quite the opposite."



There was so many insta-worthy spots and the highlight has got to be the fashion show that features all 13 designers at the event. The brands included Singapore labels Faculty and Voltaire.Visions, plus Lanneret, Alias, Ms Yeeyee, 1=X and Mimblanche from China; Makin Jan Ma, Methodology and Absurd Laboratory from Hong Kong, Batice from Taiwan, Man Chien from Malaysia and Q Design and Play from Thailand. Iconic footwear brand Converse also celebrated its Chuck Taylor All Stars’ 100th year anniversary with an art installation space.



I'm definitely in love with this fresh new take on fashion and art. The fashion pieces will be breathing in new air for our wardrobes and hearing that Zachary and Toby are planning for this to be a yearly event,  I'm definitely looking forward to the new OUTSIDER event! 


For more information and details on the works of art and designers, go to http://outsider.sg/.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC Is Back And Better!

| |
Hi Huneybees,


I am so happy to see the return of THE SOUND OF MUSIC back in MasterCard Threatres at Marina Bay Sands Singapore!

Time has really flied by as it has been three (3) years since your Queen Bee last caught the musical, when it was played at the same venue during its five-week season run in July/August 2014 to over 70,000 people. You could revisit that post at this link here.


It is because of this popular demand that the new season of THE SOUND OF MUSIC has also been extended and will run until 3rd December 2017.


Both Queen Bee and myself agreed unanimously after attending the premier on 9th November 2017 that the new season of The Sound of Music is definitely worth a second viewing even for Huneybees who have had too caught the last performance in 2014.

In our opinion, the British accent delivery throughout the performance makes the show flows more fluid and sexier too when it comes to the love scenes between Captain Von Trapp and Maria Rainer and also with Baroness Schraeder.

Meet two leads of this new season - Carmen Pretorius who plays Maria Rainer and Nicholas Maude who plays Captain Von Trapp.

Produced straight from the home of West End musical theatre - the famous London Palladium - where this highly acclaimed show celebrated a record-breaking 954 performances and was seen by over two (2) million people, this show is as authentic as one can ever get outside UK!

The young actors and actresses from Singapore are part of the eighteen children who will be playing the coveted roles of six of the seven Von Trapp children
Whether you are catching it for the first time or return for a second viewing, THE SOUND OF MUSIC with its unforgettable songs, including Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, Sixteen Going On Seventeen and the glorious self-titled song itself, are going to touch the hearts of all ages!

THE SOUND OF MUSIC will be performing from 7th November - 3rd December 2017 at the MasterCard Theatre, Marina Bay Sands.

PERFORMANCE TIMES:
Tuesday to Friday: 7:30pm
Saturday:  2:00pm and 7:30pm
Sunday:  1:00pm and 6:00pm

TICKET PRICE: 
From $65*

URBAN REVIVO Collaborates With Artist Pauline Yau For A Different Shopping Experience

| |
Hi Huneybees,


There's a new fashion player in town all ready to change our fashion scene - URBAN REVIVO. They are set to take on global competitors such as Spanish clothing retailer Zara, British brand Topshop and Swedish label H&M.

Founded in 2006, URBAN REVIVO officially opened its first store outside of China in Raffles City and Plaza Singapura. Stepping into the store, you are immediately welcomed by the brightly lit, spacious shopping space, where each collection is nicely segregated and arranged for the best shopping experience. You can have your very own private shopping space without having to fight with another browsing customer.

As you walk into every section of the store, there's a showcase of what's new and recommended. Alongside, there's beautiful installations to make the pieces shine even more and its all part of a collaboration with Hong Kong based artist - Pauline Yau to bring her artwork to life in all 180 stores, globally, including Singapore's. 

The new collaboration is in line with the brand’s core concept of Play Fashion and marks the latest installment of the brand’s ongoing passion and support for the Arts. URBAN REVIVO x ART is an ongoing collaborative project with various artists. Previously, the brand worked with artists such as Janine Rewell and Juslin Maunula. 


Entitled as Motion in Flight, we can experience the pairing of Pauline's organic creations with the softness to URBAN REVIVO's Fall collection. The design concept was selected to create, inspire and evoke a sense of nature, ever changing landscapes and the beauty of Fall, much like the ever-changing fashion cycle each year (Fall-Winter and Spring-Summer). 


The artwork will features elements of movement, flashes of colour and pulsing vibrancy of life in nature. You can also find beautiful circular wire-framed structures willing the windows and pillars in stores, with elements of gold butterflies dancing, bringing a pop of vibrancy into the store.


URBAN REVIVO not only carries fashion pieces for the ladies, they have it for the guys and kids as well; with shoes and accessories, this could be your one-stop shop for all your wardrobe needs. Their design are nothing short from the European designs, very in line with what's hot in the fashion scene these days.




For those who are skeptical of a Chinese label, you can throw that behind you as they are very careful with choosing their fabrics, every hem is stitched nicely, you won't find running threads. It's definitely a label that can be on par with those big labels as mentioned above.



The price range is a little steep though, I would say it starts from S$30 and above for each clothing. I would have loved to purchase more, but sadly their range of sizes were not too "big girls" friendly. For those size 14 and above, you might have to try your luck. I really do hope that they cater more sizes, coz I'm pretty in love with their designs.


See! I even picked to wear this adorable suede jumper/dress to attend the Singapore Fashion Week 2017. It's a design you don't see everywhere and it's so vibrant, I definitely stood out from the crowd.

So, if you are interested to check out Urban Revivo, do pop by their stores at Plaza Singapura and Raffles City. More on their website - http://www.urbanrevivo.sg/urbrand.htm?type=home.
