10 Things I Love About The 'Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes' Exhibition

| |
Hi Huneybees,


It's been 10 years since Iron Man first popped on to our cinema screens, spawning one after another movie, creating one of the biggest movie franchise out there that now it's been named as a universe - Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Jumping out of the Marvel Comics, are the superheroes we know as the Avengers. Whilst the cast who plays the superheroes assemble to get their very own commemorative tattoo, we the Marvel fans here in Singapore, get to indulge ourselves in the World of Marvel at the 'Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes' exhibition.


10 years, 19 movies all compacted into a gallery space within the ArtScience Museum with 10 themed sections for you to step into the MCU. I was there for a media preview, took a plethora of photos and here's 10 things I love about the exhibition...



1) Movie Posters Gallery
Every single Marvel movie poster featured alongside with a little playback, summary and categorized according to order will bring you down memory lane. Which ones have you watched before? Did you miss any of them? If I could have a special room for mementos, this dream room will definitely be the one.



2) Light Projection Iron Man
Entering the Stark Tower, stands a white Iron Man statue. The Hall of Armors pop up on the screen behind and light projection via mapping is cast onto the statue to show you the evolution of armors Iron Man has worked on. Going from Mark I to Mark XLVI, you will get to see how the pieces come together and what upgrades have been made. 



3) Thor's Hammer
Stepping out of the Bifrost, brings you to the Sakaar's gladiator scene where the iconic battle between Thor and Hulk from 'Thor: Ragnorok' happened. That may be a magnificent scene to marvel at but what's hiding at a corner is the Mjolnir. I tried, but guess I wasn't the chosen one, it's your turn now...


4) I Am Groot
One of my favourite characters from the MCU, makes an appearance too. I grooved to the soundtracks from the Guardians Of The Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and dance along with Baby Groot!



5) Opening Portals with Doctor Strange
This might just be as close as I can get to Benedict Cumberbatch! That charming Doctor Strange vibe makes him so mysterious~ Not only did I get to take endless pictures with "him", I also got a chance to practice Alchemy, bending reality and opening portals to some of Singapore's iconic tourist spots!


6) Wakanda Forever
Yes, you can travel to the secretive Wakanda without the need for your passport. At this gallery, you can enter the Panther Cave to meet Black Panther himself and explore their tech. I do love the whole setup but if there was a section for Shuri's tech lab, it will be perfect!




7) Microscopic World
I was tracing the little ants on the floor and popped into this space, wondering what is there to see. Then I noticed 2 magnifying glasses which behind stood Ant-Man and The Wasp. So, this is how small they are?! I could pinch them with my fingers! Well, prepare your microlens for this gallery (don't be like me) coz they are very detailed and you wouldn't want to miss it.



8) Thanos
At this last section of the exhibition, stands Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet, where you can activate it with each of the Infinity Stones via an interactive display. Though he is being named as the villain of the MCU, I can't help feeling in awe for this character. He had a mission and spent all his efforts to fulfill that; all the determination and "discipline" in improving and empowering himself, is definitely the kind of spirit I look up to and hope to have.


9) Group Photo
Remember that famous Oscar Selfie by Ellen DeGeneres? Top that at the photo wall upon exit with an epic MCU wefie. The whole cast of the Marvel movie series, joined with the director and even Stan Lee have all lined up for that shot with you!


10) Exclusive Merchandise
Don't rush out of the exhibition just yet. The souvenir store is there waiting and right at the middle, you can spot these black t-shirts with a number 10 printed on the back. These are sold exclusively to commemorate the 10th anniversary MCU and you can choose different designs that feature a silhouette of your favourite superheroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, etc...


So there you have it, these are the 10 little things I love about the 'Marvel Studios: Ten Years of Heroes' Exhibition. There are so much more for you to explore and photo spots for all your social media sharing. Be sure to head on over to the ArtScience Museum to check it out.

M.A.C Launches Candylicious Lip Glosses - Oh, Sweetie

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Oh, Sweetie! An affectionate name for M.A.C's latest collection of Lip Glosses, that are not only named after different desserts, they smell just like those sweet treats too! The 15 piece collection is headed up by model and influencer Caroline Daur and they are not to be missed, especially for those who have a sweet tooth.


With names like Funfetti Cake, Sugar Cookies, Banana Muffins, Coconut Macaron, Death by Chocolate and Purple Panna Cotta, this collection is super fun and colourful to have and great for this Summer. 



The rainbow confetti packaging are so lovely to look at, brightening my dresser and even brightens my day! For those who are always in nude or natural eye makeup, pairing these colours with your OOTD will definitely make your photos pop!


The lip glosses have a sheen of iridescence in them and the texture is creamy like mousse and opaque. They are not like the usual M.A.C Lipglasses that are just a sheer top coat and are not drying like those velvet lipsticks. Some of the colours do require a few swipes to get its full intensity, but what's fun is that you can mix them up, especially with the unconventional colours, to create new shades and even new flavours!



The Oh, Sweetie Lip Glosses are surprising long-wearing, yet not drying to the lips. They do leave some marks when drinking or kissing but there's still a stain of the colours left. It does take abit of effort to remove the lip glosses, you might need a dedicated lip makeup remover to do the job. Below is a first impression and review of the collection, alongside with the swatches of all 15 shades.








The M.A.C Oh, Sweetie collection is already out in all M.A.C counters islandwide, retailing at SGD33 each. Have fun shopping and do share your photos ~

What To Expect At Asia GAME Festival 2018?

| |
Hi Huneybees,


The inaugural Asia GAME Festival (AGF) debuts at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, in Hall 401 to 403, on 9th and 10th June 2018, with an exhilarating line-up of Games and Esports, together with Anime and Anisong!


The biggest attraction to AGF is probably the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) Championship for PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG), partnered by MSI, where public could complete for the balance 14 tournament team slots to join the 6 team slots already reserved for the 6 countries representatives to compete for the honour of being crowned the first CPL Regional Champion for PUBG.





Another interesting activities happening at AGF is an impressive line-up of video games including triple-A titles, indie games, and tabletop games for visitors to participate.


I find the Community Competitions organized by Campus Game Fest with support by Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and National Youth Council (NYC) very inclusive and offers public an alternate platform to Esports career.


Visitors can pick games such as Super Smash Bros, FIFA 18 and Hearthstone and put their gaming skills to the test against each other to win attractive prizes at AGF!




No game-theme festival can do without Cosplay since increasing more cosplayers are dressing the characters of popular Esports, such as League of Legends Star guardian Ahri and Overwatch D.Va. There will also be a Day Stage where up close and personal interaction such as artiste interview, Meet-and-Greet (with Aza Miyoko!), Anisong performance will be taking place during the two-day festival.


All-in-all, it's great to see more game-themed festivals like AGF taking place in Singapore and supporting local Esports and gaming scene. I really hope AGF can grow fast enough to be a truly Asia Game Festival in the near future!

Thanks Honeymill For Solving My Unhealthy Craving For Bubble Tea!

| |
Hi Huneybees,


You have worked so hard, why not take a break and enjoy a nice, sweet cup of honey? 

We all love our bubble teas but, as you all know, bubble teas are actually full of sugar that's unhealthy to our body. The better alternative without sacrifice our craving for bubble teas is to try the honey drinks from Honeymill that are naturally sweet and better for our health. 

Known as the "Food of Gods" or  "Liquid Gold" for thousands of years, honey is actually a treasure chest of hidden nutritional and medicinal value. With benefits such as anti-inflammatory effects, a natural antibiotic and also a good sleeping aid, it is my perfect subsittute for sugar!


Located at basement 2 of Marina One The Heart, Honeymill is a local startup that operates the first-of-its-kind honey concept store that serves honey drinks and honey treats by a very interesting "staff"! 


This interesting "staff" actually recalls any recipe from the honey drinks menu in an instant and has this amazing ability to prepare your drink in under 2 minutes! With such "staff" around, Honeymill is ever ready to serve the busy office crowds anytime with its fast and consistent service.


This interesting but amazing "Staff" is called Honeybot and "He" is the brainchild of Sophia Lim, the Founder of Honeymill. 

Coming from the honey distributing business, Sophia is always looking for better ways to promote honey to the community but has always been constrained by manpower issues as well as the challenge in the inconsistencies of making good quality honey drinks until she conceptualized Honeybot one day and took her team spent nine (9) months in developing and programming this robot arm.


VS


Just to demonstrate how efficient Honeybot is, I took up the "Man vs Machine Challenge" to compete with Honeybot in creating a honey drink and as expected, by the time I could finish stirring and blending the honey with water, the Honeybot has already completed and sealed the drink for serving! Check out the video below and you can see how fast it operates!







Did you know that you can create a wide variety of immune boosting food with honey at home? Simply by just infusing herbs such as garlic into a container with honey and store it away from direct sunlight at home for a few days, you basically have combined the health benefits of both the potent garlic (regulate blood pressure, lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar level, just to name a few) and the sweet "liquid gold" in one single bottle!  By consuming it regularly, you can say goodbye to common problems like flu and cold!! Huneybees, do try it today.

You could either order the signature Honey drinks or create your own Honey Drinks and get it in less than 2 mins!
Making a Honey drink can be time-consuming as you need to dissolve liquid Honey in a cup of water not hotter than room temperate but Honeybot can create it in under 2 minutes, thanks to its powerful and precise robotic arm!






Apart from your choice of chilled honey drink, there are a wide variety of unadulterated honey products such as cookies, honey sticks, and cakes available for Huneybees!




There are many varieties of honey produced all over the world, depending on the types of nectar and where the bees collect them from, and the most famous one is the Manuka honey from New Zealand, thanks to its proven antibacterial properties that can rival some medication.

It is however very important to buy honey, regardless of its form - comb, raw, propolis, royal jelly, etc. - from a reputable source, preferably from a honey specialty store like Honeymill, as the method of harvesting and processing of honey can degrade or even "poison" the product. While honey is commonly sold in neighborhood market, it is important to note that many are actually adulterated (impure) for the commercial reason and hence may not be as good for our health. 

For a better tomorrow, let's switch our favorite bubble teas with the healthier honey drink from Honeymill today!
