[Sponsored Post] Life Does Not Rewind

Hi Huneybees,

Drugs have always been known to be dangerous and harmful to us all and to raise awareness to the youths, NCADA and CNB has recently launched their first Anti-Drug Online Gaming Challenge on Facebook. Through gaming, not only does one get to have fun, he/she also get to learn how to combat drug abuse.

Bloggers present that day.
I was invited to the media release of the games to understand more to share with you guys. We were addressed by NCADA Chairman, Dr. N Varaprasad.

"Our youths are spending many hours online every day, especially on games and social media sites such as Facebook. We want to be where they are, and leverage on these platforms to drive home the anti-drug messages." -- Dr. N Varaprasad
The challenge comprises of 4 categories - secondary, tertiary, non-students 25 and under, and the social media sharing (where the best entry of the week shared on Twitter or blogs about the challenge wins). Participants stand a chance to win attractive prizes including Resorts World Sentosa gift vouches which can be used to purchase Universal Studios Singapore entry passes, iFly tickets and Sentosa adventure park super combo packages. The top scorer for each game will also walk away with an iPad2.

Presentation by Seow Khim Guan Alvin
The games can be found at Life Does Not Rewind Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lifedoesnotrewind) and has already launched 2 games since December 2011. Today, I wana share with you the 3rd game - Escape From Drugs Land.

Team E.L.A.
Escape From Drugs Land is created by Team E.L.A. from ITE College Central (First runner-up of the Flash Games Competition held last year) is an online board game combining elements of quizzes, mini-games, puzzles and action games to help players learn and understand the irreversible effects of drug abuse and the consequences they need to face if they take drugs,

The team believes in creating social games with simple game play that appeal to everyone. They love a game of snake & ladder and decided to bring the popular board game online.

Trying out the game.
The game is simple to understand and easy to play. It's a combination of monopoly and snake & ladder where one has to answer questions to either move forward when answered correctly or step back when you answer wrongly.

Whilst playing, I also got to learn lots of facts like: "Methamphetamine has a very strong effect on the central nervous system and is highly addictive." and " The penalty for possession or consumption of Cocaine in Singapore is up to 10 years of imprisonment or S$20,000 fine or BOTH".

These facts helps best when I fall into the Trivia spots. Clever execution on educating the public on drug abuse whilst having fun. It's very addictive and I kept playing trying to beat my own score. One way to finish fastest is to answer all the questions correctly ~

So why wait? Hurry over to the Life Does Not Rewind Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lifedoesnotrewind) to learn how to combat drug abuse and win yourself something!

Tiger Lunar Extravaganza 2012

| |

Hi Huneybees,

Before Chinese New Year arrived, I had my first Lou Hei with Tiger Beer. Tiger Beer ushered in the Dragon Year by taking its celebrations to a higher level by hosting the Tiger Lunar Extravaganza at the Singapore Flyer.

Also known as “Singapore’s Wheel of Fortune”, the Singapore Flyer is the world’s largest observation wheel. Attended by more than 300 invited guests, the Tiger Lunar Extravaganza embodied the concept of “beer”, “friends” and “fortune” as well as the spirit of 聚 (togetherness) through the evening’s proceedings.

The festivities kicked off with guests participating in a traditional and symbolic “Lou Hei” (or prosperity toss) while riding in the Singapore Flyer. At the apex, 165 metres above sea-level, they tossed “yu-sheng”, a mixture of raw fish and shredded vegetable and toasted to good fortune with Tiger Beer.

With my friends. Ain't Tiger Beer all about "Togetherness"?

Huat ar!
“The Tiger Lunar Extravaganza is a modern interpretation of the traditions of celebrating the Chinese New Year which calls for spending quality time with family and friends. It represents the essence of “togetherness” which is reflected in our ushering of the new lunar year at new heights and with unique, yet meaningful activities organised for our guests and Tiger Beer fans. We at Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore would like to wish everyone celebrating the festive season a wonderful lunar new year filled with good health, wealth and fortune“, said Michael Chin, General Manager, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

Following the “Lou Hei” in the Singapore Flyer, guests in attendance took the chance to improve their “feng shui” with meaningful rituals to enhance their relationships with friends and family in the year of the Water Dragon, tying back to the theme of “togetherness”. The rituals were conceptualised by Tiger Beer in collaboration with geomancer Grand Master Phang of New Trend Lifestyle. 

One such ritual involved the casting of Mandarin oranges into a “Tiger Beer Five Fortune Pagoda” made up of Tiger Beer cans stacked to signify 五福临门 (Wu Fu Lin Men) or “Five Fortunes at the Door”. The five fortunes comprise longevity, wealth, health, kindness and benevolence. The “Tiger Beer Five Fortune Pagoda” can be replicated at home by Singaporeans with a 24-can pack of Tiger Beer to wish for the five types of fortune and good luck.

Best in everything in the Dragon Year!
Another ritual introduced at the event was the specially-created “Tiger Beer Dragon Wall” which involved guests slotting cans of Tiger Beer into a constructed wall to form the shape of a Water Dragon. It symbolised “the attraction of wealth from all directions by the Dragon on the Great Wall”.


Afterwhich, we were then treated to a sumptuous six-course dinner and festive entertainment at Seafood Paradise restaurant, overlooking the stunning backdrop of Marina Bay.

Windows as TV screen? Amazing idea!
How can we forget about the beer?

Cheers to Tiger Beer for a wonderful night!
