3rd Anniversary Celebration & Re-Opening of PANDORA at Raffles City

| |
Hi Huneybees,

PANDORA recently celebrated their success for the past 3 years, as well as the Re-Opening of the PANDORA store at Raffles City.

I always loved the concept behind PANDORA and whenever they release new charms/collections, I would secretly hint to my hubby. It's like the ladies version of LEGO. You can build a bracelet with the charms that best reflect your love, your memories and your future. You can buy the charms one by one and add on to your bracelet when you like it...

At the event, Flying Dutchman was the host and there was a ballerina performance too.

Let's take a look at the beautiful jewelery?

Justin Lee - Senior Costume Designer of Mediacorp and Mark Chua - Pricipal Costume Designer of Mediacorp, showcased their selection of charms for bracelets. And a little birdie told me, they were very fast and creative. They immediately chose the charms they want and made up a bracelet in just a few minutes.

I love this! So fairytale right?

That night, everyone also saw the sneak preview of PANDORA X'mas 2012 and V'day 2013 Collection.
Do stay tuned to their Facebook Page for more updates...

Are you ready to build your own charm bracelet? :)

[Tried & Tested] Celebrity Secret - Gamila Secret

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Raised by nature gathered by Gamila to nourish healthy skin
Revealing Gamila Secret - A brand of skin care from the village if Pegi'in, Galilee, Northern Isreal. Galilee is a place where time seems to have stopped for 200 years. The fertile soil feeds magnificient olive groves, orchards and fields full of herbs.

 “I have committed my life to blending the healing powers of herbs to create the purest possible skin care products”.
Gamila was born and raised in the village and when her father was very young, his grandmother taught him the importance of nature in their lives. He passed this knowledge onto Gamila. Based on that knowledge, Gamila started searching for the ideal combination of wild herbs, vegetable oils and olive oil from the trees growing in the hills around her village.

This mixture, the ‘secret’ part of Gamila Secret, not only cleansed skin but also softened and healed it. She created the perfect combination for skin care because she has one very clear mission in life: to give everyone the opportunity to have healthy, beautiful skin for as long as they live.

Let me introduce their Cleansing Bar. Made from 100% natural ingredients and 15 herbs with more than 80% pure virgin olive oil that can be used as a daily cleansing bar for the face & body. They offer more than 10 scent and the one that I'm reviewing is Original.  

Upon opening the box, my whole bedroom was filled with the fragrance of olive and essence oil. Just by smelling it, I felt so relaxed and was super eager to start using the cleansing bar. Something interesting about Gamila Secret is that the bars may be of the same fragrance, but they may have a different colour as certain herbs have a different colour each season...

Gamila Secret Cleansing Bars are available in ten varieties, nine of which have essential oils for added fragrance and properties that simulate the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones like me Gamila Secret not only cleanses and revitalizes the skin; it also has healing qualities for people whose skin has lost its natural balance. 

Olive Oil stimulates the self-protective function and through that the breathing, of the skin. The skins own moisture stays intact through the generation of natural skin oils and the restoration of the natural skin barrier. The skin can then breathe and transpire without loss of moisture. It doesn't leave the skin feeling dry and tight.

How to use the Cleansing Bar
  1. Moisten with warm water to activate the ingredients
  2. Apply the bar directly on face & body
  3. Massage the creamy texture into your skin
  4. Allow the emulsion time to permeate deeply into the skin
  5. Rinse off

My Review

Cleansing power : 4 /5
I like that the cleansing bar is not too foamy and after cleansing, my skin feels refreshed. It is very gentle and my skin feels smoother after using. I love it! It is said to heal the skin, I'm looking forward to see its magic, since I've only used it for a week...

Scent : 4/5
The Original version smells like olive and essential oil, very refreshing and relaxing...

Price : 3/5
($46 - $63) per soap. The price is pretty steep. But the fact that it is carefully made and the process of controlled cooking, with ingredients being added at different moments to accomplish the best result, makes it a little more precious...

Overall : 3.5 /5
I like it, leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth, however, the pricing will make me think twice before getting it.

Gamila Secret not only offers cleansing bar. They also offers alot more product like - Face Oil, Hand Cream, Foot Balm and many more. It's been a celebrity secret!

For more information, you can go to their website - http://gamilasecret.sg and 'LIKE' them on Facebook.
Gamila Secret is available at Metro Paragon, Robinsons Marina Bay Sands, Robinsons Raffles City & Robinsons Centrepoint.

1st ever Red Bull Flugtag 2012 in Singapore!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

I wonder how it feels to be driving a Red Bull Mini around town?
"Welcome onboard Red Bull Air. Please take your seat, fasten your seat belt securely and we are ready for take off!"

Yipee! Finally Singapore got to see the amazing Flugtag action! (See here to understand more about Flugtag) Well, it's always something I see on the news and never caught the first ever Red Bull Flugtag 2012 Singapore LIVE. It's so amazing to see people build these huge machines and at the end of the day fly it off to see who goes the furthest! It's like the super grown up version of throwing paper planes...

Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1992, more than 100 Flugtag events have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event.

It was a mighty hot day, but the weather didn't keep us away. We were excited and strolled along the whole Siloso Beach to the end, along the way were the super duper cute Red Bull MINI Coopers. We just kept taking photos. Hehehehe...

The Red Bull Flugtag teams spent weeks toiling over their man-made aircrafts in an attempt to put Singapore on the world map for creativity and on 28th October, Siloso Beach Sentosa saw some of the island’s wackiest human-powered flying crafts take off a 6 meter ramp into the lagoon. 

Towards the end of the beach, we saw huge hangers housing the 38 Flugtags. There were a total of 38 teams (of 4 members per team), amidst cheers from a 35,000 strong crowd. Eager spectators filled Siloso Beach to its capacity as early as 11 am and were treated to views of the crafts on the pit lane preparing for the first take-off at 12 noon.

Nearly a quarter of the teams were inspired by local flair including Team Flurry Express and their MRT cabin, Team ERP with their flying ERP gantry. Local delights such as Chilli Crabs, Durians, Kueh Lapis and Char Siew Pows also took the skies, albeit briefly, before making a huge splash in the water below. 

When I saw The Chickmobile. I really wonder how is the "pilot" gona see?

The Stealth Budget Airline Team

Java Express Team

Coco Loco Team

The Adventures of Flouride Man & the Cavity Creeps Team

Serial Flyers Team
Mega Aero Zord Team
Go! Go! Power Rangers!!!
The team that really caught my attention would have to be the "Mega Aero Zord". Power Rangers was a kids program I had to watch everyday and it left a huge impression on me. However, I must say the plenty display of male crossing dressing as females, was super eye-catching and adds on to the fun event.

501st Legion Singapore Garrison Team
STAR WARS!!! My hubby would have loved to ride in the Imperial Star Destroyer.

Pengcraft 2000 Team
Flask ML Pop Team
Kings of Fruit Team

Maxus Flock of Flyers Team
Super Sevens Team
Team Anvil
The BBFL team that's inspired by Hansel & Gretel and movie - UP.
Now, this is one craft that has the loudest applause and the greatest cheers! Presenting to you, the ERP Team.

Here's a video done by Malcolm Sunny.

At 12 noon, the 1st Red Bull Flugtag Singapore 2012 began! The judging panel consisted of 7 notable public figures - Paul Foster, Georgina Chang, Aide Iskandar, Rosalyn Lee, Felix Huang, Bobby Tonelli and Dee Kosh. They judged each teams based on creativity, showmanship and of course flight distance.

Also, The Muttons - Justin Ang and Vernon A from 987FM were the hosts.

Are you ready for the action? I must say most of the aircrafts didn't fly too far, but it was fun when amongst the crowd, we were all guessing how far they can go...

The Chick Mobile was the first to go and every team had to do a little performance number, leaving an impression, before the team pushes their aircrafts over the edge of the platform.

The Stealth Budget Airline Team kicked in a twist before flying off. Not only did they have sey "air stewardesses", the plane flew backwards too!

More photos can be viewed here.

All the teams gave their best efforts and  it was Super Sevens, a team consisting of commercial pilots and an ex-air stewardess as the actual pilot, who walked away as champions.

1st Place: Team Super Sevens
2nd Place, Team Riff Raff Rubber Ruckus
3rd Place, Team Flurry Express
Prize for the Wackiest Team Performance: The Serial Flyers

The MINI Prize for the longest flight distance at Red Bull Flugtag Singapore was awarded to Team Amphibious Dragonfly Drone (Distance: 18.2m), and the winning pilot also walked away with an additional skydiving experience in Europe.

Yes! I was part of the Crazy 1st Red Bull Flugtag 2012 Singapore!
Malcolm did a coverage for SINGASPORTS and my photos were used for the post. Yipee!!
