Cherry Credits Unites Gamers For Typhoon Haiyan Relief

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Cherry Credits is rallying gamers from around the world to provide support for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. With its new Facebook campaign “A Helping Hand”, users can now do their part to help the people in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines through the Dragon Nest SEA Facebook page.

A Facebook note, “A Helping Hand (A Cherry Credits Initiative)” has been published on Dragon Nest SEA’s page. For every ‘Like’ the note garners, Cherry Credits will be donating 1 peso to the cause - Project Balikdagat Basey or Back to Sea. Cherry Credits has pledged a minimum of 350,000 pesos, up to a maximum of one million pesos.

“The gaming community is united but due to a fragmented geography, not everyone can fully understand the suffering of those affected. We hope that this effort can further help to raise awareness of the effects of Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines and garner greater support amongst their own friends, with a simple click of the mouse.” --- Addison Kang, CEO of Cherry Credits. 

More information about the Helping Hands campaign can be found on the Dragon Nest SEA Facebook page (

About Project Balikdagat Basey 
(Back to Sea) Project Balikdagat Basey or ‘Back to Sea’ is a recovery project spearheaded by Filipino celebrity Alodia Gosiengfiao’s charity group, Be A Cause. Project Balikdagat Basey is an effort for the rebuilding of boats for fishermen in Basey, Samar (Philippines) who lost their means of livelihood after the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan. Fishing is the main industry in Basey, and these boats would give these fishermen a chance to recover their way of life. The cost of one banca (traditional fishing boat) is around 6000 pesos, a small price to help one Filipino family find a means of survival.

Organised by Orbis Festival Productions, in partnership with Marina Bay Sands (the Official Venue Partner) and the Java International Jazz Festival (‘Java Jazz’), Sing Jazz is set to invigorate the local jazz and music scene, boosting the following for this most creative and inspiring of live music forms, while at the same time helping to nurture and encourage the development of home-grown jazz talent.

The Festival kicks off with Jamie Cullum headlining an opening gala performance on 27 February at the Grand Theatre. This will be followed by three days of back-to-back performances by some of the biggest names in jazz and R&B, at the main stage of the outdoor Event Plaza. Meanwhile, satellite stages situated throughout the destination will showcase the wealth of regional and local talent, and provide the opportunity for jamming late into the night, so capturing the true essence of live jazz.

The Festival also takes seriously its social and developmental mission of nurturing emerging jazz talent in Singapore and the region. Sing Jazz will host clinics led by Festival artists, and facilitate an exchange of local talent with its counterpart festival, Java Jazz. It will also pledge $1 from each commercial ticket sale towards the Foundation of Arts & Social Enterprise’s on-going training and grooming of our cadre of up-and-coming jazz musicians. Moreover, Orbis Festival Productions is committed to founding a residential ‘Jazz Academy’ that will see leading exponents of the art tutoring and mentoring aspiring young jazz artists.

Tickets for Sing Jazz will be on sale from Saturday, 30 November 2013. Audiences will be treated to a concert at Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre on 29 November by British acid jazz icons Incognito, who will also return to perform among the other award-winning artists on the stages of Sing Jazz 2014 in February.

Marina Bay has meant alot to me throughout the years. It first started out as a weekend hangout place for my family when there was still a Marina South. Arcades, bowling, kite flying and hearty hotplate BBQs were definitely a must!

And when the whole Marina Bay developed and flourished, the Marina Barrage, Gardens By The Bay, Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands then became my frequent hang out place. Probably coz the events are mostly held in these areas, I definitely left alot of my footsteps here.

[Tried & Tested] A Brand New Rupini's @ Holland Village

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Rupini's have recently gone through a face-lift for their branch in Holland Village. Located just opposite of Wala Wala Cafe Bar, the second floor space was big and inviting with a tinge of lavender colours. Stepping in with the fragrance of scented oils, one is immediately relaxed and ready to get pampered.

Rupini's have always been known for their eyebrow threading services, but at this Holland Village branch, they are branching out to all things beauty, including facials, body massages, hair cuts, etc. The name "Rupini" signifies "Beauty" in Tamil and they have successfully operated for 19 years and even opened 2 salons just  for men.

I was invited to try a couple of their services and it started off with a wash and blow service for my hair. It's been awhile since I styled my hair, so it was nice to have my always tangled tresses, a little pampering and showoff my rainbow hair for the day... :)

After which, I had eyebrow threading. I had tried so many different ways to trim my eyebrows and nothing was as smooth going as threading. Waxing and plucking is a long painful process, and sometimes, it might not be precise and shaving is worse, as pores will look so big. Threading is not only painless, it is also quick and precise to shape the brows...

Thank you Rupini's for the treat!

Welcome to 'Forbidden Beauty' - The Wintery World Of Majolica Majorca & Ma Cherie

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Japanese products never cease to amaze me with their packaging and promotional items. Majolica Marjoca for one always has their collections launched in Little Humming Books and for their 10th Anniversary, Chapter 39 promises a surprise element!

"Pure Play" video directed by Koji Yamamoto 

Well, welcome to 'Forbidden Beauty' the
wintery world of Majolica Majorca and Ma Cherie. 

With a red apple in hand, who's the fairest of them all? Well, the ones with the right tools to beautify. Like this video below, even the evil witch craves for it...

Video taken from Majolica Majorca Hong Kong.

The highlight from the Majolica Majorca winter collection - Chapter 39 'Pure Play', has got to be its 10th anniversary limited edition compact palette, 'The Little Humming Book IV'.

Similar from the previous Little Humming Books, it comes in a tiny book with musical notes for playing, but the surprise is that instead of the usual eyeshadows and lip colours, the palette is in fact a highlighter for the cheeks. You can still use it as an eyeshadow palette. 

At the event, there was a few activities and one involves a mini golf and well, being a golf addict's wife, I won! So, I received the limited edition book, as well as the 'Lash Expander Edge Meister 17' and a decorative bottled "globe".

So, wana see how I put the beauty products to play? Watch this video tutorial of mine...

In the video, I also talked about the 'Lash Expander Edge Meister 17'. It is the star product of the season with its powerful and beautiful glittery blue stardust-like lengthening effect. 

While, Ma Cherie, they introduced its limited edition 'Winter Floral Hair Fragrance'. Adding on to its distinct romantic floral and fruity fragrance, this product embodies the scent of the Ma Cherie winter flower with green apple, red apple, pear, lychee top notes; and davana and rose for middle notes. More than just a hair fragrance, the 'Winter Floral Hair Fragrance' prevents and eliminates odour, and hydrates hair cuticles! 

Ready to turn into Snow White? Well, the products are all now in stores!
