| |
Hi Huneybees,

We’ve got great news: If the vivid colours and cute characters on the packaging and interesting flavours of Japanese snacks are your thing, you will certainly be excited to know that a new range of 15 goodies will now be available in selected 7-Eleven outlets island-wide, from now till end of January 2018!

Launched on 29 November 2017, the successful “J-Treats Arrival” campaign, organised by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) and 7-Eleven Singapore, was held for the second time this year in Singapore.

Just like before during the first successful run that concluded earlier this year, Huneybees will be able to enjoy the immense convenience of picking up their favourite Japanese snacks from selected 7-Eleven stores! This time, we can all look forward to a variety of snacks that run the gamut from sweet to savoury: such as instant ramen that come in a special jumbo size, fruit gummies, chocolates, crackers and yoghurt sweets.

Other than the 15 new Japanese snacks, “J-Treats Arrival” campaign will see exciting games and sampling taking place at selected 7-Eleven stores every weekend of the campaign. Customers can participate in a straightforward game of voucher grabbing in a Cash Flow machine, and the vouchers may be used to redeem free J-Treats and 7-Eleven collectible plushies.

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!

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.

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

From $65*
* Excludes the booking fee of SGD$4 per ticket
