Review: Get Your Sexy Back Blogger Party & Heineken Underwater Camera To Give Away!

Together with Asia Pacific Breweries (APB), OMY Blog Club organised a GET YOUR SEXY BACK Bloggers' Party last Friday!!! It was absolutely A.W.E.S.O.M.E.


Get Your Sexy Back (GYSB) is Singapore’s first youth-led programme to encourage responsible drinking among young adults, and to spread the message that while partying is perfectly cool, binge-drinking is not! Binge-drinking is when one drinks alcoholic beverages excessively. Statistics show that nearly 95% of all adults depend on alcohol before the age of 21. Resource from:

So, if you end up sleeping like this FREQUENTLY in the pub: 200720094466200720094465 *He looks extremely comfortable; which shouldn't be the case.

Or end your day like this in bed all the time--dead-drunk: 172139_10150102048814637_806744636_5999607_1752349_o (Photo taken by: Calvin Timothy)

Then there are some serious health issues which you ought to consider. Binge drinking causes short term issues like Alcohol poisoning and hangovers, to long term health issues like kidney damage, liver disease, brain damage etc.

A group of bloggers headed down to APB last Friday to find out what they have done to encourage us about Responsible Drinking.

Before I reveal the photos, I am so thankful to Janet from OMY for sharing her GYSB photographs with me. I lost ALL my GYSB photographs and I am super depressed! There were some really great shots I took with Ethan(my guest), Calvin Timothy, Yongwei, lots and lots of food...! *Emo one corner drawing circles* I'll be extra careful next time.

Where was I? Oh yes, Get Your Sexy Back Bloggers Party. GYSB - 01

Notice a black Heineken watch I am wearing on my wrist? I was given one for trying on special vision goggles and walk on a straight line across the floor. These special goggles will show you how your vision is like when you're low, moderate and really drunk. Look how far I was away from the line instead of walking ALONG it.

My 'Off' Day

Well-spent with Bubble because he went for his first beach outing! It is not everyday that I can relax at the beach- one of my favourite places on earth.

The sea seems so calm here at the Singapore Waters. It is almost impossible to imagine that this was what washed across Japan just a few weeks ago, destroying vehicles, architecture & had drowned thousands of living organisms overnight...

Back to my 'off day'; Bubble met plenty of new friends at the Pets Corner carnival which was held at East Coast Park last Sunday. There were so many pet owners we couldn't get ourselves a parking lot next to the Lagoon Hawker Centre. We had to park next to the Water cable-ski park and walk a distance.

Time to show you!


Bubble is shy due to lack of socializing. We saw many dogs along the way but he just stood at a corner with his tail down-a sign showing that he's afraid instead of sniffing around. He hesitated for a long time to walk on. Even his daddy tried to coax him to move but to no avail.


Not until FEMALE dogs walked pass! In a flash he was running after them.
*Tiko Pek*



Bubble's checking out a miniature poodle at the entrance of the Carnival. Bubble seriously needs grooming! His hair is in a mess!



Here we are at Pets Corner held by TNP at last.


It is my first and will most probably be my last. Apart from the pet challenges held at the carnival, I was looking forward to more dog & owner activities like a temporary set up dog playground, mini dog pool, dog cafe & picnic, a dog run etc. To my disappointment, there weren't any of these. On top of that, all pets had to be leashed. The booths were mostly selling pet food, pet toys, pet insurance as well as an SPCA booth. We completed walking a circle round the carnival in less than 15minutes. Let's hope to see a better Pets Corner next year.


Plus points!

There were sufficient poo and water stations they located around and the place was very clean. On top of that the cooler fans really helped to keep the tentage cool.



The first booth wqhich caught my attention was the AVA booth. There was this maze game where you learn more about how to take better care of your pets- Choose the right guidelines and walk the poor dog out of the maze. You will win a goodie bag at the end. I wanted the bag because of the cute paper bag.




Up close at some other booths: My Bubble takes Royal Canin for Poodle


I bought a *bling bling* pet collar for Bubble!



Look how overjoyed he was!


The SPCA booth: Bought some bookmarks and planners for my students to contribute to the SPCA fund.


I was in time for the Wag-The-Tail Contest. The dog which can wag its tails the most number of times and wag with style wins. The dog in the centre of the stage caught my attention. Not only was it wagging its tail, it was dancing! It's a pity I didn't stay until the announcement of the winner. I had to meet Desmond at the hawker centre for song practice.


More dogs! There must be a poodle trend in Singapore because we saw more poodles than expected.






There were hamsters too!


Meet QQ(left), the female toy poodle which belongs to my friend, Irene!


Bubble, where do you look so cheeky here?

The last plus point was that the carnival was NEXT to the beach! Bubble and I ran and threw ourselves into the sea!

Kenneth joined in the fun with his Gucci.




Bubble finding out from a wet maltese if the sea was safe enough to enter.



Eh Hello,just jump in and you'll find out. But can you wait and let me take off my crocs first?







Bubble looked really tired after that.

I think I looked more tired.

One happy dog and one extremely happy dog owner spending quality time together. We both love Sunshine! *Kpo dog checking out whether he looked great in the shot*


Before I end my post, show you something extremely interesting!
Bubble and I saw this dog which can do 恭喜恭喜(Gong-xi-gong-xi)! He is so good you'll really want to give him a red packet even if it's not Chinese New Year.

This is REAL.
Enjoy the clip!
