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.

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.
Alfred Tay from APB introduce to us about The GYSB Cheers Challenge. Thank you for being such a wonderful host, Alfred!
The GYSB Cheers Challenge is an online Facebook game where anyone aged 18 and above can logon and play. There are a total of 5 levels altogether. Try and toast to as many CORRECT friends as possible to gain points. You lose mugs if you toast to the wrong people(e.g. someone who is driving). The game is over once you lose all your mugs.
High scorers stand to win weekly Sony Cyber Shot Cameras and monthly Apple iPads! Try to win your way up to a place in the GRAND FINALE and win your DREAM HOLIDAY!
GYSB Fanpage Guide Manual
Click on 'Cheers Challenge' on the left of the window.
Facebook will direct you to this page:
Ops, I did mention that you have to be above the age of 18 in order to gain access and play, alright?
I'm not really a gamer; managed to complete only Level 1 even though it's really a simple game. The toasting gets harder as you level up. If you'll like to take a look at the other 4 levels, Ethan’s blog has print screens of them all! *Applause*

As for me, I shall just stick to feasting, free-flow drinking, sing KTV, and disturbing Yong Wei while the rest try to battle it out. Of course, I can be part of the Cheerleading team!
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.
A group shot with the bloggers and our goodie bags!
So friends, while you are having fun outside, remind yourself to drink responsibly; not only for yourself, but for friends & family who care and love you too!
