What will you do when you're 100 years old?

When I'm 100 years old, I'll be wearing dentures for sure. But what I really want is to stay forever young-looking, always looking 20+ years old. Come to think of it, I'm already a quarter of a century old!


When we think about staying forever young, there are a few people we can think of. They never seem to show any signs of aging. People like Vivian Hsu.

Vivan Hsu was born in 1975. At the age of 50, which means she's half a century old, she hasn't aged a single bit, only sexier, prettier and more elegant!

A photograph she has taken during her younger days, taken from internet.

She doesn't age, does she?!
How do you think you'll look like when you're 100 years old?

Here's someone who has remained so close to our hearts. She's a 100 years old this year, yet as young and energetic as ever. To her, her 100th year marks a new and better beginning. --- NESTLE!

Since 1912, Nestle has journeyed together with Singapore in more ways than one. From products, to services to community and social projects. First, let's take a look at the legendary Milo Van, past and now.  It's amazing how Milo has always been with us.

The Milo van is a classic.
Remember how students will flock down to a stationed milo van for a cup of Ice Milo at your school's annual Sport's Day, or at National Day Parades? The taste of Milo taken from the Milo van will always taste better than the ones we make at home ourselves! Perhaps it's the environment, when a school of students is after a milo van, the ones you get always taste the best.

During school and outdoor camps, breakfast and supper will be accompanied with either Milo or plain water. Camp leaders wakes up and make hot Milo with sugar for the campers to start and end the day!

Then there's Milo Dinosaur, Milo crunchy bars and Milo powder spread on bread and so much more!

Here's another Nestle product: Milkmaid condensed milk. The chinese characters on the milkmaid means 'red letters'. Which explains the colour of the fonts you see.

Clarified: The “red word” in Milkmaid is an OLD logo. It is printed as part of the logo back then because not many people could read English then. Thus, the old people call it “ang zi gu ni”. It means “the milk with red words” in Hokkien.

This is my favourite cereal, Koko Crunch. The image below is the oldern cover of Koko Krunch. The cover is being replaced by a Koala bear now. You know what I remembered most about the cereal?

Its their TV commercials!

Do you still remember this little boy who'll ask the Koala bear in the commercial, "How do they pack so much chocolate in Koko Krunch?"

And POOF, It became Koko Krunch!
I've always believed that the tornado really did that to the wheat field.  *bleah*


Now there's classic Kit kit commercials too! The one about the Panda, remember?
Have a break, have a Kit Kat!

Like I said, Nestle remains young and energetic, full of NEW surprises! Marking their 100th year with Singapore, check out their new product, the Dolce Gusto series which comes in 6 flavours & its machine.

Indulge in luxurious coffee, cafe style, right at home!




To celebrate Nestle's 100 years birthday, I was invited to Children Little Museum at Kampong Glam to attend a toy-making workshop, reminiscing paper kite and gyroscope making with a group of bloggers!

The guys took turns to play the Chapteh.
That's AussiePete daddy showing his son, Jaime, how to play the chapteh.

And this is the most adorable Jamie!

The girls took turns to try out the 5 stones games.

The group then learnt how to make paper kites and paint the respective kites revolving around the theme "Nestle 100 years".

Jerome very engross in his kite-making.



Here's what I painted. The last time I did art and craft was more than a decade ago.


There was a nail on the floor and I accidentally tore my leggings! But all well ends well, I was given a kit kat shirt which was long enough to cover the hole before I head off to the Super Junior Concert!
