League of Legends: A Twist of Fate

Last night, when I was looking for new ideas for my new videos on YouTube. I found out a new video uploaded by Garena Online Private Limited.

It was a very interesting video and fun to watch, as it involves many champions in a 4 minute plus video. Not to mention of all the powers involved, the action and transition in between the sequence is pretty unique and simple to understand. In addition, this video hits a total of 10 million views in just 4 days.

Furthermore, I also found out that this video is to promote their upcoming release of new maps into their gaming server: League of Legends. If you do not know about this game, check out my previous blog entry here.

However, the story of this blog post does not end here ...

Back to the first sentence that I mentioned, I downloaded this video and try ways to edit. After that, I upload into my channel.

You will think that the edited version is almost the same as the original. But think it this way, from the way I see it, it is another piece of video for me to test my video editing skills and also the ways to improve my pool of ideas.

But the most important of all, it's to kill the time !!

Office bullying in Singapore

Normally, I will not blog about such stuff that I got from Facebook. However, recently, this video somehow stirs everyone in Singapore to be fed up about this incident.

As you can see in the video below, the supervisor with the spectacle kept on hitting and slapping the person on the chair. However, the young man kept on staring at him and tried to reason his way out after being hit by the old man so many times.

Let's assume the young man is your closed ones or worst still your son, being bullied by an outsider for not giving him any chance to speak out, is totally unforgiving in a lawful country.

On May 18, this video was shared across Facebook with 2,685 shares and 660 likes by SMRT Ltd (Feedback) and followed in which an article was published onto the newspaper the next day as shown below.

Last but not least, a comic art to "discourage" office bullying in Singapore !!

[Advertorial] Kaplan Higher Education Academy Blog Campaign

Thanks to omy.sg invitation, I was able to blog about this campaign organized by the Kaplan Higher Education Academy (KHEA).

Here is the picture that I took with the Kaplan's mascots, after my lecture !!

Good-looking guy & girl (mascots) that'll be giving out flyers about Kaplan

About KHEA

Kaplan Higher Education Academy (KHEA) provides full-time education to students who wish to pursue a variety of diplomas and degrees, ranging in the disciplines of Accounting & Finance, Business & Management, Communication & Media, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Humanities & Social Sciences and Information Technology. 

In today’s competitive climate, KHEA recognizes the need to condense course syllabus based on the acquired abilities and prior learnings of students therefore for a Poly diploma student, a degree can be earned within a span of 12months-18months, depending on the approvals from the respective universities. 

KHEA partners with 6 top universities worldwide to ensure quality education and students at Kaplan receive the same degree parchment as students who study in the overseas university. KHEA, through Kapan Singapore has also won consecutive public voted awards such as JobsCentral Learnings and Rankings Survey and AsiaOne People’s Choice Awards.

Upon receiving this flyer from one of the mascots standing near the entrance of Singapore Polytechnic, I found it quite interesting. As a poly student like myself who have not graduated yet, I cannot make any assumption whether this academy is good or not. 

However, after seeing the programs that they provided onto the flyer, it somehow stirs up my intention of considering this academy as one of my choices for university studies.

Last but not least, do check out the good looking guy & girl that'll be giving out flyers about Kaplan. You can take photos with them (will be uploaded onto FB, you can then like their page and tag yourself for a chance to win shopping vouchers). You can also upload and tag your photos with them on Instagram with #KaplanSingapore to stand to win. The top 3 most liked photos from now till 15 June will win $250 shopping vouchers, with terms and conditions apply. :-)

Have a question for Kaplan? They have a useful inquiry form here!

Get myself DRUNK at Holland Village

Just like the title said it itself, I was somehow "accidentally" got myself drunk after many years for not taking any alcoholic drinks, except for some special occasions like celebrating and etc.

Here is the story - quite a small one actually of how I got myself drunk :-P

Storytelling session

Richmond invited me to go for a dinner at Holland Village because I waited him to discuss on a project and helped him to take care of Michelle (his unofficial girlfriend). This was to celebrate for the 1st successful matching and fee collection from his start-up company, Buddy Tutor.

We went into this restaurant, which Richmond worked as part-time before. I ordered a set meal (salmon) and a glass of white wine. Richmond and Michelle ordered a plate of pizza and a drink of soda with ice-cream (I think). We ordered ice-cream cakes as the desserts.

Richmond & Michelle shared this drink together

Michelle wanted both dishes to be taken together

My set meal (dinner)

Above - it's mine
Below - Richmond and Michelle

The menu named this as "cookie monster"

After the dinner, my glass of white wine still had around 8% of it. So, I forced myself to take 3% more to be left till the half glass. Thus, I told them that I cannot continue - because I know that if I continue to drink the rest of it, my skin problem would most likely "explode". 

Instead of letting it go to waste, Michelle picked up my glass and drank a mouthful of portion (around 3 to 4%). She told me that she's feeling cold to be sitting under the air-con, plus Richmond kept on telling her that the wine can keep warmth to oneself. 

~ LOL ~

On our way home in MRT, Michelle reminded me of my blushing-red face and I kept on telling them that #IamNotDrunk. But, the most amazing part of this story was that Michelle was the one who insisted that she's not drunk, despite that her arms and legs were covered  in "red". Her drunk status was more "funnier" than I was in. For instance, she would use Richmond as a punching bag and etc. 

[Not approiate to list her drunk behavior]

Anyway, that was an enjoyable night and the most fun with them had yet to come !! :-)

The Result of Malaysia General Election 2013

The vote counting for the General Election 2013, Malaysia, dragged on for several hours with numerous incidents of high tension and minor violence.

As at 2am, the Barisan Nationals have won 124 seats and the Pakatan Rakyat have won 73. Barisan Nasional cannot form two-thirds majority because opposition already has enough seats to block out that possibility.

Due to the unexpected result, a lot of Malaysians started this social media campaign by replacing their profile picture like this:

In addition, they even created this video to "mock" the votes count during the blackout.

In my personal opinion, I don't have any objection towards BN or PR. After all, it is the peoples' choice to decide their future. Happy or sad, we just need to adapt it somehow for the next 5 years. Well, let's just wait and see how this event is going towards !!

The Best PSY's GENTLEMAN Parody

If you've read my previous blog entry: Gentleman by PSY last month, you'll most likely to be interested in this post as well. This is because I managed to collect the best GENTLEMAN Parody and dance steps for our Singapore Version :-D

The original video of the parody is very near to perfection and this was by far, my hardest editing because it was hard to find any loopholes for me to match any other clips for it. 

Enjoy !!

Dinner at Ministry of Food

We were celebrated Richmond's birthday at Ministry of Food, Lot 1 Shopping Mall last night, alongside with his going-to-be girlfriend, Michelle.

We had the birthday cake in Singapore Poly during lunch time ~ consider this dinner was my birthday gift to him, since I didn't know what to buy for him. :-D

My set meal

My favorite side-dish: chawanmushi 

Richmond's Ramen

Michelle's set meal

As for the dessert, we ordered Icy waterfall as it contained 8 different flavors of scoop. I liked the taste of 5 flavors: chocolate, black sesame, strawberry, green tea and vanilla.

Also, you can just mix and match between each scoop to get a different sensation of tasting experience throughout the whole session. It is strongly recommended if you ever want to try the desserts at the Ministry of Food :-)

Last but not least, a close up photo of the couple !!

Michelle & Richmond
 Wish them to have an enjoyable night yesterday and as well as getting their relationship to a "confirm" status, ~ LOL ~ :-)

[Aftermath] Kiyomi = Gwiyomi

If you've read my previous post on Kiyomi = Gwiyomi a few weeks ago, you should roughly know the reasons behind it when I'm going to write this post.

As long as people type "Singapore Gwiyomi" in the YouTube search, you'll be able to see my video in the 1st position of the search list. Because it goes so much viral, YouTube has declared my video as the official one :-D 

Furthermore, my video has also been listed as the music in the main category of YouTube. :-)

As the saying goes: "Advertising is based on one thing - happiness. You have to make your client happy." Therefore, I came out this video to these new groups of subscribers and people who have liked my current-trending video ~ another sensation :-)

Hope that this video can help to bring a new trend in this month of May !!

[Sponsored] Fashion Event: Levi’s 501 Interpretation Event @ ION Orchard

I was invited by omy club to attend this fashion event at ION Orchard B4 event hall and thanks to the sponsor, 8 Days Magazine. Alongside with the rest of the bloggers and Mediacorp celebrities (Felicia Chin, Tosh Zhang, Ian Fang and Xu Ya Hui), we helped to promote the latest products on LEVI'S 501 ~ an exciting and entertaining event for the public to get enjoyable moments.

My 1st time doing motion picture :-)

Here is a brief timeline of Levi's before we proceed on to the main event !! You might be complaining that why I bother to write this short history, but if you read this closely till the end, then you might change your thoughts for a second :-)

* * *

When Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis partnered in 1873 to patent their copper riveted waist overalls – as jeans were first referred to - for the miners and cowboys of the American West Little did they know they know that their blue jeans would one day become one of the most classic fashion items of all time. 

Born from the need of stronger waist overalls, the XX jean had copper rivets at the point of strain. Levi Strauss and his business partner Jacob Davis, a tailor, received the US patent for their product on May 20th, 1873 which is considered the birth date of the blue jeans, Levi’s® 501® jeans. 

These first pair of blue jeans featured a cinch and buckle on the back of the waistband, which along with suspender buttons kept the pants in place no matter what kind of rough work their owner was doing. The Arcuate stitch design on the back pocket has been a feature since Levi’s® 501® jeans were first made, making it one of the oldest clothing trademarks in use today. 

In 1886 the Two Horse leather design was added to the back leather patch to further identify the brand. With the evolving needs of each generation, design features were altered and updated. For example, in 1922 belt loops were introduced as men started wearing their pants with belts. In 1936 the distinctive Red Tab was placed on the right back hand pocket to further differentiate Levi’s® jeans from imitators and then in 1971 the big ‘E’ in Levi’s® was changed to a small one. 

No other product has been interpreted, styled or re-imagined as much as Levi’s® 501® jeans - they have shaped and influenced the fashion world as we know it today. Over the years not only have they become one of the most revered items of clothing – having been titled Time Magazine’s ‘Fashion Item of the 20th Century’ – they have become part of the world’s visual landscape, its cultural heritage and the quintessential foundation of wardrobes around the world.

* * *

Levi’s® 501® jeans hold a seminal place in fashion history and over the last 140 years have developed into a cultural icon. From presidents to movie stars, rock stars to fashion icons, and artists to pioneers in technology – Levi’s® 501® jeans are among the most worn and loved jeans in the world. 

This Spring/Summer 2013, the Levi’s® brand is marking the 140th anniversary of its iconic 501® jeans by introducing a non-denim Levi’s® 501® collection for the first time. Breaking with tradition, yet maintaining the product’s true essence and timeless spirit, the three-piece non-denim collection is available in true chino, chalk blue and mineral red. The brand will also unveil the next generation in Levi’s® 501® jeans, which feature subtle and thoughtful changes to the design aesthetic, tailoring the product for the pioneers of today. 

Throughout the ages, Levi’s® 501® jeans have constantly evolved and adapted to stay relevant to each new generation, while never losing their distinct heritage. The next generation of Levi’s® 501® jeans and non-denim pants, give the wearer a slightly tighter silhouette, more comfort around the waist, feature slightly larger pockets to store your latest Smartphone, and have a shallower yoke for a cleaner aesthetic. They also feature stronger stitching and reinforced belt loops, inseams, buttonholes and cuffs. Craftsmanship and authenticity remain at the forefront, which is why Levi’s® 501® jeans also improve with age – molding to the contours of the wearer's body over time and creating a bespoke fit and finish for this perfect classic and timeless jeans.

After the brief introduction of the Yes 933FM's DJ, Ivy Tan, this was the brief introduction of each celebrity that came on that day. (See the video below !!)

A very short interview with Ivy to the 4 guests ~. ~

The first activity was to let the celebrities to help their fans (chosen by the host from a crowd of audience) to get the allocated jeans from a pile of racks within the time limit. Apparently, the fan with the orange shirt was the winner in the end. :-)

Latter, the fashion designer, Steve was introduced and came to give suggestions to the celebrities on their current style and gave some recommendations to the public. :-)

The second activity was to let the celebrities to freely customize their assigned models, using LEVI'S clothes to mix and match and with the help of Steve, they were managed to create different styles and unique ways to present their fashion taste.

Before letting the models go down to the stage to collect the votes from the public, they need to be conducted a short runway with the celebrities. ~ LOL ~

Calculating the number of stickers (votes) collected !!

Ta-DA ~ here's the winner !! :-)

Before I conclude this blog post, here's an exclusive clip that I managed to take down Tosh Rock's favorite move-set: break-dance. Note that, this is to dedicate to some of the Tosh's fans out there as one of the purpose for whom did not go down to this event. :-)

As what I know so far, Levi’s® is a brand that epitomizes classic American style and effortless cool. Since their invention by Levi Strauss & Co. In 1873, Levi’s® jeans have become the most recognizable and imitated clothing in the world – capturing the imagination and loyalty of people for generations.

[Did U Know?] Chopsticks - Made in China

Recently, I came across this video on Facebook that talked about the production of recycled chopsticks produced from China. 

After watching the video, the only conclusion that I felt was plastic forks and spoons are bad for the environment, which affect us negatively in the end. I think carrying our own washable metal chopsticks may be better. Although I myself also do not know whether the metal ones are also being produced like this process or not...

And, that is for all who are interested to dig the info out !!

 ~ LOL ~
