Six Thousand Participants Flagged-Off at the NTUC FairPrice Walks With U

Fascinating Time at the NTUC FairPrice Walks With U Event

SAMSUNG CSC

What a beautiful Saturday morning, waking up to cloudy skies at 6am and by 7am, I was at the Promontory at Marina Bay. The train was filled with people wearing shades of blue with the NTUC Fairprice logo and no matter where you stop you will see a family or two. I believe having events at the Promontory is very practical as there is the circle line Bay Front where you can stop at, so it’s ultra convenient.

Not only is it convenient, the Promontory is just next to the picturesque MBS where you can see the beautiful Merlion and CBD Landscape, you can see many families taking pictures along the walk and yes what a beautiful scene. Check out some pics I have taken along the way.

With a sold out event of 6000, I am not surprised to see many NTUC sponsors at the carnival giving out free goodies to all participants, I had my handsful even before the event lining up for goodies such as Peanut butter samples, Milk, Ice-cream, Fish Ball and the list goes on, the only challenge of getting to the sponsors tent which was the wet field that was caused by the unfortunate rain from yesterday, but hey what’s life without some struggle.

SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSCTruly a wonderful event as I like to see families of all walks and races coming to such an event. What can I say, beautiful weather, happy family and a wonderful organisers to boot. What can go wrong, no complains but one for me.

Please do not print the race bib the next time if you can save mother earth, maybe do a small arm band to confirm participants entry before they can enter the carnival tent or so: then only in the end of the event let them put in the band for the lucky draw. (How is that for saving mother earth)

ILLUMI RUN RETURNS, BIGGER AND BETTER

ILLUMI RUN Singapore is Back, The brightest party-run will be held over two nights with 18,000 entries available

Singapore, 28 August 2014 – Singapore’s ultimate party on the run, ILLUMI RUN, is back for the second year, and this year it promises to be bigger and better. Early Bird registration opens online tomorrow (29 August 2014) at 12pm, with 18,000 entries available over two nights on 28th and 29th November.

Making its debut in Asia in December 2013, ILLUMI RUN is a 5km non-competitive run where participants make their way through different themed music zones whilst being splashed with ILLUMI Glow Water for an exhilarating neon experience. Last year’s event saw 10,000 enthusiastic participants light up the night at the F1 Village for an unforgettable evening hosted by club DJs to a background of incredible pyrotechnic displays.

Returning on 28th and 29th November 2014, ILLUMI RUN will be hosting a two-day extravaganza to ignite the celebratory year-end mood. Due to the wonderful response last year, the neon fun run will cater for 18,000 people this year. The participant minimum age limit has also been lowered to 13 years old to include a younger generation of fun-lovers.

“We were very encouraged by the fantastic turnout at last year’s ILLUMI RUN and we seek to give our participants an even more amplified party this year. Many teenagers were keen to join last year and we are happy to announce that we are opening it up to them this time! We trust this will certainly be something for them to look forward to during their holidays,” said Jeffrey Foo, Director of Infinitus Productions and the brain behind ILLUMI RUN.

Prior to this year’s run, each participant will be equipped with improved merchandise such as a re-designed ILLUMI RUN tee, LED wrist-band, glow-in-the-dark shutter shades, and more. Committed to providing an unparalleled en route experience, this year’s musically themed splash zones will see more dousing with the ILLUMI Glow Water, and additions such as dancers to complement the nightlife atmosphere and create a full on clubbing experience en route. The run will conclude at the F1 Race Village with opportunities for participants to capture their luminous memories amongst the not-to-be-missed party that will continue into the night.

Registration begins online tomorrow with early bird prices of S$78 per person ending on 8 September. Normal registration will then kick-in from 9 September, but with the option of a 4 pax group registration at S$320.

Come with your friends and be ready to celebrate in neon as organisers prepare for the ILLUMI Glow splashing! For more information, please go to www.illumirun.com and relive your memories here:

Run For Your Lives: Singapore

Don’t miss the chance to catch Zombie Fever!

Both zombie and survivor slots are still up for grabs as Run For Your Lives returns for its second edition

28th August 2014 – Be prepared to Run For Your Lives, as the world’s premier Zombie-infested three to five-kilometre obstacle course returns to Singapore this Halloween, The second edition of Run For Your Lives will take place at the Grand Lawn, West Coast Park on 25 October 2014 from 12nn to 8pm.

Originally from the United States, Singapore quickly caught the Zombie fever with a wildly successful first-ever Run For Your Lives race at the Padang in January this year. With over 10.000 participants taking part in the initial experience, the second edition of Run For Your Lives looks set to once again take over our little red dot.

Participants can choose to either sign up as a Survivor or a Zombie, As a Survivor, the goal is simple: to get to the Safe Zone with at least one life remaining. The only catch is that there will be several hundred Zombies standing in your way. Survivors start off with three lives (Flags) strapped around their waist, and have to make their way past challenging obstacles all across the five-kilometer route to reach the safe zone. Successfully navigate through the Zombie-laden obstacle course and you’ll earn yourself a Survivors’s medal.

Zombies, on the other hand, have one job: satisfy your insatiable appetite for humans by grabbing flags off survivors. In order to become a full-fledge Zombie, one will have to go through an elaborate zombification process with full Zombie hair and makeup done up so as to ensure that all Zombies look the part.

The Zombie-infested race will be held at West Coast Park, a more spacious venue that will easily accommodate all obstacle and Zombie zones. This will allow for the route to alternate between open spaces and narrow pathway to give survivors either the feeling of freedom or impending danger throughout the race. With several blind corners in place, Survivors will not be able to anticipate what lies ahead. while Zombie will have the perfect opportunity to launch sudden attacks

Run For Your Lives; Halloween Edition aims to instill a higher level of fun and excitement for both Survivors and Zombies, made possible by Action Xand supporting partner, Monster Energy.

“After a successful first event, we’re glad to bring Run For Your Lives back to Singapore for the second time in a year. with the run now held at West Coast Park, fans can expect more interesting elements throughout the route. This event is perfect as a group activity for all ages, and that is when we’ve come up with a special group promotion to encourage maximum participation at Run For Your lives: Halloween Edition,” said Timothy Tan, co-founder of Action X. the local sports entertainment agency responsible for bringing Run for Your Lives to Asia.

There are still slots available for both Survivors and Zombies (selling fast) with individual slots priced at S$89.90. Form an alliance with your friends (Group of 4 or more) and enjoy tickets at a discounted price of S$69.90 each. You can purchase tickets to the Zombie Apocalpse at https://register.runforyourlives.asia/sg.

SAMYANG Chicken Flavor Ramen (6)

It come’s in a pack of 5 and it cost about $5.90 and you can get it from your local NTUC, but NEVER ever ..EVER get this from GIANT, first time I got it and Giant priced it at $7.50, What a RIP OFF.

Casio Launches the EXILIM EX-FR10 Freestyle Camera Designed for Fun and Recreation

Innovative two-part modular camera designed for “freestyle shooting” that captures amazing moments from any angle imaginable 

Singapore, 26 August 2014: Capturing memories on camera will never be the same again with the EX-FR10, Casio’s latest addition to its EXILIM family of compact digital cameras, available in Singapore at the end of September 2014. The innovative two-part modular design enables users to explore a myriad of perspectives and camera angles currently not possible with conventional cameras today.

Casio EX-FR10

“The EX-FR10 is one of the most exciting and creative series in our EXILIM range of high-performance cameras. Three years ago we surprised our customers with the EXILIM TR series that came with a first-of-its-kind 360° rotating frame for more flexibility to take the ultimate ‘selfie’. The new EX-FR10 not only provides flexibility, but also unlimited photo opportunities and we are excited to see this camera in action on the streets in Singapore,” said Mr. Daniel Lee, Marketing and PR Manager, Casio Singapore.

Modular Design for “Freestyle Shooting”

The camera module easily docks or detaches from the LCD-equipped controller providing three distinct styles of shooting when using the EX-FR10. It can either function as a ‘Conventional Camera’ by docking and folding the camera module on its hinge, used in ‘Selfie’ style with the camera upright and LCD screen facing self-wards, or transformed to the innovative ‘Split’ style by detaching the module and shooting remotely with the controller or hands-free using the interval shooting function.

Users can explore even more unique perspectives by placing the camera module anywhere they wish and monitor the image composition on the LCD screen before snapping away. The module features an intuitive touch display instantly familiar with smartphone users, connects wirelessly and instantaneously to the controller via Bluetooth1, letting users truly enjoy the ultimate freestyle shooting experience with framed shots or candid moments. This two-part modular design even allows for effortless capturing of the increasingly popular back portrait shot, a method of shooting that has been challenging up until now.

Usability, Flexibility and Durability

The EX-FR10 comes bundled with various functional accessories making it a fun travel companion to take on holidays.

Use the Multi-angle Grip to attach the camera module to a backpack or switch to the Multi-angle Belt Set to strap it on the wrist or forehead to take pictures on the go or record videos with 360 degree views. Multiangle Casio

The EX-FR10 also hangs comfortably around the neck with a lanyard or conveniently clips on to belts or hooks using a carabiner for a truly hand-free experience. It also comes with its own Tripod Adaptor to attach the camera module or controller to a standard adaptor that accepts a tripod screw.

accessories casio Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy bringing the EX-FR10 on any adventure without a worry. Weighing at nimble 175g, the camera is designed to be light and compact but also dust-proof, splash-proof and resistant to drops of up to two metres, complete with an attachable lens hood for extra protection.

Share Photos Instantly on Social Media

No adventure is complete without sharing the memories instantly with friends and family on social media, by sending images to any smartphone2 via the camera’s built-in Wi-Fi3 capabilities.

Taking the experience one step further, users can also choose from two exciting functions to design their own photo slide show or short movie. A Highlight Photo function automatically selects still images and produces a single collage of the day’s best photos with ten different collage options to play with, while the Highlight Movie function takes video recordings and turns them into short movies, complete with pre-installed background music.

Soldiers to get Adidas and Zoot running shoes from year’s end

The most recent news that caught my eyes was Adidas and Zoot being issued to the Servicemen of Singapore just yesterday.
The Singapore Armed Forces can look forward to choosing between Adidas and Zoot running shoes from year’s end, said Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen on Sunday. He mentioned in his Facebook
 “Dr Ng uploaded pictures of his three pairs of Asics running shoes – which NSmen use now – and said: “Like most of you, I was delighted with the Asics shoes… They were high quality and have given me many hours of happy walking and jogging. More good news for NSmen. The next set of running shoes will be from Adidas and Zoot and will be available at the end of the year.”
This will be the Singapore ArmedForces fourth change since 1995, They have been issued with Brooks, New Balance, Asics. Just from the looks of the picture I can’t tell what model of Adidas and Zoot it is, as I have not tried them before. but I can tell you it sure wont be Zoot 4.0 or an Adidas Tempo , What do you guys think of the changes? Will it be for the better ?
