Drag performer Mona Kee Kee at Hans Im Glück

Drag performer Mona Kee Kee at Hans Im Glück

Great to see Mona Kee Kee again. She performed at Hans Im Glück Republic Plaza (Raffles Place) earlier as part of HIG’s dive into events that have a gay-friendly theme. The event is called Fairytale Forest since… well… you have to see Hans Im Gluck. 🙂

I’m actually 5’5″ okay. She makes me look like I’m 5’1″.

I think it was in 2015 when I first saw Mona Kee Kee perform as part of RIOT! the drag revue with Becca D’Bus.

Hans Im Gluck has four branches in Singapore (Orchard, Raffles Place, Boat Quay, and Vivocity). My fave branch is Boat Quay because of the waterfront ambiance. But the Raffles Place branch inside Republic Plaza is quick access to the MRT.

Today I tried their speciality burger which is found on the bookmark-looking menu card they have. I learned that it’s a recipe unique to Hans Im Gluck Singapore.

The German burgergrill has hosted some events together with events team Man About Town.

This post IS NOT sponsored. I just enjoy the burgers. 🙂

FDS won silver and bronze in the International Business Community Mixed and Open categories. You can see videos I took at the end of this post. We headed down to Boat Quay to watch them compete against other expat teams. I’ve never seen so many dragon boat teams in one spot. Congratulations FDS!

The rest in photos (and videos at the end).

Supermodelme Sirens press event at Kinki

Supermodelme Sirens press event at Kinki

Our channel and its partners launched Supermodelme Sirens at a press event yesterday. It was at Kinki, a Japanese resto-bar in upscale Collyer Quay (almost pronounced like KALERKY). Good times! Two Filipino models are in the bunch (one from Manila, the other from Australia). 2013 Miss Universe Singapore, Shi Lim, is also one of the models. I wanted to have a photo with her being a pageant fan but I’m too shy! Our marketing team and other colleagues were so busy to put this event up. Congrats guys. Cocktails pls!

The Filipino Dragons (Singapore) (FDS) participated as guests today at the 2014 Singapore National Games. It was great to watch them in action! I took some photos of FDS (and other teams). You can see some videos I took at the end of the photo collection.

After three dragon boat sessions, I’m in love with that sensation on the boat.

This is the first time I saw them use a different dragon boat (DBS). FDS has it’s own boats.

I was awestruck by their energy. Makes me want to train real hard.

This group (I’ve tried researching their logo on the cap) were a fun and happy bunch. I loved their energy!

The 2014 Singapore National Games are being held at the Singapore Sports Hub until 9 November.

Here are two videos taken from this morning:

Male Team 1 – 200 meters (I don’t know the jargon yet! I promise to update this.)

Female Team (partly obscured – they are in Lane 5 or Boat 5)

Business as usual on Halloween ’14

Business as usual on Halloween ’14

The office Ministry of Fun organized a “Halloween” treat earlier. It was an excuse to drink some wine and act silly in costumes. I like the team effort exerted by the other departments. One group came as an entourage of scarecrows. I bought a mask at FairPrice to take part in the festivities. I wanted to go as Spider-Man but maybe when I’ve gotten rid of my beer belly.

BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore: Ana Ivanovic vs Simona Halep, up close!

BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore: Ana Ivanovic vs Simona Halep, up close!

Omg thanks to a colleague from marketing, I got a pair of tickets to watch the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore last night. It was actually a round robin match between World No. 4 (Simona Halep) vs World No. 7 (Ana Ivanovic) at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Lots of people in the stadium were cheering for Ana. We didn’t get to see the World No. 1 Serene Williams but it’s okay. Seeing anyone from the world’s top pool of tennis players is awesome.

Ana Ivanovic won the match. People were standing up to congratulate her. 🙂

Upcoming runs!

Upcoming runs!

There was a lull mid-year but I’m about to train for three upcoming races. I signed up for the corporate package for the Singapore Airlines Charity Run (5km) on November 2 and the SGX Bull Charge (5km) on November 14. I’m also running my first 21km on December 7 at the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. Hopefully I can keep up and beat my personal best.
