Throw A Tupperware Party

By , September 22, 2011 2:22 pm

Tupperware is a household brand that is almost like a religion passed from generation to generation. Our grandmothers know it, so do our mothers and now their daughters.
Whilst I am comfortably eating home cooked food and lovingly cared for by my mum, Tupperware was a brand I know but never cared to discover.
I cannot be blamed; after all, the infamous Tupperware Parties are usually thrown by married women for married women (a direct marketing deployed to demonstrate Tupperware products).
However, after attending my first Tupperware Party as a single, the concept is set to revolutionalise.
As social media goes viral and rampant in this modern era of young people, the Tupperware Party is the real social network. Interacting real-time and real-life.
So much healthier for society instead of virtual stalking, yo!
Here’s how you re-create your own Tupperware Party (Typically you have to sign-up to be a TPW distributor and earn cash as you party. I’ll leave you to find out more here)
1)   Invite real friends and have intimate conversations, not this sort.
2)   A cosy home with an enviable kitchen
3) Prepare a 3 course meal (try these recipes here)
Prepare them with your guests, get them participating in the gastronomic creations with TPW products. Be the host with the most, your guests can taste the love like how Chef Wan, Asia’s most flamboyant food ambassador threw his TPW party.
A TPW Party is all about celebrating the importance of taking time to enjoy the simple joy of a wonderfully prepared meal, coupled with good company and creating memorable moments that facilitate great conversation.
I never knew TPW had such great innovative products!
My personal favourite were the collapsible Tupperware. Great to sneak into your handbag for buffets, and when filled to the brim, expand and stuff more in from the buffet!
They were smart, simple, good living solutions.

Angry Birds Face-Off Challenge

By , September 21, 2011 9:56 am
Kudos to Finnair coming up with this innovative marketing strategy to associate Finnair/Finland with the most addictive game ever played. Without this, I would have still thought that Angry Birds is the brainchild of the Americans.

Recruitment was solely via Twitter (show us how much of an AB fan you are) and I must say it was highly effective from some hundreds of entries. I submitted these, I happen to be part of this craze (albeit me a fake fan) with my two creations.

Besides, entry was effortless and the prize was pretty darn attractive! Fly to Helsinki, the capital of Finland where the makers of Angry Birds reside. What more, experience an Angry Bird themed flight on Finnair. Now, that’s a first!

Even though I hardly play Angry Birds (because I have a better life than to be a geeky addict), I had to give it a shot. My creative entry won me a spot in the 8 players challenge.
I love Changi airport, and I am proud of Changi for putting the little red dot on the map like the red dot on foreheads; noticeable. This collaboration with Changi airport was commendable but I must say @fansofchangi lost a fan because of their professionalism that took flight.

Knowing I’ll have zero change in winning the game, I dressed to kill. After all, knowing how Singaporeans are like, I predicted that no one would be game enough to take the Best Dressed Team prize. Unless someone shows up in this.

Granted, I was a one person team (if I wasn’t as petite, can I be considered a two-man team?) but I was spot-on about shy Singaporeans. No one dressed up more than the AB tee off the rack and some AB print outs.
I gleefully rubbed my hands and thought that $250 Changi Airport voucher prize would come in useful for DFS. After all, I fulfilled the criteria of a theme (Finnland’s colour),and  I was creative (I am a egg harvester).

Unfortunately for me, @fansofchangi was a tasteless flight of fancy with fickle bending of rules to tip in their corporate favour. For whatever reasons, they gave the prize intended for Best Dressed to the 2nd top scorer. Maybe he put in more effort with swiping his finger in the challenge.  I am hurt, @fansofchangi.

I am not hard up for the $250, dear @fansofchangi but still, this was very much of a turn-off, it is as if you are all show and tell, not honoring your word. It made me doubt if you really cared about your fans.

Even Finnair feels the same.

On a happier note,

I met the more sincere Finnair people and if I haven’t participated, I wouldn’t have thought of Lapland as a travel destination. Touted as Santa’s home, you can take reindeer rides, sit on Santa’s lap, live in see-through Igloos and gaze at the breathtaking Northern lights.

So, to win a seat on this inaugural Angry Bird flight was very easy. 8 of us had to face-off each other by playing the game. While 2 players go up, the other 6 were not allowed to peep.

Some very amusing quotes overheard from the contestants.

“OMG, not that stage!!!!”

(This was mumbled to herself just by HEARING the emcee briefly described the level setting. While the first 2 players face-off, the rest were banned from peeping. We played Level 3; stage 18-21 by the way, when it was my turn, I even had to ask “what’s the black and white bird’s power?”)

One of the male contestants wore an AB tee, complete with peeping socks. The emcee asked another male contestant if he own one as well. He raised his eyebrow and defensively retorted, “Of course not!” complete with an incredulous tone.

My friend asked which adult would wear an AB tee out! Apparantly many.
After all, i wore THIS out. But in argument, i wore it for the contest and it isn’t my everyday fashion (or maybe @fansofchangi couldn’t tell.)

The supporter of the commenter (OMG, not that stage!), a late 30s lady went up to the organizers “Can she (points to friend) keep her number badge?”

So yes, it was definitely a face-off amongst the hard-core fans.

This was the very excited winner of the Angry Birds Challenge, smacking her lips at the thought of flying that very night to Helsinki.

She was really good; she could have played Angry Birds blind folded.

Macdonald’s Open Doors Tour

By , September 14, 2011 12:27 am

I’m Lovin’ the Open Doors.

In today’s era of high speed Internet, consumerism has evolved. Transparency and engagement is expected of brands and the Golden Arch is right on the curve by opening its kitchen doors to all since 2009.

Never knew such an initiative existed till last Saturday where every invited blogger went into a Macdonald frenzy and together with Silver, we wolfed down 2 boxes of nuggets, 1 Mcwing, 2 cup corn, Medium french fries,a Horlick McFlurry, 1 Fillet O Fish, a Big Mac and 1 Cinnamon Melt.

Don’t you just hate us for eating so much but remaining skinny?
Psst…my secret is sucking in. Silver just distracts you with her gorgeous wide eyes that says,
” No, i’m not a glutton.”

Whilst you’ll soon get the exact lowdown of the Open Doors tour by other bloggers, I’ll not spoil the elusive fantasy that you have of Macdonald since childhood. You can sign up for the tour yourself at from 18 Sept 2011 to 19 Feb 2012.

Like how I went to Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Mass Communications because of its produce of local celebs like Jamie Yeo, Cheryl Fox, Jean Danker and Vernetta Lopez (who ALL 2 of them romanced Glenn Ong), success starts at Macdonald.

Just to name drop, Shania Twain, Pink, Rachel McAdams, Jay Leno, Amazon’s CEO all started at the Golden Arch flipping burgers.

And while sandwiches in China are made this way, you can be sure at Macdonald’s you won’t be short changed.

Deadly Farts.

By , September 9, 2011 10:50 pm

My older brother loves to fart in my younger brother’s face. It may be a silly boyish joke (men do take more pride in their farts than women), but subconsciously it could be a sign of dominance? Like how my male rabbit humps the other male rabbits head (i don’t think it’s really asking for head).

People make jokes about farts and farting all the time.

It actually is no joke, it could be a deadly matter.

A 30 year old man in Denmark is walking a little more gingerly lately, after a minor surgery to his buttocks turned into a smouldering mess.

The man was laying on an operating table in a local hospital having a mole removed from his buttocks. The doctor was using an electric scalpel to remove the mole and cauterize the incision, when the man passed gas. The electric scalpel combined with the methane gas was enough to create a spark that ignited the surgical spirits covering the man’s genitals, setting them on fire.

The man, who is now suing the hospital, said: “When I woke up, my penis and scrotum were burning like hell. Besides the pain, I can’t have sex with my wife.”

Surgeons at the hospital said: “It was an unfortunate accident.”

So, don’t take a fart lightly.
Know your farts.
Prevent unfortunate accidents.

The best fart facts scoured from the Internet…

What are Farts?
Farts are aerosolized poop. The sounds are produced by vibrations of the anal opening, the tightness of the sphincter muscles of anus. This sounds quite like a turn-on.

The gas in our intestines comes from several sources: air we swallow, gas seeping into our intestines from our blood, gas produced by chemical reactions in our guts, and gas produced by bacteria living in our guts.

Can you Make a Living from Farts?
Like the Aunties from Phuket who make a living with queefs, a highly specialized kind of fart that comes from the genitalia of a woman, Le Petomane was a professional farter who could whistle tunes, blow out candles and send flames across the stage in the 20th century.

It may be unbelievable because it’s before our time, but Jack Ass proved it’s possible in modern times too.

The Segway Challenge.

By , September 8, 2011 10:45 pm

For the longest time, I didn’t want to convert to a smart phone. I was a late adopter of the iPhone. So I was happily using it, thinking there is no other better phone out there until I met the Samsung Galaxy SII.

To be honest, I was resistant to switching and lamented it was difficult to figure it out but all it took was a change of the mindset and fiddling with the phone. I have heard rumours that the Apple conspiracy is that the iPhone has a shelf life of 2 years. They all start to crank up, out of warranty period thus forcing you to get ANOTHER iPhone. Once you start, you can’t stop.

I do not like to be held ransom by technology, thus am I glad to be sponsored the Samsung Galaxy SII and if without these challenges, I wouldn’t have discovered its functions!

So, Steve Jobs commented that “Cities will be built around Segways”.

Lo & behold, I did the Segway. The maximum speed of a Segway is at 40km/hr & it costs $15,000 to own. Drink & drive. Not.

The Shady Business of Fashion,Not a Colour.

By , September 6, 2011 10:32 pm

A friend shared this link with me. In essence, here is her except.

I’m not the first victim of Terry Richardson, one of the world’s most notable ( I’d say notorious) photographers. He has shot Obama, Lil Wayne, Megan Fox, Kate Moss and many world-wide known celebrities and models. He has tried to trade sexual favors for a photo-shoot with him.

Would you fuck for fame?

Keeping it Real,

Jade Griffin xoxo

At first, with those small screen shots i thought this was a sorta thing that my friend shared. One of those made-up-stories. I squinted and read through the screen shots, looked up the flickr account mentioned. Lo and behold, Jade IS real and very pretty.
Pin Up!
Then i looked up Terry Richardson, still doubting the realism, thinking this is a joke, personal vendetta or malicious rumors. Instead of going to boring Wikipedia descriptions, i found Jennifer Wright who wrote a much more interesting profiling.

Terry Richardson is famous for his outrageous antics and infamous fun on sets…

He recently photographed a lesbian fashion orgy for Purple Magazine. It’s eye-catching. It was also photographed without Terry getting nudity approval from the model’s agents, which was kind of surprising, but at least one model on the shoot says that the nudity happened organically. A few days ago, Abby Kershaw remarked to the Times UK:

“Terry doesn’t force girls to do anything they don’t want to. He puts you in a G-string in a pile of mud because you want to do it. You touch yourself because you want to. For me, that shoot was the truth about how things were between us both, and I felt good doing it. I’m not ashamed of it — why should I be?”

That’s Terry, clothed.

Jen then spilled more and thought his work to be exploitive of women. Especially after German model Rie Ramussen called him out.

“He takes girls who are young, manipulates them to take their clothes off and takes pictures of them they will be ashamed of. They are too afraid to say no because their agency booked them on the job and are too young to stand up for themselves….His ‘look’ is girls who appear underage, abused, look like heroin addicts . . . I don’t understand how anyone works with him….I told him, “what you do is completely degrading to women. I hope you know you only fuck girls because you have a camera, lots of fashion contacts and get your pictures in Vogue.” Instead of arguing with me, Terry ran out of the bar. Then the next day, he called my agency and complained I called him names in front of clients in Paris. It was the most cowardly thing I have ever seen.”

Fellow Gloss writer, Jamie Peck who is a damn good writer who wrote a very candid, honest and detailed post about her experience with Terry.
I’m not a model, just a vain girl with nice tits who likes to pose for the occasional cheesecake photo. I modeled for Terry Richardson when I was 19. And guess what? I felt bad about it. Of all the fine folks I’ve frolicked au naturel for, he’s the only one who’s left me feeling like I needed to take two showers.
