If you haven't heard, there are some major changes going on at Downtown East! The first phase of construction of Refreshing Downtown East project is completed and with that the first group of guests have checked into D'Resort today!

Yes, D'Resort is the newly constructed resort which used to be the previous Coasta Sands Resort. If you are an Eastie, you will probably remember the chalet outings you used to have there, with the 2-storey rooms and the BBQ pits, not forgetting Wild Wild Wet and the Escape theme park. If you enjoyed these chalet elements, do not worry because they have been specially preserved.

Can you believe that these are the 2-storey rooms that have replaced those you used to stay in previously?

First floor (Beach Duplex)
Second floor (Beach Duplex)
That's not all. BBQ pits are located right outside the rooms and they are so much bigger!

Here are some of the other rooms available:

This series of Rainforest rooms have been specially prepared for those who enjoy solace. Families can choose from different themes such as jungle, underwater or M&M's.



For those who seek to enjoy premium comfort, choose your pick from the Rainforest Executive, Rainforest Suite and the Rainforest Premier Suite.



With a total of 387 rooms, there is a room for everyone, kid or adult. There will be something that appeals to you, whether it is that M&M's theme that makes you feel like a kid again or that gorgeous suite.

The concept of the resort is to bring the outside in and inside out. What does this mean? In the rooms are photographs of Pasir Ris be it beaches or mangroves and they seek to engage the guests to explore these places. It brings Pasir Ris to the guests in that sense and a variety of activities will also be available for families to participate in to bring them out, namely nature trails and mangrove tours conducted by U Live Park ambassadors.

If you have been tempted by the photographs but the prices are a concern, you will be pleased to know that the rooms are affordable with early bird rates available 6 months in advance. Now it operates the same way budget airlines does in terms of pricing. For NTUC members, Park View chalets are exclusively available for you, together with discounted BBQ pits and parking.

Besides the expanded water park, Wild Wild Wet, there will also be enhanced Membership & Union Community Engagement (MUCE) facilities and a range of food and beverage and retail outlets in the near future, come 2017. With so much to look forward to, I am certainly excited to see what the new Downtown East will look like! I also can't wait to stay in D'Resorts, especially when the waterpark is up and running! As it is, the resort looks great and with Pasir Ris Park being in the vicinity, the place promises a whole lot to see and do.

American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), America's favorite jeans brand, officially opened its first store at VivoCity on Friday, 19 June 2015. I'm honored to be invited to the exclusive Media Preview Party which was held on 18 June. At the event, I saw many members of the media, fashion influencers and invited VIP guests, with more than 300 attendees throughout the evening.


Joshua Tan and Tosh Zhang of 'Ah Boys to Men' fame also made celebrity appearances at the store to grace the event.



Spanning 4,000 square-feet, the flagship boutique featured rugged and natural building materials portraying the AEO concept that encourages you to "be yourself" and "live freely". American culture influences and varsity styles were also prominent in the design concept. Guests were amongst the first in Singapore to browse and purchase the latest designs from the AEO Summer 2015 Collection.











The new AEO store at VivoCity also featured an exceptional selection of denim washes and fit styles that left shoppers spoilt for choice. From cuts such as Slim Straight, Super Skinny and Original Taper for men to Jeggings, Skinny and Boy Jean for women, the AEO Jeans line was definitely the star of the show.


From 7pm, guests started arriving in high spirits and the VivoCity Basement 1 level was buzzing with activity as they explored the new boutique grounds. Models dressed in trendy outfits from the AEO Summer 2015 Collection interacted with the crowd, carrying fun AEO photo props and taking selfies with the guests.

To mark the opening of AEO's first boutique in Singapore, Sonia invited StarThreeSixty CEO Mr. Andy Chaw, StarThreeSixty Senior Vice President (Brands) Mr. Ken Liew and AEO representative Mr. Kareem Gahed to the stage front for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.



With the store officially open, guests mingled freely and participated in activities such as ice air hockey and foosball as the DJ set played on.

Guests could also collect AEO tattoos in five different designs to wear. Throughout the evening, many guests gave kudos to the Summer 2015 Collection and were seen picking their favourite items to try on or purchase. As the guests browsed the racks, they were treated to chilled bottles of Desperados and glasses of champagne served alongside treat bags of popcorn, irresistible Krispy Kreme doughnuts and canapés such as Wagyu beef burgers and grilled prawn skewers.

Besides editors and members of the fashion, lifestyle and entertainment media who turned up in full force, familiar faces spotted at the Media Preview Party include radio DJs Daphne Khoo, Heng Kae In, Joakim Gomez, Tabitha Nauser and Xie Jia Fa; models Fiona Fussi and Henrique Fukuoka; MTV VJ Hanli Hoefer; singer Jonathan Chua from The Sam Willows; SEA Games 2015 celebrity ambassador Russell Ong; TV host Richard Herrera; actors Keagan Kang and Paul Foster; influencers Benjamin Toh, Cynthia Lee Mcquarrie, Iman Fandi Ahmad, Jon Yongfook, Jonathan Raedeke, Justin and Vanessa Vanderstraaten, Maia Lee, Randy Toh and Soh Pei Shi; and celebrity stylists Annie Chua, Jerome Aswathi, Lionnel Lim, Marcus AC, Sharon Tan and Trey Wong

The first 10 persons received $100 vouchers; the next 50 received $50 vouchers and the next 100 received $20 vouchers.

To mark over 160 years of service to the community and to celebrate Singapore's Golden Jubilee (SG50), Kiehl's Since 1851 is proud to launch "A Celebration of Our Heritage".

This is a project by Kiehl's to assist in the preservation of Singapore's National Monuments. Commitment  to the local communities in which we live in, has always been intrinsic to Kiehgls. Over 50 year ago, the second generation founding-family member, Mr Aaron Morse established the Mission of Kiehl's in saying: "A worthwhile firm must have a purpose for its exisitence. Not only the everyday work-a-day purpose to earn a just profit, but beyond that, to improve in some way the quality of the community to which it is committed. Each firm-as should each person- contributes to those around it; and by dint of its day-to-day efforts, the message it thereby imparts is a revelation of the quality standard at which its life's work is conducted."

Kiehl's is taking a proactive step to highlight the importance of the preservation of Singapore culture through the preservation of National Monuments, which are of historical and architectural significance and national importance. On top of generating public awareness for this initiative, Kiehl's will also be donating 100% of the net proceeds from the limited edition products sold in the month of June to aid in the restoration of these beloved monuments.

_________________________________________________

Limited Edition Heritage-Designed Products




To support this, in the month of June, Kiehl's will be launching limited-editions of the iconic products Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Oil-free Gel Cream, $48 each for 15ml, which will have the Kiehl's X Singapore Heritage Design adorning the caps. Kiehl's will donate 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the limited-edition designed products to the restoration of National Monuments.
