Is taking the IPPT a pain to you?
Then here is a good news to all NSmen!!!

All NSmen should be happy to know that the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) for National Servicemen will be reduced from the current five stations to just three: A 2.4km run, sit-ups and push-ups. Which mean the shutter run, pull ups and standing board jump will be removed. I think a lot of people wouldn't mind doing push ups than pull ups. Or maybe that is just me...

I heard the aim of the changes is to get more NSmen to keep healthy as a lifestyle and also to help them pass their test.  We are still not sure when the changes will be implemented. The last time such changes to the IPPT format were made in 1982. 

The new test system will not require NSmen to meet a minimum passing mark for every station, Dr Ng said.There were be more age bands and a new scoring system. Instead of a pass mark for each station, points will be awarded and the combined points from the 3 stations will be used. This way, soldiers can make up through more sit-ups, if they are weak in push-ups and running, or vice versa.

The overall passing mark will remain "about the same as before" for Full-Time NSmen, Regulars and Awards, while some adjustments will be made based on past data for NSmen according to what was reported.

I'm looking forward for the new changes and I believed with this scoring system, more people will be able to pass their IPPT.

More details will be released by Chief of Army Perry Lim on Thursday.

To bring Nature + The City to life in Singapore, Kiehl’s has partnered with award-winning singer Olivia Ong to design a 10th Anniversary limited-edition Calendula Herbal Extract Toner and a Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. 


Joining Ms. Ong in the initiative, are 7 of Singapore’s most exciting artists and influencers who has created artworks that conveys the incomparable way in which nature blends within Singapore, “The Garden City.” All artworks were inspired by one of Kiehl’s most iconic and long-standing ingredients from nature -- Calendula Flower -- as the focus.

They have created art pieces inspired by Kiehl’s Calendula flower ingredient and Singapore as a garden city. These Nature + The City artworks will also be auctioned at the end of the program, with 100% of the auction’s proceeds benefiting the Garden City Fund, a registered charity and IPC established by National Parks Board.

The public are also welcomed to take part in the program by creating their own artwork inspired by nature within the city of Singapore. And for every drawing, Kiehl’s will be donating $5 to the garden city fund to help build the city in a garden.

Celebrate Mid Autumm Festival 2014 with SUCRE's limited edition ART BOX mooncake gift set. They are available from now till Sept 9 at Mid Autumn Festival Fair at Bugis Junction, fashion concept store, Made by Lauren Jasmine, and online at www.ruedusucre.com.

Truely a great gift for your loved one


With its playful geometrical shapes and bold colours that bring to mind an artist‟s paint board, SUCRE‟s ART BOX draws a link with the ‘palette’, a universal signifier of art which artists treasure and use as a value gauge and colour guide when creating their paintings.

“When a customer purchases a SUCRE mooncake set with its „palette‟ of shapes and hues, he or she also comes into ownership of a deeply valued „ART BOX‟,” explains Lucy Pek, founder of SUCRE, whose unique Lunar New Year creations were featured earlier this year by Package Design Magazine in the US.



Design studio KNACK was commissioned by SUCRE to create ART BOX, which is available in 1,000 limited edition keepsake sets this year. Set in bold pink, the ART BOX has a luxurious gold foil filigree on the top right hand border, adding significant visual weight to the box and communicating its premium quality. To its left, ART BOX features a quadrant lined with SUCRE‟s iconic orbs. SUCRE‟s trademark circular motif also appears on the cover of the ART BOX as a tactile design feature in the form of a large embossed pattern, the raised surface detail giving the box a textured feel upon handling. Each ART BOX is accompanied by a luxury paperbag in matt-black, topped off with a gold foil finishing that radiates like the rays of the sun.

Taste the traditional mooncake


This year, SUCRE, creator of gourmet pineapple truffles, goes back to the roots of good old-fashioned mooncake flavours for the Mid Autumn Festival, serving up White Lotus Seed Paste with Macadamia Nuts, White Lotus Seed Paste with Single Yolk, and others.



This Mid Autumn Festival‟s highlight flavour is a perennial favourite with a twist – the White Lotus Seed Paste with Melon Seeds and Dried Cherries. SUCRE‟s Chef Patissier has incorporated dried cherries in the mooncake, with the tartness of the dried cherries perfectly tempering the sweetness of the white lotus seed paste.

On their exterior, SUCRE‟s mooncakes have been specially crafted with the words „SUCRE‟ and „甜 聚’. Given that „甜’ means sweet while „聚’ refers to reunion, SUCRE mooncakes make for perfect gifts for loved ones and families during the Mid Autumn Festival, which is also known as a festival of reunion.

Click & Pick Up
Ordering SUCRE mooncakes has never been easier as SUCRE continues to be one of the leaders of the „Click & Pick-up‟ trend in Singapore‟s pastry scene. From July 15 to September 9, simply place your ART BOX order online at www.ruedusucre.com and pick it up at any of SUCRE‟s 3 partnering retail stores in Central Singapore.

Point of Sale
From August 25 to September 7, SUCRE‟s ART BOX gift sets will be on sale at the Mid Autumn Festival Fair at Bugis Junction (Level 1 Hylam Street).

SUCRE‟s ART BOX will also retail at Made by Lauren Jasmine, a fashion
concept store founded by the creators of multi-label boutique, Eclecticism, which is located at Orchard‟s Wheelock Place. “SUCRE‟s attention to detail, passion for art and design, and love of food are in perfect sync with Made By Lauren Jasmine‟s approach towards fashion and coffee,” says Hazel Chang, Director of Eclecticism & Made by Lauren Jasmine.
