Thanks Singapore Turf Club for having us 
at the annual Sakura Day @ The Racecourse on 5 Oct 2014!

We had a great time dinning together and also discussing on which are the winning horses.

 

The event was also in conjunction with the Panasonic Kranji Mile. The Panasonic Kranji Mile is the first Leg of the Singapore Triple Crown Series, which includes the Raffles Cup on 26 October 2014 and will culminate with the running of the Longines Singapore Gold Cup on 16 November 2014.

Mr Simon Leong, Vice President of Corporate Services, Singapore Turf Club said, “The Club has enjoyed this strategic partnership with Panasonic, who over the years has offered invaluable racing experiences for our patrons through the provision of innovative technology systems at our racecourse and premises.

“There is no better way to kick-start the Singapore Triple Crown Series than Sakura Day; with a deck of Japanese-themed activities to celebrate the vibrancy of the culture and coinciding with Panasonic’s sponsorship of the Group 1 feature race.  We hope that the guests will enjoy the complete experience and look forward to the other two upcoming Legs for the Series.”

Mr Wilfred Wee, Managing Director, Panasonic Systems Asia Pacific, commented, "Ever since our first foray into sponsorship with Singapore Turf Club, Panasonic has taken great pride in its associations with the world of sport and entertainment.  As such, the annual Kranji Mile represents a perfect partnership for Panasonic.  Whilst the Singapore Turf Club recognises the best quality experience at the races, Panasonic brings the best possible system solutions that combine quality and innovation to our valued customers in the business-to-business field.”

1) Nintendo GAME BOY


If you were born in the 80s, this will not be unfamiliar to you for sure.
Nintendo GAME BOY is a an 8-bit handheld video game device developed and manufactured by Nintendo in 1989. 

This was the coolest device you can own in the late 80s.  I could still remember how me and my brother saved our pocket money to buy one.

Game Boy started a revolution for portable gaming and my favorite game is Super Mario and Donkey Kong. If you are bored of the game, you can buy game cartridges to insert into the device to play.

2) Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game


I still remember there are card machine near my primary school which I can buy these cards.
Back then each card cost 20cents and depending on your luck you may get a special gold card which makes kid like me fascinated.

3) Block Catching


CAUGHT YOU!
What is block catching you may ask?
Block here is referring to HDB (Housing & Development Board) Block. And I remember me and my primary school classmates will often play block catching after school at the HDB block nearby our school. Normally the kids are split into 2 group and one group will be the Police and the other group will be the thieves. The Policeman's duty is to catch the Thieves and put them in jail. The designated area for the jail is usually at the lobby area of the HDB block. 

When the Thieves are caught, they are sent to the jail, where the other free Thieves can rescue them by touching their hands. But this is not an easy task, as the Policeman is always guarding around near the jail, waiting for other thieves to fall into his trap of saving the captured. But the free Thieves at the other end have to work together to distract the Policeman and lure him away. 

This game can be exhausting but really challenging.

4)  Goli (marble) Playing


This is one of the most common game for male students in the eighties which involving skills and accuracy. Typically played on sand, the marbles were placed in a drawn circle. All the players are to stand behind a straight line drawn several meters away and throw their marble to knock those marbles placed in the circle and each marble that was knocked out of the circle was a victorious claim. As if that was not exciting enough, some even resorted to put coins into the circle. And if you hit the coins out and the money goes to you too!

5) Rubber (Eraser) Playing


Still remember this erasers with flags?
They are not just for correcting mistakes in your schoolwork, students also use them to pit their 'tossing skills! I remembered I used to play with my classmate beside me when we find the lesson boring. 

How do we play this? Usually play within 2 players and you have to try to overcome the opponent by tossing the eraser on his/her. If it lands on top, you win.

6) Collect Saga (Love) Seed for love


Back then, school boys like me will collect Saga seeds in bottle and present them to the girl as a form of expressing our love. Best time to pick them will be after a heavy rain and there will be a lot of Saga Seeds fallen from the trees.

***********

I think a lot of such practices had already discontinued.
You don't see kids running and screaming around the corridor playing block catching anymore and they are more likely seen playing their iPad on the sofa or bed. 

Check out how kids react to GAME BOY!!!

 Recently attended the “Natvia Media Launch” held at Drips Bakery and Café!

Drips Bakery and Café
82 Tiong Poh Road, #01-05, S(160082)


What is Natvia?

We created Natvia because we wanted a healthy, natural alternative to artificial sweeteners and sugar. And it seems, so do lots of people. Give the people what they want and let them enjoy a 100% natural sweetener. 

Natvia is a 100% natural sweetener. Our innovative growing and blending techniques are the secret to our taste, ensuring that every grain of Natvia has a sweet, clean and natural flavor. Like the Colonel and his secret blend of herbs and spices, we too have our secret recipe. Natvia is unique and not just a non-sugar sweetener. It is a secret and special formulation of all natural sweeteners. 


Over 600 trials were done to ensure our taste was just right. 

So whilst the process is complex and confidential, the ingredients are well known. Natvia uses the very best Stevia, combined with naturally occurring nectar known as Erythritol. Stevia is a sweet leafed plant, part of the Chrysanthemum family. The leaves of the Stevia plant have an incredible sweetness that is 300 times sweeter than sugar and are also non calorific. It has been part of the human diet for thousands of years but only since the 21st century, due to demand, has it been used for everyday use around the world.



Can you believe all the dessert on the table are made using Natvia Natural Sweetener?




And the best part is they tasted so delicious and I cannot tell they are made using natural sweetener!
