I was invited to the royal wedding of his highness King Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell by HBO Asia. For those who don’t know who they are, I’m gonna go “Whaaaaaaat” and also that they’re from the GAME OF THRONES.
A new season is beginning and thus, HBO Asia invited some of us geeks for a little get together at their event at Savour 2014. It’s at the Promontory this year.
Just a filler post. So have some very filling pannbiff, ah ha ha haaaa.
This was at Fika at Millenia Walk. They didn’t have Kopparberg so that’s actually Champis (they’re sodas) and it tastes kind of like Zapple, so apple soda. Mintea had Portello which DOES taste like caramel! It would probably taste really good as a float too.
I did blog about Fika at Beach Road before and YES, the food is still awesome, so yay!
Also, I picked up my Venus Run bag. I’ll be running next week and no, I’m not a run runner. I just uh, run and mostly walk too? It’s just 5km anyway.
Pretty much this is just a filler post since I have other things to post about in the week under State of Sarah.
For one thing, Scoot did reply to me and well… You’ll know soon what’s going to happen.
The ceremony was a week ago, the 20th Feb at the National Museum of Singapore. Finally we would know who would win for N.E.mation! 8 . I had no idea really but I hope that my teams would win.
I’m sure the other blogger ambassadors wanted their teams to win too of course!
We went to the national museum for the Total Defence 30th anniversary! There were so many cool things to do even before entering the museum.
Like playing with metal detectors and eating army rations or checking out their weaponry.
Unfortunately, by the time you read this, the special exhibition is oveeer.
OH AND BY THE WAY. I AM VERILY GLAD, my two teams in N.E.mation? THEY BOTH GOT INTO TOP THREE. The champion and the 1st runner up but that shall be a different post…
Anyway, Saturday really was random adventures day.
Not posting anything too much for this Monday but here’s a reminder…
Yes, don’t forget to vote for The 4 of Us II and Momento Mori. And vote all four methods, via the FB, the website, mobile web and sms.
Meanwhile, I got a mini interview up at Naiise. I curated a list of things to get for Valentine’s Day! Go check that out.
Oh and since Scoot didn’t get me the scooter I wanted, I went ahead and purchased it! We’ll see how it goes when it is delivered.
Eh this post looks so empty so here…
Here’s cajons being set up at Jurong regional library. That’ll be for another post since we made music!
I got invited to the Total Defence media conference the other day and I wondered if I should attend. OBVIOUSLY, I said yes hahahaha. Thanks AsiaPRWerkz for inviting me! Anyway, it’s about this year’s events cause it’s the 30th anniversary of total defence!
This is going to be a LONG post because there IS a lot of exciting things happening.
I tote-ally liked this bag. A lot of others did too because of the pun. Inside was a nifty file of press releases, postcards and a Happy Feet figurine (you’ll see in the later part of this post).
OH and you might be able to get one of these bags too! Details later below, hahaha.
LOOK AT THAT. Wanna win these stuff? Well actually you can see the list below.

WHO TO VOTE?
COME SUPPORT MY TWO GIRL POWAAAH TEAMS. I’ve written about them before here. And their animations are really cool.
VOTE FOR C05 aka The 4 of Us II. Why is there a II? It’s because this was their second time entering the competition but this is the first for them to make it THIS FAR.
VOTE FOR C08 aka Momento Mori. The punny girls who are hyper and are one of the fastest amongst the 10 teams to finish animating.
You can watch it on the voting website and yes, Co5 is all black and white while C08 is all colourful! BAAAM! A GREAT DUO OF A TEAM.
And you can vote for THREE teams in your four chances. I leave it to you, to choose the last because it’s really hard to choose from all of them.
Thus… 3 x 4 = 12 chances to win the items!
ALSO, support ALL the teams because they ALL did work hard.
Have a look see at their animations, they all laboured for 3 weeks non-stop to do it and the least you can do is watch them, yeah?
Voting ends on the 15th! Soooo go ask your relatives to vote (my teams, heh heh) when you’re off to Chinese New Year visiting or as a talking point if you have no idea what to say to them.
Or this can be a romantic thing(???).
Vote before Valentines’ Day and… Ok, yeah it’s romantic because…. YOU PLAYED A PART.
When I saw this programme in the Golibrary booking system, I clicked add to cart because it was the freaking dragon kiln (one of 2? in Singapore) and it’s always been so far from me.
Hence, I had to go since I wanted to go there for quite a long while.
This is the first time I went on an EXCURSION with the library, they chartered a bus for us too. So exciting.
I want to scoot around on this Oxelo town 7 easyfold scooter. I’m saving up my money and all that because I realized I would be able to go to a LOT of places just scootering around.
I could also take it on the MRT and if by an unlucky chance should the trains not work, I could just unfold this and scoot away instead of taking a bridging bus towards non-affected places. It’s small enough to get on a bus with it too so yeah, that’s why I didn’t want to get a foldie since I really, REALLY wander around a lot of places and this would be better to lug around with.
Then it occurred to me, huh, with all the places in Singapore I go to and with all the events, it would be cool if someone actually sponsored this scooter.
It’ll be even cooler if Scoot air actually sponsored it because… DUH SCOOTING ON A SCOOTER? SCOOT?
So Scoot, this is my proposal to you. Instead of busting into your office, I am just writing a post here and it’s up to you to email me if you wanna. Hopefully before 7 February 2014 because I’d be buying it then.
You might be wondering who I am so these next few tweets might give you a little idea on it.
