SINGAPORE DANCE DELIGHT VOL. 2 - Groove People, Groove!


Proudly presented by F&N Sparkling Drinks and produced by O School, Singapore Dance Delight is one of the rare recent events that has galvanized youth from all walks of life to come together in celebration of dance and being young.

It's all about:
Passion, for doing something you love
Love, towards doing something you excel in
Confidence, to bring out the best of you
Trust, that your team will walk hand-in-hand with you
Encouragement, from supportive crowds like YOU!

On 26th February 2011, over 1000+ youths came down to *SCAPE! This year, a total of 46teams registered for Singapore Dance Delight Vol. 2, doubled the number of crews competing last year(28 teams). Even dancers from our neighbouring countries: the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia came and took part in this extravagant event!

I'm really proud because Singapore is the only South East Asian country to host Dance Delight. Last year’s competition set the bar really high so this year, expect even greater choreography, tighter routines & more outrageous outfits!

This video was done by Yongwei who attended last year's Singapore Dance Delights (Remember that I mention it's going to get bigger and better THIS year? I can't wait!)

Have you ever heard of this cliche, 台上三分钟,台下十年功(For every 3 minutes you perform on stage, 10 years of hard work have been put in from behind the scenes). Their passion for street dance was witnessed by all who came down especially to *Scape to support their idols, friends and family!

Among these 1000+ people who came, Yongwei managed to capture and record those awe-inspiring moments at the Singapore Dance Delight Vol.02 Preliminary rounds! Thank You,Yongwei once again!

Here are the 20 teams chosen to compete in the finals:
(not in any particular order)

Szeping, a popular photography blogger, was chosen to fly to Japan with the team to witness the entire learning journey. Read all about it here.

Mint's room exposed

I've not blogged about my new room yet ever since I moved back to my house in November last year.

There are really two special corners in my room which I'd like to introduce to you. Just so you know, I'm sleeping in the same room as my mum in the master bedroom. Some people love to have the entire room to themselves but as for me, I love company! In the nights, Mom and I will gossip and gossip until we both fell asleep. Here's my section of our room:


Bubble was taking his nap when I took this photograph.
*Kpo, go back to sleep.*


I've just changed the bedsheets with my little helper's assistance! Bubble simply loves to help with the household chores whenever my mum and I are tidying up our room. He never like staying in his cage.



That's Bubble, quality-checking and making sure that my bedsheets are really dirty before I put them in the laundry bag.

Two days spent on re-arranging my two favourite corners was simply fulfilling! I'd admire my collections when I'm down and then I will feel so much better!

Mint's favourite corner #1: My Ultimate Stitch collection corner:


Contributed mostly by Meibao, Stitch is my favourite disney cartoon character. Lilo and Stitch is a touching animated movie which tells us about the precious values of friendship & kinship.

Mint's Favourite Corner #2: My photo collage corner


And this area is expanding overtime! All the sweetest moments captured and printed out. It's just above my bed, so that I can lie down anytime to admire it anytime I want to.

Next is about this noise pollution that has been going on for more than 2 weeks outside my window. I'm getting really frustrated about it:


They are building a shelter for cars; in case of rain.


At least, the project is almost done now because they finally drove a big crane into the carpark and attempt to lift up the roof of the shelter to make its pillars on all 4 corners. The language that the workers spoke sounded like Alien language to me and LOUD. Not only that, they would laugh so loudly that the laugher would wake me up every morning at 8.30am sharp- as if it's my natural alarm clock.

the 'beep beep beep' got Bubble really frustrated that he's been doing some weird action increasingly, watch this video(pay attention to the noise in the background):

The sawing, drilling, grinding of metal and shouting of instructions between the workers... Fortunately it's going to be ready soon! I've been wanting this shelter for a long long time! During the time when I was moving house, I was forever drenched in the rain as I transferred my luggages and bags from the car to the void deck. I don't have to be drenched anymore! Hurray!





Oh come on, get it over and done with. I want to sleep in peace!

Nuffnang Whisper Pampering Night

I was totally spoilt like a princess the other night at Oosh!


Ladies, please scream. This is for you!

I was at Nuffnang's Whisper Pampering Night Event. Thank you Thiang darling for this most pampering invitation!



Oosh was really spacious!


In addition to that, there were unlimited massage sessions,



Express manicures,





Paraffin wax, which is NOT anything like Brazilian wax which I had thought initially!
You soak your hands into luke-warm wax which you leave on your hands for about 15minutes covered with mittens. It is said to really moistens your hands and to clear dead cells!






My hands feels so young again!

There was a special appearance by Paige Chua, a mediacorp actress, who played games and mingle around with us for photo-taking sessions and to have up-close conversations with us.


We played this Bingo game where Paige Chua would read to us information about Whisper's new sanitary products and the players(that's us!) had to circle the words heard from the content.



There're also games and food!

We played 'Spot The Difference' as our ice-breaker game. Spot 16 differences and win a prize! Our group won! *What to do, we have sharp eyes, heh-heh*




Help yourselves with the yummy food and cute miniature desserts!




I was with Thiang but eyeing more on the food than the many pretty babes who surrounded me that night. *ops*



This gadget here is adorably awesome- the ring light!
It belongs to Valerie, and it can amazingly make all the pimples, blemishes and acne on your face vanish in pictures without the use of photoshop!


Here's Valerie(right), the owner of this amazing gadget!



And we did like 101 shoots with this baby!


Did i tell you I met Clare at the event too?
Love you, my Buttercup!



I took a picture with Elise and Thiang too! Pardon me because balloons really freak me out! Amazingly it turned out to be another awesome shoot!


Thiang and I cam-whored while waiting for our turns to do the paraffin wax and massage.




I ran down onto the stage still with my mittens on while doing my paraffin wax in order to get this shot taken: (cute or not? =p)


Every single shot turns out so beautifully, like of those photoshoot pictures.

After that Paige joined in the photo-taking fun!
Why is she so tall and her face so small!


We get to keep a hard copy each as Nuffnang got the photos printed out with Paige's signature at the back!


As Paige made her leave, she was presented with a bouquet of gorgeous lilies, which coincidentally matched her dress. That's Huiwen on her right.


Girls who were present at Nuffnang's Whisper Pampering Night were given a goodie bag each which comprises of the new whisper overnight sanitary pads!



I actually started using it last night. Slept my way from 2am until late morning without having to wake up for toilet. (Ladies you'll know what I mean when your great grand-aunt is here)

Once again, thank you Thiang for inviting me to go to this pampering night with you.
Here's a peck on your cheek for you!
