Live it Up Without Lighting Up Global Movement#LIUWLU kicked-off with a smashing dance party bursting with a zest for life on 21 March 2012.
Had one of those crazybusy days at work but still managed to sneak in a nice lunch at Tai Hing with one of my fav milk teas.
It’s iced at the side so it doesn’t lose its gao (thickness) and it never fails to give me some kinda buzz. Mr TimO was great company too.
Later that evening, enroute to the party at scape…caught some gorgeous skies.
Guess God felt like painting with the sun, clouds and rain.
Scape Warehouse was packed out with youths and guests attending the Live It Up Dance Party. The official dance party of the LIWLU Global Movement 2012.
When I got there, ushers passed me my media pass & booklet and escorted me to the vip table where a cosy buffet of food and beverages were lined up.
Crowd was buzzing lights were dimmed. People were laughing at the photowall with instant print outs. Nifty. You wouldn’t have thought it was a smoke-free campaign. Impressed some.
But I guess that’s really the whole point, that we were always meant to live it up and rock it, just without the lit hey.
The night was packed with highlights, a LIVE IT UP Song & Dance, a dance competition, an attempt to set a record for the most no. of Twitter followers w/in 2 hrs and DJ Inquisitive and S.O.F to dance the night away. Thank God for Daniel Ong who could fort the massive line up and oh so naturally engage the crowd.
The Live It Up Song & Dance was a collaboration between a team of smoke-free muzos and local songwriter Patrick Cng. They include Sam Cooper from Pug Jelly, Martin Kong from Carcoal and ShiGGa Shay, an up-and-coming rapper. (the name..I know. Don’t mock) haha. A dance remix of the song was produced with an instructional dance vid choreographed by Zaini Tahir, Asst Director for Artistic Devpt at Repubic Poly. Fun number. Great spirit.
Dejan Tubic one of Hollywood’s top choreographer lent some star power to the night. He’s choreographed for shows including America’s got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance and has over 40million views on his youtube. Won’t be surprised if a huge chunk of the views came from Singapore, seeing how plastered to YouTube we are. 10 teams took to the stage for the finals. Here’s some of our favs!
The ever gorgeous Collete and I:)
A huge range of genres. Some were sexy, some were edgy. I’m not and will never be a bona fide dancer but i dated one before and my girls dance, and yeah I’ve watched alot of recitals/comps and this one wasn’t all too bad at all. The Celine Jessendra troops had a medley of items as well. #KPOP *.*
One word: HIONG.
Then it was the 3 way battle for the final 3 teams! *HOLLERR*
While waiting for the winners..munched on a carrot..I keep havin carrot shots lately. Bunny tendencies.
voyeured interesting hair:
(tuff of blonde curls and blonde+green braids)
And finally the winners!!
3k to the top winner- Fad Fashion and 2k to the runner up. Sweeeeet…
Then it was time for the partaaay with the guest DJss…..
And in true girl fashion, we decided to mess with the photowall!
The pro looking pics from Collette’s super pro camera.
The “trying to be arty and succeeding some” pics from my iphone. hahaha
It isn’t everyday when diverse youth from all over the world unite in celebration of a common cause - advocating a tobacco free lifestyle in all ways youth and all ways loud.
I’ve been actively supporting a smoke-free world for the past 3 years since the Miss Singapore Universe hey days and I reckon I’ll keep this cause for a long time.
I’d like to quote Miss Miles on this:
"Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day will cost approx. $4,000 a year – that can buy me 2 designer bags, or a trip to Europe (why would anyone choose cigarettes over bags or a holiday?!)."
WORDDDD! I’m saving for a trip to Isreal sooo i get the maths for this one.
Left the place with nothing short of a dorky smile…On the way back…D came to pick me!! (SO SWEET)
And as usual we tried to play weird games. This round it was standing for a long time under the bird poop zone at Somerset while the birdies were squawking and pooping their guts out. Stand there and smile…Dude… of course I’ll nail this one…
Until… the poop hit the left and right of me and I felt something wet in my head yo!
While you can’t control bird pooping you can take control of your life.. hahaha
(see what I just did there?)
