Lombok: Chasing sea turtles, walking beneath waterfalls

Hey, everybody. Can’t believe this is only my second travel blog entry after last year’s maiden Vietnam trip post. If you haven’t read it, you can read that particular post here. Most of my previous posts were all reflections or on filming or work-related, so I’m not exactly the best versed at travel blogging. So…

Redefining influence: Empowering lives through storytelling in sport

I have to admit I was pretty sceptical of influencer marketing at first. Being someone who’s had to work with social marketing agencies and various influencer networks over the years, I’ve always felt it was a mere numbers game and that it is difficult to establish actual authentic meaningful engagement. That beyond short-term successes with…

Hockey 101 series shoot

We rounded off a packed week of filming with the Hockey 101 series shoot at Sengkang Hockey Stadium yesterday. Part of a start-off content support pack that we provide for each of our ActiveSG Academies and Clubs when they first launch, the sport 101 series of feature articles and videos serve as online tutorials for…

Celebrating The Beautiful Game

We’re finally past the mid-week mark! Day two of three full days of filming this week. Another day of filming down, in what is the lead up to the busiest few months of the year for those of us working at Sport Singapore. Ever since adopting a new approach of creative storytelling in our online…

6 weeks to a better you

Today’s shoot in particular features an initiative that really can benefit everyone who is looking to live better and healthier. Anchored by our health and fitness ambassador Samantha Low, this series looks at tackling sixteen common…

On the film set: Singapore Sentosa Adventure Race

Spent the large part of yesterday morning at Sentosa filming our promo video ad for Singapore Sentosa Adventure Race, an event organised in conjunction with Sport Singapore’s partners Sentosa for GetActive! Singapore 2017. The race itself will be held on Saturday, 29 July 2017 (the opening day of GASG2017), with a race route that spans…

Our true worth

A video that was played on Friday night during the session with 1 Peter community has stuck with me over the weekend. Titled “The Wild Goose”, it is part of a series with this particular segment talking specifically about our true worth. The part that struck me the most was a beautiful analogy of each of our lives…

League performance would better benchmark Mou’s United

And so Manchester United marked the end of its 2016-17 campaign with yet another trophy success, completing the only missing piece of the jigsaw in the club’s illustrious history, and adding to its already burgeoning trophy cabinet. Winning the Europa League not only helped United gain automatic qualification into next season’s Champions League, but it also…

Going crazy at Team SportSG Night 2017

This is a belated post, but as they say it’s better late than never. 🙂 To be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect from our company’s Dinner & Dance. Being tied down with sports events and campaign work the last few months, thinking about what to dress up as for the D&D was…

Dropping the act to find ourselves

Let’s not lie to ourselves. We live in a world that opposes authentic living, and one that regularly asks questions of the true value of authenticity. If living authentically was that easy, everyone would be doing it. Yet we constantly see the opposite at work in our daily lives. We work in workplaces that tell us…

We are called to be real, not perfect

I once held the mistaken belief that I had to strive to be the best in everything before I am able to receive love, or be seen as likeable. I bought into the idea that my life must be as flawless as possible – without stain or blemish, in order for those around me to accept me….

Love and freedom

“You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.” – Thich Nhat Hanh In the latest Disney blockbuster ‘Beauty and the Beast’, we glean unique insights into what it really means to love. About what love is, and what it isn’t. Without making this a spoiler, it suffices to say…
