My KL2017 in pictures

It’s been a while since my last blog post. Not exactly in the mood to write much at the moment, plus I’m falling sick, so here’s hoping pictures can tell most of the story for me instead. If you just want to read the lighter and funnier stuff, scroll down to the section titled “Lighter Moments”….

Integrating the many versions of self

It’s been a while. While work has been hectic the last six weeks, I am beginning to understand the purpose of where I am at this point in my life, and how each experience I have been through has brought me here. Whereas previously on this journey I struggled with fully accepting myself and my…

More than just football on offer

So I had the privilege of having a sneak peek at what’s cooking in Kallang Wave Mall earlier this afternoon. As part of the overall celebrations of the inaugural Singapore Football Week, the mall’s atrium area, as well as OCBC Square and the Sports Hub’s Visitor Centre were given nice makeovers in line with the…

On growth, guilt and escapism

I remember about a year ago during one of my monthly sessions with Lance at Kingsmead, that we broached on the topic of relationships across seasons. Back then I was struggling with a transition between seasons. I had just come off the back of a full year of spiritual highs and consolations. And no, my…

6 things you don’t want to miss in July and August 2017

So we are entering that time of the year where activities and events are approaching thick and fast. While there is plenty of other stuff going on as well, here is my personal pick of six sport and health highlights you do not want to miss out on in the next couple of months, especially…

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

It’s a packed schedule for filming this week, with several major initiatives coming up in the next few months. 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…
