Rolling back the years in Koh Samui

“Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.” – Anonymous And then there were three. Our usual group, which started off with five brothers making its first overseas trip to Bintan in 2007, has dwindled over time – four made the trip to Phuket in June 2014, and this time only…

Filming of Singapore Tennis Festival Online Commercial

I’m still feeling the after effects of some pretty intense filming for the Singapore Tennis Festival over the last two days. More specifically I can’t really feel my arms and legs, but that was probably because we had a shortage of manpower to move some pretty heavy equipment across film locations. LOL. The weather over…

Built for resilience

*The views and opinions expressed in this post are purely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of Sport Singapore. I reckon it’s always a great idea to start off each day practising gratitude. So for me, amidst what has been an insane work schedule the past three…

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”….

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…

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…

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…

5 unforgettable Sin Ting moments

Today we bade farewell to our brother ST. It’s been an incredible three and a half years with you here in our midst at Sport Singapore my brother.  Here we recall some classic moments with our resident joker and the youngest brother of #TUT. 1. The Putravita In July 2015 after the 28th SEA Games…

12 highlights of my Vietnam trip

And so my much anticipated trip has finally come to an end. It was a much needed respite after a crazy few months at work, and this short week in the beautiful country up north has been one that was well spent, bringing about a fair share of pleasant surprises. Not every thing went according to plan…

The day I became a swimming instructor

I never thought I’d see the day I became a swimming instructor, but it happened under the least expected of circumstances. ActiveSG needed a pair of host presenters to help them deliver their lines for the SwimSafer programme, done in partnership with sponsors Manulife, in what was a 7 part web video series. The programme…

Filming of Tennis 101 series

Today marked the start of our work for the hectic month of October with a very heavy tennis flavour. Our date with Singapore’s number one female tennis player Stefanie Tan did not come easy. Singapore’s tennis high flyer has to contend with a series of back-to-back overseas competitions, and as a result her availability for…

United disappoint again, Malaysia Open surprise

A profligate Man Utd were held at home 1-1 by lowly Stoke City earlier this evening, dropping points yet again in a story that has become far too familiar for frustrated United fans. For all the talk of returning as title challengers this year, and the amount of cash splashed this summer to back that claim,…
