My experience at Power 98FM Radio Station!

Hi guys! I was recently invited to Power 98FM for an exclusive preview of the new radio show called "The Ex-Factor" hosted by DJs Jacqui Thibodeaux & Mister Young. I was ecstatic to come down and check out how is it like behind the scenes of becoming a DJ! Power 98FM is also one of my favourite radio stations to listen to when I travel to school or work! It was definitely one in a life time experiences of my life because I have NEVER been to a real radio station before! Thus, I'm so excited that I could drop dead for 5secs! Hahahas!

It was my first time at a radio station and I was kinda nervous! Actually hor, who wouldn't be?

Q: What is Power 98FM? 

Power 98FM is an english radio station established in 1994! It is also Singapore's top lifestyle radio station and part of SAFRA Radio Station playing all kinds of songs with a mixed of lifestyle content. The songs played are from 1990s to today's hits offering best in travel, food, movies, sports and more.

Q: What is The Ex-Factor show all about?

The Ex-Factor is the first radio show of it’s kind in Singapore. Every dirty secret, bad habit, and button to push? They know it, and aren’t afraid to use it. What's interesting, the two DJs were once together as an item but who in the world would be crazy enough to work with your ex-lover HAHAHAHA (even me i'll feel awkward too! ) The show is a brand new segment of the evening drive show! 

DJs Jacqui T. & Mister Young 

Jacqui T. ( Jacqueline Su-Yin Thibodeaux ), you might had seen her before on magazines or commercials becuase she is also best known as the Roxy Girl 2001, New Paper New Face Miss Personality 2006 & also FHM Cover Girl 2011. 

Jacqui T. has also  a series of commercials for McDonalds, computer & electronics products and television commercials for brands like McDonalds, Canon & Nike. She previously hosted 98.7 FM's flagship show ‘Say It With Music' and after that she developed an interest in DJ-ing and begin her passion. 

You can called him "Young" or "Mister Young", okay he looks young to me is a quirky, flippant, or just plain weird… (as described by himself). He is no stranger in live hosting as he has hosted a wide range of live events such as road-shows, press conferences, year end countdowns and even sometimes if you listen carefully you might hear a voice-over of his voice in some TV and radio commercials. He also started out form Mediacorp's 987FM and has 11 years of DJ-ing experience hosting morning showers all the way to graveyard shifts (midnight). Wah this guy must *salute* Hahaha! 

The radio equipments, microphone, computers all looked so high-tech and I know nothing about it except for talking on the microphone! 

Have a secret to tell you guys, I was once a kiddo-DJ in Primary 6 - Secondary 1. There used to be this online radio station that is for the popular game called Habbo. Don't know if you guys heard of the game, but I was recruited as a super young DJ back then and trust me. Content is very important, that's why I think that being a DJ is a tough job and also I actually considered of taking it as a career! Who knows maybe next time! 

I was so lucky and fortunate to be able to record a short radio segment with another blogger, Benita. Okay la, since the show was about Ex-es (past relationships), I was asked several questions about my past relationship experiences. Was kinda nervous and at a point of the time, I almost stoned and said nothing! Never the less, it was a great experience to learn about what is it like to work as a DJ! Something I learnt about them is that you can actually simply start a topic to talk about by just looking at a newspaper article or product/item in order to keep the conversation going and happening. 

Hohoho! I actually uploaded the clip on youtube to let you guys listen to the short segment that was recorded! Go go listen!!! 

I shall conclude my blogpost here! Overall, it was a fun-filled day spent with other bloggers and left with a brief knowledge about live DJ-ing!  Thank you Power 98FM for your invitation! The DJs were super friendly and entertaining making it a pleasant experience!  Do check out and listen to their new show, "The Ex-Factor", Weekdays from 5PM- 8PM!! And no they didn't eat me up in my last photo! Hahahaha! Bye!

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes).

That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -

My experience at Hai Xian Lao 海鲜捞 (Shaw House)

I have always been a huge fan of Hotpot, Korean BBQ and Mookata (Thai-steamboat) restaurants. I used to remember back in my polytechnic days, I would have them every once a week. Hotpot can be pricy for a student/NSF like me. Hence, I would prefer to visit a restaurant that offers buffet style. This is because you can enjoy unlimited servings of food provided if you can finish them. I feel that it usually makes my money more well-spent. Additionally, having steamboat with your friends and family fosters bonding and a good time with your friends. I was recently invited by Hai Xian Lao to try out their hotpot.  Hai Xian Lao  Prior to attending this tasting, I have actually visited their restaurant quite a few times with my friends (non-sponsored). I first got to know HXL from a video that was featured by NOC Food King. Aiken mentioned that the prawn broth was fantastic and full of flavour. Hence, I was curious and went to try it out. Truth to be told, I personally find that HX
