The End Of #CNOS3 - With Great Thanks!



YES! I DID IT!! I came in 2nd Runner Up for this year's Cineleisure Next Online Sensation 3! 
(Macham like a dream come true!!)

It was just like a year ago, I was nagging about my 8th place during #CNOS2 and a year later, I climbed to the 3rd place. I'm really glad that I decided to go for a second try. The story started in January when I told myself that I couldn't join #CNOS3 cos it was crashed with my examinations. (I thought that the date would crashed since I knew the competition would begin around early March.) However, this year the contest was changed to mid March which was immediately after my final papers. I'm was pleading with excitement thus I decided to join this contest together with my buddy Noelle! We're both returning contestants and decided to give another shot to run for the title!


Noelle was the First Runner Up for the contest! I was really happy for her when the host announced her name! She sure put in a lot of effort into her work and I'm glad that she totally deserves it! If you didn't know, Noelle was 4th place last year which was so close to the 3rd! I'm glad that we're both given a chance to shine this year and I was able to work with her for the first challenge! If you don't recall see this video! (This will 100% confirm leave you laughing non-stop XD)



We emerged came in first for challenge 1!! I'm really glad that all the filming and recording all paid off! I can bet that we made almost all the viewers laughing ridiculously after watching the video! (The video above). It was kinda my first time dressed as a nerd as we walk about Orchard Road. Well, like they always say #YOLO!! You only live once, if you don't try, you won't know!


After ransacking my closet for 1 hour, I manage to find the perfect outfit for the finals! I decided to go denims because you will never go wrong with it! Initially my denim jacket was supposed to be a lighter blue one but it was too oversized for me and I asked opinions from my friends whether the one i'm wearing (on top) suits me or the lighter blue one. I found out that if your jacket is too huge and oversized, it makes you look larger in size! 

The second runner up prize was presented by Sheila Mandy, Shenny Yang (Overnight Sensation of #CNOS2) and also the management of Cathay Organization. 


I'm really glad that I have so many supportive friends by my side although they were not able to attend the finals but their thoughts still counts! I really never thought that I would win something but these are one of those moments in my life that I ever walked away with a large prize!  Makes a new milestone in my life XD! It was totally unexpected but I'm glad that all my efforts paid off.

I would like to thank my lovely team members for each individual challenge:

Challenge 1: 
Noelle  & Vivian  


Challenge 2:
Suan Yee & Luna

Challenge 3:
Regine & Natalie

MOST THOUGHTFUL PERSON GOES TO:

I'm really glad that my best buddy was able to come and help me for Challenge 3 because I had a shortage of a team member and I needed help for the photo booth. Gabriel was supposed to prepare for his enlistment as his about to enter the Navy soon but he took out the time to come and help me instead of spending time with his family and friends! I'm really glad and touched that I have such a great friend who is always very supportive and willing to help me when I need help. He is probably annoyed now because I kept on thanking him non-stop! Can't blame me ok! He is an avid photographer and I must praise his passion in taking photos! THANK YOU GABRIEL! 




I will strive to become a better food and lifestyle blogger in terms of taking better photos and also writing comprehensive content! I'm really thankful for all the opportunities and I know this is just the beginning, there are much more to come. Thank you for everyone's support throughout these 2 years. I won't give up this passion as I'm gonna make my way through no matter how hard it is.

Lastly, Praise God!

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt. You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme. 

Ambience: 7.5/10 
Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme. 
Tropical Smoothies 
(Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20 
I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-balance and not too sweet.
