april blog giveaway


I guess by now, most of you would have seen the video entitled, “World’s Toughest Job” but if you haven’t, you can check it out here on our blog.

Mother’s Day is just round the corner and this year, it falls on 11 May 2014 [Sunday]. As I was preparing this blog post, I was just thinking aloud about how I should begin writing this blog post and I guess it is pretty apt for me to blatantly say that we should treasure and cherish our mum not just on Mother’s Day but every single day of our lives.

Amidst the hectic schedules of our daily lives, we sometimes forget to show appreciation and gratitude to the most important woman in our life and Mother’s Day does provide a much-needed annual reminder to do just that.

In collaboration with BRAND’S Singapore, we will like to help you nourish the ties that matter by giving your mother the gift of health. Hence, we are happy to giveaway 2 packs of 6 BRAND’s Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar that will not only boost your mother’s immunity but also provide all the tender loving care, nourishment, and rejuvenation that she needs.

On a separate note, ever since we started our Blog in December 2011, we have seen an increase in the number of visitors and pageviews on our Blog and we are extremely humbled by the statistics. If we compare our current year’s statistics to the previous year’s statistics, we are generally doing just fine but it is still not up to our expectations because we feel that there are so much things that we could have done better. Hence, we are currently doing a thorough review of our Blog and we have plans in the pipelines to carry out some BIG changes that we hope will bless YOU [our readers].

As the plans are underway, we won’t be revealing them anytime soon but we really hope that this would be the next breakthrough that we’re hoping for. Meanwhile, you probably might be able to note the change in our blogging/writing style and over the next few weeks and months, you might see the bigger changes eased in.

Hence, do stay tuned to us and should you have any thing that you wish to let us know, do feel free to leave us your comments or drop us an email at admin@awinsomelife.org

Last Thursday, we were invited to an exclusive Ice-Cream Party at the Ben & Jerry’s Dempsey Scoop Shop and we totally enjoyed ourselves. The awesome people from Ben & Jerry’s hosted us with so much fuzzy warmth and love that it was a night down memory lane for both Baby and I.

During the Ice-Cream Party, there were games being played and in one of the games, participants were blind-folded and they have to guess the flavour of the Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream. Definitely not easy but certainly a doable task for a fan of Ben & Jerry’s!

When Baby and I started dating more than 2 years ago, our favourite hangout spot was the Ben & Jerry’s Heeren Scoop Shop. Indulging in Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream then was a weekly affair. When Heeren underwent a major renovation, our love for Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream never once dwindled. In fact, all thanks to the generous promotions that NTUC Fairprice occasionally has, we often buy two pints of Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream to indulge at home while watching our favourite dramas or movies.

Our two favourite Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream flavours are Chunky Monkey and Triple Caramel Chunk. Of course, there are also other flavours such as the Maple Tree Hugger and the Peanut Butter Cup that we fancy a lot.

Apart from making your mouths and bellies happy on Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day, we also hope that you will join Ben & Jerry’s in doing some good for the community by raising funds for Project Happy Feet [Ben & Jerry’s fairness partner for Free Cone Day 2013]. Project Happy Feet is a Singapore-based not-for-profit organisation set up to empower the lives of underprivileged youths and children in Singapore and developing countries. It supports education-related initiatives and programmes through fund-raising that can positively impact them or their families.

To further aide Ben & Jerry’s in this cause, the CLEO editorial team will be adopting a Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop at VivoCity. The first 400 Ben & Jerry’s fans in line at the CLEO adopted scoop shop need not worry about the long queues as they will each receive a copy of CLEO’s April issue! To add fudge to your ice cream, CLEO will be throwing in a complimentary three-month digital subscription of CLEO magazine for the first 200 kind fans who donates more than $30 to Project Happy Feet. Now, that’s something to look forward to if you’re heading to Ben & Jerry’s VivoCity Scoop Shop on Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day!
