If you don’t already know, Nuffnang’s parent company, Netccentric celebrated our 10th anniversary on 30 August with a bang! To commemorate this momentous occasion, here are our top five favourite things we enjoyed at the party and we hope it will bring the celebration to you as well.

  1. Slow-mo videos at the photo/video booth!

Pictures are the best way to immortalize precious memories and what better way to do it than the ever popular photo booths!

20160830_192152_791

What made the photo booth at Netccentric’s 10th anniversary celebration so unique this time is that on top of what we are familiar with – the fun shots, props and the memorabilia we get to bring home, we also got to be involved in a slow motion video! All our confetti throwing, poppers popping moments were captured on video that we can look back on in time to come.

It was definitely more fun than simply snapping a photograph as we got to interact even more with each other when we knew that the camera were rolling! A new but equally merry way to snap pictures and even a video at photo booths!

  1. Thoughtful goodie bags

The theme of our celebrations surrounds #welivesocial. Apt, as Netccentric is a social media advertising agency and our goodie bags matched the theme perfectly.   Each guest – staff, clients and talents alike walked home armed with all the necessary tools to help us increase our social media savviness in the thoughtfully packed goodie bag!

Check out what we had in this cool stop motion video!

  • 2017 desk calendar

Following a water colour and calligraphy theme, the 2017 Netccentric table calendar is not only aesthetically pleasing but also contains a column for your monthly goals!

  • Macro and fish eye lens with a dare for guests to take a selfie with a stranger

Following the #welivesocial theme, we dared guests to make use of the lens for a selfie moment and to break the ice with each other ;)

  • New #welivesocial Dayre stickers

Our favourite in the goodie bags are none other than the limited edition #welivesocial Dayre stickers! Now, we can use them both online and offline for situations that are beyond any words.

  • Leather bind

A chic leather bind to keep your earphones tangle free. Definitely a must have for everyone because we know how frustrating it is to have our earphones tangle up in our bags!

  • An array of food vouchers courtesy of Creative Eateries

Last but not least, to fill our tummies even after the event are these food vouchers from Creative Eateries. Ranging from Bangkok Jam to Freemantle Seafood Market, we are looking forward to eat to our fill!

  1. Yummy food

The cocktail dinner of the night was proudly brought to us by Creative Eateries as well. The menu included grilled scallop, mini burgers and aglio olio. Bite sized food not only tasted delicious but also allowed us to continue mingling with guests!

We always have space in our tummy for desserts; baked lovingly by our Blogger-preneur Jessica Loh (Shiberty) from Shiberty Bakes. We were treated to a whole range of Jessica’s specialties that included colourful macarons that not only tasted great, but looked so aesthetically pleasing as well! Definitely made us and our cameras happy that night.

Of course, the night is not complete without some alcohol and we were honored to have Chang’s Beer. There is no better beer to have a jolly good time with our guests!

It was a hearty evening with good food, sweet treats and a cheeky pint of beer!

  1. Music and entertainment

It is not a party without music! This year we are pleased to have with us 53A to serenade us with pop songs that we could sing along with. It was most relevant for us to have 53A that evening as they were also the band who sang this year’s National Day theme song Tomorrow’s Here Today, singing their hopes and dreams for the next fifty years for Singapore. As the Netccentric family came together to commemorate our milestone and also to look forward to our next milestone as well!

Accompanying us through the night was our host, Cordelia, who engaged with guests and made the evening memorable for all of us. We certainly enjoyed having Cordelia with us as well!

  1. Gathering as one big family!

The Netccentric 10th anniversary party was an occasion to thank everyone who has contributed to our success. It is definitely a good time to celebrate our accomplishments, learn from past mistakes and be forward looking!

It was heartwarming to see talents from Nuffnang, Churp Churp and Dayre interacting and having fun with each other, clients and staff from different departments bonding well and enjoying the night together.

Thank you to everyone who has played an important role and helping Netccentric to get to where we are today!

Nuffnang is celebrating our 8th birthday and to start the ball rolling here are 8 fun facts about our company:

  1. Nuffies refer to the staff working behind the scenes, while Nuffnangers refer to our bloggers. Don’t mix them up!
  2. Nuffnang is actually a Jaifakan word that means ‘Real Good or Real Cool’
  3. Nuffnang.my was our first website launched on 27th February 2007.
  4. The launch time was 2.30 a.m because a fortune teller had told Ming that it was the ‘most prosperous’ time to launch Nuffnang.
  5. Our first birthday bash was known as the Pajama Party.
  6. Nuffnang has been recognized in Singapore’s Book of Records as ‘Singapore’s First Blog Advertising Community.’
  7. Timothy and Ming first met across a Pussycat Dolls concert.
  8. When Nuffnang first started, our founders did not even know what an insertion order was. (An Insertion order is a essentially a document that specifics the dates and scope of a media buy, used in print, online and broadcast media.)

(Here’s a heads up: If you are interested in finding out more about our very cool backstory, drop by our official dayre account to find out more for yourself!)

As with the past 6 years, we celebrated Nuffnang’s birthday on 27th February. Call it superstition or sentiment, but we think some traditions, like this, should not be broken! Because we are celebrating our 7th birthday (anniversary sounds too formal and boring for awesome people like us), the teams from all the Nuffnang offices in the region unanimously came up with the theme of 007 the moment we were tasked to start planning for the big day.

The Nuffies got to work brighter and earlier than usual all dressed up to the nines, and headed to Fullhouse Signature Singapore to prepare. Preparations included:

1. Photo-taking… lots of photo-taking

Slide2Slide7 Slide10

2. Setting up the venue

Slide15

3. Goodie bag packing

We made sure our bloggers got to walk away looking even better than they arrived with make up products from Maybelline and travel-sized skincare products from Philosphy.

And because we know that bloggers enjoy taking photos more than anything else (it’s all about capturing happy moments especially birthdays!), a photobooth was set up by La Novella Studio, complete with Instagram print outs whenever someone uploads a photo with the hashtag #NuffnangIs007.

Slide3 Slide4 Slide5

If you were to ask us, we think that no event is complete without some awesome music so luckily for us and the local music fanatics amongst us,  Diya and Carrie (also known as 插班生 The Freshman) made an appearance at the event and kicked start it with an eclectic line-up of music, consisting of their own songs and covers!

Slide8

After their performance, Boss Ming also gave a touching speech which he claimed he didn’t prepare for, but we were all left touched and inspired after his speech.

To quote the man, “What better purpose is there than to help ordinary people who want to be extraordinary succeed? I guess that is what Nuffnang stands for. We are a collective for the collective. We stand united as a group of people who truly want to help people like ourselves make it in life. Make a difference. Impact and influence. It’s more than the money. And for any blogger reading this I hope they remember it.”

And may we always remember what the Nuffies spirit is all about – “Its about the friendships, the loyalties, the journey, the lows more than the highs, the late nights, and early mornings. Its about u and its about me. Its about passing that forward. About passing it on. No matter which Nuffnang office I go to. I always leave with a feeling of warmth inside me. The feeling of warmth when they dont stop talking about work to one another even when on a dining table. The feeling of warmth when they walk with each other to the train station. The feeling of warmth when they meet up with each other on the weekends. The feeling of warmth when they pitch in to help one another.”

Slide6

You can read the extended version of his speech on this very touching Dayre post he wrote after the party.

We are not very sure making us well up with tears is a good idea especially since we had some activities planned for the night, but other than ensuring that the bloggers are all fed, we also had iDarts Senso specially bring down one of their dart booths to bring out the secret agents in us.

Slide14

Throughout the night a number of bloggers came up to us to ask us what the boxy looking thing at the side of the stage was, and when the auspicious hour came, we pushed this up on stage and tadaaaahhhh……

Slide9 Slide12

It IS a birthday cake! This 3-tier fully-customised cake in 3 different flavours (Chocolate Truffle, Pure Addiction and Black Forest) was beautifully crafted by the skilled hands of the bakers (we think they should be called artists!) of Emicakes.

We even had a Pseudo Nuffnang Blog Awards since many bloggers have been asking about the NAPBAS. Here are the winners and their well-deserved trophies and certificates.

Not forgetting these two bloggers who couldn’t make it to the event:

We also sprung a little surprise on Boss Ming and gave him an award for being one of the coolest bosses around!

Slide11

Special shout-out to one of the biggest stars of the night who was dressed so close to the theme we couldn’t help but present her a special impromptu Best Dressed (or not) Award!

Slide17

Yes, this is Juli, the beauty (well, the other kind of beauty that day) and brains behind beauty blog Bunbunmakeuptips dressed up as a bandit, complete with facial stubble.

Slide13

The team would like to take this chance to thank the bloggers and Nuffnangers who have stuck by us the past 7 years as we work towards a bigger and better 8th year that’s coming up. Like what Boss Ming said, Nuffnang is not only about the Nuffies, but it is about you, the Nuffnangers too!

Slide18

Thank you for the your support, and the community team would love to meet each and every one of you (yes, all 60,000 of you!) at future events!

We celebrated Nuffnang’s 6th Birthday on 27th February! The Nuffies went to the Ballymoons in the afternoon to prepare for the night! As the theme was “Sixties”, each and every one of us was trying to come up with an outfit that will best suit the theme! Here’s a picture of our cozy venue!

The Nuffies were busy preparing the door gifts thanks to The Body Shop!

Great mille crepe from Humble Beginnings for our guests!

It was soon time for our fun-filled night to begin! Huiwen and Yuen Yee gave an opening speech to thank our guests for taking time off to celebrate Nuffnang’s Birthday! It was quite a touching moment as both of them talked about the past, present and future of Nuffnang! It was an exciting journey and will continue to be in the years to come! :)

Thankfully, we had awesome food, performances and activities lined up for that night too! Shall let the pictures do the talking!

(Special thanks to White Ribbon Live Music)

(Thank you Flor Pattisserie for the delicious personalized Strawberry Shortcake)

Our team also came up with a mini skit to imitate some bloggers! Winners got a watch sponsored by Aries Gold!
Here are some examples!

What do you think of their imitations?

Everyone was cracked up by the hilarious imitations by the emcees! As Nuffnang is a close-knitted blogging community, we thought that it would be good to give some form of recognition to various bloggers for their cute personalities! We designed and did a mini prize presentation too!


Here are some groups shots taken that night!

All in all, we hope that everyone enjoyed that night as much as we did! Nuffnang will strive and continue to grow! Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you all at future Nuffnang events!

Thank you Hello Stranger for sponsoring our Photobooth!
You can go to: Nuffnang’s Photos to download high res photos for the night!
