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!


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!

If you want to see more of what went down at Netccentric’s 10th Aniiversary celebrations, head on over to or to join in the fun (online)! ;)

It was our nation’s 51st birthday on 9 August and we hoped that you have had an enjoyable celebration with your loved ones!

Now that NDP 2016 has come to an end, we hope that you are still busking in the celebratory spirit of the nation so let’s take a few minutes to reminisce those moments on what we loved and what we wished we had for this year’s NDP :)

  1. NDP Fun Packs

NDP Image 1


To those who have been to previous NDP shows, we all know that we have to queue to collect our NDP fun packs. Even though the highly anticipated goodie bag is worth it, the dreaded wait in the humid weather does dampen our moods slightly! This year however, the NDP fun packs were placed on every seat, making it so much more convenient for spectators. Thank you NDP for the thoughtful gesture!

We must also mention that the design of the fun pack is fuss free, lightweight, waterproof (new beach bag that can keep my belongings dry!) and versatile (can be used as a sling or haversack) in the colours of our national flag.

Everyone was given a LED wrist brand in the fun pack which is synchronized to the music and light displays during each performing act, increasing the interactivity and participation of the audience.

With the many different modes and colours, we loved how it was a beautiful sea of light with a message put across to the citizens of Singapore – that we are One people, One nation.

2. National Stadium

NDP Image 2


Believe it or not, it has been a good 10 years since National Day was held at the National Stadium! This year, we’re finally back at the new National Stadium, a larger space which is able to accommodate 30,000 more seats than the floating platform. This also means that more Singaporeans were able to join in the fun and celebrations!

The cutting edge technology of National Stadium’s retractable roof surely signifies how far Singapore has come in these 51 years in the field of technological advancement.

3. Fireworks

NDP Image 3


Did you know? This year’s fireworks display at the National Stadium was the largest scale of indoor fireworks! If you remember last year’s Southeast Asian Games, the indoor fireworks at this year’s NDP is actually five times larger in scale! WOW!

Those who did not manage to grab tickets to attend the NDP, we hope you didn’t miss the fireworks display that was set outdoors, over the Kallang Basin!. No NDP is complete without fireworks and we were in for a treat with an impressive and magnificent display of fireworks, both indoors and outdoor!

4. 3D Projections

NDP Image 4

The use of 3D projections for this year’s NDP provided a refreshing experience to the crowd as it was something out of the ordinary NDP acts from the previous years.

Tying in with Singapore’s vision of being a smart city, the 3D projections played a big bulk in the narration of Badang and the Singapore story. This not only greatly helped audiences follow the storyline of the show but also visualize how Singapore would be leading up to SG 100!

5. Kallang Wave

NDP Image 5


How can we forget about the Kallang Wave? Since this year’s NDP was held at the National Stadium, it was more than heartwarming to be able to be part of the Kallang Wave after 10 years!

What better way to celebrate our nation pride than to do the Kallang Wave during the nation’s 51st birthday!

6. An Inclusive Singapore

NDP Image 6

A heartening segment of this year’s NDP was to bring out the importance of inclusiveness in Singapore. A nation is only as strong as its weakest link and as Singapore progresses, it is also crucial for us to unite as a country that does not leave anyone behind.

This year’s inaugural introduction of a song singing segment saw both audience and performers singing our National Day favorites in unison. Sweetheart, Neoh Yew Kim from the Singapore Association for the Deaf performed along with 150 volunteer with special needs.

It was definitely a joyous occasion to see the whole stadium in hearty grins, singing and signing along.

Of course with a brand new venue, there would be things that we miss from previous National Day Parades!

Extravagant outdoor fireworks!

NDP Image 7


Unfortunately, due to the stadium’s design, the audience had restricted view for the array of outdoor fireworks display. As one of the highlight of the NDP, it is understandable that many may be disappointed with the limited view of fireworks.

However, with the grand indoor fireworks addition to this year’s parade, I am sure that the audience still appreciated the firework display to usher in our country’s 51st birthday!

We miss you – Red Lions, Aerial Show and Mobile Column

NDP Image 8


The annual Red Lions parachute display, also a highlight at every year’s NDP, was sadly not part of this year’s NDP due to safety reasons. Admittedly, we love to watch the Red Lions parachute performance as they take their jump from above! We definitely miss this exciting parachute display and hope that in the coming year, they would continue to be a part of the NDP tradition!

NDP Image 9


Another yearly tradition and one of the most exciting segments of the parade, we’re missing the loud thunderous roars and magnificent showcase of the Singapore aircrafts jetting across our sunny sky.

NDP Image 10Source

You may or may not have noticed that the mobile column segment was also not a part of this year’s NDP. While there was no military vehicles that showcased our military might this year, there were still many other refreshing new elements in the show that we thoroughly enjoyed!

More singing!

NDP Image 12


Some felt that the singing segment could have been longer! After all, it’s only once in a year where Singaporeans get to sing national day songs with gusto! Our hearts are always warmed by the lyrics of the songs as it speaks about the love we have for our country and people.

Nevertheless, this year’s NDP theme song “Tomorrow’s Here Today” by 53A sings of our hope and dreams in the coming fifty years as our nation tackles new challenges and celebrate our victories together. The pop song is youthful, forward looking and upbeat; we can’t help but sing along with glee when we hear and sing along to the song!

As the song says, “Take a leap and you will fly, With all the wishes that you own, Make your dreams light up the sky, Home is where you’re not alone” we encourage all Singaporeans to live their dreams courageously!

All in all, even though there were some segments that were excluded in this year’s NDP, new additions such as the indoor fireworks, 3D projections, and the use of drones provided a new and different experience for us this National Day.

With this year’s NDP message “Building our Singapore of tomorrow”, it is the first show of the next fifty years as we march together as one united nation!

Lastly, let’s be grateful and recognize the efforts of the organizing committee and everyone who had played a part in making this year’s NDP a successful one :)

We are also glad that we were once again a Major Sponsor in this year’s NDP 2016, supporting them on the online front. You can also check out #NetccentricxNDP2016 for more coverage!

Until next year!

Joyce (aka joycesayshello)

1. Instagram – Instagram is my most used app on my phone after WhatsApp! It is also the app which I use right before I sleep at night and right after I wake up in the mornings. It’s almost an addiction. One of my favourite things to do when bored is scrolling through my following feed because the photos are so lovely to look at!

2. Dayre – Because it is so awesome to be able to update about my day on-the-go and be able to share random/interesting findings. Plus, it is a really the best blogging platform because the community is so positive and encouraging.

Just last month, we were snorkeling with giant clams and soaking up the heat in Davao City with 8 of our Bloggeratis, exploring the eco-adventure side of Philippines.


Our squad onboard the trip – Mongchin, Juli, Clara, Limaran, Shenny, Keline, Charlene and Jason – will be sharing their traventure (travel + adventure) over the next few days, so be sure to stay tuned for more on each of their blogs.

As for us, we will be sharing the things you might not know about Cebu Pacific and Davao City, so read on!

  1. Be sure not to miss out on the quizzes onboard Cebu Pacific!

Did you know, Cebu Pacific is Philippines’ largest airline that entered the aviation industry in March 1996 and pioneered the “low fare, great value” strategy?

We thoroughly enjoyed our flight on Cebu Pacific Air! We love how the airline embraces the Filipino’s culture of fun through their tongue-in-cheek advertisements, their interesting in-flight games (yes, more about that in a bit) and their pre-flight safety demo – dances that easily capture the attention of everyone on board.

Have you seen their punny advertisements?

Capture(Image: Cebu Pacific Air)

The in-flight games are random quizzes that the crew conducts after the take-off. The questions are usually simple trivia related to Philippines or the airline (e.g. how many emergency exits does this aircraft have?), or sing along contests.

These contests are usually held on international and domestic flights (with the exception of late night flights), so be sure to catch out the quizzes to stand a chance to win exclusive CEB merchandises. It’s always nice to join in the fun to minimize any flight jitters you have!

Photo 18-4-16, 02 20 34

Our bloggerati bloggers together with the friendliest crews and the hospitable pilots that flew with us.

We even had the opportunity to take small peek into the cockpit, which was an eye-opener!

CEB currently flies to 5 direct Philippines destinations from Singapore including Manila, Clark, Cebu, Iloilo and Davao.

Cebu Pacific Air flies from Singapore to the eco-adventure capital of Davao thrice weekly. Lowest year-round fares start from SGD 182. For bookings and promos, check HERE or call +65-315-80808.

2. Designated smoking corners

As a city with strong focus on eco-tourism, Davao prides itself in keeping the city a clean and eco-friendly place by limiting the smoking areas to small designated smoking areas outside public spaces.

Sometimes these small areas are cordoned off using bamboo sticks and ropes, which was an interesting sight indeed.

Waiting and smoking area

A common question asked is why is such an extreme measure taken to prevent smoking? The anti-smoking ordinance was made, to protect public health and ensure that clean air is provided for the citizens of Davao.

Their studies show that many Filipinos have been affected by health problems caused by tobacco, and this number can be decreased by an immediate action of reducing smoking areas.

3. The paradise is VERY AFFORDABLE land & sea activities – 2 days of fun for under $100!

If you’re on a budget but still want to have a go with land & sea activities, look no further! We had so much fun overcoming our fears up in the air as well as deep in the sea in Davao, all at a very affordable price.

Here are some activities you can consider when you’re there:

a) Eden Nature Park

Eden Nature Park is a place for one to enjoy the flora & fauna in the Philippines – butterfly garden, flower garden and spice garden. But the highlight for us was the sky activities they offer – think sky cycling, ziplining and sky swing!

IMG_9542 IMG_0054-2IMG_9956IMG_0129IMG_0158

Eden Nature Park – prices per pax

Guided shuttle tour- PHP 120

Sky Rider- PHP 150

Sky Cycle- PHP 200

Total “damage”: PHP 470 (approx SGD 14!)

Everyone has their individual fears – of heights or water – and this trip enabled us to set our personal challenges and goals through overcoming our fears.

You too can challenge yourself and we guarantee you’ll not regret the sky experience at Eden!

b) “Taklobo” Giant Clams Tour

After our exhilarating sky activities, we had a go with the sea activities.

Home to the marine life, the Giant Clam Sanctuary on Samal Island is an ongoing conservation Eco-Tourism Project which aims to promote biodiversity preservation, education, tourism & livelihood.





“Taklobo” Giant Clams Tour – prices per pax

Entrance fee- PHP 100

Rental of snorkel gear- PHP 100

Rental of rash guard- PHP 100

Boat rental (up to 12 guests)- PHP 500

Total “damage”: PHP 360 (approx SGD 11!)

It’s a view not to be missed ;)

c) Maxima Aquafun & Canopy Tours

If you’re up for something more exciting, how does a 40m slide into the water sound? Yes you heard it right, the adrenaline rush down the 40m giant slide at Maxima Aquafun is certainly not for the faint-hearted!

IMG_0901 IMG_0917 IMG_1040

Maxima Aquafun & Canopy Tours

Day tour (Adults)- PHP 300

Day tour (Kids)- PHP 200

*includes lifebelt, tram ride, unlimited use of waterslide, water blob, jumping board and canopy walk on weekends

Total “damage”: PHP 300 (approx SGD 9!)

d) Davao Wildwater Adventure

Our last adventure of the trip was white water rafting along the Davao River – a 13 kilometres journey of being tossed around in the raft at rapids and swimming in the calm river.


Words can’t explain how amazing the experience was.



Midway through the rafting route, with the majestic sight of Mother Nature before us, we stopped over
at a pit stop for lunch and enjoyed the peace & serenity it brought us.

Davao Wildwater Adventure

Package rate of PHP 1700 per pax (minimum of 5 per group)

*includes transportation (From Crocodile Park to Rafting Area and back), lunch and refreshments, use of paddle and boat as well as Raft Guide

Total “damage”: PHP 1700 (approx SGD 50!)

e. Pressure Points Spa

If you ask us what is the best way to end our bloggerati traventure?


Nothing better than a pampering massage of course. At Pressure Points Spa, we were warmly greeted by their hospitable service of the therapists and were also spoilt for choices on the array of services they offer.

Pressure Points Spa

Holistic Body Massage- prices start from PHP 500

Foot massage- prices start from PHP 400

*Other treatments including foot detoxification, ear candling, manicures and pedicures start from PHP 200

Average “damage”: PHP 500 (approx SGD 15!)

All in all, the land, sea as well as the relaxation activities will only cost one less than SGD100. Where else can you get such a fun-filled activities at such an affordable price?! Need we say more?

For accommodations, we were treated with great hospitality at Park Inn by Radisson Hotel Davao and Seda Abreeza Hotel Davao, which were both located right next to convenient huge malls.



Our bloggers are having a giveaway where you can stand a chance to win yourself a pair of air tickets to Davao. Stay tuned to their Instagram accounts to find out how to participate in this contest!

Dear 2015,

You’ve been such an eventful year. This has truly been a year of many changes. There were quite a number of notable moments this year, so let’s take a step back to see how far things have come for Nuffnang.


Company trip

  • Company trip

The Nuffnang team has grown substantially since our first days. 2015 came with many internal changes and development plans for expansion. Naturally, we’ve also had new people come in to keep the energy up and operations going.

Company trips are an annual event for #nuffiesaroundtheworld where nuffies from the Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and China offices come together and get to know each other better. This is one time where we get to meet the others from the regional offices and get to know people from our own office even better!


8 birthday

  • 8th birthday

Our 8th birthday was quite a milestone! 8 years into the industry, and Nuffnang is still going strong as the top Blog Advertising Network. We are very proud to have come thus far.

The theme of the party was 8 onto ∞, where we aim for greater heights, and work towards a bigger and better Nuffnang, all around the world. This was also the time of the white/gold or blue/black dress viral phenomenon. Since our dress code was white & gold, Ming decided to be trippy and come in blue and black.

The birthday celebration was a huge success as there was an explosion of congratulatory notes all over social media. Both influencers and nuffies shared their well wishes for the company with hashtag #nuffnang8irthday. That was indeed one of our most favourite times of the year!

If you’re craving for more, relive the good memories through photos on our photo album!


Passing of LKY

  • Passing of LKY

With heavy hearts, Nuffnang went to pay our last respects to Singapore’s greatest founder, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. We joined the line on the very first day from 10am, and through that, witnessed the Singapore spirit as fellow Singaporeans helped each other with the long wait. Mr Lee might not be around anymore, but we will keep him and his aspirations close to our hearts as we work towards a home that he would be proud of.



  • NDP SG50

National Day was especially meaningful this year, not only because of the passing of Mr Lee, but also because it was a celebration of the amazing 50 years Singapore has come thus far. This SG50, Nuffnang partnered with the National Day committee and had our bloggers join in and share about the festivities. Older Singaporean icons as well as memorabilia definitely brought a lot of memories back!

Check out the thoughts of Becks, Kelvin and Joyce as they wrote about their exclusive experiences before and during the parade!



  • IPO

2015 was a big step for Nuffnang as we became a publicly listed company. Tons of sweat, blood and tears went into the planning and execution phases. When it eventually materialised, our CEO Ming and COO Timothy could not be happier. Big plans await!



  • Garuda Indonesia Trip

We also had one of our biggest media trips with our bloggers this year- our Garuda Indonesia trip! 8 bloggers were invited to go on the trip – Andy, Charlene, Shenny, Evonne, Randy, Sheila, Zoe and Jessica Tham.

It wasn’t an easy trip as it required a good amount of physical endurance as the bloggers did quite a bit of trekking and hiking. Call times were also often at odd hours in order to catch certain events. But overall, it was a great trip as bloggers had the chance to explore places they would otherwise not be able to on a regular trip.



  • Nuffnang Bloggers Conference

We had our first ever blogger conference! The blogging industry has been changing and we wanted to take time to also educate our bloggers on the changing landscape of the digital industry. We had speakers come in and share about various things- from online to offline, from Instagram photo taking skills to search engine optimisation. All in all, it was a really fruitful session for everyone.

After the event, Hotel Jen Tanglin also kindly extended invitations for a staycation for our influencers and Nuffnang stuff. Definitely a one of a kind experience!


new bloggers

  • New bloggers

Clockwise: Audrey, Andy, Sheng Jun, Keline, Rachel Wong, Nicole Choo

Here are some of the bloggers we have onboard in 2015!

Each of these bloggers have a unique take on life. Take a read at their blogs and you’ll find that they have plenty to offer.



As a career mom to beautiful baby Kayla, Audrey writes about her different experiences as a mom and owner to Churros 101.





As dad to 4 cheeky little kids, Andy shares about adventures he and his family goes on, and parenting tips when he can.




Sheng Jun

As a national swimmer, we get an exclusive look into how it is like as an athlete in Singapore.





Keline is a bubbly lifestyle blogger who loves sharing about every aspect in her life.




Rachel Wong

Rachel has been in the scene for some time now, and she continues to be loved widely by her readers for being very true to herself.




Nicole Choo

Nicole is a blossoming YouTuber who has been building great rapport with fans from her YouTube channel and blog.





2015 has been a year full of ups and downs but has definitely re-energised us as we went through challenges to get to where we are today. We would just like to take the chance to thank every single one of you who have supported Nuffnang through the years. Plans for 2016 is already looking exciting and we look forward to the New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!
