Hello everyone!

We are about a week away from Chinese New Year (CNY) and many of us Nuffies are really excited about ushering the Year of the Goat. With the arrival of CNY, that also means reunion dinners, heaps of pineapple tarts, cartons of soft drinks and of course, RED PACKETS!

Sadly, all that feasting and merry-making usually comes with a price – one that is oftentimes at the expense of our health.

This year, we have decided that it would be wiser to counter the damage of bak kwa and pineapple tarts with Cai Bao’s Premium Bottled Bird’s Nest!

Cai Bao Bird Nest

Cai Bao harvests most of their bird’s nest from their own farms in Indonesia, then package them in Singapore. They are also the experts in the sale of all the different varieties of bird’s nests.

For their Premium Bottled Bird’s Nest, they have chosen to use high quality House Nests for its large size, which means longer and crunchier strands of bird’s nest in each bottle!

Additionally, bird’s nest has many health benefits such as boosting the immunity system and enhancing skin complexion. (Ladies, this is your elixir of youth!)

If by now you are thinking that getting Premium Bird’s Nest for CNY would blow a hole in your wallet, Cai Bao offers the bird’s nests at affordable prices so that we can all be healthy and wealthy during the festive season.

Better yet, Cai Bao also offers the bottles in various sizes and packages so that there is something for everyone!

Here’s wishing everyone a prosperous, healthy, and fun-filled CNY!

Hey Nuffnangers!

How many of you always dream of having a car of your own? Many Singaporeans think of their car as a convenient mode of transport, an expensive necessity for work or family or a status symbol while on the road. Wished you could own a car even for just a day because……

m1 fringe fest

We’re excited to announce that our friends The Necessary Stage are once again presenting the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival! Running for its 11th year, the festival will be on from 14th to 25th January 2015 across several venues.

Themed around Art and Loss, the 2015 festival will feature a total of 18 events from 8 countries. And for the first time in its history, the Festival will see a fresh direction as a new Artistic director — theatre-maker and educator Sean Tobin — takes over the reins.

In line with its twin purpose of innovation and discussion, 2015’s Festival also seeks to forge new relationships with emerging and established artists, so as to encourage the ongoing developments and refining of art-making practices of independent artists on the fringe.

Loss is an intimately familiar concept that is an inevitable part of our human experience, and art is a medium that can be used as a form of remembrance, and also a catharsis in creation. As Tobin expresses, “We have all lost stuff. So let’s come together to laugh, blush, cry and cringe about it. Let’s retrace, regret and recreate.”

Tickets are on sale from SISTIC, and are priced at $19 and $22 excluding ticketing charges. M1 staff and customers will also enjoy an exclusive 20% discount off all tickets until the end of the festival!

If you want to get a glimpse into what’s in store at the Fringe 2015, or are keen in learning more about the process of art-making, come along for Reimagining Singapore Theatre on 22nd November 2014 from 3 to 4.30pm. Join in on this lively discussion about the artists’ inspirations, challenges and strategies, which will be moderated by Tobin.

Also, if you’re an aspiring theatre practitioner or student, here’s your chance to get a first-hand experience of the unique devising methodology developed by Alvin Tan and Haresh Sharma! The Devising Masterclass with both artists is to be held from 17th to 18th January 2015 at Esplanade Rehearsal Studio, and the deadline for registration is on 2nd December 2014. Don’t wait to sign up for this opportunity!

Get involved and join M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, as it examines and excavates different interpretations of the relationship between Art and Loss. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more information and updates!

Guess the winner contest v3

Any movie addict would be anticipating this weekend because it’s finally the awards season!!

Most of the Nuffies are huge movie fans and we often unwind after a long day at work by going on a group movie date. Have you seen nominee lists for the top 3 award categories –  Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Actress in a Leading Role?

Best Picture Nominees
American Hustle
Captain Phillips
Dallas Buyers Club
Gravity
Her
Nebraska
Philomena
12 Years a Slave
The Wolf of Wall Street

Best Actor in a Leading Role
Christian Bale (American Hustle)
Bruce Dern (Nebraska)
Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street)
Chiwetel Ejiafor (12 Years a Slave)
Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)

Best Actress in a Leading Role
Amy Adams (American Hustle)
Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)
Sandra Bullock (Gravity)
Judi Dench (Philomena)
Meryl Streep (August: Osage County)

Here’s the Guess List the Nuffies have come up with after a few heated discussions over lunch (spoilers alert! But we think the film lovers amongst you would have already watched most of the films already anyway.):

1. Best Picture: 12 Years a Slave

Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave is based on real life and real issues, focusing on a subject that is relatable and powerful. 12 Years a Slave is an account of how Northup was drugged, kidnapped then sold and bartered to a series of slave owners, and it sparked plenty of soul-searching discussions about race, complicity and reconciliation. We think that that this independently financed film transcends the other nominees in terms of its powerful story-telling and truthfulness.

2. Best Actor in a Leading Role: Mathhew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)

 The movie revolves around HIV-positive patient Ron Woodroof, who smuggles unapproved pharmaceutical drugs into Texas after finding them effective at improving his HIV symptoms. He then distributes them to fellow sufferers by establishing the “Dallas Buyers Club”. Call us biased 30 Seconds to Mars fans (or not), but we think that Jared Leto’s performance as a HIV-positive transgender woman in this film is worth a mention too. The guardian labelled Matthew McConaughey’s performance in the film “a triumph” and most of the Nuffies agree unanimously too.

3. Best Actress in a Leading Role: Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)

Empire called Cate Blanchett’s performance a “powerhouse” and we couldn’t agree more. She plays a socialite fallen on hard times whose life imploded upon her husband’s imprisonment. Watching interlacing scenes of extravagance with the dawning realities of a meltdown beyond a protective bubble left most of us gasping for breath together with the ups and downs the character goes through.
