RISE restaurant is an international buffet restaurant located at the lobby of Tower 1, Marina Bay Sands Hotel. I have not tried the restaurant before, so it was a good opportunity when I got to try their buffet spread last Thursday. In celebration of Oktoberfest, RISE restaurant has added an outdoor barbeque station for patrons to enjoy! The outdoor barbeque will be available every Thursday for the month of October. You can look forward to many different kinds of grilled sausages such as juicy bratwurst, snail sausage, smoked pork and garlic sausage, cheeser krainer among other regular buffet favourites! The sausages are quite flavorful and there are six different kinds of mustards for you to try! Goes very well with the sausages I must say. I am usually not a sausage fan but those sausages were really good.

Samsung Dream Exchange Campaign After my first trip outside a country in Asia and spending 9 Days 8 Nights in both Sydney and Melbourne, I’m finally publishing my very first travel photo e-book on darrenbloggie.com. All these would not have been possible without my Samsung NX3000 as my wonderful travel companion. Thanks Samsung for helping me to make everlasting memories. Throughout the trip, the Samsung NX3000 never failed to surprise me with the wonders it’s able to create! Not only did the photo quality turn out to be superb (as good as a DSLR camera), colors were vibrant, shutter speed was fast enough to capture real sharp images of moving objects, and most importantly, it performed better than what I would have expected under low light conditions! As there are simply too many photos that I’ve taken which I would like to share with you, I’m breaking them up into different volumes :) Presenting to you, VOLUME 01 : MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE, Darrenbloggie’s Travel Photobook Collaboration with Samsung
Samsung Dream Exchange Campaign I’ve always had an interest in photography. It allows me to capture the moment and keep it as a part of my memory. There’s always a story to tell from a photo and I always love those photobooks which have really nice photos, especially travel photobooks showcasing the wonders of the places visited. From these photos, you get to visit places without being there and have a better understanding of how the place looks like, more about the culture and the heritage. That’s something that I would like to do!

Are you able to name me an eyewear brand which speaks of street style with slight hint of rebellion in it. POLICE got to be the one! Inspired by American “on the road” spirit, the personality of this brand is aggressive, non-conformist and even a little hedonistic. Just like what POLICE the brand represent, when it comes to fashion, it’s my game, my rule as I define the style I want. Fashion is something very judgmental. Someone may like the way you dress up but some may find it a fashion disaster. After all I think if you are able to carry off the style you like, or have confidence in what you wear, and people find it comfortable looking at the combination you have, I think you’ve probably did a great job. When I was given “The Quirky” look for this campaign, my first impression was… err.. what’s that? I did a little research online and notice that quirky isn’t simply just a fashion statement. It’s a way of being, always catching people who …
