Official Launch of Shine Youth Festival @ Scape

On Saturday (2 July), I attended the official launch of Shine Youth Festival at Scape together with a group of omy.sg bloggers and photo enthusiasts.

omy.sg had two related activities in conjunction with Shine – “Kit Kat’s Yer Big Break Blog Challenge” and “Getting Up Close and Personal with Lumix at the Mascot Parade”.

I got to trail the mascot parade for a short distance, got some free Kit Kats and Panasonic photo prints. Most important of all, I got a photo taken with Yam Ah Mee!

He is a very jovial chap with no airs at all, obliging with anyone who came forward to snap a photo with him. Obviously, he was the star attraction of the day.

“Since when has being a civil servant been so cool!” I exclaimed to my colleague, Janet who nodded her head in agreement.

Superstar civil servants!

Anyway, here are some of the other photos taken at the official launch:
