Royston Tan’s Little Note (小字条)

The short film poster
The short film poster

Little Note《小字条》 is a 15 minutes short film commissioned by Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery. It is written and directed by the director of box office hits, 881 and 12 Lotus, Royston Tan.

I watched it at the gala premiere at LIDO Orchard a few weeks back. To be honest, I was expecting more from Royston. I left the cinema hall feeling a little disappointed as the narrative packed no surprises. Except for the usual beautiful cinematography and scenery, most of the film fell flat for me.

Nonetheless, it is still a heartwarming short film about a boy’s relationship with his mother, growing up in a single parent environment. You can find out more about the film on it’s official website or read the reviews written by other bloggers who attended the event.

This short film will be released directly to video. Hence you have to buy the DVD if you want to watch it. 🙂

Organised by omy (www.omy.sg), a bilingual news and interactive web portal by Southeast Asia’s leading media organisation Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SPH), the Awards honour “new-age wordsmiths” who devote their time and energy to create and maintain informative and innovative blogs.

A total of 6000 blogs were nominated and over 70,000 votes were cast for last year’s inaugural event.

With more sponsors participating in the event, prizes will also be more enticing for participating bloggers.

Ms Lee Kuan Fung, Associate Editor of omy.sg, said: “The blogosphere gets more exciting with more people sharing their stories online and more readers supporting these stories. With the launch of the second Singapore Blog Awards, we hope to bring these voices to a new high. ”

Nominations and registrations for the Singapore Blog Awards are now open. The public can log on to the official site (http://sgblogawards.omy.sg) to nominate their favourite blogs. Bloggers can also participate directly by registering themselves for the Awards.

The Awards will be divided into three phases. The first phase consists of nomination and registration, which will end in June 2009. Following that, the omy editorial team will select the top ten blogs for each category. These blogs will then be put through a rigorous public voting process as well as scoring by a panel of ten professional judges.

Commenting on the Awards, Mr Kelvin Tong, who is one of the judges, said: “There were pagers. Then, there were mobile phones. Now there is the blog. Blogging has become a vital and intrinsic part of youth culture. They express the experiences, thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes and fears of the new generation.”

Adding to the excitement are fringe awards which are determined entirely by public voting. They are the Best Local Celebrity Blog, Best Overseas Celebrity Blog and the Most-Blogged-About event in 2008. There will be no prizes given to the fringe award winners.

All bloggers and voters stand to win a total of over $20,000 worth of prizes by participating in the Awards. Prizes include mobile phones, shopping vouchers, overseas hotel accommodation packages, food products and more.

Singapore Entertainment Awards 2009 Celebration Party – Photos Galore!

Setting up the stage
Setting up the stage

I am not going to type too much text as I am very tired… really need to get more rest. Nonetheless, I am anxious to share with everyone the photos I took at the Singapore Entertainment Awards 2009 Celebration Party, so here goes.

I was stationed at the artistes’ holding tent just beside the stage – meaning I have excellent access to the red carpet, the stage and even backstage with the celebrities. However, as I have to work also, I can only sneak in a few pictures here and there.

For more news and updates about the Singapore Entertainments Awards, you can visit www.omy.sg or the official awards website; listen to Radio 1003; buy the next copy of UWeekly magazine and of course; grab a copy of the evening paper, Lianhe Wanbao. For behind-the-scene photos taken on Friday, a day before the celebration party, you can check out my blog entry yesterday.

If you were there at the awards party, you may also want to share your photos/videos with everyone HERE on omy.sg – the best three entries will get to win Show Luo’s latest CD and poster.

Enough from me already… let’s proceed to the pictures! 🙂
