Candylicious Neon Party
PART 1


Thank you friends, for coming to my birthday party, I have a total of 400+ photos, so I would probably have to break down my birthday posts into 3-4 blog posts. Firstly, I would like to thank my dearest Personal Assistant - Arisha, for helping me to coordinate this whole birthday party. We took a total of around 3 months (on and off, we worked on a lot of other things, this birthday is just 1 small project at my head office), together with my 3 interns to make this huge party possible. She is a little camera shy, and was extremely busy on that night - ensuring all my sponsors and guest list were properly sorted out. Hence, I don't see her picture anywhere around. But lets just let her remain a mystery to you at the moment. I will blog about our special dinner at Ku De Ta soon, after my birthday posts where I gave her a treat to thank her for all her hard work.

I was really excited about my birthday party the night before, so I had very little sleep. I woke up around 9am in the morning and was really excited to hear/read the updates on the "drama" that was caused by the local newspapers and social media. Apparently, 98.7FM DJ Sonia and DJ Joakim had received my formal invitation and was thanking me on national radio. 

I was also delighted to be on THE NEW PAPER Front Page. Thank you, for giving me an opportunity to go viral on the internet. Sometimes, you must wonder whether the so called "Netizens" or "Keyboard Warriors" who sit behind their computers have anything good to say or are they just bitter people who enjoy flaming others who lead a better and more fruitful life than theirs in order to feel better about themselves? I have been deemed a "Smart Cookie" for securing so many companies to come in as sponsors for my birthday and the traffic on my blog has been increasing rapidly ever since. Click on full story link below to read how I silent the jealous "Netizens" by listing all my active charitable works and contributions to Singapore's community and how the entire birthday bash resulted in a Positive PR Campaign :)

I am not a "Little Known Blogger" but a "Blogger who makes a Positive Difference!"

I went to my head office at 2pm to assist Arisha to ensure that all the door gifts, sponsored cash vouchers, prizes, guest list, and alcohol were in order before Arisha could prepare to send them to club Altimate. I had so many people on my guest list, so we took quite awhile to get that sorted out. I left my office at 3.30pm and headed to The Scene for my hair to be styled.  

I went to The Scene Robinsons Orchard (www.TheSceneOrchard.com.sg) to style my hair at 4pm in the afternoon. Art Director - Michel Ng, did my hair really beautifully. The Scene Hair Suite is located at Robinsons Orchard Level 3. Quote "Sara Shantelle" to enjoy 10% discount off all their hair services. They use AVEDA hair products, which is very healthy for the hair. I left their place at 5pm and went home to pick up my birthday dresses and shoes. Then I headed to Altimate at 6pm, to get the party started. Arisha, was there since 3pm, to assist in the setting up of the whole place. Very good job dear! *clap clap*


I would like to thank Bio-Beauty Aromatic Spa (www.BioBeauty.com.sg) for sponsoring my Make Up for that night. Annabelle Jocelyn helped me out with it. For a make up session to be done at Bio Beauty Aromatic Spa, takes around 30mins - 1h. It cost only SGD$58-$128 for your complete make over to be done. Feel free, to call them at (+65) 62598967 for an appointment.

I would like to thank all my alcohol sponsors - Jim Beam, Pinnacle Vodka, Courvoisier Cognac, Auchentoshan Whiskey, Galliano Liqueur and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, for their generous sponsorship. I would also like to thank my Japanese Sake sponsor, Adrian Goh, from InterRice Asia Pte Ltd (www.InterRiceAsia.com).

So, for every big event, there would be a door gift. So guess what's inside my door gift? I had quite a lot of generous sponsors. Thank you for your contributions. I really appreciate it. I think the total cash value is around SGD$250++ for each door gift.

I am very very blessed to have CANDYLICIOUS Singapore (www.CandyliciousShop.com) to be one of my sponsors for my birthday. They sponsored me a 2 Meters long Candy Buffet Table worth more than SGD$1800 in value and 2 huge chocolate bars for my "BEST DRESS MALES". I was really delighted as I always see their really famous colourful lollipops displayed all over Resorts World Sentosa. They also have another outlet at Takashimaya basement. I have a sweet tooth and love eating candy. I love their sour candies and dark chocolates. Candylicious slogan is EAT HAPPY. I am soooo happy that I decided to themed my birthday party: CANDYLICIOUS NEON. I wanted my birthday to be as HAPPY and as COLOURFUL and as FUN as possible!

At around 8pm onwards, my guests started to flow in. I went to change into my LIST ROMA Green Birthday Dress (www.ListFashionGroup.com). It has a big bow/ribbon at the side, which made me look like a present. It is such a cute dress. I feel like a happy kid when I wore this dress with this huge ribbon. LIST ROMA is located at Takashimaya Basement 1. They have really classy and yet fun looking fashion. They have both casual clothing and formal evening gowns. They also carry really pretty and comfortable heels and fashion accessories. Do check out their store in Takashimaya Orchard.

Dan Takeda (www.DanTakeda.com), and his friends, Kasahara Masashi and Takuya from CLEO Hair & Make (www.cleohairsg.com) came with a bunch of beautiful red roses. He had 4 different red roses from 4 different countries to make this beautiful bouquet of flowers. Thank you Dan Takeda, you are indeed very talented. Dan Takeda is a really top notch flower designer and artist. He has done flower arrangements for many events and large MNCs. He is in charge of regular flower arrangements for Luxury Boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Christian Dior and many luxury hotels etc. He also teach Flower Arrangement and provide courses to "tai-tais" and socialites.

I was really happy that Ian (www.fb.com/Altimate.sg) came down to grace my Birthday event too. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to work together with you. This whole event would not have happened without your support and consent. Club Altimate at 1-Altitude is the newest, latest and hottest club in Singapore now. It is located at Level 61 of 1 Raffles Place. Just below their restaurant called Stellar and their famous roof top bar called 1-Altitude (www.1-Altitude.com). 1-Altitude is a must-visit place for all tourists who visits Singapore. It has one of the most beautiful view of Singapore's city landscape. Club Altimate is strategic located above Raffles Place MRT Train Station and place to offers paranomic view of Singapore's CBD. Great bird eye's view from the top!

(Ian, Sara Shantelle Lim, Sean Gerard)

A big thank you to Sean Gerard, Director of Aesthetics & Beauty Magazine (www.AestheticsandBeauty.com) who attended my birthday party too. I love your magazines. It is really informative for a modern day girl like me, to be able to know the latest updates on modern beauty technologies and famous Aesthetic and Beauty Doctors in Singapore. I am pleased to let you know that my Birthday Party event is officially covered by The Aesthetics & Beauty Magazine "Out & About" July's 2014 Issue. Please remember to get a copy of this magazine, as you may find your picture in it. This magazine is circulated to most Aesthetics/Surgeries/Beauty Clinics in Singapore. You may also purchase it from your nearest news stand at only SGD$6

(Lawry's Mr Juan, Sara Shantelle Lim, Maxine Dreyfuss)

I am so happy that Mr Juan, Lawry's Prime Ribs Owner (www.Lawrys.com.sg) was able to come too. I love Lawry's beef as it has the softest and most tender beef. Their California Cut is my favourite. Do check out my blog post on Lawry's Prime Ribs at Mandarin Gallery Orchard (CLICK HERE). Mr Juan, is a really sweet friend, we will have a big feast topped with his delicious Martinis at his restaurant at least once a year to celebrate our friendship. Love it!

Founder of Lola Ling, Maxine Dreyfuss, is also one of my sponsors for my birthday party. I love her in her very colourful neon dress. She looks absolutely gorgeous. She sponsored some very furry and colourful kinky bedroom Handcuffs for my door gift and 3 lucky draw prizes for my guests. Funny Story - her hand cuffs were stuck at the Singapore Customs on my birthday. She had to go down there personally, to rectify the situation. Luckily, with her wits and her charms, she was able to clear the customs in time for my birthday party. Thank you dearie~

(Matthew Ong, Sara Shantelle, Soo Han, Nick T, Jimmy Fok, Enne, Wendy, Momo, Victor, Ian, Sufi, Natasha, Eri)

It was really amazing that most of my guests, really dressed up to the CANDYLICIOUS NEON COLOURFUL strict dress code theme. I had friends like Matthew Ong (owner of MUSE), Soo Han, Abvolution Fitness Trainer - Jason Chee, Miss Singapore - Glynis Tan, Nick T (Marketing Manger of Heart Media), International Model DJ - Nicole Chen, my beloved cousin, Enne Tan and Jimmy Fok (www.CalibrePics.com) and many other friends that came. I was really impressed by Enne and Jimmy as they took time and effort to dress up like cartoon characters for my birthday party. Just look at Enne's purple hair. I could not even recognized her when she walked in.

(Sara Shantelle Lim & SG Groupon Founder - Christopher Chong)

I was really happy that Christopher Chong, Founder of Beeconomics Groupon (www.Groupon.sg), was able to join me too. He is really an outstanding young entrepreneur - my personal role model. A few years ago, when Chris Chong first came to Singapore, he shared with me his business ideas and what his plans were. We spent some time, exchanging business strategies and ideas over drinks. Next thing I know, his company - Beeconomics, which he had started with his elder brother, was bought over by Groupon USA at a crazy SGD$24 million. I've worked with Groupon for a few of my businesses. I must say, it has done really good marketing and increased exposure for my businesses. Check out great deals at www.Groupon.Sg :)

Dear friends, there are more than 400+ official photos taken and more than 200+ of you, who came to my birthday celebration. Please stay tune, for more blog posts on my Birthday Party. There are still a lot more pictures coming up. Please stay tune! Or refer to my Facebook for updates!
