Prize Reveal: Intellectual Property Office of Singapore Facebook Contest

Hi guys! Just wanted to share some news. :)

Early this week, I got a heads-up that I’d won a book in a Facebook contest organised by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (“IPOS”).

I’ve always been interested in intellectual property law. IMO, having your work stolen is one of the most infuriating things in life. Don’t you want to know your rights and the laws that protect your hard work?

I recall my class being given a tutorial assignment which required every one of us to borrow a book on an area of law which we had not yet covered, bring the book to class, and explain why we chose that particular book. Fortunately, we were only in year one then, so we had lots of choices! Naturally, I chose a book on intellectual property law. :)

When we were due to go on internship, I had the opportunity to do research on intellectual property law. My internship company needed information on patent application. They invented something simple, but amazing and extremely practical. They showed it to me and I learnt to dismantle the product in two seconds flat. Reassembling it took another two seconds. It was kind of cool then; at that time, we were not yet taught intellectual property law. (And it helped that my office was only a 5-minute drive away from school. The school’s research facilities were definitely useful!) Strangely, I never applied to IPOS for a job. Well, who knows what will happen in the future, right? ;)

Anyways, back to the prize reveal. I won The Wonderful Future That Never Was: Flying Cars, Mail Delivery by Parachute and Other Predictions from the Past by Gregory Benford and The Editors of Popular Mechanics.

When I think “woman”, I think of strong, classic and inspirational ones such as Grace Kelly, Judy Garland, and Audrey Hepburn, to name a few.

In the campaign poster below, the models portray (from left) Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel. I am sure the said icons require no introduction! :)

Prize Reveal: Benefit Cosmetics Singapore Facebook Eye Makeup Contest

A while ago, Benefit Cosmetics Singapore organised a Facebook eye makeup contest, which I took part in.  The criteria: submit a photograph of your eye makeup along with a writeup on why you would like your eye makeup to stay from AM to PM.  I love contests!  Especially ones organised by Benefit.  XD

Anyways, here’s my submission.  This look was created using Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Strut, and Velvet Eyeshadows in Bikini Line and Fawn Over Me.  Though you probably can’t really see much of Fawn Over Me in the photo.  The look is safari-inspired, and I thought the embellished top went really well with the eyeshadow colours.
