It is time for us to announce that Nuffnang’s 8th birthday is here! We’re so grateful for your continuous support throughout the years to make us what and where we are today! Thank you all Nuffnangers :)

Every year, we will throw a themed birthday bash and have Nuffnangers and clients to celebrate the birth and success of Nuffnang. This time round, we want to do that in a classy and glamorous way.

Speaking about that, how can we not think of the iconic character, Audrey Hepburn? Her charming character and classic-and-classy femininity are so much to die for!

Hence! We’re all out for a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed birthday bash this year! *sparkleseverywhere*

Imagine standing in nothing but darkness surrounding you, the lights are off and it is pitch black. These are conditions that the visually impaired go through every day. However, this does not stop them from improving themselves as the days go by. This is proven by founder of Dialogue in The Dark (DiD) Malaysia, Stevens Chan Kum Fai, who suffered from Glaucoma and lost his visual sense of the world.  The story does not end there, he was determined to bridge the gap between the visually impaired and the sighted public; hoping the latter would further appreciate the importance of sight.

Cuti Cuti Msia Flyer D1

Dialogue in the Dark’s main purpose is to project awareness that there are no differences between “us” and “them”.  Therefore, Dialogue in the Dark has come up with a few concepts that will allow the public to experience a 45 minute journey through Mount Kinabalu, Petaling Street and Port Dickson without their sense of sight. Visitors will then be welcomed to a dining experience in complete darkness known as Cuisine in the Dark, assisted by the guides of Dialogue in the Dark. Imagine dining without the aid of your sight, you won’t be able to see it; however the food will be extra flavoursome when your other senses are heightened!

DID-FA-Cuisine in the Dark

Nuffnang Malaysia in collaboration with Dialogue in the Dark Malaysia will be giving ten(10) Nuffnangers a chance to feel what it is like to walk and dine without lights.

Venue: Dialogue in the Dark, The School Jaya One

Date: 17th October 2014 (Friday)

Time: 5.30PM – 8.00PM

Here’s what you gotta do!

“What other sense would you value more other than your sight and Why”

The CMO of UMobile, Jasmine conducted a Q&A session with the bloggers before giving away ‘Buah Tangan’ to those who could answer question regarding UMobile.

Moving on, we had a ‘masak-masak’ session with Kasihaleeya and Ceeranoh! These two beautiful bloggers managed to cooked up an amazing dish of ‘Lontong’ and  ‘Sambal Ikan Billis’. If you don’t trust us, trust our food bloggers who said the Lontong tasted heavenly. ;)

So you’ve heard about #NuffnangLovin’!

We had our very first Nuffnang Lovin’ at Aloft KL Sentral’s W xyz Bar on 25th April 2014. Refer to our previous post here to find out more about Aloft KL Sentral. :)

Keep reading to find out what went on that evening.

NNL

Let’s get started with some pictures of the place and participants!

Meet Denise and Eric, our ushers of the day, at the registration table.

Upon registration, our Nuffnangers also had a chance to take pictures at the photo wall before entering W xyz Bar! Oh! Remember to have a look at our Nuffnang Lovin’ photo album on our Facebook page. Spot and tag yourselves! :)

Right at W xyz Bar, it was The Light Fantastic welcoming and greeting us with a beautiful performance. From the short Q&A session by our Emcee of the night, Adrian, and we were told that it was actually their last performance. BUT, they’ll be back to perform again from 28th May onwards.

3

While waiting for the event to start, Kendrick and Christy had a friendly pool match. Guess who won the match! :P

4

Shortly after, we started the night by having our Nuffies do a short introduction about themselves.

IMG_0107

To get everyone warmed up for the night, we played the Nuffnang version of speed dating. Here’s the deal, those in the outer circle, were required to keep moving in an anti-clockwise direction (right). At each stop, they would have to introduce themselves and interact with whoever was in front of them for 5 seconds.

After that ice-breaking session, it’s dinner time! Our dinner was served canapé style; the best way to have dinner while socialising with others without focusing too much on either one.

Then, we were given an introductory and welcome speech by the GM of Aloft Hotels, Mr Paolo.

IMG_0103

And…

GUESS WHAT?!

5

Aloft KL Sentral got Paperplane Pursuit to perform for us too! Their performance was so lively and catchy and they definitely got everyone’s attention!

Paperplane Pursuit, a band of 5 led by John O, the energetic lead singer, is a pop band based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. First gained recognition in 2010, and they are getting more popular than ever! :D Go and check them out on their Paperplane Pursuit YouTube channel.

IMG_0165

We were also given a tour around Aloft to be “introduced” to their re:mix lounge, re:fuel, in touch, Aloha Desk, and of course, XBOX Kinect. :P

UP UP UP WE GOOO!

IMG_0199

But first, #letustakeaselfie. That’s what they always say, if you can’t beat them, join them!

1383292_10152117632473520_7969327638105189658_n copy

Next stop ─ Aloft’s MAI Bar, at the roof top! It is an elongated and spacious bar, aesthetically defined by Tiki culture decorations. We became even more amazed when we saw its swimming pool and open space area for its guests to chill and socialise at the outside. At the end of the open space area, there’s a perfect spot for a bird’s-eye view of Kuala Lumpur city.

We then decided to spend some time at MAI bar since there was so much to see.

water copy

As usual, group photos are a must for us! Since the view and the lighting were a perfect match, we decided to get it done there. :)

IMG_0213

IMG_0215

Then, we had a Nuffies Sharing Session conducted by Janice, our Nuffnang Community Executive, Adrian, our Nuffnang Talent Executive, and Michelle, our Assistant Country Manager, back at W xyz Bar to share tips, information, and more about blogging.

7

Coming up… Time for more fun of course!

Nuffnangers were divided into 3 groups and each was led by a Nuffie.

8

Every group was given an envelope which contained a list of items that they were required to get. And the team that finishes that task first would be the ONLY team going back with prizes.

Drum roll please!

……

Holla Nuffnangers! We think May may just be the most awesome month in the first half of year. Well, we started the month with a public holiday for a start, but it’s only going to get better, especially for the BOLD ones…let us break the news to you!

May is all about celebrating people who make truly BOLD choices in life, and since bold people are Made of More (like GUINNESS), they’ll be rewarded with a fine pint of the black brew! Say what? 

gg

“Made of More” is a campaign by GUINNESS, rewarding the BOLD ones who helped make GUINNESS a premium brand that it is today. Furthermore, it’s about celebrating the quality of people who enjoy this fine black brew.

Here’s how it works:

GUINNESS is sending their trucks to tour Klang Valley all of May to give out FREE pints of GUINNESS to bold people. All you need to do is, leave work on time and come on down to the #madeofmore truck at 17:59 and you’ll be rewarded with a pint of GUINNESS black brew for free! And IF you’re feeling extra bold, bring your boss along too! Sounds too good to be true? Well… we Nuffies made a bold move to check it out last Tuesday.

So we saw the GUINNESS truck parked at Avenue K during lunch last week and “invited” our boss (Hi, Tim!) for drinks that night.

IMG-20140506-WA0005

To get the free pint though, we had to get it between 6-7PM only…..so we left office on time at 5.30PM and head down to Avenue K!

 IMG-20140506-WA0001

   Once the digital clock struck 17:59, the party begun!

DSC_0479

 We were first introduced to the idea behind the #madeofmore movement by GUINNESS.

IMG_0519

 Then…we created quite a commotion at the truck, Instagraming away while in queue for GUINNESS! Bold passers-by got rewarded by turning up at the truck on time with us.

Fotor050815098

Here we are, with our drinks and smiles!

Fotor0508111855

So, that was our bold story one fine Tuesday. Don’t miss your chance to catch the GUINNESS #madeofmore truck at their next stops!

  • Malones @ Sooka Sentral –  9th of May (Friday, 17:59 onwards 6PM – 7PM)
  • Scott Garden, Kuchai Lama – 16th of May (Friday, 17:59 onwards 6PM – 7PM)

For more exciting activities and find out how GUINNESS will reward your boldnessstay tuned to facebook.com/guinnessmalaysia. Good news are meant to be shared, so spread it with your friends! *Cheers*
