The good old times in Singapore are over... We don't need that dirty money anymore.
I'm writing on behalf of the creative folks at Bates and 141 Worldwide. You see, we're always partying it up - seeing we manage all the Heineken parties and are responsible for all of its advertising and communication collaterals. In fact, we've seen our ugly mugs in your magazines before. But...often times we're told by folks from the other agencies we're in the magazines. By the time we try to get our paws on the copies, they're all gone. So, what we'd like to ask is this: Please add us to your distribution list! We'll try not to look like animals! - Many thanks in advance, Karen San, Creative Group Head, 141 Worldwide
Thanks for the kind words Karen, we'd be more than pleased to give you the 'evidence'' of your nights out on the town, just remember that we have the negatives! As for being hard to get, that's been a problem from the start, the magazines are picked up as soon as they are seen. In fact, at some locations, 100 copies an hour fly out the door! You can count on us steadily increasing our print run each month to counterbalance this fact.
Love your mag. I really trust your advice on all the hip places to go and things to do. So I was wondering if you can help me out. Please help me plan the ultimate (but not HUGELY expensive) birthday party weekend. I will be 25 on FEb. 15 and decided to save the weekend of Feb. 12-113 for a big birthday blowout, possibly some girl time, some boyfriend time and some "I'm gonna get drunk with all of Clarke Quay" time). I'm assuming this will be my last "happy" birthday to celebrate. Because after being able to rent cars without extra charges, what else is there to look forward to? - Thanks much for your great service!! - Valerie
Since this issue hits the streets (with a whole slew of live music venues you must check out), you aren't going to have much time to heed our advice, but here it is: First, purchase a term life insurance policy (non-renewable). You should be able to get about $1 million in coverage for about $30/month. Next, get your hands on a 750ml bottle of Mr. & Mrs. T's Bloody Mary Mix (Rich & Spicy, not the regular). Then, find an old Thighmaster, a male who looks kinda like your boyfriend in dim light and several ripe artichokes. If you put all of these things in one room on your birthday, and then just act the way Mother Nature intended, you'll wake up the next day with no hangover, a new best-friend-for-life and - if you play your cards right - a lot of extra cash. Be sure and call us from your gold-plated cell phone and tell us how it went.
Just because you hate Jesus doesn't mean that He doesn't love you. While you are busy mocking the Savior, He is busy answering the prayers of the sick and the weak. Maybe if you took a little time away from your hedonist lifestyle and started reading the scripture, you would know that Jesus didn't wear sun glasses or serve up cocktails. You would see that Jesus is peace, Jesus is light, Jesus is knowledge, Jesus is LORD. - Justin Nilsen
If you're referring to the illustration for "Booze for the Holidays" [Issue 6, page 22], you'll clearly see that we weren't making fun of Jesus, but rather choosing to express our views of how he appears to us, and nobody owns the right to say how he looked. You write that the bible says Jesus didn't wear sunglasses, but it also didn't say he was a white guy either. But wasn't it the Apostle Sinbad who said, "Yo, thank you Apollo Theater, you've been a great audience!" - which, when translated from ancient Aramaic means, "Thou shalt learn to take a joke."
The word 'creativity' has so many diverse meanings & interpretations.
Are educators here psychologically prepared to be vessels of thinking skills to the future pillars of Singapore?
Think takes a look at what it takes to get the thinkin' juices flowing.
A common question asked in our offices is,
Where, at three-twenty in the morning an you stuff my face and thus perhaps avert a hangover?
And can a meal be had for under ten dollars?
