Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company is set to introduce the new LACELLE Grace Daily disposable cosmetic contact lens to enhance the beauty of your eyes, giving it a captivating sparkle.
Created for comfort and style, the new LACELLE Grace Daily adds a hint of colour to your eyes and a splash of sparkle for that sharp confident look you want, and the comfortable, healthy eyes you need.
This is in line with the study conducted in Korea done by Bausch + Lomb with a group of contact lens wearers between the age of 15-34, where 87% of the consumers who participated shared that they wear contact lens to look more beautiful and 71% of the participants said that they wear contact lens to give their eyes a more sparkling look.
The new Bausch + Lomb LACELLE Grace Daily cosmetic contact lens feature three unique intricate lens designs – Crystal Brown, Twinkle Brown and Sparkling Black.
Developed with 55% of water content and high-moisturising Methacrylic Acid (MAA) content to keep eyes moist and comfortable all day long, the thin and tapered lens edge design of LACELLE Grace Daily cosmetic contact lens also provides improved wearing comfort by reducing friction between the lens and the eyelid during blinking.
In addition, Bausch + Lomb uses the Micro-Encapsulation Technology (MET) in LACELLE Grace Daily to encapsulate the FDA-approved color pigments (Iron oxide and titanium oxide) within the lens so as to prevent any direct contact of the pigments with the eyes, making it non-irritating to the eyes.
Retailing at SGD60 per box of 30 pieces, with a promotion price at SGD100 for two boxes and SGD190 for four boxes, Bausch + Lomb LACELLE Grace Daily cosmetic contact lenses will be available at leading Optical Chain and Optical Retail outlets from now.

evian® launches its new Oversize campaign across Asia, and brings to life a world in oversize, as seen through the eyes of a baby. This is the seventhOn September 6, 2017 / By Nookmag
evian® launches its new Oversize campaign across Asia, and brings to life a world in oversize, as seen through the eyes of a baby. This is the seventh edition of the company’s highly successful “Live young” campaign.
“The evian® “Live young” brand promise has come to life through our iconic babies campaigns year after year. In continued efforts to surprise and push boundaries, we base our latest chapter, Oversize, on a premise that gets consumers to literally experience their world from a different perspective,” explains Patricia Oliva, the Global Marketing Director at evian®.
This regional campaign was kicked off in Taiwan by regional campaign ambassador Ella Chen, one of the most recognizable faces in Asian showbiz today. Her outgoing, creative and bold personality made her the perfect fit for evian’s “Live young” brand promise. During the event, Ella shared more about her “Live young” philosophy towards life. “Live young is not about the age. It is an attitude and the willingness to be different, to be bold to try new things. We must always be young at heart and that to me is “Live young””.
At the event, evian® also launched its first-ever Asia Oversize fashion wardrobe at the Xinyi District in Taiwan where consumers were invited to walk into an Oversize wardrobe and experience the campaign for themselves.
Oversize brought to life through exclusive collaborations
The evian® Oversize campaign invites everyone to perceive the world through their inner baby’s eyes. Already, the visuals showcase personalities from around the world who discover themselves being projected as babies after drinking evian® natural mineral water.
To date, the global evian® “Live young” team comprises of international sports personalities Maria Sharapova, Stan Wawrinka, Lucas Pouille, Madison Keys and Lydia Ko. Sun Li, famed Chinese actress, has also joined the campaign as of June 2017. Promoting the importance of sports, hydration and a healthy, balanced lifestyle, the six brand ambassadors are part of a digital clip that highlights their transformation into babies after drinking evian®.
“After the Baby & Me campaign in 2013, which portrayed adults in front of their reflection as babies, this Oversize campaign goes one step further by giving everyone the chance to experience the world through the eyes of a baby. Whether you are a tennis champion, an
actress, a business professional or regular Joe, the message remains the same: youth lies within each of us and all we need to do is embrace this “Live young” spirit every day,” comments Marielle Durandet, VP at BETC, the creative agency behind the “Live young” campaign.
Extending an internationally successful “Live young” narrative
Since the first “Live young” campaign in 2009, evian® has managed to capture popular imagination across all ages with this very successful and award-winning creative narrative. From the first Roller Babies campaign, evian® has been collecting thousands of millions of impressions. The 2017 evian® Oversize campaign looks to further that narrative. It will be activated in evian® core markets and supported by fan engagement and ongoing digital content for a year.
Oversize in Singapore with Rosalyn Lee
Rosalyn Lee, a well-known local personality with a strong digital presence and vivacious personality, will be working closely with evian® to bring the Singapore campaign to life.
From now – 30th November, evian® will launch a social media contest where participants stand a chance to win a 4D3N trip for two worth up to SGD5,000 to enjoy the brand new evian® spa at the six-star Signiel hotel in Seoul.

Contest details will be made available in all participating retail outlets and the evian® Facebook page from now.
Today, Google announced it is bringing Google Wifi to Singapore, in partnership with StarHub. Google Wifi is a mesh networking system that replaces traditional routers, putting an endOn September 5, 2017 / By Nookmag
Today, Google announced it is bringing Google Wifi to Singapore, in partnership with StarHub. Google Wifi is a mesh networking system that replaces traditional routers, putting an end to dead zones at home and ensuring strong and fast signals for all your connected devices. Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to introduce Google Wifi.
Set up and control your network with the Google Wifi app
With Google Wifi, you no longer need to schedule an appointment with a technician to set up your new router. Google Wifi makes it so easy that you can do it yourself. Simply download the Google Wifi app available on Android or iOS and follow the step by step instructions, so you’ll be online in no time.
With the Google Wifi app, you can also see which devices are connected to your network and how much bandwidth they’re using. Streaming your favourite scene from Descendants of the Sun on your TV? Give it more bandwidth and a faster connection by selecting it as a “Priority Device”. Now you can sit back and enjoy that episode uninterrupted by other devices in your home.
Giving you fast Wi-Fi anywhere, anytime
Singapore has the world’s fastest broadband speeds1 but sometimes it may not feel like it. Traditional Wi- Fi routers aren’t always built to support the increasing number of devices we use or high bandwidth activities like gaming or watching videos. Most of us just want our Wi-Fi to work fast at home, without spending time managing our network or pushing the reset button on the router.
With Google Wifi , your device will always be placed on the channel with optimal Wi-Fi connection. Even as you are moving from room to room, Network Assist will automatically transition your device between the Google Wifi system points, keeping you connected to the point with the strongest signal so you avoid dead spots or delays.
Helping your family with special everyday moments
We know it’s tough to put a pause on your kid’s FIFA video game or get everyone to the dinner table. The Google Wifi app lets you pause Wi-Fi on your kids’ devices or create scheduled pauses for dinner time and bedtime, so you can fully engage in that mealtime conversation or squeeze in one more session of bedtime storytelling. Lights out, Wi-Fi out!
Martin Geh, Managing Director, APAC Hardware Partnerships at Google said, “Having a fast and reliable Wi- Fi connection is important to Singaporeans. Google Wifi provides seamless coverage at home, solving common issues like dead zones, spotty Wi-Fi connections, confusing set-up processes and so much more. Parents will also have greater control of their family’s Wi-Fi network, enabling them to spend quality time with their children whenever they want.”
Google Wifi in stores on 31 August
Starting 31 August, customers in Singapore will be able to buy a three-pack Google Wifi bundle at $15 per month over 24 months when they sign up for or renew selected StarHub Broadband or Hubbing all-in-one plans.
Mr. Howie Lau, Chief Marketing Officer, StarHub said, “Mesh networking is quickly becoming popular, and we are thrilled to be Google’s exclusive local partner for Google Wifi, which has set the standard for ease-of-use, performance and affordability. With Google Wifi, our home broadband customers can easily enjoy wireless broadband connections at every corner of their homes.”

Celebrating 50 years of National Service, So Drama! Entertainment has released a tribute album saluting the contributions of all national servicemen past and present, distributed exclusively by WarnerOn August 10, 2017 / By Nookmag
Celebrating 50 years of National Service, So Drama! Entertainment has released a tribute album saluting the contributions of all national servicemen past and present, distributed exclusively by Warner Music Singapore.
Titled We’ll Carry On (The NS50 Album), the album is a collection of seven original songs performed by members of the Singapore Armed Forces Music and Drama Company (MDC), as well as some of its illustrious alumni such as Sing! China runner-up NATHAN HARTONO, Singapore Idol Season 3 winner SEZAIRI, and local hip-hop artiste SHIGGA SHAY.
DEFENCE MINISTER DR. NG ENG HEN will also be making a guest contribution to a special recording of the song “WE ARE THE PEOPLE”. The song will be performed by Nathan Hartono and the MDC’s very own vocal group, Camokakis.
Mr Loh Aik Khoon, MDC, said: “Music has always been a part of NS, from the songs we sing on route marches to the military band performances at parades, as well as MDC productions for our national servicemen in camp. This being the 50th year of NS, we wanted to commemorate the milestone year in our own unique way. Each artiste featured here contributed significantly to the diverse musical perspectives in the album. Through this album, we hope to connect to the older and younger generations alike on their NS experiences and what NS means to them. The message we wish to send is about how NS is close to the Singaporean way of life, and we also want to show our respect to all past and present national servicemen, as well as their family and loved ones for their commitment to national defence.”
LCP Dominic Chin, who wrote the song ‘We’ll Carry On’, said: “I was inspired by the many generations of national servicemen over the past five decades, who have served our country with pride and dedication during their NS. Through the song, I wanted to convey that our future generations of national servicemen will continue to bring that same spirit of service to national defence, and that the institution is vital to Singapore’s continued peace and prosperity.”
We’ll Carry On (The NS50 Album) is now available for download and streaming on all digital platforms here.
In celebration of National Day, Ohmyhome officially revealed the first part of Singapore’s largest comic strip at Jurong East MRT Station today. The comic strip spans a totalOn August 7, 2017 / By Nookmag
In celebration of National Day, Ohmyhome officially revealed the first part of Singapore’s largest comic strip at Jurong East MRT Station today. The comic strip spans a total of 144 panels and it will cover every row of platform doors at Jurong East MRT Station and Bedok MRT Station.
Titled ‘Days of Our Lives’, the comic strip showcases a collection of twelve storylines, all inspired by the unique stories of real Ohmyhome’s users. From a young couple who married with the quintessentially Singaporean proposal ‘Want to BTO?’, to children moving closer to their old-aged parents to care for them. The first 96 panels are installed at Jurong East MRT Station until 16 August. The other 48 panels will be at Bedok MRT Station from 10 August to 23 August. This is the first time the real estate platform and CEA licensed real estate agency is producing such a large-scale print installation.
Ms Rhonda Wong, CEO and co-founder of Ohmyhome, and Ms Race Wong, COO and co-founder of Ohmyhome, share more about the special campaign, “At Ohmyhome, our users choose us to be a part of one of their most important journeys in their life – the purchase and sale of their beloved homes. What seems like a very transactional process on the surface, is actually filled with joyful and heart-warming stories beneath that are often unseen. Each time we step through the door into our clients’ homes, it is a brand new feeling, and each household has its own unique story,”
The founders add, “National Day has a very special place in our hearts. As the nation rallies together as one, we all reminisce about our days growing up, watch the breath-taking National Day fireworks together with our family. With Singapore’s 52nd birthday this month, our team came up with the idea to commemorate all the family stories from Ohmyhome users into Singapore’s largest comic strip. We wanted to tell these unique family stories in a light-hearted manner, to bring an element of fun and nostalgia to commuters when they are travelling to and from work. With the enormous comic strip, no matter which platform screen door a commuter stands at, they will always be reading something new. At the end of the day, we are immensely grateful to our Ohmyhome community and we hope that we can celebrate their stories together with the rest of Singapore.”
Ohmyhome will be spreading the festive cheer on Facebook as well, by running a daily contest from now to 23 August. They will be giving out cash prizes amounting to a total of SGD7,000.*
Each day, Ohmyhome will post a question onto their Facebook page, whereby the answer can only be found at a particular panel. The first person to comment on the Facebook post with a selfie with the correct panel will win SGD100; two other people will be selected based on the creativity of their answers and they will win SGD100 each as well. On 23 August, Ohmyhome will give out the grand cash prize of SGD1,000 to one lucky winner.
To participate in the daily contest, follow the steps below:
1. Like Ohmyhome Facebook Page (@ohmyhomesg)
2. Take a photo with the panel which has the answer on it and post it in the comment below.
3. First person to post the correct answer will win SGD100 cash
4. Two other winners will be chosen, based on the creativity of their answer, to win SGD100 cash each

‘SOUVENIRS FROM SINGAPORE’ EXHIBITION
From now till 20 August, UNIQLO partners with gallery shop Supermama in presenting ‘Souvenirs from Singapore’, an exhibition which feature objects that form an integral part of the Singaporean identity––the true souvenirs of Singapore. The exhibition, held at UNIQLO Orchard Central aims to recast these familiar entities in a new light by bringing them to the forefront of people’s minds.
Often coined as the unofficial ‘landmarks’ of Singapore, HDB (Housing Development Board) Homes are known by many as one of the world’s most fascinating public housing solutions but more significantly, they are special places where millions of Singaporeans endearingly call home.
From now till 31 August, in celebration of ‘Home’, UNIQLO is thrilled to partner with the artists behind the book: HDB: Homes of Singapore in organising a special, HDB-themed installation, which features photos of HDB homes, ‘real life’ set-ups of a typical home and styling inspirations for shoppers at UNIQLO Orchard Central.
This initiative was organised to encourage Singaporeans to appreciate their homes more and to spend more quality time at home with their loved ones. Dedication to quality; be it through time spent with friends and family or through the clothes that we wear to express ourselves, is a reflection of UNIQLO’s LifeWear philosophy in striving towards better quality clothing and a better life for everyone, everyday.
About HDB: Homes of Singapore
HDB: Homes of Singapore is a pictorial journey of photographs taken over a period of three years that portray the diversity, culture, individuality, colours and creativity within HDB homes, and it’s the brainchild of artist duo Eitaro Ogawa and Tamae Iwasaki of KEYAKISMOS, with architect Tomohisa Miyauchi. The book can be purchased at UNIQLO Orchard Central for SGD53.50, and it is the very first non-UNIQLO product ever available for sale in a UNIQLO store in Singapore.
WIN! STAYCATION WITH YOUR LOVED ONES
From now till 13 August, UNIQLO is treating five lucky shoppers to a ‘staycaytion’ worth $1,000 each at any hotel in Singapore of their choice – shoppers simply have to share photos of themselves on Instagram spending quality time with their loved ones at home, along with the hashtags #UNIQLOSG and #CelebrateHome to participate in this contest.
UNIQLO invites Singaporeans from now to 31 August to express their true, inner Singaporean ‘spirit’ at UNIQLO Bugis+ with their special collection of 52 quintessentially local icons designed by local illustrators The Fingersmith Letterpress and Festive Folks!

Raffles Hotel and the National Heritage Board (NHB) have announced that ‘A Last, Lingering Look at an Icon’, a specially-curated exhibition and guided tour, will run daily from 1 – 12 August, before the hotel commences the second phase of its restoration. Tours will be available to both guests and members of the public.
Guests and members of the public will be invited to walk through the marbled hallways of the National Monument, and delve deep into the illustrious tales encapsulated in this 130-year-old colonial beauty. Reminisce the hotel’s former beachfront and visit rooms that had once welcomed famous guests. The exhibition will include a recreation of the accommodations of one such guest – writer and Nobel Laureate, Rudyard Kipling, who stayed at the hotel in 1889. The recreation is based on Kipling’s recorded remarks of his stay in his travel log that he kept.
In addition, the elaborate menus of the events held at Raffles Hotel over the years offer a glimpse into the signature of these events. Visitors to ‘A Last, Lingering Look at an Icon’ will learn about the history of Raffles Hotel – and Singapore – through the crockery and food served at the Coronation of King George VI, and many others. Cheryl Ong, Director of Sales & Marketing, Raffles Hotel Singapore, said: “Raffles Hotel has long been an internationally well-loved icon of Singapore. We hope that the exhibition and tour will provide members of the public, guests, and friends of the hotel with the opportunity to take a last look at its captivating story through the years.”
Jean Wee, Director of the Preservation of Sites and Monuments (PSM) division under the National Heritage Board, said: “Raffles Hotel is a living monument that has witnessed Singapore’s history and development. Our exhibition and tours bring to life some of the many stories of prominent personalities who left their imprints here, as well as the historical significance of the hotel. Aside from admiring its architectural beauty, visitors will also have the opportunity to explore spaces which are rarely opened to the public, before the building enters a new chapter in its history.”
The exhibition is specially curated by the PSM division of the National Heritage Board and the tour is guided by its volunteers. Each tour accommodates 12, and tickets are priced at SGD12 and include a delectable souvenir.
