In conjunction with its 10th year of operations , EZ-Link will be introducing two Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Campaigns to give back to society. EZ-Link will be working with the People’s Association (PA) to provide assistance to 5,000 low income families and individuals.

For the first campaign, EZ-Link would be donating $250,000 to the EZ-Link PAssion Cares! Fund, a donation-specific fund under the People’s Association Community Development Fund. The monies would be distributed in the form of $50 transport credit for 5,000 needy families identified by PA’s grassroots organizations.

Fund, with a target of achieving a total contribution of $100,000. The contribution will go towards supporting meaningful community initiatives that will help the less privileged in our community.

Mr Yam Ah Mee, Chief Executive Director, PA shared, “EZ-Link’s contribution exemplifies the Many Helping Hands approach, where the more able in the community, including companies and individuals, come together to help less privileged Singaporeans holistically through meaningful community programmes. As a Project We Care network company, EZ-Link’s efforts will go a long way in encouraging more like-minded organisations to come forward and do more for our community.”

Apart from the above donations, EZ-Link has also initiated or participated in several other CSR projects this year, including the President’s Challenge 2012 ‘Tap and Donate’ campaign where ez-link cardholders could conveniently tap their cards at top-up and acceptance points around the island to make donations towards the President's Challenge.

The collaboration between EZ-Link and the PA started with the launch of the PAssion ez-link card in November 2009. It is the first membership card incorporated with the ez-link CEPAS purse in Singapore. The PAssion ez-link Card is both an ez-link card and a card that gives its members special rates for all courses, activities and facilities at Community Centres, along with privileges/discounts at over 1,000 PAssion Merchant outlets.

Stay tune till 28th December 2012 for the full version of this song and music video.


词:方文山 曲:周杰伦


公公他偏头痛 公公他偏头痛 说银两不够重 公公公 公公公 公公
公公他污很凶 公公他污很凶 那军饷被掏空 后宫有 佳丽三千 却不能碰

紧挨着灯笼 这十年苦读无人能懂 春夏秋冬
无奈这夜晚寒风却穿透了屏风 吹几页刺客列传我澹定背诵
平仄先搞懂诗词歌赋才能够通 书法的篆隶楷行草乃是基本功
过眼的繁华朝代更迭来去匆匆 法家的内容 道家的从容 儒家的宽容 这些都该懂

我是个穷秀才 中状元考进来 却一直状况外 被宦官所陷害
那公公的人脉 遍五湖通四海 大内的高手坏 砸朝廷的招牌

公公他偏头痛 公公他偏头痛 说银两不够重 公公公 公公公 公公
公公他污很凶 公公他污很凶 那军饷被掏空 后宫有 佳丽三千 却不能碰


我进京赶考 免不了学而时习之的 摇头晃脑
东方的琴棋书画比西方有情调 弹琵琶古筝我的调调给力重要
再感谢各位乡亲还有父父老 提供我盘缠设宴款待外加水饺
老子我读了老子老聃出关逍遥 我说道可道 你说非常道 我说风萧萧 你说你知道

我是个穷秀才 说道理明黑白 在朝中如尘埃 没人理有人爱
不畏惧当权派 上奏摺硬着来 那公公站起来 整个人快气坏

公公他偏头痛 公公他偏头痛 说银两不够重 公公公 公公公 公公
公公他污很凶 公公他污很凶 那军饷被掏空 后宫有 佳丽三千 却不能碰

公公公公公公 公公公他不靠谱 百姓们在歌颂 他下台一鞠躬(躬)
公公公公公公 公公公他不靠谱 百姓们在歌颂 他下台一鞠躬 他下台一鞠躬 他下台一鞠躬

Wreck-It ralph Movie Review

Wreck-It ralph Movie Review:
Childhood arcade game till present animation in 3D, Wreck-It ralph movie brings you back to childhood memories. Wreck-It ralph movie started up with a fantasy and creative introduction which able to catch audience attention easily. I like the way how they used pixel and stop motion effect to present in this movie.

He is not as "Bad" as you think

In Wreck-It Ralph movie, you will see your childhood favourite game character and also if you are an arcade fans, you will definitely love it. Despite of being “Good” or “Bad” character in this movie, at the end of the day, you will learn what is “Good” side of bad guy and “Bad” side of bad guy too. Well, “sometimes a little "bad" in life is good.” I rate Wreck-It ralph Movie 3.5/5 stars.

So what is my favourite game character? Answer is… RALPH! Hahaha I like Bad guy uh? But you tell me which guy on earth not BAD? Hehe… Reason why I like Ralph is because he is tall, huge and strong. Although he is known as the “Bad guy” but I believe that he has a kind heart to help the others.

Wreck-It Ralph Movie will be officially release on 20th December 2012 in Singapore cinema theatre. Do catch the movie because it going to make your day awesome and memorable! For your additional information, you may want to take part in the ‘Candy Cane Catapult’ game on Disney Studios Singapore Facebook Page. Follow @disneystudiosSG and subscribe to the Official Disney Studios Singapore YouTube Channel!

Wreck-It ralph Movie Synopsis:
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers”) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, “30 Rock”), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day.

But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade.

Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on December 20, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Food Review: Dian Xiao Er (店小二) Restaurant

Hi Readers! Today I am going to share yummy Chinese food here and do check out for the giveaway contest at the end of the post too! Last week, I was invited to the Dian Xiao Er Restaurant located at Serangoon Nex shopping mall to try out their traditional Signature dishes.

This was my second time in life stepped into Dian Xiao Er Restaurant and I totally love the professional and traditional of the Chinese style interior design decoration at Nex outlet. It’s ambient look just like a realistic Inn (客栈) which you often see in China drama.

It was a fruitful evening to catch up with my great food tasting blogger friends! Through the food tasting session, we had tried out their top listed signature dishes – The Herbal Roast Duck and Hot Favorites dishes such as Roast Lamb Grassland Style, Claypot Pork Belly with Salted Fish, Wheatgrass Tofu, Spicy & Sour Fresh Fish Slices, Baked Fresh Prawns and etc…

One of the favourite foods I like from Dian Xiao Er was the Herbal Roast Duck! Well, I must admit that I am a very herbal person, the duck meat was tasteful and tender with the herbal flavor. Hence, the signature dish – Herbal Roast Duck are available in three flavours; Angelica Herb (当归), Ten Wonder Herbs (十全) & Wild Ginseng (泡参). Price for a small portion (approx. 2-3pax servings) starts from $12.90++ only.

Deep Fried Kailan with Floss

Claypot Pork Belly with Salted Fish - Thinly sliced pork belly served in claypot with shallots, dried chilli, ginger & salted fish. The salted fish is specially selected for its fragrance. This savoury dish goes very well with almost everything even if it’s a bowl of plain rice.

Sweet Pea & Celery with Cuttlefish

Spicy & Sour Fresh Fish Slices - A drizzle of our chef’s special Spicy & Sour Sauce over the fresh Tioman fish slices. A great accompaniment for those who likes bold flavours.

Roast Lamb Grassland Style - A mouth-watering dish served over hotplate. The lamb is tender and well marinated with spices. A sizzling sound from this dish announcing its arrival will keep guests deep in anticipation for the first bite.

Baked Fresh Prawns JiangNan (Gangnam) - Style Juicy & succulent River King Prawns, sautéed with wine, butter & herbs. Truly a delight among seafood lovers.

Overall, I enjoyed my dining with group of blogger friends at Dian Xiao Er Restaurant Nex outlet. As in line with health promotion board for healthier living, Dian Xiao Er will be providing 2 slices of Watermelon for the month of December 2012. All you have to do is to show them that you have LIKE the Dian Xiao Er Facebook Fan Page and you get the 'dessert' after your meal.
