Dylan & Joanne’s love story short film

Guess which little restaurant is in it! HEHE! That aside, touching story and very well-filmed.

Dylan & Joanne’s love story short film // Surprise from Alvinadeline & Co on Vimeo.

Dylan’s “love at first sight” face is epic! And we happen to think Joanne’s mum is sibeh chio (Joanne, don’t tell your Mum we said that. On second thought, OK TELL HER!) We remember poor Dylan having to drive up and down the street so many times just for that one shot where he passes by & reminisces in his convertible… LOL

In the past 7 years, we’ve been the background setting to one too many (okay, it’s never too many) first dates, first sightings, and hosted a number of solemnisations and wedding luncheons. We’re happy, honoured, humbled yet proud that an obscure little place like ours could be a part of your lives and loves.

Last year we wrote a long, rambling post on The Science of Romantic Love, and the year before we penned an original food-related love poem which we allowed all and sundry to steal. Generosity is our middle name.

This year we don’t have so much to say. Is it because 7-year-itch? Bahahaha

I guess all we want to say is thank you for loving us. We loves you too. Happy Valentine’s Day ♡ ♥

Be a little bit wiser baby, PUT IT ON, PUT IT ON

Make a Candle • Support the Underprivileged

candleIn India, 1 out of 12 girls who are born, die before their 1st birthday. By age four, 1 out of 4 are victims of sex abuse. Every day, 22 women and girls are killed by their husbands or husbands’ family after marriage.

Having a skill and a job is the FIRST step to a life of dignity. Daughters Of Tomorrow’s livelihood projects train and employ disadvantaged women in the Third World to make lovely products for sale in Singapore and internationally. Through skills acquisition and productive work, these women acquire a new sense of confidence and dignity previously denied due to socio-cultural and economic circumstances.

\o/ Yez! More bleeding-heart-socialists! We’re on a roll here!

The projects adhere to fair trade guidelines and work closely with local NGOs to make sure its beneficiaries are protected against any exploitation.
