Hello guys!

So you may or may not know that National Day is coming! I love National Day. Well, I loved it more last year because it fell on a Monday. This National Day is on a Saturday. What gives man?! But you know, I still love it all the same. Just, slightly less. But more about that in another blog post. Anyway, I was extremely excited to get a media invite to this great event, called "Go Red this National Day with M&M's®".

It was a very awesome event where us cool Singaporean folk could go down to their event at Plaza Singapura and play a part in building the largest Singapore flag made out of M&Ms. So this was the flag before it got filled up with good chocolate.

It measured 2.7m wide and 1.8m tall, and had space for 17,000 M&M lenthils (and yes, because of this event, I now know that the individual M&M candy coated chocolates that melt in the mouth and not in the hand are known as "lenthils")
Ms Chiek Ming Ong, Country Manager for Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore, Mars Inc had the honour of putting the final M&M lenthil onto this awesome flag. What a cool job. I too want to work for M&M's and organise cool events like this.
And you know, this creation aka the world's largest and most delicious Singapore flag went into the Singapore Book of Records. And I would like to say that I contributed to this record breaking feat. See? Proof.
As you can tell, I very enthusaistically wore red and white to the event. As you know, I love National Day very much. Sadly, I was the only one in red and white apart from the M&M's staff. Also, I met my friends for dinner after that and they were laughing at my get up.
Anyway, here's the completed flag! Isn't it something? 
Made out of chocolate and took 7 days to complete, this awesome flag will be displayed at SAFRA Mount Faber for their Nation’s 49@MF event which is open to the public on 9 August aka National Day itself. So do check it out if you have the chance to.

Anyway, in line with the "Go Red this National Day with M&M's®" campaign, I would like to highlight that I took part in the "Go Red for Women" campaign three years back. I forgot what exactly I did, but here is a picture of my friend Jason thanking me. He is good this Jason.
And now I'd like to leave you with some pictures of me with the M&M mascots! 
(Do follow M&M's on Facebook for more photos/updates).

Cheers!
