Sunday, October 5

Went for Channel 8's brandnew evening belt relaunch 狮城有约 + 118 媒体招待会 held in Bedok Mall yesterday at 2.30pm. These were the celebrities who went for the event - Guo Liang, QiQi, Jianwen, Youyi, Chew Chor Meng, Pan Ling Ling, Chong Qing, Yahui, Xu Bin, Somaline Ang, Liu Lingling, Chen Tian Wen, Nick Teo, Carrie Wong, Dawn Yeoh, Charles Lee, Chen Han Wei, Sheila Sim, Cavin Soh, Priscelia Chan, and Sora Ma! 

The place was already filled with crowd when I reached. Rather disappointed that the distance between the stage and audience were quite far apart. Thus, I expected lesser interaction with the celebrities

I managed to watch an exclusively preview a 15-minute live segment of Hello Singapore and a《118》showreel. For the new segment of Hello Singapore, it will be different as what you see as before with its new features and appearance injected. 

As for the 《118》, This drama offers a light-hearted social commentary on current topics. It feature a host of heartland characters such as homemakers and blue-collar workers, and aims to reflect their concerns and sentiments. I thought that it was rather interesting concept as hot topics and current issues can be incorporated into the story-line. 

It was not easy taking photos with the stage arrangement presented. Thus, I did not take all the celebrities who were there despite trying. 

Do take note of Channel 8's new timing starting from 20 October 2014!
