SINGAPOPERA BY SINGAPOREAN ROYALTY DICK LEE – A MUST SEE!

SINGAPOPERA, a celebration of the musicals of Dick Lee spanning 30 years of theatrical productions, is a ferociously enjoyable show. Truth be told, I was never one to take interest in the local theatre/musical scene and after all the talent I witnessed last night, I must admit regret not having done so sooner. Every performance was stupendously good. From dynamic vocals to showmanship, these musical geniuses made us laugh, cry, sing along and most of all, they made us PROUD. 

I feel obliged to refer to Dick Lee as Sir Dick Lee from now on. When he jokingly referred to himself as Asia’s Andrew Lloyd Webber during the show, I couldn’t help but agree with him. After all, the man is arguably one of the most successful composers in this part of world. We all know the words to Fried Rice Paradise and Home. Most of us have sung along to Bunga Sayang at some point on our lives. Let’s just say, his songs have left an impact on us over the last 30 years and hearing them live in a span of 2 hours is nothing short of phenomenal; not forgetting the theatrics thrown into each performance. To single out one would be too difficult. But some of my favourites include Now China has a son performed (Benjamin Chow), Look a little closer (Dwayne Lau), When all the tears have dried (Alemay Fernandez) and Bunga Sayang by the entire cast.

I could go on about SINGAPOPERA for days but I think I’ve said enough. There’s much to be missed if you don’t grab your tickets now!

curves and silhouettes but each design is a classic form-fitting numbers that will by no
means go out of trend.

many fashion shows in Singapore,and joined few International fashion week, such as – “Miami

and the label became renowned.

Agragrami clothes are very feminine, and they flatter the female silhouette.

With Mikhadi, we elaborated on the requirements of the Indian climate and created a fashion

KnowMe 2018 – Get to Know Rare Disorders Society of Singapore (RDSS) with iROO

It was one the rarest moments in my life; meeting with the families of RDSS opened my eyes to a world ALL of us should learn more about and certainly become involved in. I was in awe of the strength and resilience these family members displayed. Our daily struggles are nowhere close to theirs, yet all I saw was hope, tenacity and fulfilment on each of their faces. It’s experiences like these that give me a whole new perspective on what’s important and what’s not. And this is why I choose to be part of the iROO/RDSS KnowMe2018 Campaign Drive.



Why Support this Cause?

RDSS members are faced with several issues such as insults and criticism hurled at them or people simply avoiding them believing that patients with rare diseases are contagious etc. Only when the members from RDSS get together do they feel stronger and motivated by each other. Can you imagine being on the receiving end of such negativity all because people don’t know enough? Isn’t that sad and frustrating to say the least? This is why spreading the word and  learning as much as we can about rare disorders and doing what we can to raise awareness is so critical. We can grow and see change only when we do our part to make it happen. 

Only $6.80 for a great cause at iROO stores islandwide
iROO Limited Edition ‘Know Me’ Charity T-shirt

Want to play your part and fun have doing it?
An outing to the Jurong Bird Park will be held on 5 May also to honour all mothers from RDSS families in conjunction with Mother’s Day.  The nett proceeds from the sale of the Charity T-shirts will also be officially donated to RDSS on this day.  The media is invited to join us for this closing event. Do come!

About RDSS
The Rare Disorders Society (Singapore) is currently the only organisation focusing and supporting only on rare disease patients in Singapore. Unlike other charities that focus on specific disease group or made rare genetic disease as one of the supported group, RDSS accepts and supports ALL patients currently diagnosed with rare diseases, including those undiagnosed cases.

There’s so much good work to be done and tons of fun to be had doing it. We hope you come onboard, lend a hand and learn while you’re at it!

Listen to your HEART

We listen to all the ‘noise’ we hear from the outside everyday. Whether we realise it or not, we listen to the books we read, the friends we talk to, the movies and videos we watch, the ads we stumble upon and the news. We may block some of it out, but we get influenced to a small or large extent depending on where we are in life and THAT is the biggest irony because the ONE thing we should listen to more than anything else is our heart.
