The Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Director of Design Giles Taylor explains in an interview on YouTube the car model naming decision of the Wraith that is shown today at the Geneva Motor Show. According to him the reason the name Wraith suits the new car model so well is “this sense of fleeting – the fleeting spirit, slightly ethereal, slightly enigmatic”. I should include the official meaning of the word wraith (according to the Oxford Dictionary):
a ghost or ghostlike image of someone, especially one seen shortly before or after their death.
the original Wraith model by Rolls-Royce from 1938
Have a look at the trailer to have a glimpse of it!
AFTERIMAGES, a collection of five short horror stories that unfold when a group of students burn paper effigy cameras for the wandering spirits during the ghost month and they receive films in return.
What do I have to say about this movie?
I would say its quite a nice local film. But at one part of the show I felt the ghost was not that realistic. An omission of it would be better for the show. And the main casts didn't act much actually because the show was distributed into 5 different short stories which were acted by some other people. The main casts only appeared at the beginning and end of the show, and intermissions between the short stories. Good effort though! Because the I got frightened a few times... so is my partner who went along with me. :P
After about 3-4 hrs ride on the bus.. we finally arrived at the Julie's Factory - Perfect Food Manufacturing. This is just one of their factory.. but its the Main one.
We were guided to their Julie's Café for a lunch..
with their Director, Mr Martin Ang.
a buffet styled food were served..
I'm hungry.. can't wait to eat already..
Oh i'm starting on the dessert first.
Probably I can't wait to queue.. I go by the other way round. haha..
These are wad I got... The brown cake and the biscuits with fruits n choc on top are nice.
Probably I will do that for my guests next time. Its easy to make and it taste well! ;)
On the table we spotted these very cute bottles of mineral water.. and took a picture of it.
After lunch.. all of us were guided to the meeting room for a "CONFERENCE"!
Well, its just a brief introductory of Julie's before we head to visit their factory.
Look at the fellow bloggers who were so attentive and captivated by the presenter.
This is one of the presenter Cathy Hoo.. who gave us an introduction to Julie's.
Later we have to put on this suit before we enter the factory.. its for hygiene purpose.
I don't really look good in this.. cos I wore stripes inside. ha..
After the factory visit.. we were back in to this room, and Mr Martin Ang, director of Julie's gave us a better understanding of Julie's. He mentioned "What we don't eat, we don't let people eat", they live by this company's philosophy to succeed!
Over here... each of us were given this gift which is to promote "THE BEST OF YOU" campaign organised by Julie's.
THE BEST OF YOU!
Its a social movement by Julie's which hopes to celebrate everyday heroes and spur on a more gracious and appreciative community!
The movement calls for the public to share their stories of personal experiences that have brought out the BEST in them!
Here's a story of Janice.
There are quite a few videos on YouTube. But I would just share this here.. as I think this is the best and relates to most of us.
Inside the box..
More information on how you can participate in the movement can be found at
Here's a group photo with all the bloggers with the staffs of Julie's
Mr. Martin Ang (Director of Julie's) presenting each of us the gifts from Julie's.. :)
And these are the gifts!
My family will have a good time enjoying them!
By the way.. Why is it called Julie?
I guess many might ask and wanna know the answer.
Here's the answer.
People normally perceive Julie an to be a girl with secret recipe and baked biscuits full of love.
Their founder was looking for a name that is universal and easy to remember which is accepted both locally and internationally. Hence, he chose Julie's instead of having a Chinese name like some local manufacturers that u may heard of.
From the start, he had the mindset to expand his love for biscuits and to distribute biscuits baked with love locally and internationally! And that's how Julie's came about! :)
I personally felt that it is good to have this name as they can sell their products to both locally and internationally. If your product name is after a Chinese name, it might be abit hard to sell in those European countries for example.
After this trip.. I get to learn more about Julie's biscuits and had an experience going through a biscuit factory. I even tried on one of their products (Peanut Butter Sandwich) while its still warm after they have packaged it! Good experience! Having tried more of their biscuits, I really find that Julie's Biscuits are nice! And I even brought some to my office so that I can have them when I'm hungry! :)
These are the biscuits I brought to office..
Sometimes I work overtime.. I can have them! ;)
An Advertisement I spotted outside while on my way home at Dhoby Ghaut.. promoting the movement The Best Of You by Julie's!
Here's another one I spotted on my way to work..
and this is along Havelock Rd.
At Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.
What do I have to say for this campaign?
I hope everyone will take some time.. just a few minutes to think through who made the best out of your life. Do not take anything or Anyone for granted.

I was quite surprise when my friend told me they have this solution to get your six packs. ha..

Storyderm - Red Ginseng Silk Mask.
I always find that bringing some masks when you go for holiday or overseas is good.. becos you can do some facial during the free time in the hotel at night! ;)
If you think that facial mask is not enough... you can go for this facial therapy from Lumi-Oxy.
They also have testimonials from Celebrities like Clarence Lee.
The have MENSCIENCE too!
Besides all the facial products.. they also have fragrance like Ermenegildo Zegna.
Doing my shopping at the store...
And I found this.. Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer. ha..
I think its really good.. becos you don't have to pluck your nose hair if its too long.. its very pain to pluck and might not be good for your nose as the walls inside your nose are very soft and sensitive, hence you might hurt your nose. The best is to cut/trim it.. and this Platinum XL helps to trim your nose hair.. I might be getting it! ;)
Ah.. guess i might be getting this... ha..
Kyokubody lotion and scrub - I tried this before and I like the woody fragrance that it has! Winner of Men's Health Geooming Awards.
These are what I bought that day..
Two Kyoku body wash (one for my brother's bday present ;) from Fire range.. which is the woody fragrance that I like, one body scrub from Water and one daily face wash from MenScience.
Ready to go..
they still provide a nice bag which I don't look awful with it. ha..
