Celebrated filmmaker Eric Khoo directs video for Okamoto’s latest campaign

The number one condom brand in Japan, Okamoto, has partnered with internationally-acclaimed Singaporean film director Eric Khoo to launch a campaign celebrating the female orgasm. The campaign features a 30-second video that seeks to capture the beauty of women at the height of their pleasure. Roping in Eric Khoo to direct this piece was a natural fit as sexuality has always been a strong and consistent theme in his movies (from his debut feature Mee Pok Man to 12 Storeys to Be With Me). Okamoto’s Singapore spokesperson, Mr Andy Ong, Managing Director, said, “Over the years sex has evolved from being a taboo topic – an obligation for women to reproduce – to something beyond that. The idea behind You’re Welcome is to celebrate strong, confident women of the 21st century who are unafraid to enjoy sex. And to all our male customers who care about their partner’s pleasure during sex, we’d like to say to them, ‘you’re welcome’.” Having produced and directed some rather controversial themed films, Eric Khoo said, “When the idea was …

MasterChef Asia Premiere 3 Sep 2015, 9pm on Lifetime

The MasterChef series is one of my favourite guilty pleasures when I am at home. I particularly like the Team Challenges, when the chefs are divided into two teams and have to prepare an entire menu of dishes for a large group of diners at an event. I also love the Mystery Box challenges. It’s interesting to watch the amateur chefs at work, and sometimes I am inspired to try out new dishes from what I see on the show. This is why I am quite excited to learn that the inaugural MasterChef Asia is debuting on Lifetime Channel this Thursday, 3 September. There are three Singaporean contestants on the show – Lennard Yeong, an engineer; Woo Wai Leong, a lawyer; and Sandrian Tan, a homemaker. Go Singapore go! Last Saturday, we watched a live cook-off between these three Singaporean contestants in Nex Shopping Mall. The judges, Susur Lee, Audra Morrice and Bruno Menard, were there as well, providing commentary about the dishes that the three contestants were preparing. The three contestants also answered the …
