And so December begins with more exciting news!
Exactly a year ago in December 2010, i came to know about a particular brand of beer during my vacation at Singapore. It’s called Kronenbourg.
Kronenbourg 1664 is France’s top selling premium beer with 350 years of brewing heritage. Created in 1664, Kronenbourg is the 5th oldest beer brand in the world and it’s the only beer to win a gold medal in the International Brewing Awards, twice.
Now here’s a little trivia; In May 2008, Kronenbourg was acquired by Carlsberg Breweries and is now part of the S&N acquisition. And as France’s top selling beer, it is said that more than one out of every five beers sold in France is a Kronenbourg.
Hoongmao and i were surprised to find Kronenbourg 1664 back in Malaysia earlier this year. We were at The Hill and Hoong was very happy to be reunited with the beer that he tasted and love back in Singapore.
There are two types of Kronenbourg.
The Kronenbourg 1664 is a pale lager that comes in a green bottle. It has a golden hue and a bittersweet taste that has a hint of acidity. The beer aroma has a dominant scent of flowery hops, citrus fruits and malt aroma.
Then there is the Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc.
The Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc is a white beer that comes in a distinctive blue bottle. It contains hints of coriander and cloves with a balance of citrus and fruity flavours.
Personally, i find this beer especially aromatic and sweet. I found this little baby just a couple of months ago during a Halloween party at Bakita. I had a sip of Hoongmao’s Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc and i instantly said, “Can i have the whole bottle?”
Next thing i knew, i was going for a second bottle.
Halloween 2011 at Bakita
Kronenbourg beer is brewed using only the finest ingredients, which include the Strisselspalt hop, also known as the “caviar of hops”. It uses selected barley and pure water from the Vosges mountains.
In Malaysia, Kronenbourg is available at certain outlets such as:
- Bakita, Changkat Bukit Bintang
- La Bodega, Pavilion
- The Library
- The Hill
- The View, G Tower
And also at selected entertainment outlets in the Klang Valley, Penang, and Ipoh.
Whenever Hoongmao and i are at these outlets, our choice of beer would surely be Kronenbourg.
Now, here comes the main event.
On 15th December 2011, Kronenbourg will be hosting L’aperitif Fashion at The View, G Tower. L’aperitif Fashion is simply a glamourous version of happy hour combined with fashion featuring our very own local designer, Gallo by Thian .
Expect to see fashionable people all around, fine dining, display designs from Gallo by Thian and a makeup station by L’ancome. And of course, Kronenbourg 1664.
In courtesy of Kronenbourg, i will be giving away a pair of passes for L’aperitif Fashion happening on the 15th December 2011 at The View, G Tower.
All you gotta do is complete this:

I’m looking forward to seeing you guys at L’aperitif Fashion! I already have an outfit picked out and i can’t wait to wear it! :)
The concert is the 3rd annual global Arthur’s Day celebration which will feature Taio Cruz as the headline act. The full line up has also been confirmed and will feature Soler – a popular group from Macau, Mizz Nina, DJ Skeletor and The Kartel Group which includes Joe Flizzow, Dandee from Thailand and Take-T from Japan.

Well surprise, surprise!
I’ve never been to Arthur’s Day before and this year around, it’ll be my first time attending an Arthur’s Day party. It’s gonna be an exclusive invite-only party and the best part is that i’ll be giving away two pairs of passes to two of my most creative readers! :)
Here’s how. All you gotta do is tell me:
1. Where is Guinness originated from?
2. I want to attend Arthur’s Day 2011 because… (in 20 words or less)
Leave me your answers and contact details by dropping me a comment and i will pick two of the best answers by the end of the day!
Edit: Comments are closed, guys! Thanks for joining! I’ll be emailing the winners shortly :)
So which lucky reader will be chosen to receive this gift box?
Like i mentioned before, the winner for this giveaway will be chosen at random. So the fate of that person lies on the true random number generator on random.org.
I had to be very calculative about what number to insert into the generator cause after all, the whole process has to be fair.
Let’s do some calculations shall we. Out of 60 comments, i minused 8 replies from myself and one more from Megan L. So we’re left with 51 comments. I’m gonna insert a range of 1 to 51 in the generator and let it work its magic.
And the lucky number is..
I’ll be sending you an email very soon regarding your gift :)
And welcome back to jamiechin.com!
Oh how i’ve missed typing here! It’s been so long since i last blogged. It’s giving me a weird but familiar feeling.
So anyway, how are you guys? And what do you think about this new place?
I know it’s different from the previous layout. That’s cause i’ve always wanted a neat and minimal layout. Just so you know, i’ve packed some extra features in this blog to make it more interesting for you guys!
1. There’s more categories and tags
2. At the end of every post, there will be a thumbs up ‘like’ button. So even if you don’t comment, please feel free to abuse it and click LIKE!
3. There’s a new page on top, Ask. Feel free to drop my some questions there if you have any!
4. On the side bar, there’s a section called HYPE! This is for all the awesome shiz that i’m currently hooked on. It could be music, videos or events even.
5. I updated my portfolio. Now it’s arranged in gallery form.
6. Wider content space, which means bigger pictures!
And that’s about it!
So how’s my blog treating you so far?
I know we’re all eager to get to the part where i talk about what’s been going on since this place died. If you’re following me on Twitter, i suppose you’d have a slight idea on what i’ve been up to since.. February.
Well honestly, i just went mojo searching. It came to a point where i don’t enjoy blogging as much anymore. It felt like an obligation. So i took the chance to close my blog and reconstruct it while i live life the way i wanted to.
Over the months, i got to have a lot of me time. I only worked on my blog whenever i wanted to.
Slowly i found myself thinking to myself.. in blogging style. All the stuff that i could’ve shared. That’s when i knew that it’s time to return to my blog.
I spent a lot of my time with Hoongmao. I was at his office quite often, just minding my own business. Sometimes i would even head over there after classes with snacks for our tea break together.
Then on May, we hit the two year mark.
I got him a Masterpiece Optimus Prime. And i got to see him act like a little boy again.
My nights during my hiatus has been really enjoyable as well. As usual, it involved a lot of drinking. It was fun cause i didn’t have to care about taking pictures or whatsoever for blogging purposes, though i still took some pictures on some event nights.
Not to mention that i can repeat all my outfits and no one will know cause i didn’t take any pictures.
And then came exams.
Well, i did my best.
Results are gonna be released this week. I really hope that i’ll pass all my subjects. Cause i totally abused this semester by slacking almost everyday.
My skin got really bad.. and it’s still is. I keep sprouting zits and all sorts. At that time, i could blame it on my exams. But now that it’s over and my face is still like that, i really should stop being in denial.
And funny enough, i had job bookings right after my exams!
And i only had one day to get myself prepared. Trimmed my brows and dyed my hair, that kinda stuff.
I had a total of four bookings. I know it doesn’t sound a lot, but they were almost back to back okay. It felt like my skin and hair were crying in agony, telling me to please stop abusing them.
Obviously i didn’t.
And that’s what Jamie Chin’s been up to!
There’s more, but i’ll leave that to later cause i wouldn’t wanna run out of blogging material you know.
It’s not the end of this post yet.
You didn’t think i’ve forgotten about you guys after being away for so long right. Well as a homecoming gift, i’ll be giving all of these away to one of you!
Ahem, sorry guys. Got nothing manly for you :(
Anyway, all of these products are brand new! And three out of four products are bought with my own money, a couple even just for this giveaway. They’re all picked by me so i’ve put quite some love and effort into these items.
- MAC Beauty Powder in Summer Rose (limited edition)
- Shu Uemura Lip Duo Tint & Gloss in Love Apricot (limited edition)
- OPI Nail Lacquer in Got A Date To-Knight!
- Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto mascara
I also have a little box for these items. It will be wrapped and packaged with a nice pink ribbon too.
There terms are simple – just leave me a comment!
Include your name, email address and blog URL if you have one. It would also be great if you have me linked in your blog and are following me on Twitter :)
I will randomly select one lucky reader for this giveaway. Though it’s gonna be random, i do hope to give these to someone who has been loyal and sincere to my blog. I like to have real, sincere people around.
I will then deliver these items to one of you either personally or by mail, depending on you. Please note that i will need a couple of days to bubble wrap the items before sending it out if you choose to receive it by mail.
Also, please note that i reserve the right to change my mind about the chosen winner if that person appears to be rude and shit after being selected. Cause it sucks when people act like you “owe it” to them. I want my efforts to be appreciate too, you know!
Well, that’s about it!
Don’t forget to give me a thumbs up below and start dropping your comments! :)
I MISSED YOU GUYS!!
