Sight. Sound. Taste. Touch.
Philips did a very impressive job with their latest “Indulge Your Senses – Exclusive Blogger Event”; it was a complete holistic experience.
The Scarlet Hotel was a sight to behold. I’ve been there once before for another event and since then, it has become one of my favourite hotels in Singapore. It is THE boutique hotel and is very very lavishly decorated with elaborate Victorian-styled furniture of course in Scarlet.

The Victorian-styled furniture provided a rustic charm and made me feel as though I was back in the quaint castles of ancient Queens; it oozed luxury from every corner. Naturally, with such a prime location for its event, you could only expect the best from Philips.
Im sorry. Did the limousine out front distract you? Philips left no stone unturned. They even hired a stretch limousine for the event! A Lotus Limousine no less! Wo0o0o0o0ot!
On top of that, its guest list was topped with all your favourite good-looking bloggers to compliment the hotel’s wonderful setting.
Although I was
a tad late for the event, I managed to catch a group in the TV lounge trying out the Philips Flat TV by hooking it up to a Wii!
I took a crash course in the temporary “sound” room while the others experienced the Flat TV’s high quality pictures and fought their battles on screen on the Wii console. It was 3-on-1 as three lovely ladies gave me a quick overview of their newest audio product in the consumer range.
No, not the object on screen left. To the right. To the RIGHT.
Bluetooth has brought convenience to our fingertips. And now we can employ wonderful Bluetooth technology to our music, in our homes.
Got songs in your phone, in your iPod and even CD but want different songs from each of them at any one point? Well this machine can help to synchronise all three at the same time for you at the TOUCH of ONE button! SUPER COOL. And you can even use it to answer your calls because of it’s built-in mic! Talk on your phone hands-free anywhere in your room! HAHA.

I really kinda like this product. It’s mighty useful if you’re gonna have your partner over ALONE and need some songs to set the ambiance. *ahem ahem* These crucial songs you need might not always be kept in the same playlist. So what better way to secretly change from one gadget to the other via the touch of a button. BWAHAHAHAHA. Viola! The perfect romantic setting FOR A VALENTINE’S DAY DINNER. I hope you werent thinking of something else. Haha!
Then came the highlight of the night – a ride in the luxury limo where we had a blind sound test to experience the enhanced FullSound™ sound quality of Philips mp3 players.
It was quite obvious that the limo was a rare sight on the road of Singapore because anywhere we passed on our short spin in the limo was met with lots of head-turns from passers-by and cameras being whipped out as if Brat Pitt was walking naked on the roads.
And soon, we were whisked back to the hotel and into the last room where all the girls cheered happily.
I, honestly, do not believe that there is not one woman on the planet who is not concerned about the way she looks. Ignoring the fact that everyone has their own subject views of what beauty is, for instance, you may think that orange eyeshadow matched with blue eyelashes and purple lipstick are the ideal makeup for a first date to a fancy restaurant, with all due respect, you’re still very much into beauty.
We got a lesson from experts in the beauty industry – hair experts and an expert from L’oreal! They were there to talk about taking a leaf out of the pages of them glossy beauty magazines and teaching us how to “steal” those hairstyles!
Adjustable settings on your hair curlers/tongs is always good because it cuts down a lot of time waiting for your curling iron to get hot. Instead of holding it to your head and waiting almost 2 minutes for your hair to get curls, you can get your hair done in a jiffy! I might be getting me one of these handy contraptions because I’ve wanted to do temporary curls for special events but never had the patience to wait for the hair to curl. With high temperature settings, I can get luscious locks in a snap!
In the experts’ safe hands, Sabrina, who was the “guinea pig” for our group, got her curls in about 15 to 20 minutes!
At the end of the day, all the bloggers left with gorgeous curls, beaming smiles and wonderful memories captured beautifully on credit card sized print-outs. I had so much fun meeting up with familiar faces and saying “Hi” to new ones.
And of course, what’s a successful event without a goody bag? With an mp3 player for each blogger.
One that fits in the palm of your hand. Awesome.
