2012 marks my fourth Shape Run, and this year’s atmosphere was by far the most electric. Maybe it was the fine, cloudless weather we were blessed with. Or perhaps the addition of male pacers – some donning wacky wigs for comic relief – did the trick. Whatever the reason(s), I’m chuffed that Shape Run 2012 was a roaring success.
The Peak held its much anticipated third golf tournament on 15 May, 2012 at one of the finest golf courses in Singapore – the Tanah Merah Country Club Garden Course.
Aimed to foster greater interaction with and among readers of The Peak, it proved to be the perfect mix of fun and some serious competition, fostering new friendships and strengthening of old ones.
Two months ago, I was enjoying dinner with one of our food panelists and conversation led to an American reality show that takes shots at debunking common myths and perceptions.
In one of the episodes, the TV crew of the series essentially took over the running of a fine dining restaurant. And just for one night, diners were served microwave-heated bread instead of fresh oven-baked ones; frozen meat from a supermarket was used instead of cuts from the restaurant’s usual artisanal source; handpicked tomatoes were replaced with preserved tomatoes fresh – from a can – and diners sipped tap water thinking it was natural spring water.
The outcome, was surprising. At the end of dinner, none of the guests at this posh restaurant knew any better.
