Lazada Singapore’s Blogger Bazaar

I was fortunate to score an invite to the first ever Lazada Bloggers Bazaar in Singapore last Friday! Lazada is a prominent online retailer of all sorts of goodies ranging from clothes to electronics in asia, so I was pretty excited to see what they had in store for us for first dibs.

Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar at Orchard Gateway Hotel Jen on 22 January 2016.

I like electronics just as much as I like clothes (although my blog archives may present plenty of evidence to the contrary), so this post may lean a little heavy on all the shiny metals and plastics. For example, I got to pit my horrid centre of gravity against the Ninebot Hoverboard!

It’s a very sensitive machine which detects slight body movements in order to move in whichever direction you’re leaning towards. The kind staff was very patient reminding me not to consciously counterbalance, and I have a feeling he’d been repeating the same phrase over and over again. 😂

The first booth Ottie and I stopped at was actually at the toys and baby products. I was originally lured by the Play Doh and My Little Pony figurines, but stayed for the baby wipes and milk powder. Ottie got a little scared because I stayed at the booth for so long, but I assure anyone reading that the both of us have no intention of spawning mini-me’s anytime soon. I’m just the kind of person who buys comforters from the kids’ section at the department store for myself. Anyway, moving on.

Bimbosan organic baby milk powder from Switzerland at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.Bimbosan organic baby milk formula is a leading Swiss product, and comes in many varieties! I was very impressed when I asked if there were any for lactose-intolerant infants (because asians), and the knowledgable staff assured me with some of the colour-coded sample packets which indicated the type I was looking for.

BeBeSup baby wipes from Korea at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.BeBeSup baby wipes from Korea were also featured, and as a germaphobe, I needed to know more. The staff were also kind enough to give me a sample packet of the Sheer Gold! The thickness of the wipes and pleasantly bland odour felt very reliable and comforting to me.

BB-8 remote controlled toy at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.BB-8 was also seen running around bumping into unsuspecting people’s feet. It was cute, but I had to constantly quell the urge to stomp on it.

Q-gadget KB01 futuristic keyboard at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.The UPQ Touch Panel Keyboard looked like it came from the future! Ottie and I had a go at typing on it, but while I appreciate the easy cleaning of the component, my very clammy hands won’t allow me to accurately utilise it. :(

Quadcoptor drone with 4K camera at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.This DJI Phantom 3 quadcoptor with a built-in 4K camera on a stabiliser was pretty neat! Too bad there wasn’t enough space for a demonstration – I’d have loved to see it in action.

Watches and accessories at the Lazada Singapore's Blogger Bazaar.

We were encouraged to spin the wheel before commencing lunch, and so we did:

And then we had lunch. Having gorged on McBreakfast just a couple hours earlier, Ottie and I didn’t have much of an appetite, so we attacked the variety of salads spread out. It was delicious. What was even more delicious was the minestrone soup and a very juicy bread when dipped in it. I couldn’t not help myself to a second serving. It was that good.

Outfit-wise, I wore something I could cover up in a shawl and still look decent, because I had to go back to work to meet an external partner. Turns out the first thing my partner said to me was to exclaim how I was so pretty. I didn’t know how much I usually dress down for work until then. 😂

Oh, and Ottie won a lucky draw prize. I was joking about how much I wanted to win the Play Doh set (for myself), but someone else had the luck before us, and then Ottie’s name was called next for this next prize. It was amusing to say the least.

We both hold a twisted brand of humour, and the only difference between the both of us is that I have the good sense not to show it in public. Pft.

Anyway, Lazada is celebrating the upcoming year of the monkey by having a site-wide Go Bananas sale on 26 January 2016! Check out the link for more details – there’s even a digital spin-the-wheel and monkey hunt for bonus deals. I wonder how far they’re taking the monkey puns, but I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled tomorrow (geddit geddit).
