Pictures fresh from the omy.sg public launch event which ended at 6pm today. Overall, I had fun planning and organising this event. The turnout was good considering the sweltering heat.
The only spoiler was a crowd of over enthusiastic people who were there to accumulate bags after bags of the prizes and freebies we were giving out. Their thirst for freebies is insatiable! A few stayed all the way from 12 noon to 6 pm, repeatedly queuing to get the same freebies. Each time, they kept insisting it was the first time they queued – even though our staff recognised their faces! Very thick-skinned lei!
Even when security guards were deployed to politely ask them to stop queuing repeatedly, they refused to barge and will hang around to whine and complain. My colleague told me these freebies snatchers are “professionals” who go out in groups every weekend to do this sort of things. Sad lei. Is this something uniquely Singapore?
Anyway, enough whining from me. Here are the photos I took at the event. Enjoy! 🙂
Welcome! We dare you to have fun!
