So when 88.3Jia FM came calling with an exclusive invite for me to do brunch with their DJs at The Cornerstone restaurant at Bishan Park, to say the wifey was utterly envious was a severe understatement.
Actually, it was not just the DJs from 88.3Jia FM who were present at the brunch session. The DJs from its sister station, Power 98FM, were part of the fabulous host team too. Power 98FM should not be unfamiliar as it is an English cosmopolitan radio station that plays a wide range of music spanning from the 90’s favourites to today's hits. Targeting the fun-loving working adults, the station serves up a variety of everyday content - travel, food, movies, sports and more.
Among the bloggers invited, I think I must have been the oldest there. The rest were mostly female lifestyle bloggers and waaay young. How many can you recognize in the photo below?
But that's not to say I didn't enjoy the brunch. For one, the food served up at The Cornerstone was tantalising and its dessert table spread was a hit with all the ladies. And most importantly, I had the opportunity to chat with with the very friendly SAFRA Radio DJs - Jamie Yeo, Sonja, Mister Young & Jacqui from Power98FM and Robin & Kai Ying, Lina & Jia Ming (who were in some cool biker outfits by the way) from Jia88.3 FM.
They took turns to pop by the various tables in the restaurant and were just so warm and approachable. I shared with them what my blog was all about, and they in turn shared some very interesting anecdotes about their respective shows.
And here's a brief introduction to the respective DJs' shows:
Start each weekday with a healthy breakfast and a dose of current affairs and everything else thrown in with Sonja, Jason and Jamie on the Power Breakfast Show. Find out what's going viral on #Trending every Wednesday, reminiscence about the past on Throwback Thursdays and get some goodies for yourself on Freebie Fridays. Plus, daily segments like Mandarin for Dummies, Thought of the Devi and Heroes not Zeroes will keep you entertained and in-the-know as you start your day. Tune in to The Power Breakfast Show, Weekdays, 6am – 10am only on Power 98FM.
The Ex-Factor is the first radio show of its kind in Singapore. Every dirty secret, bad habit, and button to push? They know it, and aren’t afraid to use it. You’ll get to hear Mister Young and Jacqui take it out on each other, in their own quirky way. They'll let you know things you maybe didn't know already in That's a Thing & simplify your life with Life Hacks! Listen out for their spoof songs in #ExesSpoof plus, the adventures of Bee Geok & Geok Bee - they'll entertain you with the ups & downs of typical Singaporean couple in a relationship! Tune in to The Ex-Factor, weekdays 4pm – 8pm on Power 98FM.
