New App: J Passport (2017)

Evening peeps! It's Sunday. Sorry for the delay on the posting. I have been doing many things recently, planning for my upcoming Japan trip, preparing presents for my Japanese class and getting Christmas presents for my fellow Japanese AirBnb friends and etc;. I will do a short video on what I got for them shortly this coming week, so do check out my Youtube channel! In this post, I will be sharing my review on a new application on Apple Store and Google play.

J Passport is a new application that covers everything Japanese in Singapore! From hair salons to delicious Japanese foods! I was introduced to the app by Can-san (ケンさん) whom is also my senior whom studied at Ikoma years ago. Anyway, this app is free to download and doesn't cost you any money to create an account!

J Passport enables you to enjoy deals from many Japanese restaurants and you can earn points from your meals. The points earned can be exchanged for free meals the next time! On my recent visit, I had dinner at Ginza Bairin (銀座梅林) which is one of the merchants participating in the J Passport programme. I had the Chicken Katsu Curry Don which only cost me S$10.00 with the application. It's really a good deal, the usual price for the don is S$15.00.

There are other good deals available which I have yet to use. I hope I can find time to utilise them and show you guys here on my blog. Below are some of the screenshots of the app in use.

Various pages on the app

So far, I been using the app for about a week or so. There are still many things to browse and I hope my review on the app will make you want to download the app too. I have come to the end of this really short post. I have put down the link to the website below. Do go browse it when you have time! And do not forget to drop by soon for another weekly update!

Newton Challenge 2017

Evening peeps! It's Sunday, I am back for another weekly update. Anyway, sorry for the late update. I have just finished my long awaited Newton Challenge run this morning. This is my 2nd Newton Challenge Run.

This year race took place at Gardens by the Bay but the race village was located in Marina Barrage, same location as last year. The walk to the starting pen is not too long, good enough for a warm up. I had a good run though halfway, my stomach hurts as I think it's my stomach flu which acted up since Friday. But was glad to finish the race within 2 hours and 30 mins.

Along the way, the running route was spotted with sufficient water points and toilets at East Coast and Gardens by the Bay really helped a lot. Finishers for the race enjoyed a tasty breakfast by Delihub and was treated with a finisher polo tee, finisher medal, wet towel and Pocari Sweat drink. I totally enjoyed myself. The race village also sees performance by Singaporean live bands and lucky draw which featured Ipad and Apple watch.

Pineapple fried rice, apple, banana, beancurd...I ate the ice cream which is quick to melt. :X

Finisher entitlement!

I didn't managed to go to the collection expo held last week as I was in Bangkok for my birthday trip. My friend helped me to collect on my behalf. This year's race collection expo was held at Velocity, Novena. Runners are entitled to a pair of running socks, running singlet, personalised race bib and vouchers from various sponsors. The race pack comes in this purplish-navy recyclable bag.

Breakfast at Mcdonald's because I didn't ate the breakfast given.

Overall, I am glad with the race experience. Pink Apple really did a good job as usual. I hope they would bring back the Pocari Sweat Run soon as I missed them! The race registration only cost me S$50.00 as I am a loyalty runner. With this amount, I got a lot of freebies which are deemed useful! Socks, singlet, polo tee and foods! Omg, I guess not many races can offered these goodies these days. I guess I will continue with the franchise next year too! Cheers!

My finisher medal and MBS, so pretty!

My race result, didn't hit PB but managed it under 2 hours 30 mins. Lucky?

Really need to credit @Epalite - Running Shots for this wonderful photo!
