With a theme focused on progressing 'Onwards & Stronger Together', the 55-minute show will be broadcast on the Singapore Sports Hub's YouTube channel on Aug 9 at 1pm and will be hosted by local actress Michelle Chong's popular character Ah Lian.

Meanwhile, Ah Lian will be joined by fellow Left Profile artistes Pornsak, Lee Teng and Royce Lee to lead the community in a #PlankThatSong challenge, where participants are challenged to sing a National Day song while maintaining good form in a plank position.

Members of the public can revel in the festivities by checking out new Instagram filters to get picture-ready for both birthday milestones and explore the map for interesting trivia and games to play on a virtual adventure.


Japan's No. 1 sunscreen brand's first make-up product and new addition to its award-winning sun protection series is the Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Base Makeup SPF 50+ PA+++.

The multitasking primer sunscreen delivers three essential benefits: Strong UV protection, smooth lasting finish and hassle-free delivery system, all in one handy product.

Offering the same powerful sun protection loved by Anessa fans, the new compact is equipped with Shiseido's proprietary Aqua Booster technology. With this innovation, negatively-charged Aqua Booster ingredients react with the positively-charged minerals in sweat and water to form a more uniform UV.

Available in three shades (Clear, Light and Natural), the product is also formulated with Anessa's Dual Beauty ingredients, such as Shiseido's Kyoto Uji Green Tea Leaf Extract and Yellow Flower Extract, which help prevent photoageing, and Super Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen and Glycerin for long-lasting intense hydration.

The Perfect UV Sunscreen Skincare Base Makeup SPF 50+ PA+++ ($49.90) is now available at Cold Storage, Don Don Donki, Metro, Raffles Health Pharmacy, Robinsons, Watsons, Welcia-BHG and online at Lazada, Qoo10, Shopee and Watsons.com.
