We say this all the time, but TIME REALLY FLIES! In a blink of an eye, here we are, done and dusted with 2016 and near the end of the second month of 2017 already. Still, it’s not too late to reminisce over the happenings in 2016 as we recount the highlights and reflect on all the fun moments that we had here at Churp Churp 🙂
Started the year off by invading Royal Caribbean with our Alphas, Jon, Jie Hui, Brenda and Vera as we travelled to Langkawi and Penang 🙂 We were onboard for 5 days and with plenty of activities for us to do, we simply couldn’t be happier! #TheRoyalChurpSGInvasion
We blogged the whole experience on Churp Churp’s Dayre here at bit.ly/churpxroyalcarribean if you want to find out more!
In February, Brenda & Jie Hui enjoyed their very own Valentine’s Day dining experience at Spuds & Aprons at Faber Peak Singapore! It was indeed a lovely meal with a great ambience, read our full review of the food here at bit.ly/churp16xvday 🙂
We also tied up design & lifestyle store, Naiise with our Alpha, Brenda to pick 10 items based on a specific theme that she absolutely adored! Our readers got to enjoy discount codes when they purchase from Naiise’s online website too 🙂 #churpsgx10naiisethings
Up next, we were stoked to be invited down to Lepark in May for yet another food-tasting session! All those dishes certainly brought us to food heaven….
We were served their new menu back then and one memorable dish was this Satay Marinated Angus Beef Cheek Stew with fried buns. It was our personal favourite! The beef cheek was so tender that it melts in our mouth and the fried buns went so well with the stew. (it’s making us hungry again!)

In light of Father’s Day celebration, we listed some recipes on how to whip up some easy dishes for you to cook up a feast for your father to celebrate this occasion. Hopefully this came in handy for those of you out there who wanted to impress your parents with a lovely meal!
Once again, Netccentric partnered with the National Day Parade (NDP) in 2016 to celebrate Singapore’s 51st birthday! This meant that we got to attend several social media events and received first dibs (such as a peek into the fun packs!) on how Singapore will be celebrating her birthday! <3
During the social media event, they explained to us the theme, concept and winning logo for 2016, which made us hyped up for #NDP2016 itself! It was certainly interesting to hear how the judges chose the winning logo & how they tried to engage the younger generations to join in the celebrations 🙂
Our Alphas definitely had an exciting time watching the National Day Parade last year, read all about Brianna’s experience on her blog!
Moving on, we are excited to share with you one of the main reasons why 2016 means so much to us – our celebration of Netccentric’s 10th Anniversary! We gathered our Alphas, Bloggeratis, long-time clients and beloved staff to join us at our #welivesocial party as we celebrate all the success that we have achieved throughout the years 🙂
As we were down to the last quarter of 2016, our Alphas & Nuffnang Bloggeratis from Singapore and Thailand rocked #ITSTHESHIP2016! This is the 2nd largest EDM (Electronic Dance Music) Festival out at sea and it is our honor to be the official social media partner! 3 days of non-stop dancing to tunes from DJs all around the world, our crew surely had the time of their lives partying all night !
Also, Nuffnang & Churp Churp are proud to be the official social media partners for 2017’s M1 Singapore Fringe Festival yet again! This event focused on local artistes, with participation from fellow international artistes spanning across four categories namely: Fringe Highlights, Live Fringe, Fresh Fringe and Fringe Activities.
All of us at Netccentric come together to contribute to the community every year without fail. We strongly feel that it is important for us to help the less fortunate and in a way, ensure that our community can grow from strength to strength! In 2016, we worked with Singapore Children’s Society to help paint colourful wall murals in Bukit Merah and help to spring clean one of their student care centres. It was a fun-filled afternoon that allowed us to bond while coming together for a wonderful cause too!
Ending the year off the way we know best — Christmas at the Netccentric Office! We had so much fun playing games prepared by each room at the office, all documented nicely in our Dayre post here! As we gather together as one tonight to celebrate Christmas, we are also reminded of how we should always stand by each other and support one another even more in the New Year.
It’s always great to look back and reflect on all the opportunities that we got to experience in 2016, to remember the fun that we shared and for it to be a source of motivation for us to work harder in the upcoming year. Onward with the rest of 2017, Churpers!
