Makeover Magic by Shunji Matsuo

Celebrity hair stylist Shunji Matsuo and his hair salons under the Shunji Matsuo group need no introduction. On August 2017, we were invited to do a photoshoot for their Makeover Magic Fashion Show at Japan Beautiful Life - Singapore's first Japanese Lifestyle Expo.

Mr. Matsuo had always wanted to contribute back to the society. He felt that there is beauty in everyone and beauty knows no age and style. In 2011, he wanted to celebrate the beauty of aging for elderly women and women who are battling with cancer. He wanted them to feel confident again by creating exquisite looks that suit their style and have them sashay down the runway. That's how Makeover Magic came about and it became his life’s work. 

At the Japanese Lifestyle Expo event, we set up a photoshoot area behind the stage so that the models could have their portraitures taken. We decided that the photoshoot would simply be to bring out their natural selves. To our surprise, magic really existed in this event! Carefreeness and confidence were written all over these warriors' faces after the show. 

This meaningful event has inspired us as much as the late Mr. Matsuo has inspired many others to live their lives with positivity and happiness.

We hope you will enjoy the series of images below!

Do have a look at what went on behind the scenes!

IMH Jingle Bell Rock 2016

This is the season to be jolly. What better way to 'rock' it off than a Christmas Carol. We are grateful of the opportunity to work with the staff from IMHto usher in the festive season with a music video of "Jingle Bells". Not only are the staff compassionate, helping the most needy and vulnerable social sphere, they are also natural-born theatrical actors. Under the spotlight, they performed an catchy and upbeat version of "Jingle Bells".

Merry Christmas everybody, rock on!

Play Me, I'm Yours.

Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by artist Luke Jerram. More than 1500 pianos have now been installed in 50 cities across the globe, from London to Lima, bearing the simple invitation Play Me, I’m Yours. The project has reached more than ten million people worldwide.

The Playtent & Singapore International Foundation present Play Me, I’m Yours in Singapore with the pianos available to play until Mid May 2016. A total of 25 donated pianos, decorated by 25 local artists working with 25 different Social Welfare Organisations were located in parks, housing estates and public spaces for all to play and enjoy.

This initiative aims to increase public awareness for SWOs in Singapore as well as to bond people through arts and music.

When Playtent approached us, we really liked the idea of this international initiative. It was meaningful and interesting. Hence, we decided to play a part and help tell the story of one of the SWOs who are participating in this initiative - Dignity Kitchen.

Touching Lives, Healing Hearts

This video gives a glimpse into the life of an Institute of Mental Health nurse.

Nursing is no longer just about bedside care. It has evolved. Nurses can now explore other tracks, such as, education and research; all of which, strive to improve patient care. At IMH, nurses have many specialised career tracks to choose from: Clinical, Education, and Administration. New nursing career tracks have also been introduced: Nursing Quality, Nursing Informatics, and Nursing Research.

Psychiatric nurses face their fair share of challenges as they care for people with mental illness. However, their greatest reward is seeing their patients recover and reintegrate back into the community.
