LoveBox Pose & Post

It's that time of the year again!


The coming Valentine's Day will be the second one that I am spending with Alaric! Last year we celebrated with a simple dinner & movie as well as gifts to each other. Some of you may do something pretty low-key, some of you may plan something extra special for your other, while some of you may not feel the need to do anything for it at all! After all, every day can be special.

This year, Durex is launching a very simple contest for couples out there who have captured a special moment with their partner in a photo, with the grand prize being a 4D3N special couple's trip to Krabi worth $5000!


Grand Prize: 4D3N Couple Trip to Krabi worth SGD$ 5,000 x 1
Dining Voucher at Sky Dining worth SGD$ 350 x 5
Durex Hamper & merchandise worth SGD$ 50 x 20

Sky Dining by the way, is romantic fine dining in a cable car!

It's very simple really, you don't need to capture extravagant moments spent together. The most important is that it was meaningful to you, which is what Valentine's Day is all about! But of course, it's an added bonus if photography is something that interests you anyway! ^^

This very unprofessional (not even with a digital camera, this was taken on my laptop's webcam) photo in one of the most uninteresting locations - my school library - is special to me because this is where we first met & spent most our days getting to know each other while studying for exams.

Who knows, you might win you & your partner a well-deserved romantic break to Krabi!

Alaric & I went to Krabi recently & I really liked it! A short getaway with your partner is also a great way to unwind together. That's one type of photo you can submit - holidays you went on with your partner where you got to try & see lots of new things together.

This is in Krabi; I had been wanting a beach holiday for a long time! 
I got to try snorkeling for the first time in Krabi & satisfied my Thai food cravings!

Alaric & I at Chatuchak in Bangkok!

If you haven't had time to go overseas together yet, (which is why you should join the contest) what about in our own little island?

This was taken when Alaric first asked me to be his girlfriend.

Visit to the Night Safari!

Visit to the zoo, feeding kangaroos! :D

And a visit to the new USS! I know, I just listed 3 of Singapore's major tourist attractions. Well, you're a Singaporean; when was the last time you went to the zoo? Why not do something different together? :)

How about even special days of the year spent together?

This is Alaric & I on Halloween:

And us at Christmas 2010!

Just looking through all our photos together, I realised we've had lots of good times :) Now if one of those moments could win us another special moment, why not? :)

All you need to do is submit a photo of you & your partner at the Durex Singapore Facebook page! The contest runs from 16th Jan 2012 - 29th Feb 2012 & is open to any Singaporean/PR who is 18 years old & above.

The Top 50 Voted Photos will be shortlisted for deliberation by a panel of judges & there will be a total of 26 prizes to be given out!

Here's some good news - YOU CAN SUBMIT AS MANY PHOTOS AS YOU LIKE #KiasuSingaporeansUnite!

And the best news is - NO COMPULSORY PURCHASE!
You don't need any proof of purchase to take part in this contest!

Here's how to join:

(allow access to the LoveBox Pose & Post application to be able to submit a photo)

You should see this once you have "liked" the page & allowed the application!

Next, go to Strike A Pose & fill in your info.


Click NEXT!

You'll be brought to this page below, where you get to choose which Love Box you want to go along with the photo you're submitting! They have 8 designs, so if you submit 8 photos you won't even have to worry about deciding which is the "nicest" design LOL.


I picked a cheery yellow-base Love Box for my picture :)


You can either snap a photo on the spot with your webcam, or upload an older one! If you're the super competitive type you can go & specially take some impressive new photos for the contest LOL.

Here you can zoom in/out & decide how the picture should be framed!
Hehe I thought the kangaroo-feeding was a cute picture!

And that's it! You've joined the contest! It's that simple!

Now you should try & get your friends/family/pets to vote for your picture so that you stand a higher chance of winning! Remember, you need to get into the Top 50!

Even if you don't win the main prize, it's ok because there are 25 other prizes! Furthermore, I think the most important was being able to reminisce about your relationship :)

And ok. Wait. You're not done.

Go to Gallery to see the entries of other couples!


You can see that there are a lot of couples who have already submitted their entry, so you gotta hurry!

2. Pick your LoveBox & upload the photo(s)!
3. Get votes for it to increase chances of winning!

All the best ok! I hope the holiday will be super special for the winning couple :) 
And even if you don't win... well, you've got each other no? :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

And to end off, here's one more photo of Alaric & I that I have never uploaded:
Hahaha that's Alaric & I doing a catwalk for a charity event, with weird face makeup!
Definitely a photo I would want to upload for the contest! :)

So here it is again: Durex Singapore LoveBox Pose & Post contest! Give it a shot!

    Hi Sophie, I was introduced to you a few years back and didn't quite like you then, maybe because you weren't really friendly then, or I misunderstood haha. But anyway! I have been reading your blog lately and I really like your posts and I find your entries really genuine and easy to read. Just wanna tell you to keep blogging! You are good at what you do.

  2. Anonymous: Hello! Haha so that means we've actually met? Sadly most people assume I'm bound to be arrogant (I don't have the friendliest face I guess) although it's not intentional at all! I'm just not good at that kind of PR stuff :(
    Anyway thank you for your comment :) I really appreciate it when someone takes the time out to drop a message like this! :)
