Some calendars are meant for doodling appointments, marking out birthdays and important anniversaries – or when the recycling truck comes by, but not this all-star calendar by Mediacorp.
We’ve got Ah Jie looking like a glamazon who stepped right out of a fashion spread; veteran actors Chen Shucheng, Hong Hui Fang and Xiang Yun toasting flutes and jazzing up a random HDB void deck with their glitzy gowns and hair and makeup entourage; and Jesseca Liu, Pierre Png and Shaun Chen looking pretty spiffy in leather jackets at the Youth Flying Club - in what can possibly be the poster of an upcoming Channel 8 aviation drama series a la TVB’s Triumph in the Skies.
Featuring 35 artistes, this calendar is styled with themes that align with different drama genres that mirror the staple of content offerings produced by the TV station. To make it extra special, it is shot at a handful of iconic locations around our little red dot, from the last standing sand-filled dragon playground at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 to the likes of Haw Par Villa. If you look hard enough, you may even recognise Mediacorp’s corporate floors – and the large grassy lawn at 1 Stars Avenue in some of the shots.
In short: this calendar’s for keeps. Don’t say we bojio.
