THE RADIOHEATWAVE MANAGERS
KIMBERLEY-ANN TAN
PROGRAMME MANAGER
Kimberley-Ann Tan
Kimberley has been 1D & Bieber af since her lower secondary school days, and isn’t ashamed about her fangirl side at all. Follow her on Twitter (@kimthawesome) or Youtube (youtube.com/satzy24) to see it for yourselves (she blames it on The Jonas Brothers and High School Musical).

Besides fangirling, Kimberley loves spending time with her friends, family (dog included) and boyfriend (#janberley). Music has been her passion ever since her ballet career failed (still can’t do a split) in primary school. She has also been a member of The Girls’ Brigade for 11 years (ever since she joined in primary 2) and currently serves as a Warrant Officer (which means the girls have to greet her as ma’am!!!).

If there’s vegetable stuck in your teeth or make-up smudged all over your face, no need to fear, because Kimberley is that one friend who will let you know the moment she sees it.

Unashamed of how goofy her face and voice can be sometimes, Kimberley will always be there for you if you need a laugh or two. She does pretty good impressions of people too. Come hang out with her on The Breakfast Club, everyday from 10AM-12PM!

TAMMY ALYSHA LUI
MARKETING MANAGER
SOCIAL MEDIA & WEBSITE MANAGER
Tammy Alysha Lui
Unlike most people who fantasise about finding their true love or being wealthy and successful, Tammy’s biggest fantasy consists of her swinging from rooftop to rooftop in a mask as a superhero. Specifically Batgirl. Specifically in the purple suit. That’s the ultimate dream.

However, with the athletic prowess of a pencil, Tammy lives this fantasy instead by crying over television shows about heroes and zombies. (She’s an emotional wreck over The Flash.) A 19-year-old who refuses to grow up, Tammy is the one to ask about your favourite childhood shows and games because she can talk about them for HOURS.

Never did she think that she would end up at Heatwave. Her ambitions have changed with age, from being a cheerleader to a secret agent to the ultimate Eevee trainer... Glad to say, she finally has her heart set on taking up journalism and becoming the editor of a magazine one day. Of course, perhaps a radio deejay wouldn't be too bad either.

See how she fares at 10AM-12PM every morning on The Breakfast Club. (Please be kind.)
EDMUND WONG
MUSIC MANAGER
Edmund Wong
There are two things that best describes this young man. Football and Music.

This Music Director’s got a knack for the balls and the beats. Why if only they had a studio filled with footballs...

Edmund might seem unapproachable at first due to his default “fierce” look, but once you get to know him better, he’ll crack you up with his crazy antics.

Having worked at Starbucks before, service is at his fingertips and he’ll be hoping to provide the good ol’ service for the station and for you.

Sip your morning Starbucks with him every morning on The Breakfast Club from 10AM-12PM.
JOSHUA TAYLOR EE
SPECIAL PROJECT & EVENTS MANAGER
Joshua Taylor Ee
Joshua Taylor is someone that comes off as quirky, a little random, really casual, and all out passionate.

Having a flair for the local music scene, you'll notice him plugged in most of the time and enjoying some indie tunes. Sometimes, if he's feeling rich, he'll be penning down delicate thoughts behind cafe windows. He enjoys taking time to express the intangibles - personalities, soulfulness and emotions. And when he's not with his pen and paper (and earphones), he's sitting with a bunch of misfits, enjoying how the whole concept of time fades into the background. For a people person like him, quality time with others is what makes life worth living. To spend long nights out with his favorite people and treasuring every bit of his fiery youth.

Get to know Joshua Taylor on The Breakfast Club, every morning from 10AM-12PM.
Ameer Hamzah
Ameer Hamzah
Ladies and Gentlemen.

He has arrived.

Ameer Hamzah. Some would call him an enigma, some a messiah. Truth be told, no one truly knows who he is, just that....he is. Awesome. With a taste for achieving the extraordinary, he's known as a charmer. Charming audiences, adults, children, and for some mystical reason not attributed to his stunning persona, women. Rather lots of women. Not that it bothers him of course.

Ameer is also the electrifying performer. Actor, model, genius billionaire playboy philantrophist (soon to be), he's set to blow seven billion miles when he lands on the biggest stage of them all.

Believe that.

Find him on TGIW every Wednesday, 12PM-2PM.

Ameer Ibrahim
Ameer Ibrahim
There comes a time in everyone’s life where they meet someone amazing. Someone so brilliant, so talented, and so hilarious that they’ll change your life forever. Ameer, or as he’d preferred to be called, Ammzey (pronounced /æm'zi/) is not that person. But he’s a pretty cool guy. And is a little too obsessed with video games, movies and anime than he’d like to admit. But don’t let that stop you from having a crush on him.

Ammzey is a loose-cannon pseudo-hipster who’s too tall for the kid’s table. He likes to take a swim in the main stream every so often, and finds current events just right. Interests in music range from the indie-est of indie songs to the most popular in pop, and interests in everything else is about just as varied, there’s never a dull moment with this one. (He even does impressions!) Catch him every Thursday from 2pm to 5pm on Geek Speak and maybe you’ll get to hear his Stephen Hawking. Maybe.

Catch him every Thursday from 2PM-4PM on Geek Speak and maybe you’ll get to hear his Stephen Hawking one. Maybe.

Chris J. Ratnam
Chris J. Ratnam
This station needs a new hero - and we seem to have found him - in the form of the Dark Kni… Uh, I mean Chris!

Ladies & Gentlemen the resident engineer is back in the house! Hailing from the far reaches of the campus (i.e. School of Engineering) while pursuing Aerospace Technology, Chris has proven that engineers don’t only crunch numbers and build complicated stuff. This multi-talented child is also a sailor, photographer and foodie.

Usually found in his native habitat of fast-food joints and cafes, Chris also dreams of one day being a pilot. If and when you see him you’d definitely recognize him as the the life of the party. With a sense of humour that would put Jerry Seinfeld to shame, be prepared to laugh till you cry. Did he also mention that since the studio is so near Splash N’ Decker, he will get a never ending supply of his favourite tuna sandwiches?

So catch Chris and Joel as they take you on a gastronomical journey every Tuesday from 12PM-2PM!

Elmer Palo
Elmer Palo
Imagine your favourite movie star - say, Zac Efron. Mix that with the voice of Morgan Freeman and the personality of Jennifer Lawrence. Elmer, unfortunately, is none of that sort.

With a love affair with music and a knack for blunt sarcasm, Elmer wades through the constant mess that is his life. He's convinced his hair makes or breaks his daily look, and he pretends that his whole world is one big Victoria's Secret runway. It has been his life philosophy to pretend there's hidden cameras everywhere, so he can look straight into nowhere for dramatic effect.

In his spare time, when he's not obsessed over his looks, he goes around jamming with his friends and belting out anything that can fit four basic chords. More often than not, they're probably from High School Musical or some other Disney movie. Thankfully, that's not all that he's gonna broadcast during his show!

Catch Elmer every Friday from 12PM-2PM, as he serenades you to sweet sounds during the Acoustics show! (Especially for all you singles out there - he's desperate)

Gevin Yaneza
Gevin Yaneza
Student by day, Hero by Night. Gevin is often confused by people as Spiderman, his middle name is Peter. Colourful is a way to describe Gevin as he comes from international Business but yet loves Radio, Movies, Comics and 1D!!! ....zayn tho :(

A believer of true love, he loves singing love songs and watching romantic stories (the fault in our stars .....his life long goal is to be just like Augustus Waters). Gevin can cook you dinner, can buy you flowers, can take you to the beach, can bring you star gazing, can write you cute notes, and most importantly he is a good listener to your problems and offers you his care.

Aside from his remarkable qualities, he loves Strawberries as they are sweet.....after all, you are what you eat.

Catch him on Cinemania every Thursdays from 12PM-2PM only on the Hottest Thing on Campus.....RADIOHEATWAVE.

Joel Ng
Joel Ng
It has been said that Joel puts the Mass in Mass Communication. That should give you a good idea of what he looks like.

Joel thinks his true calling is comedy and proved it by winning his Secondary School’s talent competition for just that. People never believe him when he says he’s funny but he figures it just means he’s unbelievably funny. In desperate need of a good diet plan but even more so for good food, Joel is a self-proclaimed Grammar Nazi but a Dietary Democrat. After talking his way of out many sticky situations, he realises that he loves the sound of his voice and therefore feels obligated to share it with the rest of the world.

Joel’s hobbies include: flirting, getting shot down, eating to drown the pain, reading, playing the guitar, and generally being awesome in life. He listens to anything under the Sun that catches his ear. That includes Screamo, J-Rock and Justin Bieber. Wait no. Not Justin Bieber. NEVER Justin Bieber.

Joel has a problem with maintaining his ego but it doesn't matter to him because he’s amazing. His philosophy is that there are two kinds of people in this world: People who say they like him, and those who think it.

After 18 years of eating, Joel has decided to prove his worth through the Food Fighter's show. Catch him every tuesday from 12PM-2PM as he takes you on a gastronomical journey with Chris.

Joseph Soh
Joseph Soh
Its Year 2 that means there’s a whole lot more Joseph for you because he believes the holidays are best used restocking his inventory – his belly. With witty puns and a knack for satire, Joseph thinks that his gifts lie in his ability to take any situation and make you laugh by seeing the funny side of things.

As far as music goes, Joseph loves everything from Adam Lambert & Katy Perry to the much more understated Christina Perri & Sam Smith. Throw in a few boy bands to the mix like One Direction (who are now going in different directions) and Bastille, and you’ve got his playlist on your hands.

Having hosted many events in school and in public, such as IoT Asia 2015 at the EXPO or “From Singapore with Love” at SCAPE, Joseph’s passion is to entertain the masses while watching his audiences stare blankly/in awe (delete as appropriate) as he bewilders them with jokes so lame, they lose their ability to walk.

And as long as Joseph can fit into through the door of the Heatwave studios, he’ll be there every Wednesday from 4PM-6PM, on Battle Of The Sexes, presenting the case for testosterone.

Joshua Ang
Joshua Ang
Currently pursuing a diploma in Mass Communication, Joshua has always dreamed of 2 things. Being a Radio Jock and dating Vanessa Hudgens. Although obviously deluded, a man can dream can’t he?

While people have always told him his voice can put them to sleep, he’s terribly over excitable and has a sense of humour so lame its a wonder how he is still able to walk. Apart form school, he can almost always be found curled up with his mac at some cafe sipping on a latte like a pretentious movie character.

His past times include singing (horribly) in the shower and running around with his camera like a tourist.

If you were to steal his earbuds and listen in (though not advisable), you’d hear a range of music, from bands ‘you haven’t even heard off’ to EDM, except Justin Bieber. Theres no place on his playlist for that.

Catch him every Tuesday 4PM-6PM on Muscle Hustle!

Joshua Seth
Joshua Seth
Joshua Seth, being the love guru he is, is currently co-hosting Fridate along with Samantha, where they both find out… what is love? (Baby don’t hurt me) He’s a Watcher on the Wall, was in Woodlands Secondary School a year ago and is now studying Mass Communication in FMS (#1). He likes it here.

Now Josh is into a lot of things, some of them being The Minorities, Boxing, Smash Bros... the list goes on. He also enjoys reading, writing short poems from time to time, Game Of Thrones, watching lots of videos on YouTube, OneRepublic, spamming/ranting on Twitter if he’s bored, and being a massive nerd :3 (Did we miss out anything?)

Being more of a lover (HA) than a hater, Josh tries his best to tolerate redundant arguments and insects (if they bug him, especially the flying ones), forgetting to bring his earpieces, making enemies, wasting time in general ;) Other than that he's pretty chill.

Oldies are this thing, but in his playlist you can find a favourite bunch of the new ones too.

You can follow Joshua Seth on Twitter and Instagram @TrulyMercurial.

Catch him on Fridate, Fridays 2PM-4PM!

Rishiiy VJ
Rishiiy VJ
Just your friendly neighbourhood indian, Rish(iiy) is the coolest of all the cucumbers.

Coupled with his favourite combo of slippers + jeans he believes that the best moments in life are spent with a few friends and a few plates of prata sitting in front you. Forever the optimist rish has been known for always sticking to his gut feeling when it comes to making decisions.

Which means staying up at 2AM in the morning and watching Begin Again and letting the tears flow. As you can tell he enjoys a good movie though he can get emotional when characters die in the movie.

So this time around, for the first time ever catch him talking about EVERYTHING movie related from Thursdays 12PM-2PM on Cinemania with his show partner Gevin!

Sathia S/O Selvam
Sathia S/O Selvam
Currently juggling between being a member of Stage 52, Sgnewwave, the President of Film and Media Studies Society, a jock for Radioheatwave and a full time bed tester, you could say he's busy man. However he always has time for his listeners as being a radio dj is one of his favourite things to do in his free time!

When the boogeyman goes to sleep at night, he checks under the bed for Sathia. Sathia doesn't wear a watch, he DECIDES what time it is. Nah im joking. Sathia's your typical laid back guy who would rather spend his friday nights at home playing video games with friends instead of going clubbing or whatever it is you muggles are up to these days.

In terms of his taste in music, Sathia enjoys a variety of genres as long as it's appealing to his ears. A notable few that he particular likes are JustinTimberlake, Linkin Park and Black Eyed Peas. I told you he's diverse. Speaking of msuic artists Wait till you get a load of his voice. Sathia has been working part time as a speaker in the Heatwave conty whenever the basis speaker doesn't work. People say the Pacific Ocean is the deepest thing in the world, but i say, Sathia's voice is deeper, if you don't include the almighty voice of god; Morgan Freeman.

Sathia's the jock that'll usually be blending into the background in the conty when the lights are off, but catch him every Tuesday 4-6pm on the show with the most amount of testosterone, Mustle Hustle with his beach whale of a partner, Joshua Ang, only on the hottest thing on campus, Radioheatwave.

Timothy Yip
Timothy Yip
Timothy got the pet name Moti when he over enthusiastically introduced himself as Timo-moti infront of a crowd of 200 teenagers. Till this day, he asserts that teenagers are much, much cooler than he will ever be.

As a DJ & Music Producer, Moti spends his days mumbling incoherently to himself in a studio while improving his DJ skills so that he can fulfill his wish of DJing at a music festival one day. He sometimes tries to work out by making the tedious journey to his kitchen. Other times he just lifts his eyelids - trust us, it's harder than you think.

Despite his inability to get the girls to fall in love with him, Moti still finds himself pretty smooth - with the aunties.... And technology.

In fact, Moti's pretty geeky (because come on, why else would anyone use the word 'geeky'). Catch him every Thursday from 2PM-4PM with his buddy from the dark side, Ammzey, for Geek Speak where they geek out about all things techy.

(P.S. He hates when people call him Moti, so call him Timo instead and he will let you live)

Amirah Hakim
Amirah Hakim
This pun-loving girl loves everything that’s related to film, music and adventure! Amirah is a year two Film, Sound & Video student. She seems quiet at first but when you get to know her, she’s an extremely spontaneous and crazy girl. Her enthusiasm for life will spread to you like a virus!

Amirah loves to chill out to the sounds of Hozier and Lowercase Noises. When she’s feeling good, prepare to hear her scream the lyrics of Louis Armstrong and Nat King Cole. The percussionist loves her Korean dramas and don’t be fooled by her thin frame because she used to be a competitive swimmer and soccer player back in the day.

Hang out with Amirah and Vidhya on Focal Local, every Wednesday, 2PM-4PM for a feast of delicious local music!

Denise Teo
Denise Teo
Awkwardly taller than the average, Denise Teo is a year 1 Film, Sound & Video student who miraculously passed the RadioHeatwave auditions. Yay!

Denise tends to be socially awkward and talks too little for someone who talks way too much. Just to make things even more awkward, she likes to think she's funny when she actually has a horrible sense of humor. She also has a weird laughter that sounds like dying baby seal.

She spends most of her time singing, dancing, acting and figure skating. She always feels that she is obligated to be involved in many activities (for God knows what reason), hence juggling several CCAs such as being in New Revolving Age, Stage 52 and the Ice Skating club. But when she isn't busy, she blogs, posts videos on youtube, watches movies with her mum and takes selfies. Wait. She's never too busy for a selfie.

When it comes to music, Denise is open to all sorts of genres and languages. However, she loves acoustic and lyrical music, and her favourites are Sam Smith, Kodaline, One Republic and the talented red-headed lyrical genius, Ed Sheeran. (She loves him A LOT) Be warned that she might be awkwardly attempting to lip-sync and dance to the songs, so that'll be interesting.

Come listen to Denise embarrass herself on air on The InvAsian Show, every Monday from 4PM-6PM! Yay!

Heidi Tan
Heidi Tan
18 and currently in pursuit of a Diploma in Mass Communication, Heidi has extremely realistic life goals. And by realistic, I mean dreaming of a Victoria Secret angel’s bikini body while chowing down large amounts of food and crying about it later on.

Apart from wanting to look like Adriana Lima, her other interests include becoming a champion French fry eater, Austin Butler’s wife and a multi millionaire with a personal chef. (ok- maybe she took all that ‘reach for the stars’ advice from her Primary 2 teacher a little too seriously.)

Despite her sharp tongue and being gifted by the gods in the art of sarcasm, Heidi is generally harmless. She might threaten to ‘burn your house down’ or ‘shave your eyebrows off’ but she won’t actually do it. No, not because she’s a coward, but because she’s a very very VERY nice person (can you hear her friends laugh-mocking this statement?).

To find out if she’s really as nice as she claims to be, you should DEFINITLEY join her and her partner Regin on Rock Out, every Tuesday from 2PM-4PM (or she might just burn your house down).

Lynette Yong
Lynette Yong
Usually just in jeans and a t-shirt, Lynette is usually more "out of it", than in it. She loves to eat baked goods (bread, cake, strudel, macarons) and wishes she had a frozen yoghurt machine at home. When she’s not online shopping, it’s usually because she has spent all her money on concerts. (She’s already been to 3 this year… alone. Yikes!)

K-RNB/ Hip Hop/ Rock (yes... all these exist) is her ultimate muse but she has had her 1D phase. (awww c’mon) To her, “everything is subjective” and she’s really just a clueless cream cheese sugar doughnut that uses way too many ellipsis.

Colouring in her colour book and lipsyncing to romanised Korean lyrics are just normal daily activities for her.

Many have resorted to calling her “Lymess” because… it is what it is. Not saying that she’s a physical mess, but her mind is usually filled with nonsense. She’s not your average girly girl and has more male tendencies than necessary, but the inner girl in her wears a tutu dress.

Check her out for yourself on Battle of the Sexes from 4PM-6PM every Wednesday, and hear her squirm and cringe about her feminine side. (OooOOo)

Michelle Lee
Michelle Lee
Michelle tells people she’s a Year 2 Film, Sound and Video Student, but she’s really in her final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. (Muggles, I am going to erase your memory in three, two, one…)

Michelle grew up dancing, her favourite being tap; rhythm never fails to intrigue her. Glen Hansard inspires her and she listens to his music for hours on loop. Don’t be surprised by the array of fandom T-shirts she wears or the number of occasions she quotes Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock and F.R.I.E.N.D.S. She reckons Shakespeare is a genius and has a teeny-weeny book of his (terribly beautiful) insults. Theatre gives her life and she dreams of travelling the world. Or, the galaxy. That’ll do too.

Sometimes, Michelle does things that result in her friends running away from her. Bit strange, I suppose. She’s always up for alone time – catching a movie, maybe curling up in bed with a good book. On her bucket list is to experience a White Christmas. To her future snow pals out there, she looks forward to meeting you.

Join her and Theodora on #ThrowbackThursday every week from 4PM-6PM as they drown you in waves of nostalgia.

Rajeswari
Rajeswari
Rajes is new to the Radio Heatwave crew, but she’s a Year 3 student in Mass Communication, trying to make her mark in the school before she leaves it. She’s always had a passion for radio & now’s her time to show it.

Rajes helms the “Indie Evenings” show on her own, which is something she has in common with her idol, Rozz from Lush 99.5fm, who helms her own morning show on the indie station. Rajes promises that this would be the only common thing, and that she won’t get into any trouble.

Rajes has a huge passion for music with a particular love for R&B songs. She is still waiting to meet Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. Oh, and it wouldn’t hurt if Adam Levine’s in the room too. She also has had a background in hosting, dancing and acting.

Now, she’s enjoying her time as a radio jock, which is what she wants to do after she leaves Ngee Ann Poly.

Tune in on Fridays, 4 to 6pm to catch her on Indie Evenings.

Regin Ho
Regin Ho
Regin is a year 2 Mass Communication student who's so metal, she's had braces in her mouth for four whole years.

Her interests vary from wearing a lot of black, dyeing her hair a million colours, getting yelled by her dentist, telling (really) bad jokes, playing volleyball, gig-going, stalking bands from the airports to their hotels, to cosplaying.

Other than being a sucker for anything acoustic (and sashimi), Regin listens to anything that has a good supply of guitar riffs, and a heavy dose of bass and drums - indie, metalcore, pop punk, J-rock, hardcore. Moreover, she’s an avid supporter of the local rock music scene!

#SUPPORTLOCAL Being exposed to the rock scene has definitely honed her musical skills as she’s proven to be talented in playing the triangle, air-guitaring, and singing in the shower.

Catch her yodelling em0$hunally about her fav jams on Rock Out 2PM-4PM, every Tuesday with her bae Heidi!

S Sangeeta
S Sangeeta
Her name is Sangeeta but you can just call her Sangee if you can’t pronounce her name. This sassy freshie from Mass Comm has a terrible habit of spending too much money on makeup so if you have a makeup emergency just look for her; she’s got tons. Also, you need makeup tips? She can help ya out with that.

She’s wanted to be a radio DJ since age 12, and thankfully, she stumbled upon Radio Heatwave - what she felt was the best platform to start small! (YEAH!) Speaking of starting small, did you know that Sangee just started a YouTube channel for entertainment purposes? (YT: notagnésbae)

Sangee’s music taste is simple - she doesn’t have any. She’s open to all genres of music, though at the end of the day she prefers mainstream music from the Billboard Charts. However, she does has favourite artistes such as Jessie J and Sam Smith (WOOHOO!) Oh yeah, and Sangee has a thing for people with very strong vocal quality; it simply sounds heavenly listening to them.

An extremely hyper and crazy person, if you see her around in school, just say hi and she might even hug you. (She hugs people a lot.)

If you want to listen to the crazy stuff she says, or hear her review makeup brands, don’t forget to tune in to Femme Fatale on Mondays 2PM-4PM on Radio Heatwave, the hottest thing on campus!

Sai Vidhya
Sai Vidhya
You can call her Vee, or the world’s greatest froyo addict who pursues a diploma in Mass Communication. She's also known to be one of the punniest people on earth, she kids you not.

Vee would catch a grenade for Justin Bieber any day, for when he smiles, she smiles. She love love LOVES every single thing about him, and have been and always will be a proud Belieber. She absolutely adores fashion, which is probably why she hoard fashion magazines like a maniac. Oh yeah, and Vee loves anything salmon. Especially when it comes to sushi and sashimi. And if you’re one of the lucky few, she'll actually share.

But something Vee would actually want to share with everyone would be her love for music.

And so, catch me on Focal Local every Wednesday from 2PM-4PM, where we find out more about our growing local music scene!

Samantha Fuentes
Samantha Fuentes
She didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose her. Sam believes that it is her true life calling to become the 'pinoy ahlian', but sadly she has been failing rather hilariously so far with her poor attempts of trying to grasp the Hokkien dialect.

Sam has been described to be mildly eccentric, extremely sarcastic and a (self-proclaimed) social butterfly. Her talents include doing her signature double chin 'Pao face' and annoying users on Habbo Hotel and Club Penguin, which honestly requires much wit, skill and persistence. Sam actually spent her 16th birthday last year throwing a virtual beach party on Habbo and it was a very fulfilling socialising opportunity for her. She sings too, but that's obviously not as impressive as her other talents stated above.

Besides that, the one thing she dislikes more than anything in the world is doing stuff on an empty stomach. Her favourite mood booster food has to be Char Kway Teow but actually she would practically eat anything that's edible when she’s hungry. Sam’s music taste varies and she mostly listens to anything that’s cool and catchy.

To catch more of Sam's antics, tune into Fridate on Radio Heatwave every Friday, 2PM-4PM!

Sejal Bagaria
Sejal Bagaria
Most people can’t pronounce Sejal's name on their first try so don’t feel bad if you can’t. Here's a freshie from in Mass Communication who turns 18 this year on New Years Eve! (She feels that her birthday is both a blessing and a curse) Her passion for writing and speaking is what made her join her course, and her love for talking a little too much was probably what prompted her to join Radio Heatwave. (Hopefully you don’t get too sick of her voice.)

Music is literally her life, and she'd bet that its any other teenager’s as well. All good songs immediately go to her spotify playlist. Sejal's quite versatile with music, but never narrows her scope down to one specific band or artiste and be a hardcore fangirl, oh no. She digs mainstream music like Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Ed Sheeran to rock music like Fall Out Boy (their new album has been on replay for days) to even EDM like Skrillex and Diplo. Basically anything that sounds good to her.

Did we mention that she's a Potterhead? She's read all the books (once) and seen all the movies (a bazillion times). Let's just say, Emma Watson = GOALS.

Catch her on Femme Fatale every Monday, 2PM-4PM, with her partner in crime Sangeeta on Radio Heatwave.

Theodora Lau
Theodora Lau
Theodora consumes her coffee without sugar and enjoys when the cheese is squarely placed on the patty. At 18, she's learned to knit twice and forgotten both times. Her favourite kind of pillows are those cold upon contact She indulges her playlist in almost everything from indie-folk to chill trap.

Catch Theodora every Thursday with Michelle from 4PM-6PM on Throwback Thursday!

Winona Roxanne
Winona Roxanne
Ever since Filipino-born Winona Roxanne came to Singapore at the age of 8, she was a force to be reckoned with. Yet she could not wield her dynamism with a thick, stereotypical Pinoy accent.

After a year of social exclusion due to her frustration of not being understood, and being consumed by Desperate Housewives, Winona has finally adopted an intelligible speech.

With this newfound confidence and competence, she could not put a stop to her incessant talking and has then aspired to be able to speak and reach out to as much people as she could without having to move around.

Winona is secretive, mysterious and cool. Or at least that is what she aims to be but just cannot stop talking about herself. Her guardian angel probably facepalms hersef a lot.

Catch Winona on the GigOut! show every Monday lunch hours from 12PM-2PM.

YOUTH SENSATION GLOBAL TOUR 2014

YOUTH SENSATION GLOBAL TOUR 2014
8 December 2014

The day of 5 December saw six Youtube artistes, local and international, come together as one to put up a show that was both intimate and diverse.

Hours before the performance, young fans lined up outside The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel, eager to get the best view of their idols. Despite the one-hour delay, spirits remained high.

The show commenced with a short modern-ballet solo piece. Although pleasant to watch and her technique was undoubtedly brilliant, it seemed a tad out of place amongst the rest of the acts. But the mood was not dampened as mood remained rapturous for the oncoming performances.

On to the performances! NoonTalk artiste Gavin Teo got the ball rolling. Shy and unassuming, his gentle voice floated through the enchanted crowd as the guitar seemed to strum itself effortlessly.

Gavin’s exit welcomed JA’s entrance. The Swedish duo Jonas and Anton, known as JA, are both only 16 year old but their stage presence packed a punch beyond the age. Voices and harmony blended naturally as their chemistry was evident. Many times, Jonas would look over at Anton and his face would break into a grin. Slightly awkward and largely adorable, they surely won over the crowd’s hearts.

As Nathan Hartono joined the duo in a song, the whole stage lit up in frenzy. This is one man who knows how to rock and own the stage. The audience fed off his energy and he looked like he is having all the fun in the world. One is guaranteed to feel wonderful after watching Nathan do what he loves to do.

Tanner Patrick took the stage and the crowd went wild – but went even wilder when he jumped off the stage (four times in one night, I might add) and started giving high-fives to unsuspecting fans. The security guards grabbed on to him, ensuring his safety. From the joy in his eyes, it was obvious how much he appreciates and loves interacting with his fans.

Without a prior word, Tiffany Alvord launched into her first song, strutting around the stage with subtle sass. When she tripped, she looked embarrassed for a millisecond but recovered in an instant. It was particularly entertaining when she threw on a pair of pink glasses and sang a duet with her brother, Trevin, complete with funky moves.

The finale was a treat. A surprise was when a birthday cake and balloons were presented to Tiffany, and everybody sang Happy Birthday. For a moment it felt like we were all hiding in her living room executing a Surprise Birthday plan. Tanner gave her a rainbow-coloured stuffed toy and the Taffy ship-name chant began.

After the finale, the lights dimmed and a video started to play. What nobody knew was that the artistes would return to the stage for a finale…part two! The crowd had decreased in size but that did not stop anyone from singing their hearts out. At last, they left the stage, but not before expressing their thanks and gratitude for the audience. And we’re similarly thankful for the visual and aural treat as well!

Usually on wednesdays, people wish for the weekend. However on that uneventful wednesday, we were just wishing for the end of the day. Why? BECAUSE YELLOWCARD that’s why! Arriving just on time for the meet and greet, we rushed in and got to meet the amazing Ryan Key, Josh Portman, Sean Mackin and Ryan Mendez. Despite being jetlagged and having an upcoming performance, the band still exuded warmth and friendliness! What a band! Having meeted and greeted Yellowcard, we all went back to queue for entry, clutching our freshly signed paraphernalia (Regin even got her laptop signed!).

The concert itself was an awesome experience both visually and aurally as everyone in the band had so much energy and stage presence! And props to Sean Mackin, who played on despite having technical difficulties with his violin (You da MVP). One of the best moments in the concert was when Ryan Keys sang a song, California, alone on the piano for his wife, Alyona Alekhina, who was in the hospital back in the states. It was tear-jerking to hear the emotion laid bare in his voice. Yellowcard then ended the concert on a high note with their hit song Ocean Avenue, which had us singing along at the top of our lungs. It was truly a night to remember.

We’d like to thank Anthology Singapore for providing us with passes to the Yellowcard event!

"You are family - The Script Family."

On Tuesday, 21 April, three Dubliners known as The Script graced the stage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as part of the 2014-2015 No Sound Without Silence tour. They performed familiar tunes to a multitude of dedicated followers, ranging from their debut to their latest (fourth) album, the latter being what the tour is named after.

Starting off the night right was Colton Avery, a singer/songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona. Having toured Europe with the band, he charmed the audience with his raw passion, accompanied by just his guitar.

Avery was followed by local indie-folk band The Sam Willows, who gave the fans a sneak peak of their new album recently recorded in Sweden. The quartet finished off a remarkable set with an original loved and known by many, Glasshouse...

A Rooftop Affair was opened by local hip hop artist, ShiGGa Shay, who took a different take on his songs for this gig. Instead of the usual heavy hip hop beats, ShiGGa performed a more striped down, acoustic version of his songs, which was very unique. Despite his more toned down performance, he still managed to hype up the crowd flawlessly with his wicked, well-crafted lyrics — everyone enthusiastically rapping along to 'Limpeh' and 'Lion City Kia'. It was definitely a fantastic way to start the night and get the audience going...

The most thrilling, heart-wrenching and hilarious movies to hit the big screen!

Rating: PG13

For someone who has never actually followed the Fast & Furious series, I went into the cinema with my doubts and mild interest. Sure, the cars falling out of the plane looked very thrilling, and that little bit of humor did make me giggle (a bit), but with all the boobs and just too much testosterone in the trailer, I was not 100% impressed.

However, in an unexpected turn of events, I surprisingly really enjoyed FF7.

The movie starts off with British villain Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham), seeking revenge over the Fast and Furious squad for putting his FF6 villain brother Owen Shaw (played by Luke Evans) in a coma. The Fast and Furious squad, as I like to call them (#squadgoals), is forced to take down Deckard as their last mission before retiring from all the action and settling down. A deal with an organization to take down Shaw gets the squad caught in even more trouble, which endangers their lives even more.

Being primarily an action movie, the action sequences – including deadly car chases, cars jumping out of planes, buildings collapsing with main characters rushing to escape etc. – were everywhere. Despite the tension in these action scenes, the director was sure to inject some humour to make everything more lighthearted and a bit easier for first-timers like myself to watch. The script was peppered with jokes and comedy, notably provided by characters like Roman Pearce (played by Tyrese Gibson) and even Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson).

A movie is nothing if it lacks a riveting plot, and FF7 knew that very well. There were moments that tugged at my heartstrings, particularly the angsty moments between Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel) and his wife Letty Ortiz (played by Michelle Rodrigues). Of course, everyone would probably agree with me that the biggest tearjerker was the tribute to the late Paul Walker, who passed away while filming this movie, the seventh installment of an 11-year series.

But fear not, faithful FF followers, I can assure you that you will be very pleased with how the director tied up the film as well as Paul’s farewell. My only bit of criticism would have to be the depth of most of the characters. Apart from Dom and Brian whom the movie centralized most on, the rest of the characters seemed to be sidelined, even overshadowed and forgotten amidst the action. I would have loved to see more Roman, or even more of the new chick, Ramsey (played by Nathalie Emmanuel).

Overall, FF7 was quite enjoyable, and definitely a movie to catch if you are a fan of explosions, sweet rides, and jokes that buuurrrrnnn. Thank you NBC Universal for inviting us for the preview screening of Fast & Furious 7 and for being such hospitable hosts at the event! I will definitely be binge watching Fast & Furious the next time I get the chance to!

First thing’s first (I’m the realest), I must say that Unlucky Plaza was nothing that I expected it to be. In a good way.

Written and directed by Ken Kwek, Unlucky Plaza stars Adrian Pang, Judee Tan, Guo Liang, Shane Mardjuki and Filipino actor Epi Quizon. Onassis Hernandez (played by Epi Quizon), was once the proud owner of Singapore’s most popular Filipino diner. But a food poisoning scandal triggered by a disgruntled cook left him on the brink of bankruptcy. After things are made worse by a financial scam, Onassis loses it. He takes a group of people hostage in a millionaire’s bungalow, sparking an international outcry after the crisis was captured on video.

So what makes Unlucky Plaza stand out from other local films? Well, if you’re aware of Ken and his previous works (Porn Masala, Sex.Violence.FamilyValues), you would know that he doesn't hold back and gives his 101% in everything he does...

Hands down the movie I had been waiting for the ENTIRE year.

As a religious follower of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), I was one of those who counted down the years, months, weeks then finally days for the premiere of the latest instalment to the franchise, Avengers: Age of Ultron. The first trailer alone got me aching for more! However, despite being a devout follower, I was skeptical that this movie would forever be in the shadow of it’s predecessor. As with most sequels, the first one is always better. Would the film be able to live up to the expectations of the first blockbuster that dominated the box office? (And the world)

Well, Joss Whedon (Director of Avengers: Age of Ultron), I’m sorry I ever doubted you.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is centres around the Avengers team - Captain America (played by Chris Evans), Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), The Hulk (played by Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner), going after Loki’s sceptre for one last hurrah. Through this supposedly final mission, Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man discovers something that would convince him to create Ultron, an artificial intelligence created to protect the world from alien threats. In a turn of events, Ultron turns on the Avengers and seeks to destroy Earth.

The plot might sound like your typical, superhero flick. But boy, was it not. In my opinion, this movie was incredible. In fact, I even felt that it surpassed its predecessor (by just a tiny margin). The action sequences were wonderfully executed, and the digital effects just blew me away; almost flawless. As to be expected by Marvel, I suppose.

The thing I loved most about this movie, however, was seeing the development of the relationship of the Avengers members. I will tell you that there is some internal conflict in this one, some that will even pitch them against each other. (OoOoooOhh) Joss Whedon lived up to his promise that this movie would be more character centric than the first. For all you Hulk and Hawkeye fangirls/fanboys, you’ll be quite pleased with how much screen time these characters got in this film.

Of course, how could Whedon forget about the new characters to join the Avengers cast? This movie saw 4 new characters introduced to the MCU - Pietro Maximoff a.k.a. Quicksilver (played by Aaron Taylor Johnson), Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), our main antagonist Ultron (played by James Spader) and The Vision (played by Paul Bettany). All four characters stood out in their own unique way, and for their debut film, I feel that they did pretty well in leaving their mark.

Despite being a fan of the narcissistic Tony Stark, I have to say that the character that captured me the most in this movie was Scarlet Witch. She was portrayed as such a mysterious character with super cool powers, and I’m excited to see the part she plays in the MCU. What superb acting from Elizabeth Olsen!

With all its twists and turns in storyline that will catch you from behind, the gripping characters that we all know and love, and just the badass-ary of a superhero film, I don’t have to tell you to go catch Avengers: Age of Ultron, cause I believe that you eventually just will. A must watch for all you superhero movie junkies for sure!

Big thank you to Disney for sending Radio Heatwave down to catch the preview of Avengers: Age of Ultron! You made our dreams come true! :)

Pats on back, because on 28 April 2015, I conquered my fears (okay, not really) and willingly went to watch a horror movie. Radio Heatwave was given a pair of media passes by sponsors United International Pictures (Singapore) to catch the preview of UNFRIENDED, the latest teenage horror flick to hit the cinemas. Thanks guys!

Due to my lack of experience watching horror movies, I’m certainly no expert. Nevertheless, I have to say that UNFRIENDED has a different element from other movies that made it suspenseful yet entertaining. Unlike typical horror movies that take place in a dimly lit house with decades and centuries of being cursed and whatnot, UNFRIENDED took place completely on something very relatable to me - via Skype, Facebook, and on a Macbook.

The story revolves around teenage drama that all students are used to. Quick breakdown of the plot: these 6 teenagers on the Skype call somehow contributed to the suicide of Laura Barns, who is back on her death anniversary for revenge. This is a scenario that actually is possible (well, not the supernatural part), as we all know that teenage suicide and cyberbullying are real situations that take place in society. Apart from this, the movie also included things like cheating on your bf/gf, drug trafficking etc.

One of the reasons why I managed to sit through this entire movie is the fact that there was comedy injected into the plot, such as certain iTunes music playing at inappropriate moments when something bad was going to happen. Instead of the audience fearing for their lives that Laura Barns was going to get them, they chuckled. Another thing that I have to note about this movie is that the jump scares are toned down a lot. I have watched movies where you can actually physically see the ghost constantly appearing. For this movie, you hardly see Laura, which makes her appearances even more impactful.

Of course, we have our horror movie cliches in this film as well. I don’t understand why people just cannot stay away when others tell them to not provoke the ghost! Don’t do something because it will kill you, don’t do something because it will kill you, don’t do something because it will k- oh wait, that guy just contacted the ghost. The whole cinema groaned. I could even hear some literal facepalms. (Including my own ugh)

I wouldn’t say that UNFRIENDED was the best movie that I’ve ever watched, but I can say that it certainly was entertaining. For horror junkies out that who are sick of the same formula being used time and time again, perhaps UNFRIENDED would be something to try out.

I attended the premiere of ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ at The Cathay, a couple of days before the actual release. I was so excited for the movie, especially since I loved the first instalment. Can you believe it has been 3 years since the first movie was released? Anna Kendrick’s “Cups (When I’m Gone)” is still in my head! The first movie has become so big that they managed to get many big stars this time around, along with the stellar main cast. Comedian Keegan Michael Key, YouTube star Flula, actual acapella band Pentatonix, rapper Snoop Dogg (or Lion?) and actress/model Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Emily, a talented freshman that wants to get into the Barden Bellas because her mom was in the group during her university days.

Somehow, they got actual players from the Green Bay Packers football team to sing in an acapella show-off with Barden Bellas, The Treblemakers, and Das Sound Machine! Wait, I think I am getting ahead of myself...

Humans never learn. You would think that after almost getting eaten up and having their cities destroyed would stop them from recreating dinosaurs. Instead, they open up a theme park on a secluded island somewhere in Costa Rica. What’s the theme of the theme park you ask? Well dinosaurs of course! Set in the same island where the events of Jurassic Park III took place, Jurassic World tells the story of how if you decide to play god, you usually end up in-between a velociraptor’s jaws...

“I’ll be back.” said the Terminator, and he made sure that his return was noticed with more explosions, robot killing and a quest to alter the future by going back into the past in the 5th instalment of the Terminator franchise. Being chased by enemies that just doesn’t seem to die as they attempt to alter the future, the play on time sets the movie in an interesting timeline that will engage you from start to end....

VIBE BEACH SPORTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL

There are many types of people in this world. There are the athletes – the early risers who get up before sunrise for that refreshing morning jog, and the partygoers – a breed of nocturnal creatures who roll into bed at sunrise after a night of dancing and way too many shots. I, for one, fall under neither of the two categories. With that said, the Vibe Beach Sports & Music Festival was undoubtedly something very different for me.

Be it soccer, beach volleyball or the ever-so-tiring Zumba, Vibe had it all. The Vibe Beach Sports & Music Festival took place at Sentosa’s Siloso Beach, and was the first event of its kind to ever be held in Singapore. “A celebration of the dynamism of both sports and music”, as festival project director David Thomas referred it to, both elements of which he said were “natural complements to one another”. Now wasn’t that a brilliant idea?...

The Grizzle Grind Crew (GGC) was formed in 2013, with a mission to push the boundaries of Hip-Hop culture and lifestyle in Singapore. They are made up of passionate and talented individuals - Rappers, Turntablists, Beat-boxers, Singers, Photographers, Filmmakers and Designers.

They had their second anniversary party at *SCAPE, The Ground Theatre on April 5, 7pm - 12am. I stood at the back, with an aerial view of the whole arena. It was 30 mins before the start of the show and over 100 fans had already filled the place.

The stage crew was making their final rounds. “I’ve never seen such an elaborate set up,” said event organiser, Daniel Lim.

And then, the lights dimmed...

When it comes to coffee, I must say that I’m not that much of a fan. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m totally fine with drinking Milk Coffee or a Caramel Frappuccino. But drinking coffee black, that’s a totally different story.

So when Mileage Communications invited us for a coffee tasting session with Cafédirect, I can honestly say that I did not expect much. But man, was I blown away.

But first, what’s Cafédirect?...

YouTube FanFest 2015 brought together YouTubers from all over the globe for a weekend of meet & greets, workshops and epic performances. This festival marked a step forward for our local music scene as we witness international stars collaborating with our local talents - making music that’s soon to be (or have been) released on YouTube.

The highlights of YouTube FanFest 2015 in Singapore were the Saturday & Sunday main shows. Fans got a taste of both international and local voices live, instead of usually watching these performers from a screen...
