Café events in honour of celebrating Korean pop idols are all the rage these days. I swear that every time I go to NU Sentral (especially on the weekend), almost all the cafes in the mall are packed with Kpop stans. What a great time to be a café owner, huh?
Anyway, when I looked into this phenomenon, I figured out that these gatherings of Kpop stans at these cafes are called ‘cup sleeve events’ because apparently when you purchase beverage at these cafes, you are entitled to get a special custom made cup sleeve, printed with awesome designs and the picture of the idol you’re celebrating.
Aside from that, there are countless of other freebies you can get when you attend such events. Things like photo cards, small banners and hand fans are everywhere. Kpop stans are really generous when it comes to distributing freebies to their fellow fans of the same boy band or girl group.
So, I have also looked into 3 major occasions that warrant these fans to organise a cup sleeve event for their favourite idols.
The most common one. It’s just like a typical birthday party usually. On top of the cup sleeves and other freebies, there is also a custom designed cake. And every time I participate in a birthday event for a Kpop idol, the design of the cake is definitely the highlight of the event. Because these fans can get really creative with the cake designs and I’m always impressed with the effort they put into celebrating their favourite idol’s birthday.
2. Debut anniversary
Also common because each and every Korean pop group has a date that they treasure most because this date marks the beginning of their journey in the music industry. So, as this anniversary is important to the idols, it is also very important to the fans as well.
If birthday events are usually fun and celebrative, anniversary events are always celebrated with the sentiment of joy and pride, and sometimes, they can get a little bit touching. You can really see how proud these fans are as they celebrate their favourite artists’ beginnings and achievements.
3. Album release
Honestly, I’ve never attended one that celebrate an album release or launch. But I heard that there are fans who organise café events to celebrate their idols’ hard work in releasing their latest songs or videos. And sometimes, they are promoting their beloved group’s new song better than the group’s management company, which never fails to touch my heart on how dedicated these Kpop stans are.
So, as a conclusion, I would say that I foresee these café events to be even more popular as time goes by. The reason why? It’s all because of these dedicated fans who are looking to meet other people who are just like them and make friends in the process. Honestly, the solidarity amongst Kpop fans is always amazing.
In case you’re looking to make gathering events like these café events even more memorable and awesome, you can take it up a notch and use photo booth rental service. I mean, you get to immortalise the special moments with your old and new friends. Tired of distributing photo cards as freebies? Use that awesome creativity that you have as you design the cake to design cute custom made band t-shirts. An amazing way to promote the togetherness in Kpop community, indeed!
Ever woke up in the middle of the night with somewhat ridiculous and yet ground breaking idea that makes you want to turn on your laptop to write about The Million Dollar Idea as you also write your resignation letter so that you can quit that job you’re already tired of? Think this is just a dream? Are you going to just brush it off? Are you sure?
Yeah, you’re not sure. Life is beautiful like that. Nothing is really a sure thing. But you will never know if you don’t try, now, will you?
So, do it. Chase your dream (quite literally). There is a reason why start-up business is all the rage these days. Get out there and make your own business. Be your own boss. Go online and make the business plan, do your research. There are people out there could benefit from your idea. Look up what people need, what’s on demand right now. Plant the seed of your genius idea and harvest it into existence. You can do it!
Feel motivated yet?
Alright, hold on to that motivation and start spreading your ideas like wildfire (make sure you have your ideas patented first, okay? Keep the idea thieves out), so that you can begin to gather your very own cult. Okay, not cult, but you get what I mean. Start-up business needs people, you need a team to support your ideas and visions. Be it your friends or family or total strangers who share your work ethics and your visions in this business, you need to gather awesome people in your team so that you can brainstorm for a business plan.
I’m not saying you can’t make it on your own but two heads are better than one. Five to six heads should be even better then. You have only one perspective and working with other people will broaden your mind to take up other perspectives to form solid opinions about something. No man is an island, right?
Although you have to remember that too many cooks will spoil the soup. So, you have to be smart about it and make a team properly. Draw the line between not enough and too much. After all, this is your Million Dollar Idea, so you should have the final say in the important things. As I’ve said before, be your own boss and be the boss to your team. Lead them to go down the path you want to pave.
Need something to motivate the team of your start-up business? I have just the right idea for you to make sure your team will feel like a team. Togetherness is important in a group, so make your own custom t-shirts for your startup company. Who knows? These t-shirts could be your company’s uniform.
There are a lot of angles when it comes to wedding themed movies. Mainly because there are so much to unpack. You would think that wedding, and subsequently marriage, only ever involves and concerns two people: the bride and the groom who are actually the main characters.
But you have got so much movies that feature the bride and the groom as background characters rather than the stars of the show. And these other people are usually the wildcards who are probably going to ruin the wedding. If you’re like me and you like watching wedding related movies, you must have seen a lot of weddings getting ruined.
So, let’s talk about the wedding movies out there. There are movies about the bridesmaids (Bridesmaids, obviously and 27 Dresses, definitely one of my absolute favourites), the groomsmen (The Hangovers, there are three of them for crying out loud), the Officiant (License to Wed, Robin Williams, I miss you), the wedding guests (Wedding Crashers and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), the family (oh god, the in-laws drama which made watching 2 My Big Fat Greek Weddings totally worth it) and so on and so forth. Trust me, I could go on and on and on with this list because I have had my share in watching funny and/or emotional wedding themed movies but I kind of have to get to the point by now.
Anyway, if any of you have watched The Five Year Engagement, you would know that a lot can get ugly in the time period after being proposed to up until being officially married finally. They were engaged for five whole years. It’s so unusually ridiculous because that’s just not it, fam. And don’t even get me started on how the Mother and Ted were engaged for five years and have their two children before a wedding even happen (although that’s not the only thing I’m mad about the series. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about).
If you go by the usual slash normal steps of the way leading up to the big day, you would have: the proposal, the engagement party, the bridal shower, the bachelorette party, the bachelor party, the rehearsal dinner, the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. And yes, usually in that order, give and take a few changes here and there.
So yeah, with all those events you have to arrange and/or attend, there are bound to be great experiences and happy incidents. Especially for the bride and groom, because trust me, whether you register for gifts or not, people are definitely going to get you great wedding gifts and wedding wishes. Oh, hire a photographer and videographer if you can afford them because you’re going to want to look back to this big day of yours.
If you’re appointed as the maid of honour or the best man, you might think that it’s a huge responsibility since you’re probably going to be unpaid wedding planner. But it would all be worth it when the day of wedding comes. And you will definitely feel appreciated when you see the face of the bride or the groom during their bachelor or bachelorette party. To make sure you’re making memorable parties, you should definitely get awesome wedding t-shirts for the bridal party and the entourage. Plus exclusive t-shirts for the ones getting hitched. Because there might be the bad and the ugly as you taking the steps from engagement to the wedding but you need to stay for the good.
What’s the thing about a gift that makes people love to receive it and to give it to other people?
Gifts are meant to bring joy. Do you remember the feeling when you first laid eyes on your first present or when someone you like presented you with a gift?
