How To Prepare For A Chinese New Year Party In 2020

Image result for chinese new year
Image retrieved from https://www.chinaimportal.com/blog/chinese-new-year-impacts-import-business/

With Christmas and New Year’s Eve being over,  that could only mean that Chinese New Year is right around the corner; 25th January to be exact.

Nearly everyone has heard of Chinese New Year, more correctly termed as the Lunar New Year.  This holiday is widely celebrated in Singapore, but not many are sure of how to go about planning a Chinese New Year party due to the next generation being more westernized.

Putting together a Chinese New Year party is fun, cultural, and unique; consider it an excellent excuse to get your family and friends together in January for something educational and enjoyable!

If you don’t feel like going from door-to-door to visit relatives this year, consider organizing your own little gathering to usher in some good fortune and to avoid being alone on such an auspicious period! Your friends and family will appreciate the opportunity to get together and bond over good food, drinks, and games!

1) Sending Invitations

Image result for cny invitations

Mailing out invitations may feel slightly formal, but we guarantee that it builds excitement and authenticity.

Whether you invite guests via the old-fashioned snail mail or social media, you should always include some basic suggestions and instructions in the invitation. Some attendees who are not Chinese, may not know what a Chinese New Year party entails; so help them out a bit by stating what is to be expected such as not turning up in a black colored outfit.

You can suggest that guests bring small gifts in red envelopes; also known as hong bao, that contain cash in them. These are especially important if there are children attending the party.

However, do keep your instructions in the invitation simple, or people may begin to think that your party requires way too much effort and thus not show up.

2) Attire

Buying a new outfit or wearing one that has not been previously worn, is the standard custom for Chinese New Year.

Avoid showing up in black or white clothing on Chinese New Year; both are colors traditionally worn for mourning in Chinese culture. Gray, charcoal, and ashen colors fall into this category too.

Opt for vibrant colors such as red and gold whenever possible; after all, Chinese New Year is probably the only occasion that gives you an excuse to go all out when choosing an outfit color!

If you still can’t find a suitable outfit, then you can give a nod to tradition by wearing a red accessory! Think red scarves, red bottoms, or a ruby ring!

3) Hygiene

Image result for cny nails

Any cutting done during Chinese New Year is deemed as unlucky. That is why you should trim your nails, shave, and get a haircut before the holiday if necessary.

If you really want to follow superstition, then avoid washing your hair on the Lunar New Year as it is considered risky since that act symbolizes washing away new good luck accumulated.

4) Food For The Party

Image result for cny food

Luckily for you, there are three options for organizing your Chinese New Year food; prepare everything yourself, purchase what you can from the supermarket, or let a Chinese restaurant prepare everything for you.

If you decide to let a restaurant take care of the food, then you should place your order days in advance because Chinese restaurants will be inundated with orders during Chinese New Year.

However, it is important that you take special consideration when choosing the food; don’t just randomly select them just because they are from a Chinese caterer. Even down to the smallest snacks, most of the food served on Chinese New Year is symbolic and has centuries of tradition behind it.

5) Sweep Away The Bad Luck

If you already have a party space in mind to host your party, clean it before the start of the Chinese New Year. This is because it is traditionally done to sweep away bad luck from the current year.

After guests arrive, have them remove their shoes and place them near the door to encourage a clean and smooth transition into the new year.

Not a bad way to get started on your spring cleaning checklist, eh?

6) Decorate With The Color Red

Image result for cny red deco
Image retrieved from https://www.topchinatravel.com/china-guide/chinese-new-year-decoration.htm

One Chinese New Year custom is to hang red paper decorations in windows and almost everywhere else.

This is because it is believed that this tradition derived from an ancient legend involving a beast called Nian, who was known to be terrified of the color red.

Red also symbolizes power, happiness, and vitality, so you’ll want to use red wherever you can in your decor.

Red velvet cake, anyone?

7) Add Gold Highlights

Image retrieved from https://shopee.sg/Partyforte-CNY-Rotating-LED-Pineapple-And-Ingot-Deco-i.88118897.1834816300

Although traditional Chinese New Year decor is red, it is accented with gold. This is because gold represents wealth, good fortune and prosperity.

It is also a new year tradition to write messages wishing good luck, good fortune, wealth, prosperity and longevity and to place those messages where people will find them.

For an added touch, write the messages in gold ink on red paper. You can even make the invitations red with gold writing.

8) Go In Accordance To The Zodiac Animals

Image result for year of rat
Image retrieved from https://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/chinese-zodiac/rat.htm

Chinese tradition holds that every new year is imbued with the characteristics of one of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

It’s also a tradition to decorate the party space with images of the incoming zodiac animal.

For 2020, it is the year of the rat, so your party decor should include at least a few rat figurines and photos.

9) Include Dragons

Image result for cny dragon deco

Dragons are another popular symbol for Chinese New Year as they symbolize strength, goodness and good luck as well as supernatural forces.

Hence, you would want to include dragons in the party decorations too. For example, you can consider stretching a long red or gold dragon garland along the ceiling or wall.

10) Chinese New Year Gift Exchange

Image result for hong bao
Image retrieved from https://www.thefinder.com.sg/healthy-living/ask-the-experts/everything-you-need-know-about-red-packets-chinese-new-year/

Guests may not be in too big of a hurry to buy and exchange gifts again in the wake of Christmas, although etiquette dictates that they bring something small to the party.

You can reciprocate with witty door gifts or personalized items for each friend. Gifts can be in the form of small trinkets, red envelopes with small amounts of money or gift cards inside; hong baos, or even candy.

Although more effort is required, each gift should be catered to a specific guest and represent some wish you have for their prosperity or health in the new lunar year. For this reason, thoughtfulness is more important than the monetary value of the gift. A quick, inexpensive way to customize gifts is to print favorite photos of the two of you.

Chinese gift-giving dictates that handkerchiefs, watches, white flowers, or anything sharp, should not be given to another person. Watches indicate that time is running out for them and that they are going to pass away soon, and sharp objects represent the cutting of ties.

On the other hand, gifts that relate to the number "4" should not be given. This is because the Chinese word for “four” sounds close to the word for death. Gifts that come in pairs or related to the number "2" are ideal.

11) Chinese New Year Games and Entertainment

Image result for cny games
Image retrieved from https://blog.partydelights.co.uk/chinese-new-year-games-and-activities/

You may want to incorporate some Chinese New Year entertainment beyond just enjoying food and drinks.

Games involving skills with chopsticks are a popular tradition and are also easy to set up.

With some uncooked rice, beans, other hard-to-pick-up items and a timer, you can come up with all kinds of simple, creative games that are good for laughs.

However, do note that the games shouldn’t involve guests passing items to each other using the chopsticks; passing bones with chopsticks is a funeral rite in Asia.

Calligraphy contests are also an easy way to have some cultural fun. Have supplies on hand for each guest to try then judge the results and offer small prizes.

Origami, although usually associated with Japanese culture, is another cultural way to keep everyone occupied. Besides, the Chinese do have a legacy of paper-folding art known as zhe zhi.

With that being said, if you still have no party venue in mind to host your Chinese New Year party, then consider hosting it at Hyperspace! This is because Hyperspace is a new events space; thus, it would be very fitting for the Chinese New Year party!

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone!

Instead of throwing just any old New Year’s dinner party, have a potluck that requires each guest to bring a dish from another cuisine around the world.

Do make sure that there are no replicas; meaning no two people should have the same cuisines. This is to ensure that your guests have a diverse range of foods to eat and sample.

This is an excellent idea because it allows friends to share their own heritage with each other, or try making new dishes that they’ve never made before.

Don’t forget to whip up a cheese board and other finger foods too! Adding a mulled wine to the menu would also be a refined choice.

Nobody will be mad about going into 2020 with a slice or two cinnamon-spiced pie in their stomachs.

Throw a party where everyone dresses up from their favorite decade, and you might find yourself not only celebrating 2020, but 1920, 1950, and 1980 too.

To throw a decades party theme, just pick a decade.

A karaoke party is a great party theme if you love music and singing. The main fun of a karaoke theme party is getting the opportunity to take the spotlight and belt out your favorite song lyrics.

Maybe you can sing well, or maybe you sound like a drowning dog; it does not matter. Karaoke is all about having a blast and singing like no one is listening, in a judgment-free zone.

Popular TV can lend itself well to a karaoke party; so why not consider throwing an American idol party, The Voice party, X-Factor party, or perhaps a Glee theme party?

16) Poker Night Party Theme

Gamble the night away without forfeiting tons of your hard-earned cash.

Have guests trade $20 for poker chips so no one is tempted to bet the farm, and serve plenty of finger foods and drinks.

If you win the jackpot, you're guaranteed bragging rights until the next New Year's party.

Sre, this is Singapore; where there’s no snow and no ski lodge fresh from the icy slopes. But apres-ski means “after ski”, so you can definitely turn that vibe into a party theme.

You may have heard that there ain’t no party like a Gatsby party, because a Gatsby party don’t stop until at least two people are dead and everyone is disillusioned with the Jazz Age as a whole… ok, that took a dark turn. But the point is, Gatsby-themed parties are excellent for anyone who isn’t Gatsby or Daisy; a.k.a everyone on your guest list.

There's no point in doing a Great Gatsby New Year's party unless you pull out all the stops and use every trick up your sleeve to create a fantastic experience for your friends and family.

When you think of New Year, you certainly expect there to be plenty of drinks flowing and sweet concoctions of alcohol being made.  So for your party, you’re going to do the same!

Serve up some bubbly sweet champagne with a spread of finger food! Decorate your party space with gold glitter; anything that sparkles! This is a New Year’s party after all, so there’s no harm going all out for it!

You could host a dance-off competition on the dance floor and get your guests to bust off their best moves! Who knows, maybe the guy whom you thought couldn’t dance is actually the best dancer you’ve ever seen!

21) Winter Wonderland Party Theme

This party theme can take ideas from Halloween Town, Christmas Town, or both. It will be like celebrating Halloween during the Holidays; giving any party a completely different look and feel. Let’s just say, this Christmas party is more on the gothic side.

Odd décors will do in creating a Goth atmosphere. Some examples include oblong armchairs and gangly iron bars.

While facilitating Nightmare-inspired games, have the DJ play songs from the movie as well as other gothic rock tracks.

3) A Christmas Story

Image retrieved from https://hizonscatering.com/planning-guide/6-unique-company-christmas-party-theme-ideas/

This party theme takes inspiration from the 1989 film about 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, who wants a Red Ryder BB gun for a Christmas present. The movie, which was set in the 1940s, is a classic and one of the most well-loved holiday movies of all time.

This theme is for those who love following old traditions.

For your party, you can center the celebration on holiday traditions in the 1940s or 1980s. For example, you can put traditional evergreen décors and life-sized leg lamps; these would look perfect for picture-taking!

4) Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory

Image result for willy wonka and the chocolate factory christmas party
Image retrieved from https://www.officechristmas.co.uk/christmas-party/willy-wonka-and-the-chocolate-factory/

Inspired from the 1971 and 2005 adaptation of the book and movie entitled “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, he story revolves around lucky children who won a golden ticket and got a chance to tour the factory.

Knowingly, this holiday soiree will be pure elation!

Prior to the party, you can send your party guests a golden ticket as a party invite.

Candies and chocolates can then double as decors while the Christmas tree can be decorated with all-edible candy bars as well as other chocolate goodies; just like in the movie!

You can even add a chocolate fondue with fruits on the side; this would surely be a crowd-pleaser.

Essentially, anything with a kick of sweetness will be perfect to complement the theme.

5) Circus

A circus-themed celebration is often entertaining and dazzling. Nonetheless, the whole point about this theme is all about the visual effect and overall ambiance.

Proper decorative elements should be evident to support the circus theme. Examples include long bright red draperies. There can also be funny mirrors, throwing games, hok-a-duck, pitching pennies, etc.

Nonetheless, what will make this party a true Cirque du Soleil-inspired celebration; is the entertainment. As much as possible, there should be a ringmaster, fire breathers, jugglers, stilt walkers, and acrobat performers.

6) Masquerade Ball

A masquerade ball theme is suitable for those who fancy an extravagant holiday celebration. Masquerade props such as decorative masks complete with feathers and luxurious drapery are a must. Purple and gold will be the perfect colors of the day.

Amidst the glittering sight of candelabras and chandeliers, a jazz band can also accompany the masquerade-themed party. Other forms of entertainment include magicians, dancers, and comedians. Expect music from “Phantom of the Opera”.

7) White Christmas

Image result for white christmas party

Drawing inspiration from the old-fashioned Holiday setting, this theme involves everything to be white. As such, decors must be all white or off-white with silver as an accent color. There should be a white Christmas tree and white snowflakes as well. Silver-wrapped presents can also be placed under the tree, to turn the venue into a winter wonderland.

Guests will also be expected to show up in all-white attire, in order to complement the theme.

8) The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

Think horrid Christmas sweaters in horrible shades of green, brown, and purple; the ones which your Grandma buys you every year and you throw it into the deepest darkest depths of your closet as soon as Christmas is over.

Well, dig out those beastly sweaters because you’re going to need them for this year’s Christmas party theme.

Everyone will be required to find and wear a Christmas sweater to the party; anyone who doesn’t will be given one of the spare sweaters you have on hand, and a pair of reindeer ears or some other kind of embarrassing prop for good measure.

9) Santa’s Workshop

Ever wondered what Santa is making in the North Pole?  Why don’t you find out yourself!

Set up your party venue to look like Santa’s workshop; a corner for Santa visits, piles of presents ready to go on the sleigh, and different workstations where busy elves have fun activities for guests to do.

All you have to do is get a colleague to wear a Santa suit; there will definitely be willing participants. Everyone can then take turns getting a picture with Santa; as the night goes on, the pictures will no doubt get sillier and sillier. It can be fun to also supply a few props to make the photographs even more interesting.

At each elf workstation, you can include different activities that test either the guest’s creativity or teambuilding talents. Build bridges through games such as charades or a friendly game of poker!

10) Winter Wonderland

Image result for winter wonderland party

For those of us who live in Singapore, there’s just something magical about a white Christmas; where the whole world is covered in snow, and there is ice skating and hot chocolate with people wearing bright scarves and hats.

Embrace the season with a Winter Wonderland theme! Decorate your party space to lool like a wintery ice kingdom, with white draping, fairy lights, glittering snowflakes, and cuddly polar bear plushies.

For drinks, serve an icy vodka cocktail with some delicious, warming mulled wine. The food served should be warm and comforting; think savory broths and juicy meats.

For games, you could perhaps use a casino poker table or pool table, and pit different departments against each other!

11) Narnia Christmas Party

Image result for narnia christmas theme

For your party, transform your party space into a music hall filled with party people, celebrated musicians playing swing and jazz music, and rooms oozed with glamour!

Integrate a photo booth to give guests a chance to take away memorabilia from the “Roaring 20s” event!

This theme is all about glitz and glamour of the elegant 1920s, and it's all about executing it in style.

With so many different twists to take on the much-loved classic, your Alice In Wonderland themed party can be whatever you make it.

Join the Mad Hatter for a riot of a sit-down meal with cake, tea, and of course; lots of laughter.

For drinks, take some inspiration from the famous story and have “Drink Me” welcome drinks. A buffet with tempting finger food would also work well! Think feather-light sandwiches and dainty sweet treats. If you’re wondering what to serve for dessert, try cake pops and cookies in the shape of love hearts; or try cupcakes adorned with the words “Eat Me”.

15) Christmas Cocktail Party

Be sure to get an unbiased party judge to critique everyone’s finished creations, or leave it up to an Instagram vote!

Send the victor home with a small gift or sweet treat; scented Christmas candles are always a good idea because they smell good and can keep a person warm this chilly season.

19) Hot Cocoa Exchange Party

If cookies aren’t your thing, then host a cocoa exchange party instead!

Just try to make sure that there are at least four people in attendance so you all can walk away with a new variety of hot cocoa to try each week leading up to Christmas.

Be sure to store your mix in a glass mason jar instead of a plastic bag; this would help retain its flavor better.

You can also try adding marshmallows to your hot cocoa for a creamier and fun addition!

Image retrieved from https://www.inc.com/dorcas-cheng-tozun/why-holiday-office-parties-are-still-a-good-idea.html

When it comes to dinner parties, table talk is very crucial yet often overlooked. It is the one thing that cannot be set up in advance.

However, that doesn’t mean you cannot be prepared. With the holiday season imminent, we came up with a list of 21 tips for fascinating table talk at your next dinner party.

1) Consciously Seek Out Conducive Environments

Image result for conducive dinner environment
Image retrieved from https://www.restobiz.ca/five-ways-to-improve-the-ambiance-of-your-restaurant/

In order to have meaningful conversations, you must be able to hear one another properly.

Background music would be an ideal way to create the right atmosphere, but the volume cannot be too loud that you find yourself struggling to hear.

2) Warm Up the Crowd

Image result for dinner table conversations
Image retrieved from https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/7-ways-navigate-uncomfortable-conversations-holiday-dinner-table/

This is one of the most crucial steps because small talk gives guests a chance to get to know one another better and to take one another’s measure before the conversation turns to weightier matters.

It’s like a warm-up before sports activities.

3) Be a Conversation Conduit

Image result for laughing at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.masterfile.com/search/en/people+laughing+at+dinner+table

Stimulate open communication; don’t leave some guests nodding their heads and pretending they know what’s going on. Often, clarification is required.

If you see a guest mumbling, restate a phrase for people who could not hear what was being said.

If a guest makes an inside joke, go ahead and laugh; and then put it on the context for everyone.

4) Have One Conversation at a Time

Having only one conversation at a time helps everyone to stay focused on the main topic at hand. It prevents conversations from becoming messy, and it also reduces the chances of a guest feeling left out.

5) Less Talking, More Listening

The sad truth is that; no one cares what you have to say. They only care about what they have to say.

This is because deep down, people want to feel that they’ve been heard; they will if you let them talk.

6) Embrace Complicated Topics

We all know what society tells us not to talk about at a dinner party; religion, politics, salaries, etc.

Yet, these topics should be fair game; what’s a dinner party if not a laboratory of ideas?

7) Provocation with Style

Don’t worry about dangerous conversational territory; the most memorable conversations are a product of guests who dare to provoke, titillate, and argue.

The trick is to create a permissive atmosphere with civility and style, something like a “ladylike broad’; half-civilized charmer, half wisecracking bomb-thrower.

8) Keep Arguments Low-Key

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table

A single conversation will not convince a lifelong liberal that it’s ok to own an arsenal of assault rifles.

In simple terms, arguments are not worth it because it is highly unlikely that the other party would change their opinions overnight. Accept this.

It is amazing how much more relaxed a political argument becomes when you understand that you do not have to, and in fact; won't win.

9) Personalize your Politics

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table

Go for empathy when you talk politics; showing how a political issue affects you intimately is more important than data and statistics.

Try leading with a personal story.

10) 2 W’s: What and Why

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.climatesolutions.org/article/1574879291-climate-conversations-belong-your-table

In order to ensure that a guest’s story becomes truly interesting, just ask two questions over and over again; what and why.

“What exactly happened? What did it feel like? Why is that so?”

Seek emotional specifics and then ask the guests for the reason behind it. This is where the guest’s most thoughtful connection to a story lies.

11) Venture into the Unconventional

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/social-media-marketing-update-its-complicated/1665996

Small talk need not be soporific. Before the party, try finding some recent news or peculiar science stories that people most likely have not heard about.

12) Don’t Assume

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.glamour.com/story/big-little-lies-is-having-the-tough-conversations-about-sexual-assault

Asking questions is a great way to get guests to reveal something fascinating about themselves.

However, one should always avoid throwing in possible answers with your question. For example, “why did you quit business school? Was it too boring?”

Leave out the guess; a short question is more likely to provoke details.

13) Ask Open-Ended Questions

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.forbes.com/sites/melodywilding/2016/12/15/the-best-way-to-explain-your-job-to-your-family/#52e66fed266e

As a host, you need to be the one asking interesting questions. This can be done through posing a series of open-ended questions; so that people will elaborate and give some more insight into themselves as a person.

14) Ask A Second Question

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table
Image retrieved from https://www.themuse.com/advice/how-to-change-the-world-from-your-desk-use-your-talents-to-help-others

The most interesting conversations come after the initial answer.

It takes extraordinary discipline to refrain from answering your own question and instead, ask a second question. Yet, this is where the deepest conversations occur.

15) Draw out those who are Reticent to Speak

Image result for complicated conversations at dinner table

In any group, there will be people who are natural talkers, and those who are contented with just listening.

Draw out the latter. This is because the best contributions sometimes come from those who won’t answer unless asked.

As the saying goes, “still waters run deep.”

16) Pay Attention to People’s Physical Needs

Do remember to pay attention to your guests at all times.

Constantly scan the table to see who needs drink refills or who might like a second helping. This is to prevent your guests from thinking about these things so that the conversation can be the primary focus.

This requires that you see yourself as a facilitator.

17) Affirm people, even if you disagree with them

Related image

People whom you disagree with might actually be more interesting than you think. This is because you’ll be hearing from a different perspective; thus, having an opportunity and potential of learning something new.

Try seeing and understanding from their perspectives; what different experiences they might have.

18) Share about yourself

Image result for dinner parties sharing
Image retrieved from https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/15-guest-mistakes-frustrate-dinner-party-hosts/

Share things about yourself to avoid getting stuck only asking questions. We don’t want to end up asking too many questions in a row, and also not talk too much about ourselves.

So how do you find the balance?  A good rule of thumb is the IFR method:

Inquire: Ask a sincere question

Follow Up: Ask a follow-up question

Relate: Share a little bit about yourself that is related to what they said

After you have linked it up, ask a new sincere question (Inquire); and that’s the loop.

19) Tone Of Voice

Image result for dinner parties sharing
Image retrieved from https://www.virgin.com/richard-branson/my-second-dream-dinner-party

How you come across when you start talking to someone is less about what you say, and more about how you say it.

Many focus too much on saying the right words that they forgot how they say it.

You want to have a friendly and relaxed tone of voice; if you do, you don’t have to worry about the exact words you use.

You don’t need to be confident to sound friendly and relaxed.

20) Look for Common Ground

Image result for dinner parties sharing
Image retrieved from https://www.punchbowl.com/p/mexican-dinner-party

This one is the easiest if you know that most of your guests would have something in common; usually, that is the case since they are at your party.

When you bring up what you have in common, you make an instant connection; leading to more things to talk about.

21) Ask for Help or Information

Image result for dinner parties sharing
Image retrieved from https://www.ourfabriq.com/article/dinner-party-steps-meaningful-conversation

Much like asking for an opinion, asking for a little help or guidance can be an excellent way to make your guests feel useful.

Just make sure whatever you’re asking for is something the other party will be able to offer without embarrassing and putting themselves out.

Image retrieved from https://www.topresume.com/career-advice/how-to-make-the-most-of-your-next-networking-event

Love them or hate them, parties are an integral part of our lives. They are where people meet prospective business partners, future romantic partners, and friends; it is a place where small talk becomes the stuff of life.

Who among us; save the most charismatic and self-sufficient partygoer; wouldn’t like to be better at parties?

If this is you, then today is your lucky day because we are going to teach you the 21 crucial steps to being better at parties. This includes making seamless, beautiful small talks that lead to important conversations and connections. We will teach and help ease you into mingling effortlessly and also demonstrate the right way to leave; while saving your reputation.

So let’s go forth and get partying!

The Arrival

First impressions are crucial; here are the steps you should take to make arriving at a party more fulfilling and less stressful.

Step 1: Have a Purpose

Related image

Unless you’re the most gregarious of extroverts, one of the issues with parties is the feeling of walking into a room full of strangers. Or perhaps, you’re only vaguely connected to the host; who will most definitely be busy hosting and entertaining other guests.

The question now is; how are you going to start a conversation at a party with a complete stranger or someone you barely know?

But, there is a reason why you’re attending this party. If there isn’t, then you should start rethinking your decisions for going to this party; better to say no and save yourself from the agony of canceling.

However, let’s assume you do want to go; you need to take a moment to identify realistically, what your purpose for attending is. Is it; to make a business connection, to meet a new friend, to have intellectual conversations, to taste some new food or wine, or to relax?

After defining your purpose, setting a goal for attending the party becomes easier. You would then know what to accomplish before you leave.

Step 2: Find Your Ensemble

Party prepping should involve what you are going to wear.

Pick a tried-and-true outfit, something that taps into the best version of yourself; as opposed to something that makes you feel self-conscious, or that you will be constantly adjusting.

Step 3: What to Bring

Image result for networking party door gifts
Image retrieved from https://www.eventbrite.com/blog/swag-bag-ideas-ds00/

The classic rule is to show up with something in hand; however, nowadays you don’t need to show up with something for your friends.

If you feel more comfortable arriving with a bottle of wine or a token of your appreciation, then, by all means, go for it. If they say “just bring yourself”, then you can take them for their word.

Bear in mind that conversation is part of what you bring to any social event. Always be prepared with 3 topics to talk about; they can be about anything that intrigues you at the moment. You need not even talk about them; they’re just there as a backup if you need them.

Step 4: Arrive on Time and Go Alone

Image result for arriving on time
Image retrieved from https://supplyclouds.com/the-stress-of-arriving-on-time/

Forget what everyone has been saying about “arriving fashionably late” and with a posse of friends.

The very best time to arrive at a party is right when it starts; before everyone is ensconced in conversations and you find yourself in the position of having to work your way into established groups.

If you can bear it, go alone; and watch as the other guests make a beeline toward you. The person who walks alone is usually the most approachable person.

If you do arrive in a couple or group, you might go so far as to separate from them in order to truly maximize your mingling.

Step 5: Greetings

Image result for networking party door gifts
Image retrieved from https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/276483

Getting past the initial hellos can be a judgment itself; do you hug, shake hands, or kiss on one cheek in the European style? What if you are them hate being touched?

Pay attention to other people’s cues instead of adhering to some global rule of what one should do in any particular moment. This is because you should respect the boundaries the other person sets up. When it comes to manners, you’ve got to be a chameleon and adapt.

However, if something makes you uncomfortable, you should also let the other person know politely.

Time to Mingle

Now that you have arrived at the party, it is time to start meeting your fellow partygoers and impressing them with your witty, warm repartee.

But how do you do that?

Step 6: Look Around and Smile

Image result for be better at networking events
Image retrieved from https://sandiegopros.org/2019/05/event-networking-5-ways-to-do-it-better/

You’ve arrived on time; whether by yourself or not, with a gift in hand, or simply your presence as your present. You know what you want to accomplish and you have conversational topics in the back pocket of your carefully selected outfit; it’s time to shine!

The first couple of minutes are the most crucial. If you can win them over with your smile and make eye contact, you would instantly be put in the right place.

You’ll know when someone is looking to chat if they are scanning the room. If you see someone like that, then that is the perfect person to approach.

Step 7: Give Yourself a Job

Image result for serving drinks at a party
Image retrieved from https://www.dreamstime.com/photos-images/serving-drinks.html

If you feel vehemently awkward about standing in the middle of the room and smiling, or approaching someone else; then you should make yourself occupied by having a job at the party.

For example, if you know the host, you can offer to help serve drinks, take coats, clear used glasses, or open the door as people knock.

Step 8: Make the Small Talk

Related image

Some might neglect small talk as if it’s superficial and think that it’s just mundane chitter-chatter about the weather or sports. But in actual fact, it is actually of paramount importance.

Small talks are about negotiating relationships; sometimes it might even lead to ongoing relationships. To put it simply, small talks are like the appetizer for any relationship. You won’t know where or when your next opportunity will be in life, friendship, romance, and meeting people.

In most cases, relationships start with small talk; somebody had to break the ice and say hello first, no matter how afraid they might be.

You could always start with a question or give a compliment; but whatever you do, say hello and be genuine.

At the end of it all, it’s about figuring out what kind of person you want to spend the next 30 minutes of your evening with. The aim is to find one or two people with whom you have commonalities, then you can go deeper with more personal questions.

Step 9: Introversion VS Social Anxiety

Image result for introvert at party
Image retrieved from https://www.theodysseyonline.com/survival-guide-introverts-parties

There is a fine line between being an introvert and having social anxiety. Introverts are slightly quieter than the general population and feel that lots of energy is required to keep a conversation going at a party. In contrary, social anxiety is a learned behavior often stemming from a traumatic incident.

Before partying, ask yourself if you might have those feelings in this situation; and also think about how you can prepare for that,

Just because you tend toward introversion, doesn’t mean you can’t be good at parties; it’s all about managing your energy. You can go and rock a party, but having strategies to recharge is vital.

A simple solution could be hiding in the bathroom when necessary or finding an extroverted friend to help you out.

Step 10: Put Down Your Mobile Phone

Mobile phones complicate everything; on one hand, it is great that you do not have to stand in one place and look lost. However, the downside is that it can give off the impression that you are very unapproachable.

Your mobile phone isn’t just distracting, but also limiting your capacity to empathize.

Think about it; you’re not making eye contact or noticing how people in the room are feeling. In addition, you’re probably missing out on some really good conversations by staring at your screen; which you can do anytime you want when you get home.

Step 11: Use the Information At Hand

Your best bet when conversing with someone new at a party, is to base what you say on the “free information” you have at hand about the occasion or location.

You can ask questions like “how do you know the host or hostess?”

Don’t Be That Person

Being a party guest is easy, but being a great party guest takes a lot of effort and work.

Step 12: Make Good Conversation

Image retrieved from https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/4994777/christmas-party-conversation-fun-tips/

3 Tiers of Good Conversation Topics:

Tier 1: Safe Territory – think sports, the weather, pop culture, local celebrities, and any immediate shared experience; this is the “free information” that we have mentioned in the previous step.

Tier 2: Potentially Controversial  -  these include religion, politics, dating and love lives. Test the waters, and back away if they’re not interested or you sense that the other person is feeling uncomfortable.

Tier 3: Intimate Topics – these consist of family and finance, buckets into which health and work-life are included. Some people love to talk about what they do and their kids, but do not ask a probing question until the door has been opened. Those sorts of questions can also become exclusionary, so think about everyone involved in the conversation before you start. 

Knowing the 3 tiers can save you from making the most embarrassing faux pas. In any situation, do not ask a question that could put somebody in a bad position; such as “Is your boyfriend here?” Instead, try “catch me up on your life!”

Step 13: Be More Interested To Be More Interesting

Unless you’re a professional comedian, don’t head to a party with the intent of leaving everyone in stitches.

If you talk a lot, you might tire yourself. However, if you ask questions, listen, and draw people out, they’ll think you’re a great conversationalist.

In a recent study where two researchers from the psychology department at Harvard University found that talking about yourself triggers the same pleasure sensation in the brain as food. People would literally forgo money, just to talk about themselves; use this to your advantage simply by listening.

Step 14: Do Not Be A Conversation Hog

Image result for be better at networking events
Image retrieved from https://amagazine.co.uk/manchester/a-magazines-30-under-30-networking-event

We’ve all been involved in those irritating conversations where we never seem to be able to get a word in edgewise. Unfortunately, we may have been on the other side too.

No matter the situation, it is imperative to share the conversation pie. Share half if there are two of you, a quarter if there are four. The share of the pie is never as large as what involves you listening.

Working the Room

Mingling is an art itself, but remember what you’re here for; to have fun and meet new people.

Step 15: Entering and Exiting Conversations

Image result for be better at networking events
Image retrieved from https://gojobbox.com/how-to-get-better-at-networking-fast/

Picture yourself being trapped in a conversation with a monologuer, and you’re racking your brain trying to escape.

What you can do is to excuse yourself, such as pretending that you just spotted your friend. Another way is to acknowledge what you’ve heard, then give them a warning that the conversation is almost over. For example, “That sounds like you really have a passion for skating! I’m sorry, but I’ve only got a couple more minutes until I need to leave.”

If the speaker continues to dominate, deliver on what you said; such people are only interested in talking but not building relationships. Appreciate their time, thank them, then excuse yourself to leave.

When seeking new conversational partners, it’s more difficult to go into a closed group than it is to address a solo person; take note of their body language.

If they’re standing in a circle with their feet pointed to each other, they’ve blocked off interaction with anyone else. But if you see there’s a bit of space for others to come in, where you can physically fit yourself in, that means the group is interested in having others come up. Listen in, find an open spot, and make your move. If you meet two or three people hanging out, ask how they met; ask questions that encourage storytelling

Step 16: Don't Double Down if You are Not Getting What You Want

Image result for be better at networking events
Image retrieved from https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/636063147343257550/?autologin=true

One huge conversational mistake is not picking up clues about how other people are reacting to you. However, do keep in mind that everyone has different conversational styles.

You should always be attuned to the signals others are sending. According to research, some cultures have a high-involvement style, which means standing closer, offering more gestures and broad facial expressions; whilst others have a high-considerate style, which means fewer broad gestures and facial expressions. If you’re experiencing a disconnect, it may simply be that you have different styles.

If you find yourself doing all the talking, try stopping and asking a question. If you find yourself not having a chance to talk, try talking over the other person or find a spot and chime in.

Be aware, for most people, if something is not going well, our instinctive response is to do more of it. Don’t.

Step 17: When Awkward Silences Happen

Image result for awkward silence at party
Image retrieved from https://inspireyourfaceblog.wordpress.com/tag/party-activities/

One way to avoid awkward silences is to assume the burden of the conversation. You can try coming up with new things to talk about and taking the conversation in another direction.

It’s not only about questions; if the other party isn't interested in the topic, then the conversation will go nowhere.

Do bear in mind that pauses are natural; if you wait it out, the other person might revive the conversation. You can also circle back to an earlier topic, on your part.

But if you’ve reached the end, then exit the conversation in a polite way.

Step 18: What To Do With Your Body

Image result for eye contact with people at parties
Image retrieved from http://www.procommltd.com/eye-contact-building-the-emotional-connection/

1. Make eye contact - Hold your eye contact for a split second longer than you want; try practicing it with everyone you meet. It may feel extremely uncomfortable, but it will deepen the relationship you already have.

2. Keep up your posture - Practice good posture; stand with your shoulders up and back to project confidence and self-assurance. These qualities make you appear magnetic to others and can boost your self-confidence.

3. Open your body – Avoid crossing your arms, because this makes you look closed-off and unapproachable. Remind yourself to try keeping your arms to your sides. Additionally, you can try keeping a glass in your hand, with or without alcohol in it; this helps to prevent you from crossing your arms.

4.  Keep A Smile - Not only does it make you look more approachable, but smiling also makes you feel less stressed and tensed up. The biggest challenge is to walk into a room, get a drink, stand there and smile. However, looking cool and bored only makes you feel more alienated; no one would want to approach you. There is no person in the world that wouldn’t respond to a smile.

The Exit

Now that you are the hit of the party and you’ve charmed your way into the hearts of all, it’s time to stick the landing.

Step 19: Read The Room

Image result for leaving a networking event
Image retrieved from https://www.thebalancecareers.com/what-to-include-on-a-business-card-for-job-seekers-2062582

Is vanishing without a word ever acceptable? The answer is no.

While you don’t want to make a big interruption, you should acknowledge the departure and thank your host. There are, of course, always exceptions and you could follow up after the party to thank the host if the “in-person” goodbye simply can’t happen. 

Don’t just thank your host before leaving, go up to the other people that you have spoken to throughout the evening, and tell them that it was great to meet them. Exchange business cards and go back around; it’ll make them feel special.

If there are people you weren’t able to talk to, you can leave a good impression by telling them something like, “I have to run, I hope to see you soon.”

That way, they won’t think that you are avoiding them.

Step 20: What if You Mess Up Terribly?

Image result for apologizing at party
Image retrieved from https://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-1031113610-upset-woman-ignoring-apologizing-boyfriend-holiday-party

Say you forget a name, or introduce yourself anew to someone you’ve already met, or spill your drink all over your host’s white carpeting; admit the predicament, apologize with sincerity and move on.

It doesn’t have to be very intimidating; there’s the fear of the small mistake ruining everything, but it’s unlikely.

Anyway, isn’t life hard enough already? There are opportunities for kindness and engagement, and you should take advantage of those. If you’re rejected under those terms, keep in mind that it’s through no fault of your own.

Step 21: Know That There Will Be Others

Image result for leave the party
Image retrieved from http://justnewsly.com/cannes-personal-invitation-hina-khan-had-met-priyanka-for-the-party-did-not-even-leave-for-a-minute/

Last but not least; when you leave, leave the party behind for good. Don’t sweat the inevitable after-party F.O.M.O. (Fear Of Missing Out).

Even if you get the call saying something along the lines of , “I can’t believe you left because, after that, someone important showed up.”

Do not be tempted to go back.

Look, it’s just one party. There’s always going to be another one around the corner. For now, reward yourself with a bath and the simple satisfaction that you survived the party; and maybe you even had fun too?

21 Steps To Throwing A Flawless Launch Party

Image result for launch party
Image retrieved from http://www.77creative.com/portfolio/icon-fitness-launch-party/

In simple terms, a launch party is an event used to help introduce something into the market; be it a new brand, product, location or service.

A launch party should be an extension of the core values of your brand; it should reflect your desires and beliefs as a company while showcasing something comprehensively new.

It typically involves inviting stakeholders in your business, key industry influencers or prospects to an event hinged on introducing them to your new brand, product, location, or service; while also entertaining them and making the experience a memorable one.

When pulled off effectively, launch parties can generate a significant amount of buzz for any brand. They can garner goodwill, leave a huge impact on prospective customers, and be a lot of fun for potential clients.

However, this is only applicable if they are planned and executed impeccably.

Hence, our team is here to help you plan for and throw the best launch party ever in history! Here are 21 steps to take when throwing a launch party.

Step 1:  Know your event objective

Image result for event objectives examples
Image retrieved from https://www.eventmanagerblog.com/event-marketing

Often overlooked yet an integral part of the planning process; setting your event objective or outcome is a crucial first step when planning for a launch party. This is because your event objective sets the road for you to identify the success criteria at the end of your launch party.

For example, your event objective may be an increase in sales by 25% by the end of the event; or establish an ongoing relationship with five new media outlets who write editorials about your events.

Step 2: Choose a theme

Image result for choosing a party theme
Image retrieved from https://nearsay.com/c/502425/468699/3-tips-from-an-event-coordinator-for-choosing-a-party-theme

After setting your event objective, you can now move on to coming up with a theme for your launch party. Try thinking of a theme that is beyond your brand, then use that theme to tie the whole event together.

Step 3: Prepare a launch party checklist

Image result for event objectives
Image retrieved from https://www.c-h-w.com/your-event-planning-checklist/

After deciding on the theme, the first thing you need to do is come up with a checklist for the launch party.

The checklist should consist of all the important steps that need to be completed before the event. It is not inclusive, so do remember to include all key stakeholders to the launch in your planning meetings to get a better sense of other actions that may be needed.

Step 4: Establish a budget

Image result for setting a budget
Image retrieved from https://www.freshfinancials.com/how-to-create-small-business-budget/

Deciding on the budget should be one of your top priorities when planning for your launch party. This is because you need to know exactly how much you have to spend so that you can plan what your launch party can and cannot include. Thus, stopping you from overspending.

Step 5: Implement an event app

An event app is a tremendous way to help plan and implement your launch party; even in the early stages as you plan amongst your staff and teams.

Step 6: Choose a unique event venue

A venue can make or break your event. Given the wide range of party venues in Singapore, it can be an arduous task trying to choose the ideal event venue in Singapore.

When choosing a location, consider using a unique event venue that represents what your brand is.

Do also ensure that the event venue is easily accessible for your guests.

Using a unique event venue will also make your event more exclusive, thus increasing its value.

Step 7: Know your audience and invest in relationships

Knowing about the needs wants, and buying behaviors of your guests is what sets apart successful event planning businesses from those that fail.

While it is nice to invite friends and family for moral support, it is equally important to think long term about who you want to work with; and subsequently, invite them to your launch party.

This would enable you to build a strong relationship with the right type of client.

Step 8: Create your launch party invite

Image retrieved from https://www.insideweddings.com/inspiration/photo/62427/wedding-invitations/attendant-handing-out-programs/

Create a custom-designed launch party invites that sets the mood for your event.

The invitation should include; the date and time of your event, what the event is about, and most importantly; a map and contact information to guide your guests to the venue.

Step 9: Make your event exclusive

Related image
Image retrieved from https://www.youth.sg/Our-Voice/Opinions/2018/2/Things-you-need-to-know-before-your-first-night-of-partying

Indicate on your invitations that guests must arrive with their invite in hand, and the security will check for their name on the guest list.

By making your event exclusive, your attendance rates will skyrocket because people will become more curious about what you have planned.

Step 10: Plan the Menu

Be creative; think outside the catering box. Perhaps food trucks, food cooked on-site, or a build-your-own option.

Think beyond the plated and served dinner and instead focus on what may be enjoyed by all.

Step 11: Plan the Bar service

If you will be having bar service at your launch party, come up with a signature cocktail that’s fun, imaginative, and associated with your brand. This would leave a lasting impression on your guests and they’ll think of your brand with every sip they take.

Step 12: Book Entertainment

Do ensure to hire knowledgeable staff with launch party experience to help manage and ensure that your launch party goes smoothly.

This is so that you can focus on entertaining your guests and drumming up the business.

Hence, when hiring the right team of event staff, you should ensure that they reflect your brand and meet your event needs and company values.

Step 14: Feature Giveaways

A surefire way to keep your guests lingering at your launch party is to plan some giveaways.

Forget the kitschy, cheap giveaways and give your event guests something dandy, memorable and useful instead. This is an excellent opportunity for you to show your creativity and leave an indelible impression on your guests.

In other words, don’t bother wasting money on inexpensive pens, tote bags or t-shirts. Instead, opt for something like a small care package, branded wine bottles or even branded skincare products.

Step 15: Invite the press

In order to increase brand awareness, invite the media to your launch party by sending a one-page media advisory that includes the “who, where, what, and why” of your event.

Examples include bloggers and influencers that could help increase your brand reach.

Step 16: Shuttle Services

While not necessary, it would be better to offer your guests free rides, ride discounts, or shuttle services.

Step 17: Create an in-depth schedule of activities

Image result for schedule

Make a detailed plan for the event activities and document it.

The schedule of activities will keep the event running smoothly and all staff in the know of what to expect.

The emcee, DJ, event staff, and everyone involved; should know what the schedule for the event is.  That way, everyone would be working in concert to ensure that the event runs as smoothly as possible.

Step 18: Have a contingency plan

Something will go wrong with your launch party, this is for sure. It could be the food, the venue, or anything else.

Hence, it is imperative to ensure that there always is a backup plan for countering any unplanned situations. This isn’t always feasible; eg. Having a backup venue, but always be prepared for as many eventualities as possible.

Step 19: Communication Channels

If something major does go wrong and there’s no other available solution to fix it, then you should own up to it, be honest, and let people know.

You’re almost always better off just letting people know that there were some complications and that you’re working to fix it.

This is where communication channels come in handy; such as an event app; it allows you to disseminate information to everyone at your launch party. Therefore, alleviating the inconveniences of the situation at hand.

Step 20: Arrange for a clean-up crew

When the launch party is over and everyone has had a good time, there will definitely be some mess to clean up; you most definitely wouldn’t want to do it alone because it can be a pretty daunting task.

Instead, hire a clean-up crew to help lessen the load and speed up the process.

Step 21: After Party

Your event team is your greatest resource; including your vendors. Thus, it is important to celebrate and acknowledge their hard work and efforts.

If it is in your event budget, throw them an after-party as a way to show your gratitude and appreciation.

If it is not in the budget, then you should publicly thank them during your launch party and/or set up a brag board to showcase all their unique talents.

There you have it! Now that you are armed with the tools and resources needed to get started on planning your launch party, it is time to put these steps into action!

One issue that most event planners face is about where the party venue should be. In this case, we recommend Hyperspace! This is because Hyperspace is a brand new event venue in Singapore for rent with 3 spaces that can be rented. Hence, making it the perfect location for hosting a launch party, giving it a fresh new vibe and ambiance.

Image retrieved from https://elizabethmary8.wordpress.com/2013/11/24/the-coming-of-age-21st-birthday-party-ideas/

We have already discussed the Top 10 21st Birthday Ideas, and now you have the perfect idea in mind for what to do. Now your next thought might probably be “what do I wear?"

Picking the best outfit for your birthday can feel like a daunting, impossible task; you want a mix of “looking like a queen yet not looking like you are trying too hard”. What you wear is also dependent on the type of birthday celebration that you are going to have.

Unsure about what to wear on your big night? Carry on reading below for fashion tips and outfit ideas for your 21st birthday!

Key Pieces:

Before we get to the outfit picks, here are a few must-have pieces for a 21st birthday look:

a. Crossbody, wristlet/clutch with wrist strap

For a fun night out, you do not want to be burdened by a heavy bag. Your best option is to go for a wristlet or clutch that attaches to you so that you will not lose your important valuables.

b. Flashy Heels

It is your 21st birthday so why not make a statement with your footwear? Something sparkly, bright or bold is a must-have for your 21st!

c. Flamboyant Dress

Your 21st birthday gives you the perfect opportunity and excuse to splurge on an absolutely ridiculous party dress! So go for something that you love and can dance in easily! After all, 21st birthday dresses are meant to be fun!

d. 21st Birthday Tiara/Sash/Light-up shot glass

These are optional but they will make your whole outfit ensemble look fun! Aside from a bachelorette party, a 21st birthday is the only time that you will have a built-in excuse to look utterly preposterous. It’s your birthday, so live it up!

e. Lipgloss

You’ll want to freshen up as the night goes on; glossy lips are always an extra bonus.

1) Casual

Image result for yellow sundress
Image retrieved from https://www.pinterest.com/pin/495747871458257856/?lp=true

A sunny yellow dress would definitely be a good way to get yourself noticed wherever you go! Pair the dress with a bright headband and simple yellow sandals! Finally, complete the look with gold rings to add a little “bling” to your outfit!

2) Cocktail

Image result for black cocktail dress ideas
Image retrieved from https://www.clbxg.com/black-cocktail-dresses-canada/

You would want to wear a dress made of refined fabric such as taffeta, silk or lace. It should be much more formal than a sundress, but less formal than a ballgown.

If you’re going to wear a 2-piece, then opt for a snazzy sequinned top made of silk, and pair it with velvet dress pants or a skirt.

For shoes; pumps would be the way to go!

Just remember; when in doubt, wear black,

3) Formal Evening Wear

Image result for red slip dress

You can never go wrong with a slip dress; its bright, shiny fabric will no doubt make you shine on your special day too! For an on-trend look, add a few pearl-embellished hair clips. Complete the look with nude heels and a few gold bracelets; you can never go wrong with some “bling” in your jewelry.

There’s now no question that you’ll capture everyone’s attention when on the dance floor!

4) Tea Party

Image result for tea party outfit
Image retrieved from https://www.pinterest.com/pin/100134791687498327/?lp=true

Tea parties are the perfect excuse for you to wear your Sunday best. Patterns like florals are popular but stay away from all-black looks.

Tea-length dresses that fall midway between the knee and the ankle would be ideal, but just above or below the knee is also an acceptable look. Do note to avoid extremely short dresses because a tea party is not the most appropriate occasion for a miniskirt.

Complete your look with a big floppy floral hat, white gloves, and some pearl earrings or necklace!

Not forgetting dressy sandals or closed-toe shoes; they would be perfect choices for pairing and coordinating with tea-length dresses.

5) Disco Party

Image result for rose gold jumpsuit

Since this is a disco party and you know that you’ll be dancing the night away, why not make life easier for yourself and opt for pants instead?

If you’re looking for something that will make you stand out from the crowd, then try wearing a flamboyant rose gold jumpsuit!

Not only does it have pants so that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort, but the unique flair at the bottom of the pants would enhance your every step while you sway on the dance floor; a definite show stopper.

Pair this outfit with some matching, chunky heels and it’ll give you some more height. Lastly, complete the look with some layered gold necklaces to give it a “wow” factor.

6) Neon Party

Image result for neon skater dress

You would want to go for something that is made of white fluorescent fabric so that it’ll glow under black lights. Fluorescent pink, green, yellow and orange are the safest bets; just take note that the more color you add to your outfit, the better!

A fluorescent skater dress would be a fun choice; because the skirt will flare up when you twirl on the dance floor!

Do pair the dress with some white sneakers and remember to make use of glowsticks; they can be altered in whichever way to form fun accessories that glow!

Lastly, complete your neon look with some glow-in-the-dark body paint and makeup! If you do not have them, then you can opt for fluorescent highlighters; they glow under black lights too!

Ultimately, an outfit can create the mood for the entire day or night, so make sure to wear something that you feel comfortable and beautiful in. Whether you’re planning to do something laid back or something out of this world, you will surely look your best with the 21st birthday outfits listed above!
