What: Bridging 2018 Sessions
When: March 2018
Where: Function Room
My RBKD bridging experience could be referred to as a cosy one – there were only 4 of us in that particular session. I thought it was going to be boring. Thankfully, I was wrong. We had more opportunities to interact and understand each other better. That is something that could have been compromised to some extent if the session were to have more participants.
Attending such an activity brought me a step closer to understanding the role of a fanclub. It is not simply a platform to mindlessly cheer for our idol, but also a space where new people gather and forge friendships. It is also the tireless commitment of active members that keeps the club (and Rui En, of course) going (for 10 years already gosh).
You could say that the bridging experience is a first stepping stone to better understanding your roles as a fan of Rui En and a member of RBKD. I am glad I took that first step out that day.
What: Chinese New Year Charity
When: 28 January 2018
Where: Kampong Kapor, Whampoa
We gathered early in the morning to pack the goodie bags. Then we made several trips to different households in need to distribute the goodie bags throughout the day. We chat with a few while helping them put up new year decorations on their door. A elderly even invited us in and we chat with her in the house. Seeing the smiles of beneficiaries made all the work worthwhile. A heartwarming charity experience with the RBKD team!
Glad to have the chance to participate in this yearly ‘CNY tradition’ of sharing and spreading bday love
Briefing and packing of the goodie bags were done at the spacious centre and the most memorable part actually went to taking the countless boomerang and group pics using the vegetables, goodies etc
I thought the self collection arrangement this year was brilliant and efficient to benefit more families. We were also able to complete our home delivery to the nearby families timely before getting a short lunch break, and continued with the afternoon location.
This year’s Chun Lian was also super cute with the hand drawn designs of members’ doggies!

What: RBKD Chalet 2017
When: 28-30 July 2017
Where: Aloha Changi
It has been a year since I joined a RBKD event so meeting up with the members will always be something to look forward to, especially it is a chalet this round. I love it that the location was so serene, quiet and peaceful, with beach by the side, environment with this peacefulness is a good break for me I must say.
I miss the time when all of us sit down together and talk, catching up with each other and most importantly, it was the first time we watched a final episode of Rui En’s series together. There is nothing better than watching it together with fellow fans
It’s been a long time since we last had a chalet, I think that was in 2013, during our weareone5. We used to have chalet almost every year before then but stopped after our favourite chalet was torn down.
So we wanted to do this again, and decided to tie in with the finale of “Have A Little Faith” because that just sounds like a good idea.
We had a steamboat feast while watching her show and a BBQ on the next day. Chanced upon the flag-bearing helicopters heading to NDP preview before we started our bbq. Nice.
After sweating it out from cycling at Pulau Ubin, having a round of chillax-ing while enjoying our ice cream was especially sweet. But I think the most fun activity must have been when everyone tried winning in a game of dai-dee so that they could avoid eating the leftover food as penalty. It’s really amusing seeing how hard everyone tries to not lose in this, as everyone’s really too full as the night goes.
What’s a chalet without late night chats after shower, or girl-to-girl talk in the room. What did we talk about? Who remembers and who cares, it’s the warm fuzzy feeling that remains
What: Bridging 2017 Sessions
When: June 2017
Where: Function Room
Xinyi, Club President:
We decided to scrap Orientation this year to focus on Bridging which consists of a smaller and more intimate group size, allowing us more opportunities to know the fans who are keen to join us.
This was also our new format for Bridging, where we introduced indoor activities instead of the previously outdoor ones. We mix around depending on the suitability of venue available.
Had 3 sessions in total over 2 weekends and the organizers were all brain dead after the sessions. But it was fun while it last as we got to know each other better and The RBKD Sit-down Foosball was obviously a crowd favourite. No less sweat even in an air-conditioned room.
For the committee, it was good to meet so many new people, after receiving hundreds of entries indicating interest to join us, we were glad that we got to meet some of them in person.
Bridging will always be evolving according to RBKD’s needs but the spirit to understand, interact and bond will remain.

"为什么瑞恩在星光大道走来走去?" 🤔 今年的星光大道有别以往，有绚丽的室内走道和气派的户外'红'地毯。 . 很幸运的，#RBKD 不管是室内、还是室外，都有机会为 #RuiEn 打气。因室内回音重，所以我们的大分贝呐喊吓到了Aden小朋友，还真过意不去。😅 . 大会也为我们准备了比颁奖礼门票还多出3倍的星光大道门票，让更多粉丝能一起支持#RuiEn。**尖叫声!!** 只是需要分成3组，不能在一起。。。😭😭😭😭😭 . 但是，只要同心，#ONERBKD will still be #ONERBKD. . #RuiEn 和我们的“红色气球组” 打完招呼后，因为角度问题，找不到我们的“粉红气球组”，所以差点儿走出红地毯去寻找我们了。😅 . 看到这个画面还真有些不好意思，但知道发生什么事的我们其实是觉得既好笑又好有爱哦。😂😂😂😘😘😘 . 结果你们就看到#RuiEn 走来走去的画面，也因此而错过了让大家在电视上看到#RuiEn 捧过我们那束99朵玫瑰花的画面。还好我们自己有拍照。😄 . 故事有点长，但是最美的时光记录一下，以后可以回味。谢谢大家阅读啦。 . (图为在星光大道上兵分三路的我们，典礼上一字排开的我们以及#Ruivin #RBKD @elvinology 和乐融融一同排队的我们) . #sa2017sg #rbkd99rosesand1crown @ch8sg

What: 2016-17 Countdown
When: 31 December 2016
Where: Labrador Park
Bi Hui, participant:
What can my end / beginning of the year be like when there is no event to attend? That was probably my thought as I was too used to going to Rui En’s countdown event, and celebrating it with RBKD members for the past few years. Then came a message asking me, whether if I’m available to countdown with the rest at a park…
Fast forward to the day of countdown, the festive mood was there, and I am glad, I’m celebrating the New Year with RBKD members! It was a little special since it was my first time celebrating at a park, and going to a park around 10pm till 12am. I wouldn’t have done that in my life if it was just me hahahaha!
What really amazed me was how many people gathered at the same place to celebrate the new year, and the best was when we could see fireworks from 2 places…for free! As we started to settle down after taking pictures of the fireworks, suddenly, we heard an unfamiliar sound, and soon after we saw something that was shot to the sky (we could just see the smoke), then a few seconds later, a few red balls.
“What is that red thing in the sky?”….
B:”hmmm…I think it’s kites with lights on them”
C:”Wait…I think I saw some smoke trails…”
B:”OMG IT SEEMED LIKE IT’S COMING CLOSER TO US!!”
*after a long break and staring at the red balls”
A:”I think that is the SOS signal from the boats. Probably shot just for the New Year.”
B, C and the rest “Ohhhh….”
That was my first time seeing the SOS signal.
This was our first countdown in 10 years without Rui En or RBKD. So we decided to hang out together, for a quiet session, after so many loud ones all these years. Yea, where in Singapore can we find a quiet place for countdown? That’s what Rui En said too.
Nonetheless, we went to Labrador park as we thought it would be quieter and there’s still fireworks at midnight. True enough, the crowd present obviously thought the same as us. So the usual story goes for any “quiet countdown”.
The interesting thing was when we saw red lights rising steadily towards the skies, from where the yachts are berthed. “Is that a drone?” “What’s up? Why is the drone only going up?”
Took us a good few minutes before we realised they were red flares, shot from the emergency distress gun of a yacht owner, amidst all the honking at 12 midnight. Guess, we learnt something?
Ended with a quick supper at McDonald’s after a long walk in almost total darkness along the 1km boardwalk towards the MRT. Everything was so simple and quiet, it was just peaceful and perhaps, a little memorable too.
