My name is …. and I am ….

My name is Jolie. I am a student at Clementi Town Secondary School, just taken my N and O levels and currently also working as a part time retail assistant.

Me and RBKD:

I only knew of RBKD after watching By My Side which is also my favourite mediacorp drama to date. I used to look down on people who were in fanclubs as I find them a waste of time and I really did not expect myself to join one. So I always believe karma is true. The unexpected is always those that comes true.

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was……

a) The pyjamas night during the Annual Summer Chalet in 2009. Even in daily life, I never had the habit to even wear pyjamas when I sleep so when president wanted to have this, my mind was only thinking, “Where the hell do I get pyjamas?” I went on a crazy search for it and I could never forget it.

b) Countdown to RBKD’s second birthday. I will never forget how much whipped cream was prepared for us. It’s never a good thing when you see the committee members gathering together and smiling slyly.

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

RBKD is not just a simple fanclub who chase after Rui En only but also volunteers their time and celebrate by themselves for no special reason.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

The Kite flying IPC! I have always love kite flying but my friends are forever not going with me and when someone wanted to organise it, I was so excited for it! The IPC was considered a meetup for old members and also for us to get to know each other. It might have been awkward but I bet everyone enjoyed themselves!

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..

Everyone’s all hyped up and ready for star awards! During this period of time actually most of us were having common test, exams and yet in the bus, some of us managed to study and play. Who says that being in a fanclub is a waste of time? We study too! We always put our exams at priority!

5) I hope to go for an IPC in future that is ……

Actually I would like a IPC that just requires people to sit down and talk, play, eat and do whatever they want as long as they do it together. A group of people who are really awkward in the beginning ending up being the closest of friends ever.

6) Words/pic to share with RBKD :

“只要不放弃,就会有奇迹!”
This sentence might be old but it always help me when I’m very stress.

We have no control over how long we have in the world, but we always have the choice on how to spend the whatever time we have.

My name is Jean; currently studying in Temasek Polytechnic.

Me and RBKD:

Joined RBKD in 2008 and I guess that was how everything started :)

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was …….

Board-making sessions.

Weekends can be burnt just for board-making but the end result just seems so fulfilling with a sense of achievement though time-consuming.

I guess I can never forget the process of the blue & green boards when I had to draw a letter “R” out which was sort of disastrous since it was my first time doing it and the markings were so messed up till the extent of even I myself could not tell which point to meet which point. Haha! (Above photo as prove).

What I learnt about board-making in RBKD? Precision and mathematical skills are an “essential”. Hahaha!

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

-With perseverance and diligence, nothing is impossible.

-One can’t always be on the receiving end.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

Pulau Ubin Hike & Bike

Cycling in Pulau Ubin = More “kick” = More than the usual muscle aches you get from cycling in Singapore.

First time to Pulau Ubin and it was with RBKD. It was just filled with so much laughter even though at the end of the day, those who cycled, suffered from serious muscle ache. Haha!

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..

Self-thought caption: “HAHAHAHAHA!”

Everyone just seems happy:)

5) I hope to go for an IPC in future that is ……

All about food = Buffet/Food trail around Singapore! :D

P/S: For this, I don’t mind eating after 8PM:) HAHAHA!

My name is Weijen and I am now a student studying in Penang.

Me and RBKD :

Never expected to seriously join a FC…RBKD is the first and i hope it will last for as long as I know.

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was ……

I actually don’t know how to answer this but I hope to let all Rangels know the things you guys have done over the years do really relate to me, though i could not be physically be with you guys. I love to watch videos where you guys are screaming for her, where you guys had fun together, on fc bday or 31st Dec whatever.

I watched the video in this post and seriously, I can’t stop laughing. Although I could not hear clearly what was said but the earthquake and 土产 are hilarious!! because I often misinterpret what my friends said too and it is very embarrassing!

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

To give without expecting return. This is important and I really experience this in RBKD. Sometimes our life is too complicated that we often neglect the simplest things that make us happy. Thank you Rangels for teaching me this.

The committee are brilliant and they are the ones that epitomize the RBKD spirit. It is not easy to maintain a club and fan page. I know this because I am engaged in a student organization in my college too. It is not easy to organize activities, with such perseverance and efficiency. The introduction to volunteering is undoubtedly the cream of the crop.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

Orientation 2011 because 1st step is always important as it reached out to all the new members. To me, 1st time meeting is always special, because people are usually shy on our 1st meeting but as time passes by, when one person is gradually showing his true colours, looking back on the 1st meeting will make me amazed =D

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..


A meaningful and unique birthday gift.

5) I hope to go for an IPC in future that is ……

I love activity that cultivates teamwork and involves some sort of team-building, preferably sports and outdoor.

6) Words/pic to share with RBKD:

Thanks for being part of my life. I never expected to join a FC, never expected to learn so much in a FC, never expected that RBKD is so different from the FC I perceived as before. It is true; you need to become a Rangel to know how united RBKD is, because we are one.

My name is …. and I am ….

My name is Celest and I am currently working.

Me and RBKD:

I chanced upon RBKD in November 2008 but only joined the fanclub in June last year. Though my journey as a member in RBKD is short, I must say I was attached to this club ever since 2008. Being part of this big family has indeed brought joy and ‘colors’ to my life and I will always be grateful for all the moments spent together.

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was …….

i) Seven.Zero.Eight (708) – I stepped out of my comfort zone to meet people whom I don’t know but that actually built a door for everyone to get to know one another. I can never forget we took so long to take our group photos and they were all very well taken. Thanks to our expert photographer.

ii) SA2011 Night 2 at RWS – It was my first time attending the Star Awards event with RBKD and it was the first time I felt that RBKD’s strength, bonding and unity was so overwhelming when we cheered, screamed and shouted. I never thought I could be involved in such craziness/ silliness……. So yup I was in a total disbelief with myself that night. It was a reality and not a dream at all.

iii) First overseas IPC trip to KL – Since it was the first overseas IPC trip organized, I wanted to give my support and also I felt that it was a great opportunity to get to know one another better (which I did), so I decided to embark on this journey. Enduring the long hours of overnight train ride and excursion van ride was the most unforgettable. Nevertheless, we were accompanied by laughters and craziness throughout the entire trip.

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

~ “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”. – Helen Keller

While living, we should give ourselves the chance to explore and experience. Dare to dream and having the courage to work towards achieving it and most importantly, never live a life with regrets.

~ “Love, true love, is that which can give the most without asking or demanding anything in return”. – Unknown

We cannot predict the unexpected or prevent the unexpected from happening, however we can choose to cherish our loved ones and never take them for granted.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

Badmintion IPC at Khatib. Because it was a rare opportunity to play badmintion with so many people and I really enjoyed playing with my fellow Rangels.

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..

This group photo just appears so perfect to me, with so many different poses and so many different facial expressions. And everyone looks great too. To me, it is a wonderful family photo.

5) I hope to go for an IPC in future that is ……

Outdoor/ nature exploring IPC.

Annoyhaseayo!! (Hello in Korean) My name is Joyce and I am currently a student in Temasek Polytechnic! (Come my school to try the western food! ^^) hehe.

Me and RBKD:

I’m in RBKD for more than a year already I guess? I am known as the cutest member inside there. MUHAHA. But now I want to change. Please rename me as the most adorable member because they said Cute is Ugly but Adorable. So here am I, Adorable. Whee~

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was …….

The IPCs outings! Because we get to know each other and now even come to become close friends! Because of IPCs, we get to know lots of places that we had never been before and to try things that we had not done before! The time to meet new faces, the time to interact and introduce ourselves and the time to play with them are therefore the most memorable period! ^^

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

The kind of special bond that this Fanclub has. RBKD has taught me that acquaintances can become your very close friends now that you can trust your whole life with. I’ve also learnt the teamwork RBKD had. As we all know, RBKD has lots of smart people! I was inspired by them to work hard in various aspects of my life.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

The first IPC that I organized I guess? Because it is my first time organizing an IPC! Thus, it’s special. (THE KBOX OUTING) *omgod, I look super toot here.

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..

Because all our unglam faces are captured that! Isn’t that picture cute?! HAHAHA.

Reason being simple: I love this picture because we are doing charity act! Kekekeke.

5) I hope to go for an IPC in future that is ……

To visit factories!! Like the Meiji Factory!! I’ve been waiting for super long hoping to go there! :p

6) Words/pic to share with RBKD:

“When life throws you a curve ball, Keep batting and don’t give up. Learn to hit them right out into the stands and run all the bases for a home run.”

I thought it would be nice if I can convey this to RBKD. When you meet obstacles in life and I am sure there will be. You have to remember, it is these obstacles that made you a stronger person. Therefore, don’t give up easily but rather, keep on going!

From RBKD and because of RBKD, I met Joyce, Rachael and my “twin” and we have Family Tree (FT), thus, I am always thankful for RBKD, because I made friends, good friends and sisters.

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was …….

The RBKD orientation! It was the first time so many members came together for the orientation and we had a lot of fun going around Sentosa.  My group was running around Sentosa and we won the amazing race! smile I made many new friends during the orientation. It was quite fun working together with everybody to figure out the clues and doing the task allocated to us. I hope we would have orientations every year!

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

The endless voting and the overlapping of the voting periods taught me perseverance. Although it was not easy, given that the period of voting was quite long, but made it through. We had to persevere till the end to see the results and our hard work pay off.

3) My favourite IPC is …… because …….

My favourite IPC would be bowling IPC, because it was the first time I organized an IPC with the help of Rachael. It was quite fun although not everybody turned up, but it was still very fun. And RBKD has 2 guys that are very good in bowling. :p

4) This is my favourite photo(s) taken in RBKD because …..

Although it was a small group of us, but it was quite fun.

I got to know of RBKD in 2009 from Rui En’s FB page, and decided to try something new and unexpected – join a fanclub. I started out as being curious, trying new things, but it turns out that I am attracted to this big family and I continued to stay on.

1) Memorable and unforgettable moment(s) in RBKD was …….

Memorable: My 1st ever IPC in 2009 – Cycling at Pasir Ris Park. Why memorable? Because it’s the first activity with RBKD, 1st time meeting the club president and blah blah blah. Yup, you got the idea. :D

Unforgettable: 1st trip to Mediacorp – Unforgettable cause of the long traumatic walk from the bus stop to the station, cause it’s the 1st time attending Stars Award and having cheer, scream and shout to celebrate the rewards of our efforts.

2) I have learnt in RBKD that……..

If you have a vision, no matter how impossible it seems, work hard towards it and you might be able to achieve it.

Soccer IPC! Brings out the Lionel Messy in me.

Full of laughter and joy (without being a nuisance to others)
