No, I am NOT kidding. Yes, I am auctioning a Valentine’s Date for charity.
Here’s how it works: Users will place bids on me using tokens (each costing 75c) provided at Sold.sg, an online shopping auction site. The person with the highest bid would win a dinner date with me which will be held at Limoncello Restaurant. The dinner is worth $95.00++ per person. And ALL proceeds will be given to the Spastic Children’s Association of Singapore (SCAS).
The truth is I was initially apprehensive about ‘selling’ myself on an auction site. What if nobody wants to buy me? In the end, I trust that everything would turn out well, and you would want to spend some time with me, and do something for charity right?
I tell you what. I will donate the same final amount bided for to charity as well!
This Food Blogger is probably the only one around who is also a fitness instructor. So you are getting two for the price of one. Or maybe more. He is currently single because he has no time for dates. He divides his time studying his Masters, teaching at a Polytechnic, hosting a radio programme, writing food reviews, instructing others and volunteering. However, he has decided that auctioning his time for The Spastic Children’s Association of Singapore and having a special dinner with a lovely date sounds too good to be true.
Also since it is his birthday week, he thinks it will be nice to have somebody share a slice of cake with him.
