Webisode 5: Moments with Lumix and Kitchen Showdown
This week's webisode tested the August Man A-Listers in not just one, but two, challenges.
Moments with Lumix Challenge
First, their photographic eye was put to the test with the Moments with Lumix challenge. Equipped with the latest Panasonic Lumix GF3 camera, the brand's smallest and lightest Digital Interchangeable Lens system camera to date, they were tasked to capture the A-Listers experience from their point of view by taking as many pictures as possible, including a shot of Hotel Fort Canning in its best element.
Each A-Lister had to select five images complete with captions to be presented before a panel of judges. Their photos were judged on creativity, story-telling and picture composition and the winner of this challenge walked away with the Lumix GF3 camera worth $899 and a 60-minute aromatherapy massage at Thann Sanctuary spa located at Hotel Fort Canning worth $150!
This culinary challenge was hotly anticipated by some of the more kitchen-inclined A-Listers, not so much those who were more accustomed to getting take out. Hosted by Chef Lino Sauro of Gattopardo restaurant, the A-Listers were grouped into teams and each had to whip up two pastas, Oxtail Tortelloni and Aglio Olio, and a dessert, champagne sabayon in 40 minutes. Did they emerge a Kitchen Nightmare or a Top Chef? Watch the video to find out! The winning team won a bottle of wine, Dogajolo Rosso, Toscana, 2009, each, sponsored by Gattopardo.
