Focuses On The Perfect Cupcake
Focuses on "Social Defense"

It was a great interesting exposure at the Top 40 Pitching at Nanyang Polytechnic;I had the chance to catch a glimpse on how the Pitching was conducted.

This group was one of the three that I managed to take a peek at. Their basis on social defense shows a great importance of the different cultures and identity of people. Equality among races and religions are the utmost priority and the cakes is depicts perfectly that Singapore is the Perfect Cupcake: A cupcake that consists a perfectly mixed mixture of different kinds of ingredients.

Even though they did not make it to the Top 20, I believe that they will succeed in their future endeavors.

Focuses on All Five Aspects of Total Defense

Their RAP was indeed amazing and they deserved to be one of the Top 20 Teams of N.E.mation! 10 this year.

Certain aspects that they have to improve on that was highlighted during the pitch was that the rap was a little off their desired focus. It sounded more towards "Military Defense" instead of "Total Defense". 

Moreover, the judges asked intuitive questions such as "If you were given more time, how will you work on the story?"

Their replies were that they will improve on the message that they were trying to deliver via the rap. They also mentioned that they would further develop their story line and make it more relatable to people.

Honestly speaking, their "RAP" was superbly interesting and unique. To me I personally feel that they're quite a strong team due to their unique choice of delivery. I believe that they might be able to compete among the Top 10 Finalist if they were to improve on certain loop holes that were mentioned by the judges

I'm A Personal Poem Fanatic
They Did A Great One!

Their focus was to provide advises for the viewers and to help change the negative traits of people for the better. They were trying to introduce the eye in a better perspective in the sense that every single part of the eye plays an important role and it signifies something of Singapore too.

However, it was recommended by the judges that they should not focus on the "EyeLid" even though they meant it in a good way as it sounds exactly like "I-Lead" so that it encourages leadership. 

I'm glad that they managed to got into the Top 20 Teams too. For the other teams pitching for the Top 10 Finalist, I wish you all the best and hope that your hard work over the weeks will be paid off. Even if you didn't enter the Top 10 Finalist or you aren't the winner of the N.E.mation! 10, I believe that it's the experience and the knowledge that you gain that matters the most.
