It is good to see that men and women are a lot more in equal footing nowadays. This was not always the case since women were once considered second hand citizens. In some countries though, women are still treated this way until now. The same goes with homosexuals who are still looked down upon and are considered as social outcasts. That is why there are still those who are afraid to come out of the closet. They are afraid to be ridiculed and would rather conform with the common practice in society. They are “caged” and are afraid to break free.

Tiger Beer presents Tiger #uncage, its new campaign rallying people to break free from what is conventional and live the life they want. Uncage is all about looking at things differently with an open mind and following your instincts instead of the dictates of others. In the run up to National Day, Tiger Beer teamed up with Singapore’s Tree Potatoes, a popular Youtube channel featuring Aaron Khoo, Elliot Tan, and Janice Chiang. It has become one of the top three Youtube channels in Singapore inspite of starting just half a year ago. Being uncaged to them means stepping out of your comfort zone to pursue what you want in life.

In celebration of Tiger Beer National Day, Tree Potatoes came up with a video to showcase their love for Singapore and unleash local pride. Along with the hashtag #YouKnowYoureSingaporeanWhen, it documents the daily habits of Singaporeans such as their love for eating hawker food everyday, being able to speak three languages in one sentence, believing in their hearts that Singapore is always a safe place to live in, calling people by their rank even outside the office, everyone wears glasses, and complaining about the weather but getting defensive when foreigners complain about Singapore, among other things.

Uncaging the tiger within us is what Tiger Beer wants us to do. This world famous and award winning Singaporean beer brand is available in over 75 countries worldwide including Asia, Europe, USA, Latin America, Australia and the Middle East. Help spread the word by watching and sharing the video on Facebook and Twitter using #uncage. You can also share your thoughts about the video and unleash your pride about Singapore.

Penang Hill

Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera in Malay) is located on the island of Penang, within the area called Air Itam. It is about 6 km (3.7 miles) from Georgetown (Penang city). Despite the first impression one might have of Georgetown as a busy place, it is a town of leisure beneath is façade. People who live here enjoy their city and island. They frequent the parks and garden, take trips around the island and visit the many temples. Penang Hill is one of their favorite spots. As far back as 1897, people were struck by the scenic beauty and “the desirability of Penang Hill as a health resort”.

There was only one problem: getting there. Someone finally came up with the idea of building a railway to the summit. After years of labor, the line was completed. Two passenger cars mounted on tracks were attached to a thick cable, which passed through pulleys. Steam power was ruled out in favour of a Pelton wheel, propelled by water power. “An ingenious method” was the remark at the time. Everyone waited the day when the rail cars would start rolling. Unfortunately, when the day finally arrives, the water wheels failed to even spin. But, no worry, it is working well nowadays as government even made a renovation and renewed the trains. The total journey to the top of the hill takes around twenty minutes and the train may stop at other intermediate station upon request. For those that love relaxing vacation, you may book a hotel on the hill and stay for two or three days, enjoy a night view on top of the hill. It will be an excellent vacation you ever have!

Brazil was always a great tourist destination. But it is expected that there will be a lot more travel agencies to organize traveling to Brazil in 2014. Main reason for this is the World Cup of course. But, besides it, there are plenty of nice things to visit in Brazil! Here is a list of some of them:

1. Ouro Preto is one of Brazil’s best-preserved colonial towns. It means “black gold” and it was founded at the end of the 17th century. It quickly became the epicenter of a new gold rush in the state of Minas Gerais.

2. The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland, lying mostly in Western Brazil but extending into Bolivia and Paraguay as well. Famous for its wildlife, it is one of Brazil’s major tourist attractions. Unlike the Amazon rainforest, in the Pantanal you are virtually guaranteed to actually see the wildlife.

3. The Rio Carnival attracts two million people per day on the streets and almost half a million foreigners during its 4 day celebration. The Carnival is all over the place, in the streets and squares, bars, clubs and all other venues in Rio, concluding in the spectacular Rio Samba Parade at the Sambadrome.

4. Christ the Redeemer is the famous statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro. Located at the peak of the 700 meters (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain, it provides a sweeping panorama from the interior of Guanabara bay to the north, to Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas to the south.
