We’re totally addicted to the US tv series Mad Men, and are pretty sure you’ll love it too! The witty office banter, the brooding good looks of John Hamm and of course the fabulous 1960’s costumes (they even make smoking look cool again). This Thursday local channel, FX will be hosting a Mad Men Casting Party at FINDS to find stars for their commercial to publicize the launch of the show on local tv. Dress up as your favourite character, or just in a suitably retro style if you’re not familiar with the show yet, and even if you don’t get picked, you can still get a free drink and the chance to win some great prizes. Should be a lot of fun!
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
