Dread the reunion dinner this CNY? Stay calm

For some youths, not everything related to Chinese New Year is happy, think of those awkward moments when you are asked about your salary or relationship status.

Heaven and Earth® and Host Singapore have launched a digital campaign around it titled “#CalmComebacks”, to help young Singaporeans survive the many such stressful questions they may encounter.

This Chinese New Year, youths will be able to tap on the witty tips from#CalmComebacks, a Facebook app designed to arm users with smart and instant responses to the tricky questions.

Launched on 19 January on the Heaven and Earth® Facebook page, the campaign kicked off with humorous film content co-created with Singapore YouTube stars – Night Owl Cinematics.

The film shows real-life festive season scenarios and provides practical as well as tongue-in-cheek tips to counter common questions such as “Eh girl, why skirt so short?”, “Why not married yet eh?” and “How come don’t have baby yet?”.

The launch film, supported by paid digital media, drives users to the #CalmComebacks Facebook app at the Heaven and Earth® Facebook page, where all the calming content is housed.
