Get on ‘boat’ for an all-in-one relationship makeover
By JADE CHAN
SINGLES Cruise Asia is touted to be a unique platform for singles to mingle and improve themselves and their overall love lives with the help of several gurus.
The themed cruise event brings singles from all over Malaysia on a five-day four-night discovery journey packed with activities like games, dance classes, themed dinners and personal development programmes.
From image consultancy to relationship workshops, to dating tips and etiquette, the cruise is an all-in-one relationship makeover journey that is designed to empower and equip participants with the know-how and mindset to prepare them for relationships, or even to heal from one.
SCASIA Sdn Bhd PR director Timothy Low explained: “It is a vacation-themed personal discovery cruise aimed at providing a platform for the growing singles population to meet ‘real’ people and see what they are like in ‘real’ situations.
Getting to know you: The Singles Workshop, which was held as a preview ahead of Singles Cruise Asia, kicked off with an ice-breaking session.
“It is often difficult to determine what someone is like until you interact with them outside of their normal routine.
“Fun activities are always the best way to get to know someone, make some new friends, or even ignite a romance.”
Low said that the programmes were designed to transform people’s lives and getting participants to put whatever they had learnt into action.
“Our tagline is ‘Becoming the Right Person’ because we believe that has to happen before finding the right person.
Low promised that the cruise participants would get to enjoy something they have never experienced before.
Potential participants were given a preview of the cruise during a workshop where the four gurus gave them a taste of what to expect.
Date coach Andrew Chow spoke about the qualities a person would want in a relationship and partner, and essential skills in communication.
The latter, he said, included not bringing up the past (especially in disagreements), maintaining eye contact, always trying to make joint decisions, always offering the other party the benefit of doubt, and concentrating on how one’s partner feels.
Chow’s session on the cruise will include tips on making good first impressions, making follow-ups and the next date, finding the right dating site, and online communication.
Empowering and equipping participants: The four gurus who will be conducting the personal development programmes on board the Singles Cruise Asia(from left) date coach Andrew Chow, image guru Murshidah Said, love gurus and international releasers Selina and Heiko Niedermeyer.
Image guru Murshidah Said will be conducting a “personal image empowerment” programme to guide participants on how they want to “brand” themselves and how they want to project their identity.
Love gurus and international releasers Heiko and Selina Niedermeyer demonstrated the power of releasing using the Lindwall Releasing Process.
Using the analogy of the human heart being a computer hard drive, Heiko said painful experiences can be like a virus that affects a computer’s functions.
“There are good and bad experiences in life, but painful experiences are the ones that affect the heart. They exist in our subconscious mind, and continue to affect our lives to some degree,” he said.
According to its founder’s website, the Lindwall Releasing Process is for one to “allow a past disturbance to surface, confront the situation as needed, then release the negative impact and emotional content by speaking aloud relevant, affirmative statements and believing in those statements”.
Malaysia’s first Singles Cruise Asia will set sail from Dec 6 to 10 on board the Legend of the Seas by Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.
The route will be a round trip from Singapore, docking at Port Klang, Malaysia, and Phuket, Thailand, and back to Singapore.
It is open to single men and women aged 21 and above.
