TGIS (Thank Goodness It's SingTel) Season 2

Oh yes, it's TGIS!!!



I'm sure some of you may have question mark in your mind:

"What?" 
"TGIS?" 
"Do you mean TGIF?"

What you see are absolutely correct. Now, let me give you more details on what exactly is TGIS:
TGIS  - Thank Goodness It's SingTel

TGIS features things Singaporeans are passionate about and helps viewers make sense of the world of gadgets, social media and technology. Season 1 was very well received with some episode receiving as many as 373k views. 

Thus, Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) has launched the second season of the hugely popular online lifestyle series on YouTube, TGIS. With a new look for its second season, TGIS aims to entertain and educate young Singaporean adults on infotainment news with local and international flavor. 

The show retains its vivacious host from Season 1, Joanne-Marie Sim, who was voted Singapore’s next social media star during last year’s SingTel Facebook casting call.

TGIS kicked off its second season on August 8, 2012 with a National Day special episode, featuring popular Singaporeans artists and personalities like Hossan Leong, Tay Kewei, Ginette Chittick and Alvelyn Alko. On the show, they shared their views on what it means to be Singaporean and also their fields of work.

Check out some of the behind-the-scene photos:
