    Help plan party for pandas

    TO CELEBRATE the one-year anniversary of giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia's arrival in Singapore, Wildlife Reserves Singapore is looking for 10 individuals to be Panda Party Planners.

    Five of these lucky participants will be chosen by My Paper in an exclusive contest for readers.

    As a party planner, you'll be among the first to get a behind- the-scenes look at the giant pandas, by accompanying their keepers on a visit to the River Safari's bamboo nursery and the Giant Panda Forest kitchen.

    The party planners will assist Kai Kai and Jia Jia's keepers in preparing a special birthday cake and enrichment toy for the pandas on Aug 31.

    The planners will present these birthday surprises to Kai Kai and Jia Jia at a private panda- party event on Sept 6.

    To take part in the contest, tell us, in no more than 100 words, why you deserve to be a Panda Party Planner.

    Send your entry with your name, NRIC number, e-mail address and mobile number to

    The deadline for entries is on Sunday at 12pm.
