Our little Macaron Family from bornincolour adding colours (literally) to our daily busy lives! Just goofing around in the office after shoot, chilling with our newly added cute furniture.
Ryan’s so happy with our little Macaron and Frigo Fridge compact dresser J Finally have a place to keep our accessories for our wonderful talents!
Just can’t get enough of Porky! She’s good with the far-away look. Um…Xi Guay Ong, Porky’s still cuter even though she takes after you 😀
Who says tissue boxes can’t be cute! 😀
Uh oh… She found where the guys stash their games! Busted!! 😛
We’re so in love with our piggy chair! <3
Can’t get enough of Miss Piggy!!

This February, NOC took a trip down to Seoul, South Korea – the land of our favorite K-pop stars and K-dramas! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to meet any Korean celebrities but the amazing places we went to make up for it. The weather was very cold, I think the coldest country we’ve probably ever visited so far. You’ll see our pale faces, blue and purple lips (literally the colour of Sylvia’s hair) and how we’re wrapped up with layers and layers of clothes!
Whoa!!!! The cotton candy is bigger than Sylvia’s and Ryan’s head combined! Looks delicious though!
Feed me, my love!
Aww… my angel [icon color=”#444444″ size=”16px” name=”awesome-heart-empty”] Oops…I mean Sylvia’s angel 😀
Bryant likes thick trunks! Ladies, you know what type he likes now!
A picture paints a thousand…. SSSSSHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
Bryant looks like a K-pop star in his own music video. Agree?
Sikeen also wants to be a K-pop star! Wah, Sikeen why you look so cool ah? Wait a minute…
Oh!… that’s why… Hi Spiderman!
Oh man…that fishy smell is overwhelming!!
The Band of NOC! Looking good, guys! Can be a nice album cover! When are you recording your new album ah?
Joanna looking like an angel with the nice soft lens flare! (Xi Guay Ong, this is how an angel looks like!)
Who dares to challenge the mighty Xi Guay Ong!
Sikeen, are you suuuuureeee????????
Joanna’s fascinated by the air suction thingy! It’s amazing that the camera can capture the smoke!
The comic version of The Ring 😀
Wrapped like a dumpling! Poor Sylvia…that cold, huh? Xi Guay Ong: “I’ll keep you warm! No fear!”
Slurping away an iced drink in a cold weather???? Not cold meh??? Power to Sylvia!
Hmm…where to next? 4 people, 1 phone.
Walking on air! Virus is really… airbourne! I want that power too!
That concludes our Korea trip! It’s been a cold but wonderful journey. Check out our Korea Travel Guide on our Youtube channel to watch Sikeen and Joanna eat live octopus, and many other wonderful things in Korea!
Apparently, soccer is a universal language understood by everyone internationally. So for the next sports day, we decided to test the casts and see who qualifies for a degree, diploma, A level and O level certificate, or if they will fail terribly at that language.
Want to know why? Don’t forget to tune in to our channel this Sunday to see how each of them fared, and also let us know who you think deserves degrees cert and who deserves a big red F on their report card!
The next video is dedicated to our lovely Singaporean Aunties. Every middle-aged women can be addressed as an ‘auntie’ in Singapore, whether they are related to you or not. And aunties are everywhere here. You see them at the markets, on public transports, in front of schools waiting to pick up their precious child and even at shopping centers trying to get the best bargain. Some of them even have an online presence! Usually, you get to hear their presence before you even get to see them.
We had a fun time shooting this, and I have gathered 4 facts about our dear Aunties from the shoot!
Want to know other auntie facts? Then don’t forget to watch our next video coming up this Sunday at 3pm!

Have you ever wondered how a weekend with NOC is like? Well, if you haven’t heard, curiosity kills the cat, but this time I’m going to let the poor feline out of the bag (before it dies). Last week, cameras were following them around during the weekend documenting their every movement. We even have a special friend from L.A. who came to visit over the weekend! If you have been following us on Instagram, you’ll know who. So, do check out our YouTube channel because the video is out!
But wait! Before you go, here’re some behind the scenes for the upcoming video this Sunday (yes, we’re uploading 2 videos this week). This Sunday’s video is about frenemies! What is a frenemy? A frenemy is someone who is both a friend and an enemy, hence the portmanteau “frenemy”. This sort of relationship is toxic, but you can’t seem to cut them off. Do you have any frenemies
If you have anyone in mind that you are unsure if he or she is a frenemy, this upcoming video will definitely clear your doubts! You might notice some of the character traits of a frenemy!
Do you have a wingman who does everything but wing? You might just recognize that enemy in this video!
A friend in need a friend indeed! Stay tuned for this upcoming video to watch how Sikeen renders his assistance to the wheelchair-bound Franster!
Keep a lookout on our social media platforms for more updates, and be sure to catch this video’s release on Sunday at 3pm!

If you enjoyed our first episode of NOC Sports Day, you will enjoy the upcoming one too!
We started the shoot early in the morning but look at their faces! Don’t they all look excited? This week, we have a different kind of sports prepared for our casts. Can you guess what it is? (Hint, look at what Sylvia is wearing!)
Our girls (and boy) sure do look sexy in their bodysuits, don’t they? All the colors just reminds me of Power Rangers! Hmmm… I wonder what kind of costumes they will be wearing this time round! After Sylvia’s ketupat last week, I’m placing bets on dumplings or mooncakes.
Oh wow! Did Michelle’s and Sikeen’s name came out of the watermelon helmet one after another? Are the lovebirds going to be in the same team again? That better happen because my ship for them has long sailed into the depths of Pacific Ocean! There is no turning back.
There’re so many things I want to share about this particular episode, and I can’t wait for you guys to watch it, but I’m not going to say more least it turns out spoiler-ish. So do refresh your YouTube page this Sunday at 3pm to find out what this challenge is about!
Have you seen our latest video on “TV VS Real Life”? If you have already done so, you would have known that NOC has a new girl and her name is AURELIA! On the other hand, many of you have been wondering where Sikeen went to and definitely want him back on our videos so… THE COMEBACK OF SIKEEN IS REAL! ☺
OH LOOK!!! Are you cracking your head and wondering what our cast is doing? Why are Michelle and Alyna praying so fervently? Why is Joanna looking so frustrated?Is the weather that was a little too hot for her? What is Sylvia doing with the watermelon helmet and smiling to herself while Aurelia and Sikeen are looking so calm?
We all know that Singapore has been really hazy and it’s really a dread to head out from our homes. The haze is such a hindrance to our daily lives! Don’t we all agree on that? However, keeping a healthy lifestyle is a must and nobody wants to fall sick, so please take good care ofyourselves and drink more water!
AND SURPRISE!!! NOC recently came out with a whole new level of game plan to fight strongly against the Singapore haze. This morning, the sky is pretty clear as it wasn’t that hazy so we are having our very own NOC Sports Day!
What is NOC Sports Day? It is NOC’s whole new series of entertainment game show that brings you closer to us! Even though exercising seemed impossible and tough during the haze period with most of us rather staying in and nua-ing in our air con rooms, our cast and crew decided to be garang and downright crazy and do some sports instead!
This time, we’re bringing out the unusual side of the casts and have a great day exercising together! After much debating, they had all accepted the different challenges they received and they were all ready to go for it. Want to know what challenge each casts received? Remember to stay tuned because it will be revealed when the video has been released!!
Look at the cast looking all good, together with Ryan!
That’s all for now! Is your suspense level higher than the haze PSI?
If you are having your exams, don’t fret, NOC is launching our brand new Night Owl Cinematics app this Sunday too!
Here’s an exclusive peek into the event where Ryan and Sylvia attended as special speakers!
Have you seen the video where friends talked about Ryan and Sylvia’s differences? If you haven’t, you should totally head on to YouTube to watch it. The video lets you know more about Ryan and Sylvia personally.
Sylvia and Ryan have very different personalities and characters, whereby Sylvia’s the adventurous girl and Ryan’s the stay-at-home guy. These 2 people seem so different but yet they fit so well for each other, just like how Dee Kosh described them in the YouTube video “they are just like yin and yang- one can’t live without another”.
That video was made for Heaven and Earth’s launch of Apple+Lemongrass and Mango+Camomile drinks. Just like Ryan and Sylvia, the new drinks unexpectedly are awesome combinations. The launch event was held last week and the quirky couple attended as the special speakers, where they got to talk more about their lives together.
Side track a bit. There were 2 vending machines where we got to try the new drinks in bottles- all we got to do was just to press the button. It was a magical feeling, by just being able to get free drinks from a vending machine. Don’t even have to dig for coin to put into those machines. Just press a button only!
Mama Owl enjoying herself at the event, looking cute too! And, the apples and mangoes you see there are all real. They look sooo tasty with water droplets on the surface and under those spotlights. I was so tempted to take bite in them.
A preview video was shown during the event. And if you haven’t already seen the full video on YouTube, just letting you know that there are many YouTubers like Ryan Higa, JianHao and many others who shared their experiences working with Ryan and Sylvia. Just like how you see Fish and Dee Kosh on the screen! 🙂
Sylvia smiling so sweetly while answering the questions from the MC. There were many sweet moments during the interview. Just like when they answered how they met. Personally I don’t think it’s a super sweet one but how the story developed from there is just awwww…
The sweet interaction between Sylvia and Dabao when he answered a question with an unexpectedly sweet answer. The MC asked “What’s the thing on your mind everyday?” and he answered “Winning her over”. Too sweet can! He even received applause from the audiences just because it’s simply too sweet already!! 🙂
The couple also shared some stories about their relationship with JianHao, like how Ryan hated JianHao in the first place and only started to like him after having worked with him. Now the relationship grew into something more than just friendship (I know what you are thinking but it’s family) -they became like a family. JianHao even has the keys to their house. There was once when JianHao went into Ryan’s house and took the chocolate from the fridge and left, after that he texted Ryan saying that he took his chocolates. Ryan replied him by saying “Yes I know, I was there”. So what happened was that Ryan saw everything as he was at his table.
There were even masseurs at the event to provide a relaxing experience. In the midst of their busy lives, Ryan and Sylvia got to take some time off to relax themselves. And one of the thing that they mentioned during the interview was that Ryan likes to stay at home, if not he would like to go out to do spa therapies. I think this is the perfect event for him 🙂
That’s all for now! Now that you have some glimpse into their private lives, hope you guys understand how hardworking and how much effort they put into each and every videos you see on the NOC YouTube channel. Be sure to support them by subscribing to the Ryan Sylvia channel! Or you can even purchase a NOCtee from our online shop! Stay tuned for the new video coming out Sunday 3pm! 😀
Just recently, NOC did a shoot at WorkHouse. Yes, the place itself is called WorkHouse, not just any workhouse. The place is spacious and has nice interior design, an excellent place for you to hold any event or may even be a cool office for your business. You can check them out here!
The day started out as really sunny with white clouds and a tinge of haze in the air which then got worse as the day went by. Thankfully, we survived!
WorkHouse! We are here! Look at our excited faces! Although Franster’s look is kinda.. Franster.
Now, let the filming begin!
But first thing first, how about a photo? The upcoming project is a must-watch for all the fans out there! It will be very interesting. Can’t wait to let you guys see it!
Let’s take another happier one with controlled excited-ness! Girls looking pretty and Franster looking good! Do you want to try guessing what’s the upcoming video about? 😀
And there’s this chio white spiral staircase in the premise! While we wait for shooting to resume, we just had to do this. Couldn’t resist taking photo~! And enough of normal looking poses, let’s have a fun shot!
Let’s have a mini game! The name of the game is called *drumroll* “Spot the Difference”! Question: Comparing this photo with the previous one, who moved and who stayed the same? Do give your answer in the comments section! The prize will be….. NOC’s effort in future videos 😀
Last but not least, we had group photo to end the day! And look! There’s JianHao and Fish! Are you already wondering what’s this shoot all about? Alright, I shall let you in on some insider’s news since you came to read the blog. Well, this video is… interestingly personal
That’s all for now! Be sure to watch this video once its out! Also, do check out NOC’s videos at YouTube and subscribe to get the latest updates! 🙂
Have you seen our latest travel guide featuring Perth? I bet you did, right? The weather there was kinda (well, very) cold but the sky is amazing, pictures turn out nice no matter how we take it. We took so many nice photos on this trip.
The weather was so cold and the NOC girls wore so little for the shoot making sure the photos come out nicely, they did all these just for you, our dear supporters! I shall just let the pictures do the talking.
This is one of those amazing photos snapped there.
When I mean cold, it is THIS cold!
NOC love is just what we need in this cold cold weather! ❤

Besides filming the travel guide, we also took a new batch of photos for the NOC Tees. And if you haven’t already checked out our T-shirts, you can find them at our shop! The girls had to brave the cold to make sure the photos come out nicely. They did all these just for you, our dear supporters.. so must continue to support them hor 🙂

Sneak Peak into our Behind-The-Scenes for the upcoming video! There are many interesting pictures from this shoot but we had to filter out as we want to keep you guys in suspense! 😀 It was a really early morning shoot under the hot sun but thankfully, the production crew and casts made it through the day! We started the day at Wild Wild Wet before moving on to D Resort which was amazing I must say. All photos by the talented Julian (@Juliantaytm)!
There are many more interesting scenes that were filmed! Be sure to catch the release of this video on Sunday, 3pm! Now, make a guess what do you guys think Ryan’s transformation will be? 😉
Hi everyone! Here are some sneak peaks of the video that we are releasing this coming Sunday! I shall not reveal too much but it’s certainly something that we have never done before. As much as we would like to share more on the video, we have decided to just reveal a little bit of the shoot which took 16 hours to complete filming 🙂 The pictures below are from the night shoot which is probably just 20% of the scenes for the entire video.

Hi, all! We are so excited to share with you guys some of our experiences throughout the 4 days of event which consists of the Maker’s Boot Camp and YouTube Fan Fest 2015!!!
So basically, Ryan and Sylvia were Mentors for the 2 Day Maker’s Boot Camp and they were there to share their experiences with aspiring YouTubers who were itching to know more. It is definitely enriching as many aspiring YouTubers who want to know more got to ask Ryan and Sylvia some questions up close and personal! Not forgetting that our Xi Guay Ong and Xiao Bitch actually guided their team in filming their very own videos.
So, most of our NOC Girls and production crew subsequently joined in for the after party held at Hotel Jen where all of them got to meet and know some international YouTubers better! We certainly had a good session just chilling and meeting people of the same field. 😀
Moving on to more parties, press conferences and chilling out with everyone else! It’s definitely packed with activities and a whole lot of places to teleport to and as much as we wish that we could just use some special effects (like how we did in some of our videos), we just had to make full use of the time and manpower we have! #TeamNOC
So, that kinda concludes that 2 day Maker’s Bootcamp, of course not forgetting the After Party which is held at Hotel Jen’s Rooftop! That’s not the end though, as we were all excited for YouTube Fan Fest! We are stoked to meet our fans and take some selfies! Ryan Sylvia, some of our NOC Girls and our latest addition (which you will find out later) prepared for the Red Carpet event which is just one of the highlights of the day!
So after the Red Carpet, NOC actually organised a dinner at Dancing Crab for everyone! That dinner consisted of more than 80 YouTubers from all over the world and the Maker’s crew! It was really heartwarming to see everyone being themeslves out of the parties, events and press conferences. The gathering was really light-hearted with everyone enjoying the feast with some drinks. Ryan, who doesn’t usually drink at all, spontaneously took a few sips!!!
The night ended with some partying (again) and more getting-to-know each other! We’re so glad that despite the busy schedule, we were able to bring some of the YouTubers out for massages, more makan-ing and going around. And so, these few days passed really quickly and we were off for the final day of the event!
That concludes the coverage on the entire 4 days! Don’t forget to catch the video coverage on Sunday! We have more insights and interviews on the video that was filmed throughout the 4 days! Can’t wait to share it with you guys. We certainly had a great experience and it was a pleasure meeting up with everyone who was there. NOC will continue to work hard and bring you more entertainment! We love you guys so much <3
The long awaited #YouTubeFanFest is here again! It’s gonna be a few days of fun filled activities and meeting Youtubers from all over 😀 We are so excited to be sharing this big day with Wah Banana, Jian Hao, JinnyboyTV, WongFu Productions, David Choi, Tiffany Alvord and many more!
For those who followed @Nightowlcinematics on Instagram, Ryan already posted some instructions on how to win 5 pairs of Super Fan Tickets (each ticket is worth $155) for our supporters! So hurry and check out our Instagram to find out more. We are all excited to meet as many of you as possible! Most of our members will be there so be sure to catch us 😀 Let us re-cap on last year’s #YouTubeFanFest!
Sylvia at the sharing session!
All paying attention to our supporters and what they have to say 🙂
So last week, Ryan posted a Memes contest for our supporters to join! We have received many of your interesting and creative Memes. It was such a tough choice deciding because we had many good laughs going through what was being sent it! 🙂 As promised, 3 lucky supporters will get 1 NOC T-shirt each! So here are our picks 🙂 We will be contacting the lucky winners shortly!
Thank you everyone who have participated! We hope you guys enjoyed yourselves 🙂 Cheers!
