Local lifestyle blogger Sara Shantelle Lim is throwing a sponsored $40,000 bash to celebrate her 27th birthday on Friday night.
But the entrepreneur's extravagant bash has drawn flak from netizens, with many calling her "a freeloader" and slamming her for "showing off" and being "shameless", reports The New Paper.
In her press release about her "candylicious neon birthday bash 2014", Miss Lim named all her sponsors and listed the freebies she's getting from them.
