Halloween Horror Nights @ Universal Studios, 19th Oct

Postby Akimbo » Mon, 01 Oct 2012 10:16 pm

Hey people, this event will be in two weeks, I was thinking whether you want to experience it together! They say that the first one last year was a great scare! So I'm definitely going this year.

Here's the link at RWS for you to see.

The early bird phase is unfortunately closed already, but if you had bought the ticket (or are planning to anyway) let's go on the same day!

By the way, I have some leads to an even cheaper ticket than early bird ticket (which I am getting) but it's all first come first serve, so if you are interested, e-mail or PM me, and text me with your number for total confirmation, and I promise I'll do what I can to get you your ticket.

Cheers and Happy Halloween!!!!!

Looper Movie @ Marina Square, Oct 14th

Postby Akimbo » Wed, 10 Oct 2012 2:41 pm

Hey people, as usual, another thing for the weekend that I'm organizing.

This weekend it's all about the mind-bending concept of "killing your future self to prevent yourself from being killed, while the future self must try to not get killed by the younger self, but he cannot kill the killer because in doing so, would be killing himself!"

And that's the rather complicated dilemma of the movie, Looper

Image

Well, currently three other people are showing interest in it, and now is the "official" event!

We're thinking of doing it on Sunday afternoon, around 3 pm. Which I saw there's time slot at that time.

Please contact me by PM, or e-mail me with your phone number, and once confirmed, I'll buy your tickets first to make it easy for everybody! I'm gonna wait until Friday night, and then I'll buy the tickets.

Cheers everybody!

Well, the cheaper ticket is sold out. But we can still go together anyway. Event tickets are at $68 per person. If anyone's interested on going together with me and 13 other people, just seek me out...

Red Bull Flugtag 2012, 28th October, Sentosa

Postby Akimbo » Thu, 25 Oct 2012 9:56 am

Hello people,

Following Oktoberfest, here's another event that came from Austria. Singapore's first ever Flugtag! Here's a quote from events.insing.com

Image

Redbull’s flugtag is basically a competition where a team of four, comprising of one pilot and three helpers get together to design, build and fly homemade flying contraptions! Besides being able to actually fly off and reach the landing base, competitors will also be judged on flight distance, creativity of the craft and showmanship.

The Flugtag has inspired a myriad of wacky designs ranging from wedding cake, bears, tacos and pterodactyls. Flugtags have been extremely popular around the world, and more than 100 flugtags have been held, since its inception in 1992.


That's the gist of what's it all about. In Singapore, they're holding it at Siloso Beach Sentosa this Sunday, 28th of October, and I'm planning to go for the laughs and the booze!

Below is the official site of Redbull and also a map for the event at Siloso.

If you're still in Singapore for the long weekend, come on over, and let's have some fun at the beach for the laughs. :D

E-mail or PM me, so I can contact you later on.

Cheers!

I'll PM you my contacts. No big groups yet. Just me and a few people, and perhaps meet some German colleague of mine there.

Thanks for the offer, Taurus. That'd be great for the weekend.

But so sorry, I can't come on that one, because I already have something on on Sat evening. I'm trying to figure out on Skyfall and Perks of Being A Wallflower for Sunday, though...will post something up once I've decided.

Double-Whammy Movie Day! Nov 4th, 2012

Postby Akimbo » Wed, 31 Oct 2012 2:21 pm

Hello dudes and dudelines.

This first weekend of November, my plan is to have a double-whammy movie day with a late lunch and early dinner to hang out first!

I understand that there will be a LOT of people who wants to watch this (at least the first one), as I already saw a couple of film timings in all 3 big cinemas are sold out, or at least the great seats are already taken.

Therefore, I'm taking the initiative and gonna buy 8 seats (the other two is reserved for me and my friend) extra to whoever wants to join us. Newbies and oldies are both welcome. That's why I'm having a late lunch and early dinner for us to get to know/catch up with each other. Don't worry, I'll make sure all of you guys are comfortable.

Okay, firstly...

Image

We're first greeted by James Bond, in the new movie, Skyfall, which as of I post this post, is still strong at 94% in Rottentomatoes. I don't need to tell you guys what it's about, right? :D
The venue will be at (I will edit this later on, once I've confirmed the tickets with people who shows interest, cause I might just buy more than 10) and I'm looking to watch it arnd 3pm.

Once we finish, we'll be heading off for the late dinner or just coffee, but if you also haven't watched the movie, I'll be watching this one too.

Image

The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Well, we all used to be in high school, I'm sure. And you should also know the ups and downs during that period. If you've read the book (which I haven't, unfortunately) than you should know what I'm talking about. But the trailer itself has already almost drove me into tears (yeah, I'm a sensitive guy and yeah I can emphatize with outcasts being bullied during highschool)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5rh7O4IDc0

There's a clip from Youtube, and all the romantics, you'll love the quote in the end of the trailer...

I know there are people who say these don't happen. I know that these will be stories someday. But right now, we are alive. And in this moment...I swear, we are infinite.


Loved how they had edited the trailer.

For this one, the venue is at Cineleisure Orchard, I don't know how many will be interested, so I won't be buying any yet. and I'm sure the couple seats can even be bought at the last minute anyway. Haha. And the rating from Rottentomatoes, is currently staying at 86%! Definite watch for me.

So there you have it. If you're interested, just PM/e-mail me your contacts, and once I can get in touch with you by phone, you're confirmed.

To those who have my number already, just text me and let's hang out!

I'll be buying the tickets on Thursday afternoon. After that, I won't be able to guarantee that we'll sitting in the same area in the cinema. I'll be choosing the best seats possible ;)

Cheers and have a great week ahead!

Hahaha

Well, anyway I'm a dude, I'm 24 and a foreigner here in Singapore. Basically that's the only thing this forum needs to know for now. :cool:

I'm way better when you do meet me in person though. :twisted:
