Corona Extra Wants to Bring You On A Trip for 2 to Koh Samui! Let The World Wait.

1 comment :

I am usually not one to be fussing over vacations and travelling abroad but I do realize that I am a bit under traveled for a social media junkie and as a 25 year old "boy". So early this year I made my promise to at least take more trips within Malaysia and maybe one or two overseas trip as well. ( That's subjected to my financial status of course). I very open to the idea of sponsored trips as well *wink* but that's a whole different story.

The other most possible way was to win trips for competitions that are always popping everywhere but since I am not a comp-ter ( competition hunter) of any sorts I usually don't pay much attention to it lor.

I managed to spot one from Corona Malaysia about a trip of 2 days 1 night to Koh Samui and the mechanics seem easy and the odds are actually quite good seeing that there aren't THAT many Corona drinkers (with lime of course) in Malaysia RIGHT???

Click on the link to join.

Since the odds seem favorable and even though I just only found out about it this morning (-_-"). I thought it's worth a share since you still have the weekends to grab a bucket at their outlets. Each bucket or 6 pack entitles you to one entry!

The mechanics are quite simple as well.

Step 1: Fill in your details.

Step 2: Answer 2 simple questions

*visual unavailable*

Step 3: Create themed slogan

*visual unavailable*

and you are done!

It's pretty simple and straight forward to I just went to the nearest supermarket I could find and bought a six pack to enjoy later as well. :P 


Definitely think you guys should give it a try too! Don't mind having some friends joining as well (chewah macam sudah menang :P, *fingers and toes crossed*)

Join the competition and try the beer if you haven't already.(remember the lime) 

It wouldn't hurt to Let The World Wait once in a while for you relax on a tropical beach lor! 

By the way, this is Koh Samui.


IKR!!!!

Johnnie Walker Presents: Circuit Lounge

2 comments :

Race day in the mornings and Party in the night, those are the awesome set up when it comes to Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge. A amazing experience VIP style thanks to the smooth tasting crowd favorite whisky Johnnie Walker.

The Circuit Lounge was held at Subang Terminal 2, Skypark, a close down airport terminal that is now home to the Circuit Lounge and it's amazing set up. It's great to see an abandoned airport hall be used in such away. Housing a group of great people ready to enjoy the night with the fabulous Johnnie Walker.



Exclusively by invitation only, the guest were ushered in VIP style to an array of great cocktails and photo booths, dress in stylish black or shimmering gold, a presence of both style and glamour.



Even as we walked in we were greeted with the awesome *Imma Bleep youup * Malaysia's own Swedish House Mafia! They really bombed the place even though it just started. The crowd was still getting warmed up but they were really rocking it. It was gold when they dropped Fearless Heart. fuuuh...





After their set, they were followed by DJ Vogue Williams and DJ Ivan Gough, both of them had their share of moments but if you ask me! *Imma Bleep youup* was the best! Malaysian pride :P


The night continues with lots of Johnnie Walker, great friends and lots of music! The things you should always do at such parties is to let loose and just party away, ure with friends! If you are not with friends, keep walking and make more friends, everyone will be in good spirits.





I don't really fancy people who just sits there and do nothing lo, at least smile and try to enjoy it a bit!

Nearly forgot to mentioned! Johnnie Walker hired a few of the world professional bar tenders to mix the cocktails for us that night! Here is the Thai Champ Suwapit! :) He is very outgoing, a true bartender person!



Manage to meet up with Joyce aka KinkyBlue Fairy too! She was talking about short hair and the morning after problems when u sleep after bathe the next morning. Such an awesomely fun person! 

It was altogether another great night! Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge is as always one of the main clubbing events of the year and I am quite sure this is only the beginning for this year!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) Movie Review

No comments :

Title: G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Language: English
Genre: Action / Adventure
Running Time: 110 minutes


What is it about:-
The skirmish between GI Joe vs Cobra continues with Cobra plotting for yet another world dominating plan. The Joes are forced to hide and bide their time when the most powerful man on earth is not who he seems to be.



What do I think about it:-
Apart from the *barely making it* action scenes, GI Joe: Retaliation was a mundane action flick that survived only on its reputation.

A group of character that hardly had any emotional attachment, characters were over lapping and blurry to the extent that anyone dying would not have matter even a certain key player in the first installment.

GI Joe tried too much to create impressive action scenes, strong character variations and a genuine realistic crisis that it forgotten about the actual flow of the film. I think I was watching one of those 30 minutes Saturday morning Cartoons. It wasn’t really fast pace, just not properly edited to create great flow.

The story premises was cliché and uneventful. You wouldn’t even bother to know about the ending or the story of each character despite them not having any to start off.

The amount of subplots left opened are quite annoying, one minute you have a seemingly love interest thing, then there was the father daughter thing, then there was the revenge went wrong thing. If you can't close it don't open it up yet.

A total drag and typically bad action flick that delivered only the minimum of what it could have been able to achieve.

Rating: 1/ 5

“You could say that the franchise has been killed, every last bit of hope is lost for such a great comic and it would take a reboot (Pls no more Christopher Nolan) to actually revive it again”

Feed backs are welcomed! As I realized many seem tto like the movie and this proves em to be the minority so I would definitely love to hear your opinion as to why you think this was awesome or great?

Hennessy KYRIOS Launch Party at Butter Factory,KL

No comments :

Hennesy always likes to bring the weekend closer by having Thursday parties! This time for the launch of it's ever stunning Hennessy V.S.O.P. KYRIOS at the Butter Factory!

It's always a good night ahead when you are heading for a party held by Hennessy. Djs of the night were B.A.T.E, Mr. Nasty & Guru Guru plus the very very gorgeous DJ Cookie. What is there not to love for a night like this? Okay, maybe the fact that we still have to tackle Friday but who cares, party on! Responsibly of course!


The stunning Hennessy KYRIOS was the lead of the night and considering it's matte finishing and a illuminating logo, it definitely fits to be know as the Guardian Of The Codes. It is perhaps my favorite among the Privilege collection. Swaaaag.

A little photo op here and there with the party peeps is always essential with the wonderfully improving B.A.T.E. at the background. People were pouring slowly and by 10pm the place were filled up, not to mention the bartenders and waiters were on high gears serving a ever flowing variety of Hennessy trademark long drinks. :)




This is Anna, she is always super hyper at the beginning of the party one. My best shout buddy cause we like to scream at each other, she probably thinks she is dam cute here..... (to be continued later)


By 10.15pm everyone was starting to get the full mood out and with a short introduction to the Hennessy KYRIOS, the party was swinging in full force with the presentation of black skin suited man and chicks plus the start of DJ Cookie's set. 



DJ Cookie did showed us why she was one of the best DJ in Taipei and the crowd seemed to love her much as well, perhaps it was the constant mood of raves that I was in but she still seemed a bit too mild for me though she did throw in some of the most exciting EDM tunes to get the crowd crazy, gooood crazy...

We were crazy by 11am, letting the smooth sensation of the Hennessy KYRIOS run down our throats as we were given the privilege of never ending enjoyment of the drink. Hennessy Ginger mix has always been my favorite Long drink, the spiciness that the ginger gives always adds that extra kick I like. 




Crazy enough for me to actually bump into an old friend of mine! He was a pretty awesome drummer back in the days and it was certainly hella awesome to have bumped into him for a couple of drink as you can see we were super happy. This old friend's name is Lim Song Jun, no i don't think he is Korean -_-. hahaha.


After Dj Cookie's uplifting bangers, Mr. Nasty and GuruGuru dropped in and built on the momentum Cookie left for us, dropping some of the finer tunes in EDM history. They should have went Bass Agent mode but I guess people still needed to work the next day! XD




Some girls developed an instinct to spontaneously pose when a camera is around. This girl in green was a pro, confirm! LoL.

So the night went on and went, with more Hennessy KYRIO along with lots of picture snapping and party dancing plus the massive shoutings and here to continue my story of what happen to Anna after an awesome night of Hennessy, this is the 2nd time she fall prey to the epic happiness that Hennessy brings :). But don't worry she was in good hands.


Well down Anna, next time again! XD




It was definitely another incredible night and Hennessy KYRIOS will still be making it's way to Penang and Johor soon for the party people there!

Hennessy KYRIOS guards your codes with DJ Mr. Nasty & Guru-Guru and B.A.T.E

No comments :

Join KYRIOS, Guardian of the Codes that make Hennessy V.S.O.P the world’s most loved cognac, as we take a look at the respective Codes of B.A.T.E. and Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru - two DJ duos who have been making waves at parties and clubs in Malaysia and beyond.


Guarding Your Codes with Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS and Mr. Nasty & Guru-Guru
Mr. Nasty & Guru-Guru is probably one of the more unique personality in Malaysia's EDM scene, sometimes going by the alias of Bass Agents as well. These two individuals brought the hardstyle of EDM in to the club scene is from then on the go to DJ's if you ever feel like letting loose completely through dance.

Being in the industry for 11 years, these two stayed strong with their code of never surrendering no matter the circumstances and continue to be a power house in our local scenes. It is a great choice for them to be inspiring us to Guard our own codes as well.




Guarding Your Codes with Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS and B.A.T.E.

B.A.T.E or rather Brain And The Eye is one of the rising stars in our clubbing scene, it's an honor to be able to say that they formed around the same time that I got myself into the EDM scene as well so I guess I share a certain connection with them. Their gigs are always different and continously evolving that makes it so much more enjoyable for a great night out!

It's great to see that they have so much thought into what they are doing and showing us that they indeed have what it takes to be featured along side the Hennessy KYRIOS and V.S.O.P. pretty sure that they will be growing even more rapidly this year as well!



KYRIOS, the third addition to Hennessy V.S.O.P’s Privilege Collection debuts in entertainment outlets nationwide this March 2013. Catch B.A.T.E. and Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru at the KYRIOS nationwide party series.
