Movie Review

The are a lot of actions in the movie. It was a little less than what I expected.. its all about an explosive device that is called DC-8, which is VERY POWERFUL and could probably wipe out the whle continent. But its still a pretty nice movie to catch.. B'COS... At least its NOT Boring! haha.. Some parts can be quite complicated.. hence you would need to think! Well.. I like movies that allow some thinking so it would not be boring. The ending can be abit unexpected.. so jus be prepared. I shall not say much here... Enjoy the show! With HSBC credit card at GV the cheapest! haha..


Movie rating: 7/10


Met Tiffany Yong at the movie preview of HELIOS!

Heineken serves its coldest beer yet, leaving you refreshed with every sip

16 April 2015 Singapore - Heineken, the world’s leading international premium beer, launches its latest innovation, Heineken Extra Cold, in Singapore. Created by Heineken’s award-winning technology for innovation, Heineken Extra Cold serves its signature Heineken draught beer at subzero levels for a truly invigorating and extra refreshing experience till the last sip – perfect for Singapore’s year round summer heat!

Tapped as a smooth draught from its new and innovative frozen draught column, straight into a frozen glass, Heineken Extra Cold is served at an impressive -3°C to +1°C for an optimum sub-zero Heineken experience.

 
 
HEINEKEN EXTRA COLD BEER

Heineken Extra Cold is available in more than 110 markets globally including Singapore. Every glass of Heineken Extra Cold is served in accordance with the ‘Heineken Star Serve Ritual’, which details specific pouring angle, glassware cleanliness, foam skimming technique and serving standard to ensure the quality of the Heineken draught beer is consistently served at its highest so that enjoyment from a perfect Heineken draught beer is never compromised.
 

"We are excited to launch Heineken Extra Cold in Singapore as we are always looking forward to innovate and enhance consumer's drinking experience. With an award-winning technology that sustains beer draught at sub-zero temperatures, we are able to enhance the enjoyment of Heineken with Extra Cold. The experience is absolutely invigorating and perfect for Singapore's tropical weater all year round," shared René de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

cooked with some Jing Zhen Gu (Mushrooms) and mixed with some tasty sauce.. it tasted very well and not salty at all.. Excellent!

This Fried Kuay Teow was nice too.. its not every dry and easy to be consumed. It contains some simple toppings on it like the green and red pepper slices.

There are desserts like Mango Pudding, Mango Sago and Guilin Gao at the event!
I sincerely really LOVE the desserts.. they are all very nice to have after a great dim sum feast!
Not Gelate and Guilin Gao is very good for the skin! :)
