Cineleisure’s Next Online Sensation is back for the second time this year!
I’m thrilled and very honoured to be chosen as one of the judges this year alongside
our very own homegrown Barbie Qiuting and the ever-gorgeous Beatrice!
The person we are looking for this year is someone who is social media savvy and best able to
represent the F.F.L. facets of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard.
Get ready for more Vlogging, Blogging, Facebooking, Twittering and Instagraming.
With a total of 5 Challenges to complete and each a title to bag, as well as the grand prize of $1,000 Cash,
an Olympus Camera, a Larger than life sized poster and a year’s supply of movie tickets.
Because I am such a glutton (and probably also because I co-own The Tiramisu Hero),
I was assigned to Challenge #1, the Nomnom Challenge!
As we all know by now, there are tons of things to choose from when one is looking for
some good food in Cathay Cineleisure Orchard.
And because eating is much more than just putting food in your mouth these days,
I shall introduce you to some of the praise-worthy places you can go “nom nom” in Cathay Cineieisure Orchard!
To make things simpler, I have created two scenarios –
when you’re rushing for a movie or when you’re settling for something fulfilling.
Rushing for a movie? We have all been through this.
You’re famished but yet you don’t want to miss a single minute of that blockbuster you just bought tickets for.
Popcorns or nachos are just not enough to satisfy you and you are craving more!
Next time you are in Cathay Cineleisure Orchard and caught in this same situation, run to these places!
They have a huge array of sauces for you to pick from and they are all so yummy!
(OK, I only tasted two before but I assume they are all very yummy haha)
They have a seating area so you won’t have to scramble around and look for a place to rest your bumbum.
You can grab anything you see off the conveyer belt and I’m sure that’s gonna help save you a lot of time!
The queue can get quite long during peak hours though,
so don’t be taken aback when you spot a line outside this restaurant the next time you’re here.
You don’t have to wait for someone to seat you and there is no service charge.
Dining cannot get any more fuss-free than eating in a food court.
If I’m rushing, I know I’ll never go wrong with food like chicken rice or roti prata –
the preparation of the food is fast and unlike hot soupy stuff,
I can finish an entire plate of chicken rice in minutes! Haha.
All three of my recommendations are at Basement 1 and there is a box office there
so you can get your tickets right there too! That would save you so much time!
If you’re in Cathay Cineleisure Orchard for a date night with your special someone,
there are also many other places to go to!
This unpretentious and quaint bistro is tucked quietly in a corner on Level 3 of the mall.
It’s a great place to hang out for a quiet meal with that special someone if you have time to spare
and sweeting nothings to whisper. Haha!
Every time I think of Seoul Garden, I’ll think of my secondary school days where I’d go Seoul Garden with my classmates.
But when I saw Seoul Garden Hotpot, I realized that it’s not the same as the one I visited in my younger days.
So A and I decided to check it out together, and see if we could relive those secondary school days through our taste buds! :p
We also sneaked into Shokudo for our guilty pleasure – desserts! I’m so into their thick toast.
This restaurant probably has the nicest view in Cathay Cineleisure Orchard and
I’m sure anyone who has been to Cathay Cineleisure Orchard will not miss it!
To round things up, here is a video and VERY amateur song I wrote purely for entertainment purposes only.
I cringed at my own song at certain parts so please just cringe and forget if the same thing happens to you.
So go ahead and put your thinking hat on, let the creative juices flow!
If you want to be inspired, you can always head down to Cathay Cineleisure Orchard to look for materials.
