Tiger Crystal Facebook Photo Contest – Winner To Stay @ ICEHOTEL, Sweden

Tiger Crystal, the limited edition and distinctively refreshing brew from Tiger is back for the festive season and this time  around, with an exciting opportunity to win a rare experience to stay in a hotel made entirely out of ice and snow, the incredibly unique ICEHOTEL in Sweden.

Recommended by author Patricia Schultz as one of the 1000 Places to See Before You Die,   ICEHOTEL, situated in the small village of Jukkasjärvi in Sweden, is the world’s first ice hotel ever built. The largest ice hotel in the world, it is solely made out of 10,000 tons of ice and 30,000 tons of pure snow harvested from the picturesque Torne River.

Standing firm from only December to April each year, it goes through a rebuilding process from scratch each year. Each room is uniquely designed and the hotel offers amazing art, nature, accommodation and gastronomy experiences for the guests, totally different from what they have experienced in ordinary hotels.

Similar to the exclusive ICEHOTEL, Tiger Crystal which is only available during festive season, provides distinctively refreshing moments for consumers who are looking forward to try something different than the usual beers.

The easy drinking lager is refreshingly crisp, with full-flavoured characteristics that come from its unique ‘Cold Suspension’ brewing technique. This proprietary technique filters the beer at a crystal cold temperature of -1 degree Celsius to lock in the most desirable flavors and aromas inherent in Tiger Beer.

Sean Koh, Marketing Manager of Tiger said, “At Tiger, we constantly seek ways to bring even more innovative and refreshing drinking experiences to our consumers who are constantly on the lookout for something new and Tiger Crystal, with its smooth and refreshing taste, is exactly the perfect complement for the festive mood.”

He added, “Just like the refreshingly different experience that only a  Tiger Crystal can deliver, we are proud to offer our consumers an out of the ordinary experience through this ICEHOTEL consumer contest which has never been done by other brands in Malaysia.”

Tiger Crystal brings this once in a lifetime opportunity to its consumers through its “Refreshingly Different” Tiger Crystal Facebook photo contest. All they need to do is upload a photo of their most refreshingly different Tiger Crystal moment. The grand prize winner will walk away with a trip for two to the fascinating ICEHOTEL in Sweden. Contest begins on 10 November 2011 and will end on 10 December 2011.

Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

Foster the People is an fast-rising American indie band formed in 2009..I’ve always thought they were from the UK..

Foster the People‘s members Mark Foster (vocals, keyboards, piano, synthesizers, guitar, programming, percussion), Mark Pontius (drums and extra percussion), and Cubbie Fink (bass and backing vocals) formed the band while in their mid-twenties, in Los Angeles..

I would say the type of music they played are pretty much ‘unique’ in the American market but considered normal in the UK market..

On the first attempt on their first single, ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, one might say they sound like MGMT + early-Blur-era + Peter, Bjorn, John + Goldfrapp-male version, and the likes of Blur in their early years..

Their first studio album, ‘Torches’ is released in May 2011..

All songs are written by Mark Foster except for ‘Call It What You Want’, ‘Life On The Nickel’ (Mark Foster and Paul Epworth), and ‘Miss You’ (Mark Foster and Zach Heiligman)..

I would say if you are a Barsonic-goer, it’s pretty safe to say you would enjoy their album..

Been listening to FTP before it went viral on local airwaves..Their other tracks such as ‘Helena Beat’, ‘Call It What You Want‘, and others are pretty good too, if you are into that kinda music..Like I’ve said, not your common type of music..

Here are the music video and lyrics for ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People..

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks Lyrics

Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah he found a six shooter gun.
In his dads closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus x2:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He be coming home late, yeah he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

[Chorus x2:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.


[Chorus x4:]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

LIZARD – Theatre Play @ PJ LIve Arts, Jaya One

Winning Nyonya thriller performed in Chinese, “Lizard” is a 90-minute theatre performance that examines the relationship between family members, the manipulation of feelings and trust, and men’s obsession to control..

The story revolves around a conventional Chinese family with a paralysed mother who can only communicate through her eyes;

The father who had faithfully remained at the side of his wife;
The eldest son who owns a café at the age of 24;
A conservative and bashful elder daughter who writes for a living;
And the youngest daughter who is abrasive and unafraid to challenge the authority.
