FIST OF DRAGON (龙拳) Gala Premiere

Sponsored Post

Got invites to Fist of Dragon’s Gala Premiere on 26 July so I went with Darilene! We went to the wrong venue at first because I confused Cathay Cineleisure with Cathay Cineplex hahaha omg feel so bad. And was contemplating whether to change out of the formal dress I wore for a school presentation but luckily I didn’t! It turned out to be a super exclusive event.

My pass and ticket 🙂

Lead actor cum director Michael Chuah was there, and so was Henry Thia.
Didn’t take much photos though, because I was feeling too shy and awkward LOL

Loved Henry Thia’s and Monday Kang’s characters best! And they acted very well too.
The former’s character was super comedic and the latter played a villian.

At the preview lounge with Darilene 😀
The “cocktail session” turned out to be a full blown reception!

Food was sooooo gooood 🙂

Movie Synopsis

“Fist of Dragon” tells the story of Li, who comes to Southeast Asia upon the request of his father to help out his uncle who has been facing financial difficulties. Li, upon arriving in town, feels out of place due to cultural differences. When he discovers that his uncle has been facing many hardships posed by the local mobsters, Li decides to stay and help his uncle get rid of them.

However, Li encounters numerous resistances from the locals as his actions incur the wrath of the triad and drags the whole town into turmoil. Moreover, his uncle’s daughter, Lily is on the triad’s side, and their relationship is badly affected when the confrontation between the two groups reaches its peak.

I like the themes in the movie a lot, especially how the town unites with one another to go against the hooligans. Like it teaches you something – to not be afraid to stand up to what you believe in.  I think fans of the action genre would also like the movie because the action sequences were all very intense!

Food tasting at RamenPlay

Sponsored Post

Attended a food tasting event at Junction 8’s RamenPlay on Wednesday, courtesy of Nuffnang! Went together with Darilene after our test and we had quite a good time 😀 We had some side dishes for starters and the student meal.

Very first dish we had – Yaki Gyoza!
Cooked to perfection… see the golden brown color?!

Accompanied by this sauce which goes very well together 🙂

This is something like takoyaki but it’s actually called Dango.
Omg super niceeee and I love it!!!!! 😀

The inside is actual meat, not hollow or flour!
RamenPlay prides itself on using quality, top-grade ingredients in their variety of dishes, as you can see.

So now I’ll introduce to you their student meal!
It consists of a choice of either their signature Mustard Chicken Rice OR their specialty Tonkotsu Ramen, and a soft drink! All at an affordable value at $8.80!

I had the Mustard Chicken Rice while Darilene had the ramen.
We tried each other’s ones too!

Generous portion 🙂

Bits of egg and chicken in the rice which was super fragrant.
Chicken on top was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside 😀

Darilene’s Tonkotsu Ramen!
It was missing half an egg and we told the staff.
Then they gave her a whole egg on a small dish! She gave me the other half heheheee ❤ 😀

Looks awesome right ;))))
I love Japanese braised eggs, they are so different from normal eggs and taste so yummeh. It’s like both the white and yolk melt in your mouth ahhh omg ❤❤❤

Array of spices to go with your food!
I loveee their sambal chilli, it’s spicy enough and just the way I like it.

What impressed me just as much as the food did was the service. Full marks, I tell you. Plus the environment was cosy yet spacious, I really like it ^^ All the more you should make a trip to RamenPlay sometime! 😀

Once again, thank you so much Nuffnang and RamenPlay for this wonderful opportunity and experience! ❤
