Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Padang Setia City Mall with few blogger friends for HyppTV first ever outdoor movie screening event in conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Featuring a collection of popular Chinese and Korean movies from channels on HyppTV – SCM HD (Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen), SCML HD (Forbidden City Cop), now Baogu HD (Cold War 2), tvN Movies HD (Fabricated City) and Red By HBO HD (See You Tomorrow), the event was opened to all HyppTV subscribers as well as members of the public, started as early as 11 am till 12 midnight.
Commenting on the event, Jeremy Kung, Executive Vice President, New Media, TM said: “Mid-Autumn in Chinese tradition is a harvest festival celebrated with a lunar appreciation and moon watching session. By organising HyppTV’s first outdoor movie screening, we are inviting not only our customers, but everyone to join us out in the open to bask in the moonlight and the environment, as well as to catch our latest special offerings of Chinese and Korean movies variety in this special occasion.”
“We remain committed to provide the best content for our customers and we have proven this with the continuous variety offerings and exclusive high quality programmes ever since we started. So with this first ever HyppTV Tanglung Movie Fest outdoor movie screening event, we are rewarding our customers for their never ending support towards our service while we continue to provide the best entertainment experience, regardless of their watching preference either at home or anywhere with our HyppTV Everywhere app,” he added.
The event was also hyped up with many exciting carnival-type activities such as lantern making workshop, colouring contest for kids, traditional tai chi martial arts, and lucky draws, together with food and beverages from popular food trucks filling appetites making the event a perfect fun filled weekend with the whole family.
Suddenly I heard screaming from the crowd. Oh… it was special performances by FS (Fuying & Sam) and Bell Yu Tian, both are my favourite local artists!
