Golden Village [GV] is 20 today and to celebrate the occasion, they are having some weekly offers. For the week [24th May 2012 to 30th May 2012], GV Snack Bar is offering a $20 Buddy Combo that consist of 1 popcorn, 1 nachos, 2 cokes, and 2 Ben & Jerry’s Ice-Cream. Well, besides these weekly offers, GV also organised a “surprise” birthday celebration event that indeed caught the public literally by surprise.
Just four days back [on Thursday], we were invited to GV’s surprise birthday celebration. As it was quite a last minute invitation, we did not have our Canon Powershot S100 to take high quality photographs and as such, have no choice but to rely on the iPhone 4S’ 8 Megapixel Camera.
So, how did GV’s surprise birthday celebration went?
To kick off the celebration, 20 movie icons were set out on a mission to find Mr. Popcorn whom is situated at GV Vivocity. However, instead of utilising their usual modes of transportation, the 20 movie icons decided to take the public trains from Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station to HarbourFront MRT Station.
So… the movie icons seem to be rather excited about purchasing their EZ-Link Cards.

All in all, it was really an enjoyable time covering this event with Baby and I believe that this is one event that is unique of its kind. Other than the usual COSPLAY events, this event has got to be the first of its kind, especially in Singapore. We really felt pretty honoured to be invited for this event and that’s the good thing about being a blogger. We more often than not have first hand information about the latest happenings and events before the general public does. So Happy 20th Birthday Golden Village!
Stay tuned for more updates from us!
