Wow! It's been a while since I won something like this. "Meet and Eat" (not the usual Meet and Greet, mind you) session with the stars. It was eons ago since I had dinner dates with "stars" like The Rasmus, Wild Orchid, Innuendo, Boyzone, Dave Koz and former teen queen - Tiffany (Yeah...I know, it was long long time ago). Because of this great event, I decided had to forgo the 24-hour challenge even though my chance of getting into the final was high. Wouldn't want to turn up looking like a panda bear for the Gubra event. Must look dashing for the photograph session. Heheh!
I met BW who was also a winner for Hainanese chicken rice at Berjaya Plaza. We lingered around the Movie Carnival - grabbing freebies, posing for photograph with the "stars" (-eg with that masked fella from V for Vendetta, X-Men, Ice Age cartoon characters, Darth Maul, etc). I wonder why no one turned up dressed like Ultraviolet, Mystic from Xmen or Electra. Heheh! That would be nice in my photos collection.
We were presented with a "Gubra" Drawstring Bag. What were inside the bag?
A light brown "Gubra" T Shirt
A "Gubra" Pocket Calendar
A "Gubra" note book
A pair of DiGi car sunshades
Out of many actors who supposed to come, only 4 turned up - Tan Mei Ling (played Jason/ Alan Lee's Nyonya Mother), Juliana Ibrahim (played Kiah) and Alan Yun (played Alan Lee/ Jason's brother) and the leading lady - Sharifah Amani (Orked). I was hoping for Yasmin Ahmad, the director to make a surprise visit but that didn't happen. (insert Sigh here).
