Angry Birds Asian Challenge started right from the check-in counter. This meant that every fare-paying passenger were also in for a sweet treat, & this was just the appetizer!
After a short stint in the beautiful city of Helsinki, it was time to embark on a 12-hr flight back to Singapore on Finnair’s Angry Birds flight.
After checking in, an invitation to Finnair’s lounge was extended to privileged passengers, like ME!! While I was clearing the customs to go to the lounge, these Angry Birds were also going through the security.
Now, guess who were waiting for us at the lounge? The Angry Birds, of course!
Tada! Come greet the the main star! Hauska Tavata, Mr Red Bird! That’s “Nice to meet you!” in Finnish, if I remember correctly.
I quickly checked Mr Angry Bird's seat no. OMG, 56D! I got the seat just behind his row!! I was elated, ecstatic to be sitting near Mr Red Bird!!
It was picture time with the plushies!
With me was the cheery Jukka-Pekka, one of the organizers for this event. JP was my first contact. I’d received an int’l call from him, informing me of my fluky win for this trip :) It was awesome!
Let’s go & check out the Angry Birds themed food in the lounge!
Gosh, these ferocious-looking birds were everywhere! Some wines for a start?
How about some greens at the Angry Bird Salad Bar?
Aren’t these serviettes cute?
Even the staff at the lounge was wearing an Angry Bird apron!
Gonna grab myself a burger!
There were also Fried Angry Bird Eggs!
Let’s round up our dinner with some Angry Bird Vanilla Mousse!
Time to relax after a good meal. With me were few of the Angry Birds Asian Challenge team members: (L-R) Bryan, John, Lasse. What do you think of our glow-in-the-dark tees?
Bryan & John were my travel partners in Helsinki. These 2 handsome young chaps took really good care of me during the trip even though I was way above their age. Lol!
Here’s another lovely event organizer. If only I could get hold of her cardigan………
And her hair accessories! These are actually plush clips where you can hook on to your bags etc. How creative!
Well, time to board the plane! Here’s a video of Finnair A340 getting ready for the Angry Birds flight to Singapore for your viewing pleasure before you Come With Me On Board Finnair’s Angry Birds Asian Challenge!
