Angry Birds Asian Challenge Press Conference At Singapore Changi Airport

Squawk! Squawk! Well, we’ve come to the final post of my Angry Birds journey. Here’s a tour of our press conference @ S’pore Changi Airport after a 12-hr Angry Birds Asian Challenge flight from Helsinki.

Mr Angry Bird & every one of us in the AB “uniform” were at the center of attention as soon as we stepped out of the plane. Although we were dead tired from the overnite flight, you could see smiles & laughter from our happy faces; everyone was in high spirits.

Upon arrival, the AB team were led to a private reception by Finnair, where more journalists & Angry Birds greeted us.

Can you see what’s on the table? Here’s a close-up!

The table was filled with outlandish #AngryBirds characters! I was instantly drawn into a fairytale land at the sight of these vibrant cupcakes. I felt like a kid wanting to snatch each & every one of these cakes. Bet I wasn’t the only one who felt this way; I could hear chuckles & people snapping pictures of these rainbow treats excitedly.

The friendly waiter looked at me as though I’m a kid deprived of her toys. He sweetly offered me the #cupcakes asking how many I would like. I wanted to say “All, please!”, but I refrained myself shyly & politely asked for two.

Instead, the kind waiter replied, “What about one of each?” like he could read my mind. I hate rejecting alluring offers like these. I jumped at his brilliant suggestion immediately & I was smiling cheekily to myself.

Sadly, someone got to it before me at the speed of a lightning. Before I knew it, the last Red Bird was gone! So I ended up with an incomplete puzzle. Although I was hungry, I resisted the temptation to snack. I wanted to save them for my son since I couldn’t get any AB souvenirs in #Helsinki, & the only t-shirt I’ve got from Rovio is a “S” size.

Soon, the conference started with a speech from the representatives of the AB event, together with Mr Angry Bird.

When the hoo-ha finally ended & it was time for good-byes, none of us wanted to part. Suddenly, Henri (Senior VP of Rovio Asia) popped up & offered to buy the AB team dinner.

We’d drinks at Clarke Quay but I didn’t join them for dinner as it was really getting late. I desperately wanted to get home to my 2 beloved men in the house to relate my effervescent AB moments & to share my goodies with them. My Goodie Bag:

Oh yeah! Here’s something really bizarre. Although the commotion is over, I still smell, see & breathe Angry Birds. I’m falling in love, all over again……
