So as many of you in Singapore might have noticed, outside the main foyer of The Cathay stands a Giant six meter tall Minion! The giant figure is a replica of one of the characters from the hit movie called Despicable Me, which caused an international frenzy over the cute yellow characters known as minions.
In July, the sequel Despicable Me 2 will be hitting theaters and to welcome this highly anticipated sequel, the Cathay Organization has set up a photo contest on instagram with the Giant Minion as the star! Head down to The Cathay from now till 5 July, snap yourself with the minion, instagram it with the hashtags #CathayLifestyle, #DespicableMe2, #The Cathay and #MinionInvasion, tag @CathayLifestyle and Voila! You have just earned yourself a chance to win a pair of tickets to the premiere of Despicable Me 2 on 25 June at The Cathay. If due to the current haze conditions you are planning to lock yourself indoors until 5 July (my country is in smokeland right now), fret not as you can still see the Giant Minion at Cineleisure Orchard from 8 – 28 July, plenty of time for more photo opportunities!
Since its appearance, this adorable and cutesy yellow icon has been charming shoppers and movie-goers alike, I myself included;]
Besides Cathay, Shaw Organization also has some Minion treats to dish out. They are having a Despicable Me marathon in 3D on 29 and 30 June. To welcome the sequel’s release, Shaw will be screening back to back marathons of the first and second installments of the film at Shaw Nex and Shaw Lido on Saturday and Sunday respectively. They also have a special promotion where you can top up an amount to the ticket price to get a free flow of popcorn, a drink and a collectible minion goggle 3D glasses! There’s just so much Minion love going around, it’s making me so despicably HAPPY:)
Meanwhile, I’ll be hanging out at The Cathay to catch Monsters U and also to spot my Minion cardboard and poster friends while waiting for the sequel to be released. Till then, have fun and Papoooyyyyyy:)
