Spell Saab

A few weeks back, I got an invite to the premiere of The Huntsman: Winter’s War in Universal Studios Singapore. Not only that, the awesome folks from Resorts World Sentosa told me I would get to meet & greet Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain and Charlize Theron!! Unfortunately, Emily Blunt couldn’t fly out because she’s pregnant and expecting her second child with John Krasinski (a.k.a. Jim from The Office).

Still, I got to shake hands with Hemsworth, Chastain and Theron!!! WHAT?!?! Even until now I can’t believe it. Hollywood stars always seem like mythical creatures. We always hear about them but never see one in real life so actually touching their hands was what I’d imagine touching a unicorn to feel like. Haha!

We flew out Saturday morning after an awesome night out with the band. Jim and I were expecting to sleep the whole 4-hour flight to Singapore but guess what we ended up doing non-stop? We played chess on my iPad. Haha. For 4 hours straight. Ang sakit sa brain.

We checked in to our room at Festive Hotel, which is where Cheats also stayed when we shot our music video for Summer at Resorts World Sentosa. Click here if you haven’t seen our video!!

For our first night there, we had dinner at the amazing Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora where we sat in front of a larger-than-life aquarium. It was a breathtaking dining experience to say the least.

After dinner, we met up with Jim’s ate Mia at this cool al fresco bar called OverEasy along Fullerton Road. No photos to capture the night, unfortunately, except for this blurry one. Haha!

Then we walked to Boat Quay where we had a few more drinks, Tom Yum soup and noodles to cap off the night.

The following day, we went around to Universal Studios before heading back to our hotel to get ready for the premiere.

I never get tired of this place!

While I was busy Snapchatting, Jim took care of taking photos for my blog! Isn’t he perfect??

Jessica Chastain was the first to step onto the red carpet but she was the last one to get to our spot (closest to the entrance of the theater), because she was really trying to grant as many fan photos and autographs. She was followed by Chris Hemsworth who was so handsome (no surprise there) even if he looked like he was dying from the heat in his suit. Charlize was the last to arrive but first to get to our spot although that’s not to say she took her time on the red carpet as well. Her hair looked like it was silky soft and she looked amazing in her white dress.

Then it was time for our group to head backstage for the meet and greet. The Resorts World Sentosa staff called us K.O.L.s short for Key Opinion Leaders, similar to what’s more commonly known here as “influencers.” How flattering, they see me as an influencer?? Sure hope I’m a good influence. LEL.

When it was time to take the photos though, of course I asked Charlize, “Can I stay beside you?” to which she replied, “Of course!” ?

It was an amazing experience, plus we got to see the movie before it officially comes out! It comes out in Manila April 13. Here’s the trailer for The Huntsman Winter’s War:

I have to say I didn’t expect much from the movie since I didn’t like Snow White and The Huntsman except for Charlize Theron’s role. But I actually had fun watching it! I don’t know why most online reviews aren’t so nice. Of course, the accents are ridiculously off, the plot is predictable, but somehow I found it fun enough. Although, I may have been heavily swayed by the theater’s amazing surround sound — something that makes a world’s difference when watching a movie, for me at least. Doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge fan of the four lead actors.

JUST LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY

If you’re looking for something light, fun but not exactly life-changing, I think you’d enjoy the movie!

Jim and I wanted to grab a few drinks before we went to bed but as the movie started later than intended, most restaurants were already closed by the time the movie ended. So we ordered some beers and laksa via room service and watched Adventure Time while packing for our flight the next day. What a great impromptu weekend.

Thanks again to Resorts World Sentosa for having us!

♥,
Saab

    I was actually stalking your Snapchat during this day! Especially love the ones where the actors arrive. What a memorable experience!! The chances of me even being in the same room with a Hollywood actor is so low, lol.
