So guess what I’ve been up to during Mid-Autumn Festival? I went for HyppTV First Ever Mid-Autumn Tanglung Movie Fest Outdoor Screening at Setia City Park. Being a movie buff, this event was definitely something I had in mind to attend! Opened to all HyppTV subscribers and members of the public, the event started as early as 11.00 am and ends at 12.00 midnight.
The outdoor movie screening features a collection of popular Chinese and Korean movies from channels on HyppTV – SCM HD, SCML HD, now Baogu HD, TVN Movies HD and Red By HBO HD. There were five (5) blockbuster titles showcased namely Forbidden City Cop from SCML, See You Tomorrow from Red by HBO, Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen from SCM, Cold War 2 from now Baogu, and Fabricated City from TVN Movies. I was there to catch some of the movies at 7pm at night *wink*
The event opened with a bang by a special drum performance from 24 Festive Season Drummers together with management from HyppTV.
Followed by the beautifully lighted largest lantern sculpture made with recycled materials that was built by HyppTV.
Throngs of people were there to grab themselves a good seat and kick back to enjoy the array of performance schedule for the night. We had special performances by local artists such as FS (Fuying & Sam) and Bell Yu Tian.
Apart from the movie screening, there are games, shopping, food, snacks and beverages booths setup at the park. I had so much fun participating in the carnival-type activities. Adults and kids alike were spotted having fun at the lantern making workshop, colouring contest for kids, traditional tai chi martial arts and many more.
A movie screening is never complete without some snacks. I redeem popcorns, candy cottons, and soft serve ice cream. There are also food trucks set up around the area, thus it was great to grab n-go!
At the event, I stopped by HyppTV’s booth to learn about the five (5) channels featured in the mid-autumn screening such as Baogu HD (HyppTV Ch 225), SCM HD (HyppTV Ch 228), SCML HD (HyppTV Ch 226), Red By HBO HD (HyppTV Ch 227) and TVN Movies HD (HyppTV Ch 222).
