CineSensational Trilogy: The Hunger Games Awaits!

It’s been awhile since something exciting happens to Team SHUTTER. Little do they know that they are going to go through an adventure. And it’s all going to happen in this place named CINELEISURE ORCHARD.

Cineleisure Orchard offers a variety mix of lifestyle retail shopping, casual dinning and leisure activities like karaoke and e-gaming. Not forgetting having 12 movie halls by Cathay Cineplexes. It’s the place where youths and teens hang out and where all the hype is!

Let Team SHUTTER bring you through a mini adventure at Cineleisure Orchard! Why SHUTTER you might ask? Cause both Andy and me love gathering information of interesting happenings around us and share it with everyone out there through Social Media!

As usual, I was shopping around the flea market looking for the cheapest deal and Andy was enjoying some quality Me-time at Macdonalds. Our phone rang and we received the same message almost at the same moment! Looks like it time for another mission! XD

Ohhh, looks like it’s going to be a real interesting mission!

I rushed to meet Andy at the entrance of Cineleisure Orchard. At the moment of meeting up, Andy immediately received the first clue on his mobile. I was anxious to know what’s the clue as I’m very confident of clue solving and love such missions! I can’t wait to know what’s exciting in Cineleisure!

So the first clue is:

” Grab your weapons and health packs. You gonna need them! Complete the “No mercy” and you shall get the next clue! ”

Oh and apparently we only have 30 minutes to complete the “No mercy”. I was thinking in my mind, what could that be?

And so we entered the Cineleisure in which there are 9 stories not including the basement. Where could the first clue possibly mean? Is there a place where we need weapons and health packs?

Andy and I decided to consult the directory as that’s where all the stores are listed! I mean there are like 54 outlets in Cineleisure, we can’t possibly check one by one right? Of course checking the directory will be the fastest way. 😛

So we look through the list of outlets eliminating the retail outlets and whats not. Suddenly Andy exclaimed: ” Ah I get it! The clue must be referring to Left 4 Dead!

And so we headed straight up to level 9 by lift where E2Max is! E2Max is like gamer’s heaven! There Lan games, Xbox 360 and many more. They even have Prize Stage where you can try your skills at the UFO machines! I would say it’s a place with games for all!

And yes, the clue is referring to the first map of Left 4 Dead! We quickly get down to completing the map, not forgetting to mention the few times I accidentally shoot Andy instead of the zombies. Regardless of that, we still managed to completed the map in 30 minutes! The 2nd clue popped up instead of the usual game credits!

I took one look at the 2nd clue and said to Andy that I know where the next place is! We then quickly proceed to level 4, where I believed it’s where we should go next.

So I lead the way to Pocketz located at level 4 of Cineleisure! The clue has a picture of pool balls! This must be the place!

Andy took a look inside at the various group of people enjoying themselves while playing pool. “We need gold coin here meh? Also, where to find Shutter related things here?

Ops! Then almost immediately after Andy’s comments,  another place came into my mind. “Oh! I know where then!! No mistakes this time I promise!” I said.

We then go all the way down to B1 where’s there’s a whole stretch of Capsules Machine! I’m a capsules Machine lover and Cineleisure has got the widest range of capsules machine I’ve see in Singapore! Andy nodded in agreement when he saw the capsules machine and he quickly found the Shutter related machine. It’s a machine that has mini Pentax Cameras models that you can use as a keychain or put on the hotshoe of your camera. $3 for 1 capsule!

I was super excited about this!  I can always spend at least half an hour at the capsules machine looking at the ranges before deciding which one to get. I went to change notes into coins immediately and went to get a capsule out of that particular machine. Hopefully we get the clue at the first turn!

I took the capsule out of the machine and open it up slowly…

And yes! The clue is inside!

Andy and I looked at the clue and was a little confused. Is there a place here that we could “Party like a Rockstar, Shoot like a Sniper, Throw like Jeremy Lin. And be an all rounder”?

We also have to score 120 points and above before we could enter The Hunger games?

Andy pondered for a moment and said he knew where to go.

He lead me to TimeZone at level 4. I get it when I saw the place. With Guitar Hero, Time Crisis, Basketball games in the arcade, it totally fits in with the clue. Plus there’s a dancing games, driving games and many more. Indeed a place where you can be an all rounder!

We bought a Powercard at the counter and went ahead to the games one by one!

I must say I’m not very good at the guitar, should have played the shooting game instead since I’m a marksman. 😛 Andy and me managed to score more then 120 points at the basketball game through cooperation! We then received instructions for us to collect our tickets to The Hunger Games!

We both had fun exploring Cineleisure in the day and accomplished our mission. It’s time for us to enjoy ourselves at the Gala Premiere of The Hunger games!

Team SHUTTER did not forget to snap a photo with the movie poster before watching the movie! XD I must say The Hunger Games is a good movie! Go catch it now! It’s already showing in the cinemas! Of course, no harm spending a day in Cineleisure first before catching the games!

Of course, this is not the end of the adventure of Team SHUTTER… There will be more to come!

Stay Tune!
