Disney’s Brave coming soon in Singapore Cinemas from 8 August onwards

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

“Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages.

Can’t wait for to see how Merida enjoy her adventures & her bravery to save her loved ones. Remember The film opens in Singapore theaters on 8 August 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Yes, it’s Green Lantern, if you do read superhero comics.

Anyway, since this event was held at The Singapore Food Trail, of course, I must intro to what was on the food menu!

Drinks – Sugar cane juice (serve in plastic cups or mugs in the olden days in around 1960s)

Here’s my lunch – Ang Mo Kio Yong Heng Fried Baby Squid Hokkien Mee 麵建福仔東蘇炒興永桥茂宏, Satay from Alhambra Satay Club, Fried Carrot Cake from Changi Village Mei Xiang stall ( but it was well camourflage by the food), Chicken meat from Bugis Street Ah Huat Hainanese Chicken Rice 白沙浮阿发海南鸡饭, and satay beehoon from Old Airport Road stall there. 

Rojak (Youtiao with pineapple & special sauce) and meatball soup from Bedok stall there, bak kut teh from Sin Ming Road Rong Chen Bak Kut Teh 新明路榕城肉骨茶, fried oysters from Katong Keah and Chinatown Ann Chin popiah (the view was blocked by the pots).

So people do not need to purposely travel all over Singapore (from Changi Village to Bedok to Ang Mo Kio) just to have good food. Just come to Singapore Flyer – The Singapore Food Trail and you can enjoy a variety of nice tasting food at 1 place. 

Well, I am looking forward for the 6th Singapore Blog Awards next year! See ya!
