Garrett Popcorn finally in Malaysia

Om my gawd! It’s kam-bing. It’s kam-bing I tell ya!

If you know who took this picture, let me know.

So what the fuss about – it’s just popcorn right? Wrong. Believe me, that’s what I thought as well until I just ate 1 of it and by gosh, it’s a popcorn like no other you’ve tasted in Malaysia – nearest place which has this is Singapore. And like my friend said, once you’ve had the Garrett Popcorn, you’ll hesitate ordering cinema popcorn – ever!

It’s hard to describe the popcorn but here are some visually different facts of the Garrett caramel popcorn:

  1. It’s rounder.
  2. Caramelized all round – evenly.
  3. It’s bigger than your normal popcorn.
  4. It’s golden browned all over – well-covered with caramel.

Okay. It really sounds good. But hold your horses.

In Singapore, their Caramel Crisp sells from SGD8 for a small bag. And that bag is smaller than your McDonald’s paper bag. Converted to Malaysian Ringgit, be prepared to pay about RM16-20 per small bag.

But the question on my mind now is, will local cinemas like TGV or GSC or MBG, allow us to bring this into their cinemas?

Or, will one of our local cinemas raise the bar and allow Garrett Popcorn to set up a small kiosk at their concession area for patrons who are willing to spend for this premium oh-so-nommy popcorn?

It’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out. So watch your social media timelines when Garrett Popcorn officially opens! 😀

It all ended at TGV Cinemas with my Tumbo

Last night I got a special invitation to watch how it all ends in Harry Potter’s Deathly Hallows Part 2, thanks to TGV Cinemas. Me and Ariel arrived with just enough time to have had grab a quick bite alas that wasn’t the case. We were circling around and getting lost in the Sunway Pyramid until we stumbled onto a parking. It took us an estimated 20-30 minutes to find a spot.

Which was why, we opted for TGV’s new Tumbo! Okay, the fact is, it was cool, so I had to have it. Besides, Ariel agreed with me so we got it. Hah!

It's 12 inches and taller! I <3 it!

Yes, it is even taller and bigger than my Patlabor figurine! And I bet you, it’s even bigger than your Dark of The Moon: Optimus Prime figurine. Bwahahahahaha!

*cough* Okay. Coming back to the movie. 😛 I noticed the starting just dived straight into it. No fancy openings with super nice typefaces, only the continuation of the story.

It filled a lot of holes in the previous one and because I don’t read the books, I welcomed the twist very much.


I’m no die-hard Potter fan, even if I tried to be I’d still fail miserably. But I can say in comparison of the previous ones, this had an epic battle going on. However, don’t expect a Robin Hood or Troy close-up style fight – I believe there’s only so many ways you can wave the wand.

The special effects were awesome to say the least. And don’t be worried if you snicker in some kissing scenes, because I know I felt the same way. It was just plain odd when it had to happen. Yes, I’m avoiding spoilers for you lot. 😛

In conclusion, it was a classic wrap-up to the Harry Potter series. We didn’t stick after the credits, so do let me know if there was something – we were hungry.

P.S.: If you’re watching with Harinder (@lightyoruichi), make sure he doesn’t shout “Inception!”. ROFL!
