BRAND’S ® GAME ON Kick Off Party

Media Invite & Contest Giveaway

Football is never a solo game, from players to fans, it is always better to be in a team. Credit to BRAND’s ® for organizing this great event, bringing different groups of friends together with one common interest – World Cup 2014. We were gathered to watch the opening game of World Cup 2014 Group B’s Spain vs Netherlands.

This was dubbed as the repeat of 2010 World Cup Final, where Spain won 1-0 against Netherlands and lifted the Cup for the first time in history.

This event just marks the beginning of BRAND’S ® GAME ON, and as the football season progresses, BRAND’S ® will be there for every football fan and non-fan to keep him or her going beyond the games!

So this is my team of football buddies!! One Netherlands supporter and 3 Spain supporters, you should see how Bernard jumped up from his couch when Netherlands scored their 3rd goal.

Plenty of food and drinks were prepared for everyone to ensure we enjoy the game as much as possible.

Since the event was sponsored by BRAND’S ® we had a BRAND’S ® “yum seng” right before the party.


Got picked by the MCs to go on stage to play a small game. Can see that I was quite dazed from the lack of sleep right? Guess, I should drink more Chicken Essence.

The game was to use the measuring tape and deliver the ping-pong ball onto the empty bottles. Three different distances to complete (40cm, 80cm, 120cm). It looked easy but was super difficult!

Thankfully, my competitor was slightly slower than me and I won it by a whisker.

For a Liverpool fan, to see Torres coming on for Spain and to witness his lousy performance, I was secretly rejoicing. Hahaha..

By the way, check out the 100-inch screen! If every match can be watched here, that would be perfect!


At the party, we were introduced to some special drinks.
Fizziotherapy / Halftime Breezer / Game Changer
All three specially crafted using BRAND’S ® product. Truth be told, the taste was good!

Thanks also to the wonderful PR group who prepared hard for this successful event.

Though only the Netherlands supporters went home victorious, but everyone gets a cool goodie bag full of BRAND’S ® products.
