So how the hell did I know about Flight of the Conchords? All thanks to HBO for taking their first step to reaching out to the new kind of media (Social Media?), I shall call it the blogger-dia. Hmmm... moving on... This is one of the more exciting blogger event I'd attended. We got to check out HBO office!! How cool is that?! And Weirdly, Jermaine reminds me of a blogger leh!

Are you the Hiphopopotamus or the Rhymenoceros? Have you seen a camera-phone that’s literally a camera-phone? Do you love hiphop, rap, rock and New Zealand geeks? Than you MUST watch Flight of the Conchords on HBO (Channel 60 on StarHub Cable) starting this Wednesday, 3 September!

Jermaine is sooooo cute lah! Not in the *ahem*oh-so-cute-guy*cough* kind of cute. Jermaine’s the wah-so-funny-lah kind of cute. Got it? Weirdly, Jermaine reminds me of a blogger leh! Thinks NTT!!!

This is one of the more exciting blogger event I’d attended. We got to check out HBO office!! How cool is that?!


Reception corner for that night

The office is spacious and very colorful! Love it! It was the kind of environment that I’d hope to work in, but don’t think I’ll ever get to work at such cool office lah. Having chance to tour around is already very cool!

Than we arrived at this super cool room! I presume its HBO’s recreation room. And its equipped with super systems and projector! This is also where the HBO crews gather every last Thursday (if I’d remembered correctly) of the month to watch the latest HBO show! So cool lah!


MTV of Flight of the Conchords was playing on the wall

Very nice right?? Love the vibrancy and warmth in the room! And the heart shaped cushion!! Some of us were tempted to sneak one home! Sadly, none of our bag was big enough! LOL!!

There were hotdog buns like the one below all around the office and room. And everyone of us got to bring one home that night too! If you want to know how this hotdog bun is related to Flight of the Conchords, well, go catch the show! Answer will be revealed in Episode 2! ^_^


Hotdogs anyone?

Before the show, we were split into smaller groups for a tour around the office. We got to see the many interesting work and editing rooms at HBO. And wow I was impressed! Especially the sound editing demo by Boris. And the broadcast studio where one man controls the entire broadcast of shows on HBO channels! That room is “WOW!” During the tour, Jerrick had a few seconds of fame in the filming room and in the recording room! “Ahhhhhh!” >_<

After the tour, everyone gathered back to the cosy room, where yummy New Zealand food and drinks was waiting for us! Drool baby drool!!!

And my favorite from that night…

Tuna with celery roll! (I NEVER eat celery but I love this!)

There were so much food! The above are just some of those I managed to capture before anyone started grabbing them! HBO pampered us too much liao lah! And the lady boss from the catering cafe kept replenishing the food! No wonder it doesn’t seem to finish! *slurps*

Ok… when everyone has filled their tummy, it was time to fill our mind with good music-comedy – Flight of the Conchords!


Everyone gathered and seated comfortably

We watched Episode 2 and 3 of Flight of The Conchords, each lasting 30-minutes. Everyone was laughing and enjoying the show! We didn’t want to leave after both episodes ended! We wanted more more more!!!

Me, the Ugly Betty fan, even missed the first episode of Season 2 that night because of FOTC! Waaaaa!!!

The night ended with us doing what we do best… camwhoring!

Yap! We love the hotdog bun a lot! Hahaha! Everyone received a goodie bag from HBO. And the coolest thing inside?


Flight of the Conchords Soundtrack!!!


I’ve been listening to Jermaine and Bret sing for 2 days already!


I’m now a fan! FOTC rocks!!!

My favorite songs from the soundtrack…

I like to move and shake like Bret with this song! *shakes*

Ops!! I just realised I didn’t share much about the show itself! This is what happened when you squeeze 3 posts together in one night. Youth.sg has got a great write-up on FOTC. Go check it out!
