Heineken Green Space

This happened at the end of last month, January 31, 2010.
I've gotta say, this is truly a very unique setting.
A music party on a lazy Sunday morning? Making it like the Saturday mornings you wake up to as a child in the 80s? Jointly brought to you by The Breakfast Club serving you awesome brunch for the whole event? That's creativity for you!

The venue that held this event would be this place:

Public grounds for play. This is at TTDI Plaza smack dab in the center of the shops all around, an open aired space.
Arrived quite early at the event to look around. All I've gotta say is the setup of the place for the event was fabulous. You should've seen the details they've made specially for the event!
Keep in mind that this is having the theme of reliving your childhood Saturdays in the 80s (or whatever era you are as a kid) where you eagerly wake up in the morning to rush down for your morning activities (which most of us would be glued to the tv sets over Saturday morning cartoons over breakfast!)

Take a look at the picture above. They've remade the TV to look like your olden days TV complete with antenna and dial knob and these TVs were all around on table ends playing 80s movies on a DVD/CD player.
This set was playing Back To The Future III. Very retro.

That yellow box on top of the TV set is actually a box of crayons and the green table mat on the table is where you can take the crayons to play join the dots on it. No kidding!

The stage was set for entertainers to present to us but it looks quite a messy setup.

Probably because other decors of the place is all cramped up right here.

There are some chill out lounge places and also some deck chairs put up. The tables at the lounge sofas contains board games on them. They had snakes & ladders, Jenga and others. Very amusing to find those around.

If you love console games then they've got DJ Hero all ready to be played.
Or if you want some exercise the physical kind:

you can play some ping-pong (also known as table tennis).

There's loads of Heineken stocked up at the kiddy pool where they later chill it more with ice thrown on top of it ready for eager drinkers to consume.

The main thing I simply adore the most is the great brunch served.

Mind you the eggs weren't there in the earlier part of the morning. A more healthier choice were produced earlier which was some fruits mainly apples.
As you can see, there's tomatoes, baked beans, toasts (which were bananas earlier), cornflaikes with milk.

Mushrooms, frankfurters, beef sausages and fries and my fave!!! Pig meat. :P
Bacon and pork sausages. I simply love, love, love the bacon.
Never in my life have I eaten so much bacon.

Notice the unique signs that displays what is being served.
Instead of the usual words that tells you what it is, they decided to put up picture signs to tell you what it is instead! For example there's a cow picture for the beef sausages and a picture of tomato for tomatoes and an open can symbolizing tinned canned food for the baked beans.
It's truly a wonderful breakfast. It looks like a hotel buffet. Only thing is this is really delicious.
There's also waffle pancake freshly made for you upon request if you ever want to have one.

Over at the drinks bar, you can have the usual morning favorites which are tea, coffee, and/or orange juice.
you can try out the special concoction Heineken Smoothie which is specially blended using mixtures of banana, cucumbers, Monin

and of course, the other main ingredient:

Heineken beer.
All mixed in a blender with ice and voila it churns out Heineken Smoothie.

I tell you, this is super duper fantabulous!
By afternoon, people were grabbing Heineken beers already (cause Asians don't tend to drink beer in the mornings/afternoons) while I was still going for Heineken Smoothies.

Also, over in the afternoon there were 2 acts performed namely:

Paolo Delfino (if I'm not mistaken) and

Reza Salleh.
Their music was really soothing and turn out to be a great background music accompanying whatever everyone was doing all around. However, I do have to say that Paolo's kazoo was kinda annoying everytime he uses it trying to blend in with his guitar. I really gotta say the kazoo really spoil the nice soothing music.

Overall, this was a lovely event and a really unique one too! Heineken for brunch?
I had the most satisfying breakfast in my whole entire life. That's not all.
Check this out:

This is actually a goody bag! My mom was surprised to find such a nice looking basket in my house when she visited me this Chinese New Year and didn't want me to use it for a picnic I was going to because she say it's too nice!
What's inside are:

some great stuff given. 2 Heineken towels, two bottles of Heineken beer, two sample boxes of Kellogg's cornflakes, a Kellogg's waist measuring tape and two sample bottles of Monin syrup.

I super love the Monin syrup and started using it on all my drinks to spice it up!
I wonder if they sell this at the supermarket? Gonna grab me more of this!

@Kwong Fei
The event is for invited members of the public. I'm lucky to get this because they only gave out 50 pairs of passes.
