Angry Birds Atop Mount Faber!

Dear fans of Angry Birds, the very popular Apple app has won raves from young and old all over the world, and now the Angry Birds have finally arrived in Singapore! 

 Last Friday, Licia and I went to the launch of the Angry Birds cable car ride and it was plenty of fun even though we're not fans of Angry Birds.  :D

These cable cars stood out from the rest because of the bright, cheery colors!

I do think that Singapore Cable Car's effort to combine entertainment and novelty to enhance the riding experience commendable.  Who would have thought Angry Birds can now REALLY been seen in the sky?

The Angry Birds Adventure Atop Mount Faber is the world's first Angry Birds cable car ride! I really think that the kids and family will have a good time!


There are Angry Birds plush companions within the cable car, and the jingle playing in the background. Since the ride from Mount Faber to Harbourfront Station was a short one, we didn't have much time to take that many photos.  Not the mention that the weather was mad humid!

The plush toys do make Angry Birds sounds, I keep playing with them throughout the ride. Hahaha. 

I also spotted a very punny copy.....whuttt. Lol.

Mr Chan Chee Chong, General Manager of Mount Faber Leisure Group (in yellow), Mr Henri Holm, Senior Vice President of Rovio Entertainment (in Angry Bird hoodie!) and Mr. Mike Barclay, CEO of Sentosa Development Corporation (in blue) were there to officially launch the cable car ride. 

Posting this picture solely because I freaking love the confetti effect :D :D :D

We took the opportunity to take pictures with life-size Angry Birds. Hehe.

We also went into the merchandise shop to cool ourselves down and also to play with what's available.  My favorite pic is at the end of this entry! :)

To make it more fun, I suggest you to throw your birthday party there!  Guests will be served Angry Birds themed cupcakes like these:

Three specially designed, fully-wrapped cable car cabins of the birds chasing the green pigs can also be found at Mount Faber (lower deck).

Pardon the condensation on my lens

For children 12 and below, this is also the place where there are creative workshops available such as egg painting, coloring competition and balloon sculpting!

Yes, the balloon is shaped like an Angry Bird!

There were also games stations at The Jewel Box where you can play the latest Angry Birds Space game.  The difference is you get to play them on the BIG screen. Haha

The Angry Birds Adventure Atop Mount Faber will be around from June till December, so you and your family/friends have plenty of time to make your way up there to say hi! :D 

Sorry but I'm still very amused by this kid who cannot seem to find the holes for his eyes! Too cute!

With every ticket purchase ($29 for Adults, $18 for Kids), you'll receive an Angry Bird face mask and a mocktail drink in a collectible cup.

Ultimate fans of Angry Birds can also get the limited edition Angry Birds Jewel Card to enjoy priority queue (quite shiok if a lot of tourists during that time :D) and exclusive promotions.

Top up $5 to play at the Angry Birds Game Booths! I tried a few here:
Toss them colored balls and hopefully they end up in the correct color slots at the bottom. 

Of course I cannot miss the real-life Angry Birds!  It might look simple, but it is 10x harder please!! Licia tried and failed.  Cannot laugh at her, coz' mine ended up with a just stupid flop and didn't even fly. -___- #fail

Making myself a dulanjiao (hahaha sorry vulgar)

After the launch, we went to have lunch Black Opal @ The Jewel Box.   The atmosphere + view was breathtaking. 

Here's what we had, and I'm gonna let the pictures do the talking.

Chargrilled Quail - Greek Salad and Fine Herbs

Pan-roasted Margret of Duck - Fondant Potato (HEAVENLY), Rhubarb Compote and Raspberry Jus
Because we were so full we looked for the toilet and by-gosh! It's an award-winning design toilet!
The high ceiling, sofa bed, fish tank, and waterfall centerpiece...

And most importantly... full-length mirror for camwhoring!   You also get the panoramic view of the harbour.

Thank you Licia! I hope you had fun despite the heat. Heh.

These are the Angry Birds that came home with me:
As you can see I have the whole set of stickers and coasters (can be won from game booths), folder, tattoo and mask.

Super super love the Angry Birds mood calendar. Been wanting this like forever!  Next time I shall  put it on my office/home desk to indicate my mood so that my colleagues/fiance will not be confused with my other kiampa facial expressions.  ^^v

See ya at Singapore Cable Car! :)
