Woah, can you just feel the buzz in the air, full of love and excitement for Hari Raya?  We Churpies can’t wait to celebrate Hari Raya,  most of us are already geared up full mode for Raya celebrations!

We would like wish everyone a Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir & Batin. Kami ingin menyusun 10/20/400 jari (ramai sangat kat ofis ni!) meminta maaf sekiranya ada tersalah atau terkasar bahasa.

If you have an open house, we suggest inviting all your friends (We churpies are your friends too, right?) so they can be a part of this glorious celebration and taste all the wonderful Raya food like rendang itik, lemang, kueh-raya and so forth. Share the joy of Hari Raya with everyone for sharing is caring!

For the rest of you, don’t forget to wish your friends Selamat Hari Raya and make this joyous festival even more wonderful than it already is for them. Who knows, your friends may show up at work/class with a balang full of kuih raya goodies!

For those who are going to balik kampung, we’d like to remind you all to please travel safely and be considerate to other road users too:) Semoga selamat sampai ke kampung halaman masing-masing, serta selamat pulang ke rumah anda sekalian.

Lastly, here is special greeting from our fellow Churper to the rest of you who are celebrating this joyous occassion!

Churp Churp Exclusive Screening – Bridesmaids

   Category: Contests, Events, Malaysia |

What’s your idea of an awesome bachelorette party? Who will be on your invite list? What will you wear?! What about THE big night? Will you be having you hair up? or hair down? What about your shoes?!

Everything has to be perfect the way you imagine it in your head; and of course it has to because it is a once in a lifetime experience! But think about it, can you really pull off organizing a smashing bachelorette party (and wedding) of your dreams while exuding the poise and flawless beauty of the perfect image of a bride you have in mind? Well, this is where you have the maid of honour and bridesmaids to come to the rescue! These girls are the pillars of your perfect wedding and they are the ones you’d rely on for almost everything from running the show to probably some pre marital counseling!

You might be thinking we’ve got some wedding bells ringing at Churp Churp, but guys we’ve been going on and on about weddings only because we will be having an exclusive screening of Bridesmaids courtesy of United International Pictures!

Looks to be a fun comedy to catch! Wouldn’t it be fun to watch how these girls fair as bridesmaids?

Synopsis

This spring, Universal Pictures and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) invite you to experience Bridesmaids.  Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.

Annie’s life is a mess.  But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor.  Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals.  With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.

Just take a look at the trailer and you’ll know why we’re excited for the movie!

We sneaked around and found a behind the scenes feature of Bridesmaids too! Who knows, you may just pick up an awesome tip or two for your bachelor/bachelorette party & wedding from this movie!

But seriously though, what do you think are some awesome ideas for a bachelor and bachelorette party?

Buka Puasa #ChurpOut at Mek T!

   Category: Events, Malaysia |

Bulan Ramadhan is coming to an end and we hope you’re having a good month fasting and fulfilling your spiritual needs during this time of the year! Since we are about to enter the final week of the fasting month, we thought it would be a great idea for us to host a cosy iftar event with you Churpers to get to know each other better over some great food. We searched for the perfect place to carry out this occasion and Mek T naturally came to mind!

Bukan McD, Mek T! Mende tu? Mek is synonymous with the “Tranung” slang for Miss (Cik) and T is the one and only Terengganu (or Tranung).  Mek T originates with the search of the nostalgic taste of her beloved kampung. Fused with her passion in perfecting each and every one of her recipes, Mek T is a heritage of flavours of authentic Tranung food.

Mek T is a restaurant serving some of the best Tranung authentic delicacies. From Nasi Dagang to Nasi Ulam and to Laksam….you name it, Mek T has it! Us Churpies have personally put Mek T’s food to the test, let’s just say we couldn’t keep our hands off their awesome keropok lekor and pulut cawan even after our scrumptious Nasi Sedap Sokmo! Don’t keep reading, instead keep viewing to know why us Churpers picked out this place to berbuka puasa!

Mek T is about bringing you the “rasa keaslian” of Terengganu food and here are some of the outstanding food we will makang in Mek T!

From Top Left to Right – Nasi Ulam, Nasi Sedap Sokmo, Nasi Dagang, Laksam, Laksa, Pulut Lepa, Pulut Cawan, Lompat Tikam, Keropok Lekor and Roak Betik!

Mung dok lapo tak? These are just some of the many dishes Mek T offers to its patrons and also what keeps them coming back for more! Aiseh boys and girls, what else could be more delicious to berbuka puasa with? So guys, you’re in for a treat by Mek T this #ChurpOut! Mano mari doh (that means totally worth it)!

We Had A Magical Sunday Afternoon Gathering!

   Category: Behind the Scenes, Events, Highlights |

Hello Churpers!

Last Sunday, we had our first ever community event “Magic, The Churp Churp Gathering” held at Canvass Art Studio and everyone who attended it had a blast! We had the gathering themed towards an artistic direction and had everyone there to color their own Churpies!

To all the Churpers who came down to spend your Sunday with us, the Churp Churp Team sincerely thank you all! We had fun getting to know you face-to-face!

We would like to thank our sponsor, Yeo’s, for providing us with Pink Dolphin Collagen drinks to our Churpers who came for the event!


Pink Dolphin Collagen Drinks from our sponsor, Yeo’s!

First, we started off with some ice breaking games to let everyone know each other better, and then had Matthew kick start the magical illusions!

Afterwhich, our guest Twitterers did their magic thing to wow the crowd. And boy did they know how to do magic tricks! The Churpers also got to win themselves a Churpie and a 2GB Churp Churp Thumbdrive by participating in our tweeting game!

We also had our very own Churpie cupcakes made by Jessica, and they were a hit among the Churpers! They came in flavours of vanilla and butterscotch! And not forgetting, the large painted life sized Churpie for every one to take photos with! Churpie can now be an art icon too! 😛

For more the pictures from Magic, The Churp Churp Gathering, view it here on our Facebook Page!

Have a great one, enjoy!
