Churp Churp Exclusive Screening – Safe House

   Category: Contests, Events, Malaysia |

Have you ever wondered if there’s any place in this world which is completely safe and impenetrable – protecting you from all the big, bad things in the world? What if you found such a place… but your enemies managed to hunt you down anyway? We couldn’t help pondering about our safety what we would do in such a situation and this time, we have lined up an exclusive screening for the latest offering from United International Pictures – Safe House!

Like the feeling of adrenaline gushing through your veins? Then this movie is just right for you! Starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, we can tell that the movie is going to be filled with action and explosions.

 Synopsis: Oscar® winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in the action-thriller “Safe House.” Washington plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run.  When the South African safe house he’s remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.


For the past year, Matt Weston has been frustrated by his inactive, backwater post in Cape Town. A “housekeeper” who aspires to be a full-fledged agent, the loyal company man has been waiting for an opportunity to prove himself. When the first and only occupant he’s had proven to be the most dangerous man he’s ever met, Weston readies for duty.

 Tobin Frost has eluded capture for almost a decade. One of the best ops men that the CIA’s known, the ex-intelligence officer has given up assets and sold military intel to anyone with cash since he turned. From trading secrets to North Korea to aiding splinter cells, the damage he’s done to the U.S. is immeasurable. And he’s now back on the reservation with a secret.
As soon as Frost is brought in for debriefing, mercenaries come and tear apart Weston’s safe house. Barely escaping, the unlikely partners must discover if their attackers have been sent by terrorists or someone on the inside who will kill anyone standing in the way. Now it’s up to Weston to figure out who he can trust before they’re both eliminated from the game. 

Well, video speak better in expressing visuals, isn’t it? Do allow the trailer below to capture your attention!

Happy Chinese New Year!

   Category: Highlights, Malaysia |

The Year of the Rabbit is ending very soon, and Churpie is getting really excited about ushering in the Year of the Dragon this Chinese New Year! In fact, Churpie’s so excited about Chinese New Year that it dressed up as its idol Bruce Lee (yes, Churpie is feisty like that!) to celebrate:

Awwww. Churpie looks absolutely dashing in red!

Chinese New Year is the time for everyone to return to their nests… er, homes and reunite with their loved ones! Do remember to spend some time with your loved ones this time of the year, be it indulging in festive cookies and delicacies, playing games, cracking jokes, or simply catching up with each other. For those of you who are driving back home, drive safe and have short breaks in between your journey if you’re tired!

Before the year of Dragon comes roaring in, Churpie and all of us at Churp Churp would like to wish every one of you Churpers a very prosperous and auspicious Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Holidays.

Got a Chinese New Year greeting to Churpers out there? Tweet to us (@Churp2) your greetings and we will retweet it to share the love with Churpers this Chinese New Year!

Gong Xi Fa Chai!



Churp Churp Exclusive Screening – Chronicle

   Category: Contests, Events, Malaysia |

Life is pretty mundane at times when it is just filled with boring, daily chores we reluctantly do everyday, isn’t it? Don’t we wish we could make it easier with a dash of super power in our hands? How about lifting objects without using any physical force? Or forget the fear of being hurt while you can be invulnerable to any attacks?

Don’t bother with the what-ifs that’s buzzing in your head or what you’re going to accomplish. Instead, you can get an idea on what you can accomplish/do when you possess super power through the movie – Chronicle! Yep, that’s our next movie screening for the month. We can tell from the movie poster that it’s going to be a hybrid of fantasy and adventurous journey throughout this movie, guys!

Synopsis: New technologies and social communities allow us to record, post and comment on every second of our lives, sharing our every emotion and opinion with the world, no matter how mundane.

For three high school classmates who suddenly gain superpowers from a mysterious substance, the chronicle of their ordinary lives is about to take on extraordinary turn.

Initially they use their powers to play innocent pranks on each other and people around them, but soon they gain confidence and learn to control their powers better to take on more difficult tasks. 

Their newfound sense of immortality and impunity will force them to evaluate their own morality to ultimately decide where to draw the line about how far they should go. 

We hear you saying, “Awesome!” so do check out their official trailer below to get a gist of the movie!

Stand a chance to be one of the 20 lucky Churpers to win a pair tickets to these exclusive screening and be among the firsts to catch Chronicle prior to its official release date all thanks to Twentieth Century Fox!

Visiting elephants, BRB

   Category: Highlights |

To our beloved Churpers,

We’re really sorry to have to say this but it seems that we’ll be gone soon.

Wait, what were you thinking? No, we’re not depressed. Quite the contrary. In fact, we’re super happy! After a year of working hard, all of us Churpies and Nuffies are taking a well-deserved break from our regular schedule. Yes, it’s the eagerly awaited annual company trip!

And thanks to our bosses Tim and Ming (woohooo!), we’ll be heading up to… the beautiful city of Chiang Mai, Thailand from 10-13 January 2012! 😀

Along with the Singapore Churpies and Nuffies, we’ll be experiencing the beauty of Chiang Mai, with its culturally significant architecture. We can’t imagine a better place to have a bonding and team building session with our fellow Churpies. Did we also mention that Chiang Mai is also well known for its elephants? We have no idea yet what’s in store, but we hope that elephant riding will be part of the itinerary. *TRUMPETS!*

Don’t worry though, our office will still be open all this week, so feel free to drop by if you need to be collecting anything from us. =)

We’ll miss you guys, see you soon when we get back! Have a great week ahead Churpers!

Let’s cruise down memory lane of 2011 to highlight what we’ve been through last year, shall we Churpers?

of Facelifts & Revamps

The Churp Churp site has undergone 2 major revamps last year, first in August and then in early December. We’ve gone towards a cleaner look as the months past and introduced some awesome new features that got us even more addicted to the site. Besides sharing awesome brand messages, you can now share your stories from all over the internet at our ‘Read our Story’ section and discover awesome stories there too!

Our features updates are always inspired by the way you use our site and we evolve to suit your needs and to enhance your Churping experience. We welcome your feedback of our website at our helpdesk to help us improve continuously so do drop us a note at (http://help.ChurpChurp.com) should you have a suggestion.

 

of Contests & Giveaways

2011 was a treat for those who actively participated in all our contests. We had all sorts of contests, from winning latest gadgets to gaining exclusive invites to parties and winning unexpected gifts you’ll love. We had 15 of these contests going on and gave out prizes totalling up to RM30,000 last year! That’s more than a contest happening each month so do check out our site for more of these contests!

Some notable ones were our Churp Churp Great Race where we gave away goodies like the  iPad 2 & Canon DSLR EOS 550 D and the Churp Churp Christmas giveaway recently where winners walked away with a variety of gifts including Famous Amos hampers, iPod Shuffle, Taboo Game Sets and an iPhone 4S!!

 

of Events & Parties

We had our second Churp Churp event this year in April where a bunch of us went for a healthy badminton session. Since then, we’ve decided to organize more events and parties for you. The #ChurpOut sessions are medium sized gatherings that we first introduced in July and have since had 2 more because it was so much fun!

Does Mark’s Place, Mek-T & Chatime Publika ring a bell? We’re always on the look out for cool hang out spots to hold our #ChurpOut sessions, so do suggest to us if you have any!

Besides the #ChurpOut sessions, we partied with Taio Cruz and other local celebrities at Arthur’s Day, went to the Green Room, found out Where the Party was, partied at MTV World Stage 2011 and so much more!

 

of Movements & Giving Back

While we had plenty of events and activities going on in the community, this year we have participated actively in social causes and movements that we hold closely to our hearts.

We were social media partners for campaigns like the Women:100 and thextramilerun. Amongst all partnership with organizations, TLC Rumah Aman campaign was the most notable one last year. We sold hundreds of Churpie Plushies and gathered donations from the community, totalling up to RM7,000 in a month!

 

We were also a proud partner in the record breaking largest gathering of twitterers in October Tweet Fest! There were over 2,000 twitter addicts present at the event, check out this video by gregsvideo.com on it!

 

of Popcorn Munching Moments

Exclusive premier screenings are what we have been actively doing from April. We had 19 screenings in 2011 and gave away more than 1,750 movie tickets!

We hoped you have joined us for at least one of the premiers we had last year. There will be more coming up this year so stay tuned for it.

That’s all from us right now, we hope you enjoyed our little cruise back in 2011. 2012 is going to be a great year and we just can’t wait to get it started!  Happy New Year, Churpers!
