2013 in 12 AWESOME Months!

   Category: Highlights |

Hello Churpers,

It’s that time of the year again to reflect and reminisce the good times of 2013. We think it has been one REMARKABLE year growing with you!

No amount of contests, Churpremieres, events, could ever be made possible without your never-ending support.  Thank you for making 2013 a success for ChurpChurp!

Let’s kick start this re-cap with a walk down memory lane, featuring the highlights of ChurpChurp Malaysia in 2013.

1. What other way is there to start the year 2013 than with the super viral Harlem Shake? That’s right, Churpies and Nuffies alike all joined in the craze and danced up a storm!

2. #CNYChurpOut was our very first CNY gathering held at Vault Wine Bistro. Remember our most epic lousang ever with over 70 of you guys? Good times!

3. In March, we heard, we listened and so we released the all new ChurpChurp iOS app live on the App Store to make it easier for our Churpers to share their awesome ChurpChurp campaigns and stories on-the-go!

4. You have seen our fun and crazy side, but have you seen our cute side yet? We uploaded another viral video on April and this time it’s the Churpie version of Gwiyomi!

5. ChurpChurp introduced a new feature called Snapshare where by Churpers were rewarded for their photos on Instagram! Our first ever Snapshare campaign was for GUINNESS #MadeofMore and a total of RM5,000 were rewarded to the community!

6. Pew Pew Pew. What are those sounds we’re hearing? It must be from the #ChurpPewPew event we had at the end of May where 60 Churpers got a chance to become Galactic Laser superheroes for a bit!

7. We celebrated Hari Raya in style this year with #ChurpOutBukaPuasa at Bijan Restaurant where 80 Churpers were treated to a night of food, entertainment and games!

8. If you’ve been with ChurpChurp these couple of months then you must have heard or at least read about Churp Live & Loud! We introduced our very first Churp L&L campaign in August with Astro in conjuction with Merdeka where 30 Churpers had fun playing games, making new friends, and most importantly, getting rewarded with RM100 for their live updates!

9. #TheNewChurp2 was released to the public in September and everyone got to experience the all-new exciting ChurpChurp.com! To commemorate this event, we gave out 70 Churpie plushies to our Churpers who told us what their favourite feature was!

10. And how can we even forget about the most awesome event of the year, #ChurpOut2013? With over 4,000 participants, 2,000 Instagram photos, 2,500 tweets (trended on Twitter) and an event that went from 11.00AM till 11.00PM, it was definitely our BIGGEST #ChurpOut yet!

11. In honour of Halloween, we collaborated with Golden Screen Cinemas to bring you the eeriest event of the year: #GSCHorrorFest. For 7 hours, 300 brave Churpers braced themselves for 3 spooktacular movies in a row!

12. And, we ended the year with three sessions of #ChurpChristmas Tour to show off our Memeland inspired Christmas Deco in the Orange office as well as to provide our Churpers an insight of our awesome lives here in ChurpChurp!

So that wraps up our 2013 for ChurpChurp Malaysia! We hope you enjoyed every moment of it as much as we did! All we have to say is … 2014 is going to be so much better and we can’t wait to share our plans for it with you!

With lots of love,
The ChurpChurp Team

#Churpremiere – The Legend of Hercules

   Category: Churpremiere |

God. Man. Hero.

We know of Hercules, the man with awe-inspiring superhuman strength. But, what else do we know of Hercules, son of Zeus? With the Legend of Hercules,  find out the true origins of Hercules, how his life was filled with betrayal, love and his quest to overthrow the tyrannical rule of a cruel king and restore peace to a land of hardship. This #Churpremiere will surely shine some light onto this very popular Greek mythology.

So, don’t miss out this action-packed #Churpremiere of The Legend of Hercules.

Movie Sypnosis: In the origin story of Hercules, the heroic son of Zeus embraces his incredible destiny by fighting to reclaim his kingdom from his villainous stepfather in this sweeping mythological adventure from director Renny Harlin.

Born half-man/half-god and imbued with awe-inspiring superhuman strength, Hercules (Kellan Lutz) falls into a forbidden romance that quickly incurs the wrath of his calculating stepfather, the King. 

Subsequently exiled and forced into slavery, the heroic Hercules fights for his life as a gladiator, and vows to free his people from the tyranny of the evil monarch.

#Churpremiere – Walking With Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie

   Category: Churpremiere |

Dinosaurs.

We’ve heard stories of dinosaurs since we were kids. Stories of how gentle and majestic a long-neck dinosaur can be, to how frightening a T-Rex is! We’ve probably seen some dinosaur fossils in museums and even had dinosaur toys to play with.

But what if you’re given the opportunity to see an actual dinosaur, up-close and personal? Are you up for the challenge to see how dinosaurs lived and ruled the Earth 70 million years ago?

If your answer is yes, then get ready to embark on the most epic prehistoric adventure as we travel back in time at the #Churpremiere of Walking With Dinosaurs: The Movie!

 Synopsis: WALKING WITH DINOSAURS: THE 3D MOVIE is the most ambitious film to feature photo-real dinosaurs set in real live action landscapes, immersing audiences in an amazing prehistoric age. The emotional story at the heart of this film is of epic proportions and one that we can all relate to: a story of families born and families torn apart, of growing up, of rivalry and competition – and the relentless struggle to survive. 

The story is set 70 million years ago in Alaska, high in the Arctic. Each year, the long dark winters – three months of perpetual darkness and violent snow storms – drive the dinosaurs southwards in their thousands on a great annual migration. Amongst the spectacle, we travel with Patchi, a strange but endearing Pachyrhinosaurus with a large frill and horns. 

From the moment he is born as the smallest hatchling, Patchi must survive competitive brothers and sisters, a wild and unpredictable world and fierce predators like the wily Troodon and monstrous Gorgosaurus. Witness to the devastating death of his father at the teeth of a Gorgosaurus, Patchi teams up with his brother Scowler and female friend Juniper. 

They muddle along with the great migration in a series of hair-raising but humorous adventures until finally they reach the wintering grounds and are reunited with their families. But Patchi is separated from his sweetheart Juniper, who he does not meet again till adulthood. By now she has paired up with Patchi’s older brother Scowler, who becomes his greatest rival.

Patchi, even as an adult, remains the smallest; the underdog, alone on the fringes of the herd.  But on the migration back to the nesting grounds he proves himself through courage and a collaborative nature and the females begin to follow him, which only intensifies the rivalry with his bigger brother. In a climactic finale, he rescues his reckless rival from a Gorgosaurus pack and wins recognition as the most deserving leader of the herd and admiration from Juniper. He was never the largest or toughest dinosaur but he’s shown that survival of the fittest can mean far more than just being the biggest or strongest.   

Here’s a sneak peek of the underdog dinosaur triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages:
