|This wasn't the usual movie marathon but rather a Triathlon.|
To enter the contest, one should send e-mails when one sees a popcorn tumbler on Star Movies. If you are part of the lucky few, you are chosen and invited to the contest. Luckily, I got in.
We were given house rules.The bouncers were a little strict. The no phone rule was enforced all through out (except for than 1 minute given by an emcee after the 4th movie).

We were served all the food and drinks and snacks we wanted.
|I tried getting it all but I just couldn't|
After lunch, an emcee came up and asked us all to stand up and stretch. (YES!) She said we had to do something different. Enter a gym instructor (SHIT!). We were asked to do circuit training. This was where it became a triathlon. Yes, I wasn't able to follow and got dropped out. Being able not to move for around 6 hours was a disaster. Suddenly, they would ask us to do jumping jacks, jog in place, shuffle, and squats. Repeat continuously, then hold. Heck, I was wearing a polo, khaki pants, and dress shoes. It was a difficult experience especially since I wasn't in a sports attire (I had to hold my pants to keep it from falling down). Even some of the smaller guys got out because it was terribly hard.
I was able to endure the 4 movies. I was actually proud. The contestants were also asked to do yoga, treadmills, and stationary bikes. I found out later on that the triathlon ended close to midnight. The winners decided to split the prize all evenly.
BTW, they gave us a loot bag too.
|Yeah the jacket was stretched|
|A generic cellphone capable of dual sim and tv plus a globe sim card.|
|a tote bag|
The loot bag was actually worth the trip. So, I was happy. The cellphone alone costs around 4-5k (according to my CP suki).
