[W] for Wongfu

I can't believe I didn't blogged about this... Last Friday, I attended the best event ever.. after my birthday, of course.. the Everything Before Us Movie Tour by WongFu Productions..

Everything Before Us is a movie made by Wong Fu Productions 

The movie was not available in cinemas, so you could only stream it online... Then... they had a tour!!

And they had a stop in Malaysia!!! And.. It is super near me!!! So, how could I say no?? I purchased my tickets right after it was open for sale.. Yea, typical kiasu-ness..

So, in case you didn't know about the movie.. Here's the trailer..

And in case you need more.. I shall copy and paste the description of the movie..
In the near future, all romantic relationships are overseen by the D.E.I. – The Department Of Emotional Integrity. Much like a credit score is given to represent financial responsibility, a 'relationship score' is given to keep people accountable for their romantic activity and choices. The score is public for all to see and affects various aspects of daily life.
Ben and Sara, a former couple in their early 30s, must meet again to settle a conflicting score and reconcile the reasons their relationship fell apart. Seth and Haley decide to enter their first registered relationship together after just graduating high school. With bright eyes, innocent hearts, and a naive view of what love could be, they face a long distance relationship for the first time. The two couples face different but intersecting challenges in love amidst the DEI rules.
'Everything Before Us' is the first feature film from Wong Fu Productions.
Founded by Wesley Chan, Ted Fu, and Philip Wang, Wong Fu Productions is primarily known for their YouTube channel where they create short films, sketches, music videos and vlogs for their amazing fanbase of supporters from around the world. Since starting in their dorm rooms 10 years ago, Wong Fu Productions has grown to over 2 million subscribers and over 300 million views.

They came to Malaysia to screen their movie.. I'm not really a fan of cinemas but it's a WongFu movie.. so i am a bigger fan of wongfu than I am not a fan of cinemas.. so wongfu won.. haha

While I was at the event.. I would certainly want to get my hands on the awkward animals but unfortunately  there was a limited number for the stocks they have brought over since they were touring Asia so I guess they had to limit the numbers per country so that everybody have a chance to get them.. I was eyeing the awkward fox and awkward giraffe.. Too bad the awkward fox was sold out when it was my turn.. we had to queue to buy.. But luckily there was one more awkward giraffe left and I got the last one!!! Yay!!

Here is how the awkward fox looks like..

Buying it online is too expensive as RM is dropping like rain.. So, i guess this will have to wait till next time..

Good thing I managed to get the awkward giraffe, that looks like this..

The picture on the website is cuter.. hahaha.. the neck is bendable.. so it might sometimes look like this..
Here am I with the giraffe

The event began with the screening of the movie and then a Q&A session..

Oh yes, there was a selfie session before the event.. which explains why I was late to queue for their merchandise and missed the awkward fox..

and to fulfill my inner wongfu fan girl.. I got the Wongfu lankyard too!
The picture in the website is nicer than the one i took of mine so i'll just use the picture from the website.. You may check out the website if you are interested..

Before I end, I would like to thank the extra guy in the selfie picture.. Thank you so much for accompanying me to the event.. Although I would usually go alone if there's no one with me but I really appreciate you coming with me and thanks for the giraffe and lankyard.. these are my best Christmas present of the year!! I know my interests are a bit different from my friends around me which explains why I usually have to go attend events and concerts alone.. I am glad that I have another person to be tagged along now.. Thanks!

And, that's all for now...
Signing off.. (I almost typed singing off.. haha)
