Resort World Sentosa World Cup Fever Party!
So there you are at home watching the Korean and Argentina game. Argentina is pressing forward and being a nice Asian boy you cross your fingers hoping that the Korean defense will hold up. The pressure is mounting and just as Higuain is about to unleash a shot on goal your Mom robs you of the remote control and switches over KBS to get her fix of Korean Drama.
“Snatch back the remote control!”, your inner voice rages inside of you. But really could you bear to do that to Yo Momma, life-giver, breast-feeder, diaper changer, food-cooker, underwear buyer, toe-nail digger, ear-wax licker… … I didn’t think so.
So you wise up and figure that you should go down to the nearby food court which is screening the games live and leech off it. But guess what, you’re not the only parasite wanting to peek at that teeny LCD TV.
This clutch your head in your two tremblings hands and cry out in despair,”Where can I watch the World Cup!?!”.
Thanks to the guys Resorts World Sentosa and Power 98, you can finally catch the game in its full glory! Happening at the RWS Atrium on 25 June 2010, 8:30pm, you can enjoy the Portugal vs Brazil on a large screen with your pals!
There will be some pre-match party with free-flow drinks and prizes going on and you can try snagging some tickets at either here or here. But really what other incentive do you need to catch this epic match on a big-ass screen with hundreds of other soccer fanatics!
