“Where there is kindness, there is goodness; and where there is goodness, there is magic.”

- Cinderella

When it comes to stepmother, stepsisters, pumpkins or more significantly, the glass shoes, there is none other than the classical Cinderella story that we knew since childhood.

Will Cinderella be able to get her way to the Prince and live happily ever after together this time round?

Wonder no more by joining us at #NNPremiereScreening. Read on to find out how to secure your #MyCinderellaMoment passes!

Cinderella Payoff Poster Msia

Synopsis

CINDERELLA

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother.

CINDERELLA

Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.

CINDERELLA

Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope.

CINDERELLA

Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her.

CINDERELLA

And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul.

CINDERELLA

It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball,

CINDERELLA

raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden).

CINDERELLA

Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice

CINDERELLA

– changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Chappie: I am consciousness, I am alive, I am Chappie.

- Chappie

Imagine owning a robot that can feel and think like a human. It would be cool for having a black sheep around to help you complete tasks that you’re incapable of. However, they will be isolated because they are different from the others.

Find out more about Chappie with #NNPremiereScreening and see how he fights back against the people who wish to take him down! Read on to find out how to secure a pair of passes for #ChappieMovie!

Chappie_Keyart

Synopsis

From the director of District 9 and Elysium comes Chappie, starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, with Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman.

Hugh Jackman stars as Vincent in Columbia Pictures' action-adventure CHAPPIE.

1251623 - Chappie

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy.

NINJA;Jose Pablo Cantillo

Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man.

1251623 - Chappie

But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

1251623 - Chappie

That’s a dangerous idea – and it’s a challenge that will pit Chappie against powerful, destructive forces that would ensure that he is the last of his kind.

Have you ever hesitated at smiling or laughing at a friend’s joke just to avoid any form of criticism of your crooked teeth?

Have you ever been told, “you need to get your teeth fix to look good” by a friend and that ultimately dampens your self-esteem?

If you have experienced the lack of confidence at your beautiful smile, READ ON! We have something in store for you.

Traditionally, nearly all teeth corrections were done using metal brackets and wire tied around your teeth.

Well, this no longer has to be the case now. With the current technology, you can correct your crooked teeth using Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign treatment uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you that are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into placed, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.

Teeth with whitening tray

Want to know the benefits of getting Invisalign treatment? It is:

a)      Virtually Invisible – They are hardly noticeable; it makes you feel comfortable and confident and people may not even be aware of them.

b)      Removable – You are able to remove your aligners when you eat, or to brush and floss or even to attend a formal occasion.

c)       Comfortable – It does not irritate your gums like braces’ brackets can.

d)      Convenient – You do not have to constantly visit your orthodontist for a monthly adjustment because you are able to change your aligner at home once every two weeks.

With all these listed benefits, you are able to go through your daily routine as naturally as possible and not fearing that food remnant will be trapped in between your aligner.

Does the treatment appeal to you now and you can’t wait to experience the transformation done to your teeth?

You will be pleased to know that the maker of the Invisalign system and Nuffnang will be selecting Three (3) Best Blog write ups to experience an Invisalign Treatment worth RM20,000.00 each!
