Berry hearts Lemon: The Biggest Ribena Purple Heart Event

ribena top

The heart is the most common symbol for romantic love. It’s always been a dream of many a hopeless romantic to do something extraordinary for their loved ones…fly a plane with a smoke trail that spells your beloved’s name or something to that effect – an over-the-top display of love for all and sunder to see how much you love your loved one.


I have been following Berry and Lemon’s romantic relationship for the past few months, commented on Berry and Lemon’s blog, and participated in the contest. It’s been a wonderful journey – I brought them up to the Cameron Highlands to spend some time…a double date of sorts. I attempted to create the Most Romantic photo with the couple standing in the middle. Little did I know then that I was about to see more! Berry has a few tricks up his sleeves, that’s for sure. πŸ˜‰


I got a chance to see that on Valentine’s Day. I was at Sunway Pyramid and attended the Ribena Purple Heart event. Berry built a HUGE purple heart to profess his love for Lemon. It’s filled with Ribena Lemon bottle caps.


The Ribena Purple Heart event had a lot of games going on – plastic dice throwing, DDR style dance machines and throwing stuff at a target.


Temporary tattoos were all the rage – the people on duty were all inked (stickered?) with “A Perfect Match – Ribena & Lemon”.

Ribena Lemon was on free flow. Well, kinda.


There was a line of people picketing (?) the area, hyping up the huge purple heart event.


Male MC: My hair is styled by the best in Bollywood. I’m kidding. πŸ˜‰ The event kicked off with the two MCs introducing the event and the attempt to create the huge purple heart – how Berry had to walk all over town to collect the purple bottle caps that it’s made of.


Berry and Lemon made a grand entry after that, waving to the cheers of the crowd. I was surprised that they actually could move in that costume.


Berry could even go down on bended knee in that suit, a remarkable feat indeed.


Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough…apparently the huge purple heart wasn’t filled to the brim, so Lemon was less than happy about that.


A quick solicitation from the crowd for Ribena Lemon bottle caps soon resolved that problem though…


…and all was good.


We had a chance to pose with Berry and Lemon…


…before being whisked away to a movie screening, courtesy of the good people at Ribena.


Anyway, the screening is the movie New in Town by RenΓ©e Zellweger. Free hotdogs, popcorn and Ribena Lemon were also provided. I had to eat two coz Tzia forced me to eat hers as well. πŸ™


It was fun and I loved how well the event was organized. I actually enjoy drinking Ribena Lemon, it’s probably the only source of Vitamin C I get, considering I don’t eat fruits. *shrugs*


Bust a move, Berry!

  1. Jade Zheng: It’s not batik la! :p
    It’s a Banana Republic beach shirt. Very laid back and casual one. πŸ™‚
    Myhorng: Yeah, it’s a nice temporary tattoo. I got one at home from the goodie bag. You want? πŸ˜‰
    I am Seikatsu: I’m not sure, not a watch person. I don’t wear watches. :S

  2. Tzia!! H@ll Yeah! She’s so pretty and educated!
    I remembered her on Nuffnang Bloggers Dinner @ The Apartment, Downtown and couple of her photos from someone MSN *grin*
    Btw I just notice that she’s the first gal on your blog that put your photos on her blog as well. Nice gal.
    *greeting from Thailand*

  3. Michael (Mike): Popcorn, hotdogs and Ribena. I can’t complain. πŸ™‚
    VisionMan: You were at the Nuffnang Bloggers Dinner?
    Yeah, Tzia is nice, but she’s not the first. Most of them do, unless they’re not bloggers. πŸ™‚
    You just happened to notice this coz we’re all posting concurrently. =D

  4. I like Ribena but never have the one with lemon. Alot of new drinks also got the lemon element eh. Green tea with lemon, barley with lemon, pepsi with lemon etc…

  5. They don’t have Ribena in the states.. Actually, most of promotional things you post about I’ve never heard of.. Berry and lemon sounds excellent though. The possibilities!

  6. Dude, back in the days, we only get to drink expensive Ribina when we were sick, because they were imported from UK. Unlike the local Sun Valley orange flavered sugar syrup with no nutritional value of what so ever, Mom who was a nurse claimed that was where we get our dose of vitamin C. When we weren’t sick, we get our vitamin C from the good old Mani-Chai. I only bought Ribina once here the the States, Ribina runs at 8USD a bottle.

  7. Yiling: You did! There were bottles in my car during the Ipoh trip. πŸ™‚
    David Chew: It was a fun event. I liked the movie, a bit predictable, but still watchable. πŸ™‚
    tzia: Eh, I thought you looked great in the photo. πŸ™‚
    Trey: Indeed, it’s quite thirst quenching. I had a lot of bottles from doing the contest.
    e: Yeah, I used to love Ribena more than water when I was a kid. I won’t drink plain water at all.
    jessy: Do you have a fear for clowns as well? πŸ™‚
    hitomi: Hmmm….very random, this one. πŸ™‚

  8. Wow, can you imagine how hot those costumes must be? Bet after a few hours the inside smells like an old tennis shoe. I am not a big fan of fruit jucies, but I love pineapple/orange. or red grapefruit Here in western NC, pomegranite is the latest fad, but is way expensive. (7usd per liter) I love the stawberry/banna drinks from Mexico, but they are also costly. Guess I will just drink my lime Kool aid or Sunny-d and take a vitamin pill to get my C (ascorbic acid).

  9. hitomi: What happened?
    tom: LOL! Yeah, I’ve been in one of these suits in Melbourne. It was a campus thing. Promognate (I can’t spell it either) is great, I love the drink as well. I don’t quite like the fruit coz it doesn’t have a lot of flesh in it…kinda like eating seeds.
