Hello Xanderettes! Now that "3 Peas In A Pod" has finished it's run in Singapore, it will soon be opening in theatres in Malaysia in January. You might ask, where will it open next? Will it open in my country? The answer is still uncertain. Unfortunately, tweeting 3 Peas In A Pod, Left Profile, Michelle Chong, Alexander etc. on Twitter does not help much in the process of getting the film to be screened in your country.
How it works is this: A distribution company will buy the rights to screen a film in a country, and it is always a risk because it isn't certain how much money a film will make AKA will many people pay to watch the movie in cinemas? Every one is a risk, and so is 3 Peas In A Pod. The reality is that 3 Peas In A Pod does not have amazing credentials nor do they have globally well-known and recognised actors or director/producers, especially among the people who do not take interest in the Korean wave or Mandopop etc. There was also not enough buzz generated for the film beyond that of amongst Alexander, Calvin and Michelle's fans and followers. Hence, it is unlikely that the film will be picked up by distributors outside Singapore & Malaysian territories easily.
What we can do: Not all hope is lost! If you are able to successfully convince a distributor in your country that 3 Peas In A Pod is in demand and that many people will go to watch it in the cinema, you might just be able to have the movie screened in your country!
All you have to do is to create buzz for this movie in your country! How? Send an email, call to inquire at your local distributors about the film, whether it will be screened soon, tweet, set up a Facebook page, i.e. "3 Peas In A Pod for the Philippines", endless things you could try. Create buzz and attract the distributors to see and show them that 3 Peas is a film worth taking a risk for.
If you need help in spreading the word or creating awareness or is unsure what to do, feel free to email us at email@example.com or you can also leave a comment below, or even tweet us. We'll be glad to help you out! :)

Former U-Kiss member Alexander (25) has now become a University freshman student.
Alexander was accepted to Korea University's School of Media & Communication late last month. The Hong Kong born Alexander decided to continue his studies after having had to postpone them due to his past activities with U-Kiss. He received his acceptance through the special admission for foreigners in Korea University.
Alexander's "father is from Hong Kong and mother is from Korea. As many of my family members from my mother's side graduated from Korea University, I knew a lot of information about the school beforehand. I'm very happy to have been accepted there." he revealed.
Hi Xanderettes~ Amidst our excitement and fun we had with Alexander and the 3 Peas In A Pod team this past week, the Philippines on the other hand, had to deal with the after effects of being hit by Typhoon Yolanda, one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded, on November 8th. Our friends, the Pinay Xanderettes in the Philippines, have decided to scrap all projects for Alexander and is instead working on a Typhoon Relief project. Although it is incredibly rushed and there is hardly time to spread the word around, we are still going to support this project and we hope that you will too. Please read on to see how YOU can help.
Alexander will be attending the K-Nation 4 event in Manila on the 17th of November, and this very event will be accepting item donations for the Typhoon Relief project. Here are the following items they are accepting:
How will we be doing this?
- We will be collecting monetary donations from people and then sending them to the Pinay Xanderettes, who will use the money to BUY items in the list above on the 16th. The items bought will be given to the organiser at the event on the 17th.
For now, we are rushing to meet the dateline of Saturday, 16th November, 12NN (GMT +8)
We apologise for the really rushed dateline, but we will most likely be supporting a separate longer term project after this one, so if you can't make it for this round, you can still participate in the next.
Why should you join this project? Firstly, if you are able to read this right now, do you know how fortunate you are? The Philippines has yet to recover from not one, but TWO natural disasters in the past 2 months, and now they have been hit by a third one, which is one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded, devastating the country and affecting more than 11 million people, with a rising death toll and access remains a problem.
We believe that each and every one of us is able to give, whether it be $1, or $2 or if we can afford it, more. Eating something cheaper, or buying one less Gongcha, etc. all these are little things that don't have a massive difference in our lives. But the same amount of money used for those things can buy bread, blankets, medicine, etc. which could save someone's life. Think about it. If you can read this, if you can tweet, you can update your Facebook, you have a roof over your heads, you have a school to attend, you can watch 3 Peas In A Pod twice......... you can afford it, all you need to do is to let yourself make a difference, because each and every one of you CAN. What's important is not the amount, but the heart that comes with it.
We are now collecting donations via Bank Transfer/iBanking or you can send them to the Pinay Xanderettes straight via PayPal. Please see details below:
POSB Savings 209-19546-1
Account Holder: Su Li Qing (9128 7699)
Questions may be posted to this thread or tweeted to us or on Facebook. Please join us and love our friends in the Philippines! Spread the word to your friends~ They don't have to be Xanderettes to join this project.
