Here’s the thing: life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get inside(or so I’m told). But like any self-respecting millennial who’s packing way more talk than walk, I’d have to disrespectfully disagree. If anything, life can be neatly summarized as two-parts boring(partly spent humanizing your ass of a boss), one part pretending like the other two parts are more than it seems(social media anyone?). Solution? Marvel film. As such: they make it; we make them filthy rich. But like with any decent Marvel film with a would-be villain carrying out some form of misdeed, it always rounds out nicely by the eventual undoing of said villain by their(usually) more attractive hero counterpart. I’ll never be as well-formed(or symmetrically chinned) as Captain America, but if I can offer up a minor contribution in the overall bleak picture of life(too dark, ay?), then maybe, just maybe, I can be a hero. Right? Then to break into my new role, here’s a formidable primer: Bar Trigona.
This might be somewhat of a shellshock to the uninitiated but Bar Trigona, for all its pomp and circumstance, was certainly NOT used in the filming of Casino Royale, the much-lauded 2006 James Bond film. For one, this place is nearing its complete inception and the film made its debut 12 years ago. And not to come off as sounding like Logic Larry over here, this place(unfortunately) does not house a casino. But if I were a betting man, considering how righteously glamorous this place is, I’d wager all of my belongings(a laptop, an iPhone and a bloating 20 dollar bank total) that the next Bond film will rightfully set here.
What’s In It For Me?
I think that as a collective, always hungry, never satisfied society, we’ve taken the word “fresh” and have milked it into oblivion. As a self-righteous social media addict, I can’t tell you the numerous times my short attention span was made shorter by ads dictating the freshness of some obscure item I couldn’t care less about. Look: I’d rather enjoy life to its fullest, washing down any variety of Mcdonald burgers with cans upon cans of bittersweet, acid-laden Coke- even if it means spending the latter half of my life in a downward depressive spiral, forever labeled “just some guy”. That’s my prerogative. But if you’d rather be in what feels and looks like a golden palace overlooking a skyscraping view, sipping on quality cocktails imported FRESH from the likes of Pahang or Bangi Organic Farm and pretending you’re a posh protagonist in a next-in-the-line, imaginative 007 film, that’s also your prerogative. Bar Trigona has it. You’ll live longer, be view as higher status, and overall be happier…if that’s your kinda thing.
