Hosaywood DVD review on A Nutshell Review

Hosaywood DVD has been A Nutshell Reviewed:

On KWA GIU: From the pre-kick off happenings outside the stadiums with the selling of fan made merchandise and finger foods, to the vocal support of the Singapore Lions when the game is underway, with half time loo interludes and body refueling from the snack bar, right down to lights off, Jacen and Team captured them all, preserving what would be precious memories of how a single location became the melting pot for Singaporeans from all walks of life, there for the sole mission to support our football team (and having a field day while at it), complete with cheers, jeers, and rocking drum beats.

It’s as much a tribute to the National Stadium, as it is to the Singapore Football (Diehard) Fan.”
