    Kick Off @ Genting....

    was half way thru this post a week plus back..then i got and sick and stuff... im much better now..thank you..! i was able to run again... so its gettin good... a'ight punks... lets get things rollin' shall we...
    a couple of tuesday's back... a couple of friends from my old work place and i went up to Genting... for no apparent reason... i was hoping we'd leave in the morning and by lunch time we'd be freezing our asses of at Genting... but as faith would have it... those joker's only picked me up about 6 pm... but what the hell right... a road trip is still a road trip ya..?

    half way thru... we're getting hungry... stopped over at tanjung malim.... if im not mistaken.. for some reason we got a box of Dunkin Donuts... as Homer J Simpson would go... *drool* eeemmmmmm dooonuuttss!! *drool* creamy...sugary... chocolaty...dunkin donuts...
    a while after our sugar fueled snack... i was feeling the effects of a sugar rush... i was a lil hyper.. i could feel the sugar going thru my veins.. a lil uncomfortable i tell you...



    but it was alright... considering not too long later.. about an hour or so... 8.30pm we're at the peak of Genting.... The City of Entertainment... parked the car at the First World Hotel... and after about a minute out of the car i promptly decided to put on my jeans... i was wearing shorts ya see... and the family jewels weren't accustomed to the coldness... it was roughly about 20 D.C then...


    i inquired about vacant rooms.. standard rooms were sold out.. yea right! superior rooms were available at 90 bucks... ya'll have a couple thousand rooms..half of which are made out of standard rooms..its a week day and you're sold out... call me stupid if that aint classic up selling? it was only after 9pm so i said i'll be back... we're more interested in getting something to eat....

    after "painstakingly" pondering which fast food joint to crash..... we ended up at Burger King....
    i really like the carousel... the one opposite BK... everytime im there i admire the carousel... its so fairytale-y... bright.. with those white ponies... but i never get to ride it... cause its only for kids... real unfair... maybe they should make a bigger carousel for the bigger kids..? after dinner we strolled about the indoor theme park at the first world plaza.. got ourselves indoor theme park tickets at RM20 each.. it was already 10pm by then and we only had 2 hours to get our 20 bucks worth of rides before they closed up.... we did manage to go on 5 different lame ass rides which equalled to 20 bucks... the 4D motion master was good.. better than when i last went.. it was only 3D then... and the bumper cars were fun...

    after midnight i took they guys for a walk around Genting... thru all the hotels.. pointing out the different casino's... im still waiting to get into the casino since i turned 21 a few years back... this time around the jokers i were with were malay... its haram for 'em to gamble and i didnt wanna go in alone... so yea... leisurely walk around genting...trying to figure out what to do... we didnt wanna sit in starbucks or the bean with hot drinks that would turn cold in a matter in minutes...
    we walked to the outdoor theme park and boom....! there was a fiesta going on... literally.... so many people... samba music... dancing... costumes... chicks in costumes... it was the Kick Off @ Genting and it was free...!

    football head dude... greated us

    chicks in costumes....

    more chicks in costumes...

    and somemore chicks in costumes...

    chicks in short super tight pants..doing to samba....!

    Kick Off @ Genting was in conjunction with the 06 World Cup... they turned the Arena of Stars into a "Stadion" stadium in German... there were like 5 giant screens... with one mother of all giant screens in the middle... mind blowing sound system... and a replica football pitch... it was as good as sitting in a stadium watching a live football match... no shit.. the guys at Genting did good..!




    Before the football match started... we're treated to performances by the dancers from The Mysteria Show... and a Chinese acrobatic troop... real nice.. real nice... the chicks from the Mysteria Show are HUGE... big built... like guys...!

    they even had their own show hosts and pundits whatever.... this chinese chick and a british bloke.. it was an awesome...awesome experience... i would have paid money for something like that... and the fact that it was free made it even sweeter... it was the Germany vs Argentina match that morning... it was freaking cold... i was only wearing a long sleeved shirt... hadta button up to the max... the match was awesome... felt like the first 90 mins went by fast... maybe cause i was falling asleep and waking up every now and then.... during the second half of extra time.. awi caught me dozing off... he woke me up and suggested we leave... his eyes literally red... i was like dude.. lets just hang on for a lil... and in the final 2 minutes Argentina scored 2 superb goals... awi and i were like the first ones to jump up and go crazy... what sleep? it all just went away... the atmosphere... the quiet chill and then sudden jumps and shouts of joy... were amazing... real amazing...

    by this time it was 6am and 16 DC.... we wouldn't be able to get a room now... not until 12pm anyway... we headed back to the car... and roughed it out... i got the back seat all to myself.. which was awesome.. cause the Myvi had pull down seats and i had myself a bed right there albeit with limited leg room... i made do though by bending my legs a this way and a that way...


    we got up at about 10 am... i actually hadta wake the jokers up... cause we're going down to KL... and i didnt wanna get stuck in a jam....
    managed to find a day use room at a budget hotel in Bukit Bintang... i was really unconfident with the hotel... it was filled with people in front of the lobby hogging you for a massage... like what the fuck man? but we had no choice... i really wanted a shower and a change of clothes... it had a hot shower and the bathroom was relatively clean... all that mattered at that time....

    THE view from our hotel room... so you can only imagine the rest....
