Euro2008 MOTM

I back from Genting Highland lo...
It sure was a tiring day on the arriving day. Haha!
Thank for my almost-dried handphone, i couldnt take as many pictures when i was on the activities. :(
However, i could just describe what had happened on that day itself.

Well, it started when Henry and I reached ....
Mandarin Oriental Hotel around 930am. We were the first to be there. I was amazed by the 'standard' of the hotel we went. Damn it so classy! i bet i wont able to stay a night at there. the price sure 'kills me'. It located just right between KLCC and KLCC convention centre.
Anyway, let gets back on the story...

Closing to 10am, many media presses and participants arrived and we went on board a bus booked by Carlsberg and we headed up to the 'entertainment city'. I slept all the way to First World. I slept because i slept late on the previous night and woke up early.

Arriving at First World, we all headed to the lobby to be register and get our gifts (nametag, lanyard, vouchers, a sport t-shirt). Too bad, i cant take much pictures of the gifts. After that, Henry went to find his friend and I followed a group of participants to Coffee Terrace to have our free lunch. That time were 12.05pm and we were told to be in Theme Park Hotel by 1230pm. How in earth we would eat our lunch within 25minutes? Poorly plan. Person A say one, Person B say another.

So we had our lunch as fast as possible and rushed to Theme Park Hotel to have a brief meeting of the activities that we will faced. There were 9 games/challenges for the participants/finalists to challenge. Some of them are easy, but some are HARD! well, this is my opinion and i dont know about others.

In uniform

As far as i remembered (yea, didnt take pictures on the games' description), there are :-
        1. dribbling a ball thru 10 cons in Snow World
        2. rock climbing
        3. Archery
        4. Ricochet bowling
        5. kiss an iguana (it's HUGE)
        6. sit space shot and memorize countries that in euro2008
        7. sit flying dragon and transfer wristbands from one arm to another arm.
        8. sit spinner with a ball put in between your legs.
        9. kick 10 balls into the holes.
That was the challenges i gotta go thru in order to win a ticket to watch euro2008.
The game started at 230pm at Coffee Terrace. i chose to go to kiss iguana as my first station. well, we can randomly choose which challenge we want first.
So in the end,
i managed to do all challenges except challenge No.6 and challenge No.7.
I have a reason behind this. It's because i afraid of height. SERIOUSLY! NO KIDDING! i would die if i sit space shot, for instant. DIE you know!
surrendered myself at 5pm at Safari and i was given my room card.
Head back my room and rest til 7pm. Ohya, Henry rejoined me when i was surrendering myself. LOL.

At 730pm, we (ALL people) went to Safari for the cocktail-buffet dinner-winner announcement. the food in Safari was EXCELLENT! Not to forget the free-flow of Carlsberg beer. I keeps on drinking and drinking. Well, i pretty much in control of myself from getting wasted. The best part was the interview i did during the event of the night. i was partially over-dosed with alcohol and i did an interview. LOL. quite fun and casual interview. i never thought that i would do so well.

me and Carlsberg.

Well, after the winner announced, the event slowly ended and me and some finalists stayed there a little while and 'was told by mr lee jak tim to finish up the barrel of carlsberg beer'. He is sure a nice guy and able to drink one shot finish and FAST. Well, we did slowly finish up those 3-4 jugs of beer. And later henry and i went back to our room and called it a day. Beforehand, i went to macd and bought a bigmac as my supper.

So on the following day, we departed from genting highland on 11am and arrived back to Mandarin Oriental Hotel. And both of us slowly head back home and sleep!
