Hot Air Balloon Festival 2012

Before I start,
If you're lazy to read till the end,
my conclusion is

GO IN THE MORNING.

Wake up early,
get there early if you want to get a ride on the hot air balloons.

It's worth it to wake up early for it.

Read on for the reason
that cause me to come to this conclusion.

First,


Oh look. 
=D

Fedora and t-shirt,
likeatourist.

I have to explain something.
I was down with 
Click to be led to wiki.

Anyways,
I recovered from it,
which you will read more about in my next post.
Dum Dum Dum.

But what better way to test my balance
than to take public transport.
=D

So here. 

I guess I don't have to rant about no having my own transport. =/

KLIA transit is available for those
who are nearer to KL central and dun have your own transport.

Tell the counter person "putrajaya"
and hand them a RM10.
And you'll be given back a RM0.50 (and a smile if you're cute. *wink*)

Trust me,
I know. 


 Ma bitches yo!!
Only I can call them bitches.
If you do,
you're gonna get slapped by yours truly.

The train from KL Central to Putrajaya took about 15 mins.
No one timed it,
so well that's about the time.

When you get there,
you'll have to look for the bus station.

We took bus 701,
but I think other buses go there to.
It's like Rome.

You can take the RM0.50 that you got from the previous ticket
and give it to the bus driver
(along with the smile if you want to).
Because that's how much it costs to get there.


That was the first and only balloon we saw when we got there.
We were all confused and giant question marks over head.
Because 


WHERE ARE THE BALLOONS??


Turns out that the hot air balloons needs rest too.
Too much hot air around and in them just don't work.
They need a difference of 75 degrees Celsius (that's what I heard)
between the outside and inside air to fly.


I knew that there were 2 balloon riding sessions,
but I didn't know that the balloons will be down
between the sessions,
coz I thought they'll be there on display or something like that.


So well,
we walked around the bazaar looking place in pic below.


 Had to blur out the faces because the girls was making an odd face
and if she sees it she's probably going to flip.


We saw pictures of balloons at least.
=D


One more reason to go there early.



After walking around
and waiting for 5.30pm which is the second session
for balloon riding,
we decided to sit in this beautiful gondola
and have our afternoon tea 




if it hadn't evaporate before we could sip it.


There are actually a lot of activities around.
You can be creative with your time,
if you decide to stay there
and see how long you can stay under the sun before you evaporate.



And while walking around,
we were all part time models for Cocoro,
my female bitch.


Well,
scroll up to look for the photo if you dunno who or what I mean.


She took loads of nice pics,
which are still resting in her cam.
I doubt they're gonna go up soon,
coz UM line sucks.


Anyway,
we had fun guy watching,
hottie spotting,
kid bullying,
bubble pumping
and free drink grabbing.
=D


Free freeflow Mountain Dew!!


WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Well thanks to them,
I was hydrated
and not broke.
=D


I think I drank the whole big bottle of Mountain Dew
in a lot of small cup.
=p


Coz imagine the hot weather and a place like this,
people would want your head in exchange for a bottle of water.
And trust me,
unless you drove a water tank there,
the water you bring is not enough.


*another reason to go early*


IT'S NOT SO HOT!!!


When it was finally about 5.30p.m.,
when I say about I means after,
they started trying to assemble the balloons.
=D


We stood and squat and sat there for about an hour
and nothing happened.


And then,


 It got bigger
 and bigger
 and bigger




And that was the largest it got.
=/


And after sitting there,
sulking more,
someone noticed a balloon already in ze sky!!
=D


So we dragged our tired butts over there
and voila!!


I guess you can see the bigger small balloon in the air,
but if you look closely,
the one of the two small dots are hot air balloons that have flown away.







Up up and away!!

 I just think this pic looks nice.
=p
 The final balloon that we saw rising before we decide to run.



Did you know that Putrajaya looks so nice?


It's beautiful,
and well,
it's kinda nice to see that my tax money is making something beautiful.




It took quite long for the bus to arrive on the way back.
It was so packed when we were on it,
the bus had to skip stations coz it can't even open the door
to let others in.



And that was the end of the day.
=)


It was fun.


If you read till here,
you're awesome enough,
and here's a the summary + analysis as a reward,


Go early.
As early as possible
because:


a) Less traffic congestion.
People who went early would be able to find parking easier,
and they can avoid traffic when they wanna go home,
coz you can go home anytime you want.


b) Less people


So how many would go early
if they didn't know that early is better?


And a lot of people don't know
that the balloons will be down in the afternoon.


It'll also be easier to find your friends if you get lost among the not-so-crowd.
Yelling their names out loud would make them embarrassed enough to come out. 


There would be more chances of joining in the activities too.
Coz they have more in the morning.


c) Less air/noise pollution.


There are a lot of smokers around.
Even when there are obviously a lot of kids, toddlers, and babies.


Smokers just don't care.


There'll be less people so less talking.
Plus,
it's too early to talk out loud.


Everyone's vocal cords are probably still warming up.




d) Less heat.


Less people and less sun rays, less heat, less frustration. 
Nuff said.




CONCLUSION AGAIN,


GO IN THE MORNING!!!


And remember to
SLAP ON A LOT OF SUNBLOCK.
coz Cocoro got 3 shades darker and I'm not even exaggerating.


For more colourful pics,
you can go to FishSzeHui's Blog
=D

If you're driving there,
don't even complain for the car park and crowd,
because you saved a lot of walking. 

that's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
p.s. I'll be posting more pics by cocoro not so soon. =D

Draw something!

If you haven't tried this game
and you have a smart phone,
you should try it.

Because it's fun and more importantly
it's FUNNY. 
=D

It's a game that let's you show off you drawing skills. =D
*cough* lied *cough*


Here are a few pictures that I find funny/interesting. =p
With no intentions of shaming the person who drew them.

You could try guessing. 
answer will be below the picture. 

So scroll down slowly.














Sheriff













Fire

This next one is very tricky.










Magician



This one is just funny. 









It was supposed to be pet food,
which I guessed.

But well,
apparently my colleague feeds his cat wisky.











Mask

As you can see from the answer I typed,
well
I have no idea why i think it looks like Kobe.

Kobe Bryant that is. 



Next looks easy,
and you may guess it's a mustache,
but it's not.












Nose hair
wtf.


Then we have words.












Even with words,
I have no idea what he wrote. 

It looked like P iii g. 

I have no idea what comes after piiig.

The answer was actually Pong.

He wrote Ping.
















Sofa














Pegasus


The rest were some of my art work.







 Ok,
Jordan was no. 23.

Somehow I connected Beckham to Jordan.

Make your own connection to understand
why I wrote no.7.









Well,
it really is fun and funny. 
See how much fun I had trying to guess
what the people drew?


=p


Just give it a try, fast,
coz it's getting cold already.


that's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~

When you don't have a car in KL (part 2)


Unrelated I'm-so-tired-but-still-have-to-pretend-to-be-happy-for-the-sake-of-nice-picture picture. 


Well,


This post won't be as sarcastic or witty as the previous one,
(if that was how you find it)
so if you're looking for something funny,
maybe you should go to Sarcasam? Puh-leeze!
(Trust me, he's sarcastic.


In a good way.)


Because I'm all sour partially coz I'm scared.


If you haven't read the funnier, more picture, part 1 of the same title,
GO.


Well maybe you should read this grumpy version first
then scroll down a little to that post
to make you feel a little better.


Well,
this is more of a complaint.


I was on my way home from Pavilion
to celebrate my friend's birthday yesterday. 


Staying in Subang,
it's out of anyone's way to send me back,
if my friends had cars,
which wasn't the case.


Anyways,
I had to switch from walking to monorail,
to LRT, to walking and to bus
just to get home.


Because the bus just don't bring and stop anywhere you want.


My friends were facing almost the same problems. 


I was fine until the final walking and taking the bus part
coz my friends were with me in the LRT. 


While I was walking from the LRT to the bus stop,
a man yelled across the street at me.


I kinda panicked
coz well,
someone yelling at me would make me panic,
more over, it was a stranger,
wearing a helmet and a huge jacket.


My first thought was:
Should I run? 


I think too many people have been robbed and
sometimes killed because
they were nice and tried to help someone.


(Reading too much news makes you paranoid somehow)


I was walking alone,
and the nearest people were about 10m away.


If anything happened,
(like if he snatched my bag and jabbed me with a knife)
they would be too late to help.


See what I mean by paranoid?


My mom would tell me




But well, I didn't.


So I just went ahead and talked to him as he walked over.


Well turned out he just wanted to find out where the Hilton was.


Which was just next to us
with obvious bright blue lights that spelled out "HILTON".


Anyway,
I just assumed that he can't read
I helped,
so I walked away.


Waited for almost an hour for the effing bus.
It was 9 something at night,
I was tired and I just wanted to go home.


When the bus was finally here,
it was crazy crowded.
Which was logical.
Because so many people were waiting for so long.


Had to wait my turn to get on the bus,
which means standing and waiting till there's a space
for me to get on
without physically touching anyone.


But the lady behind me just decides to push me
like I'm the door and I need to get out of the way.
I would totally bitch slap her if we were alone.


Got on the bus and I thought everything was fine,
I could be un-bothered for the rest of the night. 


Because someone explained Murphy's Law to me
and now I'm blaming everything on him.
=/


When I got to Sunway Pyramid,
some lady just decides that she's thin enough to squeeze in between another girl and I.


She would fit
If she was half her size.


Pffftttttt.


Please people,
PLEASE assume that you're fatter than you think you are.


If you think the space is kinda small,
IT PROBABLY IS!!


I was standing near the door,
there was the "barrier".


Well basically I was cornered by her fat ass and squashed against the "barrier".


WTF LADY.


She saw that I was squashed
and not a single fuck was given.


FINE.


Sometimes it's not really about the public transport that pisses me off,
it's the people.


If everyone who took public transport
would behave,


queue up when we're suppose to,


let people out before they get in,


not push anyone who's standing in front of them,


not stare at people because we're wearing too little in their opinion,


taking public transport would be less painful. 


Well it's be nice too,
if people would let people with heels sit down.
=p



that's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~


p.s. Those who don't have a car in KL or surrounding areas,
do leave your problems in the comment,
and if there are enough,
I'll compile them and make part 3.
