Fun: Sunway Lagoon The Big 20 Experience.

Helloooo! I finally got my laptop back after 2 days of stupidly leaving it in the boyf's luggage and forgetting to take it back once we touch down in JB. :p 

Been wanting to blog about our Sunway Lagoon trip on 20th June 2013 as we finally did something different together (because admit it, there isn't  much to do in JB other than eating, shopping, watching movie and karaoke-ing).

Oh ya, I didn't name the blog title The Big 20 for fun. It's the name of the monthly promotion held by Sunway Lagoon on every 20th of each month. Just in case you didn't know. Lol. Each month, 1000 Malaysians are entitled to buy tickets for ALL parks at RM20! I highly recommend you guys to check it out and you have like 4 more chances since they extended the promotion till October 2013. Original price per tix is RM120 so we saved 100 bucks each! *cheapo alert hahahahaa* But seriously, I think it's a good bargain and seeing that we both need a break after a hectic sem, why not go for it? Coincidentally, my exams ended on 18th June and I have something on on the 21st so it was decided that we might as well stay a few more days to play in KL!

Shall start with us queuing up for the tix on 19th June and maybe based on our experience, you can pick up a thing or two should you decide to go play on the 20th next month too. :p 

Some terms & conditions:
1) Each Malaysian must present their IC to be entitled to buy the RM20 tix.
2) Each person is entitled to ONE ticket. SO if you plan to bring your whole family, you have to bring your WHOLE family there to queue for the tix on the 19th. 
3) Queue starts on the night of 19th around 9pm (usually). They claim the sales start at 10pm but it's better to go earlier cos if you're not among the first 1000, you will be sold RM50 tix. And don't go on 20th itself; all the cheap tix would've been sold out dy. I know, it's a bit of a scam.
4) Tickets are only available at the Sunway Lagoon Main Entrance Ticketing Counter.
5) Tickets entitle you to ALL parks except some rides like G-Force X, Bungy Jumping and Go-Kart where you have to pay extra.

What happened on the 19th:

We went for a shopping trip at Bukit Bintang. Wanted to wake up early like around 9, but we slacked till 10pm. And because we don't have a car in KL, we had to take public transport all the way to Bkt Bintang. Reached there around 12.30pm and shopped for around 5 hours before we left for home. Was pretty exhausted already when we reached home but I had to show the housemates my hauls of the day :P
I realise everything was mostly black, white and grey == Must remember to get more colourful clothes next time.

Eunice was scrolling through FB when she saw a photo posted by Sunway Lagoon official FB page. Then she shouted for me. "Rinn! You come and see! You think you go at 9pm still got chance to buy anot?!"

Wtf. Did NOT expect the crowd to go so early this time round. It was only 6.30 pm and I just reached home, for God's sake! Panic mode: ON. Oh btw, we BOTH won 8 Monsters University premiere tics from but we couldn't go cos we wanted to queue for Lagoon tix that night. We'd better get the Lagoon tix, else I'd rage. Dragged Moo out to go queue for the tix dy and we ALMOST forgot to take his wallet which had his IC, Visitor's Pass and cash -.- Thank God we remembered, cos I was broke :p

Called my cousin Xynna and my friend Sam cos they're all going to queue for the tix too. Sam was there already and he told me to hurry then he might be able to save a space for us. How kind. For the first time in my life, we managed to finish walking the canopy in 3 minutes wtf. Legs gonna break dy after a full day of shopping somemore.. The queue was crazy! Sam was right at the back with Sherying. Actually we felt quite bad about cutting queue but Sam was like, "Don't worry, behind people all I pakai already wan!" Hahahah champion.

We queued for about an hour? Then Clover, Xynna and her friends came. Bb went and get sushi for me. When he came back. there were cops and they were using loudspeakers to announce that we all had to take out our ICs and show it to them. Quite rude lah, IMO but what can you expect. After that they let us go into some barrier. Just before it was our turn, they passed us a numbered card and stopped us from entering the divider =.= I thought, whaaaaat we cannot buy dy isit? :( 

We were number 471 and up.

Then they let us in to another divided side to wait. All we could do was sit there and talk talk talk talk and complain about the heat and our butts hurting from sitting on the ground. ><

Only pic we took together ._.
Ahhhh the amount of people is too damn high!!!
About half an hour later, they FINALLY opened the gate for people on the first side of the barrier to buy and made us (on the second side) wait. -.- So unfortunately, we were right in front and they opened the gates right at the BACK for those people to buy first. So actually it doesn't matter what number you get, as long as you can squeeze to the front you can get the tix first. We got dragged around to the ticket counter where you STILL had to wait for them to let you in 10 by 10. When we FINALLY got our tix and they put the wristbands on us, it was 9.30pm already. Can't believe we queued 2 hours to get tix. 

My suggestions:
1) Get there early. Seriously though, idk why people are getting more kiasu and going to queue earlier than ever now.
2) Apparently, ada nombor janji dapat beli.
3) Buy more drinks, food and tissue paper cos you never know when it'll reach 1000 people before they decide to open the ticketing counter.
4) If you can, try and squeeze to the front when they open the gates. It's every man for himself at this stage. (chehwah)
5) Do not take off the wristband they put on your wrist the night before. That's your ticket to enter.
6) EAT more for breakfast before you enter Lagoon! They only allow you to bring in mineral water and the food in there is pricey so try to fill your stomach in the morning.
7) Do not go in later than 11am cos that's when the queue really starts and you'll want to have ample time to play ALL the rides.
8) Get the e-Locker for RM15 which enables you to open it unlimited, unlike the RM5 normal locker where you can only open once. Key must be returned before 5.30pm.

FINALLY we went home and ate dinner cooked by my housemate (Thank you, Jie En! :*) and turned in early for a looooong day tmr.

On the 20th:

As usual, we woke up late and had to rush to get ready. Slathered on sunscreen like nobody's business cos I was so scared of getting burnt >< Went and grabbed KFC breakfast and met Xynna and her friend there. It was around 11am when we entered Lagoon already so we had to plan what to play first. I chose to go to Water Park first cos I wanted to try out the Vuvuzuela!

Only got 20 dollars in my pocket~

These are photos the park photographers took for us at the entrance. Didn't want to get them initially cos most of the pics are repetitive but Sam was kind enough to get all our photos and compile them in the RM100 CD he bought and sent us the soft copy. Thank you, Sam! You are super duper kind! :D

The photographer made us pose so many funny poses wts XD

We forgot to get a disposable waterproof camera before we went in so we couldn't snap any photos in the themepark :( Oh wells. First stop, the water slides! Tried out the smaller ones first so I'd build up the courage to go on the Vuvuzuela. HAHAHA. And because the queues are shorter here. We tried the snake slide first, then the open air one.

Damn ugly. HAHAHA.

Spot me XD
Met Sam, Sherying and Clover when we were queueing and decided to go on the Vuvuzuela together since you need 4-6 people on a float. Clover went already and she was freaking out over the "free-falling" part which got me damn scared as well lol. But it was soooo fun! I loved it. The most exciting part was falling from the slides into the hollow part where you slide left and right and there's water gushing out from the pipes at the side. :D Then we went on the one slides with the mat and obviously I was the slowest to go down cos I'm so small and there's no momentum -.-

Next we tried out the Waterplex 5D. It's a virtual roller coaster ride and takes you to weird places like lavas and pirate fights with mermaids and snakes and what not. Water will splash at you randomly so it made the ride pretty realistic. One thing I didn't like about it was it was SO COLD! Not sure if I was screaming cos I was really scared, or really cold. Ran out after the ride to dry ourselves in the sunlight BRRR.

We went to the Wavepool to relax after that. Every 20th, they'll hire DJs for the event so it was quite nice dancing to the songs they mixed. This month it was DJ Jag and DJ Fatbone. They really hyped up the atmosphere! The boys had to piggy back me and Sherying cos we're so short ahahhaha. Then we had a quick lunch at Marrybrown. I wanted to go to the Extreme Park next to play the All Terrain Vehicles (ATV). BIG mistake. There were a bunch of people having a treasure hunt there so we had to wait for them to go on the ATV before it was our turn. One group even asked if we can let them go first after we had waited for 45 minutes in line. I was pretty hot and tired at this point so..

You may not.

But after that they had to do duck walk around the ATVs so I felt pretty bad lah.. Haha. I gotta say though, I'm pretty good at driving an ATV even though I can't even drive a car :P Quite sad for Clover who couldn't control her vehicle and ended up scalding her leg a bit on the engine. Ouch. :(

We went on the boat ride next. The canoes were off limits so we had to ride a lame swan. HAHAHA. Clover rode with Sherying cos Sam ran off to get plaster for Clover. After all that waiting, we went and relaxed at the beach for awhile. PANAS SIOL.

Fave pic. Please ignore the half-naked dude at the back.
It was getting pretty late so I rushed everyone to the Amusement Park cos I wanted to try out at least 3 parks. Scream Park is out of the question cos I refuse to step into a haunted house and Wildlife Park is lame. We went on the Tomahawk to get an adrenaline rush. Damn nice, no queue here! Oh, something really stupid happened here. Because I am so light, I stood up straight when the thing spinned 360degrees. I freaked out and was thinking to myself, 'F*CK I'M STANDING?!' When we came down to the ground, I quickly pushed myself down to the seat. And Sherying forgot to buckle her belt before the ride started and Sam was worried sick cos she could've flew out hahaha. Thank goodness nothing happened. I can't take this ride more than once, cos I felt sick after one round dy. Bleh.

Hmm.. After that nothing very interesting happened. Except some dude outside the haunted house dressed in formal wear went "Hello, hello" behind me and when I turned he was looking at me with a creepy face. And he had totally white eyes. I almost screamed. Asshole. And some Malay dude beckoned me when I was on the slides and said with all seriousness, "Ah Moi, you can do this!" LMAO.

Ahmoi, you can do this!
We parted with the three of them after that cos they wanted to play the Pirate Ship and I wanted to go on the Vuvuzuela again. Dammit the queue was so long this time but it moved fast. The second time was more fun idk why :D Then we rushed to return our e-Locker key cos it was 5.15pm already. And rented a RM5 locker cos we still wanna play :D Brought Bb to walk in the Zulu Walk which is some long 'river' with tunnels and waterfalls along it. We met a fat, hairy Pakistani dude taking photo with a Malay girl who seemed reluctant to put her arm on his shoulder. I was telling Baby, "I bet that's not his gf." Turns out I was right. Cos the next thing we knew, he asked if he could take a picture with us. Moo stood next to him, but he was like, "Oh no, she must be in the middle". Wtf.. I knew something was up. After that he requested to take a pic with me alone and he put his hairy arms around me. Eeeeewww! :(

Ok lah damn tired dy. So we went and hang out in the Wavepool for awhile. They brought out this big ball in the pool and you could climb into it hehe. So I climbed in for awhile to roll like a hamster wtf XD Finally around 6.30pm we decided to get changed dy cos we had a dinner date with Erica and Fabian. So damn crowded in the bathroom cos #girlsbeinggirls, everyone was either changing damn long, peeing damn long, curling their hair, doing their makeup or standing in front of the mirror for nothing... Surprisingly, same thing happened in the boys' room lol.

That night, we had dinner at BarBQ Plaza with Rics and Fab then cos we weren't full, we had dessert at Cornet. I really like the croissant topped with coconut ice cream! YUMS.


Erica came over to stay that night. And because we were STILL hungry, we stopped outside uni to get Ramli burgers. Always wanted to try the burgers from that stall and it was not disappointing! The lamb burger is damn good! :DD
Elikaaaa <3

My skin and hair got really horrible after playing that day. Called my mum to book facial for me on Sunday when I got back ugh. Talked and did mask and nails with Erica, Jie En and Eunice till about 2am that night so you can imagine how exhausted I was. But all in all, it was a fun day so I don't mind at all. Thank you Baby, for taking care of me and carrying my bags for the past few days. Can't wait for our next 'trip' together! :D x

Travel: Malacca getaway!

Hey guys, I'm back! Wow I really am a sucky blogger. My last post was more than half a year ago and this is my first post in 2013 wts :p not like anyone reads my blog but yeah..
I am so lazyyyyyy.... But I'm bored now, so sick of studying for finals. My first and last paper are 2 weeks apart, how ridiculous ~.~ So I decided to take my mind off the books for awhile and do something else. I opened the Blogger app and I was like, "I know what I'm gonna do today!" (whaddup Phineas & Ferb).

This will be a "revival post" starring... My friends! Or #unifamily. We went on a short trip to Malacca a few weeks ago to escape our hectic, hectic second half of Sem 3. I kid you not, it was really crazy, what with us juggling 2-3 assignments at the same time on top of presentations and tests ALL DUE ON THE SAME WEEK. Siao eh the management....

Anyhooooo. On 17th May, we decided on a spontaneous trip down to Malacca to EAT EAT EAT EAT EAT. This was my first ever trip with friends (ya I know I suaku) but it was rly fun so I thought I should document it :) Will try and upload whatever shots I have on fb soon!

 Woke up early in the morning to get ready + do last minute changes on our assignment cos it was due that day. Then rushed to uni to wait for the A-team to finish their last ever PD presentation! We were goofing around in class waiting for Chuen to arrive.
Soweee it's so blurrrr
My marketing girls! Hui and Yen! <3

It was drizzling and we were so worried that it will rain in Malacca then we can't go to Jonker Walk or the other food haunts dy :( We left around 12 plus (?), but ended up circling around Sunway waiting for each other to get ready. SH was so pissed cos we circled so many times dy that he cursed "Cuckoobird" and all of us in the car (me, Yen, Hui and Kevin Dajie) BURST out laughing! But ya lah the car journey was really fun cos we talked a lot of secrets in SH's "Church of Bono". The symbol is four circles wan X) What's said in the car, stays in the car! Too bad Yennie went over to Chuen's car cos we were too noisy and she couldn't sleep :( Along the way the drivers decided to race each other on the highway. Damn scary ity. 

We arrived first (yay!) in the hotel, but apparently it was the wrong one. /sien diao We just went down to pee and take pics by the pool anyways. 

In the end we found out the hotel we were staying at was actually under the hotel we stopped at! CHEH. And Chuen, Yen, KF and Laine had already checked-in and were camwhoring there dy. Still tell is they lay there till damn shuang! We forced them to stop lying on the beds to come out and eat dy cos it was 4pm and none of us had eaten lunch (or breakfast)! Ling was about to rage dy cos a hungry Ling is not a happy Ling xD  

All in! Too bad Shin, Gene and MX couldn't join us :(
PS: most photos were stolen from SH  cos I didn't take many :3
Food journey began! First stop, CHICKEN RICE BAWLZ!!! Craving since forever. :9 
Next stop, Assam Laksa and Cendol

Then we jalan-jalan and snap photos at the place w the buff guy's statue. After that it was about time they opened up the stalls in Jonker dy. But first, a group photo! 

Coincidentally, most of us wore black/white and lace that day.
Was asking Yen to take my #ootd for me and Ling was like, "She sure put on insta after this wan" XD
The boys.

Credits to Pam's bf, Boon!

Walk walk walk eat eat eat along Jonker Street. And take photo in front of Hard Rock Cafe. Oh ya, there's a really good shop selling Durian Puffs called Better Taste. :9 And of course the girls wanna stop at every stall to see what we could buy (#girlsbeinggirls). I bought a pair of polka dot shorts for RM10. Bargain find! :D

All photos were taken by Hui! Thanks for spamming my phone! Got so many cute shots of everybody! :D ugly don't blame me ah, but most of the time you all look good wan! Rly! 

Laine and Chuen. Omnomm.
KF aka Hang Lebat XD
SH and his hiao face.
Edited by Pam! hahaha!
Yennieeee. Sakulaaa. XD
Uh, me and some potato stick thingy.
Lingggg. and half of Poh.
Pam and Boon! Aww :)
Hi, Hui!
Sorry Dajie, only a tiny photo of you at the back! :/
My cute friends! Hmm.. After that we went for Satay Celup at KF's relative's shop. I think it's called McQuek's? We damn blur lah, one car went to the main branch, two cars went to the sub branch! Hahaha! Then smart Hui convinced them to come join us at the sub branch cos no one mah, so the gravy will be cleaner! XD I think we didn't dare to eat too much cos we were saving space for the back lane lala later onzzzzz. ;) Ling and Na can't eat much spicy food, Poh kept eating xD and SH doesn't even dare to eat w us cos he's scared of sharing food in case he gets Herpes wts. XD 

After that it was the main highlight! The LALA and SIHAMMM! Most ppl wouldn't dare to eat there I bet, and they'll be shocked at the condition of the back lane and its hygiene. The back lane has these long benches and tables and each table has a hole with a bucket in the middle for you to throw your shellfish shells. And the thing that is the biggest turn-off is the drains surrounding it and the longkang smell.... But it's super fresh and cheap and good! And uncle is super nice! 

PS: According to my dad, uncle was walking below a flat one day and someone threw a cupboard (or was it flower pot) down from the top floor and it hit him. That's why one of his arms is immobile now. So sad right :'( That's why he gave up his business and started to sell food in the back lane. There's two stalls at the back lane, so if you see an old uncle with an injured hand, go support him! His food is damn nice!  (Y)

I think ah, we sapu-ed like 50 plates of siham and lala cos they were so fresh and sweet! And there were 14 of us and each person had at least two plates so... Whoa. Plus the rojak and cuttlefish&vege salad, we were soooooo bloated after that! /burppp. 

Next stop, hotel! In the car, SH made a damn funny joke that made Ling, Dajie and KF and I burst out laughing. The convo went like this:

Ling: SH, I ask you ah, what if some motorcyclist drive past you and hit your side mirror? 
SH: Aiya, what can I do. Can't expect payment from him also. They so poor dy that's why drive motor mah. 
Ling: Hmm good point also. But what if he insists that you pay leh? 
SH: Then.... I ask him to just take the mirror lor! 

LMAO. Ok lah I say like this you all sure don't think it's funny wan but idk why we kept laughing and laughing about it in the car leh! "Ambillah". AHAHAHA. 

Jetty Suites Hotel is pretty decent and affordable, since it's a suite that can house 14 of us in 3 rooms + there's a kitchen and living and dining room. Ok I will not write about what happens in the hotel cos it's not so interesting lah ;) Anyway I slept the earliest and woke up the latest so missed out on a lot of things. And most of them went to the beach at night... ~.~ But it was fun eating McD supper and having heart-to-heart talks with everybody, especially the girls! 
Otw back, we had dimsum breakfast. Stupid SH kept snapping ugly photos of us. Oh, and Nadeje! I finally know what all the hype about their crepe cake is about, it's rly SO GOOD! ❤.❤  In love~ 

We also stopped by Klebang for Coconut Shake. Too bad I didn't drink much, so going back to get it next time! Oh and everyone was so pekcek w us cos we took a rly long toilet break... Turns out we stopped by a 5-star hotel to use the loo and take photos there hehehe. But the rest took a long time to use the rest area toilet too cos Pam was playing w the height/weight machine hehehe.

Awesome trip, thanks so much to everybody for the fun and laughter! Special thanks to:

Ling; for taking care of our expenses and ordering food for us. Kamsahamida!
Ang, SH and Chuen; for driving us down from Selangor and back again! Also thanks Ang and SH for being our photographer! 
Kevin dajie; for being the "GPS" and leading the way for us. Also for being out DJ for the night. XD 
Laine; for helping w the food ordering and being a nanny and taking care of us. 
KF; for cleaning up the hotel living room for us the next morning! 
Hui; for looking after us that night and making us laugh w her lame jokes. :p 
Pam & Boon; for being the life of the party that night! 
Yen; for cleaning up the broken glass pieces! 
Na; for being the mummy and making sure no one got lost.
Poh; for taking food for us when we were having satay celup! 

Can't wait for another trip with you all! :) and you guys have fun in Morib!
