Short Talk:

Do you or someone you know has blood type A+? Friend of mine Bernard Geikie who's in Kuching Specialist Centre is in URGENT need of this particular blood type. If you can help, please donate.

New Year's Eve Celebration in KL

Happy 2006 boys and girls, and greetings from KL!

Believe it or not, this is the actually first time I've welcomed the new year in a city that's NOT Kuching or Perth. What a culture shock it was.

This is the scene at Bukit Bintang at just 9:30pm on the last day of 2005. It was nothing short of chaotic madness. The entire city was literally SWAMPED by humans!

20060101-3.JPG

People spraying each other with cans and cans of fake snow and party strings! I honestly wonder what's so fun with those things. Can someone please enlighten me?

Sea of human heads. Here. There. EVERYWHERE.

Bukit Bintang wasn't my kinda place. I ventured out to KLCC Park after dropping my stuff off at the hotel.

There was a security alert at the US Embassy in Jalan Ampang earlier, so I'd expect the crowd to be less in that area.

WRONG. KLCC Park was just as well filled to the BRIM with humans, humans and more humans. They've even lined nicely up along the poolside. How cute.

Where the heck did all these people come from?

Maybe they've all come to see Adam from 8TV playing host that night.

Being new year's eve, there's no shortage of illegal traders freeloaders appearing between every corner and crease of KL, selling everything from drinks...


To lok loks...


To plastic trumpets...


To babies...

Wait a minute. Why would someone sell baby dolls by the roadside? Weird.

Fireworks!

Despite the security scare, the only thing that exploded that evening was the skies.

IT'S THE NEW YEAR!

Next stop, Zouk KL for music and drinks!

Crap, just ONE HOUR into 2006 and already I've broken my new year's resolution.

The theme for the night was "I *heart* NYE".

I know you *heart* NYE, but do you *heart* KENNY?

Looks like the illegal roadside traders weren't the only freeloaders here. The entrance charges were insane!

Of course, I managed to freeload off Zouk Ambassador Laineylashes and got in for free. Thanks Elaine!

Recharge was giving out freebies throughout the night. It looked suspiciously like Salem Light boxes, except the contents were:

Kids' toys.

From left to right, it's a party popper, this... some sort of contraption to make snappy sounds, a baton used for hitting people, a whistle and two glowsticks. All designed to irritate and torture my poor soul.

Dave Seaman? Isn't he the goalkeeper for England? What da heck is he doing here? England catch no ball, go become DJ kah?

Anyway, I was walking back to Bukit Bintang when I saw the aftermath of the new year's eve party. It wasn't a pretty sight, literally.

Way to go, guys. Start the new year by dumping your junk on the roadside instead of INTO the rubbish bins.

Despite that, I have a feeling that this year will be better than the last. Let's hope it's not just a feeling, but a reality.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Unregistered

happi new year kenny!!!

I celebrated New Years eve at KLCC 3 years ago and it was hellish. People were pushing and shoving, people falling down from being pushed, my big toe bled from being stepped on (really regret wearing a sandal instead of shoes that day) and I don't even want to mention how long the line was at the ladies' toilet -___- Because of that evening I developed a fear for crowds which took me years to get rid off *shivers* However, I'm glad I went for the experience and thus earned me bragging rights :-D

Unregistered

ppl are stupid tht way. throwing rubbish everywhere... damn irritating (n not to mention smelly)

Unregistered

happy new year, kenny! hopefully you'll manage to pulll-off all of your new year's resolution, kay? remember, alcohol is NOT water!! hikhik!!

Unregistered

the people - where they from? pro'bly the same source that manages to crowd out One Utama, Mid Valley, KLCC and Sg. Wang every weekend, without fail. It's truly a miracle!

Unregistered

happy new year, kenny!

Unregistered

Happy New Year Kenny! Was at Zouk too, think you missed that nasty spray. Hope this year's better than the last too!

Unregistered

David Seaman, not Dave, retired long time ago...(Yes, Eng-land do have some goalkeping problems)

May 2006 bring u all the joys and wishes you can hope for!

Unregistered

happy new year

Unregistered

i stay out of such countdown party ever since the emergence of Aerosal foam sprays few years back. damn iritating ! i hate it ! they should be a BAN on such Can Sprays !

Unregistered

Hmm... made me wonder... I thought you were going to meet nicole there at KL Kenny?

Unregistered

happy new year!

Some asshole sprayed pepper spray inside Zouk itself! So is Aerosol foam sprays still irritating?

Unregistered

Saw from your short talk..Bernard Geikie ? Whats wrong with him . I know a Bernard Geikie and am wondering if its the same one ? Unfortunately am not the same blood type but am worried..
Email me plse !

Unregistered

Happy New Year.
The scene at Sungei Wang is just the same as during the X'mas eve. Everyone went wild and spraying the fake snow (smelt so bad) all around. The whole road is full of the foam and stuffs. Too wild. Even passers by might get some spray too. Definitely not a good place to hang out. I saw some cars at Berjaya Times Square jockey parking area got sprayed too. Damn.

So this new year's eve I change destination to KLCC instead. Much better and not so wild as in Sungei Wang. hohoho

Unregistered

I was at starhill, was lucky coz i had vip pass and managed to sit in front of the stage. Thus I dont have to squeeze while enjoying the countdown. The celebration there was great..

Happy New Year!

Unregistered

Unregistered

day, Interesting... you must have seen me and my gf then. In fact, I'm still at KLCC leeching off the free Wifi at Starbucks. hehe

Unregistered

Happy new year kenny. Glad your new year didn't end up like mine (which was a little bit more like your christmas escapade).

Unregistered

Hey u. Forgot to thank u for calling dat nite. U didnt tell me nicole was with u dat nite. Wud have met up or something. Not that i wudnt meet up with u ha-ha. New Year's eve is over rated. Happy New Year anyway.

Unregistered

you're most welcome, grandpa :o) glad you had fun. i'll see you tomorrow! *hugs**

Unregistered

I just have to post a comment here, so the whole world knows how much i hate that white foam spray thingy-ma-jingy crap. Those things are only good for spraying windows at a shoe shop with cut-outs of snow flakes during christmas, not for anything else! And the growing trend of it being used at wedding dinners? give the married couple a break! They don't have to reach their table looking like frosty the snowman for heaven's sake! Not to mention, the poor guests that paid their 'saman' only to get floaters in their sharksfin soup.. Those things should be banned from supermarket shelves, bloody mess makers.

Unregistered

My! My! U certainly seemed to be in a foul mood New Year"s Eve. A year older...and that got into you? PMS? Well, life is what u make it, so don't worry, be happy!!

Unregistered

happy new year dude, i think the white striped shirt u were wearing made u look fatter... or was it the lights *confused*
nice meeting u all the same!

Unregistered

Yo Kenny,

great pictures of zouk, KLCC and fireworks you've captured, i suppose you used a tripod??

the fireworks pictures were so good when compared to mine in Telok Blangah Hill!!!

Unregistered

Road sweepers always have the most unenviable job of cleaning up the streets after a countdown party every year everywhere ;p

Unregistered

Hey Kenny... i love yr blog... been following for this recent. you're witty!!
Btw, i was there at KLCC... can't find rubbish bin, man...lol

Unregistered

I was at KLCC too!!

Unregistered

so dat's really u
weeeeeeeeeeeeee~i saw a..er....celeb? ha
p.s told my sis, n she was like "wat????u saw kennysia????" ha

Unregistered
