slumdog thousandaire (the BOH's 80th anniversary carnival story)

haaa.... amik ko! 3 hari aku tak blogging, boleh? rindu tak? sure sure rindu kan? huhuhhuh..... ok ok ... bukan apa, aku agak tidak stabil sikit semenjak 2 hari lepas. maybe sebab aku rush kott... so, sekarang dah agak stabil, meh aku cerita sikit apa dah jadi masa telematch tuh....



malam sebelum telematch tu, aku dah anxious gila dah. aku tido pukul 2pagi sebab aku tengok cerita keluarga 69. kekekekke... lawak seyy. pukul 0530pagi aku dah bangun dah. aku bangun pack semua barang aku sebab aku risau la kan, takut tak sempat lepas telematch tu, aku kena rush amik bus untuk balik kedah lak.

siap2 pagi tu, kami bertolak awal la. sebab aku tak ingat jalan nak pergi ke zoo negara. so, i took a road that was mentioned to me. main redah jek. drive pun tahap kura2 kena parkinson punya speed la. tau2, tak sampai 40mins, kami dah sampai pun kat zoo negara. awal gila lak tu. aku ingat park kat luar la kan, senang sikit nak ciao nnt. nak elak crowd and also nak elak kena bayar parking. sekali dah dpat spot baekk punya, ada lak aney ni datang: "4 ringgit" kepala batas betul! park dah la sikit punya jauh, harga still the same macam parking kat dalam. sabar2.....

so, sampai awal, kami register kat first check point. dapat tikets and participant badges. since we had time in our hands, we meronda la dalam zoo tu. tengok the animals yang dah lama tak tengok we all. derang rindu tu. cuba korang tengok baby giraffe tu, siap tersipu2 malu lagi tgk kami datang melawat dia. boleh?

jalan punya jalan, finally jumpa la tapak carnival tu. takde apa lagi. derang masih tengah set up. we were the first to arrive. so, survey la benda apa kena buat. kami dah start strategizing, who will be playing in what game. then, when the carnival unofficially began, we were given a passbook upon 2nd registration. siap dapat tikar lagi untuk picnic kat situ. mmg fun la.

the official contest started with a set of 50 Qs to be answered. i was the first to grab the folder, maklum la, kiasu maa... we had 30mins to answer all the questions as correctly as we can. the answers were all over the carnival area. we had to ask, and even begged for the answers. aku tanya kieran, aku tanya hunny, aku tanya rachel, even hubby kepada cucu J.A Russell (founder of BOH) pun aku tanya. semata2 nak dapt jawapan. when the 30mins were up, it was time for picnic lunch. tu yang best tuh. dah la lapar gila. lauk yang derang serve lak mmg sedap. masa kami tgh lunch, derang periksa the answer sheets and kira markah. out of 80 teams, only 8 will be picked. so, while still waiting, aku sama yah gi main gasing, quilla and quida main guli. main congkak la, batu seremban la... semua yang ada... semua kami cuba.

after about 1 hour of waiting, it was time for the announcement. aku dah pesan dah sama the girls. aku cakap kalau tak dapat ni, takpe la. we head back. lagipun, aku nak kena balik kedah kan. and they all agreed. kieran was holding the paper with the 8 teams, and aku cuma mampu diri sana and tunggu. sekali tengok, the first team that was called were: "team ALIA ASHA'ARI"!!! . omg... masa tu... aku punya elated, mmg takleh nak bayang la. i was so so so so damn happy masa tu.

and oh yeah, remember masa aku masuk KCK dulu? my partner, Lut, he was there. he has his own team and who knew that we were to compete against each other. but there were such darlings that they were supporting us and we were also cheering for them. and as if the universe spoke, his team too made it to the final 8.

the games were very trivial la. tapi mmg require skills. especially yang bab kena tarik teh tu. that task was given to the Chef, Yah. aku rasa, kalau i was put to do that task, i don't think i could have done any better. but she tried her best, that i knew and i was happy because out of the 8 teams, only our team was supported by the FlyFm MyVi troopers gang. gila best la. they were cheering us on. and they were dead funny.

after all the games were done, and the scores tallied, we only managed to get the consolation prize. takpe la... janji we were the final 8. tu pun aku dah happy and the main thing is, we enjoyed ourselves to the max. tapi yang paling terkejut tu, the grand prize winner was a team that was an underdog. nak kata slumdog thousandaire... haaa... ni la dia. serious tak sangka that they won. i thot that Lut's team was going to win that i even congratulated him before they annouced the winner. after the announcement, even some of the officials there made that "WTF?" look. tapi nak buat macam mana, dah rezeki orang, kita tumpang lah gembira kan?

nevermind... there is always a next time. i know the law of attraction works. berbaloi juga aku balik KL just for this ;)
