It's time to 'eat' paint!!!

The week before I went to KK, I was at Pasir Pandak again with my own gangs for another paint ball match. This time, we got 18 people so there is 9 people in each team. Some of us gather around 10am at satok for some breakfast and we reach our destination around 10.45am. When we reach there, we take some time to visit the war field while waiting for the others. Now, let me show you some photo of the war field.

Jungle War Field

*This is what you see when you step in the field. The base of Team A.

*There is many bunkers inside the field.

*Actually there is many crossline in the field, but this is the one that clearly shows that it's a crossline.

*Base for Team B. It's at the back part of the field.

*Everyone looks so excited!!!

"The other Field" (Don't know how to call it)

*This is how the field looks like.

*Although this field is small, but there's a lot of place for you to hide.

*This is just for acting nia!!!

*Surrender or Die!!!

The briefing starts around 11.30am and we start our games at 12pm. This time, we go for the small field match first, and everyone is just given 10 pellets. And this game just took less than 30 minutes to finish. After that, we go for the jungle field, we play 2 games in that field. We set 20 minutes for each game and 15 minutes to rest in between the games.

*Call me 'RAMBO'!!!

*This tinted mask belongs to the marshal, cool leh!!

*Choose your own marker before you go into the field.

Everyone was very fun after playing the games. We finished our pellets around 2pm. And Jeremy has injured his knee when the last game is about to finish. So, me and Vincent accompany him to clinic to check his knee. Unfortunately, he is not able to climb mountain KK on the next wednesday. Because we are the only two who already booked for the mountain climbing, so we have to cancel it. And this cost us Rm235 each for the deposit. So, have to plan for next trip to KK for the mountain climbing.

*This is what I got for this paint ball game, an "oche"!!

Paint Ball @ Pasir Pandak

I back from Sibu on the 5th of July by driving and reach Kuching around 6.30am. Once we reached Kuching, I didn't direct went home but I went to Roy house to have a nap and wake up around 9.30am because me, Roy and Ian have to reach Pasir Pandak (Santubong) by 10am for Paint Ball. The Paint Ball location is located at Pasir Pandak, Santubong. Once you turn into there, just follow the main road and you will discover a sign board with "Sg. Buah" at your rightside, just turn into there and you can see the place. The name of the place is "Borneo Paint Ball".

*This is the place, Borneo Paint Ball!!!

*And this is where they prepare all the things.

Before we start the game, everyone has to listen to the briefing on our safety. Because the owner of the place was late, so there is another person brief us. And his 1 of his gang who invite us for this game. They are all pro in playing this already.

*He is the one who brief us at the beginning, our opponents also.

*Everyone has to pay attention to the briefing.

*If you can look closely, the one with light blue shirt is the owner of this place, Mr Sim.

So, after the briefing, everyone of us know that what's the name and use of our equipment. And we also know the ways to make sure our friends and our own safety. The equipment include mask, neck protector, vest and marker. When we are in the game, once we step into the war field, we have to make sure our mask in on. As long as when we're in the war field, we cannot take our mask on no matter what happen (such as there's bee go inside your mask) to protect your ears and eyes. If you encounter this problems, you have to raise your hand and call for the marshal to help you. This is the most important things to remember when we're playing paint ball. Besides that, we also have to avoid to point the marker to anyone before the game start, the safety pin have to be on before the game start. And if we start shooting, we also can't point the marker to high because it might cause the paintball to fly outside the war field and hit somebody else.

*This is the mask that have to be equipped all time during the game.

*The vest. If you don't wear also can but you have to tahan the pain.

*The cloth with XXX is the neck protector, you can also don't use it if you're not scare to have love bite on your neck.

*This is the gun, and it's called marker.

*The paint ball.

So, what are we waiting for?? It's time to equipped ourself. Our team is using the black vest and our opponents are using the brown vest. As we know, we sure will lose to them because 90% of our team members are playing this for the first time only.

*Guess which one is Ian and which one is Roy??

*It's time to equipped ourself!!!

*Our opponents!!

There's two kind of war field, one is the jungle and one is just a face to face field with many bunkers. For this time, we just play the game in the jungle because there's too many of people. If I'm not mistaken, every team got about 12 people.
*The jungle war field.

*The field with lots of barrels.

*Queuing to get our marker.

*Is everyone ready??

*So, everyone is in the field. Before the marshal start the game, let's discuss strategies.

*The game is about to start in 10 second, please take your position!!!

*This is what we called camping. Hide to wait for enemy to come.

We play for 4 games from 11am until 2pm. Although our team just win 1 of the game, but all of us really enjoy the game. All of us just spend RM50 at the beginning for all the equipment and first 100 bullets. After you finish your first 100 bullets, for every reload, 100 bullet just cost RM20. So, if you want to play until very syok, RM70 is enough, unless you really want to be rambo and shoot non stop, you can always reload if you think that the bullets is not enough for you.

*Head shot!!


*Our team!!!


*Yeah!! It's a nice game. Actually there are more people but many of them didn't join in to take photo.

*This is what I got after the game. Can you feel the pain!!

This is just my first time of playing paint ball and I really like it although I got some 'love bite'. After this game, me, Ian and Roy start to asking our own friends for next game. And guess what, many of our friends really to to join us also. For the next time, I will the the person who giving other people 'love bite', hahahaha~~~ If anyone who like to play paint ball, don't forget to ask me for the game, I would to like join you people also.

9 Days @ Sibu

Lets continue the post of my 9 days Sibu Trip from 27th June until 5th July. We went there for Celcom Roadshow which held at the Borneo Cultural Festival. The Borneo Cultural Festival is the annual event of Sibu which like our Kuching Festival. Once we reach Sibu, we went to the BCF location to survey our booth. We were so shock after we reached there because the area for this event was so big, if you know where is Wisma San Yan, then you should know how big is the field in front of that building. Not only that, the area of this event still include the open space that as big as the our Kuching Festival area which opposite the big field in front of Wisma San Yan. Unfortunately, I just manage to take some photos of this event because we start work everyday when the event start and finish the work when the event ends.

*This is the open area that I mentioned, and this is where we worked.

*Rainbow spotted at the first day before we start our work.

*Photo taken from the place I worked.

*The photo was too blur to shows the happenings.

*Traffic Jam during the festival.

Every night, we were at the same place for our job. And it's hard for us to promote the Celcom stuff because this festival is not same as PC Fair. For PC Fair, everyone is going to buy something but for this festival, most of the people went there to walk around, eat and look for something interesting. And it's quite bored for us to doing the same things everynight. Luckily, there's some programmes arranged to attract customer such as live performance. Celcom invite local artist, the borneo headhunter, ERNESTO to perform at the fifth night. Although this is the first time I heard about ERNESTO, but he's quite popular in Sibu. May be some freinds in Kuching know him also. I recommend one of his song, "Seribu Satu", this song is nice and it's also the only song I like throughout his whole album "1001".

*The fans of ERNESTO, borneo headhunter.

*At least this help to increase some sales.

*ERNESTO, the one with long hair.

*Many people ask for his signature poster.

*Yeah!! Tat's Mr. Mat Cool from other booth.

During our last night at BCF, and also the time that we fight for our sales, part of the event area suddenly blackout. Although this situation last for 20 minutes, but it keep on happen for around 4 to 5 times. And this make us really bo xim because no customers at all. So, we just wait the time to pass.

*Can't do anything at all in this situation!!!

*Celcom Promoter with the "blue ears".

*Soi Zai and Roy!!! Looks scary or not??

*Me and Soi Zai!! Can you see a face behind us??

We worked 8 nights for the celcom roadshow in this Borneo Cultural Festival, but it's different stories during our days time. Every morning, we just go to our shop near night market there to train the new staff that just hired by boss.

*Smoking time!!!

*The face of "pek cek"!!!

After few days of training, we let them go to look for sales around the night market area, and we just stay at the office to wait for them. Sometimes, we also followed them so that we can know how's their attitude towards their job. And it's quite boring and tired also if we just stay at the office to wait for them to come back. When we feel bored, it's time to find something meaningless to do.

*Our new trained tattoo master, SOI ZAI!!!

*Don't know what the stupid things he draw. And guess who's hand is it??

*ROY and the tattoo!!!

Normally, we will be at shop from morning until 4.30pm. After that, we will go for dinner because the BCF is going to start on 6.00pm every evening. We mostly went to KFC for our dinner, the one located at Sibu Gateway because we always when that place to photostate our flyers. After dinner while we waiting for our flyers to be done, some of us spent our time at the park there.

*This one only know how to smoke!!!

*Roy with his chinese horoscope, "COW"!!

*Actually, I'm so pai seh when taking this photo because many people was looking at us.

We always doing the same things for this 9 days at Sibu. Every morning wake up, breakfast, office, lunch, office, dinner, BCF, supper then back to room. There's nothing much we can do when we're at Sibu because we were there for working purpose. Although there's something unhappy happen but we still have a lot of fun at Sibu and we also tried many delicious food which I mentioned my previous post, Sibu Again!!!
