Where's The Party 2 by Carlsberg

Merry Christmas everybody. Just woke up from my sleep after working the whole day on Christmas eve and I'm feeling energetic! Hence, I thought I update my blog a bit.

The much anticipated party themed 'Where's the Party?' by Carlsberg was back again for the 2nd time after their 1st highly successful grand party earlier this year. I tell you, the 1st one was the best party I ever had. Despite me not being in a party mood back then, but yet I had a great time and due to my hectic work life earlier this year, my blogging life came to an almost standstill.

So from the lavish spending on the 1st party, I wasn't expecting much from this 2nd time around. In fact, I wasn't even expecting them to have the 2nd one so soon!

We carpooled to the meeting point which was at Shah Alam Stadium on a cloudy Saturday afternoon.



Soon after that, the sudden rain ensued and we counted our blessings for arriving in a dry fashion.

The convoy of buses ready to depart to the secret location:



Pretty soon, we departed off to the location but I was a bit disappointed to learned that our joyride ended in just 5 minutes because the destination was merely at the Carlsberg brewery in Shah Alam. Nonetheless, reminding myself of never to compare it with the 1st party, I hope they have something interesting in store there besides the endless supply of Carlsberg beer.

The welcoming party once arrived:



which quickly dispersed to a shaded area to continue the welcome when it started to rain again. LOL.

Since the time was already 4pm plus and most had not eaten or had an early lunch, most of us proceeded straight down to a street full of stalls distributing food around:



There were popcorn, cotton candies, Nasi Lemak, hot dogs and burgers, kaya balls, satay, nuggets, ice creams and of course Carlsberg beer.

Due to intermittent rain, I proceeded to seek shelter at tents instead of looking around at what games there are to play after filling my stomach even though they did distribute out raincoats and umbrellas.

A little later close to 5.30pm, the sky started to clear and that's when I took the opportunity to have a look around.

It was basically a Carlsberg carnival or fun fair since there were rides like ferris wheel and pirate ships,



and many carnival types of games setup all around. This here is fishing rubber duckies to find those that has the Carlsberg logo underneath:



I find this to be the most interesting, a balloon hoisting you sky high:



Didn't manage to see a lot due to shortness in time and bad weather hence making it difficult to redeem much once points are tallied for redemption.

Just like the last time around, the much received massage area was setup too, but I discovered it a little too late:



When night falls, at 8pm, it's time for the performances to start off:



I stayed around a bit more before taking the shuttle bus back to the stadium to collect my car so that I can head on home.
