Strangely there was no traffic jam along the way and getting a carpark lot was a breeze. By the time we arrived at the hotel, it was already 2000hrs. A bit later and we could have been locked out because the commander speech was about to start then. By the way...hotel pick for this year D&D...The Meritus Mandarin Hotel. A bit crampy I find and the seats that we got..Table 75..was at the right side corner of the room, which means we can only see the the left side of the stage. What a strain...And worst of all the speaker was right behind us..
But I enjoyed the performance. It was hell lot of fun..although we did not win anyting.. Not even the last prize of the lucky draw. Nasrun was very sporting and spontaneous...when he volunteered to go up on stage and the act that he put up..it was funny.. Nasrun..that clown or rather 'Chief One Stick Three Balls'..hee. The one who never act his age. The other performance with the horse..cow..coconut tree..villain..hero..maiden..it was cute too..how the cow mooos and how the horse gallops and neighs..
The food...didn't quite enjoy it. Not that because it is not nice...But because of my tooth that hurts, but that is another story.
The whole event ended about 11plus or so..No time to hang around for we have to work the next day. Work always spoil the fun doesn't it.

Before checking into the hotel, we went for lunch. The lunch there was nice, a lot of varieties to choose from. But the place was kind of small to accomodate hundreds of us. A lucky draw was conducted at the restaurant. And my name was picked!! - but for a mere $20 worth of alarm clock. Pathetic isn't it.....
We then visted the Chocolate Boutique..where all the chocolate there cost a bomb. Afterwhich, we headed to take a ride up the KL Ferris Wheel..The Eye...which was absolutely capital B O R I N G. There was no view to begin with although there was a lake near it. We didn't have to chalk up any $$, so what the heck. Instead of enjoying the view, the 6 of us...comprising of 3 married couples, ended up shifting around the seats, taking photos of ourselves.
What I love best during the trip was SHOPPING!!!!! Bought for myself 3 pairs of flip flops, 3 belts, 2 sweaters, 1 polo T-shirt, 1 T-shirt, 1 sleeveless shirt & 2 bags. I am a bag and flip-flop fanatic...
