My experience at H-Artistry 2014

Hey all! I'm back with another story to tell. I recently headed for H-Artistry at MIECC on the 18th November 2014. My last Artistry was back in 2011, as I've missed out every artistry last 2 years due to my travelling around Woohoo! Not that i regret that though :)

I was given a pair of VIP invites (Zone V), so yeah I went for H-Artistry, it was good, but there were areas that could be perfected. I arrived with Eileen at MIECC to find out, there's not enough parking. This is due to the management taking one whole floor for Taxi Parking. 

The best part? It wasn't even full at the time we left (about 12am that night), and also the security was really rude when I asked "Where can I park?" They were like. "PERGIH DARI SINI, PARKING LUAR (Get out of here, Park somewhere outside)" really loudly when he was just next to my car. Honestly I felt like I didn't want to go at all already when that happened.

But well since it was a long time since I met my friends that were attending, I endured and headed over to Mines to park my car. It took us a good 20 minutes just to find a parking. Honestly I do not mind the walk, but you know, Girls wear heels, and walking on uneven road outside ain't a great start of the night

Heading up to the registration counters, it was another downer as everyone had to line up in a single line for security checks. Why couldn't they open up more security lines for VIP'S like the one back in 2011? So we had to queue with a whole lot of other people and we could only proceed to our designated counter. Didn't feel really great about it

As went into the hall, It's the usual mixing areas, and a big white curtain box right in the middle. It was named as the H-Artistry Experience. putting our hopes up, we queued up for 15 minutes to get to the entrance. We were given some earphones and headed into the box structure which was empty inside. I first thought it would be a Silent Party with some part of projection mapping/augmented reality experience, but to our disappointment it was just a synchronized light show. Just lights shooting around based on the music we're listening on the headphones

The light show


We then entered the main hall, The hall is impressive as usual, and I really love how they made cube LED screens this year. We headed over to our "V" zone which is right in front of the stage, but it was pretty crowded over there. After maneuvering in and out, we finally made it to the front to meet our friends 

We stayed for MKTO & Tinie Tempah's performance which was great, and enjoyed some cocktails by the side

All in all, I would say that it was good, but there were a few things they could have improved on. I'll wait for next year's to come and hope it'll be better!

Europe Trip: Liverpool & the longest town name known to me

 photo DSC_0205_zps48489dd5.jpg

Hey Everyone! I'm finally back in Malaysia, and its busy hectic as I've taken 3 weeks off work, and there's plenty to be done when i returned. Finally have the time to share more on my Europe Trip, so this post is the continuation from Chester.

After visiting Chester, my family & I decided to take a train up to Liverpool! Now all you Liverpool fans can shout YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE!! It was about 45 minutes away, and it was only about 8 pounds to travel by train.

Them Train Tracks

We were there for only a day, but I guess it was alright as we were mainly there for Liverpool FC & The Beatles. When we arrived at Liverpool main train station, We hopped on a bus to visit Anfield Stadium! A must for all Liverpool FC Fans. It was about a 20 minute Bus ride up and it costs only 4 Pounds for a bus day pass

After Anfield Stadium, we headed into the city itself. Mom & Uncle Mike was pretty interested in The Beatles "famous" sites, since the group was founded in Liverpool. We started walking around the City in search for these famous attractions!

After a day in Liverpool, we drove down to some famous places in Wales. We stayed a night at Llandudno which is a famous beach site. Its a really long bay which is a real great place to unwind. Just imagine, walking on the "rocky" beach from on end to another, and chilling on the pier with an ice cold beer, Bliss!

At the end of our trip, we headed to a place that tourist love to joke about because of the length of its name! The name of the town is:

llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

Crazy long yeah? the meaning of the name is actually: 
St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the fierce whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave

Some people really have no idea how to name a town! Haha! But well pretty much its just a very small town with a shopping outlet, but a photo opportunity is a must!

Crazy long name!

That's how you pronounce it


Thats pretty much it for this post! I'll be updating soon about my final destination, NEW YORK! soon! Stay Tuned!
