Waterski and Wakeboard Malaysian Nationals 2016

Posted by on Aug 14, 2016 in Events

 This weekend, Putrajaya is hosting the Waterski and Wakeboard Malaysian Nationals. I had some time yesterday, and my friends and I decided to go take a look. The place was quite difficult to find – we nearly gave up when we found the normal lakeside galleries empty. The lake was super quiet – only two groups of people in kayaks were on the water. Then, a guard in the Waterski and Wakeboard t-shirt turned up, and showed us where to go. The site can be approached with a gravel road at the side. Only two banners marked the entrance. The competition this year saw a lot of entries from Malaysia and Indonesia. There were also a spattering of competitors from Singapore, Hong Kong, and even one from Germany. I only managed to get pictures of the wakeboard competitions, as I was still assessing the place during the waterski displays. It was still an eye-opener, seeing all these tricks...

The City of Entertainment

Posted by on Jun 19, 2016 in Travel

  I was quite young when I first went up to Genting. In those days, there was so much to do. The outdoor theme park was terrific. I still remember a trip in my teens – the outdoor lake was great, and there were paddling boats to be rented. That was my last proper trip to Genting. My few trips to Genting as an adult were one or two days’ affairs – either for a work retreat, or a few hours’ for a show. Revisiting Genting Highlands after so long was a bit of a surprise – the place has changed so much. The earlier lake has mostly been drained away. In the place of the outdoor theme park, is the First World Plaza. Still, there are benefits – more shops, a cinema, and the upcoming Fox World theme park. And the weather’s great!...
