Flow Rider Wipe Out @ 1 Utama

I went to Flow Rider at 1 Utama yesterday evening without preparation but expected one outcome: to get wiped out in every attempt! haha

Alyssa and I signed up for 2 hours but we stayed for just slightly more than an hour. The fun came to an end when Alyssa dislocated her left shoulder, and we had to drive to the nearest hospital.

We spent about 2 hours at the hospital, and shucks didn’t think we’d be here. Anyways despite the mishap, it was fortunate that not only I had a clear schedule (unlike last month), because I took Grab over that I didn’t have to worry about my own car when I drove hers. PLUS insurance got her hospital fee covered, so that’s that.

We’ll be back again!

P.S. Just woke up today, and wow my body aches. That must had been a full body workout, it’s been a long time since I last experienced that.

Escape PJ @ Paradigm Mall

Early this year, I wanted to go to Escape PJ when I learned they opened very nearby (Paradigm Mall is literally a walk away) but came fake pandemic measure MCO 2.0.

Now that most of Malaysia has reopened again – and so did Escape PJ – I checked out the place this weekend. If you buy your tickets online, you can save anywhere from 10% to 20% on the fee depending on how early you book.

The experience is worth it, and even though we’ve spent a good 3 hours here, we did not get to try out every obstacle course. Partly due to the weekend crowd as well.

Will definitely come back a second time!

Pandemik Palsu?

So it’s been almost a year since Malaysia enacted its first lock down of sorts a.k.a. Movement Control Order, joining almost every other country worldwide in combating Covid-19.

Let’s see…

In recent weeks, Malaysia has been recording an average of 3,000 to 4,000 cases daily. My question is: who are these people, and how did they qualify as a ‘case’?

Malaysia surpassed China’s record of 88,000 Coronavirus cases in December 16, 2020 – why are we not hearing much from these infected? That’s around the size of a BERSIH 3.0 rally.

And China, one of the most populous countries in the world, successfully reduced their cases to near-zero – are we really supposed to buy that?

There’s more than 100 Million Covid cases worldwide with a 2.2 Million death toll recorded – while it is a huge figure, but on a global scale that’s actually ‘a drop in the ocean’ when you compare to a world population of 7.7 BILLION people.

Even before a vaccine is produced, the recovery rate is already 99.6% (by most estimates) across the board. So how does this qualify as an existential threat, exactly, that it necessitated extended lock downs one after another?

Yes, the lock downs. Are they achieving anything worthwhile? It was two weeks at first… then it become four, six, eight weeks. And nearly a year later, we are back where we started. How long more do people and government want to do this, at the expense of the economy and livelihood?

And all these infected… were they not wearing mask? Didn’t wash their hands? Not ‘social distancing’? (that’s a f*cking stupid word btw, along with ‘new normal’)

Some public figures like Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hanks, Edward Cullen, and Donald Trump tested positive for Covid… why are they not dead yet? In fact, they don’t look sick at all, with The Rock coming on an Instagram video as if it was just a bad diarrhea. Know what sick is? When leaving your bed is already a challenge.

So I am thinking, either

(A) Covid-19 is fake Ok it’s not fake, it is REAL

or (B) It is real, but it is greatly exaggerated and world leaders are just taking advantage of it

I am more inclined to believe the latter.

Because if it’s truly as deadly as it is claimed, the politicians will be the first to cover their asses. I perceive them to be a cowardly lot. Yet they’re crossing states, attending gatherings, and not even wear their mask (properly) Is this the behavior of someone afraid of danger?

And are people more afraid of incurring compound fines or the virus itself?

Could this be… pandemik palsu?

34!

34 years. Wawasan 2020.

For years I’ve been imagining what I’d be like and doing by this time. Not quite what I thought.

That there would be a global pandemic this year.

That a lot of businesses would be affected or go out like never before.

That it would also be a very challenging time even for me.

That I would be forced to do a lot of things differently than ever before.

But I believe that tough times don’t last; tough people do.

P.S. Spent the day shooting more videos in the office for Facebook Ads, YouTube Ads and sales videos. With a lot of places closed anyway, what else is there to do?

FRIM Skywalk

Checked out the new Forest Skywalk at FRIM!

The new skywalk attraction opened since Merdeka Day, which is just less than a month ago. Even though we arrived early at 8 in the morning, we waited for 1 1/2 hours as the queue was long – if you want to avoid the crowd, pick weekdays.

Oh, and the whole “social distancing” BS procedure dampened the experience (shouldn’t it be called physical distancing?)

However I still think there will be a permanent limit to the number of people climbing the skywalk at any given time because of the limited space and structure integrity.

The skywalk experience was about 20 minutes. The 50m height attraction was full (and limited spots too), but the 15m height route was quite enough. In fact, it elevates up to around 30+ meters in height, and with the 50m height just being climbing upwards with nowhere else to walk on, the base 15m height route was quite enough. You’ll know if you go.
