New Years Eve Celebration @ The Curve – 31 Decembe 2007

I was torn between Midzone Countdown 2008, Ruums at Kuala Lumpur and Amos Ho’s party at his apartment. In the end, Ping and I decided to spend our new years eve at a club by the name Scarlet @ the Curve shopping centre.
As expected, Ping and I were stuck in a jam heading toward the Curve. We eventually settled for a car park far away from the Curve, which is around 2 KM away.
Kiang and gf on the other hand had to detour from Kuala Lumpur as many roads to Kuala Lumpur were closed for the New Year celebration. The four of us suffered the similar fate, we had to walk around 2KM to the Curve and were drenched with sweat by the time we reached Curve.

Ping & Kiang warming up!

The Curve
We were greeted with bad news by waterleg that Scarlet is full and unable to accommodate more guest. We had to settle by the roadside to watch fireworks.
Then one of us suggested that we buy beer to celebrate to occasion. Ping, waterleg, Kiang and gf and I set out to brave the sea of people at the Curve. However, upon reaching the main entrance of Cineleisure (another shopping centre next to the Curve), we were halted by the sight of “artificial snow” fight. Kids were seen running around with cans which emits snow like foam. I quickly grabbed my camera to snap pictures of them

But just as I put my camera down, waterleg, Ping, Kiang and gf were no where to be seen.
However, instead of looking of them, I had to rush into Cineleisure as the smell was overwhelming and I was almost chocking. I went back to the roadside and found Kiang and gf sitting there. They too had to make a detour due to the ‘snow fight’.
Few minutes before my clock struck 12am, Ping and waterleg came back with 5 big bottles of Skol beer. HEROES!!
We didn’t have any bottle opener with us. Ping used his teeth to open 5 bottles. It was like Shaolintiger kungfu.

As my clock struck 12am, the fireworks displayed started – at 1 Utama, another shopping centre, 2km away from us!! The entire Curve was dumbstruck. No fireworks display at the Curve???

Fireworks @ 1 Utama
After the fireworks ended at 1 Utama, there was still no sign of fireworks at the Curve. Suddenly, fireworks exploded above our head. The Curve’s firework display was 10 minutes late!

But the wait was all worth it. It was magnificent. After all the trouble we went through, it was well worth it.
Yet another memorable New Years Eve, I’m all set for 2008!

New Years Eve 2005

Most of my friends decided to have a quiet new year this year. But I wanted to see fireworks hence I took the risk of being stuck in a jam and headed straight to KLCC.

But it only took me 10 minutes to reach KL. I parked my car in my office and walked towards KLCC. The roads weren’t jam at all. I guess it’s because of the heavy rain prior to the event.

There was some sort of free rave sponsored by Celcom, a telephone service provider. International DJs, Filterheadz and Above and Beyond were spinning.

Backstage. KLCC park is behind the wall. Look at the amount of people!

Since the rave was free, all sort of people ranging from tudong clad girls to foreigners attended the rave. Some were standing on the dance floor like they’re watching a show but some understood the whole concept of rave, hence they danced.

DJ Blink was already spinning when I arrived. The crowd seems responsive. But one of the Filterheadz boys commented that the crowd was a little bit cold. Quite true, I could only see the front row and the middle row of the crowd dancing to the music.

However, as soon as Filterheadz took over, the crowd started dancing. They started off with some house and moved to techno. Filterheadz were great!

17 Seconds before 2006!

As soon as the clock hit 12AM, fire works sprung out from the bushes. The first few blasts were great but soon the remaining fireworks were covered by the thick smoke. At last, fireworks!!

The crowd celebrating year 2006


Above and Beyond took over an hour later. The crowd were responding well. In response to that, the organizers threw loads of glow sticks to the crowd.

The rave ended at 2AM.

Unfortunately, 2006 doesn’t seem to be significant to me. It’s just another year. Despite the negativity, I hope for a good year!

Happy New Year everyone!

best new years eve ever!

New Year Eve 2003 @ Mo Far Core, Bar Code, Phileo Damansara.
Despite the exorbitant cover charge, Mo Far Core was well worth it. It has been one of the best New Year eves that I’ve ever been to. The music was absolutely great, thanks to Bass Agents, a group of DJ who play nothing but hard music. Beer was on free flow. Chicks were abundant due to free entrance for girls. The club was small too. It made the entire scene like an underground rave. And the best of all, almost everybody knows everybody.

The rave didn’t go as smoothly though. Free flow was interrupted couple of times because they ran out of beer (The fact that loads of people were walking with a jug of beer as their cup solves the mystery why we ran out of beer). Then power supply was interrupted twice. It was really a turn off.

The place was also a drug fest. While I was waiting for the toilet, 3 guys were openly snorting Ice. But that wasn’t fascinating enough. One of the guys who snorted Ice pissed for more than a minute. I wonder what he has drunk.

Despite the abundant amount of girls, I didn’t get to met many. Damn.
