Thriller Tribute

FInding a victim?

I have been envious with my friends all over the world who get to shoot and dress up in weird characters. Unfortunately costume and being weird isn’t that popular over here.

That’s when I heard about Thrill the World 2009 at Shah Alam. Thrill the World is a simultaneous event across the globe done as a tribute to Michael Jackson and this time it involved 37 countries. I had no idea how to dance to Thriller but I knew I was definitely going.

Unfortunately for me everytime they had a practice before and after I got back from India, I couldn’t attend coz I had other things and events to go to. We were also busy getting ready for our open house the same evening. They even had a session the evening before the 25th of October but since I had to be at 2 functions at the same time, I figured I’d just have to learn it myself. So that night I checked out the official site and found this super easy breakdown videos on dancing the Thriller. So there I was in the middle of the night learning the moves. I quickly shred one of my tops for my zombie costume and tried to sleep.

Getting ready He killed Santa Zombie

Weirdly I couldn’t so with barely an hour of sleep woke up around 6.15 am and got ready to go. My only concern was that we’d get lost finding the place since it was in confused land the one we call Shah Alam.

Kerv and I finally found the place and got super excited to see fellow zombies getting ready. Just as I finish my makeup it starts to rain. So everyone gathered into the one roofed place just as the organizers arrived with a yummy bucket of blood.

All the zombies lapped up the blood, some even rolled on the floor to not waste any blood. Minutes before 8.30am, we gathered at the field even though it was still raining. Most of us wanted one more practice session but we didn’t have time for it.

As complicated as Thriller looks surprisingly its neither tiring nor hard to do. But remembering the sequence is another thing. Lol I think I was 2 seconds behind everyone for most of the steps. I was diligently following the bandaged mummy at the front ;p

We finished the first round and everyone wanted to dance again so we had a second session. Then TV3 decided to finally turn up and since I didn’t want to be on TV and I wanted to shoot the dancing, I opted out. Right after we ended up singing MJ’s Heal the World. ;)))

Hungry for food most of the zombies headed to a mamak in town for breakfast. We actually got lost finding the place.

Thanks to the organizers for organizing this, I had an amazing time. I hope this becomes an annual affair and not just a one time thing. One note though next time please draw a map to the location, quite a number of ppl got lost or never found the place and had to turn back. The Google map was pretty useless.

Baggage woes

Baggage woes

Before I start my stories on India, I’m going to tell you the last drama we had at LCCT. We were waiting for baggage when two of our bags arrived at the same time. So I headed for the bigger bag while mom headed for the smaller one. Once we collected our bags we got out, got a taxi, called home and headed back. We got back and were busy yakking when mom decided we should start unpacking about an hour after arriving – groan.

There we were taking out things from one of the bags and sarees we hadn’t purchased began appearing. We dug further only to find a silver lamp inside the bag. Our bags had somehow mixed up with someone elses, we quickly searched the whole bag for a name or address but got nothing. All we got were more things that seemed for a wedding. We panicked, what if the wedding was in 2 days or even worse tomorrow??

We had to find the owners. While scanning the bags we realized our bags had different codes. We started calling Air Asia enquiry to get the baggage section. Alas we kept getting forwarded to different sectors but the lost and found section.
Then I tried the Sales hotline only to be told I should head back to the airport.

Then my brother found LCCT’s number and from there we were transferred to a few places before someone finally gave us the Lost and Found department. I was connected to Mr Vicky. I quickly explained my situation and told him the urgency of the situation. In a matter of minutes he confirmed my information and found me the other persons information and number.

Unfortunately the number couldn’t be contacted and I was getting a fax line on the fixed line. So I called Mr Vicky again and he game me another number to try. That number worked but ended up at what was the persons travel agents house. After explaining my situation to the wife, she promised to contact her husband in India and get back to me.

She kept her promise and contacted her husband who then contacted his clients in Malaysia. The family finally called us and it seems they were looking for us as well. We made arrangements to meet at a halfway point and we had been right the old couple were here for their son’s marriage. The good thing was it was a month away and not the next day and we just got invited to that wedding ;)

Without the help from AirAsia staff Mr Vicky we wouldn’t have managed to locate them. Thanks a lot for your help and incase anyone needs the LCCT Lost and Found department’s number : 03-87776604.

A suggestion to Airasia please add a lost and found section on your enquiry number and update your sales staff on the right instructions.

So that’s one drama ;p more to come later.
