ClickStartPlay post HobbyCon cum Christmas Party

Welcome to another edition of super slow news... too lazy to add anything here these past few months, but this entry is a must.

ClickStartPlay organised a post-Hobbycon and Christmas party in Hyatt last Sunday (23 Dec). Around 30-odd people turned up, forum members as well as non-forum members.

Yeah, one of the heads was pixelised on the request of the owner of that head.

Anyway, before the main party started, there was a bit of organising to do, but who said it shouldn't be fun? Here's some of the members getting a bit of fun playing twister:

As promised, one of the forum members brought a copy of the newspaper that featured HobbyCon 2007 inside:

There were some fun activities planned for the night, among them was charades, the folding newspaper competition and a Christmas gift exchange.

Here's the newspaper folding competition, where 2 people in one team had to stand in an area dictated by the newspaper they were standing on. Each round, the paper was folded in half, so the team had to think of creative ways to keep themselves inside the newspaper without stepping out:

Some forummers brought their Nintendo DS Lite to play, and they set themselves up in a corner of the room to do just that:

Charades, where the team members have to pass the message to the next member without using words, just body language, and the last one has to guess the word:

All sorts of antics by the players:

keong and shadow

bobidom and doridori

bakaneko and gf

rina and ling

ling and rob

Sometimes the message gets lost in transition...
rina flying kiss

lee flying kiss

dxtremex flying kiss

Then all hell breaks loose:

WHAT U SAY?
hellfire

There was even a bit of drama involving Santa Rina and shiVER, which almost turned out into a Christmas Slay, heh heh... :

OK, here's the update with the last of the pictahs.

Watched Enchanted

Hehe, went to GSC downtown to catch the latest Disney flick titled Enchanted.

It tells the story of a fairytale princess named Giselle who, on her wedding day, gets pushed down a well and ends up in New York in the real world. You can read most of it in the link above.

For those of you who just want a light movie to chill out the brain cells, this would fit the bill. It was funny, plenty of songs throughout.

Hobbycon 2007

Pooh Pooh, plenty of dust here. Almost 2 months I haven't updated anything in this blog.

Anyways, last week I attended Sabah's first Hobby Convention, or shortened to Hobbycon at Kompleks Asia City (KAC). The organisers were from a local online forum called clickstartplay. It was held on the 8th and 9th of December, but I was too busy to go on the first day.

Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the talking. I'll interject whenever there is a need. :D

Earlier on I was sniping from the top:
