World Cup Fever hits the world and it hits Malaysia pretty hard as well! Do we mind it? Not at all! Not a freaking chance! It is once every 4 years anyway!
Fuwa and Fengyi must be so confused. Anyway, just the last Saturday, I went for a World Cup event that was hosted by Astro at HongDae-Mun, One City, Subang. The house is fully packed with social influencers and I get to meet some people that I hadn’t seen in a long time and several regular close blogger friends. Other than that, the scene is pretty much packed with new blood bloggers.
Incredible atmosphere in HongDae-Mun and everyone is donned with their team jersey except for me. I just wore a Brazil shirt. It was due to the fact that I do not have a football jersey (plenty of basketball jerseys though) as I usually enjoy watches the game and not an avid supporter of any club or country. One might passes me off as someone who does not know anything about football usually and were quite surprised that I actually kept up with football news and matches.
Huge fluffy mascot at the event got more attention than anything in the event.
The 4 major apps from Astro that you must have for this World Cup.
There are a couple of activities going on during the event and most people are divided into several different teams. I am in team Spain and possible one of the least enthusiastic team around. I kid you not. We are just in the team to have fun and just trying to finish our task most of the time. Victory never crosses our mind at all.
One of the game – hitting the boards by kicking a small ball. I like how this statement sounds.
Match prediction using Astro’s Ola Football Predictor. We can actually predict the matches using the app as we watch any football match.
The photo opportunity. Joel actually gathered members who wore different jerseys for this epic photo.
Our emcees for today.
And our team is actually tied together with Germany and we seriously did not expect that at all. We ended up having to decide the winner by entering a quiz which we unfortunately lost. The other team is just too well knowledgable regarding football’s history unlike me. Kudos for my team members for making it this far though. Second place is still a very good place for me.
