My Very First Snow In KL

I am sure you have all heard about rumours that KL was going to snow a few weeks back. It was announced on radio and created quite a stir. Of course we all know that it's ridiculous! How can a tropical country have snow falling?

Well, I experienced snowing for real in KL for the very first time last week. No I am not kidding : )

OK, that is not exactly true. I have actually experienced snow before in KL. It was a few years back. Serious.

After QuaChee put up on his blog a photo of snow falling down on KLCC, I was really amused. Snowing in KL? It was downright ridiculous!



I think I'll believe a story about UFO sightings in KL much more than about snow falling. Haha! Now of course he added the 'snow' to the photo!

Well, last Tuesday, I witnessed a unique phenomenon that would certainly topped all the doomsday hype generated by the movie 2012. It was snowing in KL! Don't believe? Look at the photo I captured!



I can assure you this is not some 'trick' photo. It's really snowing! For the very first time in KL!

OK, who am I kidding? Haha!

If you don't already know, it's snowing in Pavilion KL at 8pm every night till Boxing Day! And of course, it's fake snow! If you believed it was real snow, then I am quite sure you believe in Santa Claus. Although there's really nothing wrong with that. Haha!

When I heard that Pavilion KL was going to rain snow, I just had to go there to have a look! I braved the traffic jam just to be there but believe me, it was worth it!

'Cos I didn't just get to see snow (even if it's fake!) but I also bumped into who else but....



QuaChee himself!!

Yes! So I quickly snapped a photo of him, although that Christmas tree behind him looked like a tall hat on his head! LOL!

It's nice meeting you, QuaChee! : )

Ok, let us start from the beginning of my snow fall adventure, shall we?

After driving through traffic jam on the Federal Highway from Petaling Jaya, I reached Pavilion KL at about 6.30pm. It was about to get dark soon, so I quickly parked my car and hurried to the front entrance of the prestigious shopping mall.

And what did I see? Nice cute glowing reindeers!





The reindeers were pulling a beautiful carriage although Santa Claus was nowhere to be seen!





Nice glowing trees lined the street.





Tall beautiful Christmas trees welcomed visitors to the mall.





Since there was still half an hour left before the scheduled snow fall at 8pm, I went inside the mall to snap more pictures.



It was a Royale Christmas at Pavilion! There seemed to be a band performing music.



I did not stay long to watch as it was soon time for the snow to fall! I heard that the Minister Of Tourism YB Dato' Dr Ng Yen Yen would be there.

So I went out of the mall and positioned myself at the best spot to snap some photos of the snow fall and maybe even a photo of the minister herself.



There was already a huge crowd waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the minister and the countdown to the snow fall.



Dr Ng Yen Yen arrived not long after but I did not manage to take a photo of her. There was a huge crowd surging forward and the guards prevented us from moving towards the middle of the walkway to make way for the minister and her entourage.

Oh, well. The highlight was the snow and not the minister, so I was OK with that!

The emcee invited the crowd to start the countdown. It was fun!

10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 .....

We all looked up.

5 - 4 - 3 .....

I was practically shouting aloud and getting my camera ready!

2 - 1 .....!



I could see snow shooting out from the sides of the building!



Snow was raining down!



It was practically snowing in KL! Yippee!!



Of course it was just foam and not real snow, but who cares?



Everyone was busy snapping away!



At the beginning of this post, I mentioned that I have seen snow falling in KL before. Yes, I did and it was at Starhill Gallery a few years back. Now it's Pavilion's turn. And it was cool!



While the snow rained down, there was a performance going on. People were dancing!





They seemed to be enjoying dancing in the snow!





Now if you have missed the snow at Pavilion, do not worry. There are still lots of chance for you to catch it as Pavilion KL would be snowing every night at 8pm till Boxing Day on 26th December!

    Wow..snowing everynight at 8pm till Boxing Day! I must visit Pavilion to see for myself soon.

    Btw, I have heard from a friend who had lived in the US that encountering real snow isn't a great thing. There are major hassles in life. I am grateful for warmer weather anytime! :)

    Whoa! So festive! Very nice pictures, Foong. After reading about it in the papers the other day, I actually plan on visiting the place but have yet to.

    Good that you were there before nightfall, so you got to experience the different feel of the place.

    Imagine bumping into QC. What a coincidence. So, did you have dinner/a drink or something?

    mei teng, yes go visit Pavilion and snap some snow photos for us!

    Me too! I prefer warmer weather! It's nice to enjoy snow once in a while though, but I don't think I like to stay in places that have snow fall! : )

    ladyviral, I didn't catch the snow in KLCC. Are they having it this year?

    December 15, 2009 at 2:01 AM
  44. foongpc said...

    anonymous, do I know you? You seem to have been following my posts for some time by the way you commented here.

    Guess what? Everyone is free to comment here. Just like I'm free to blog however I like cos may I remind you - THIS IS MY BLOG. I do what I like with my blog.

    If I do not want to put my photo here, it's my right. If I do not want to post about China trip and post about the snow in KL instead, it's my choice. You don't like it? No problem. You can leave anytime. And yet, you still stay around and read my blog. Perhaps you like my blog after all! : )

    As for snapping QuaChee's picture, well to me, he's a friend and of course he's a celebrity in the making! Don't you know? Duh!

    And of course QuaChee allowed me to post his photo here. Because I asked him. So you see, unlike you, I have very good manners and I have utmost respect for others.

    Just because I don't post a photo on my blog does not mean I'm a big shot. If that's the case, then there are many big shot bloggers around!

    Of course I have the right to set the rules when I invite people to travel with me. If you don't like the rules, just don't travel with me. It's that simple!

    As for the poem, any smart, rational and understanding person will know it's all a joke, and it is in fact, a tribute to my blogger friends. I doubt any of my blogger friends are hurt by my poem but if they are, then they miss the whole point of the whole poem, which is really my tribute to them!

    Calling someone fat or loony may not be good practice in real life, but in the context of my poem, I think it's acceptable especially when it's meant to be humorous. If you find the poem insulting, my advice is go get a life!

    For the record, I am not the first person who started this "comment spamming". And even if I am, what's wrong with it? I can't force people to like or dislike it, and if some readers are influenced to comment this way, that's their right and their choice to do so. In any case, I think it's fun to comment this way and not at all retarded!

    If I like to put "First!" when I'm the first commenter on any blog, that's really up to me! I find it totally fun! And to me, blogging is meant to be fun! If you don't like it, that's just too bad. Sue me!!

    So you think I hype up the fake snow and pretend to be all excited about it? Well, then you must be a real pro at reading my mind! In actual fact, I did not hype up anything and I was genuinely excited about the snow. But if I really did hype it up and pretended, so what? Are you such an amateur and you know nothing about blogging?

    I really don't think I'm so full of myself. But you can say what you want of course. And if I really want to be so full of myself, why not? Again, IT'S MY BLOG, so sue me.

    Btw, thanks for comment spamming on my blog. I like it! : )

    Surprisingly, you don't practise what you preach! And that's just the kind of person you are - shamelessly hiding behind an anonymous name and throwing insults like that. Have a good day.

    My first ever experience with snow was in an amusement park in Phils where they had that snow and ice experience then next one was in china but of course another artificial snow. It was in window of the world and me and my siblings had some fun there sliding down and playing. No snow in our area here but lately so so cold that everything gets frosted in the morning. Had to scrape ice on the car. FIL thinks of going to the mountains to take us to the snow but I am not too interested... baby might not like the cold.

    Wah the decoration in Pavillion is really nice! As for the snow, I have experienced the same before in Midvalley megamall too.. but I didn't quite like the fact that the foam will be sticky once it gets to your body. :P Also, I had to be careful not to let the foam touch my camera lens!

    lina, haha, an anonymous commenter here is saying I'm retarded for spamming comments. And he's spamming me! Read his spams above! What do you think of him/her?

    lina, ooh! Sorry about the slow internet! I hate it when it is slow like that! I rather switch off the computer and do something else like watching TV! : )

    hahaha foong that made me really laugh! I honestly get to enjoy that blog spamming only on those blogs I know who would appreciate it and those people we refer to as "blogger friends". It's rare to catch people with different timezones so it gets more fun interacting that way. Leave him/her be.

    another post up for lina now? I was emailing my fam and chatted with my sis that's why i haven't started my blog hop =P

    yes it was freezing and our lips were getting so dry and fingers getting blue! haha

  103. Rose Belle said...

    Wow, that anynomous commenter really had some steam to let loose about you! You took it like a pro and allowed his/her comments to be posted. I read from another blog a few months from a commenter who used his real identity and he was just f**king and sh**ting about the blog owner. Wonder why people feel the need to leave nasty comments like this? If they don't like the blogger, then don't visit, right?

  104. Rose Belle said...

    The reindeers, Christmas trees, and other decors look so beautiful! Better than what I've seen so far in the California! You guys really bring in the Christmas joy and all :) What was the snow made out of by the way? Was it styrofoam? We don't get snow in San Francisco either so last year when it rained ice, I got so excited. Well, maybe with the global climate change, San Francisco and KL might get snow one day.

    ayie, yes I enjoy spamming comments - I guess not everyone enjoys them!

    Wow! Freezing until fingers turn blue? I hate that!! : )

  110. foongpc said...

    rose belle, thanks for your kind comments! I guess the anonymous commenter is having some personal issues. Normally people who leave these kind of comments are suffering from some personal problems they can't handle and they take it out on others : )

    So we are more festive here in KL? Haha! The snow is actually liquid foam, not styrofoam. I really doubt KL will snow one day but then again, who knows? LOL!

    December 16, 2009 at 11:49 PM
  111. foongpc said...

    fufu, yeah I know you are experiencing real snow in Germany. Enjoy!! Haha!

    lina, haha! We both like spamming don't we? So what if we are called "retarded"? Who cares right? : )

    You want a ride to Pavilion? Aiya, ask Zaini lah. Surely it's not a problem since it's at night?

    Make reindeer fly? Haha! That would be magical indeed! Sure win award and get into world news like that : )

    Eh, where you going next year? Please don't tell me it's Japan again!!!

    No, still haven't got travel partner. maybe people scared to travel with me cos so many restrictions as mentioned by the anonymous commenter. LOL! But it's OK, I think I prefer to have one whole room to myself! : )

    December 17, 2009 at 11:45 PM
  128. lina said...

    @foong,
    He won't take me lah! :(

    What do you? You think I'll go to Japan again or not? :D
    Zaini said not to have my hopes too high. Working in a bank is not stable anymore now. :( Maybe we'll just head to Genting and experience some fake snow instead. LOL

    December 18, 2009 at 2:28 PM
  129. foongpc said...

    lina, so it's Japan again! OMG!!! Genting? How to compare with Japan? You will surely be disappointed with Genting! Haha!
