Hi-5 Surprise LIVE - The Review

It was a tiring trip for sure.. In fact I was still half-hearted when we started the journey. First off, the kids, minus Khaleeda and Neyna, were all fasting. And to top it off, I knew that it would be a really looong drive home, taking into account the long-holiday balik kampung rush. With all that at the back of my mind, we headed to Kota Keriangan in Ziezi's Wish anyways.

How to get to Arena of Stars? Just a friendly note here coz we were also driving around the top of the hill to get the best parking for a car filled with kids. We did not exactly wanted to walk a long way since they were fasting and all.. The Arena of Stars is within the same vicinity as the Genting Theme Park. So , find your Parking spot at the space marked for Theme Resort Hotel. Once you get to the lobby, the Arena of Stars will be staring right in front of your face. (i.e. adjacent entrance to the Theme park)

The kids were all psyched up, all armed with their hoodie to brace the chill. Going around and around the "mountain" Khaleeda vomitted a few , but she was OK thereafter and took a nap all the way up. We were there pretty early. Thankfully, the ride up was a breeze and it took us no time at all to get there.

Once we got in, the first stop was , of course, the merchandise store. Fallen victim, as usual, I bought some momentos from the show. (Kasi chan la, ticket masuk dah free, kan?) Jup-jup stuffed toy, Hi-5 fairy wings with skirt that Khaleeda wore immediately, Hi-5 cape and hair band which Khadra wore, 2 swimming bags and 2 of those character stuff that you could wave around. Puas hati.

The audience turn-out was really bad, though. Like tak sampai 200 pun in that massive space.. Oh well, better for us coz we got to move to a better spot once the show started. The highlight was definitely towards the end of it when they opened the gates to the VIP space and we all rushed to the front of the stage. Khaleeda and the rest had a ball dancing to her favourite song, "Monster Dance" and I caught the encore song on video. :)

At the end, I lifted Khaleeda up so that she gets to Hi-5 the casts in person and one of the girls even kissed her on the cheek.

My verdict? All the trouble was really berbaloi in my books. :)

Personally, I prefer the old cast.

Don't knowlah. Tak kenal maka tak cinta, kot. I really should give the new guys some time to grow on me, I guess. hihihihi
