This year’s Christmas Eve’s has not been anything special, it’s still the same old “5,4,3,2,1, let’s spray!”. People has already created a mess last year by throwing empty party spray can at the police and so it had been banned but still there’s people selling it, there’s people buying it, there’s people spraying around. Not me this year though. I don’t want to waste my money on this, I rather save up for something big or go for a big meal.
I went to karaoke in the afternoon with some friends. Then I went to Prangin Mall to collect my new computer’s hardware, back home for a bath and went to had steamboat with friends again. The last place to go was Gurney Plaza and that’s what the countdown place for me was. I’m still underage for anything at Upper Penang Road where all the clubs, bistro, pubs are and so just went to look around at Gurney Plaza/Gurney Drive, meet up with some school mate, class mate, tuition mate, mate.
There’s a stage set up at the alfresco area of Gurney Plaza, there’s live band and games were played. It’s a better place then what’s outside the road where the people trying to spray each other. All cafes were full, I can’t find a nice place to sit down to drink something nice and talk, so I just went around and say hi to everyone I know, they were like everywhere and we always got lost. Calls could be hardly made because of the weak signal and poor service line.
Some people were in G Hotel because that place is more quiet than outside but afterall, security came and asked all who were not the hotel residence to go out. I was in for a few minutes, out and thinking of going back but here came the security at the main entrance.
I saw a gang of people of the same style, emo and punkish at there too. I think it’s a Christmas gathering for them. I still don’t know what should I call them. Any idea?
Back to Persiaran Gurney or Gurney Drive, the street in front of the mall was very crowded with teenagers, youngster and people. It’s either holding a camera or a can of party snow spray, preparing and get ready to spray on anyone that caught their eyes on.
The people on the street didn’t really countdown like 5,4,3,2,1. It was like “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh…” and I only knew it was Christmas already as I was busy taking photos on the street. Then the people play with the party spray as if it was something holy. I was a victim too. It was banned but don’t know where the police were at that time. I think the crowds weren’t afraid of the police but instead it is the police that were afraid of them, there were like hundreds and hundreds of people on the street.
=) It’s not snowing.
I went for a movie later in the midnight, the premiere of The Spirit. Personally, I’ll say I like it but a lot of my friend says it’s boring. From what I’ve known, there’s some kids were arrested at around 1am for jumping on top of peoples car. They stopped the car, sprayed like crazy, shouted, screamed and in the end on the top of the car. It happens every year by the way.
