Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

So some of you might have heard of Project Alpha by now, but for the rest of you who didn’t realize this blog owner has somehow managed to get on Full HD videos shot by professional camera crews. Though stranger things have happened, this is still pretty amazing, at least when it comes to yours truly.

Here’s the very short version of the story and what has happened last January.

Jojo, Cheesie, the crews, Kim & Gareth, and Cheesie pretending to be a diva

So our shooting location was chosen to be the Lost World of Tambun at Ipoh. To be honest, I had initially anticipated it to be boring. What’s with this lost world thing? Is it another tiny amusement park that couldn’t make it?

We made our way to Tambun, and to get the day started, we stopped by the very yummylicious dimsum place that is Ming Court at Ipoh. (my all time fav dimsum place)

i had to put on make up :S
and they put make up on me, wtflux :S

But as it turned out, Lost World of Tambun was this huge amusement park that has a huge water park, lots of attractions, hot spring, a petting zoo, free running horses, and even live Siberian tigers!

It was an amazing location to do the shoot and I think the #porkgang should seriously plan a day trip there one of these days.

We did quite a lot of our shootings at the petting zoo, and even managed to sorta cured the snake phobia of Jojo & Cheesie at the same time though the latter screamed like Shrek on speed on burning charcoal when I first put the lovely albino python on her shoulder. (check out the video below)

Gareth and I were able to take some lovely shots when the girls finally settled down with the poor animal.

i was in the serpentarium!

I somehow volunteered myself to go into the Serpentarium and almost got myself bitten by a reticulated python, but it was all fun and my Chinese zodiac namesake didn’t do me any harm. We also visited the raccoons, the monkey that bit Cheesie’s blackberry, and the really amazing Siberian tigers. They were so awesomely magnificent.

Guess I shall save writing more cos it’ll take forever, watch these videos instead!
