We Love Asia 2013

Had a weekend of partying with the gang when I attended the We Love Asia Music Festival held on 6-7 September at the Sepang International Circuit. :) 

We got the weekend pass and attended both days of the event. It was my first time going to a music concert sort of event hence it was all new and exciting for me. For both days of the event, the sky was rather gloomy and looked as if it was about to rain at any minute. But fortunately for us, first day it didn't rain. Second day, it rained while we were partying (made it more fun yes!) and stopped long before the event ended so it was all good!

Outfit was super casual with my white top from Nichii and shorts

There were food stalls available on venue that provided sushi, burgers, froyos etc and also fast food trucks for KFC and Pizza Hut. No outside food and drinks allowed, and the things sold there were freaking expensive. Coke and 100+ all the canned drinks were rm8 each and bottled water was rm5 each, I'm sure they earned a fortune feeding us thirsty party people.

Mechanical Bull was also available there, rm15 for 2 tries. A fun touch to the event other than the usual carnival game stalls. This mechanical bull is tiny compared to the ones we always see in movies and there was something solid for the participants to hold onto I'm sure its not as easy as people expect it to be.

The main stage, where we spent most of our two evenings. :)

Slingshot was available too and it charged rm50 per ride. Didn't try even though dying to lol.

Love this series of shots I took for them. :)

Then the partying began. :D We danced from 7-8pm+ till 12am on the first night.

Some foreign singer named Krista K (no idea who is that but very pretty) performed for us, singing covers of a few mainstreamed songs.

And when Pitbull came out, everyone went crazy. :D 

He was the highlight of the first night and his performance was out of this world! I was already tired before that, and almost started to fuss about wanting to go home lol but when he came on, all fatigue miraculously disappeared lol. He performed almost all of his popular songs and everyone sang along. His Latin dancers dressed in 3 different skin tight costumes throughout the night and they were awesome too!

Pictures taken during the second day. :) Look at the sky in the background lol. It was dark grey and it looked as if a storm is coming! However when the rain came around 8pm+ it was lighter than expected. Still, the rain came right because it wasn't too heavy to stop the party and it subsided with sufficient time for us to dry up before the event ending.

Highlight of the second night was Taboo from the Black Eye Peas. Didn't think he was that good a DJ but I did love his full red costume. We got to see Miss Nina but I just looked at her dancers most of the time (lol hi Adam Tan you're so hottttttttttt). And Tenashar was spinning that evening but I didn't get to listen to her play and that's really sad. :C

We Love Asia was really fun! Thank you Tim for driving us to and from there for the whole of two days, we wouldn't have attended this without you! :) I'm glad we didn't go to World Stage, even though at first I really wanted to, because I heard people getting sunburned from all the queuing. And I'm glad we got to see Pitbull at such a cheap rate along with so many foreign DJs worth it! Definitely (maybe) a next year. :D

With all the love,
