Hello my readers, How are you all doing? All good?
Well, today’s entry is a little more like a massive announcement that will get your hearts pumping – especially for sports lovers. Do we have a sports lover in this channel? Ain’t too late to grow the love, though. Kuala Lumpur 2017 (KL2017) is the brand name of the 29th Southeast Asian Games and the 9th ASEAN Para Games. This year, Malaysia will be the hosting nation for the 29th Southeast Asian Games, so athletes and people from all over the Southeast Asia region will be crowding the streets and stadiums to support the grand battle for the Gold medal. The Southeast Asian Games that took place last moth was such a huge success and i am so looking forward to the ASEAN Para Games on September 17th to 23rd, 2017.
Are you all getting excited? I sure am! Man, there are soooo many sports competing during the Southeast Asian Games. There’s the ever popular badminton, football, swimming and squash. Plus, this year’s highlight has to be the new winter sports; Ice Hockey and Figure Skating. Winter is totally coming to Malaysia. Pun totally intended!
For the 9th ASEAN Para Games, it is going to as exciting and awesome as well. About 3,000 athletes and officials from 11 nations in the South East Asia region will participate in this biennial games. There will be a total of 16 sports and more than 380 events contested!
Yeap, so that’s the announcement for today’s entry. Later!
HAH! Kidding! Happy August Fool Day – I’m calling dip on this first!
So, you probably notice that my title says “KL 2017”, right? I’m not celebrating different events here, people, KL 2017 or Kuala Lumpur 2017 is the official name they’re using for this year’s Southeast Asian Games and ASEAN Para Games. The man – Khairy Jamaluddin came up with the name – sounds grandiose, right? Since I’m writing about the Games, I did a little research here and there, one thing stands out is they got loads of cool sponsors from cool companies man, the one that really stands out is Traveloka. You guys ever heard of Traveloka? No? Well, we might as well do a Traveloka 101 session. We got the time.
Who is Traveloka?
Traveloka is one of the leading e-commerce travel agency site popping up like mushrooms nowadays. Did you guys remember the revamped Raya song on the TV or YouTube? Dude, that’s them! You can go on YouTube and watch it, it’s freakin’ hilarious. So, my travel radar went buzzing when I found out they are the Gold sponsor for this year’s KL 2017. They’re like the only online travel agency sponsoring for this sports event, I don’t know about you, but I think that’s dope. Of course, I didn’t stop there, knowing Traveloka, they like throwing deals like giving out candies to kids, and I was dead right! During the event, Traveloka will be conducting wicked contests and best deals for flights and hotels. They’re opening their own booth at the main venue, the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, so you guys can drop by and see what fun stuff they have there. Who knows? You might find cheap flight tickets and can book hotel online then and there.
I gotta say, these two months, Malaysia will be on a roll. Who are you going to watch this year? What’s your favourite sport and what team are you looking forward to the most? It’s time to exchange those travelling shoes with sports shoes because the stadium is waiting for us! Wait, maybe you can bring your travelling shoes along because if we’re going to the stadium, we gonna have to make a pit stop at the Traveloka and book me some tickets! Have a blast day, guys! Rising Together, we shall!
