Sorry but no picture today coz I was afraid to bring my camera in due to the most menyusahkan security check. Yesterday my food got thrown away so...anyway, here's what happened today :
1) went out to several locations to do links for squash, swimming, hockey,weigh-lifting and off course we had to go through securities. Today I decided to bring minimal things out of the car. Guess what happened??!! THEY TOOK MY LIPGLOSS! I wasn't allowed to bring it into the swimming stadium! They were probably afraid I would paint the pool pink!
2) Then it was off to the Squash court. Here it was pretty straight forward. Because the entrance to the stadium was far, we had a shuttle bus to take us in. As we stepped in, our "Squash queen" Nicole David was painted on their wall! Awethome! The Siri Fort Stadium was quite nice because it was built around the old fort so it actually had some historical sites around it.
3) Then it was off to the Jewarhar Lal Nehru Stadium where the opening ceremony was held. We were there for the lawn bowl event. Dahla nak masuk macam taik, the volunteers don't even know their way around. So like yesterday, we were sent to walk all around the stadium. In the end we had to search for our own way. There's no signage that makes sense. One minute they say we can exit here but when we reach the security check, they say we cannot exit. KEPALA HOTAK! So back to where we started and met one of the volunteers and told him the problem. He apologized and my cameraman Pulen said "Dont say sorry, do something about it!'". Tu dah lepas geram sikit.
4) Finally at the Hockey stadium which is around the same area - all we wanted was to take an establishing shot of the freaking building. We have a media pass/tag that allow us to go anywhere (apparently not!) but the police decided that we cannot take any shot of the building. Got one the people with the green t-shirt (who is above the volunteers) to help take us around. We told him (coz he understands English) that:- "you are making our life/work difficult. We are trying to promote your place to our country in Malaysia. its not our loss if we don't get this shot. Stop giving us problems and you better talk to your organizers to give briefing to all your freaking volunteers and police and securities so that everyone is on the same page." Itu dah panas habis dah. I told them off. Mana tak-nya after walking so far thanks to them, then they come and tell us another bullc**p! Siapa tak marah?!
There was also a point where we wanted to get out of the place and they didn't allow us to! Apa hal?!!
Haiyo, well that's a brief on what happened on the 2nd day of the CWG. Feel free to tell anyone about it :)
More to come!
