KK Twestival 2011

This is a super belated post simply because I had only gotten around to transfer the small amount of photos (coming up below) from the event.  Oopsie!  The KK Twestival 2011 was held on March 24th, 2011 at Origin Cafe & Green Olives Restaurant at Karamunsing Capital, Kota Kinabalu in support of the Sabah Society for the Blind (as voted for prior to the event).

The first Twestival Local first came to KK shores last year but I wasn't able to be a part of it then.  This year, since I had time I dragged my brother to accompany me to the event.  To be honest, I wasn't exactly sure what the whole gig was about and I suppose now that I've seen it up close, I have somewhat of an understanding of the whole Twestival concept.

Food and drinks coupon

Each ticket comes with food and drink but unfortunately by the time we arrived they were all out.  Didn't even get to find out what was served either.  Haha.  So we bought some extra coupons (in the name of charity) to buy food and drinks.  The nom nom-ing choices were rather limited but then again, I don't suppose people came for the food now did they?

The general scene of the night

There was a pretty decent crowd that night and a host of fun and games.  The auctions got everyone a little excited though.  They were auctioning off specially hand made goods, Zumba classes, gym memberships, bachelors and bachelorettes among others.

Delicious but I'm loyal to Chocolate Vanilla. Haha.

Braille bookmark I got as a souvenir for my baby bro.
Slight typo but it's OK.
I met a few friends at the event and did some brief catching up.  All in all, it was an interesting experience and my bro and I simply chilled in the background soaking up the atmosphere.  I wanted to take more photos but the lighting was just too dim for my ole point and shoot to capture decent pics.  For a better feel of the whole event, check out the official KK Twestival page for HQ photos, and other info leading up to the event.

Oh hey, I won one of the lucky draw prizes too.  Haha.  A huge hamper and that was extremely unexpected since I barely win anything at lucky draws.  Something to share with the family at home.  The sound system could've been better that night though.  I could barely hear anything from where we were sitting (and we weren't that far).  Good fun though.  *smile*
