I wanted to go so badly last year but due to transportation and also work, I couldn't make it. Although I had work today, I tried to get off early but in the end still ended up there late. Better late than never.

Arrived at Setia City Park using my Waze in less than 30 minutes from Kota Damansara. By the time I got a parking and got at the event itself, it was already 5.40pm. The first thing I did was to take pictures of whatever booths I was passing by. All the booths on the right were apparently apparels.

Just as I was about to walk on to take more photos of the booths, I saw a crowd surrounding the centre as I heard some kids singing. Turns out that there were some kids singing while playing on the Ukulele! Cute much!

Looked around and saw the alpha churpers, Reuben, Dennis, Dan Khoo and Shawn. Went over to say greetings before they proceeded to the "elevator".The elevator is a reverse bungee jump which seemed so interesting. Too bad I didn't get to try it because it was raining when I had the chance and I didn't want to get drenched in the rain...

Enough with the pictures of the elevator. I bet you would want to watch them scream instead right? Here's Reuben's daring act for keeping his phone in his hand, filming his experience with his hat on; Dan Khoo who failed at flipping in the air, not earning RM50 for every spin he does from Reuben and Dennis Yin, who is the most entertaining poser of all. Take a look and have a laugh!

Next up on the agenda was Capoeira. I never exactly watched one before so I stood with Jian, Chee Ching and their friend and watched on. It's quite a cool dance actually. The history behind it is that Brazillians used this dance to hide the fact that they were actually training to defend themselves. I hope I got the facts right. I was driving as Jian explained the details to me. Here are some videos.

Later, they invited the crowd to join in. They walked towards us and Jian ended up taking the offer. Little did we know how talented Jian was! He knows how to do the Capoeira! SERIOUSLY! And btw, he can sing too. He sang Thai songs while I drove him home today... Here's a video of him!!!

Next up was a dance performed by a K Pop group named Epsilon. They have some really cool funky colours...

And finally, as the event came to an end, the rain came to send us off. Look at the beautiful sunset as the event ended.

As the crowd died down, I finally got the chance to take a picture of the Churpout event backdrop, without having to fight for a minute to get a nice picture.

Here's what I went home with. I guess you can only notice the big box of doggy treats huh? It will be donated to Noah's Ark Welfare in Ipoh. I will be bringing it all the way back to Ipoh to donate it.

Thanks Churp Churp and the committees for holding such a fun day. Although I came late, I enjoyed it. Rain or Shine, it don't matter to us. YEAY!!! Poor Darren, he suffered from sunburn on his face. Don't worry Darren... you still look ok.
