So...What is paintball?

Whoa...before I continue with my story, many would ask, what the heck is that?
Well, make things simple, basically it is a form of extreme sport that involves 2 more players, each equipped with a marker ( its the gun, but we don't call it that... ), a facemask, some pellets ( paint filled 'bullets' ) annndddd...that's it! ( oh...a vest if u need one...we machos never use them! Ouch! )

Currently in Malaysia, there are two types of paintball game that are popular:
1. Speedball

Normally played on a field, indoor or outdoor, with bunkers and two teams playing against each other. Could be capture the flag, Elimination, depending on the organiser. Below is the pic for the gears commonly used.

a. The facemasks

b. The markers set

c. The suit

d. The gloves

e. The boots

Well, nuff said.
Later, I will show u my current fav...Woodsball!!!


I was thinking, what could I do to spice up my life a little bit?.....Hmmm, frequent night spots? Do drugs? Illegal racing? Subscribe to 'Lorong Haji Taib'?......Nah....

It was then, as fate wants it, I met my old friend, Roslim (See pic).

He is a pioneer in Malaysian paintball, but previously I was let down by my frens abysmal response and also lack of funds. Coz that time, speedball is THE GAME, and the cost is quite astronomical for those
But this year, he let me and my Kg Pisang frens ( a local collectors forum ) a tryout at his establishment in Tmn Pertanian Shah Alam. ( see )
to be continued.....


Yet another entry from me. Time to get my life organised ( its been a total mess up to now ). Many things have passed by, some good, some bad.....I just stumble on, plowing this thing called 'LIFE'.......

Well, enough drama, got to focus elsewhere. Time for some diversion in my life! Time to make do with what I have! Strive on!
