After months of counting down to 2014 FIFA World Cup, the FIFA World Cup Brazil finally kicks off on 12 June 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. All football fans around the world have caught the ‘World Cup Fever’. I know some diehard footballs who booked tickets to Brazil to watch all the matches live from stadium. As for me, no budget for Brazil trip so I’ll just watch the Live matches on TV via Astro On-The-Go with my favorite snacks and beer 😀 I foresee many sleepless nights but what the heck, it’s World Cup season!
Recently, I was invited to attend the #StadiumAstro #OlaBola World Cup Party at Hongdae Moon, One City Mall.
Meet the official mascot for 2014 FIFA World Cup, a three-banded armadillo called “Fuleco”.
The bubbly Reuben Kang was the host for Stadium Astro #OlaBola Party with pretty Yong Wan Jun, the winner of Miss Malaysia Tourism 2012, both from Astro SuperSports.
Stadium Astro #OlaBola party’s theme was ‘Football National Jerseys’ thus all bloggers come dressed in their favorite football jerseys.
Both Isaac Tan and I teamed up with Reuben Kang for a World Cup Quiz. Most of the questions were about the World Cup’s history and we couldn’t answer most of it. Haha. My history sucks big time! Lex Lim (KampungBoyCityGal) and his team won the Quiz!
