fairground pt.5


Where in the world are you going to find Frodo painted on the back of a roller-coaster wagon? Here in KL, of course (this one's for you LeoSista!)

This was the first ride Candice and me went on and this snowballed into two other gut-wrenching, near-vomit inducing, adrenaline pumping thrilling rides of fun. The roller-coaster looked harmless. The track wasn't particularly long. So we went on it thinking it was child's play. Oh boy, were we wrong! Each wagon seats 4 passengers. Like all rollers, it travels upwards. But the moment the dips begin, the wagon twists and turns as it rides the track. There were moments I felt like I was about to be thrown out of it. Only when I got over the initial shock and dismounted the wagon did I notice Frodo (and Batman, Miss Jolie, Jessica Alba too!)

To the 5 of you who commented on yesterday's shot before I posted Frodo all get a KL postcard. Just send me your addresses on our DP email. Yay! Can't wait to lick the stamps!

Nice shot! Was the train moving? If yes, then you must be an excellent photographer! :-)

Hey Edwin, I love your post about the banana variation of Roti Canai. Would you have one or two fave places to eat in KL, in case I can come over during one of the next holidays? Thanks!

I really enjoy that movie. Good story, great effects, and good end, but I always thought that Frodo was stupid and coward.

Well, your Edship, that was seriously a white-knuckle read! Tame Frodo alongside it. Loved it. And Frodo is getting around too...no, I don't mean just in the fairground - nabeel posted a Frodo story on his blog last week.

Good capture but yesterdays was even better. I have tried a few amusement ride photo but not with much luck. After your description I am pleased that I photograph and skip the ride.
