Standup Comedian Show by Harith Iskander @ Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil

Managed to get through on the first day to tell a joke to LITEFM DJ one monday morning which is also our 5th anniversary date and hubby birthday on 20 Oct 2014. I recall my colleague told me this funny joke " There is 10 fish in an aquarium with 80% water level. Suddenly, one fish die and the water level become full. Do you know why? Because the other 9 fishes they cry. Second day, all the 9 fishes went missing. Where they go? They went to send their member "Naik Bukit" ( In chinese they going for memorial the died fish).  I try my luck call in and I won 6 tickets to see Harith Iskander show at Bukit Jalil on 29 Oct 2014 at 8.30pm. The DJ laugh at my joke and funny enough he cannot guess what happen to the fish.

The ticket is post to my home address and reached on Monday. Very disappointing when I look at it. I have 5 seats from B1-B5 and another ticket  with C16. Different row and they put in the sellotape to make it together. So which means the 6th person need to sit separately which is very ridiculous. Can't they give us the ticket in one row??

So on 29 Oct 2014, we went out early to take the Star LRT to Bukit Jalil station from Sentul Timur. Took us almost 35 minutes ride and luckily it was not raining. We walk about 8 minutes to the Stadium Putra (our first visit here) and the whole are is crowded with stalls selling food and drinks ( overpriced), peoples are queuing up for the food. There is food truck, one side selling Burger , Espressolab and mineral water Evian selling at RM 5 for a very small bottle. There are Property booth from IJM Land, and Genting Rewards. We take our time walking around and they offer us a lucky draw when we register for Genting rewards card member. All the lucky balls are the same. Soft toys or room stay at First world genting. We both get a room stay on Saturday. That's good. 

We waited until 8.30pm. Traffic is bad outside and my Sister is still struggling to find a parking. Bigger crowds coming in and there are still people buying food at 8.30pm. I think this show is going to delay because of Malaysia style of always being late to any occasion. No choice but to wait for the show to start. This is managed by local people that's why. To compare the Disney show i went recently at KL Convention Centre who was handle by the Mat Salleh..They always ONTIME!!Sharp!. 8.30pm means exactly 8.30PM SHOW time

Upset and frustrating when the security guard checking our bag and does not allow drinking bottle. That is fine. I hope to buy the water inside. But they told me.those are not for sale and we are not allowed to purchase anything!! What?? Then why the people there are setting up stall and selling mineral water at RM 2?? Bad management and organizer. No cameras? YEAH people can just take their phone and take photos and videos.. so whats the point?

I found my seats and the plastic chairs is really sickening. We sat there for so long to wait for the show to start and with given ticket price at RM 128, we have to sit at the lousy plastic chairs!.All the people just started to come in at 8.45 pm. And they are finding their seats and the whole stadium is almost full with 8000 people.

So the show starts at 9.15pm. The reason is because traffic is bad ( not raining at all), the godfather is not here yet..showing us some pre recorded video to entertain the crowd. The shows are late and at 9.20pm they advertise this standup comedian show is sponsored by those companies..then come Adibah Noor on the stage who is also the MC for tonight. Then she sing a song and talking for so long..only the show start to begin with comedian Dr. Jason Leong for 20 minutes and continue by Papa CJ, India's most influential comic (Honestly, I not really understand his language and he was walking here and there..hard to concentrate on his jokes).Entertain by them for like 40 minutes. At 10.05 pm, Harith Iskander is finally here and everyone is so excited!…

Laugh all night long with his simple and funny jokes. I love the Master Chef joke and our typical Malaysian cultural. That is To know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA!” He has been talking for almost 1 1/2 hour and still continues.. I was looking at my's already 11.00 pm and I quickly check the website through my smartphone..Oppss.. the Star LRT station is going to close at 11.25pm. We better catch the last train or else we need to take other public transport. 

Very upset as we could not stay longer to wait for the show to finish and make our move for 8 minutes walking back to the station. Tiring, disappointed with this round of organizer which causes the delay. Have they think about us that we are taking public transport??

No wonder the show was late and everyone seems to be relaxing outside taking their own sweet time to go inside the stadium. They have already known and expected there are few local so called famous singers and celebrities who will be coming in late . When we are out from the stadium, I saw many nice cars parked outside with lots of bodyguards that are waiting there..

Anyway, we enjoy the show and surprisingly, there are maybe less than 10 people taking photos or videos which I can observe from my seats.
