Malaysian paintball notches another win this time around, with Laloque winning the 2008 Nescafe Kickstart reality show and the prize money of RM150,000!. From running a small PB clinic to organise PB tournament, he manage to convinced the judges & his voters why his dream should be the ultimate of all dreams!
I'm a casual follower of the show, but here's what the other four finalist dreams are - RAZAISYAM who wants to be a movie producer/director, MAHIRAH wants to open her own swimming academy and SHIRLEY wants to open a cake and tart shop. Congratz to them also for getting this far in the competition.
So, last Sunday 20th, the paintball gang grouped together at the Malaysian Paintball Academy (MAPAAC) and we all watch the show as the results about to be announce. Teams who came for practice had to stop and join in the Laloque fever! hehehe..
In the studio, Laloque's close friends & supporters gave him the morale support he needed during the announcement. The tense situation doesn't help us to calm the nerves here.

The waiting and suspense is killing us!
Then, the announcement of the winner...
"Haa.. korang tengok tuh, sorak sakan tak control hensem! Sempat ehem-ehem lak sorang lagi tu.."
And then, couple of hours later, Laloque dropped my MAPAAC and we had a celebration going on for him. MUD bath!!!
"Gelak la korang, dier nih ader duit nak beli EVO 8 dah woi! hahaha"
Then some photoshoot with the winner.
Congratz Laloque, you deserved it. You made MAPAAC and the paintball community very happy!
