Where do you usually spend your weekend at? Well, I usually spend my weekend at work or datacentres. Life is like that. It is not easy to make ends meet. But there are times that I manage to get some time off for myself and my family, and so when that happens, I’ll go to happening places with my wife and son.

So last weekend, my other half told me that there’s this interesting going on in Matic Jalan Ampang. So I decided, why not. We could check it out. Apparently there’s this funfair for the whole family going on over there. 😀 We woke up early to check it out. The singing competition was already ongoing when we arrived.

And so is arm wrestling competition. Will you just look at the huge men competing with themselves!

Paintball competition for extreme sports lovers. Would love to try this but did not come fully prepared in proper sports attire, so I had to scratch that idea. 😀

This Matic Fest 2013 is family friendly, so of course there’s something for the little ones as well. 😀 The clown, entertaining the kids with his balloon sculptures and jokes.

There’s also colouring competition for both children and adults. 😀 This one is from the Batik Painting competition.

And of course, what’s a fun family fair without the food. There are loads of stalls selling all sorts of food from all over Malaysia at a very reasonable price.
