Ticket to Ride?

The weekend was a bliss, I managed to spend time with Chuen on both Saturday and Sunday as well as attend a church friend's wedding. The ceremony was great, the decorations were superb and I have to say that the photographer they hired was top notch. You can check out their website over here or click on the image below. The pictures taken during the wedding really enhances the true emotional side of a person. Each picture they took was unique and it just goes right to your heart. Truely an art to behold. If you are getting married soon, hire them, You will not regret it. After watching the photo presentation during the wedding dinner, I knew that they were really good.

The only drawback from the wedding wasn't during the ceremony but after it. There was a massive traffic jam in the heart of KL thanks to God-knows-who who decided to close one of the roads to PJ at the Pahang Roundabout.

Sunday was rather fun as well as I managed to learn how to play the Best Board game of 2004, 'Ticket to Ride' at Toys in Motion in 1 Utama. In case you want to find out where Toys in Motion is, its located in the new wing on the very top floor right outside Parkson. At the top floor there are two entrances to Parkson, one next to MPH and the other on the other side of the building. It is very easy to locate, just walk and you will come across it. Its a big orange shop.

October 2, 1900 -- it's 28 years to the day that noted London eccentric, Phileas Fogg accepted and then won a 20,000 pound bet that he could travel Around the World in 80 Days. Now at the dawn of the century some old friends have gathered to celebrate Fogg's impetuous and lucrative gamble -- and to propose a new wager of their own. The stakes: $1 million in a winner-takes-all competition. The objective: to see the most cities in North America -- in just 7 days.

Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure game. Players collect train cards that enable them to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn. Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination Tickets by connecting two distant cities, and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway. So climb aboard for some railroading fun and adventure. You've got a Ticket to Ride!
