kuala lumpur, malaysia.



so we land back in malaysia (we were there for our monster layover a few days ago), except this time we actually get to leave the airport. we were immediately greeted by cameras who are filming a 'day in the life' 30 min special on switchfoot. should be interesting.

we leave the airport and go straight to a bunch of media and another press conference. it took a long, long time. after that we headed back to the hotel, cleaned up, then we went and ate at one of the most ridiculous restaurants i have ever experienced. it seriously felt like we were at disneyland, but it was real. we went down this jungle walkway staircase to this amazing hut by a pool and ate amazing food. needless to say, it was insane.

the next morning, jon, tim, chad, and i headed over to this amusement park called sunway lagoon which has one of the more legit wavepools in the world. it produces perfect 3 or 4 ft waves everytime. the guys were lovin it. especially because the park was closed down and they let us in early. after the wavepool we all went on this ride called g-force. basically they strap you into this ball and then shoot it up into space. it was pretty awesome. the funniest part was when the cameraman for the little tv special went on it and they screamed like girls. it was amazing. (i just watched it on dvd to confirm how funny it was. real funny.)

after that we went and did a little shopping in chinatown, and then it was time for the show. tonight was easily one of the best shows switchfoot has done in a long time. the crowd was seriously insaaane. so loud and so awesome.

this trip was amazing and thanks to everyone who was involved. see you back in the states!

    Christon says

    Yeah, totally awesome! Thanks so much for coming. Even before your Asia Tour, was telling a friend Switchfoot would be the only band I'd pay to see play, and you guys actually came! Gave me a chance to prove my words right, haha! Just a shoutout to the band, thanks so much for playing in Malaysia, you guys have got such a great talent. I hope you guys continue to do what you do (making music) and also continue to keep the reason why you do what you do. God bless guys. Have a good rest before your next US Tour.

    Yours,
    Christon (one of two guys wearing the switchfoot caps towards the front, at Tim's end, hehehe)

    I intended to thank Switchfoot for coming to Msia right after the concert, but my net wasn't working & when it was finally up, I was busy.

    But better late than never.

    Thank you guys so much for giving us such an awesome concert! I don't think any other band can beat the bar you guys set! :)

    My friends & I had a blast & can't wait for you guys to come back to KL!

    Oh & my friend Julian asks if you could bring Relient-K along the next time. =P

    For some [amateur] pics,
