When the first culture shock wasn't enough...

 
 Transformation from a nerdy boy to a konon-kaw-hengat-kaw-hawtness boy

What's up with this transformation thingy? Oh well, let me tell you guys a bit of here and there about my activities in Cologne for the past few days...As I have mentioned in my previous post, the celebration event will start from Thursday with Weiberfastnacht (Women’s Carnival Day) followed by Rosenmontag (Rose Monday) and ends on Aschermittwoch (Ash Wednesday). 

So my friends and I took the opportunity to join the crowd during the "crazy days" event and we took part on three consecutive days after the Karneval celebration started. The first one is what I had posted earlier on my blog..the karneval celebration...

Here comes the second and the third day( Rosenmontag) where the celebrations get hotter and more happening.The differences between this event and Weiberfastnacht are the present of colourful and exciting parades, Kamelle (sweets,candies, chocolates and etc.), and Struessjer ( Flowers). These are the main attractions for the Rosenmontag event where Kamelle and Struessjer are given out for free by the act of throwing them to the crowd...How cool is that? The most important thing to bare in mind when we're going to celebrate this event is to bring along a huge bag so that we can collect all the goodies we're getting...Yeah!!! 

The typical greeting during the festival is "Kölle Alaaf!"...There's a popular song with this greeting which I think I could go on humming it forever....Haha

Since most of the people dressed up for the Karneval, I thought why not, I could also give it a try.So I went there dressing up as a nerd on Sunday..and as a wannabe-hawt-guy on Monday..Owh boy how fun that was!!!
Collecting Kamelle was the best part I think..not forgetting the amount of roses we managed to collect on both days....best2...

I think it's better to explain the events through pictures...so yeah..Enjoy...

My favourite pic on Sonntag ( Sunday).Nampak meriah sangat!!!

 Nerd kena la add nerdy kan...

Frau Minrad gave us some of her Karneval decorations... 

On Sunday, we could see the parades organised by schools in Cologne and other places in NRW. Participants are mostly primary and secondary school students

 Macam2 ada....
 There are also groups of people coming from various companies in Cologne

 Teruja gambar best...

 These are some of the stuffs we managed to collect...kenyang makan benda2 ni jerla..

 Woh2...terpikir nak bukak business jual balik...

 Mat Bunga la plak kan...

 Group photos...ketika melahap makan kamelle


Nerdy Nabil says Buhbye to Sunday's Karneval

Hello Rosenmontag!!!!

Ciko terover la plak kan...

Lihatlah manusia2 dari serata dunia kat Cologne..1.3 Million kot..

Dorunk dua orang ni mmg pak lawak ke haper entah....

Gaya Baling Bebas

Some of the messages being conveyed

Cantik kan the parade....Kereta berhias best kot...

Not forgetting the happening bands that played exciting Karneval songs...

Kuda pown ada...serious kuda kat sini sangat besar dan bulu sangat tebal...takot woh..

Sebab ramai sangat...view pown xlah secantik yang diharapkan..

We managed to squeeze our way to the front..hasilnya gambar lebey memuaskan dan Kamelle yang mampu dikutip dengan lebey gigih...

Imagine how many tonnes of Kamelle were given out on that day...
13 tonnes if im not mistaken..omg..that's a lot..

Tschuess from Nabeyl !!!

Till next time...
