What did you say about my mother’s pillow?!?


Okay, I’ve seen a lot of wacky celebration days but this just takes the cake. Did you know that there’s an International Pillow Fight Day? I kid you not, Google it, and ye shall find the answer (complete with photos of hundreds of people bashing each other up with soft, fluffy pillows).

Well, such interesting events are not limited to the States anymore. Does everyone remember the KL Freeze in Unison flash mob? It was awesome – I didn’t get to participate in it (coz I wasn’t in KL at that time) but it was featured on Astro. Mainstream television!

Anyway, the great mind(s) behind the first flash mob in KL is organizing another event – just as zany, and twice as fun. Pillow fight, anyone?


Lucky for us, Corntoz is sponsoring the Corntoz Pillow Fight. It is happening on our very shores on the 4th of April 2009 at 4 pm.

Now, a lot of us have been deprived of the simple joys of slapping each other silly with a feather stuffed piece of fabric since sleepovers are not exactly common over here. It’s great fun, especially if the pillows are made with real feathers and it all comes out. Just like in the movies. πŸ˜‰

Now, since I don’t have a bedroom sparring partner (okay, that didn’t sound right coming out) I have re-enacted a pillow fight…with miscellaneous action figures and fluffy toys.


Poor Panda: Ouch! You did not just do that. I’m going to get my team to give you a proper pillow smack down.


Belligerent Bear: O rly? You and what army? Those miniature Gundam figurines?


Poor Panda: Nope, this huge Spiderman.
Belligerent Bear: *gulps*

Anyway, if you’re interested in the Corntoz Pillow Fight, you’ll have to jump through some hoops to get at the details. The location of the Gathering Point will be revealed at the Corntoz Pillow Fight website on the 2nd of April (tomorrow) at 2 am.

It’s all very hush-hush. The Gathering Point is not the venue of the pillow fight, but rather a rendezvous point. The actual venue will only be revealed on the day itself so be there at 4 pm on the 4th of April 2009. You’ll be split into two groups and battle it out. There are 60 cities around the world participating! Don’t forget to bring your own pillow.


You know the best thing about Corntoz Pillow Fight? It’s organized by the same people as KL Freeze in Unison so who knows which media station is going to show up? Fancy your ugly mug on the TV?

I do. I’m going!

(and I’m sure going to stick to the cameraman like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth)

  1. Nice pillow case! Pillows fights got my sister Amy in big trouble for she toss a pillow at me and of all thing broke my mom mirror. Got punish for that. Never again.
    It hit the mirror and it really crack it.

  2. Not yet, but it’s going to be next week. This is just the first pass bleach. I’m going to bleach it again on Friday to achieve the shade of dirty blond I want. πŸ™‚

  3. hmm i will surely go there if i am in kl! i used to have pillow fights with my brothers when we were younger :)we put the pillow inside the shirt and bumped into each other~ heh~miss those good old days when i read ur post πŸ™‚

  4. shadowking: I borrowed it from my coworker. πŸ™‚
    It’s quite well articulated and stands tall above the rest so I thought it’ll make a nice picture.
    Chriso: Haha! Great, my friend. What kind of pillow would you be bringing?
    Anthea: That sounds like fun! I never really bonded with my sister (my only sibling) coz she’s two years older and we’re polar opposites when it comes to personality. She’s quite uptight.
    I love doing that too, the pillow inside the shirt thing. There are also sumo suits nowadays, basically the same party/event gimmick, done in a ring. πŸ™‚

  5. I am sorry HB, but I had to laugh. I think that is the first “angry” pic i have ever seen of you. No disrepect to you or the Roman Catholic Church, but you look like a guy who has just removed his collar and is saying ” hey I just did two funerals, a marriage, and and a babtism today: I need a little down time, ok? All you lack is holding the collar in your hand! God Bless. Tom

  6. Sorry HB, You did not look like a priest, but rather a bishop, or monsiginor, in that long buttoned black shirt. Hope you are well, and have put your ring in a safe place. Pillow fights I remember from my distant past. Not my own fights, but thinking of the girls, next door. that story would have to go under xx chromesone. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Watch out for the duck feathers. ( quills). I sleep on a green sheet, with orange pillow case. I was asked, does that not bother you- no,better than under a bridge with no cover at all- once your eyes are closed you don’t need matched sheet sets. Thanks for the laugh and memory. God Bless

  7. Dude, too fluffy ? I dunno… I never slept with her πŸ™‚ No pun intended, just couldn’t let this one goes to waste….my apologies.

  8. Today in San Francisco is April Fool Day. Heard from a friend of mine that another friend had it with being regular guy decided to be gay! I was shock for it was childhood friend.
    Got punk badly heard more to come. Beware of April Fool joke.

  9. Tian Chad @ 永遇乐: Hey, you’re not the first person who told me that. πŸ™‚
    I was told I look like an anime character gone wrong earlier. Heh!
    ShaolinTiger: Ya, going for the bleached blond look. Have been looking at so many photos of Eminem I’m starting to like him…that way. πŸ˜‰
    erin: It’s called lala over there. πŸ™‚
    foodcrazee: I don’t think they’ll take it very well if people start getting knocked out by hard pillows. The pillow fight police will probably arrest you or something. πŸ˜‰
    tom: Heh! None, taken buddy. πŸ™‚
    That is actually my office attire, I just got home and took off my belt.
    hitomi: No, my evil twin will go. :p
    cynthia: Nope, I need to do a second bleach process on Friday after work. Haircut on Saturday. πŸ™‚
    tom: Very wise words of wisdom, my friend.
    I agree, having a bed to sleep on beats sleeping on the streets any day. πŸ™‚
    Thanks! Glad you enjoyed reading it.
    calvin: I’m not sure if there will be a camera crew but the KL Freeze in Unison was broadcast on Astro. πŸ™‚
    tom: That’s a compliment mate. Cheers for that! πŸ™‚
    pm: I believe if you want to kill yourself, there are better ways to go than rope or broken glass. I’ve tried using the latter myself. My advice is still the same. The Love Guru had a book: You’re hurting yourself. Stop hurting yourself. Why are you still hurting yourself? πŸ˜‰
    YingYang: It’ll be back to black next Monday. πŸ™‚
    e: Haha! Nice one. I like soft pillows, it makes sleep come easier. πŸ™‚
    Michael (Mike): Yup, it’s April Fools day all around the world. πŸ™‚
    Didn’t get punked coz I was at work the entire day.
    chefmel: Got oomph eh? πŸ˜‰

  10. One morning, I saw Mel talking to a blonde guy on the bench outside the snooker center. I thought he was one of those guys who works at the snooker center, so I ignored both and walked away. 5 minutes later, I saw the same guy walking into the office.
    I went, “O_O”

  11. so i might have cancer should i post that im my facebook or not? is cancer icky? will girls be turned on or off from that?

    Chriso: Eh no, Eminem k? πŸ™‚
    Jan: Why? I think a lot of poeple would go alone.

    Alive and well. Thanks for the concern Choonie. Erm…the SOP now is 7 days. πŸ™‚

    YilingL: Yiling! You’re back! πŸ™‚

  14. i went to the pillow fight yesterday too. Hm..i dun recall i see any guy with blonde hair. or maybe your hair not blonde enough to stand out from the rest of the crowd? =p

  15. erin: Yeah, that’s what I’m used to hearing too. Lala is like a KL term. πŸ™‚
    Emeryn: I couldn’t make it – it was too rushed. I was late for the music bash too due to a taxi that doesn’t know his way and took for for a tour around KL. :S
    Hope you had fun! πŸ™‚

  16. hitomi: My evil twin brother? How do you know him? He hasn’t been around for a long time, not since the castitas.com days anyway. :p
