"Painball" or "Paintball"?

We spent 2 nights at Swiss Garden Damai Laut recently. My son was so excited when he heard that paintball is available in that resort. He played it once in KL and loves that game very much.

Initially I was not keen to play because none of us brought our long sleeve shirts and long pants. Furthermore, I was scared of being hit by the ball (I could imagine the pain). However, I later gained enough courage to have a game with my hubby and 2 elder kids.

Do not underestimate the power of this tiny ball.

Loading the gun. Each of us paid RM65 for 100 bullets.

Team 1: Mom & Dad
Team 2" Son & Daughter

Started off with target shooting

The battle field ... Kids vs Parents!!!

Parents fighting a losing battle...my hubby was "mercilessly" shot by our son in a few places.
We called it "The Son's Revenge"

I was quite painful when the ball hit me. My delicate skin bruised for a few days.

I must admit it was fun and exciting. However, on the following day, my hubby and I refused to play with our son again (it is expensive and why pay to get hit??). So we let him join 3 boys that he just met for the game.

Putting down the signature...playing at your own risk.

That 3 brothers were all first timers. My son shared some techniques with them.
Hmm...is it possible to be 1 against 3?

Initially my son was confident to play against all the 3 of them.

It is not easy to be a lone ranger no matter how good you are.


That 3 boys learned fast. The next round, my son requested one of them to join his team.

Besides having good fun & making new friends, the boys had learned the importance of teamwork.

Wonderful family time though a bit of pain. It goes with the saying, no pain no gain. With a bit of pain, you gain to have quality family time spent together!

Hi Yuin Ting, wow! Very interesting! I have heard of it but never tried it even though I love guns and target shooting.
Anyway, I prefer real guns....love the sounds they make.
Love the great pics, well taken, and so nice see green and coconut trees. Here all white with snow and ice. Still another 2 months before we get to see green grass.

Wow, you got shot, huh? Yes, I can imagine the sting when that ball hits.
You have fun and keep well.
Lee.

Hi Joyful.Mum, we did have a great time! You're right, no pain, no gain. Even the wallet is painful, ha ha...

Hi Uncle Lee, my son enjoys shooting and he keeps pestering us to let him learn target shooting. Even so, I think paintball is very fun too, especially for boys. In KL there are bigger paintball parks with different fields, some even offer real jungle scenario for those who want to experience battle in the wood. I could imagine the thrill of hiding behind trees and bushes while trying to eliminate opponents. Lots of running, sliding and crouching...my son enjoyed it to the fullest.

这粒小球太危险了,可要小心别打到眼睛。

夫人,那粒小球的確有點危險,所以一定要戴著头盔。最好也身穿長袖衣褲。
