Meeting Up and Staying with Chelsea FC Players at One World Hotel: Football Fever in MALAYSIA
This week PlacesAndFoods.com will be doing the Football Fever in Malaysia theme and starting from next week, we will be back to normal. We will be posting up our travel itinerary for Bali next week so please bear with us if you are not a football fan.
Yesterday I got a chance of lifetime to meet up with Chelsea FC players at One World Hotel. To make it sweeter, I was actually staying with the players at One World Hotel courtesy of Malaysia Airlines.
Since morning, Chelsea FC fans and supporters can be seen loitering at the lobby area. Some of them wanted the players’ signatures while some of them just wanted a glimpse of them.
As the “Meet the player session” was 4.30pm, by noon there were already a huge crowd starting to queue up. Since it was an exclusive event, passes were needed.
I got a bit of luck as I was the first few who went in. There I bumped to friends like Steph and Helen. The event room was security tight and there was a long queue and everyone got the chance to meet the players and let them to sign for only one item. I took my Chelsea jersey (which I bought earlier on) for them to sign.
It was really an up close and personal event. I managed to take picture with Chelsea FC stars like Fernando Torres, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole. The whole team was inclusive of first team coaches.

After the “Meet the players session”, I rushed to the Bukit Jalil Stadium to watch the players training session.

Then, I went back to the hotel and called it a day. It was really tiring day as I was running here and there. However, to meet and stay with Chelsea players were totally amazing experience. I enjoyed my lovely stay at One World Hotel.
