When I first received the invitation to attend Malaysia’s first Glamping Night 2014 by Kirin Ichiban, I was like what in the world is Glamping? I looked up the meaning of Glamping and felt embarassed for being ignorant the first time #supershy

“Glamping is a hybrid of the conventional camping experience with a Japanese twist”.

Thanks to Kirin Ichiban, I learned the true meaning of Glamping and I get to experience it myself. It was one-of-a-kind experience that combined the best of camping with glam and Japan. From the beginning till the end, everything was Japanese-inspired.

We were to bring our very own origami tent which was included in the invitation card to entitle for an entry to Kirin Ichiban Glamping Night and also in exchange for a card to collect 4 stickers to entitle for the lucky draw. The prize was a trip to Japan! #determinedtowin 01 Kirin Ichiban Glamping Night 2014

The first sticker was collected at the entrance. We were each given a lantern to decorate which were later used to decorate the ambiance.

Tents were spread across the White Box, where Glampers had to experience all Japanese-themed activities to complete their ‘checklist’. Activities included Kendama (traditional Japanese game), arts and crafts, which included DIY silkscreen art and a DIY box seat, and delectable Japanese bento boxes. What an experience!

Glampers required to do some Kendema tricks to entitle a sticker. It was tough at first, but later it got pretty addictive. I learned a few tricks and almost got brainwashed to be a Kendema player. LOL

At this station, we get to ink our very own Kirin Ichiban bag. It was fun and hilarious at the same time. Watch the video below.
