When Won Bin was at the South Korea launch of the Nintendo Wii (pronounced ‘we’) in April this year, he looked like he was having fun, so much so that I wanted a go at the Wii too.
Back then, I also wrote about missing a Wii party my friend organised. In the entry, I said that if another Wii party came about, I would jump at the opportunity.
Lo and behold, K-popped!‘s friend Darke decided to hold a Wii Fit Party on Saturday. Whoo hoo – play time!
Orchid and I arrived at Darke’s house all set to try out the Wii. For starters, Darke decided to give us something “easy” (yeah, right), which turned out to be long distance running! Geez, were we duped or what? :-P.
So there we were – Orchid and I – running in place, the Wii Remote in hand, panting like dogs and our friends cheering us on. The supposedly leisurely jog turned into a race and my Mii (your personal avatar for the game) stumbled and fell a couple of times – ouch!
After outrunning Orchid, I tried Rhythm Boxing and went up against a punching bag. There I was doing the jab, right cross and left hook with Orchid instructing me to “Put your shoulder into it!”
Uh-huh, the advice kind of worked because I destroyed the Punching Bag – one of its “arms” broke into two and fell off – and the Punching Bag was smokin’. Heee-yah, take that!
while I released some pent-up anger in Rhythm Boxing (below)
Meanwhile, Orchid who finally recovered from eating my dust in the long distance race (tee hee hee) decided to play some football/soccer. She had to head footballs into the goal.
After all that prancing about, the gang adjourned for a calorie-rich lunch before continuing with another session of calorie-incinerating Wii games :-P.
Have you tried the Nintendo Wii? I personally got a good exercise, especially with Rhythm Boxing as my muscles were sore the next day :-).
Darke, when’s the next Wii Fit party? Hee hee….
