53rd Merdeka Day – The Historical Event Started


53rd Merdeka Day – A History Is Created

A history will be created this morning in Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. This is because for the first time, this year 53rd National Day Parade (Perarakan Hari Merdeka) will be held in this indoor stadium. This was due to it fall on the same day with fasting month.

I slept around 3.00AM today, woke up at 6:00AM to get myself ready so that I can be part of the history. I have decided to be there to witness it. After breakfast at Restoran Nasi Kandar Deen, Taman Melawati I drove to Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil through MRR 2.  As today is public holiday, most people still sleeping when I hit the road. I loved the traffic condition this morning. Smooth all the way. No traffic jam, no bumper to bumper que.  Wink This road used to be heavy traffic jam most the time. I reached there at 7:30AM.

After 43 years of living in Malaysia, this is the first time (at the age of 44+) I attended a National Day Celebration. I attended this event as it have created a history. I also want to create a history for myself. If I did not attend it this year, when will be this moment happening again? [National Day + Fasting Month (Ramadhan)] How many more years before it happen again? Will I still be around that moment?

As I walked to the stadium, I noticed that this car was partly decorated with Jalur Gemilang (The name of Malaysia Flag) Nothing special, as you might have seen it in town or else where. What special and have attracted me is….. it is the only car in the whole open car park with such decoration. That all Smile

World’s Largest Pewter Tankard

Filed under: Malaysia,Pavilion,Pewter,Royal Selangor — Tags: , , , — Stephen @ 2:00 pm

While having dinner at a Mamak restaurant over here in Taman Melawati on 31st July, 2009 I have spotted this article at the Starmetro Newspaper, I have decided to snap it down.

Measuring 1.987m, and weighing 1,557kg, the tankard, certified as the world’s largest by the Guinness World Records.

Today is Sunday, I am in KL (Kuala Lumpur) and quite free. I have decided to go over Pavilion to take a look at this giant tankard. I parked my car at KLCC, (Petronas Twin Towers) around 1.30PM. I walked toward the KLCC (Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre) and there are many people heading toward the same direction as today is the last day of PC Fair 2009. As soon I reached KLCC, I did not follow the crowd to PC Fair but I crossed the road and headed to Wisma Cosway. I used the flyover bridge to Pavilion and have these pictures taken.

Tired walking from KLCC to Pavilion? Since the pewter tankard so big, no harm to ‘borrow’ it body to have a short nap. Right? Wink Waha Ha Ha! Well, infact this picture was taken by the security guard as I couldn’t find anyone to hold the camera for me. You can’t blame him as he never ask me to get ready and he just snapped like that.

Feeling fresh after the ‘short nap’? Here is another picture taken by him ‘just after wake up’ Ha! Ha! Anyway, I like to thank him for taken me these pictures or else you will not see me beside the world largest pewter tankard. Grin

After taken these pictures, I walked back to KLCC for the PC Fair 2009. Just wondering what special about this event this year. While at the bridge this words caught my attention. Feeling energitic and alive that moment, I said to myself, “Why not?” I gave it a shot.
