    49th Merdeka
    eve celebrations...

    Is and I decided to take a drive around town... to check out the happenings.. the streets were crowded... cars..bikes.. you name it... and all those bloody mat rempits... stupid A-class morons... who think they're kings of the roads with their fucked up small bikes... but everyone expects mat rempits to hang out on days like there... it was after 11pm and the streets were jammed.. not a usual sight in Ipoh... trust me..!

    after circling around... and finally finding a parking bay bout 1km away from the Ipoh Padang (Ipoh Field)... the venue for the state level merdeka countdown celebrations.... couple hundred meters away we heard the National anthem being played... like wtf right? looked at the time it was a minute away from midnight... i didnt even notice time had gone by so fast... we tried to run but decided against... so much traffic... so we actually missed the countdown and the raising of the flag...

    Pyro show video...

    but we managed to catch the awesome fireworks display... and the stage performances... there was a huge crowd of people gathered on the field... Nana (from Akademi Fantasia 1 / ERA FM dj)... she has a loud kinda annoying voice... and K.T Pillay (popular face / voice at local functions) were the MC's for the night...
    Performances for the night were Fauziah Latiff... Sasi The Don... Izlin (malay dangdut kinda) and 4 old school rock jiwang guys...

    Sasi The Don brought the house down... seriously..! it was very surprising and hillarious seeing the crowd comprising 99% Malays getting jiggy to Sasi the Don..... there was kinda like a mosh pit going on... even during his Tamil songs...
    Crowd went crazy during Izlin's set as well.... and very woodstock like during the rock jiwang set...



    Fooling around with Linda...

    Went round the city after that... looking for racers.... everyone was... but at every place known for racing there were coppers on standby... so we headed back to Is's place... talked bout VW's... layan some music... talked cock... ended up heading home 4 in the morning....
