57 photos of my Merdeka on Malaysia's 57 Merdeka celebration....

57 photos of my Merdeka on Malaysia's 57 Merdeka celebration....

This year is the very first time I took the initiative to head to Dataran Merdeka to witness first hand the feel of Merdeka. It was an amazing experience but well, since I brought my little girl.. I did not get to enjoy it 100% because having a child around means you have to attend to their needs... And my little girl was bored... then she was hungry... and then she needed to go to the toilet and on that.... I had to surrender...


However, I got 57 pictures here to share my little piece of Merdeka....
Waiting for the LRT, we parked the car at the multi storey car park in Terminal Putra and took the LRT to Masjid Jamek

From Masjid Jamek, we walked towards the Dataran Merdeka . Along the way, there were plenty of the latest Proton Perdana parked by the side of the road, all government/ minister's vehicles...

We got there about 7.30am and there was already a huge.. and I mean HUGE crowd....

On the way to the Dataran - actually we did not quite reach the dataran as the crowd was too overwhelming- we got free flags and a bottle of mineral water each. Thanks, to whomever who organized that.. that was lovely!!!

See the crowd.....

My view of the dataran merdeka..... cannot go there... 




His Majesty DYMM Di Pertuan Agong, the King arrives....



Four helicopters carrying flags flying overhead....

An opportunity to take a photo with a royal palace ceremonial guard....

Little girl with one of the royal cars... me thinks this car is the queen's car...

The parade starts....Yaaaayyy































The sea of people.....there must be tens of thousands  of thousand people around here today......

Colourful balloons...

My little patriot....

Hmmm.. Miss Malaysia wannabe????
And that was more or less what I did this early Merdeka morning..... thank you .... Selamat Hari Merdeka !!! Spread the love....
