Was assigned a very heavy responsibility last Friday - to be the chaperone for the lantern team at the grand opening of the 2011 MSSM annual sports events. On that faithful day, the Perak Stadium overflowed with students and athletes, all waiting for the arrival of the ministers, delegates and VIPs. As conclusion, the whole gala was a money-wasting, time-wasting and manpower-wasting event! Biasalah... kwan si ka ho (Hokkien slang...)
The Perak Stadium
Perak team and its 'seladang' mascots
Hornbill, the Sarawak mascot
Eagle, the Kedah mascot
Unknown giant bird, the Sabah mascot
The liveliest mascot of the night
Wondering why it was moving so fast...
Making a 'bull'rush to hug the bull???
(Ever seen a bird hugging a bull before?)
Lighting the torch
Brightly lit 1Malaysia lanterns surrounding the Ipoh stadium
Here comes the firework display!
Wow! $$$ burning...
More $$$$$ gone...
My condolences to the tax-payers' hard-earned money...
