Happy Merdeka Day!

Had dinner with Euro in Desa Sri Hartamas. After walking around for awhile we decided to head back towards Petaling Jaya. Bitten by the patriotic bug suddenly, we thought of joining in the countdown of our National Day around Ikano Centre area. We knew it would be jam packed heading towards there but Euro said that we could probably catch the fireworks from Kota Damansara.

I thought, "Great idea!", however, so did hundreds of other drivers! Ha ha ha....Well, after getting stuck in a slow moving jam, we finally ended up in Palm Springs@Damansara. We ordered some drinks, then the fireworks started and I managed to get some shots of it. It came up behind the condos opposite Nasi Kayu Spring where we were seated. It felt good...I felt good watching the sky light up for about 10 minutes or so. Happy 49th Malaysia! Merdeka! We've come a long way and there is still a long way more.....

P.S. Oh! Happy Birthday to Lyn and Christine T. too!

Happy Merdeka! The whole area was full of fireworks - even at 9pm when we drove past Palm Springs, they had a mini fireworks display. Very good pixs and I love how the last one flickers between the two fireworks. Viva for fireworks mode on cameras!
