When darkness beginning to descend, every streets were slowly thronged with crowds ( holiday-makers, foreign visitors, local people....). Arghh.. I was suffocated and kept sweating. It was believed that over 100,000 participants turned up for the street party. Armed with a free guide booklet, we walked around the streets.
I was pretty fascinated with the decorations there. Strings of bright red lanterns had been put up while the grey structures and historical buildings or whatsoever were adorned with an eye-catching designs. IT seemed like the old old streets already came alive with excitement and sounds.
DANG DANG DANG.. Highlight of the day:
The arrival of the Chief Minister of Penang Lim Guan Eng. For sure we met him that day. Well, he was my dad's idol. Come on, Thumbs up & Claps hands to him!!! He indeed had done his great job. Fully support you , MR.Lim! FOR OUR CITIZENS, FOR OUR COUNTRY & FOR OUR FUTURE!
The revelries went on all night. Around 9 something, we went nearby for our dinner and we then went back home.
