Merdeka Eve @ Marketplace, Kuala Lumpur

Despite being down with food poisoning, I headed to Kuala Lumpur to check out the fireworks. To me, no Merdeka Celebration is complete without fireworks.
ivN suggested Marketplace, a pub cum restaurant at Off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng. The place has an excellent view of the Petronas Twin Towers.

Although we foresee that we will be stuck in a massive jam heading to Kuala Lumpur, it took us less than half an hour to reach Kuala Lumpur from Petaling Jaya vide Jalan Tun Razak.
Marketplace was buzzing with people. The place was crowded.
ivN was with his friends while Sharon Dilirius, Melvin, Angeline and I hung out at the balcony waiting for the fireworks to start. One photographer already stationed herself there to catch the fireworks.
5 minutes before the clock hits 12AM, patrons started to gather at the balcony. Some were equipped with party packs such as poppers and whistles.

We had no clock to countdown hence most people waited for the firework as a signal that the clock has hit 12AM.
Then everyone started to realise something is amiss. There were no fireworks!
The disappointed crowd had to fake their own countdown and make use of all the party packs. I guess the most disappointed person would the photographer.

Those whit and yellow spots are actually balloons.
*groan* it’s Monday again.
