Most of my friends decided to have a quiet new year this year. But I wanted to see fireworks hence I took the risk of being stuck in a jam and headed straight to KLCC.
But it only took me 10 minutes to reach KL. I parked my car in my office and walked towards KLCC. The roads weren’t jam at all. I guess it’s because of the heavy rain prior to the event.
There was some sort of free rave sponsored by Celcom, a telephone service provider. International DJs, Filterheadz and Above and Beyond were spinning.
Backstage. KLCC park is behind the wall. Look at the amount of people!
Since the rave was free, all sort of people ranging from tudong clad girls to foreigners attended the rave. Some were standing on the dance floor like they’re watching a show but some understood the whole concept of rave, hence they danced.
DJ Blink was already spinning when I arrived. The crowd seems responsive. But one of the Filterheadz boys commented that the crowd was a little bit cold. Quite true, I could only see the front row and the middle row of the crowd dancing to the music.

However, as soon as Filterheadz took over, the crowd started dancing. They started off with some house and moved to techno. Filterheadz were great!
17 Seconds before 2006!
As soon as the clock hit 12AM, fire works sprung out from the bushes. The first few blasts were great but soon the remaining fireworks were covered by the thick smoke. At last, fireworks!!
The crowd celebrating year 2006
Above and Beyond took over an hour later. The crowd were responding well. In response to that, the organizers threw loads of glow sticks to the crowd.

The rave ended at 2AM.
Unfortunately, 2006 doesn’t seem to be significant to me. It’s just another year. Despite the negativity, I hope for a good year!
Happy New Year everyone!
