Kuching DUN Official Opening

Phew... I can barely catch up with my schedule these days. Being away from Kuching for some future related endeavor, 800++ photos from my buddy's wedding pending to be filtered and tonnes of paperwork and simulation test at work, I felt physically and mentally drained. But thanks to some quality sleep last night, I was able recover.

Just wanna post something on the current (maybe not so current anymore) hoo-hah of Kuching city, the opening of the new DUN of Sarawak. This new landmark was officially open by the Agong on 27 July 2009. It was broadcasted live by the national TV stations. The opening of the prominent building also coincide with the Rulers Meeting which was held at non other than this new DUN building. Apparently there was also a Regatta which took place at the Sarawak River.



My photo buddy, Allen asked me to join him for photo shoot session of the firework display at night. We both thought the fireworks will start at around 7:30pm but to our dismay it didn't start till 10pm++. After waiting for more than 3 hours (we even joked we could catch a full Harry Potter movie and still be on time to catch the fireworks), our patience was paid off because we Kuchingites were treated to a rare HUGE 15 minutes display of fireworks. I will just let the photos do the talking here.


Boom...


Boom...


Pow...

And the aftermath after the display...
