Hari Kebangsaan Parade in Ipoh


Yes...yes....this post is 3 months late but better late than never , right. Just to record our trip.

Mamarazzi google about Independence Day parade the night before but there was not much information about that. Not sure of the time and venue but "agak-agak" know the location since the night before we pass by the stage.

It was hard to wake up the next morning. Initially Mamarazzi said aiya just sleep la. But then she saw from our hotel room window, there were many people going to the parade...okay la...woke me up lo. Papa slept in while Mamarazzi and me went and find the parade.

Oh boy.....am so excited

Ho ho ho....so many people in uniform here...this must be the place for the parade. We stopped by and "grab" a nice seat...hmmm.....8am liao...how come haven't started.

Look see look see....saw some people walking to another direction. Aiks...we waited at the wrong place leh.

Come!

Follow me! It's this way. 

Finally found the correct place. Sat quite opposite to the stage where the King/Sultan going to appear. 

Pretty soon , the Sultan of Perak arrived. 

The inspection of the Royal Guards begins.

Pretty Dayang presenting the Royal Family with refreshment....think it's refreshment lah ...too far away to see.

Come on! everyone stand up for our National Anthem and also sing Jalur Gemilang song. Yes! Let's be proud and wave our flag!

Things start get "cooking" when the parade started. Aiyo.....people appeared out of no where blocking our view leh. I climb on Mamarazzi's shoulder to see also cannot see properly.

 
Then Mamarazzi had an idea...let's get out of there.  Off we went further down the road. Not many people here. Can have front line view of the parade passing by. Goooooood idea.

So nice to see them marching by in their full glory.

 
Our boys and girls in their uniform

 
I love this part of the parade. There were so many types of vehicles on display...Hey! that one I saw every morning leh...sharp 8am will bee boo bee boo from the remand center to the Court House leh.

wah...got bicycle wor.....I wanna join the parade too la...can ah?

 
No no no...this one seems to be better...I wanna ride on the speed boat and also the big bike. Vroom! Vroom!

after like two hours, the parade ended. But Mamarazzi insisted to snap some photos along the road. 

Wefie

Merdeka! My first time watching a parade.

  5. Uncle SK also never seen a real parade before, the most watch from TV only.. so actually a nice experience being able to see the parade in another state huh?? maybe the locals already know the whereabouts, so as soon as the parade started, they all rushed in to get the best view.. smart Mamarazzi decided to leave and walked to the end of the road.. even better view right??

  14. This reminds me last time in my secondary school, my school got selected to performed in the pervade, it was fun and tired, indeed we didn't get excepted, after practice, we still have to back to school and study.

  15. Actually I never watched Merdeka parades before as an observer on the road... believe it or not.. but I have participated in them a number of times in my 30ssss... waking up super early and waiting at the padang is no joke.. so that explains why I skip watching them yearly... hahhahaa...

  16. Good idea lah, run to Ipoh to watch the parade. I watched the one in Dataran Merdeka (on TV lah), and was served with even more rude behavior from Hippomama... When they were leaving, she we behaving like she was greater than his husband and the Agong >.< ...

  17. What a happy boy after watching his first parade. Now that reminds me of my childhood where there were only 2 parades that passed the main road near my home. It was the Wesak Day parade once a year and the Taoist Chinese Funerals that passed my road almost every week!!!!! Sobs!

  19. Love parades like these too, but I dislike the standing part. Can be so tiring.........xoox

  20. Small Kucing is so excited to watch the Parade. Small Kucing, good thing Mamarazzi woke you up to go and find the parade. Mamarazzi is so strong to let you sit on her shoulders to try to see the parade. Luckily got a better idea to go further down the road to get a front view.
