Everyone waited and waited for the arrival of the VIPs. The night sky started with lightning at a distance, and started drizzling. Participants and audiences could not help wondering ‘”would it rain?” and “when would the event actually start?”.

Some official publications equate Colours of Malaysia to the Rio Carnival Samba Parade. I think we are still far from the world class carnival but it is better than none.

There were few floats, some really need some improvement work to bring the world stage. The rest were: mobile dustbin, bicycles, superbikes (cool team of solely lady bikers), 200 Porsches, tricycles etc.

I used a point and shot camera to record video for most scenes. For better quality pictures, please refer to the news media. Only media were allowed to roam at the avenue. As a tourist, your view might be obstructed by the security guards, structure beams or other obstructions.

It was kind of fun to view the props without colours, very different from what you could see o TV live broadcast.

I have to give big applauses to the fellow Malaysian performers who gave their 100% performance despite the rain. I seen few of them felt down on the slipper rubber mat. You can see the dirty water on the floor, there was where all the performers sit on during the show.

I am grateful that Malaysia is truly a colourful country. I do not like to use flash but when the condition is dark (some Malaysians call it BLACK), we need some lights.
