Malaysia celebrates 50 Years of Independence

Today, Malaysia celebrates 50 Years of Independence from Britain.

For the past few days, some of the main roads downtown were closed for parade rehearsals causing massive jams. Being the big 50 years, this year's national parade was held in the nation's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Many locals and tourists alike thronged to where the parade was held. No, I wasn't one of them though it would be quite an experience to be there personally. The crowd and being under the hot sun for several hours are not really my idea of fun. I watched the parade on tv in the comfort of my home.

For an idea of the parade, here's a little snippet - not much to see but at least something. Happy Merdeka!
