DH, the kids (except the twins, who were fast asleep) and I drove to KL-Ampang Elevated Highway just a few minutes before midnight last night to watch from a distance the fireworks at KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre).
As expected, the entire highway was packed with people, with hundreds of cars lined up bumper-to-bumper…literally. We couldn’t stop as both sides of the road were already full of parked cars, so I didn’t get any decent shot of the fireworks extravaganza.
So here’s the next best thing — for me to borrow Reuter’s file pic of fireworks illuminating the world-famous Petronas Twin Towers:-

That’s the KL Tower you see at the centre, partially obscured by the fireworks. It also put on a brilliant lights display, twinkling like a multitude of stars, blinking from turquoise to green to all the other colours of the rainbow.
For once, we didn’t mind getting caught in the middle of an enormous traffic jam :)
Happy New Year everyone!
