Goodbye 2008 Welcome 2009


Today is the New Year’s Eve and in a few more hours  thousands of people will flock to Dataran Merdeka, Bukit Bintang area, Mid Valley Megamall, Suria KLCC, The Mines and Sunway Pyramid. Most of the people want to celebrate together with their family members, loved ones and friends.

AS the year 2008 comes to a close and most people in the city look forward to the year ahead and start to welcome the year 2009.

Police has warned the revelers not to repeat the mayhem which happened during the Christmas Eve’s celebration. And don’t spend the New Year in the police lock-up.

The Christmas Eve’s celebration on Wednesday was just over few day ago. However part of the crowd turned rowdy and this result The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) hit out at irresponsible revellers who littered Jalan Sultan Ismail in Bukit Bintang areas

At Gurney Drive revelers indiscriminately sprayed foam at passing vehicles, some even kicked or stomped on cars. Two students were reported to have remanded on obstruction police.

To my shocking I read a report in the newspapers that there will be a mega sex party on New Year’s Eve that is scheduled to be held in Johor Baru . Under-wear off – that is one of the conditions for guys and the girls must wear only G-string panties and be prepared to take them off after midnight to usher in the new year.

Is this becoming our Malaysian way of celebrating a joyful occasion in this coming New Year. Will the people accept this kind of festive celebration?

Goodbye 2008 Welcome 2009! Here I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday season, and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2009.

Happy New Year.


Flash back the 2008 countdown………When the tower clock at Dataran Merdeka struck 12midnight , showers of colorful fire works display flashed immediately lighting up the night sky. The crowd of revellers started cheering each other and welcome the year 2008.

    Thank you for your concern. I think the earthquake was happened in Indonesia not Malaysia. Indonesia was rocked by two strong and several moderate earthquakes early Sunday.

    One of the quakes — a 7.3-magnitude tremor — was felt as far away as Australia and sent small tsunamis into Japan’s southeastern coast.

  9. Well, visuallens, I’m glad you had an eventful and interesting New Year. May the year ahead bring you great joy and good health.
