Thousands of people gathered at the car park area of Stadium Perak, for a programme called “Perhimpunan Rakyat Perak Aman Jaya”, where there were traditional performances, free food, and the longest display of fireworks that lasted for ten minutes!
This event, fully sponsored by Keris Properties Sdn. Bhd., was in support of Perak Barisan Nasional candidates for this upcoming General Elections. Polling Day, as a reminder, is Sunday, May 5th, 2013. Do exercise your right and come out to vote!
Caretaker Perak Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri DiRaja Dr. Zambry Abd. Kadir, who is the Chairman of Perak Barisan Nasional, introduced some of his candidates: Chang Kok Aun (N29 Kepayang), Khoo Boon Chuan (N26 Tebing Tinggi), Ceylyn Tay Wei Lung (N25 Canning), Dato’ Thong Fah Chong (N27 Pasir Pinji) and Kathleen Wong Mei Yin (P064 Ipoh Timur). Of course, Zambry is himself a candidate, for N52 Pangkor.
Zambry’s speech was followed by the “longest” fireworks display. It lasted ten minutes! Then, while guests feasted on the local food, namely fried noodles, murtabak, rojak buah, chicken curry, cendol and teh tarik, Dato’ Thong also gave a short speech.
Check out my photos and videos, for the action.
