Merdeka countdown celebration in Bangkok-30.08.08

Although we are far away up north, we still had the chance to be together with other Malaysians living here for the countdown to Merdeka...31.08.08. It was a brilliant idea for the Malaysian Embassy and the Kelab Malaysia of Thailand to hold this kind of get together of Malaysians of all races living in Thailand, particularly in Bangkok. We reached the embassy at about 8pm and the hall was already almost filled up. There were 12 tables of ten and judging from crowd the number of guests was about 150 as there were a number of people standing without seats.

8.05pm...still early but the seats are almost filled up.
