'Himpunan Pemimpin Bersama Rakyat.' at Perak Stadium Ipoh

The MB of Perak hosted the event for 5 MBs and CM from Perak, Kedah, Penang, Kelantan and Selangor last night at Stadium Perak

The MB's of Penang, Kelantan and Selangor could not make it. However another "event will be planned and these absent MB's would be invited again..." The rakyat of Perak applauded positively when the MC asked if the absent MB's would be wellcome for a 2nd round....

The supporters / traders started arriving around lunch time....


..these PAS personel from 'Unit Amal' Perak branch were on hand to ensure work and traffic were being arranged accordingly...they actually did a great job....


..the scene at 7pm....getting ready for the evening prayers...

..on the track....in front of the grandstand...


..muslimin and muslimat....note the aisles behind are still empty....

..this is my first time witnessing such a scene at Perak Stadium...

..prayers are done......

...everyone arranges their mats on the field....looked like a carnival under the bright floodlights..


,,,supporters from Pandan Selangor......

..supporters from Bukit Gantang.....

..album shots....latecomers saying prayers before all the speakers arrive..

...time 8pm+ ...awaiting the arrival of the VIP's....

they arrive at 9pm.....




Some of the topics mentioned.....
- throw out race politics.." Saya Anak Malaysia keturunan Tiong Hwa"...Nga.. all applauded.
- the Babi issue in Selangor ..."stop making an issue of this...as long as it has a high tech operation and enviromentlly friendly..proceed...' .......applause from all......
- MB's going into empty offices....
- Transparency...tenders..etc.
Light note...when Nga Kor Ming spoke in Mandarin the whole stadium applauded positively..where he stated that all the Malays in Perak understood Mandarin....claps.....

..the crowd listening attentively on the field....

..view from the speakers stand...a sea of white caps.....


..'Special Force' personel all the way from Kelantan.....

..it was a good night...a moment in history...possibly the starting of a new government in Malaysia...there must have been 40,000 in the crowd...i'm not sure...I heard a figure of 50,000..

this was the scene at 7pm....


..the scene at 9pm.....

..the scene at 11pm...more than half the field is filled...and the aisles are also filled..

..these are supporters not just from Perak but other states as well...can this night on 14th April 2008 be used as a gauge to determine the sentiments of the rakyat....???...
Well we'll just have to wait through the following months to find out.

KK,

I really hope the people of Perak strive and maintain this harmony of living together. You have a good King, an educated Regent and a humble Menteri Besar. I envy you.

No doubt, they are differences among us and there would be disagreements along the way. But always, always look at the big picture.

Walau-eh, I admire you for the dedication to be there from day to night to capture the scene for us. I hope we get something like this in Penang.
