KL International Tattoo (Pocket Show)

Venue : Star Hill
Date : 01 Sept 2007

Well3...what can I say..I had a blast last night! But before that, let me brief you what is KL International Tattoo..

"In conjunction with 50 years of independence and Visit Malaysia Year 2007 the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism will co-host the KL International Tattoo Show. This tattoo will be an evening performance of military band music and cultural acts from across the world. The event will be held at the Merdeka Stadium, the birth place of our nation's independence.
The KL International Tattoo Show 2007 will run on 3 consecutive evenings, commencing from 7 September 2007. The evening will showcase military bands from Jordan, Brunei, France, India, United States, the Republic of the Philippines, the Republic of Singapore, the Kingdom of Thailand, Korea, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, pipes and drums from the United Kingdom and a Maori cultural group from New Zealand.

The military band from the Malaysian Armed Forces and Royal Malaysian Police, the 'Wira Kris' from the Royal Malaysian Army, the silent drill from the Royal Malaysian Navy and the rhythmic gymnastics from the Royal Malaysian Air Force will be leading the performances on the three nights. The highlight of the show will be a Grand Finale by the massed bands of all participants combining to perform a specially arranged musical score with a synchronised fireworks display which should make it a night to remember."

Surabaya is a big city...bigger than KL...and so we got to go a few the same time goin to send Farid to his new place..First stop..had to buy his prepaid there, so next to our Hotel (which is Hotel Tunjungan), we went to Tunjungan Plaza...its one of the most popular shopping complex Mid Valley...mommy bought some "Product kecantikan"...(which in the end..ade yg takleh bawak balik pon!! Coz' bottle melebihi 1litre..cessss!) :P hehe..we also went to stop at Jambatan Merah Plaza..(or JMP)...mommy bought some nice batiks! :D We were also recommended to eat a Bon Cafe..a very nice restaurant...western menu...Indonesian dish..and 3 settings for dining room...Quiet unique... *wink* We also went to some "ole2" shop..played with their scary lookin' masks..hehe..and mommy bought....MORE BATIKS!! *lol*

All in all...their shopping complex...a bit like ours...they even have Sogo there! So...only shop what was necessary..I still prefer Bandung for shopping place! heheh...Our mission was to get Farid settled down and not to shop so much!..hahaha....konon~
