Thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone! I was so happy to hear from you :D
I met up with imBApeh and Vanila and they helped to take care of my stuff while I was doing rounds shooting [thanks, guys!]. Then when crowds have really massed up on the field, I decided to find a perch where I can get a good view of the speakers.
First up to come on was the chairman of Gerakan Mansuh ISA, whose name escapes me for the moment. After his short speech came Lim Guan Eng’s high powered speech, and he was especially proud of Zaid Ibrahim’s actions.
Then came Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim and a PAS bigshot whose name also escapes me for the moment. Sorry about that, gentlemen. You were still rather epic in your respective speeches :p If you know their names, please drop a note in the comments, yeah?
Then to massive applause came Lim Kit Siang, setting the crowd on fire with cheers of ‘Bian Tian’ [Sky Change] and 9-1-6.
Finally, at the grand finale, with some epic orchestral music from Terminator 2 coming out from nowhere, came Anwar Ibrahim delivering his charismatic
sales pitch epic speech. Man, did this guy turn the crowd into a ball of energy. It was unbelievable.
As his speech came to an end, I was almost expecting fireworks and carnival clowns coming out marching from somewhere. Oh well, a man can dream. Anyway, here are some more random shots from around the gathering.
Hope you enjoyed all the pics!
Now, share yours and drop me a link, yeah?
