Launching of the Harmony Arch @ Carpenter Street, Kuching

March 8th, 2007 · 4 Surrendered

I thought it’s just the usual CNY dinner organised by associations last night(07.03.07). When we reached there, then we realised that it’s the launching of the Harmony Arch at Carpenter Street. I thought they had launched it long time ago but not yet.

Before the dinner started, we were served with some CNY tid bits while waiting for those big people to come. The Chief Minister of Sarawak would be launching it. At first I was thinking of sitting there while waiting, then my bro suggested that we went to the front to have a look since I’m bringing the camera along, why not?

The launching is organised by 25 Community Associations of Kuching Division. The commitee members were lining up waiting to greet the arrival of our “beloved” CM.

CM reached the podium and activated the fireworks to officiate it. This is the first time I came so close to the CM in person and my first time took his photo. *LOL*

Dragon dance performance started and the CM and the rest walked into the arch then came back for group photo shot. Then dinner started. The dinner wasn’t typical Chinese dinner. It’s from Bangkok Thai Restaurant. We had pineapple rice, tom yam, sweet and sour chicken feet skin, sweet and sour fried chicken. We only had 4 dishes, it was very late already and we didn’t want to wait for the rest of the dishes anymore. We left after that the 4th dish. The fifth dish was beef(I think…), I wanted to eat it but my parents wanted to leave already, so what to do? Left with them lo~~~


While we had our 3rd dish, fireworks display started. According to them, the fireworks cost about RM20K. The fireworks were all very big ones. I didn’t expect to get such nice photos of them hehehe… Too bad I only started my photo taking after I’m done with my food else there will be more photos to share.

    Many people didn’t know about it. I only knew when I’m there even the booklet was in front of me, I also didn’t pay attention. Until my bro asked me to go to the front and I noticed something there then I knew about it hahaha…
