Guns Cameras .. Free Food. KL City Style.

A weekend ago..

What a marvelously cool Sunday for a morning stroll in the city.

Katak-katak katak-katak katak-katak (A kid taught me this. According to kid, this is how the helicopter sounded like).

Definitely the safest city ever. Why? So many armed policemen standing guard. So many patrol cars standing by. Snatch thefts and break-ins, no wonder none of such news appeared in newspapers lately.Noted most of the highly trained dedicated personnel had at least 3 stars on their shoulders and various colourful badges dangling on their chests (kid insisted that the metal pin-ons on a uniform are heavy else why the wearers are stout – due to gravity pull, sweat so much and appear angry most times?).

Behind the lines of heavy bang-bang and click-click artilleries, a truly Malaysian breakfast awaits. Free no less. No wonder so much fuss! Boxes full of packets of Nasi Lemak (Coconut milk infused steamed rice) with a wide variety of ingredients:-Sadly no sponsorer of Teh Tarik (Pulled Milk Tea) found. Never mind, this was good too.

teckiee said...

HAHAHAHAHA they should start distributing nasi lemak and all sorts of food during the next gathering/riot. Bet it will help calm down the crowd.

Honey Star said...

Wait.... the nasi for the police or the public?

True foodie indeed! in that crazy situation can still take pics of food :D

Jason said...

It looks more like a sports event than riot!

Tummythoz said...

Everybody, it was actually an annual function organised by Bar Council to commemorate Human Rights Day.

precious pea, think crowd there was hoping to catch some police-citizen action than food.

new kid on the blog & Njoe, why not. In any situation happy sad tension relax we still need to feed-wat.

big boys oven, for the walk or just the food?

meiyen, the focus was how our government over-reacted to a peaceful Human Rights Day celebration.

mamabok, haha actually the free food was mostly left untouched. Most were too shocked and aghasted with the uniformed personnels' behaviour.

team bsg, heard anwar was having coffe at KLIA that time..

nic (khkl), something different-eh.

teckiee, preferably distribute to our dedicated men&women in uniforms. They were the impatient ones.

honey star, the air was not that tense. Really. The policemen not within the many cameras view looked bored. Few were smoking, chatting and making catcalls. The again, with so many well trained boys in blue one should feel extremely safe, no?

jason, sadly no riot. Just witnessed some one sided brutality.

Simon said...

3 star on the shoulder eh, that will make those policemen either a CI (Chief Inspector) or ASP (Assistant Superintendent of Police)

Kopi Soh said...

Honey Star said...
