Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade 2012 @Sunway Pyramid

Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival or Lantern Festival already over but I still can't get enough of the delicious mooncakes and the colourful "tanglung"' lanterns. This is my 2nd year joining Sunway Pyramid's Mid-Autumn Festival celebration. The RAYA Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade 2011 @Sunway Pyramid was my blogpost for last year's celebration. Marching into the Moonlit Night, Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade resounds the spirit of 1Malaysia.
At about 7pm, the crowd began to gather @Blue Entrance of Sunway Pyramid.
People from different cultural background and races came together to join this celebration.

Rows of red Chinese lanterns were lined on display with riddles in Chinese characters dangling for all to see in the ‘Chai Deng Mi’ activity. A loving couple was joining the ‘Chai Deng Mi’ activity.
I wanted to join the ‘Chai Deng Mi’ activity but it was too difficult. :(
School children from SJK (C) Chee Wen kick started the event by performing a few Chinese cultural dances, demonstrating how traditional culture is even treasured by the young.

“The Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates family reunion, and the Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade is akin to an extended family gathering. This is indeed a beautiful and uplifting portrait of racial harmony and national solidarity,” said HC Chan, CEO of Sunway Pyramid

The Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade, officiated by Senator Kohilan Pillay, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, is one of the highlights in Sunway Pyramid’s Mid-Autumn celebration, jointly organised by Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) and Sunway Pyramid
Following that, Senator Kohilan launched the Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade and led the parade with thousands of people following behind them.
