Yesterday, Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia sent around 40 people to Hari Belia (National Youth Day) which was held in Bukit Jalil. I also got an oppurtunity to join this group of people. We prepared for this day for at least one week, as the Sabha had to send out messege to call all the Sikh Youth to come and join in the fun and also to represent the Sikhs to show support the Sports Ministery and the Malaysian Youths.
We waited for everyone to come at Sabha House by 7.00pm. Then we left to Bukit Jalil by the Van. All the guys were requested to wear kurta and all the girls were requested to wear punjabi suit. We reached at Bukit Jalil at 8.00pm. As we walked to the Stadium Putra, there were many exhibition booths set up along the way. It was nice.
As we were walking in the Stadium all the other races were looking at the Phai fellows and wondering, From where this Phai Fellows come ready??? hehe, This is because it was the first time the Sikhs send a team for this National Youth Day. We were proud of it. :)
As we walk to the arena, the noise and the people cheering was damm havoc. It was just superb. The stadium was pack as there was 15,000 youths attended this function. The event kicked off with some youths perfomed Brake-Dance. They perfomed very good, as they did many fantastic skills. After that there was this Dikir Barat and Nasyid performance(Malay's Traditional Dance)
Then the Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak and theYouth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman came. They was escorted by a band.
After that the Deputy Prime Minister gave speech and he advised the youths in his speech to Trust in your instincts and let it lead you to the right path. He also said said life is about making choices and that is what youths should do when faced with problems. Then he launched the programme, there were fireworks display.
As the programme continued, we left as we were hungry and tired of standing. All of us had alot of fun there.~ A few of the Guys and Girls before entering the Stadium~
