My mom and I waited from 7.30pm for the arrival of Prime Minister and VIPPs at the entrance of Dataran Centrio. I surprised to see many people really are very queuing so long to get free food, such as such as Chinese Fried Rice, Satay, burgers, ans many types of local cakes 'Kueh' such as Chinese Love letters, layer cake, pandan cake, steamed 'huat kueh' and many others when they walked through the food distribution of traditional cuisines! They still serve the traditional Chinese food delicacies to the public, from 6pm till late night, around 10pm! Woww...
