After a lin chi kang break, we headed to The National Monument. My friend and I were excited about it since ehem this is our first time ever going to see the National Monument live. Ihihi...well, people always could not see what is in front of them right? Ok...wrong.. :D
Ok, let's start moving!
|Symbiosis - can be seen along the journey|
|We are going to cross the junction. Can you see the tram? |
If you want to save your feet, you can hop on the tram to experience Perdana Lake Garden.
|Yes! National Monuments are just |
|Don't forget to equip yourself with a bottle of plain water. You might find that the steps towards the monument could reach a thousand steps more...or more. Heheh.|
|And some chocolates to give you quick energy. Ferrero Rocher did it quite well. :D|
|There is a garden you have to pass through before you can feast your eyes with the monument. This is Asian Sculpture Garden, if I am not mistaken. Quite well-lanscaped, with small man-made stream, plants, benches, and sculptures. Cool.|
|Hey hey hey...look at who we found here. Ok. He is no celebrity. But he showed off - really showed off - with his skill and skateboard.|
|Ahah. Souvenir shop! Trust me that the souvenirs - postcards, fridge magnets, t-shirts, caps, hats, bags, parios - look very Malaysian and one can find interesting stuff as souvenirs for their foreigners friends. This is the place to get them.|
|Pool and fountain|
|The national flower of Malaysia; Hibiscus rosa-sinensis|
|We found this structure on our way up to the monument area.|
And I suddenly felt like I was in a scene of The Lord of the Ring!
|And, we found a gated wall with the Malaysian Crest on it. Behind this wall is a great sculpture. A monument. A place of remembrance. To remember our warriors who had died defending our country...|
