Malaysia Day - September 16 2011

Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia.

Everybody loves a parade and the people of Kota Kinabalu are no exception as seen in the images below. We were very lucky to be there when KK celebrated Malaysia Day!

There is also a blog posting of the parade by a local person, it can be seen HERE. With quite a few photos and a little about the parade as well.

my previous blog posts on Kota Kinabalu are here:

further KK updates will be posted soon
