#BERSIH4 - My Photography Journey @ Dataran Merdeka, Masjid Jamek & Bukit Jalil


#BERSIH4.0 - My Photography Journey @ Dataran Merdeka , Masjid Jamek and Bukit Jalil
"Prime Minister Najib Razak has become embroiled in a scandal involving state fund debts and allegations of deposits totaling 2.6 billion ringgit paid to his bank account. Razak has denied any wrongdoing. Thousands of people gathered to demand his resignation and a new general election."

Yesterday Bersih Rally was a peaceful journey for all Malaysians except the firecrackers incident. I am glad that the culprit has been caught and this time everyone is safe!! Below are a series of photos taken during my trip to Masjid Jamek and Dataran Merdeka from Bukit Jalil LRT Station. Since the Merdeka celebration has been moved to Bukit Jalil, you can see the crowd coming in to celebrate Merdeka. After comparing the crowds, they came for different purpose.

At Bukit Jalil, they were there mostly with families to celebrate Merdeka day with live music and fireworks at 12am; At Dataran Merdeka, people were there to hope for a clean election, freedom of speech to voice out dissatisfaction and of course a better government and future for the children.

I started my journey from Bukit Jalil. Both Radio and TV was announcing the speech by Malaysia's PM Najib Razak.That would explain why your TV1, TV2, TV3 all showing the same thing. For now I won't explain much on the photos below, hope you could understand the photo stories anyway.

**************************************************
A totally different scenario at Bukit Jalil's Merdeka Celebration. I was easily blend into the crowd although I might be the only Chinese in there. But I can assure you guys that they are definitely friendly and came here for the same reason - the Celebration of Malaysia with live music and fun.

My bulky camera somehow accidentally hit somebody and I quickly apologized, the strangers replied "Okay bang, tak apa" with a smile. That's the moment I feel this is 1Malaysia.

Some party say #Bersih4.0 is a rally by dissatisfied Chinese only. I have no doubt seeing more than 50% of chinese during the Bersih Rally, but I do see people from different culture and ethnic who made their way to this place too. I might be wrong as I couldn't see the overall scene throughout the day. 

But here's one thing I would like to say -  Most of our main media publication and broadcast were somehow being controlled by the government. Sometimes they can only show what they are allowed to show to Malaysian and people with limited access to other media channel (eg. Facebook /Twitter live update), this is definitely harmful to people's mind.

Don't just depends on one single source reading/listen to what they want to tell you, explore more different media channels and start analyze all the different information that you have received. I never say I am 100% supporting Bersih Rally, but I do have a dream to live in a country with happier citizen nationwide. Malaysia is my home, my beloved country.
