Happy 61st Independence Day, Malaysia!

National Day #malaysiabaru

Obviously it would be difficult for us to go all the way to Putrajaya for the national day parade(sources suggested we should reach before 7AM to avoid massive traffic!) so I made us another plan—which is to dress up for photos at Dataran Merdeka instead. KL has always been a favourite for street photography. And boy I can't believe how much it has changed, I used to be around here so often. It's so tourist-friendly(even for the locals) now with road signs everywhere that it's possible to explore KL city just by walking. We took advantage of the LRT right beside our condo and traveled to Masjid Jamek where our short KL street tour began.

FYI it was her first time being exposed to grasses and she's not afraid at all! Making a fuss out of it was because she lost patience for being away from me who's busy setting up the camera and tripod 😒

The weather was super nice to us as well! It was hot and humid but bearable because it's also cloudy from time to time. We have absolutely no meal plans as my main intention was to take photos before the sun rises above us. We made our move to Lim Kee Cafe because it's the only nearer place I could think of and I totally lost track of the hippest cafes in town. What I didn't expect was they serve only toast and half boiled eggs! 😩 We then Grab our way to KLCC to have a proper lunch before we go home by LRT.

I doubted myself if I was making the right plan. I felt bad for having to wake Joe up early on his day off. So at the end of the day I spoke to him, it surprised me when he said he would never come here any other day if it weren't for a day as special as this year's National Day so it's actually good that we made it happen. However I got a little upset & panic with the tripod set up & camera settings earlier, and came home knowing my LR couldn't process my RAW like before, it really gave me heart attack. Thank God the photo outcome was very satisfying. I'm just glad and happy our efforts didn't go to waste, knowing our little one will have these photos to look back at in the future and I certainly can't wait to tell her all about it.
