National Day seen in full splendour

Patriotism on show: Sultan abdullah and tunku azizah enjoying the colourful displays on show at the 62nd national day parade in putrajaya. the queen was also seen using her phone numerous times to take photos of the event.
PUTRAJAYA: The sunny skies above the federal administrative capital was the perfect setting for the celebration.
The 2019 National Day parade rolled out in splendour, with countless Malaysians gathered here to mark the country’s 62nd year of independence.
Some arrived as early as 5am. Families came with their young children in tow.

These early birds wanted to secure a good spot along Persiaran Perdana to watch the parade, as well as to avoid traffic congestion.

They came with flags and Merdeka-themed outfits. Their other “props” included folding chairs, mats and baskets of food.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and husband Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim were among the earliest VIPs to arrive at the main stage situated in front of the Palace of Justice.
At 7.50am, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad appeared.
The 94-year-old drove himself to the event in a maroon Proton Saga.
His wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, who was admitted to hospital earlier last week for mild diarrhoea, was absent.
At 8am, the crowd cheered again for the arrival of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah.
This is the first year Sultan Abdullah attended the Merdeka celebrations as king, following his appointment as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Jan 31.
After the king inspected the guard-of-honour, what followed was the singing of Negaraku and the raising of the Jalur Gemilang.
At the same time, a 14-gun royal salute – representing the 13 states and the federal territory of Malaysia – was carried out by the 41st Ceremonial Battery of the Royal Artillery Regiment.
In line with this year’s National Day theme “Sayangi Malaysiaku: Malaysia Bersih” and the government’s drive to battle corruption, an officer from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) was chosen to lead the recitation of the Rukun Negara.
MACC chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Zuhairie Abu Bakar was joined by 62 others comprising of teachers, students, civil servants, as well as representatives of the corporate sector.
The parade then kicked off with a special performance of drama and musical dances by 1,627 participants. It conveyed a storyline about the dangers of corruption and power abuse.
The main showcase was the parade, which saw the participation of 14,885 people from 34 contingents.
An aerial march-past by the Royal Malaysian Air Force was a crowd favourite, as spectators cheered while the jet fighters performed breathtaking stunts above Dataran Putrajaya.
The finale was a performance of Sayangi Malaysiaku: Malaysia Bersih by pop punk rock band Bunkface.- Star
