Anti-ISA But Love Is In The Air

It rained pretty heavily in PJ during the evening. But sometime after 7.30pm, it ceased completely, making the air crisp and fresh - just in time for the candlelight vigil.

There was a pretty good crowd, considering the announcement was only put up 2 days ago. Most of us wore our 'Free RPK' t-shirts.

Don't say we Malaysians don't know how to have fun.

We lit our candles, formed our 'NO 2 ISA' inscription (using candles on the ground), made jokes, took photos. Really had fun. Those of you who didn't turn up, you don't know what you've missed.

We missed our Malay brothers and sisters, because most of them apparently had their Raya open house functions but it was really good to see Boom & Rody and their family. :)

While we were gathered at the field, there were a bunch of cars driving past and they blared their horns in support of the vigil. Those of us participating in the vigil, cheered and waved in response.

At that moment, it seemed like we were one with all, regardless of race, creed and religion.

Haris asks, "I just want to ask if it was just me, or did the rest of you also feel love in the air at the Jalan Timur padang at PJ last night?"

That's precisely what it was, bro.

It was my first ever participation and yes, I did feel the love even though I was late!

I'll be there again next week!
