Let's Party!

Georgetown and Malacca were in-scripted into the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO as the historic cities along the Strait of Malacca July this year. Malaysians should be proud with such honor, being acknowledged for our tireless effort in heritage preservation as well as being able to share such marvelous places of such importance to humanity and universal interest with the rest of world. We have all the reasons to party.

Party we did. There was a huge concert in town celebrating the occasion in November. In typical Malaysian style, there were so much pomp and pageantry, song and dance. Even the King and Queen were there. It was indeed joyous and colorful night.

Well at the same time, the UNESCO World Heritage committee was reviewing to revoke the World Heritage Site status of Georgetown, following the approval of FOUR high rise hotel development project in the heritage core zone and buffer zone. 

Such a big slap in the face.

Yay! Party!
