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.
