916 Street Party in Miri During Malaysia Day is 1/3 Malaysian

*crickets*
Ooops, wrong venue. It's not located at the Indoor Stadium


Having been rained on by Mother Nature, this 16th September "Malaysia Day" event is being hailed as the "biggest and most happening event" in Miri. Probably because there isn't much else bigger or happening in Miri at the same time. Well aside from the jams caused.

The event, which is essentially one big concert on a well-used main street, caused traffic jams and inconveniences to those that live or work in the area. And one of those inconvenienced is yours truly. Let's face it. If you're going to hold a concert in the middle of a highly used main road next to a housing estate and closing off that road instead of... I don't know, maybe, you know.. using the INDOOR STADIUM that has PLENTY OF PARKING instead of letting people PARK THEIR CARS IN FRONT OF RANDOM HOUSES BLOCKING ACCESS, yeah I figured not many would be too thrilled.

THE STADIUM IS RIGHT THERE. USE IT. IT HAS PARKING SPACES AND SOUND SYSTEMS AND SEATS. USE IT. IT HAS A ROOF TO PREVENT RAIN FROM COMING IN. USE IT. IT HAS TOILETS INSTEAD OF BUSHES AND TREES AND DRAINS. USE IT. IT ALSO HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR EXACTLY THESE KINDS OF PURPOSES.
The Miri Stadium looks like a blurry Robotic Blue & White Tortoise, so it must be awesome to use, right?

So enough with the complaints. Because I don't really need to. Just go out and ask someone, they'll say more things than the Internet space can contain.

So this concert consists of performances by bands and DJs that are not Malaysian.

Not Malaysian Bands and DJs, such as :

- international disc-jockey (DJ) Honey G from Bangkok
- the Mocha Girls from Philippines

 There's a singer too;

- Mizz Nina from Kuala Lumpur

Ah, well that last one was at least, from Malaysia. Scoring 1/3 isn't so bad I guess. It's an acceptable standard in these parts. In Malaysia, one-third is a pass with flying colors.
