yah and nana got wrist bands that were sold at the LUMINARIA tent. then we walked to the ASTRO tent where we got tattoos and had our hair all blinged up for the run. we wanted to do the face painting but the line was too long and we didn't wanna wait. there was this mannequin at the SAY NO TO TOBACCO tent with 2 glass bottles filled with cotton as lungs. i was laughing looking at it cause it looks so dumb there; posing like he was all ready for the runway but now, his cotton lungs are all messed up.
cyclists that took 293 days to cycle from the northern region down to bukit jalil. their quest is to educate the people about cancer and also to bring love and hope for the survivors, their families, and also not forgetting those who have passed due to this grave illness. they look so cool. i envied them so much and wished that i could partake in this cycle relay someday in the future. shutterbugs snapping away at the cyclists.
little cindy, a survivor. all dolled up to celebrate life.
a banner made from pictures of survivors. this banner was held all the way through the first round of the survivors walk.
finally, the supporters turn to join in the relay.
sweating after a few laps of running and continued walking.
while the relay went on, other events and activities start to take place. people were camping, having a cookout, dancing, performing, it was so FUN! it was like madigras (not that i have been to one, but really wish to go) with a good cause. although many lives were lost due to cancer, the families of the deceased did not show any remorse. infact there were only smiles that i could see.
elvis made a comeback.
words of strength and courage
bags og light: at about midnight, these bags which contain a tea candle, will be lighted to mark the people survivors and those who have passed. the bags were lined up all around the perimeter of the field and the crowd totally respected the formation and did not temper with it.
after much tawaf-ing the track, we decided to just hang and look at the bags of light and of course snapping away.....
this was given away for free by one of the sponsors. SCORE!!! on my part hehe. ok, so it is those back logged ones. at least something for me to read kan?
ma, cermin mata i patah masa i lari tu and the handle went missing cause the nana's shorts that i wore got a hole in the pocket. *hint*
