23rd February 2013.
Both of us went out to Bukit Layang-layang with Syed Shik just after lunch to see for the first time, the18th Pasir Gudang World Kite Festival which was held from 19th to 24th February 2013. This internationally acclaimed event has been hosted since 1995. Estimated 15,000 people turned up that day according to Mr On Jabbar , the mayor of Pasir Gudang. It was an event which had enjoyed continuous coverage by Malaysian media.
We loved the colourful event very much.
