I had been travelling a lot lately, and was hardly home during the weekends over the past 2 months. One of the weekends that I was home, we made a trip to Putrajaya on Saturday night to watch the float parade. The parade was supposed to start at 8.30pm but by the time we finished dinner and arrived in Putrajaya, it was close to 9pm. And there was a massive jam going into Precinct 2, where the Putrajaya Lake is located.
We were lucky that we managed to park close by and quickly made our way to the lake side amidst the many stalls and floral exhibition, not to mention the massive crowd. We went all the way down to the edge of the lake.

Soon after, the brightly illuminated and gaily decorated floats started floating by. There were two international entries, one from Suzhou and the other from Kenya. The rest were representating the various states in Malaysia, showcasing the tourist attractions in each state.
Melaka - the least pretty float, in my opinion
Perak, my hometown - not that nice
The night ended with a fireworks show at about 10.30pm.
