If you are in my friend list of have been following my Facebook and instagram, you’d realize that I don’t believe in being too comfortable in marriage and I like to go on dates with my husband. Well, just because you are married with kids and been busy with work almost 24/7, you have to put your love-life aside. If you do, your life will be mundane and you’ll resent that. I made such mistake once and I have learned the lesson the hard way.
28th May 2015. About one week after my husband’s birthday and our wedding anniversary, we are still ‘celebrating’. Well, sort of. There is this event going on in Putrajaya known as Magic of The Night and I’ve been dying to watch it. You see, I’m a huge fan of fantastical and cultural stuff. And so, despite the fact that it was a working night and my husband have loads of commitments, he stole a bit of his time and brought me to watch beautiful boat parade, cultural performances and fireworks display in Marina Putrajaya.
Here’s sharing with you some of the amazing boat parading that night. Each boats represent either a participating state, company or a country.
