National Day Parade

Monday, September 1, 2008

31 August 2008 - Woke up early in the morning around 5.30am and arrived Ipoh Padang around 6.30am. Met my friends from our division there. Oh yeah, I am representing St John Ambulance for the National Day Parade, just like the Michaelian Military Band. There were 25 nursing (female) and 25 ambulance (male) members and I am one of them. Since there were 2 rehearsal before, so it's not weird for me anymore. The St John Ambulance were lead by Sir Chan, an officer from headquarters. Around 8.30pm, we followed the rest of the squad who were also marching into the sea of spectators (the streets). There were approximately 80 squad which consist of around 50 person who involved. All the squads were lead by the first squad - Michaelian Military Band, also known as former Champion for the parade. We walk passed a lot of people. The Grand Stand was located near the police station where all the menteri besar sitting there. Although both the St John Ambulance and the Michaelian Military Band did not manage to get any placing for the parade, but this will surely give a great experience for us. Till next year, ~With pride shall we march~ .
