Freedom of Entry, 1/2 half

I’m totally fried in this weather.
I just got back from the first half of the Freedom of Entry ceremony.
Forget long legged sailormoon… I saw lots and lots of sailors there
Some of them are hunky hunk too.
I repeat… SOME.
Not all.

There were the French Navy, US, Brunei and of course, the Malaysian Navy.

Knowing that the VIPs are gonna be late as usual, BB, Cici and I went on to take pictures here and there.
From exhibition booths, to kids colouring contest and to fake & real sailor.
Semua ku belasah.

Sailor Izan & Me

Bonjour! Comment allez-vous? Pas mal?
We also took some photos with the French Navies.
Nah~~ not much of a savoir faire of the typical glamourous
Parisienne going on just now.
They basically look and sound….. err… French! XD
But very friendly though

Oh! Did I tell you that my sis involved as one of the ‘panji-panji’ (board) holder?
Such a cutie

Sis Sarah

Anyhow, after our quick brunch at Little Italy, BB and I headed
off to Old Sabah Port (Where MV Doulos docked in previously)
Kurang asam

Who said the boat ride is free?
Kena bayar lah!
*pancaran jelingan maut to BB*
But it was only RM2… so no biggie.

Navy Boat Ride

Surfing & Cruising

Sotong & me

The navy boat ride was fun, but it was still no match to my experience with Caleb & Lai when we did our marine video shooting project with UMS. Rock, I tell you.

We also went into the Navy ships.
Coolness ;) I like!
*Will upload this pics later*
In the mean time, I give you Mr. Tentacle man

Mr. Tentacle

Since the weather was hot like porn, BB and I decided to
head back home to rest before going for the 2nd half of the event.
Most photos are with BB.
Will blog them more later when he gave me the pics..
.. and provided that I can find my HP transfer cable
*Porak weh if I 3G ALL photos from my HP to the net*
Am off for a shower now.

Shout-Out! : Freedom of Entry

I just got the itinerary from my sis.
Just thought you guys might be interested.
Pls note that I’m typing this at 1.30am

Later in the morning, today, Saturday, the 26th of April 2008, there’ll be a Freedom of Entry event in Padang Merdeka AND Old Sabah Port.

I have never been involved in this event before but according to BB it’s rather interesting to be part of it.


Well baby, if it’s interesting and fun with a capital ‘F’, I’m up for anything!


So this is what the brochure said about Freedom of Entry :

The “Freedom of Entry Ceremony” is an old Naval Tradition that began during medieval times, where the City or town council confers the right of the “Navy” to march “Swords drawn, drums beating, band playing, colours flying and bayonets fixed”. The right to march through is usually conferred with a “Scroll” by the Lord Mayor. The “Scroll” will then allow the Navy to exercise its newly conferred right to march through the city. The Colours are of great significance to each and every sailor, representing the central rallying point in battle in the event that they are separated from their colleagues during the melee.

This tradition signifies the true bonds of friendships, and often the expectation that the Navy whom the honour was bestowed upon would assist in the defence of the City. The Nave is then bound to protect the city from any invasion or attack…

Interested? Then be sure to be at:

Padang Merdeka
Time: 9am – 10pm

- Freedom of Entry

BB has been covering this event twice and I was told that

"Oiii Faranina!!! We're not going for picnic la!"
Oh... Yeah...

PS: Jangan malas la! Pergi saja.
