Though the highlight of New Years’ Eve in Kuala Lumpur was the fireworks display, there was a bit more to it than just that.
The night started with a walk around busy streets with packed open-air restaurants.
I ended up walking towards Independence Square, having heard of a live band and a fireworks show that was going to happen here.
A number of bands played for the crowd...
...and a number of dance troupes danced.
My favorite act: a Sikh band and dance troupe.
And of course, to cap it off, Fireworks!
