Encorp Strand ~ Le Tapis Rouge (The Red Carpet)

The building that made me kept glancing back each time I passed by and wonder makes me wonder no more! On 15 September 2011, everyone was invited to attend their Carnivale - A Night of Celebration of Being Malaysian. It was also the night of The Red Carpet Avenue Grand Launch!

Le Tapis Rouge which means The Red Carpet in French is a versatile concept built around the experience of celebration.

Curiosity got the better of me that night. After dropping of my boy for his class, I went to nose around. The main entrance was cordoned off for VIPs. Noted though that there wasn't any signage to direct us "public visitors" where to enter. Not giving up easily since the banner said "All Are Welcome", I went to the side entrance and walked right in!! Actually it's the middle part (main stage area) that were only closed off for the VIPs and media. The other two sides of The Red Carpet Avenue is opened for all walks of life.

Yes yes this small kiddo followed me to check out the launch and got himself a balloon and flag :)

Aptly phrase, it was indeed an enchanted moment seeing the beautiful structure being illuminated by the lights that throws shadows around.

While walking in thru the side entrance, I spotted these dancers who were warming up for the opening. Alas time was not on my side and I couldn't stay for the Grand Launch although I very much wanted too. Parental duties call first and I need to pick up my boy from class and also run some errands. Thus I left the place BUT not before I went and asked what's the lined up for the night hehehehe.....

pppssstttt..... after the launch which according to the signage will be graced by our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, there will be some performances that will last till 1AM. So I'll be back!!

Hhhmm all along the walkway, I spotted these CUBE. Do you wanna know what it is?

So as I said, I'll be back and back there I was and spotted some local artiste - Reshmonu, Bunkface, Azizat and you may want to help me to name them out LOL!

The launch, the night where we celebrate being Malaysian is also the night where we celebrate Malaysia Day. At the stroke of 12AM, fireworks went bam bam BOOM!! and everyone say :
