From where I live in Ulu Klang I can see the fireworks displays at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa each night. But strangely there had been nothing for the past few nights at least. I was wondering why? Ran out of money? Not enough visitors there to appreciate it? Did something screw up major?
Today I learned from unconfirmed sources that the fireworks had been stopped during weekdays because there had been complaints from the management of the Institut Jantung Negara (National Heart Institute) situated nearby across Jalan Tun Razak.
Somebody sure didn't think this one through well enough when choosing locations, did they? And if I was a patient in the IJN recuperating from open heart surgery or something major like that and I heard loud explosions outside my room window every night while I am fighting for my life I too would want to scream...
