One day, seeing that all the new big highways that led to the new King’s Palace were right outside our doorstep, we followed the yellow brick road and ended up here. If not for my crappy point and shoot, this would have been a magnificent view.
We never realised that the grounds of the King’s Palace, not only inside but OUTSIDE were SO BIGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!
We decided to visit another day when the sun was out because the Hubs said he saw HORSES there, so off we went. He is our neighbour after all. *waves – Hello King!*
There is a separate parking lot to the front entrance so that vehicles cannot access the front entrance. There are even toilets at the parking lot.
Just look how BIG the space is in front of the grand entrance??? An idea immediately came to my head. This would be a great place for the girls to CYCLE or skate or whatever…….
See? The kids there (who were all either tourists or school visits) were already running around in that big, BIG SPACE!!! Just imagine how much money the tiler made??? There’s a shit load of floor tiles there.
They had guards who stood super still and didn’t smile nor wink and just looked straight ahead, somewhat like the Buckingham Palace Guards. It was funny as we tried to make him laugh. I even threatened to tickle him but then I suddenly noticed his rifle-gun-knife-weapon-whatever……
That thing looked VERY DANGEROUS. Super polished stainless steel DAGGER right on top, can you see?? He only needed to lift it and I’d be dead. So I quickly took a shot of him so you could see his Uniform and ran the hell out of that little cubicle where he stood.
We got to witness the changing of the guards…..it was all very entertaining.
Then I looked beyond the entrance gates and saw just how BIGGGGGGGGGGG the grounds were!!! If you thought the entrance foyer you saw above was big, look at this!!!
But I was just thinking, the building is new and already there were lorries inside doing maintenance and repair works.
All I could think of was money, money, MONEYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!
Where is all the MONEYYYYY????? RIGHT HERE!!!!!
I went up to this group of friendly police officers to ask them in my Malay accent (I have a damn good one, OK? I’ve been caught for not ‘puasa-ing’ before…..) where the horses were!
They told me horses daily till 3pm only. I think they said the horses woke up at 11am. But there you go. If you want to see the new Agong’s Palace and want to witness the changing of guards AND see horses, make sure you go before 3pm. So that was our visit to the Agong’s Palace one Saturday afternoon……at 5pm.**************************************************************************
