Recently, (like, a few hours ago), I participated in the flashmob for “Tali Tenang”. It’s an event organized by RandomActs in the spirit of national unity. Basically, Malaysians were invited to bring along strings, tie them together, and walk in the spirit of 1 Malaysia unity & peace among Malaysians.
It’s a lot less corny than it sounds, and it was pretty fun. It’s like the opposite of bombing places of worship! All in all, it was really nice to see everyone come together to do something positive. You’ll get a good idea of it by checking out the #talitenang hashtag on Twitter.
Here are some pics…
That’s me. Love my Korean 3GS case It’s got a little ring attached (so I can hold it easier while shooting videos/prop up on table) and a mirror! Photo by roflina, thanks!
The setup (tying strings)…
Epic picture walking back after the event. Shot by Jeremy.
Here’s a video from Tali Tenang that I shot from my iPhone 3GS (vid quality isn’t too good, just uploaded, it should be better later as Youtube finishes processing it)

And here’s one of the arrival at the the final destination, Bangsar Sports Complex. There were about 200+ people who took part in total!
Cincauhangus also has a great video of the Mexican Wave at the end. Can you spot me? I’m at the second row from the back, on the right side (your right).
