I am going to break into the normal chronology of events during our KL Blogger Challenge as I want to focus on individual detailed posts first before making a summary later linking all the blog entries.Yes, I am back in Manila and it is starting to sink.There's a lot that I would like to tell you and I am so excited I donno where to start.
But let me feature the NATIONAL STADIUM at Bukit Jalil first, since I have already mentioned in the entry before this about how crazy Malaysia is in football, since it's EURO2012 season and I keep hearing cheers from crowds in pubs from my hotel at the 15th floor along Bukit Bintang when I was there.
Malaysia is a football crazy country indeed.I slept in my friends apartment at Bukit Jalil Saturday night and it's just across the street from the National Stadium so I got to marvel at its size from the window.My friend said it's really noisy whenever there is a football match there.
The National Stadium,locally know as Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil is located in the southern district of Kuala Lumpur.It was created during the 1998 Commonwealth Games and is now considered a multi-purpose stadium.Big concerts are also held her.Big coz it has the capacity of 87,400+.How I wish we could have a stadium this big.I am green with envy :)
How to get to NATIONAL STADIUM, Bukit Jalil
I was from TBS last time, the Central Bus terminal of Kuala Lumpur and I took the train/LRT (yellow line) Bandar Tasik Selatan.See Map here: It's only 2 stations away.Yo notice that BUKIT JALIL Station is relly large.That,is , because it serves as the commuter point to the National Stadium.

NATIONAL STADIUM, Bukit Jalil is part of the National Sports complex which includes a former athletes village now converted into apartments for locals, a park and other facilities for the sports development of Malaysia.This is just one of the six stadiums in Malaysia but it is of course the largest.Must be crazy watching a live event here.
