In solidarity with the balloon girl…

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 31 — Police have charged a woman who was detained earlier today for distributing Bersih 4 balloons at an upscale shopping mall here for allegedly attempting to stir some trouble, according to the suspect’s lawyer.

It is understood that Bilqis Hijjas, the daughter of prominent architect Hijjas Kasturi, has been charged under Section 504 of the Penal Code for “provoking a breach of peace” by distributing the balloons at the Pavilion shopping mall in Bukit Bintang during the DiverseCity International Art Festival which Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had attended.

I am sorry for the up close and personal shot violating the balloon, but I was on my zoom lens and I thought I did not have enough time to switch to a more appropriate one. But it turned out okay.

And Tweety!!!

You see those normal yellow balloons? Yea, somebody got arrested for that.

And this one is a bit aggressive in a confusing way. A smiling bear with a potty mouth in need of a big soap.

I could not make up what it said, but bodoh is stupid in Malay. And Jibby is, well, Najib, our affectionate nickname for the Prime Minister.

And as the balloon bear danced in the wind, it turned around and… haha

Anyway, yea, you have to have these…

I have no more balloon picture, but if you do read up on Malaysian social media, you will know how magical this moment was, just 10 minutes before midnight:
