Since last year Finland has been 100 years an independent country. For this, we can thank our elders and all of those who fell bravely fighting for our liberty and making it possible. This is a proud accomplishment for such a small country.

And we, the Finnish students, celebrated it here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! Even though the party was far away from our homeland, we had amazing 60-70 Finnish people gathered together in a beautiful place in Mont Kiara. The event included chatting around, a beautiful collage video of Finland and its great success and beautiful nature, delicious dinner, some activities and of course alcohol; how else would Finnish people party, right?

The event was organized really well by MaSu (Malesian Suomalaiset) and we had lots of fun and cheers that night. The night continued (at least for us students here) later on and we went and celebrated the whole night waving the Finnish flags across the KL and got recognized by many local and foreign people. And they even congratulated us for the 100 years, which was unexpected and brilliant!  The following gallery will show some of the highlights during the evening:

The view was not too shabby! The Petronas Twin Towers to the left and the KL tower to the right are two of the city’s most popular attractions.
