So busy last night.
Some of you might think I went to the float procession last night in town, but no.
Instead of going to the float procession which most of my friends did, I went to the Stadium Restaurant to attend my niece's 1st birthday.
There wasn't much people in the restaurant last night. Invited guests were only relatives and close-friends.
I actually thought the birthday party would be the main event of the night at the stadium, but turns out, there was another REAL event going on.
There was a football match at the stadium last night. It was the last and final match of the Malaysia's Super League.
No wonder the whole stadium so was brightly lit-up.
Although spot lights were coming from the four corners of the stadium, it was so brightly lit up that every piece of action on and off the field can be seen crystal clear.
I'm so sorry that instead of blogging about my niece's birthday, I'll now blog about football because football is my passion~!
I hardly go to the stadium at night time, so this was a rare chance for me to see the all-lighted up stadium.
The field were not so bad, although it can't be compared to big big stadiums such as Camp Nou, Old Trafford or Wembley. It can accommodate up to 30,000 people though.
It was lucky for me as everyone in the Stadium Restaurant can just look through the windows to see all the actions on the field, without having to pay. That is the main advantage.
When I peered through the window, I could see people from the media there already, most probably from RTB and RTM, or else, the Brunei Press?
I can tell that the match last night was quite important as it served as the final game of the league.
Even the fire engines and ambulances were there last night, in case of emergency.
Not only that, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Brunei was there too, to witness his team play.
Before the match, Brunei DPMM FC lies at the 3rd position in the Super League. However, should DPMM FC won or lost the game last night, the team would still remain at 3rd position despite the points difference between the 2nd and 4th positioned teams.
The attendance last night totaled up to hundreds, or maybe even thousands, but not so much. There were a lot of empty seats.
Each normal ticket costs $5, and $8 for better seats.
When it reached 8.40pm, match officials could be seen walking out of the tunnel, followed by the starting line-ups of the two teams.

Before the match started, the visiting team shook hands with players of DPMM FC as well as the match officials of the night.
The referee then blew the whistle, and the match began.
Brunei DPMM FC started the kick-off. Players of Kedah FC were guarding very tightly.
Brunei DPMM FC did not control much of the game and has less possession of the ball.
Despite fielding imported players from overseas, Brunei DPMM FC lost the game.
They now currently lay in 3rd position, and has 44 points.
Although DPMM FC lost the game, I felt proud for the team for being able to stay at 3rd position of the league, which is not bad.
