Syiok Food Fest at National Stadium Bukit Jalil (Merdeka Day Weekend)

Syiok Food Fest (Myr5) lasts the whole Merdeka Day long weekend at National Stadium Bukit Jalil. However, the monsoon hit when I got there, then it got really hot when the rain ended and a whole bunch more people showed up and then everyone lined up to go into the tent (mostly fashion I think) – so I skipped that. The nachos for Myr20 were good as there was meat (under the cheese) etc in them. They appear to be a food truck business and available on Grab OR maybe they go around to various night markets/food courts/food fairs etc: The Bukit Jalil National Stadium (Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil) in Bukit Jalil, located in the National Sports Complex to the south of the city centre of Malaysia‘s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, all-seater multi-purpose stadium and the home ground of the Malaysian national football team. With a capacity of 87,411, it is the largest in Southeast Asia and the eighth largest football stadium in the world. It was officially inaugurated by the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, on 11 July 1998 ahead of the 1998 Commonwealth Games and staged the opening ceremony. Since then, it has also became the main venue for other international multi-sport events such as the 2001 Southeast Asian Games and the 2017 Southeast Asian Games, and nowadays host most Malaysian international football matches, national level football competition finals such as the Malaysia FA Cup, Malaysia Cup, athletic events and music concerts. The stadium, along with the National Sports Complex, is currently undergoing a major renovation at a combined cost of RM1.34 billion as a part of KL Sports City project in 2 phases. Project 1 (Phase 1) has been completed ahead and for the 2017 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur, with a new Populous-designed facade that covers the exterior of the stadium with twisted vertical louvres which are also LED-lighted, as well as recolouring the seats to a yellow-black design and upgraded facilities.
