If hearing motivational speeches which get you prepped for the year ahead is your kinda thing, then welcome the New Year with leaders Khalid Ibrahim and Teresa Kok. The event begins at 5pm with Orang Asli and multicultural drum performances, and later in the night, Selangor Menteri Besar will be delivering a speech to usher in the new year. The night comes to a close when the fireworks go off at the stroke of midnight and everyone has a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

(6) Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya
For those of you who are adventurous enough, take a climb up Gasing Hill, one of the last surviving green lungs in the Klang Valley. There is a dirt path which many residents take for their morning walks, though there is overgrowth, so it is best to don a comfortable pair of sneakers than just flip-flops. At the end of the path, there is a little hut built on stilts where you can climb and take in the view of Old Klang Road and parts of the KL skyline, including the Petronas Twin Towers. An alternative would be to drive up Gasing Hill on one of the roads which will lead you to a telecommunications tower, and there are benches for you to sit on. The view may be blocked by a few trees, though.
(7) Jalan Bukit Pantai, Bangsar
This frequently travelled road is usually overlooked since cars just roll past without noticing, but there is a little spot along it which hosts the prettiest framed sight of the KL skyline and on New Year's Eve, you can park your car on the side of the road (make sure it doesn't obstruct traffic though), and walk down the road from Pantai Towers to enjoy the fireworks. The houses and condominiums in Bukit Pantai will also have access to the view, thanks to the high point of their construction.

(9) Bukit Permai, Cheras
(10) Taman Tasik Titiwangsa
