Stadion Bukit Jalil

Stadion Bukit JalilIndonesian football team is preparing for Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup 2010 final match Sunday against neighbouring country Malaysia at Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Jalil Stadium. About 20% Indonesian spectators will fly to Kuala Lumpur, the capital city, to watch the match.

Bukit Jalil, which -- to my ears -- sounds like the name of a local fisherman in my village Gowah, was built in January 1994 and officially opened in 1998. The stadium once served as 2001 South East Asian Games.

Often referred by Indonesians as Stadion (or Stadiun) Bukit Jalil, the stadium is located in the National Sports complex to the south Kuala Lumpur. In 2007, the stadium was used for AFC Asian Cup.

This match could probably be a medium for the two countries to build brotherhood, peace and good partnership after ceaseless conflicts, including the claims of water border and traditional arts such as Reog from Ponorogo.

So, are you guys interested to see the stadium?
