Thaipusam @ Batu Caves

::1st February 2007::
ent Batu Caves yesterday for the celebration of Thaipusam with Syahrulfikri & moqh, meet ypink there. Reached there about 8am, missed the holy river bathing session....
The night before Thaipusam i SMS syarulfikri that i'm not feeling well and i'm not going, but when i woke up the next day, i was feeling very well and i got nothing to do, since i gotto send my mother to my uncle's house in Wangsa Maju, so i called Syarulfikri in the morning and told him that i'm gonna meet him there.
that was my very 1st time to Batu Caves and join our Indian friends on Thaipusam celebration. very nice, next year will be there again. the 272 steps staircase seems like nothing to me, but after the event i can't feel my leg anymore. Aarh!!!i think i need to exercise more.
when you look at those pictures i took on that day with my lovely LCA, maybe you would think that the environment was fulled with smell of sweat, but it's not, you can smell very good smell of jasmine flower all the way, from the main entrance to the summit of the hill.
People are very friendly and kind, they were happy to see us joining the celebration of theirs, instead of thinking "Aiyoh, none of your business lah~ go back to sleep lah! is already crowded here..." no, they won't, they would like you to join the joy, dance with them, sing along with them, and smile with them.
This is a very nice event for photography shooting, their costume and accessories are colourful, their smiles are truly and the happiness is everywhere.
