Happy Thaipusam - January 30, 2010

Wishing all Hindu Toastmasters, "Happy Thaipusam".

Thaipuisam is a public holiday and major Hindu festival in Penang Island. Today, I visited the Penang Waterfalls Garden to witness this colorful 3 days event where fulfilment of vows of piercing or carrying a kavadi or offering of metal containers of milk with music in the air, dancing in the street, Indian families out in their best and gawking of Western tourists and photo enthusiasts. Like a Toastmasters meeting or Toastmasters speech contest or Toastmasters convention, you have to be there to experience it. The "TM" is not Toastmasters but Telekoms Malaysia. Enjoy the photo clips.
