Coming Soon: Thaipussam Penang 2008

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 5:59 PM | , | 2 comments »

Hey people...Sorry for MIA these few days...I was very busy with Thaipusam shooting @.@ Seriously I can actually desclare myself for completing an almost complete Thaipusam pilgrimage. For more than 20 years staying in Penang, I was never involved in any Thaipusam celebration. This week, I watch with my very own eyes how they transfer the god idol from charriot to the temple, the process of putting on the piercing and how they remove em(ops not in my camera), how they bathe the god idol with milk, how tired it is to run up the hill =.= yes run, throwing tons of coconut till my hands almost fell off and of course hunting for the best muruku.

Long story short, I will compile up some videos and put it here soon. Of course an event like Thaipusam can be a gastronomic adventure. So much to see....Stay tune : )

Happy waiting : )
