Wow, some of these pictures are exceedingly moving! Without some of those tell-tale backdrops, I would think that these pictures were shot in India.

Good job!

Part 2:

Well, this is exactly one of the many charms Malaysia. Where else in the world can you find such distinct cultures...and of course, delicious food?! Malaysia really rocks in those two departments. :)

Bee - you're up late! :-) Yeah, tell it to the tourism authority. This is the truth of Malaysia (multiple cultures, multiple cuisines) but I just don't think they get the message across very well.

Su-Lin

Beautiful and moving! Thank you for sharing that!

Kalyn

Most interesting and wonderful photos. Thanks for taking us there.

This is one elaborate post with some of the most striking photos I have ever seen about the Indian culture in Malaysia. As a Malaysian, I can't even say I have witnessed anything of this scale with such pomp apart from the Thaipusam at Batu Caves and its related procession.

Sometimes I think both you and Dave are more Malaysian than many of us *feels shameful*.

Congratulations for the good, no, excellent work.

Jennifer

Astounding. What a gorgeous "blog-umentary" on a ceremony that I would never have otherwise known about. Thank you, again...

Robyn

Su-lin, Kalyn, Jennifer - thanks! We were thankful to have been welcomed as witnesses and 'blog-umentarians'!
Bayi - Thanks for the compliment. Isn't it the truth that the things we see everyday we often take for granted. We're not Malaysian so what's everyday and ordinary to you is often fascinating to us. Probably would be the same thing if you lived in the States ... you'd notice interesting/beautiful things that we haven't looked twice at in decades.
