Thaipusam 2008 photos
Just back home, and full of the Thaipusam 2008. What a festival is it! Looking at photos may give you an impression, but it's nothing compared to the real thing. Last year I had seen the second day, at daytime. Then I was stationed near the Waterfall temple.
This year Mr. Chandra and Mrs. Pearly took me in the very early morning right into the heart of Georgetown to see the deity Lord Murunga coming out of the temple and went on his journey to the Waterfall temple. Here are 22 pictures, I know, it's a rough selection and by no means complete. Please be patient, as it may load a little slow.

Since 2007 I have visited the Thaipusam in Penang, Sitiawan and Pangkor Island. The photos shown on this page are a good representation of the festival as it happens every year.
I know, you watch the photos and might feel your chills but once at the festival it's a completely different experience. Even I look at some photos with the chills running through my spines. Yet, it's all fun at the festival. Trust me, this is a lifetime experience!
