Songkran 2013 @ Wat Chetawan
Happy Thai New Year to all the people who celebrate Songkran.
Since there is no official venue for Songkran celebration in Kuala Lumpur, the Thai Buddhist Chatawan Temple is hosting the Songkran at the temple compound for many revellers to celebrate the festival.
Be ready to get wet, with powder and water gun aiming at you. I have wet bucket unintentionally thrown at me. Luckily Songkran is about water and not throwing durian fruit.
Some people like to have more fun with icy water.
Even the guys carrying ice cubes were being ‘attacked’ by water cannon.
No one can escape from as ambush could be from any direction.
Even kids were attacking my point-and-shoot camera.
Beware of the little guys. All of them were armed and fully loaded.
They were trained from tender age, thus not afraid to get wet.
They have full determination to ‘get you’.
They knew where to reload for more destructive weapon.
Songkran is opened to everyone who like to join the fun affair.
Devotees coming to the temple will also perform the ritual of bathing Buddha statue.
It was fun to have a Chang Beer and being trenching wet on the hot Malaysian day. Hope next time we can plan to celebrate Songkran in Thailand, with the elephants.
