No Deepavali Bazaar in Brickfields for 2013

If you are looking forward to visit Brickfield for its month long Deepavali (Diwali) Bazaar, you could be disappointed this year.

KL Municipal has relocated 400 stalls to Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman, near Masjid India.

I visited the back lane this morning around 10am, only few stalls were opened.

Today is also Hari Raya Haji, so we walked to Masjid Jamek but the mosque was closed. So I couldn’t show you the praying ritual this morning. In some designated mosques, Muslims conduct the sacrifice of cattle (lambs or cows) before noon.

We headed to Lorong Chan Ah Tong in Brickfields as there are few Deepavali stalls opened at the opened field. Only less than 10 stalls were opened at 11am. I guess the merchants open stores later in the afternoon or at night. It was very quiet and no Deepavali atmosphere in Little India.

There is another ‘tiny’ Deepavali Bazaar in Sunway Pyramid with 3 to 4 stalls. You can finish the tour in 2 minutes.

Perhaps I should explore the Little India in Klang when it gets closer to the actual Deepavali day (on 2 Nov 2013).

A happy Hari Raya Haji to Muslim friends and early Deepavali greeting to Hindu friends, and late Thanksgiving greeting to North American friends, and farewell to Nine Emperor Gods devotees ….
