Holi Festival 2014 (Part 2)
We have fun for a colour Sunday afternoon at Shree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir (Kuala Lumpur).
The event is free but outside visitors have been limited to bring the event under control.
If you can stand the hot sun and colour face for next 7 days, this will be a fun event.
80% of the coloured flour can be washed away, but what happen to the 20%?
If you have fair skin like me, certain colours could be more stubborn and take a few days to fade away.
This guy is smarter than me. I have few business meetings tomorrow and there are still few big patches of red and green on my face.
If you are taking a flight tonight leaving Malaysia, you may have to explain to custom office that you did some paint job in Kuala Lumpur.
Do you notice the photographer on the top right. That is how they protect the SLR with shrink wrap and cover themselves.
The sun is very burning at 2pm.
The community brought in a big tank of water to cool the crowd. (the orange tanker is in the background in the image below).
Everyone open up and enjoy themselves.
Holi is a celebration of spring although Malaysia only have 3 seasons (haze, rain or blue sky).
Everyone exchange greeting “Happy Holi” with a splash of water or smear of powder.
I am grateful that the community open this festival to outsiders.
