New name and new venue for Putrajaya floral festival 2015.
New admission fees of RM5 for Malaysian, and higher rate for foreigner. In return, visitors will be rewarded with 500,000 flora (100 species) and opportunity to exercise leg muscle.
The weather is so hot that both the visitors and the flora are dehydrated.
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.
Are you ready for some colours?
Over thousand of visitors queuing up under the hot sun to join Holi Festival 2014.
If you have not watch the movie Avatar, you can find similar creatures in this festival.
The traffic around Bukit Layang-Layang during the World Kite Festival (18-23 February 2014) was jam packed.
The locals swamped to the festival not merely for the flying kites, but the carnival like stalls on the hillside.
There were over hundred stalls but not many surprises as they were selling standard night market goods.
Pasir Gudang held the 19th World Kite Festival on 18th to 23rd February 2014.
We visit Bukit Layang-Layang to see the interesting kites roaming the blue sky.
It was a good experience to see interesting shape and size, 2D and 3D kites.
Many foreign visitors (especially kids) are fascinated with the lion dance and dragon dance.
Partly could be the adrenaline pumping drum (traditional lion dance music).
It was the variety of forms and colours that I personally find the lion/dragon dances interesting.
How ‘hot’ is Chingay in Johor Bahru?
Two of the hot spots are the VIP grandstand along Jalan Wong Ah Fook (opposite of Central and the temporary shrine.
The participants, devotees and tourists (like us) walked 10KM round circuit from the temporary shrine to towards city center.
These flags were carried by young girls, and this has been a century old tradition.
