Touched down on homeland few hours ago. It was early morning of the 9th day into Chinese New Year (total 15 days celebration).
So we went to Klang where many Hokkien Chinese folks celebrate the day to pray to the Heaven Gods (拜天公).
To some Hokkiens, the 9th day is more important than the first day of Chinese New Year.
(I use the Line Art filter built-in to my point-and-shoot camera for the picture above, just for fun).
I am very impressed with this year flora and light decoration at FGS Dong Zen.
All the decorations were created by volunteers and funded by donors.
The end result is more impressive than the Lantern Festival organized by government and iCity LED trees.
If you are in Klang Valley and nothing to do during this long holiday, then it is worth while to visit Dong Zen at Jenjarom, Banting.
I am sure that elders and kids will enjoy the flora and lights.
The Ramadhan (Ramadan) fasting month falls in summer time.
Bazaar has becoming a good marketplace for Muslims and non-Muslims to scout for food in the evening.
We visited one of the bazaar nearby and look for the usual food choices.
Today is the 37th year that the largest Bon Odori Festival is held outside of Japan.
Bon Odori is celebrated at Shah Alam (Selangor), Penang, and Johor Bahru (Johor).
There will be fireworks display tonight to mark the 50th years establishment of the Japan Club Kuala Lumpur (JCKL).
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.
We drove to Ulu Yam Lama to eat the Lor Mee this afternoon.
Today was my first time testing a water proof point-and-shoot camera. I also brought it to Sungai Sendat Waterfall and Sungai Tua for a ‘bath’.
It was a fun half-day trip to the Ulu Yam and spent about an hour with the photowalk.
The venue of Animax 2013 has been shifted from 1 Utama (2012) to Sunway Pyramid this year.
It was frightening not seeing any cosplay participants by 10am.
We decided to do some windows shopping and return to the blue concourse. To our relief, the crowd arrived.
We did not enter the event held in the concourse area because the venue was simply to small to hold the crowd. I personally think that it was a wrong choice of venue to hold such event.
