This year, 2011, I’m shooting at the same, Thean Hou Temple, here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. But it differ this time because I came at the actual 1st day of the new year. Stay few hours there, tried to shoot on different angle and approach this year. I think I did not do that well this year. But anyways, here is what i shot during the day.

This is very late entry for my Thaipusam’s documentation for the year 2011. This year I already planned to go out early and document the event before the sun rises, but unfortunately, I did not manage to get off bed as early as planned. So, there goes my plan. Hehe. Then I decided to shoot this year Thaipusam with a little bit of light play. So, here my few takes for this year Thaipusam, shoot in Batu Caves. Enjoy!

17th of July 2010, at Panasonic Sports Complex, Bon Odori that were celebrated annually here marked its 34th year. This year is my 1st  time experiencing & documenting Bon Odori since years I miss to attend the event. Reached the stadium at about 8.30pm and the place already packed with people. Bila ada dekat situ, rasa macam dah sampai Jepun pun ada, sebab ramai yang pakai pakaian tradisional Jepun, Yukata. In Malaysia, the events were celebrated in terms of dancing. People that came to the event gathered around the main stage to dance to a list of songs with different steps.

Here in Kuala Lumpur, the event were celebrate in Batu Caves. According to statistic, Batu Caves often attracts over one million devotees and ten thousands of tourist. As in 2008, Thaipusam was declared as a public holiday and i believe the number of devotees are increasing each year including this year. Awal2 pagi pun dah ramai.

This is my third visit to Batu Caves for Thaipusam. I did skip on 2008 and 2009 because of work. There is a new route for devotees this year sbb ade flyover baru. I guess this was their new experince before they climb hundres of steps to reach the caves.
