Thaipusam 2007

[Updated]: I did went to Batu Caves. Took some pictures which I uploaded to my personal flickr account. Here's a collage of the photos:


I told myself I'm not going to follow anymore chariot procession ever since the terrible experience I had during the procession last year. But somehow the temptation was just too great and I decided to walk 15km with the chariot last minute :P Started my walk at 12.45am (yea.. that was before the chariot moved from the temple) and reached Batu Caves at exactly 5.45am. I still had similar problems like last years - bikes, conversations which are made up entirely by vulgar words (yuckss!!), phone number seeking etc. Glad to have my bro around though. Just like having a bodyguard watching over 2 gals (sister and I) hehehe..I'm still not sure if I'll be going off to Batu Caves again 2moro for Thaipusam celebration. Still thinking.

And oh yea.. below is a wallpaper made up of a photograph I took this morning at Batu Caves. Between this is Tulipspeaks' 200th post!! ;)

i tend to ignore the stupid qs - u get it everywhere not just during the walk - so i dont c it as a prob - the ramming is stupidla - they just wanna test the cops - i was standing next to a cop when this car decides to blast its radio with the windows down - kidsla
