We got up early to find us a parking place as close as possible to the Batu Caves. I was told that there would be a huge crowd on the loose, to celebrate ‘Thaipusam’. It’s a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community. It looked like an enormous ritual: “On the day of the festival, devotees will shave their heads and undertake a pilgrimage along a set route while engaging in various acts of devotion, notably carrying various types of kavadi (burdens). At its simplest this may entail carrying a pot of milk, but mortification of the flesh by piercing the skin, tongue or cheeks with vel skewers is also common. The simplest kavadi is a semicircular decorated canopy supported by a wooden rod that is carried on the shoulders, to the temple. In addition, some have a small spear through their tongue, or a spear through the cheeks… The Kavadi itself is a physical burden through which the devotees implore for help from the God Murugan. (Wiki) “. An impressive day…

Ladies Night prt1

Ladies Night prt1

This ‘Ladies Night’, started with a nice diner; arranged by Silvia; who is in prt2. She brought her own wine and glasses, which is not strange in a free-minded, Islamic country. After the very good food, we visited the nearby marketplace in the darkness of the evening.

A quiet day prt1

A quiet day prt1

Sometimes there appears a day that makes you want to calm down. We walked around for a while, but pretty soon we returned home and viewed the shots we had taken in Penang on the computer. We hadn’t done that for a long time and it was fun. And debating shots also brings new insights. In the evening we were invited to a fine diner by Francis and friends; great evening. 🙂

We went back to KL by bus, after our jungle trip. The next morning these two nice Japanese ladies joined us for a ‘market-place-day’. But first food and a temple. There are very quiet, religious temples, where you hardly dare to move and feel like an intruder; and there are temples where things are just a daily routine. This one was of the 2nd category.

To the North with Francis and Sam prt1

Next day was the start of a trip to the North. In the first shot, my three companions. Björn of course; his friend Francis in the black T-shirt; and in the green shirt Sam; a friend of Francis; but soon we were just four friends :). The first shot is just before we started our trip; and just after a good breakfast. Food became one of our main subjects; something a Dutch Potato Eater like me had to get used to in the beginning. I had less trouble with our second main subject; also shown in the first shot: no beer.. The third main subject was photography; so let me introduce the one and only: LeicaMan.

Our first stop was at this restaurant, where we had lunch with Mr. Yew Poh Chong, the Executive Director of YHL Trading (Kedah); a large rice-company. He was somehow related to Francis and he offered us an opportunity to photograph inside two of his rice-factories. Great!
