Thaipusam Festival
Georgetown Penang
The Kavadi Attam ("Burden Dance", also written as cavadee) is the ceremonial sacrifice and offering performed by devotees during the worship of Murugan, the Hindu God of War. It is often performed during the festival of Thaipusam and emphasizes debt bondage. Devotees prepare for the celebration by cleansing themselves through prayer and fasting approximately 48 days before Thaipusam. 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. - Wikipedia

Chinese Opera Behind the Scene
Last night I had the opportunity to go back stage of the Chinese Opera to shoot some of the performers. I was so excited as I have always wanted to shoot this scene. The one day Penang Chinese New Year celebration event was organized by the State Government which is held every year. The event was to relive the moments of old Georgetown, promoting the culture and heritage to the locals and tourists.
