Yesterday wake up super early in the morning due to the preparation for this Thaipusam shooting at Batu Caves. Too bad I was really lack of sleep for the shooting progress and I took less photograp yesterday. It was lucky and grateful that Eugene fetch us to Batucaves.
The whole journey got 5 people which was included me, Eugene, Eri, Myin and Ahkwong. This was my third time came to Batucaves and you guys can refer back my previous Batucaves post. Thankz for the tips from Rames to this Thaipusam, while we reaching there we need to paid RM10 for whatever parking and this is a must oresle they will doing anything to your car. It just park in and they just behind waiting us by riding a motor. By the way, thier was react so fast. At the same time, if went by more people please stick close together orelse you guys we get yourself lost there.
The atmosphere was so great here!!! It was so crowd in the morning. You can hear even hear the sound of celebration and drums from far.
I have been seing this in the television documentary about the nails and sharpen tools torture to the body. This was the first time to saw this in real life and it give me a really pain feeling.
Thier celebration was so colourful as thier clothing and culture. Is a very nice place to train my photo skills.
The color of skin
Do you hear the pain?
The drums and perfomance.
They carrying this huge thing and going all the way to the top of Batucaves at the same time all the sharpen things stack on to his skin by balance it.
The holy flame
The happy couple – Eugene and Eri
Ahkwong and Myin
We are going up…all the way was so crowd and cautions for those who cannot stand for the smell. It really make me faint there.
My post end up here. This picture give me a lot of strength… actually we live like this in our life. All the sharpen things torture to the skin and tiring but yet they have to climbing up there… ppl they calling ” rain rain” ( i dunno what is the meaning)
By the way, Happy Thaipusam!!!
