Thaipusam, Batu Caves, Malaysia, Year 2012

I have spent the half of yesterday, thinking should I go to Batu Caves or should I not, just for the sake of taking photographs of devote hindu disciples pay their respect to their god.. SO finally.. i decided to go, with a good friend of mine.

Woke up at 530am, met up with friend at 6am, had breakfast at McDonalds and made our way to Batu Caves.. Reached there around 650am, there was a big jam there.. ALREADY.. THIS EARLY.. manage to secure a place to park my car on the fly over bridge about 5 minutes walk away from the temple.

So here is some of the photographs i shot..

And finally.. THIS.. had a free “cold sample” before i called it a day and left..



Now.. want to share a photo with all of you.. sometimes, i feel ashamed to be called a photographers, because of these in-humane, in-polite and no respect for religion photographers.. the poor dude was carrying such heavy thing.. and needs to sit for a rest.. the moment he sits down.. FUIYOH.. all this idiots rush to him to shoot.. poor guy.. it must have been painful.. This is why photographers is banned in so many places.. because of these guys..

And then on my way out, i see 3 police tow trucks happily towing cars away.. odd, because you do not see them towing away cars at certain places of worship and during certain time and certain day.. and FRU unit on standby..
