Halloween in Malaysia

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in Celebrations

Ghosties, ghoulies, witches, zombies… and even a mummy! Looks like Halloween has finally landed in Malaysia. Yesterday, the students put up a great show dressing up for Halloween. I was too lazy and just decided to go as Super Mario. But look at the effort some people took… I want some blood with this… Oooh, fancy meeting the devil? Okay, I don’t wanna cross this little one here… TWO Narutos? Or am I seeing double? And we have Two-Face in the house… Okayyyy… somebody’s got out of the wrong side of the bed today. This little Hulk’s a real poser. Peek-a-boo? We’re scary… don’t come near us! If there was a prize, he’d get my vote for sure. I… want… your… bloooodddd… I don’t want to get on the wrong side of him either. Nice mask… That’s a lot of effort as well....

Diwali and Kolams

Posted by on Oct 20, 2017 in Celebrations

And Diwali’s over – that was fast. 2017 is almost over… it’s already the fourth quarter. Barring a few fireworks, it passed very quietly this year. I heard of a few performances in some of the major shopping malls, and there were kolams all over the place. But other than that… The kolam is drawn with chalk or rice to bring prosperity to homes. Hmm, maybe if I had a kolam in the house next Diwali, I’d be able to get...

Photos Galore!

Posted by on Sep 11, 2017 in Events

Saturday marked the 11th Canon Photomarathon in Malaysia. The number of participants had increased this year, it seemed. It didn’t look that way to me… Registration was at 7am at usual. By 8am, most of the counters were already freed up. The event started with the normal instructions at 8.45am. This year, there was also a special 30th anniversary theme – “Moments that Matter”. The first theme was “Grin”. It was super difficult to catch people grinning candidly so early in the morning. I finally managed to get this lady on the monorail… The second theme was “Rain”. I could see that most of the contestants were stumped at first. The skies were a little grey, yes, but there was not a single drop of rain. A lot of photographers decided to get creative. My entry for the second theme was a lucky shot… And finally, the third theme was announced – “Silhouette”. The sun was nowhere to be seen. I decided to just submit something close by… And yes, there’s the finisher medal! Not bad – it’s quite heavy. Winning photos are not up yet, but should be available here...
