Crumbs that must hurt…

So we’ve just found out that the Hindu Thaipusam festival is happening on Sunday just outside Kuala Lumpur (thank YOU Lonely Planet spam emails), and have got a smidge spontan and booked train tickets up there for the weekend.

There are up to 1 million devotees each year in the processions, and check this out, it is b.a.n.a.n.a.s.

  1. Oh good grief the piercings…no. I can barely tweeze my eyebrows without feeling faint. That said…I hope that you have such an amazing time – the vibrant colors are so beautiful. You’re going to find so much inspiration there!! 🙂

    Ohmygosh…I think I’ve seen this on the travel show and I was pretty shocked! It is also a worldwide festival? I hope you get to take some good pictures, I always wondered how they suffer the pain 😮
