The Born of Rainbow Wonders in Deepavali

Satu Malaysia Kolam Decoration, at KL KTM


Many people might know Deepavali is a celebration of the Hindus, one of the tribes of Indian, but many people do not know how Deepavali comes from. Have you heard of how Lord Krishna killed Narakasura? The story leads to why oil lamp was lighted in the house, to know more, see this link:-

What we can see during Deepavali:-

1. Blessing- Yellow or purple angpow packet with some dollar notes inside to be given to the children or the unmarried people.

2. Clothes - the Hindus will be wearing their traditional Indian costumes, most of them will be wearing new clothes like pretty Saree with amazing silk work; men might be putting on just the casual clothes.


Very well done Saree


3. Family gatherings- Laughter of the kids, the reunion and gathering of the families.

peaceful, joy, happiness

4. Food - Smell of curry and hot spices will be coming out from the houses.

yummy, and hungry for it?

5. Marriage - If marriage occurred in conjunction with Deepavali, the bridegrooms will accept the wedding gifts from the in law families.

6. Oil bath – also known as "ganga-snanam”, as in to believe to wash off all the pasts.

7. Oil lamp - During deepavali, we will start seeing most of the houses are lighted up with oil lamps, to show that light in the dark.

8. Rangoli or Kolam - so creative and colorful; some of them were even decorated along with the Diya Lights (Hindu Candles).

You know why I will fall in love with Annalakshmi? Very simple: - we pay on our own will with any amount of money, we give out the money generously, no stress on who is going to pay the bill and the food is really good.

You might have doubts, pay at any amount after eating so much, or maybe the decoration of the restaurant is so nice till you cannot believe this is what people said?

Believe it or not, it is true, and the service is very good, but of course please wear tidy clothes and not too casual. You will sure love the place!
