Colorful Holi Festival in Malaysia 2013



23 March 2013- Holi Festival is a spring festival, also an ancient Hindu religious festival, which is also known as the festival of colours, where even non-Hindu enjoy this great festival together nowadays.

Holi Festival Malaysia is organized by SDS Youth (didn't mentioned the meaning of SDS in their Facebook), where they have Holi Festival in Shree Lakshmi Narayan Temple every year.

This is the temple address: 68 Jalan Kasipillay, off Jalan Ipoh, 51200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We reached the temple at 11am after our late brunch, parked at a nearby building outside the temple, as we know probably it is already full of people and cars will be stuck within the temple neighbourhood area.


Upon arrival to the temple, each of us would need to put on a wristband, indicate as check-in I guess, this is a free event, and therefore, it shouldn't be involving any cost. I believe it is for their headcount of total attendees of the event.

So, we bought some wonderful colour powder, blue, and purple.





The SDS committee and other food stalls serving awesome Indian food for you. On that day itself, we are blessed as we were offered some simple vegetarian Indian food in the temple.





Emcee kept on telling us, don't start the colour fight, don't start first. Haha, well, so we have to wait...

Wait till the official speech, VIP invitation, some dance, thank you speech, and....

Finally, when the emcee says 3,2,1, goooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And we started off coloured each other with dry colorful powder, with the big help of the big orange tank of water sprayed onto us.

Wonderful....I was almost forgotten that I was pregnant, because I wanted to chase after other to play around with the colorful powder, haha! Luckily, my husband stopped me.











And we wished everyone, smiling: "Happy Holi Festival!"

Well, I was a colorful Avatar on that day.





My husband was...erm...purple alien?






And we did enjoyed, we were there for like 1-2 hours, and finally leaving the temple. and was shocked when we saw the long queue under the hot sun outside. my oh my, better come earlier the next Holi Festival!





Oh ya, a reminder, as it is a temple, please do not wear any sexy clothes, a simple top, pants (but not too short), and probably you might wear some clothes that you will be expecting to throw away pretty soon, just in case the colour won't go off so easily.
