If you are a photographer, you need to be here! If you love color, you need to be here! If, like me, you love high energy and friendly crowds and just plain fun, you need to be here! Don’t just take my word for it. Check out Sean Liew’s blog for great photos and entertaining comments on yesterday at Kow Ong Yah Ampang. I handed out a lot of cards yesterday to a lot of photographers and asked them to post their photos and send me a link. Let’s share the joy of this festival.
I hope that you enjoy these selected images from last night when the festivities got underway with the grand procession to invite the Emperor to the temple.The excitement started building at about 5:30pm with the arrival of the dragons and lions.
Then the temple gods went for a ride in their beautiful sedan chairs accompanied by cheers and shouts to encourage Prosperity and Good Health.
