EnHui were looking forward to the lion dance performance. They love to watch the performers at work, setting up the poles.
Lion dance at Curve.
En managed to catch two oranges and passed one to a little girl who stood nearby. Hui caught one orange too. The lion cheekily nibbled on her hand when she handed over a 'red packet'. :)))

I overheard, a staff told Hui to colour the whole picture, and Hui replied ' I'll colour it tomorrow" :))
Porcupines gnawing into the bamboo !
Hyena tore another piece of the goat.
Finally, the hyena pulled out the leaf that wrapped the meat.
This fake goat will stimulate the hunting senses of the hyena instead of the usual direct feeding. So, this is the reason why we were asked to make the goat.
Multi-animal show at 11am.
We took a train to Batu Caves. Direction - KTM from Rawang to Putra. Cross the pedestrian overhead bridge to the opposite platform and board the train which terminates at Batu Caves. When the 650am train arrived at Putra, all the carriages were full to the brim. We couldn't get in and I began to think that we won't be able to make it there. If I were to go to Batu Caves to see the celebration of Thaipusam next year, I would take a taxi there in the morning.
Suprisingly, the next train that arrived at 723am was pretty empty and the journey to Batu Caves was smooth and easy.
Crowd at ticket counter. It's advisable to buy a return ticket on your way up to Batu Caves.Otherwise, prepare loose change/notes to purchase from ticket machine which has a shorter queue.
Passengers waiting in line at Batu Caves station. The ride was okay if you don't mind travelling in the packed train and we were the only Chinese in our coach. :))) The devotees were polite, letting me board first, upon seeing me carrying Hui.
We passed by the market once we stepped out of the train station.
Areca nut is wrapped in betel leaves for chewing (also known as betel nut) . The lady let us try one of the ingredient in the bowl and it tasted sweet.
Kavadi with hooks pierced into the devotee's body and pulled a decorated cart.
The more pain, the greater the merits. It is also for fullfillment of vows for prayer answered.
Some devotees wearing Lord Murugan's favourtite colours - yellow and orange.
A devotee pierced his skin with val skewers.
Our posters - 3 for RM10. Yellow plastic bags contain praying items at RM3 per bag.
