Photographer's Note

Today is the Hindu festival of Thaipusam. The celebration in Singapore is quite famous, though not as spectacular as at the Batu Caves in Malaysia (so I'm told by kevinos)
This was my firt experience of this festival and I had been looking forward to it...you can look up the meaning yourself...the piercing and skewering of the skin is quite spectacular but not as gory as you would think...tends to not bother you after awhile.
