Wesak Day 2014

Wesak Day 2014 | Vesak Day

Today is Wesak Day. I have asked Caroline to join me to witness the float procession. Since she have a travel blog I guessed this event is good for her to promote Malaysia. At the same time she can do some video filming and shooting while I can take some photographs.

We reached Central Market by 6:30pm and we have our dinner here while waiting for the Wesak Day procession to begin. After dinner, we walked around the market and when the time came, we moved toward the area where the procession will pass by. It is in front of  the bus stop beside POS Malaysia. She was a bit concern about the safety but I  convince her that it will be safe as there are some policemen around that area.

Spotted this super size Bro raiding motorcycle and I have him snapped on my Canon DSLR camera, he asked me if I am from the press and he said, “No… No! I hate being in the news!” and definitely his body language spoke louder than his words.
