Vasan In A Saree

My Instagram and Twitter follower Vasanthi told me she is going to greet the chariot in its return trip in Ipoh tonight.

She told me tying the saree and make up will take an hour and half. I told her to send me an iphone selfie when she is done. She did and she looks gorgeous, doesn't she? St[ll needed to put on bangles on her hands and flowers in her hair, according to her. This is part of my ongoing Thaipusam story telling.

Selfie Epicenter - FGS Dong Zen Jenjarom

Selfie Epicenter - FGS Dong Zen Jenjarom

The selfie and posing epicenter at Dong Zen was concentrated at the area where giant roosters stood. I like how the temple made a cascading water fountain out of three large ceramic dining bowls with cockerel emblems.

The rooster bowls were significant in ancient Chinese society when agriculture played an important role. The cockerel motifs paid tribute to the rooster as a symbol of hard work, abundance, wealth, fertility and prosperity. Another cultural observation is the prominence of the colour red in wardrobe for CNY. Red symbolizes good fortune and joy.

Selfie Paradise - FGS Dong Zen Jenjarom

The Buddhist shrine comes alive every Chinese New Year when thousands of visitors pay homage. They are attracted by the annual theme park like atmosphere created by the special CNY decor.

Every corner you will see a visitor attempting a selfie or groupfie. It will be even more interesting at night when the lights are switched on. I don't want to stay until nightfall as it may be too many hours and too exhausting for my angelic volunteer and helper Tevanraj Elengoe.
