Happy Thaipusam---Hindus

Aha, today 20.1.11  is 
Thaipusam festival!
Happy Thaipusam to all Hindus! 

(Chinese: 大宝森节)

     Thaipusam (Tamilதைப்பூசம், Taippūcam) is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (January/February). It is celebrated not only in countries where the Tamil community constitutes a majority, but also in countries where Tamil communities are smaller, such as Singapore and Malaysia. The festival is also referred to as Thaipooyam or Thaippooyam (Malayalam: തൈപ്പൂയം, Taippūyaṁ). The word Thaipusam is derived from the month name Thai and Pusam, which refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. 

      The festival commemorates the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel (spear) so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman. There is a misconception among people that Thaipusam marks Murugan's birthday; however, it is believed that Vaikhasi Vishakam, which falls in the Vaikhasi month (May/June), is Murugan's birthday.

I just came back from Jaya Jusco as

Chinese New Year Festival with my family! 

Ouch, clothes prices are too expensive!

Argh, the situation look like PASAR (wet market) only^^

It's mainly because of the 
CNY festival and public holiday!
Hence, today no need to go to school...
