Continuation from my previous blog; Malaysia – Next Big Celebration coming…. Hari Raya Puasa (1)
The feeling of Hari Raya Puasa is getting more intense. Shopping malls and hypermarket are greeting ready with decorations and also hampers as gifts to friends. And yes.. green in colour
Even hotel lobbies were decorated with the Hari Raya Puasa.
In one of the big shopping mall, they did a very special and detail decoration.
One of the passage way with beautiful decorated ‘beam’.

Hari Raya cookies being sold. Look delicious right?
More pictures of the Hari Raya Puasa. Stay tune….
This is 2nd part of my visit to the Snake Temple.
Worshipers jostling around to put their josticks ….
The offerings … and look at the size of the roasted pig. This was just one of the roasted pigs. If I am not mistaken, I think I saw another few more roasted pigs there.
Look at the various sizes of the josticks…
and also colourful ones too.
This portion of the temple is where the snakes are kept or sleeping. They also created hand made giant snake to mark this year of the snake.
More shots of the temple.
Yesterday I dropped by another famous spot in Penang; the Snake temple in Bayan Lepas. There were prayers and activities happening there, and lots of worshippers and tourists seen visiting the temple.
I managed to capture some interesting pictures. Hope you enjoy them.
The entrance of the temple. A matter of fact the temple is smack in middle of an industrial area or more like the area was developed around the temple.
A short write up about the temple but it is in Malay language.
Chinese New Year decorations can be seen around the temple.
Another shot of the entrance from another angle.
