I missed Holi by a day in India, came back 1 day before Holi festival, so you may be wondering what on earth is this Holi thing…well I was too when I first heard it. Holi is actually known as the Festival of Colors, think of it as the colorful version Songkran (Water festival in Thailand). Holi is somewhat similar to it just that they start with some colored powder throwing and then later proceed to water fights. Read more bout it here.
Holi falls on a Monday 1st March 2010, and because it’s not a public holiday here in Kuala Lumpur, the local community usually celebrates it the coming weekend which was on the 7th in this case. Holi in India is massive…streets and people would be covered in colors but in KL things are slightly smaller scale. Lots of music and dancing and of course..water splashing. Here are some of my Favorite takes from the event.
