Happy Deepavali

It's the first time I'm living in a place outside of Kuching (at least as long as I can remember) when Deepavali is being celebrated. Heck, I didn't know it was being done so exuberantly.

They even have fireworks!! Now all the festivals seem to have the reoccurring theme of noisy firecrackers, makan makan makan and visiting each other. This really shows the diverse cultures in Malaysia really mixing, intertwining and closely connecting to each other.

Unfortunately Interestingly enough, Selangor has a high population of Hindus and Indians, therefore my ears are being constantly bombarded by the cheerful sounds of celebrations at this present moment, thus I cannot get anything into my head at all, therefore I must thank the cheer-givers for the distraction so I have an excuse not to study for one night.

=) Cheers, Happy Dancing in the Deep Valley! [Deep-A-Valley... XD]
