Inai drawings

Well, Thaipusam was on the 27 Jan 13. Ipoh was a busy town. My girl came back earlier before the event and wanted me to take her to the temple to observe the Thaipusam procession for her project work. It was a Sunday and I wanted to do some housekeeping so my other girl took her there

She came back and showed me her hands being drawn with inai. She has posted about it on her blog. Maybe you would like to see her pictures of Thaipusam celebration @ Simple Life.

  1. Very intricate patterns drawn. When did she wash the Inai drawings off?

  2. I read the post on her Simple Life blog sometime ago. Your daughter writes very well. I felt like I was there with her observing the Thaipusam celebration while reading her detailed description of the event.

  7. I always love to see the hands being painted with Inai. The art is fascinating and nice. The hands will look complete and well decorated for big occasions.
