Deepavali (Dewali)

Today is Deepavali which is the Hindu 'Festival of lights'. It's also a public holiday due to the large Indian (Tamil) population of Singapore (around 400-000 - 10%).

We are off to ION for lunch, then on to Little India to see what's going on for Festival

I realised today that recently I'm using social networks exactly as a photo blog.  Perhaps to keep people informed of what I see around me, perhaps because I'm missing home, but definitely because I like to keep in touch and share the photos which I enjoy to take.

It's 4 months in Singapore now nearly, 1/3 of a year of my life away from home.  Certainly it's about time I recorded the experience.  This things don't happen to everyone all the time.
