I was at the camera shop in Penang Road yesterday evening. Yay! Got the Nikon f2.8 105mm micro lens finally. RM2.7K. We also got the Digi Cabi 30L as well. So, hubby had gone to take the car but after waiting for several minutes, he didn’t appear. Got a call from him that he was stucked because of some procession.
He asked me to ‘Faster go and take the photos’. Doh, as if I will let a chance like that pass by. However, I wasn’t sure whether to use my 18-200mm lens or just leave the micro lens on. *roll eyes* I changed it to the 18-200mm because the procession was across the busy Penang Road and I am not risking my life to stand near those spears and whips.
(oi, oi, got see lucky number on top or not? 3228)
Yes, you read right. Spears and swords and whips. *spiak!* This is a Chinese gods processions and normally, the mediums will go into trance as the god of war, monkey god, baby god (nacha), beggar god and god of hades.
There were several of these guys with at least 10-feet long spears pierced through their cheeks. It goes in from only one side, not right across. But it is really heavy. My atm finally got to where I was and went near to take the pics of these spears. Eeek…I geli, I dare not even see the close-up of the spear.
There are lion dances and they even distributed free char siew paus for all the hungry ghosts like me who stood by the road side. LOL.
More of the nachas (the baby god?) with spears. Looks like it must be the birthday of nachas? I am not sure but I do know that I got stucked a while waiting for the procession. Photo opportunities so I won’t complain.
