This week started with a holiday for the Deepavali or Diwali festival. Therefore I have colourful and beautiful festive photos of Diwali celebrations in Singapore and Malaysia.
I also want to share that I was featured on the Twinkl website as one of the featured bloggers. It was an honour for me as they admired my blogging journey in this multicultural city. Please check this post about the feature.
Coming back to today’s post, Diwali, the festival of lights, illuminates India with joy and vibrancy. Diwali is Celebrated by Hindus worldwide, and it is a festival in Singapore too. Diwali’s allure lies in its dazzling displays of diyas (oil lamps), colorful rangoli patterns, and vibrant firework spectacles that paint the night sky. Families come together, exchanging sweets and gifts, while homes sparkle with meticulous cleaning and vibrant decorations.
For this year’s Diwali holidays, we visited Malaysia Johor Bahru and captured some beautiful decorations. Therefore I have a glimpse of Diwali celebrations in Singapore and Malaysia.
Before the holiday, we were in Little India, and below are some of the moments captured during our visits. Little India was decorated for Diwali and the Indian Heritage Centre was the best place to witness this beautiful festival.
Little India – Singapore
Among the highlights of our visit was the Indian Heritage Centre, an oasis of cultural richness amid the Diwali celebrations.
Other than photo opportunities with props, there were activities in which kids could participate. Though we didn’t have much time for activities this year, last year we could participate in Diwali activities for kids.
Below card (the card with a pink flower) is a Diwali greeting. I found it among the decorations of my son’s Tamil Tuition. He said this card was done by him. So, I captured it. 🙂
Johor Bahru – Malaysia
Below are Diwali moments from City Square, Johor Bahru. The beautiful and colourful lanterns created a beautiful scene.
The radiant glow of these beautiful and colorful lanterns casts a magical aura, creating an ethereal scene that captivates visitors. As families and friends gather in the heart of the mall, the luminous ambiance fosters a sense of togetherness. The beauty of these lanterns transcends mere decoration, symbolizing the triumph of light and spreading the festive spirit throughout City Square Mall.
Everywhere, it was colourful!
Finally, below is a photo of our KFC meal that we enjoyed in Johor Bahru. This will qualify me to enter into T Tuesday blog event 🙂
