Today was the Open House organised by the Penang Chinese Clan Council at the heritage enclave around Armenian Street. It is the Year of the Ox.

I can recognise this chap. He pulls the Thaipusam Chariot. We will see him in action next week during Thaipusam, 7 & 8 February 2009.

Oh, if only he could talk, a penny for his thoughts ... No, make that RM100! Smile

Phoebe are you referring to the second pic? If you are, I am sure he is thinking of the hard work ahead of him on 7 February when he will have to pull that heavy Silver Chariot all the way from Queen Street to the Waterfall Temple, a journey that takes 12 hours. That will be another busy day for me too!

Yes, Kayes, I was referring to the poor living, breathing ox. Just look at that sad eye. Doesn't it tell a lifetime of stories?
