    Yap, it is on the 11th of Feb this year. Not sure if this date is fixed, thought that it should follow the Hindu calendar like Deepavali. Hopefully some Hindu friends here can share with us the information and correct us. Thank you and Cheerz.

    Anyway, found this website that shows Thaipusam is on the 11th Feb.

    A quick check with my Indian friends.

    The procession walking will start around 11 Feb (2am) and those big colourful kavadis will start rolling out at about 10am.

    Hope this help, cause me have a few Indian friends taking part in this year Thaipusam.

    Thaipusam
    Event Dates : 11th Feb 2006 to 11th Feb 2006
    (Preparation of Kavadis starts approx. 7pm on the eve at Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple.)
    Time of Event : 12am to 10pm
    Venue: : Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple & Sri Thendayuthapani Temple

    Description
    Thaipusam is the most dramatic of all Hindu festivals. Celebrated during the full moon in the Hindu month of Thai, it is a day of fasting, penance and consecration.

    The festival is an intense show of faith. The devotees go on a three-kilometre trek with ritualistic act of worship and penance. The main participants in trance, haul or carry beautifully decorated kavadis (containing milk pots). These are literally hooked to their bare bodies. It is a display of belief that transcends pain.
