    anyone knows if there would be anything in the morning on 22nd? cos not available in the morning. i tried my best to understand the schedule, and think that there will be entrance of the kavadi carrier into SPTT in the morning, but dun seem to have any ceremonies or parade then, not sure if there will be anything to shoot in the morning.

    also interested in this one too. does anyone know if it is better to follow the procession from robinson road and follow them throughout towards SPTT temple, or is it better to lingle around the SPTT temple and wait for the procession into enter?

    sorry, it is my first time trying out taking outdoor festival procession in singapore, so no experience on how to go around it.

    From what I understand, and from traffic notice about parts of Selegie / Serangoon Road being closed, I believe it starts TONIGHT, Monday, at about 6 pm.

    In previous years, I went to the temple in the morning around 8 am, but find that the light gets better around 9 to 10 am - that's when the kavadis and skewers catch a lot of sun rays.

    I have shot Thaipusam many years and still don't get tired, each year I find that my pictures different from previous years. Many pixs at my website, including http://www.art-photograph-gallery.co...usam-2007.html
    http://www.art-photograph-gallery.co...er_images.html

    I will probably be there tonight to try out night Thaipusam shoots for the first time and also tomorrow morning for the usual shoots. If you see a guy with Fuji S5 Pro, spectacles and no chin, that would be me ;-)

    I once went to the Clemenceau temple, the end of the procession, but find that not much to shoot there and hard to go inside to shoot the action. Best to go to the Serangoon Road temple, where they do the preparations - pray, insert hooks and skewers, etc - before procession.

    Newbies might find it a bit scary. I was scared the first time I went in 1981. But very quickly get used to things. So don't worry. Just don't get in the way of the kavadi carriers.

    Along the roads while they are walking, to me no point. Best to go inside the temple grounds.

    Saw some signboards along ORCHARD ROAD nearer Selegie / Bras Basah side. It says to expect some traffic congestion from 21 January 6pm to 23 January 2am

    I don't have any special sources of information ;-)
