    Korban 2006

    Just to add on, the mosque that I went to, Darusalam at Clementi, has it's slaughtering area at the perimeter of the mosque compound. Observers can simple stand by the railings and look at the sacrifice up close.

    To answer your question, yes you can go into the mosque. You have to be dressed conservatively though. As female, I made she I was wearing long pants, shirt and shoes. Was actually wearing a jacket but it got too hot after a while. :) It's polite to ask some personnel before taking the...

    Korban 2006

    Thanks for the thumbs up! It's good to expose ourselves and understand our Muslim counterparts practices. As a girl, some of my friends were surprise that I went and asked how I could stand the gore.

    Korban 2006

    I was there with my friend. We both wear black framed specs so not sure who you could have been looking at. Anyway, I was using a Sony F828. Were you there to watch, participate or take photos?

    Korban 2006

    Many gather to watch for the first time. Many were simply there to see their family and relatives perform korban. That's all from me for this year's Korban. More photos from the series can be found http://www.elutris.net/gallery/Festivals/2006%20Korban/index.html

    A little more... Young Malay boy twisting the sheep's neck off before it is skinned. The men get to work with the precision of a surgeon. A whole lamb can be stripped and chopped into its different parts in matter of minutes. Gasping for its last breath. Separated into...

    Chinatown - Changing Times (taken using Sony F828)

    Alas, the Sony F828's smallest aperture is f8.0. I agree, the stalls are a tad overexposed and hard to discern the starburst effect on the streest lamps as well. Peharps I should have used a 2seconds.
