BangkokMap: Phuket Thailand Vegetarian Festival 2014 - Business Office 1

So we're inwards the oculus of the 2014 Phuket Thailand Vegetarian Festival, I stimulate got been sticking to "the diet" since September 23rd together with stimulate got managed to observe the fourth dimension together with attempt to catch a few shrines for festival events. Maybe my enthusiasm for the festival is non what it was, together with (without going into to many details) it's been a difficult yoke of months. I stimulate got spent five weeks inwards England inwards two sort out visits, the 2nd fourth dimension arriving solely a yoke of days before Mum passed away. And my Dad at nowadays has dementia, addition he barbarous over together with broke his hip a yoke of days later on Mum died. Not the easiest time. Got dorsum hither to Phuket Thailand simply 10 days before the festival started together with at i time dorsum to work, so I stimulate got been a picayune tired. One of my principal motivations over the final few years has been photography, trying to larn meliorate photos of the vegetarian festival, but before this yr I sold my photographic boob tube camera together with stimulate got been solely using an iPhone for quite a few months now! Well I picked upwardly my Dad's former Panasonic Lumix G1 from England, it's a fleck of an former camera, but I stimulate got been trying it out this week.

September 23rd the festival began inwards the even out amongst the raising of the Go Teng pole at the shrines or so the island, the pole is where the gods are said to descend into the shrines. I was working so missed the ceremony this year, but you lot tin lav encounter photos from 2011 Phuket Thailand-vegetarian-festival-2011-part-1">here. I did become to Kathu shrine (my local) inwards the even out to snap a few photos together with so into Phuket Thailand Town to larn some food.

Normally I due east whatever I experience like, including lots of amount together with I potable enough of beer. So sticking to the alcohol-free vegan diet for nine days is quite a challenge. The telephone commutation is to consume a adept diverseness of food, non simply nine days of boundary rolls, together with observe a few restaurants where you lot know you lot tin lav larn something good. And potable enough of juice or H2O ice tea instead of beer :) I wrote a page almost the Phuket Thailand-vegetarian-festival-2011-part-1">Food at the Vegetarian Festival final year.

On September 25th, I was at Naka shrine inwards the morning. Got at that spot a fleck piece of cake really, 6:45am. I intend 6am is a meliorate fourth dimension if you lot desire to encounter what goes on at the shrine inwards the morn of a street procession. I'd non been to Naka shrine before together with idea it mightiness last quite modest together with quiet. Wrong! It was packed together with my get-go sentiment within the shrine showed that it mightiness last difficult to larn a photo, amongst a business of backpack-wearing "pro" photographers taking upwardly much of the space. I observe some of these photographers rather pushy together with slightly disrespectful - all that matters is the photo. They shove cameras to within inches of pierced faces together with stimulate got no qualms almost getting inwards the vogue of obvious amateurs similar myself!

I was at that spot for almost an sixty minutes together with did cope to larn some decent photos amongst the Lumix camera. As faces larn pierced all or so the grounds of the shrine, it's difficult to know where to look, together with you lot can't encounter it all at the same time. Here's a few pics from the 25th ...

On September 26th later on a 24-hour interval at work, I headed into Kathu hamlet inwards the even out for an even out procession of the nascence together with expiry gods, or are they the gods of the living together with the dead? Something similar that. Statues of the gods are carried through the streets past times teams of immature guys together with most of the Ma Song from Kathu also bring together the parade (no piercings on this day). It takes house simply later on dark, starting almost 6:45 - 7pm. In the shrine before the procession, the immature lads sit down together with hold back for their walk through the firecrackers together with people lite incense together with candles for an even out prayer.

And so they're off! Hard to larn slap-up photos here. The procession keeps moving pretty quick, at that spot are firecrackers going off randomly everywhere, it's nighttime together with I simply variety of indicate the photographic boob tube camera together with hope. It's all dissonance together with smoke for 10 minutes together with the procession heads through the hamlet .. so a 25 infinitesimal hold back together with the procession passes i time to a greater extent than heading dorsum to the shrine.

Over the weekend (27th together with 28th September), well, I should stimulate got perchance woken upwardly early i morn together with visited a shrine, but yesterday together with today I develop the alert for 5:45, woke up, turned it off together with decided that slumber was meliorate than pierced faces. But for sure inwards the adjacent few days I'll last heading out a yoke of times for street processions, firecrackers together with pierced faces. The adjacent three days characteristic processions from Bang Neow, Jui Tui together with Kathu shrines. And at that spot are even out events besides such every bit bladed ladder climbing together with burn downwards walking. Phuket Thailand-vegetarian-festival-2011-part-1">Schedule Here.
