Deepavali, Malaysian Style

Today is a public holiday for Malaysians where we are celebrating one of the main festivals for Indians called Deepavali. So, we took the opportunity to visit a Hindu friend together with a few others. It was a merry gathering with a mixed of races, we had Malays, Indian and Chinese altogether and we sit together to eat murukku - the Indian version of crunchy pretzel I would say plus the delicious mutton curry with rice. Moreover, the celebration was kind of an added bonus as our friend just celebrated the gift of receiving a sets of newborn twins. :)
