Sikh New Year Open House.

Okie.. Last Saturday, find the date yourself, I attend this Sikh New Year Open House organize by The Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia (Penang Branch) at New World Park, Penang. A lot of happening at NWP recently, and I like it ^__^.

I am among the earliest crowd, except those organiser there lah. So I got chance to walk around to see until where they will use until which including the main stage in NWP.

I start with the exhibition set up for the event. Some historical about the Sikhs, relics and some dolls in Punjabi clothing were on display.
Basically, is mainly a celebration for them, just like other races celebrating their New Year. This is my first time attend a Sikh's Open House. According to the Emcee, they did celebrate last year at Esplanade. I din't go last year due to I don't know and not into this thing yet.

Somehow, this year I can take this opportunity to learn a bit about others cultural. And event is the field I like, so I can learn the set up for different event that I attend.

Anyway, the crowd start to fill the seats provided near the stage, while waiting for the arrival of V.I.P, the crowd were welcome by the Emcee. Noh.. I can see a lot people chatting among themselves. It's just like a reunion for them too?

Then, the Emcee announce the arrival of the V.I.P and all of us got to stand up and welcome them. I din't sit anyway..
