Holi // Singapore 2015

in category Travel

We all like to celebrate. Whether it is a promotion at work, a praise from someone you admire or just simple things in life, you don’t need to find an excuse to celebrate. So when you are given one to celebrate, party and have good clean fun, you grab the proverbial horse and ride your way into the dancing sunset.

I WANNA SEE THEM HANDS IN THE AIR


I WANNA SEE THEM HANDS IN THE AIR

Holi is the celebration of Good over Evil, a day to forget and forgive and to end yourself of your errors. What better way to do that then to throw coloured powder at random strangers, shouting “Happy Holi!” while they do the same to you. You can run away from them, but there will always be another happy seeker willing to powder you up like a toddler trying fingerpainting for the first time.


“Let me help you look the prettiest you could ever be.”

In Singapore, it’s heartening to see people from all races and all walks of life coming together, forgetting their differences and being happy to be alive. Suddenly everyone is friends with each other, awkwardness and personal spaces forgotten. Suddenly everyone collectively remembers how to dance, singing along to the latest pop hits. Suddenly everyone smiles, their troubles forgotten.

It’s amazing.

I had a massive amount of fun, bullying and teasing friends and strangers alike. Even if you accidentally get some into their eye, they cringe a little, smile and try to exact the same on you. Your inner kid bubbles to the surface, excited to be free from the chains of society and urges you to go forth and play.


Happy Faces all round


Hello You


And hello myself

 

And oh boy, did we play.
