Happy Deepavali to all my new friends
What a welcome to the Deepavali Open House at Times Square today, I was greeted as a foreginer, but welcomed as a friend, with handshakes, many Happy Deepavali given and received, and the friendliest welcome I have had in ages at a large gatherting of people for a fantastic food and friendshp event.
It’s the first time I had ever been to this type of event as it’s not celebrated as much in the UK or Europe where I am from. I enjoyed your company – so thank you all in Penang for the welcomes you gave me.
Some photos from the event can be seen below:
