Just a short note to say I am going to this event to take photographs of the proceedings on 2-3 days, it is happening here in Penang, Malaysia.
1st Day there is the Coconut smashing
2nd Day the link should explain this better than me, but it’s not for the squeamish you have been warned!
3rd Day not sure what is happening on that day, as there are currently no references that I can find
Wikipedia explanation of the festival
