Vanakam! Today is Deepavali so happy because later I am going out to visit my friends open houses. By the way, you might be wondering what is Athiradi Deepavali means? This is a new word for me too until I discover this last week. Athiradi means ‘a real enthusiasm’ or in Bahasa Malaysia it means ‘gempak’ its Gempak Deepavali then.


There were 6,000 pieces of freshly made muruku were given away to the shoppers, cooking demo by Adabi, Kolam Competition, Traditional Music Performances, showcase by OKU’s from Pusat Latihan Perindustrian & Pemulihan Orang Kurang Upaya from Bangi, performances by a local artist namely Salaam group, quizzes and a lot more fun and cheerful activities going on the whole day during Athiradi Deepavali celebration @ Mydin USJ last week.
