Wordless Wednesday - Hello Kitty and friends in Penang Safari

I dug through some photos which were taken in 2007 and I thought I would share them for this week's Wordless Wednesday. The Lantern Festival in Auto-City, Juru, Penang comes bustling with a spectacular display of colourful lights, vibrant colours and intricate designs of amazing lanterns.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, everyone!

  10. ECL,
    yes, i like the peacock too. HK has a loyal following across the globe mainly of young females who consider her the epitome of cuteness.
