St Anne's Feast

Around 11.30 pm on 25 July 2009. Sea of people in Bukit Mertajam, all congregating at the St Anne's Church. Where did they all come from? Meanwhile, as expected, the roads in the town were jampacked with cars and buses. That's what I was trying to avoid when I came back early from George Town yesterday afternoon. Anyway, there were not many cars going through my housing area. I must thank the residents' association volunteers for a job well done. They stopped cars from coming in and parking indiscriminately.

The old church from afar.

See what I mean? Worshippers by the tens of thousands.

Hundreds more inside the old church

Meanwhile, vendors tended to their roaring businesses
