Photo blog: Deepavali at the heart of Johor Bahru

Colourful lights, sweetmeats, festive cookies and traditional cloths filled the heart of Johor Bahru town again this year, where more lots were made available to vendors and a bigger crowd turned up to shop to their heart’s content. It looks like JB people are going all out for festive preparations this year.

Semua boleh, mem: Diwali fashion for all
A bout of stage fright
