Ponggal Festival, Kampung Buah Pala

UPDATE, JUNE 5: Visit jeritpenang.blogspot.com for more info

UPDATE, JUNE 4: Residents were given 30-day eviction notice last month. Eviction day is supposed to be on 11th June. Come for a press conference to see the residents’ side of the story – June 6th (Saturday), 2pm, at Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor. Is this the next Kampung Berembang?

I took these photos at the Ponggal festival at Kg Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor, Penang. Ponggal at Kg Buah Pala was bigger this year to celebrate their heritage as its residents fight a court case against developers who are trying to evict them and demolish their houses. The Star has also reported the event.
