Hello everybody, I just thought that I’d share with you these lovely photos taken at our office this week. Over the years it is like a tradition for us to decorate the offices during the many wonderful festivities that we have here in Malaysia. Monday, 27Th November, is when we celebrate Deepavalli.. the festival of lights and here we have the ‘allstars’ (what we call ourselves here at AirAsia) working on and posing with the beautiful ‘kolam’ done right in front at the reception.

‘Kolam’ is a form of sand painting using rice powder by the female members of the family in front of their homes, a common practice of Hindus of South India. ‘Kolams’ are thought to bestowed prosperity to homes.. hopes this helps our non Malaysian friends understand what it is.

Happy Deepavalli everyone!!
