Shalmy's first hair cut

Shalmy's first hair cut, originally uploaded by rickirick.

After bidding a farewell to Tokyo, I went back to Kuala Lumpur. I spent the weekend to visit Batu Caves, a popular Hindu shrine outside India. This Indian baby girl in picture is Shalmy, she is brought out to Batu Caves by her family for the first hair cut in her life. In Hindu tradition, the hair from birth is associated as undesirable traits from past lives, so here Shalmy is freshly shaven to signify freedom from the past and moving into her future.
Be growing up as a nice girl Shalmy! :)
