We were staying at the Shangri La Hotel in Dubai. In the foyer, they had this tiny stage with a backdrop celebrating Malaysia. Must be one of those Tourist thingies.
It faced the foyer restaurant where we had our breakfast.
Anyway, the first night, there was this chap with some tea in two mugs.
Finished pouring the tea and then he rests. Amazing.
The second night, we saw a whole bunch of dancers. Here are their photographs. They are just so graceful and wonderful. Moving with quiet flowing grace, from one pose to another. Absolutely beautiful. They reminded me of quietly flowing waterfalls. Boughs heavy with frangipani flowers which get slowly saturated with heavy warm monsoon rain and then slowly dip to shed the water. Thick Mango pulp and juice flowing over the lip of a jug into your glass. A slowly turning ceiling fan in the hot humid climate. A cloud of brilliantly coloured butterflies slowly flitting over a mat of rich colourful flowers.
The shadows were interesting as well, although the lighting sucked.
They just move so gracefully, beautiful. Here is the slideshow with more photographs. These South East Asian Countries have just so beautiful dancers. More more more!
