I love this pic from my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur. This is taken at the gates of the Sultan’s Palace, Kuala Lumpur. Bus loads of tourists come here and pose with the sentry on duty at the gates and snap themselves up. The horse sifts around while the soldier mounting him has to sit still, without batting an eyelid.

The usually restless horsey took a liking for me – may be it was the red shirt – so he went on to give me a ‘rub-down’ while I posed for my pic. I kind of freaked out, but tried not to show. I kind of looked through the corners of my eyes to see what he was up to and then later when I got the snap, I saw even the soldier was looking through the corners of his eyes to see what his horse was up to!

Great snap, great memory, pure horseplay!
