Thailand Monks

Went by to Thailand with @xysg and @tangenghui on the 13th – 16th July 2011.
Gonna bring you a series of photos from there in the upcoming entries. :)

In this entry, let’s take a look at the photos taken in the morning, of the Monks.

Read from a website, about their daily routine:

There are over 29,000 temples in Thailand and the daily routine of the monks in all of them is pretty much the same…

4.00 am – The monks wake up and meditate for one hour, followed by one hour of chanting.
6.00 am – The monks walk barefoot around the neighbourhood while the local people make merit by offering them food.
8.00 am – Returning to the temple, the monks sit together to eat breakfast, then make a blessing for world peace.

Before 12.00 noon – Some monks choose to eat a light lunch at this time. This is the last solid food they are allowed to consume until sunrise the following morning.Row of seated Buddhas

1.00 pm – Classes in Buddhist teaching begin. Some monks may attend school outside the temple.
6.00 pm – A two-hour session of meditation and prayer begins.
8.00 pm – The monks retire to do homework.

Pretty true, cos we woke up really early *considering its a holiday* to give alms and take photos. :D

Got a nightmare some nights ago. :D
In the dream, I was preparing for a trip overseas in the future.
Secured the tickets to get there, but having problem getting the returning tickets.

Dunno why, I could keep traveling overseas and back just trying to secure the returning tickets of that future trip.

:D Weird dream huh?

Yes… being able to return home is very important to me. So important that I even dreamt about it. :D

Anyway,
That was the first thing I went to locate when I finally got to KL. :D
To collect/redeem my return ticket from Five Star Travels.
and it sure took me alot of hassle…

Met someone new while I was trying to figure out how to get to the Monorail. :D

Him having his hair tied up, camera bag/or was it a water tumblr bag? with DSLR down his neck, lens hood, def not a newbie camera user like me.

Was figuring my way out to get to the Monorail station, asking personnel at the counters, trying to capture key points of what they said: “2 escalator, cross road, kiri” :D
Thats all that I need. :D
