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. 😀
Got invited to Fisherman’s Market recently,
Its a seafood buffet restaurant from Japan.
Located at Central, diners get a wonderful view of the evening sky across the river
Got a nightmare some nights ago. 😀
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.
😀 Weird dream huh?
Yes… being able to return home is very important to me. So important that I even dreamt about it. 😀
That was the first thing I went to locate when I finally got to KL. 😀
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. 😀
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” 😀
Thats all that I need. 😀
Been to KL and back!
Think most of us would have known by now that the KTM train services from Tanjong Pagar would cease services from the 25th June Weekend on?
So, lucky me!
Went down to PigeonHole the other day to visit CaKe‘s exhibition.
has always been impressed by these kind of photoshoot.
Models of a unique identity and a style of their own.
Provocative and yet stylish…
Was walking around the place, taking photos when I felt one thing I could shoot were the paths, the paths uphill, the paths to their house. 🙂
Not really alot of variety, boards or cement. 🙂
How come they can run on this kind of boards? Or even ride a bike across? O_O
Its beyond my comprehension….
Ladies and Gentleman, may I present to you…
Of concrete and wooden boards…
Happy Vesak Day everyone!
