Festive decorations


What is Chinese New Year without red, festive decorations? Red and gold are the two most ultimate color to represent the occasion.The chinese characters written on the banners are all about welcoming prosperity and wealth. Most people like to hang the banners or other little decorations in their house to bring in good fortune for the new year.

Chuckle


It's been a long while since I last posted a photograph. In fact, it's been a long while since I last touch my camera too. Sigh... the only thing that's keeping me from taking photos is work. I have the time now because of the coming public holidayS due to Chinese New Year! Just took a number of shots at Chinatown. Will be posting them tmrw.
This is a shot of my youngest cousin taken last Christmas. He's going to be a year's old soon!

Reconstructions in Phi Phi Island, Thailand


One year after the tsunami, reconstructions are still in the process. I doubt the houses are for the local residents. They look more like tourist chalets.

Wat Chalong Temple


This is one of the most famous temple in Phuket. It is Phuket’s most important Buddhist temple and is the biggest and most ornate of Phuket’s 29 Buddhist monasteries. Here's the main hall. Many Thais come here to be blessed by the monks and receive a good luck charm in the form of a string tied around the wrist, which they believe would protect them from injury and illness.
