Your life is like a balloon…if you never let yourself go, you will never know how far you can rise.

This is one of the first pictures I’ve taken in 2014. I was in Kuching as the new year clock strikes 12 for the opening of a temple we frequented about once per year. I didn’t know that the ceremony was so grand that there were local reporters ( from RTM 1; i think) filming the entire occasion. Perhaps it was because a politician was one of the guest of honour. Speaking of that, the additional guests of honours were monks from Tibets and China. And their apparel were exactly like those filmed on TV. Cool!
The ceremony was an eye-opener; there were a lot of chanting in language that I can’t understand, the mirror-shining while chanting on 3 Buddha statues, the cleaning of statues and the sprinkling of holy water on all who were present etc.
On a side note: Did you know that I saw one of the biggest fireworks in my life! It was longer than my hands stretched from side to side.. (or I have short hands hahaha )
In response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition
PS Juxtaposition, the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect. I guess a big balloon in a residential area counts? (:
