Vesak Day

I was in the vicinity when i saw quite a number of people standing in the pathway, being a busybody, i went to join in and see what's going on.


(1) The guy in the front will make some noise indicating their presence


(2) The guy behind carry a statue of (not too sure what God is that)


(3) The monk behind collecting ang pao (saw those people putting in ang pao into the bowl)


(4) Saw these monk drawing water


(5) Then they pour the water into the tree behind


(6) I can only take a quick snap from a distance as people passing through

  3. Good Afternoon Queen of Zumba!

    So you saw a Wesak Day ceremony. I wonder if they were Thais or Myanmar people. The sarong the men wore could be from Myanmar, Laos or Cambodia.
