    I did do some more Googling about the holiday/celebration. I read this:

    “This serves to remind fellow Buddhists to purify the mind from greed, lead noble lives and practise morality and kindness.”
    A good thing for all to follow. 🙂

      Hi! Vesak Day is a great event in Buddhism, is just like Good Friday or Easter day.
      This is the day where commemorates Buddha birth, enlighten and death. 🙂
      It is very popular and great event especially in Asia.

    I am a bit picky when it comes to the photo, the camera gives a nice shallow depth of view, but I do not know why the ‘bokeh’ shape is distorted, probably due to some strange opening of the aperture in the camera. I missed my parents, I just loved to follow them to the temple and see all the ceremony.

      I’m so glad you highlighted to me! Most properly I did not focus properly or could be hand shake not much!
      I was quite running out of time at that time, as I need to finish up my shooting before I start to help them selling drinks!
      Wow! Till now, I can’t forget the night in the temple! This could be my one of the most memorable day in my life! 🙂
