GE13, General Election 2013 for Malaysia. The city of Kuala Lumpur is exceptionally quite on the eve of election day.
The town is not crowded with locals and foreign workers. I guess everyone is traveling to vote.
If you are visiting Malaysia, you can witness the unique harmonious multi-racial society. Indian and Chinese have known to pray in each other’s temples based on individual’s believe. It is this kind of open acceptance and tolerance that makes us proud to be Malaysian.
Scrawling underneath the altar 3 rounds is a ritual to grant devotee’s wishes. This has a been practice in the oldest Chinese Temple in Kuala Lumpur, the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple 仙四师爷庙 (1864).
If Ta Phrom gives the impression of serpent-liked tree root, then visitors will walk out from the Bayon Temple with hundreds of large ‘faces’ in their mind.
The footsteps of Chinese New Year are fast approaching, even before the arrival of Christmas and before 2012 New Year.
