Rainy Afternoon On 5th September 2012

As I am still resting at home, recuperating from my sickness....suddenly, it begins to rain which this morning, it was such a sunny day.  Here are some photos taken from my residence....well, just for fun and to kill my time... The sound of the falling rain is calming and it brings peace to me...

Ramdon Shots Around Klang Valley

It is such a boring Saturday afternoon, so, I thought I put up some random shots around Klang Valley or alternatively known as Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area (consisting, the districts of: Kuala Lumpur, Selayang, Gombank, Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Subang, Serdang, Puchong, Klang, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and Kajang). Just some photos for your eyes and viewing.....

A Tin Mug - In Memory of My Late Father

Recently, the Chinese, the Buddhist all around the world, celebrated the annual Chinese 7th Lunar Month's Ulambana Festival. It is a day where one pays filial piety to his/her parents and ancestors, to help them to be released from all sufferings from their past negative accumulated karmas. Special Buddhist prayers on that day, could be dedicated to the dead or the living...including to oneself.

As I was sicked, on 25 August 2012, I could not join my family members for the Ulambana prayer for my late father, where his ashes is placed at the Kwong Tung Chinese Cemetery (Heritage Park)'s Pagoda.  I have no regret but peace, to have spent 8 full months with my late father on father-son moments before his last breath....

Here is a photo of the exact type of tin mug that my late father always like to use for his drinks, i.e. for his iced tea, iced orange juice, soft drinks, including hot beverages....you could always hear the stainless steel teaspoon cling-clang when he stirred his drinks / beverages in the tin mug....and you know, Daddy's home.....

A tin mug - in memory of my beloved late father....Namo Amitabha, Namo Amitabha, Namo Amitabha.
