Wesak Day 2010

This year marks the 10th anniversary that I've been a volunteer at the temple during key events, such as Wesak Day. I could still remember exactly 10 years ago today, I came to Brickfields Maha Vihara (BMV), as a student helper, with my friends from the Buddhist Society all the way back during the good ol' MBS days. After that year, came the Novitiate Program in 2002 where I was a novice monk for 10 days. Looking back hahaha... how time flies...

So this year, without fail, I was there at BMV as a volunteer again, distributing holy water and strings as well as helping out a little at the oil lamp section :-) Having time to do some charity work amongst my crazy and busy schedule keeps me sane and reminds me that after all that I have achieved today, I'm blessed and most of all, I'm only human. This picture was taken 2 years ago today, also at BMV. I think that I looked even more like a kid back then :p

And these are the pics taken this year.

I am very happy this year that besides me and Sis, we have a new member joining our little charity gang hehehe Darling...

We did not join the procession as we were quite exhausted and so we went for dinner with Mom and Dad instead, at Dragon-i. No photos of food here as I think the food is just average and highly overrated. Really not up to my expectations. But I shall not complain any further as the bill was settled via cash vouchers redeemed from credit card points. So if you ask me if I shall go to Dragon-i again, the answer is a definite No! Thank you :)

Happy Wesak Day to you and your family. May you all be well and happy... always.
