No idea why the moon appeared in this way, the only reason could be me not holding the camera properly....lol
It's really the moon only. :)
Still in the vicinity of kwan Im Temple, I spotted some people touching the laughing buddha. The laughing buddha belongs to a shop in the background just next to the Kwan Im temple. The shop sells mainly buddhist statues, artefacts, charms, etc. The owner was smart to attract customers by placing a huge laughing buddha outside his shop. Not sure how it started, but everyone seems to touch the laughing buddha for luck, blessings and etc.
And no, I dont follow suit, never went to touch the laughing buddha....lol. No. 1, am a free thinker, No. 2, since SARS(a deadly unknown disease), never wanted to touch anything that have so many people touch.
I know of a friend who dont go out because it is 14 (means sure die in cantonese)....lol. So you could only see him out in the street except on the 14th of every month, dont he go to work on the 14? And someone I knew had No. 8(means prosper in chinese) on his car license plate, house number, telephone telephone, etc but now he is a bankrupt. I am just happy and contented with each day waking up still alive. :)
Sorry for the shaky video...lol. I was minding my steps and not holding the camera properly.

The man is making sugar cane juice by squeezing the sugar cane through this machine. Sorry for the short video because too many people walking up and down the alley and block my camera view.
Hahaha....just fooling around with my camera and video the new exit out of Orchard MRT Station. It looked so much spacious and brighter than the old exit.
This is a very inconsiderate act by this young male adult. We are not allowed to eat in the train and this guy was eating a packet of chicken noodle. Inconsiderate because the smell was so strong and it filled the train's carriage, I hate the smell of food in airconditioned train or bus.
If he/she was an elderly or small kid, I would not have taken this video but the smell of the chicken noodle made me turn to his direction and I was shocked to see him happily tucking the packet of chicken noodle and talking to his girlfriend....lol.
So I took my phone camera and take a candid shot of him and he only stopped eating when he looked at my direction and not because of me (he was too busy to take notice of me videoing him...lol), it was the train security guy walking to his direction and he gave this guy a warning to stop eating. I think the train security guy was kind enough to just give him a warning, I would have give him a fine on the spot. The fine is $500 , that would have bought this guy many packets of chicken noodles ....lol (Each packet cost about $2 to $3).
