I have had this dress made in two colors, but ended up not so fond of them both as a dress "dress", I always feels like nightie's are not appropriate for a real dinner date, more to casual date probably. It is just me. I would think differently a couple years back. Anyways, how's your Christmas shopping, mine was okay considering... all the dresses out there are nightie's look! haha... LOL
Pablo Neruda,Moolamala in Kuala Lumpur. Mala is a Buddhist prayer beads. It is used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, counting prostrations, or the repetitions of a Buddha's name. They are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions such as Rosary, Tasbih and such.
The conventional Buddhist tradition counts the beads at 108, signifying the mortal desires of mankind. The number is attributed to the Mokugenji Sutra wherein Shakyamuni Buddha instructed King Virudhaka to make such beads and recite the Three Jewels of Buddhism.
Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads; I made mine as a necklace solely thus I do not count the beads. Enjoy the picture after the jump!
The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. Dedicated to Lord Murugan, it is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.
Batu Caves in short also referred as 10th Caves or Hill for Lord Muruga as there are six important holy shrines in India and four more in Malaysia. The three others in Malaysia are Kallumalai Temple in Ipoh, Tanneermalai Temple in Penang and Sannasimalai Temple in Melacca.
The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan people (a tribe of Orang Asli).
As early as 1860, Chinese settlers began excavating guano for fertilizing their vegetable patches. However, they became famous only after the limestone hills were recorded by colonial authorities including Daly and Syers as well as American Naturalist, William Hornaday in 1878.
In 1890, Pillai, who also founded the Sri Mahamariamman Temple in KL, installed the Murti (consecrated statue) of Sri Murugan Swami in what is today known as the Temple Cave. Since 1892, the Thaipusam festival in the Tamil month of Thai (which falls in late January/early February) has been celebrated there.
Wooden steps up to the Temple Cave were built in 1920 and have since been replaced by 272 concrete steps. Mind the scaffolding and the constructions, it is still a very nice cave and site to visit.
I sometimes look back to my bucket list of travel and reminisce. Quiet often, I grow and change destinations, and sometimes I dream more and awake jolted!
It is the time in my life that there's just more than a few person that I met, many things that I heard, parties I went—that touched my life. I am striving to stay awake to be in the moment, I soak all the smell, the view and the sound—then I captured the moments when they come. It so happened that the moments in my life are mountaintops! Can't you tell? I can't resist not snapping at these moments, seriously! Enjoy the picture after the jump,
Thomas Hardy was introduced to me by an English Literature lecturer --my mom. Among all those beautiful word stringing writers, he's my favorite! This write up is unrelated, it's... just.
Every one of us must have experience of losing something precious to us; lost opportunities, lost possibilities, even losing feelings that we can never get back.
Such as life, it goes on and losing is part of being alive. Should you walk in life while you are gifted to listen to other people' head, would you walk a straight line? Would you be able to concentrate and walk away?
Or do you stop and reaching out to the one that cried --especially when your conscious told you to do so.
Coda, Desire, that ought to shut it down for 4:08 minutes.
Okay, so that's not a correct comparison; let me rephrase,
I do yoga since 2005 and not posting any pose on my Instagram ever–while some people post like almost daily; compared to I have been reading books and hoard them–but I don't post...
And this does not come right either...
Laughing out loud!
I have been browsing (stalking) and 2-tapping images from some book nerds (there are people like me out there, I thought I am the only one!)
So here is a special post on what I currently read and what I am going to read next (if the hoarding does not persist).
What about you guys? What have you been reading lately and want to recommend it to me? I read just about everything!
This Haruki Murakami book is my current read,
These books are my TBR, to be read,
