This night shot of Kek Lok Si Temple makes me think of some fairy-tale castle right out of a children's storybook.

Phoebe, they light up the whole temple for 15 days during Chinese New Year. Sometimes when I am taking these night shots I thought I saw silver fairies with golden wands flitting about Smile

Kayes, I'm sure you did see 'them silvery thingies' flitting about. Smile


Oh, this reminds me. Did you folks above the Equator have the chance to see the 'Smiley' in the night sky two nights ago? I'm talking about the smiley face formed by the rare alignment of Jupiter and Venus directly above the 3-day-old lunar crescent. I did take a few pics with my basic digicam and of course, they did not turn out too clearly. But there are a couple of shots (taken with unsteady hands) that make the 'smiley' look quite eerie.

There was no mention of Smiley either in our newspapers or TV. I wonder whether we could have seen it clearly from here.

I know folks in Hong Kong definitely saw it with no problems whatsoever. It is clearly visible to the naked eye. And of course, the Chinese take it as an extremely auspicious sign.
