The desert rose was greeting me each morning outside the hotel;)
A huge Kuan Yin at the monastery we visited.
She is just my favorite.
I took this picture laying on the floor . This is the pagoda of 10.000 Buddhas.
Inside the cone shaped stupas are thousands of Buddha images.
The hall of no form where the great Buddha was.
My sweet colleague Linda (Tashi Karma ♥) and me.
I had a great time with her!
Sometimes you have this immediate click with people.
I was lucky to meet her.
Rooftop with dragons and pagoda.
The Sri Mariamman temple in Chinatown Singapore.
I have been here a couple of times before, but it is always good to return.
Please take of your shoes........
I walked behind these little Buddha broters on Orchard road and I thought it was such a sweet site.....
Yes and even how wonderful it was in the end we all wanna go home!
After a long nap I am still a bit groggy, but tomorrow I hope to be the old me again and visit you all to see what I have been missing.
Don't forget to click on the links for more pictures and information ;)

    I especially love the one you took of the temple ceiling (lying on the floor).....that is the kind of shot I love to take - and to see.
