"Fortune cookies" in a box

fortune teller
Feeling curious or wanting to know about your future? Well, you can get some rough picture of it by drawing a 20 cents out from your pocket and start shaking a handful of sticks with different numbering printed at the edge of each stick. A stick might drop up from the container while you're shaking it carefully. You should then check the number jotted on the stick and approach to this box to collect the paper of your number. You may have some hints by reading the "fortune cookies". Mostly, you may find this in a Chinese temple. Do you think it's too superstitious? I might say that sometimes it would be a good way of guiding you out when you're lost.

Note: Picture taken in a Chinese temple at Kuala Kubu Bharu.

p/s: I'm dead NOT. lol.

Signs of aging

chinese temple
That's a Chinese word at the top of the picture. And "sick" is what the word means. I think that one gets more sick as he/ she's getting older, don't you think?

I'm having a BAD gastric now. I shall name it the Sign of Aging.

You can tell that it's a part of a temple. I'll tell you what temple it is by showing more photos soon. ;)

Theme Day: The Color Blue

tioman island

It's time for everyone to participate in the monthly theme day again! This photo was taken during my trip to Tioman Island, a small island, 39 km long and 12 km wide, located off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia. Whilst our small speed boat was stopping by few jetty before reaching our final destination, I saw this guy sleeping on his small blue boat (I wasn't that sure if it's his boat).

Must be a nice short nap during a hot weather, I guess. ;)
