Photographer's Note

In Buddhist belief, fengshui somehow always playing a part when citing location to build a temple. Here it is a well chosen spot. photography, we choose a good POV and composition?

Tua Pek Kong temple of Sibu sits alongside the riverbank, as if to protect the arrivals of boats at the confluence of Rajang and Igan Rivers. At the front landscape, 4 words engrossed on the golden vase caught my attention. It says '4 Season's Peace', very optimistic message to wish all boats going upstream or downstream to sea a safe bon voyage, and also to viewers like you all a balanced life. Modern day Buddhism is really quite progressive and innovative to catch up with the times. Today, the temple organized pencil and water color art painting competition for school children to draw the scenery around the temple premise. I was a bit late and the event was over, so I took some shots of the optimistic sign language. The strategic placement of such a symbolic artwork is quite interesting. Thank you for viewing.
