Midnight ceremony of Chinese New Year

This photo is taken while me and my family were doing the Chinese New Year ceremony . Our family is nationally Thai but we have the ancestry from mainland China . ( I am quite the 3rd generation who live in Thailand ) . Traditionally , we do the offering ceremony for day and night . Also , we will lit the firecrackers ( it’s said to make the evil spirits run away ) and burn the joss papers ( to offer the dead people ) . The tradition of Chinese new year’s ceremony has passed on from generation to generation .

This ceremony of our family took place on midnight . The weather is chill a bit with some gust of wind blow to us . We had joss sticks , joss papers , oranges and some snacks . We didn’t buy too much thing for offering since the economic recession . So , we tried to save money as much as we can do . After the offering , we prayed to spirits for luck and prosperity and burn the joss papers . The smoke were scattered everywhere to nearby area , full of burning smell . ( In fact , the others families in the area do the ceremony as well .

We wished things will be better for us in next year ( 2016 ) and we went to bed .



Retro bus at night

Retro bus at night

One day at night , I took a bus to go home after my shopping at local mall . The bus looks very old retro style ( quite 20-30 years ago ) but still look good and unique . I took a difficult photo shot as the bus was shaking a lot . I aimed to the ceiling near the driver with light and very old style fan . It would be the lightest area on the bus since the other areas are much darker , that won’t be good for photo shoot .

Most buses in Thailand are old and outdated due to the lacking of development on public transportation . I don’t like the bus system but we have no choice . Sometime I dream of modern and high-tech buses in Thailand ( like in United Kingdoms or Germany ) . I hope someday we will be able to reform the transportation and get the new and better buses too .


White clouds over darker clouds ( RARELY SEEN )

Look like blue sky and stormy sky are in SAME time.

It’s quite RARELY SEEN . I took a shot this photo when I was going to shopping mall . I walked out of village along the road and saw the white clouds gathering above the ( other ) house . It looked so clear white on the top and cover the darker clouds . It’s look like the blue sky & stormy sky are in SAME time . The scene is look so beautiful like painting on canvas .


Village where I am living

Retro-Western style townhouse village

This is the area where I am living . It’s a large village full of townhouses there . The architecture is quite retro western style but the building’s quality is not so good . Many people who come to live in this village have to spend a lot of money for renovating and repairing their houses ( include mine too ) .

Anyway this place is look good by it’s own way , it reminds me of the Mediterranean style of building like in Italy or Greece . The resident designer of this village did the poor design for utility since they using concretes to build which is mainly absorb the heat . It’s not suitable for the tropical country ( Thailand ).


Orange cloud before dark

Sunset behind the cloud or Sun shine on the cloud ?

In the late evening , I opened the window on my home’s corridor and I was surprised to see the orange clouds in the sky . I wonder if the sun shine on those clouds or the sunset is behind the clouds . It’s look like a last light of a day before dark , so beautiful and eyes catching . So , I decided to take a shot and I love it .

It’s one of my favorite photo shoot of mine 🙂
