Penang Cultural and Heritage Celebration (3)

Today is a gift.

We were gifted to go back to the old Shanghai, with the newest and coolest camera gadgets.

We were gifted in such a way to shuttle between the romance of the olden days and the excitement of Chingay performance, just within minutes.





So I looked around. Looking carefully for the extra-ordinary gadgets around me, and looking for the people for what they chatted and acted did not belong to the present moment. Someone must have come back from the future.

For the future is gifted in the same manner in its time as well.

Great takes, ESP good eye contact with the subjects on pic no.2.

Was in Penang for a super short business trip last week so unable to visit the great places in the island. The Nasi Kandar was good tho.

This indeed is one most interesting blog--your posts always amazing!

Maybe from another post?, this line kept me entranced (sort of!):

"Every moment will be history, and an eternity, and the past always meet with the present infinitely." Oh, how I can wrap my thoughts aound that... it is NOW which matters, and that is why!
Thank you, Rain-Guy (or girl, I don't really know who is there?!)
