Not much excitement from today, but continuous non-stop excitement is tiring and harmful to health.
Looking to my right side, the second picture thus reflected what has actually been imprinted in my mind. I always love the mirror-like water surface that tells the true story of the actual things. You should have enjoyed a few if you have walked along with me for all these times. If not, these water colour or not an ugly duckling are nice as appetizers. Otherwise you can find some similarities at Mengkuang Dam.
Please do not be over jealous of the vastness of greeneries which almost overwhelms my surrounding, either on top of or on the water and you will then end up as a green-eyed monster.
I stayed for a while trying to figure out the best angle for the pictures before MyJourney continued for next stop.
(Hopefully this post will not be the evidence that I have broken the law).
Luckily they did not have their class in the morning. I was then imagining their school life kind of similar to mine.

The temple is the biggest in Southeast Asia, but size does not tell story. This is the place where we understand and learn about Buddhism through everything that comes into our sight.Pagoda of ten thousands Buddhas: This pagoda is having a Chinese octagonal base with the external facades of the rising levels are Thai and a Burmese crown.
As far as I know, termites live either in large conical mounds that can be easily seen in the forest or inside a building. This was the first time I found them building their nest atop a living tree. Anyhow I have not cleared my doubt on how long the tree can survive after the termite infestation.
From the information then I know further about the nest that I had found earlier on the branches was actually an arboreal termite nest.
To avoid being overpowered by ants and other predators when exposed, termites cover their tracks with tubing made of faeces, plant matter and soil. These "sheltered tunnels" on a tree trunk can be seen in the last picture.
This is what I have learnt from the nature this morning.
What had drawn to my attention was the round hole found on the wood. It must be done by no other than a woodpecker.
I had not seen the woodpecker around but I felt I had seen it. It was working so hard by then on the last rescue to the tree though it was in vain at the end.
(Why must it be a circular hole but not other shapes? It is funny to ask myself without having an answer).
By the way, this rotten wood had pulled my attention. I had then pulled the attention of passers-by.
