    That's a bit tricky. Animal liberation needs to be carried out skillfully i.e. the animals shd be released in it's native environment...

    You might wanna try enquiring at Amitabha Buddhist Centre (ABC). Try to google online for their contact.

    By right animal release is wrong...most of the animals end up dying or starving to death, as they are not released in their natural habitat, its just cruel to see them end up this way.

    just came back from the thailand temple and the bright hill... it was raining just now...

    bright hill temple... rather crowded and ... i dunno wad to say... night shooting isnt that good after all.. but it was a experiment.

    the thailand temple is (no comments..) because when i was there... very little pple.. not much things to shoot either...

    so i dunno if 2molo i am going to go down to these 2 places again....

    maybe i will just visit the jurong soccer fields and do some shooting..
