    Last year I went to one large temple around bishan there, saw people have this "every 3 step and then knee down to pray" (please correct my english)... actually I accidently passby the place and went down to see the crowd will be going there this year again to take some photos, anyone?

    p.s. very crowded...

    Hi,

    Any idea of what time will the celebrations start? Would there be anything interesting this weekend?

    Feeling the urge to flex some photographic muscle.

    I can't find any timing for the light up ceremony. Any clue as to what time it will be?

    Since the light up launch is on 3rd May, I presume by dark, it should be ready.. But activities wise not sure whether it will be bustling that fast.. Maybe a couple more days it will pick up?

    It is call "circumambulation" or 三步一拜 in Chinese, the participants will go around the temple clockwise 3 times.

    was down earlier. Met two other photographers. Both on Canon systems. Haha.. nice speaking to them. Btw, I'm the Nikon Dude.

    Anyways, the light up is along the South Bridge Road.. its got this double dragon thingy going on. As for the temple, it was pretty quiet tonight. They were basically preparing the place for the masses next week. Nevertheless, managed to take some shots. Will post soon.
