Thai New Year Festival...

Mark and I went to Thai temple in Berkeley this morning. I went to pray and gave food to monks as the traditional things to do today. Although the official New Year is on January 1, we're still celebrated the traditional Thai New Year as a national holiday.

Besides praying and giving food, dancing and water throwing are also the ways to celebrate.

By the way, we did have sticky rice and mango for lunch. There was a long line waiting for meals, so we decided not to wait. Before the crowd start throwing water to each other, we headed out for home.

Beautiful pics Thip! Maybe you should've stuck around for the water-- but your camera might not like it :)

Thanks Mark. My camera would be fine, but we were there very early and got tired of the crowd--needed some nap. :P

Thank you ka P'Thip for sharing the nice moment ka.
