According to TheStar, our dearest PM and our so-called First Lady, would be at the Buddhist Maha Vihara this Wesak Day. On top of that, a celebrity chef would be cooking up a special dish for the honoured couple as well. What this tells me is that I would need to avoid going to temple early.
You see, I normally do my thing on Wesak Day in the morning. I would normally go to Brickfields, and perform some dana on that day – donating blood and some cash. I don’t go for the prayer or blessing sessions since I’m just there to do my own thing. I may bump into people I know and say a few words but little more. My parents would normally be volunteering and helping out with things there.
Now that our PM is going to be there at 9.30am, I would need to avoid the crowd. This means that I should really get there either well before that or well after. I guess that it is a good idea to get there real early in the morning so that I can get things over and done with. Then, I can have the rest of the day to myself.
I could feasibly cram a few chapters of FF13 into the rest of the day.
