A beautiful and aromatic ambience..

As pretty.
These synthetic flowers will brighten any home..

The Famous Buddha Tooth Relic Temple..

An abundance of lanterns ..

By evening..
The traffic!

The crowd started streaming in..

People taking pictures of and with the magical surroundings..

At the foot of this stairway..

This lady could paint your name beautifully..

Like these ..

Many decorative items besides the yummy food ..

Lions hung in a row..

Check out these 'Lucky Grass Dolls'..

There was an auction going on..

The lady, seemed to be skillful at what she does...

A truly festive atmosphere..

At the end of the day,
this was what I needed ..
Cold and fresh coconut drinks..
At only S$1.20 each.
I could have multiples,
to quench my thirst

Going home..
