Loy Krathong

It's Loy Krathong (ลอยกระทง) today! which is also known as the "Festival Of Lights" similar to the hindu Deepavali festival, Loy Krathong is celebrated on the 12 days of the 12 month in the Thai Calender, which falls on Nov 12 every year. It was believe that this celebration originated from Sukhotai, the first capital of Thailand around 700 years ago.

Daddy got home early today after meeting and thought it would be nice to see how is this festival being celebrated here, unfortunately both thai temple we visited today wasn't celebrating it. The Thai temple at Taman Cheras as well as Chetawan Temple along Jalan Gasing.
