Wat Lao Buddhamoongcoon
Posted on 16 April 2012
My site was down last night now its back up BUT for some odd reason the pages wont work, when clicking on the pages it said the pages does not exist… Well for now, I’ll still post until it is fixed again!
The website is back up and running now, including the posted pages. One problem, I lost ALL my plugins so that means I am going to have to upgrade my blog/wordpress to the newest version and then I’ll re-add all the plug ins again. I hope to get that done hopefully before class tonight, if not, hopefully no later than tomorrow. I hate to have my blog looking a mess. Until it is fully back up, enjoy!
Happy Songkran! Hopefully I spelled it right. I did said in my previous post that I went to two New Years yesterday. First we went to Wat Buddha Bucha, and then we head out to Wat Lao Buddhamoongcoon, a few miles down. Like I’ve said before, it was a great experience and I had a wonderful time. At Wat Lao Buddhamoongcoon, we went just in time for the water and saving cream festival. Of course I avoided that part, did not want to get wet or creamed up. We went inside the temple for a bit and hen we went to the little room to do the blessing/fortune. I have no idea what my fortune said so I am hoping that Nye’s sister will help translate it for me soon. I also got a monk to tie a white and pink string on my right hand as well. My friend said that I should keep it on for 3 days and then take it off. It is very similar to Hmong people’s Khi tev, in a way.
The female monk white nun (Mae Chee) blessed the water and then uses a flower/plant to splash the water onto them.

that’s me, washing the buddha image.
