One of my photos taken in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam last year is being featured in the local main Straits Times newspapers Life! Travel section (page C4) today, 10 January 2012 ! Hooray!! :-)
My photo featured Cao Dai laymen and priests during a service at the famous Cao Dai Temple in Vietnam. Cao Dai is a syncretist Vietnamese religious movement with a strongly nationalist political character. Most worshippers are lay followers, who wear pure white robes. Men with the rank of priest and higher have brightly colored robes reflecting their spiritual allegiance: yellow (symbolizing Buddhism and virtue), blue (Taoism and pacifism) or red (Confucianism and authority).
Special Thanks to Straits Times Life! Section Editorial Team for publishing my travel shot in today's papers! You have really made my day!! :-)
