Peace and Calm.
Was how I felt when I was at the Wong Tai Sin Temple, one of the biggest and more popular temples in Hong Kong. I came on a weekday so it was nice a quiet here. Really zen. A part of it was under renovation so I didn’t get to see the temple in it’s entirety, but that was also fine. Why? Because it was hot as hell that day. I don’t think I could have survived walking through the whole temple anyway.
After the temple (which I spent about 15 minutes only) I walked through a residential area (in Wong Tai Sin). Even though I moved back to Toronto, I still sometimes miss the lifestyle here. It’s a hard knock life (Jay Z reference) for those that are living in public housing, in one of the world’s more expensive cities. Things would have been so different if my parents never immigrated to Canada. Have to be thankful for that.
