monkey king meets the ninja turtles

We visited another temple in Ipoh during the end of my trip in Malaysia [the name of the temple escapes me at the moment.] This one was different than others i've visited. We've come here on two or 3 occassions when I was younger but this time was different. I felt very at peace this time. The area had a strong, calming presence all around.

Also, the place had huge gangs of monkeys that acted like they owned the place. You could see them swinging in the trees on the mountains along with hanging out on roof tops. They're not scared by people at all, which i'm not sure if it's a good or bad thing.

I've been in Singapore for the last few days now and it's interesting how different it is here. Everything is a lot faster paced, especially in the business district. Tons of people rushing to work in the mornings from the subway with heavy traffic all the time. Sort of like a miniature Metropolis. Pictures of that coming soon.

Yup yup I am free of borders (Saturday's my last day I think). I am stoked.
These pics are amazing, I really wish I could see this stuff first hand. You have no idea how lucky you are (or maybe you do, I dunno).
