E Ma Ho!

Amazing! Double rainbows were spotted over the sky of Pudu, Kuala Lumpur — Nature’s colorful spectrum always elicits the same pattern (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) when light is refracted.

Red is the first or the topmost color in a rainbow and is the color of energy, enthusiasm and passion. Red is also the color with the longest wavelength, and it symbolizes vibrancy and security. Orange is the 2nd color from the top and symbolizes energy and wisdom. Yellow is the 3rd color from the top which is supposed to bring about a proper clarity of thought, wisdom, and improve decision-making skills. Green is the 4th and middle color in a rainbow, located in the center of the spectrum. Green symbolizes harmony, balance, growth, and good health. Blue is the 5th color and is known as the color of divinity; it helps to soothe and relax. Indigo is the 6th color (2nd from the bottom) and means infinity. It symbolizes wisdom, intuition, and self-mastery. This color is known to be the bridge between the finite and the infinite. Violet is the lower-most color in a rainbow; it is viewed as the completion and the beginning of energy vibration.

Now flip those colors, red facing red, and that is a DOUBLE RAINBOWS!

Experiencing the phenomenon depends upon where you are standing, where the sun is and where the moisture is just right in the air.

Stop looking at what you have lost, so you can see what you have.

元宵节简介

每年农历的正月十五日,春节刚过,迎来的就是中国的传统节日–元宵节。

  正月是农历的元月,古人称夜为“宵”,所以称正月十五为元宵节。正月十五日是一年中第一个月圆之夜,也是一元复始,大地回春的夜晚,人们对此加以庆祝,也是庆贺新春的延续。元宵节又称为“上元节”。

  按中国民间的传统,在这天上皓月高悬的夜晚,人们要点起彩灯万盏,以示庆贺。出门赏月、燃灯放焰、喜猜灯谜、共吃元宵,合家团聚、同庆佳节,其乐融融。

  元宵节也称灯节,元宵燃灯的风俗起自汉朝,到了唐代,赏灯活动更加兴盛,皇宫里、街道上处处挂灯,还要建立高大的灯轮、灯楼和灯树,唐朝大诗人卢照邻曾在《十五夜观灯》中这样描述元宵节燃灯的盛况“接汉疑星落,依楼似月悬。”

The Fallen Heritage  文化遗产倒了….!

     

 The Pudu Prison was located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and was completed in 1895. There was a 390-metre prison wall, and had been adorned with the world’s longest mural at one point in its history.

According to some sources, in the early 1980s’, Mr Khong Yen Chong, a talented former inmate, used some thousand litres of paint to create an eye-catching and impressive mural of tropical scenes. The mural measured about some 800 odd feet long by 14 feet in height and was also mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records as being the longest mural in the world. He came back as a volunteer to complete this memorable masterpiece, although he was a free man after his release.
