I don’t remember the last time I went to any temple two days in the roll. Actually, I wasn’t plan on attending the new year celebration at Lao/Khmer/Thai temple. My cousin called on last minute and wants to meet up for lunch. Since, I can’t turn down free lunch, so I went:-). Some of you probably be asking why I called it Lao/Khmer/Thai Temple? Well, majority of the monks are from Thailand and few Cambodian/Lao monks living at this temple. So, you’ll see mixed groups of people from those regions as a regular followers.
As I approach the entrance gate to the temple, the sounds of Johnny Olsen is blasting through the air wave. Some of you probably don’t even know who he is. I believe he came out with few CD’s in Lao and Thai.
Shortly after the parade, I left the temple because I have to mow my lawn. Another male singer from Laos will be joining Johnny to entertain the crowds. I didn’t get a chance to go back later on that night.
