Continued from the last post, after the shoot at Brickfields, we had our lunch at A&W Taman Jaya and then headed to Wat Chetawan Temple at Jalan Gasing, PJ. Wat Chetawan Temple is a Thai temple, it has a very beautiful architectures. The crowds at that time wasn't as packed as at Brickfields.
The main gate.
The main hall (The Bot).
The area where you get to go one round donating coins and ringing the bells.
Here goes Xiang ringing the bell.
Devotees used the golden papers to paint on the Lord Buddha's statue.
The blessing area in the main hall. The monks will so some chanting and then they will sprinkle you with the holy water.
What is this? Blessing for wealth?
The young monk.
The little prayer.
Back to the ringing bells area.
Then I saw a very long line, I walked forward and realized it was for bathing the Buddha statue. I was so excited because I didn't manage to shoot one from Brickfields that morning. Me and Xiang lined up and waiting for our turn too. After that I stayed and shoot for some times until I get the right shots I want.

In that evening, we did some prayers, donations and lots of photographs; although it was very hot and tiring, but it sure is a worth visiting experience. We left there around 5pm, went home to take bath and ready to go Dataran Merdeka for the next shoot - the parade.
