Lanterns

Yellow and red lanterns against the blue of a building at the Kek Lok Si temple in Penang, Malaysia.

I was in Malaysia last year on a business trip. Luckily I had the opportunity to do some sight seeing and my co-worker Lai was good enough to take me around.

The architecture and colors of this Buddhist temple are amazing. I would love to return and see the place when all the lanterns are light.
