Just got back from an evening at Wat Ku Tao, a Shan (Thai Yai -Burmese) Temple located near Chang Puak Rd. I was invited to go with a friend, Wit, to see the celebration for Shan New Years. It began on Dec 6th and this was the last evening (8th). Wow
I tried to get some shots but my camera will not take good photos in low light â€“ Damn â€“ I am going to get a new one after the Christmas holidays â€“ I hope the prices will drop by then. In any event here are a few of the shots I did manage to get.
First was Wit, in his traditional Shan dress (rather formal): Saifah was there in great traditional Burmese dress but I could not get any shots of his outfit â€“ he was going on stage and I missed my chance.
Sorry for the bad quality but you can still see the outfit â€“ the place was packed, Iâ€™s say over 3-4000 there. Great entertainment, many young men, singing, food, boys, dancing, and did I mention â€“ boys.
I did get shots of some of the clothes for the ladies being sold there:
Again I am sorry for the terrible quality of the images â€“ next time. I see that Peter has posted some good shots on his site. â€“ Radchada
