Vietnam Monk



During my kids last visit to Saigon in Vietnam, they have seen a number of things, places and foods that are totally new to them. But what fascinates them most is the Vietnam Monk as seen on the photos above. My daughter Mika didn't let pass off the opportunity to have a shot with some of the Monks that we have seen roaming around inside the Dam Sen theme park. She said, her visit to Saigon wouldn't be complete if she won't get any souvenir picture with them. The funny part was, she was asking me to approach the Monk for the souvenir picture as she can't speak in Vietnamese language. I told her to just give it a try. There's no need to talk much. Action will speak louder than words. I let her speak to the monk and voila! Success! There's she goes with the souvenir pics. (lol)

For educational purposes, according to Wikipedia, A monk (from Greek: μοναχός, monachos, "single, solitary"[1]) is a person who practices religious asceticism, living either alone or with any number of other monks, while always maintaining some degree of physical separation from those not sharing the same purpose. The concept is ancient and can be seen in many religions and in philosophy.

Just sharing!

  4. wow, that's a great souvenir! :)ako walang picture sa monk but i've taken lots of it from afar (except nung umattend kmi wedding) kasi si K laging sinasabi na bawal and they are not allowed to be near with other people especially girls and i heard also someone saying na bawal daw malakad sa likod nila on their shadow, malas daw! :) anyway, visiting you from Thursday Brownies, hope you can check my entry! have a great day! :)

  5. I'm so shy when asking someone to pose with me, ahaha. I just noticed the different colors and make of their robes, so they must be practicing different beliefs too.

    Thanks for linking up to Thursday Brownies. :) - Mirage
