Buddha's Birthday

Today we went to the Buddhist temple in Tamarac to celebrate's Buddha's birthday among with many Asian people and some other races who practice Buddhism. Buddhism philosophy is very interesting. Something I want to learn.

The mayor of Tamarac's presenting the plaque of appreciation to the monk leader of that temple. One of Buddha's philosophy: Do Good Deeds, Speak Good Words, Think Good Thoughts.

My dear husband with the incense altar and people like japanese, taiwanese, thailander, singaporean, chinese, viatnamese, korean, and the like are there for the celebration. Part of the ritual is to eat vegetarian food. There are merchants selling different type of foods from different Asian countries.

Left photo: Taiwan food- noodle soup with vegetables and tofu. Right photo: Vietnamese food-  fresh noodle rolls. All are tastes good.

Japanese food. A sweet sticky rice covered with egg or soy wrapper (not sure).

Thai's Tea (made from herbal tea and soy milk). Unsweetened. Surprisingly delicious.
