Ngong Ping 360 and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue

Finally, the half day compulsory city tour was over. We headed to Ngong Ping 360 to ride and experience the famous cable car. Unfortunately,  cable car ride was under maintenance that day so we had no choice but to ride the bus.

Framed against its tranquil backdrop of the North Lantau Country Park. The Tian Tan Buddha Statue possesses a quiet power that you can't help but admire.

Seated atop 268 steps outdoor, the Tian Tan Buddha Statue is the world's largest bronze Buddha statue. Located on the Ngong Ping Plateau, Lantau Island, this majestic statue is adjacent to Ngong Ping 360's Ngong Ping Village and the Po Lin Monastery.

Tian Tan casts his serene gaze towards the North, making this statue unique amongst its peers because most Buddha statues face South. The statue is positioned on a lotus throne, surrounded by eight smaller bronze statues representative of the gods, or immortals. 

Our DIY sidetrip to The Tian Tan Buddha Statue provided us an ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. I guess Marilyn Monroe's best quotes ""I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful." is right.  Somehow, although I am not Buddhist, its serene presence is a gest for my soul.

Labeling Posts

Since I have decided to start cooking my own recipes and the recipes I have gathered and stored for quite a long time I am planning to put labels to my upcoming posts just like other bloggers do on their blog sites. Some bloggers labeled their posts depending on what kind of ingredients they have used like chicken, pork, beef, lamb, veggies, etc. Some labeled it breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. I saw website using interesting labels like Asian, American, European, African, etc. Another website use, rice, bread, noodles, pasta, etc. I want mine unique and useful.I'm not really sure if labeling is important on my website but I think it will help my readers look for the posts or recipes that I'll be posting soon. I hope labeling is like barcode labels that is easy to put and somehow track my posts. I think what I need is a software that would label my articles and pictures as my intellectual property so that no one could just copy the entry and stole the photos. I searched the world wide web there are several sites offering that kind of label for a fee and its kinda expensive, I couldnt afford it. I'll do the labels manually, I decided, lol!
