the greatest joy come from the least expectation.
i wasn't really expecting anything. so it was a bit embarrassing to come up and accept an award specially when i was wearing an old red polo with a tear along the shoulder. must have reinforced the grungy artiste look. the more interesting news is that my entry is totally last minute as it was just an invitation to watch the dress rehearsal for Siddharta in the temple grounds. the fates must have had a hand in the whole affair as it was purely luck that i saw the shrine on my way out.
like a moth, i got drawn to the golden glow of the shrine.
