I woke up at 04h45 this morning before the alarm clock. It was still pitch dark outside. Putting on my jacket and shoes, I waited to see if K would wake up. My plan was to go outside and meet the monks who would come down from the mountain to receive breakfast food from the town folks and tourists at around 06h15.
As fate would have it, I did meet them and gave away the food that I had purchased from the street hawkers (sticky rice contained in a straw container, a basket of baby bananas, and a basket of local food wrapped in lotus leaves).
Anyway, it was quite an experience as the "givers/donors" must either kneeled or sit on a mat with their shoes off and they must not touch neither the monks, their robes, or the basket they were holding.
My food ran out after the abt the 15th monk and there must be another 15 behind him. Anyway, there were other donors who had purchased more food and I was glad those monks at the back of the line would not have to starve !!!
All Ni Tall Fat !!
