Friendly Strangers

I was at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple (old Seafield Estate) this evening and met some friendly faces there. This photo shows the florist whom I bought some chrysanthemums from. I asked her permission to take her photos and she gladly agreed. A few of her friends came forward too and we had fun taking some photos at the temple!

Malaysians are truly friendly people! Even though we have just met, but everyone warms up to each other after a few exchange of words! I am glad to have met these friendly strangers this evening! They made me feel so welcomed!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
