mylo....Where are you? Try and guess my latest trip :) Okay...here are some clues:

  1. Gigantic brass paintings
  2. Magnificent collection of Buddha relics
  3. All about Supreme Buddha (Sammāsambuddha)
  4. Look at the picture above

I'll be releasing two full length articles. So, guess, guess & guess. Reminds me of the Taiwanese game show 我猜我猜我猜猜猜 LOL!

ANSWER:
