开始。。。at the beginning...

an e-"Coffee-table" book... of a country where people hardly drink coffee...
~ thanks to Passang Tshering, for this interesting "starter" line ~

想了一下,还是把这张“到此一游”的照片作为开场照。
虽然没有游遍整个不丹;但,也走了不少的路,到了不少的角落。
这双踏在雪地的鞋子,天天跟着我,陪着我。。。从新加坡,到不丹。
它,很耐。它,也很保暖。离开时,没把它带走。
当然,还有那小小的照相机,把不少的美好回忆一一地拍了下来。
它,把不丹的人情给带了回来。
它,把罕见的风俗给纪录了下来。
让我回头再看。。。不妄此行也!
回来后,曾梦想,把这张张漂亮的照片,出版成一本小书,作一本游记。
一,是没时间去整理那些照片。
二,也没有时间去查看需要做些什么去实现。
终于,今年挤出了些许时间,把这些照片刊登出来了。
借此,和大家分享这个美丽的国家。

After some thought, decided to pick this photo for the 'cover' of this digital album.
I took this photo when I was at Yotong-la, on my way back after visiting Bumthang in March 2005. The snow came as a surprise... we did not expect that! Of course, I did not give it a miss... and had some fun. And yes, and took this photo :D
In fact, although I did not go round the country, I visited quite a fair bit of places - to its central and all the way to the south, to the Phuentsholing-Jaigon border.
Yes, I took lots of photos, too. Taking as many chances as possible, to capture the beauty of the country, the warmth of the people, the culture and its history. I never get tired going through these photos... Indeed, each time I see them, I see something new... I recall something beautiful.
When I first returned to Singapore, I dreamt of publishing the photos into a coffee book. However, did not find time to materialise it.
This year, took sometime to re-organise these photos and decided to put them up. Have added a couple of chinese characters to describe it - my interpretation and my thoughts and emotions when looking at them.
The key is... to share the beautiful country with all...
and dedicate this to my friends and students in the Bhutan.
