I went with Jaeb to Wat Chalong Phuket Thailand for her to receive blessing . Asanha Bucha is one of the most important Buddhist days.

Asanha Bucha in ThailandThai:อาสาฬหบูชา) is a TheravadaBuddhist festival which typically takes place in July, on the full moon of the eighth lunar month. It is celebrated in CambodiaThailandSri LankaLaosMyanmar and in countries with Theravada Buddhist populations. Asalha Puja, also known as Dhamma Day, is one of Theravada Buddhism’s most important festivals, celebrating as it does the Buddha’s first sermon in which he set out to his five former associates the doctrine that had come to him following his enlightenment. This first pivotal sermon, often referred to as “setting into motion the wheel of dhamma,” is the teaching which is encapsulated for Buddhists in the four noble truths: there is suffering (dukkha); suffering is caused by craving (tanha); there is a state (nibbana) beyond suffering and craving; and finally, the way to nirvana is via the eightfold path. All the various schools and traditions of Buddhism revolve around the central doctrine of the four noble truths

The day is observed by donating offerings to temples and listening to sermons

Looking forward to life in 2016 and reflection of life past 2015

This is about my own personal life and of my Blog Life SE Asia Magazine.  I will cover just a little of the magazine first. It has certainly been an important part of my life in 2015 but not the most important part.

Life Se Asia Magazine 2015

Magazine is just a little older than a year.  My goal was ambitious as trying to cover all of SE Asia.  My primary core value was to have quality reliable articles/post with photos to tell the story!  We have over 35,000 visitors from 148 countries I think ok for  small magazine and goal has been quality not numbers.  Now have 4 companies that have accepted us as affiliates and created a YouTube channel .  We started off with almost 10 bloggers all voluntary.  Keeping them has been the hardest part.  Some go off on their own (which is good) some lose interest.  I hope one day to generate income, more to attract and keep bloggers than in my own pocket.
