Day 2 Reflection—Grace Tan Soo Woon

I learnt about the "Rocket Houses" which are very interesting in structure and cannot be found in Singapore. Besides that, the shops outside the temple which sell birds also left an impression as I have never seen such cages of birds before, yet alone know about its purpose—to allow people to set the birds free as a form of fulfilling a requirement for the religion. I also learnt that some buildings were influenced by the people who took over Vietnam in the past and some of the buildings still remain even now.
