First gleam of dawn

Desaru, Johor, Malaysia

The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.

Proverbs 4:18 (NLT)


Strolling along Vltava River

The outdoor never felt as attractive as it was during the times when I had to stay either in my room or in the library studying. I’ve always thought the national library has a really strategic location, for me personally, because it’s situated right next to the famous Charles’ Bridge, and the Prague castle is clearly visible on the other side of the river! It has always been a very refreshing sight to see this beautiful scenery when I step out of the library after a long day with books. Needless to say, a good walk along the tranquil river was a good way to start a day before I dived into the world of revision!

The guy looking for clams (Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far)

The morning sun had just emerged from behind the thick grey clouds. I was sitting by the river when I saw an old guy, possibly 50 or 60 years old, went down to the river bank and started digging among the mud and stones, looking for clams (or oysters?). I heard  there used to be more people in this town doing this along the river. It seems to be a slow job, I wonder how long would it take to get enough for a dish of the seafood and how much he gains each time he goes down? I hope that his gain was good that day.

At the far end in the background is the mosque of Sultan Ibrahim (Masjid Sultan Ibrahim).
