Four Face Buddha Destroyed....

Just heard the news that the famous four face buddha in Bangkok was destroyed. Click on this link. Below is some photos that I took of it last month.


Some says that this is a bad omen; a sign of some bad things is about to happen to Thailand and its people. I believe the demonstration that has been on going will gather some speed this weekend as the election is 2 weeks away. I hope it will end in peace.
