How to Bow Figurines

I saw these interesting figurines when I was at a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur. It depict the art of bowing.  In many Asian countries, bowing is a sign of respect that you give to someone important or to the elders.  The figurines in the photographs illustrate the Asian bow.  But in real life, there is no need to tip or bend yourself so much to lower your body. Also you must make sure there is enough space between the 2 persons if that person needs to bow back; otherwise they will both get a bump on their heads.

But nowadays, it seems that not many people have the habit to bow. Perhaps the younger generation feels that there is no need to do so. Respect can also be given in other forms like a warm smile and a handshake.

I enjoy looking at interesting figurines, work of arts or anything that seems interesting. That is why is it important to bring a camera along whenever possible. I seen many people taking photos with their mobile phones with built in cameras when they are on holidays. Personally, I still prefer to take photos with a camera, as it gives me the exact shots and flexibility that I need.

In the year 2011, I will hope to put up more photos and blogs in my site. I saw that traffic stats in this new site is picking up. I would liked to express my sincere thanks for those visiting this site.
