These pictures were taken by Mr. Danny Wong. Recently Mr. & Mrs. Wong, two point therapist were among our group of 16 people for a customised tour of central plain of China (Henan, Luoyang, Xian), birth place of Chinese civilization. The professional photographer had been commissioned to take pictures of Queen Elizabeth when she visited Malaysia.
Peony festival opened in Luoyang in April every year. It’s a very crowded affair. It was very annoying to see visitors went through the fence to take pictures among those delicate flowers. How could flowers lovers did such a destructive act was beyond imagination! Few days later, there was a big rain, and what a pity for people who came all the way to Luoyang to appreciate them.
