asked my photographer amidst the bustle and hustle of Hualamphong Train Station. My response was nothing but a silent smile.

The train arrived in Ratchaburi shortly after nine. We were collected into a large pickup trucks by old friends in the area. Then off we went to Suan phueng where Little Candle 2010 awaits. This installment of

the district’s annual candle festival is the largest by far. “We have about 12,000 candles prepared,” said P Aey the owner of Baan Hom Tien. Visitors can enjoy live music while indulging in fine food and drinks from select places, with little chairs all around. I picked my perfect spot and waited for darkness to come.

As twilight dwindles, the sky turned dark blue and more people joined the revelry. The yellowish orange hue of candlelight began to glitter across the hill, braving the occasuibak winter breezes. I did not see my photographer again until well after eight. The young man walked up to me and gave his approval of the festivity, “Do they have this every year?” I told him I could not be too sure about next year as a lot of preparation has to go into this. “It would be a shame if we missed this…,” remarked him just when I was captivated by the beauty of the sight before me.
