Bogged down and hunted by failure and stress in his relationship and career, Taiwanese-based Singaporean song writer and singer, Huang Yida, sought refuge as a novice Buddhist monk in Chiangmai. He says that the experience of the monkhood gave him more wisdom in life, as he learned to forgive those who have hurt him and strived on to become a better son to his parents.
A cheeky fact though. Huang once slipped off to sleep during one of long chanting sessions with an old Ajahn.
A food for thought also for many of the youths here to consider going on a novice monkhood program someday.
P.S. His songs damn emo siol.
