October 24 is the United Nations Day.
We celebrate it every year and 2015 is rather special as the UN reaches 70 years of continued works for a stronger institution and eventually, a better world.
|happy 70th anniversary..|
To commemorate this special event, #UNBlue has been lit in many corners of the world, beautiful engulfing hundreds of landmarks across the globe.
Including in Borobudur temple, Indonesia.

As I am here, we take our time to visit the UN headquarters that day and capture the moment when #UNBlue shines regally in that building.

Together with Bo, I took the liberty to take pictures in the UN Headquarters, where I spend most of my time participating in various global discourses and negotiations, particularly in the field of human rights.
|happy birthday UN..|
|cheers from me and Bo :)|

And we even have the Empire State Building lit in Blue, as we saw it from Long Island City.

Amidst the many achievements of this intergovernmental organizations, many have thought that the UN hasn't done enough to address so many ongoing issues and conflicts across the globe.
It might be true, to some extent, to certain cases.
But can you imagine if the UN doesn't exist?
So keep the hopes soar high.
For a stronger UN.And a better world.
