The magnificent Guang Yin Statue

There we go celebrating the Chinese New Year (CNY), and here we are today on the last day of CNY... and yes, it has been the 15th day of CNY (Aka Chap Goh Meh). I have rested myself for the last few days, accompany LB to do what we planned and wanna do for quite sometimes, to go, pray and look at the Kek Lok Si temple during the 12th day of chinese New Year. :) (Specially when it's light is fully turn on - and what 小慧 said that it is like a "DisneyLand" to her.) Seriously I thought that he is joking until I went there this year. (It is the 1st time I have been there during CNY) :"P Where you could see that the light is dully lighted up and the new "Guan Ying" building has been fully built... Everything is just marvelous. :") - And I am glad that I am there this year.

More photos after the jump...

So, I posted an additional one here... :"P - With her well prepared.

Anyway, we didn't manage to went there on the time that we planned, pretty much need to handle and close some working tasks on hand (plus the traffic jam on the road) and in the end, I didn't manage to reach the temple on the right time. Anyway, is alright... that's not really the most important thing. Just wanna relax ourself for the last few days of CNY. And I didn't force myself to shoot what or which type of photos, just go with the flow and felt the crowd there. :")

We done some praying, go for a small walk, and done some small photoshoot. :") (yes nothing major that day, the wind is strong so strong and I bet everything setup will flew away). So we just go around Kek Lok Si, and finally rested our self at the edge and feel the breeze of the wind... :") It is just nice... it has been a while I didn't get myself out from the house, doing nothing other than feeling the breeze. :) (I think I should do more of that in the future).

Another shoot here. - Seems like I have shoot a lot of profile shoot for Guang Ying:")

Anyway, the weekend if pack, thanks to Lean for accompanying us for the whole darn day. (Although he got a date with his washing machine), but pretty much, he dished the date and accompanying me and LB to settle what we need to settle at the main land. Anyway, I am glad that everything is completed now. :") Just hope that the rest will be smooth as we expected. :")

  4. Thanks. I think you should go there and let the kids see the "Disneyland" :") When it is lighted up, it is pretty awesome. Yeah the traffic is kinda scary. Do go earlier may be around 5/6pm to beat the traffic and come down around 7pm. :")

  7. I have been so many places, but I nvr see such beautiful temple in the night, proud to be penangite. The tourism should promote this lot to outside of the country...

  8. Yupe I think so as well. I think it is a great temple and it is just located so close to us. Penang govn should use it as one of the main tourist attraction for your country. :"D
