Kek Lok Si Temple
Penang trip day 2 starts off with awesome breakfast!!! Day 2 is the day I planned for Kek Lok Si Temple visit and then to Penang Hill because they're just about a few streets away though you will need the bus to take you there. Can't walk. Hehe =P
Today we're taking bus number 201 or 203 or 204 to Kek Lok Si Temple. Bus ride was again RM2. Kek Lok Si Temple is located at Air Itam which is to the south of Penang.
YES! The day we're gonna walk up the temple right to the new bronze Guan Yin statue. And our journey begins =)
Hello from turtle pond at Kek Lok Si Temple! And then we proceed to climb the stairs.
'human-dictionary' with me right now. He's busy elsewhere so yeah, you guys gotta bear with my needless explanation.
And blame the Nikonian who doesn't know how to handle a Canon DSLR =P
"回头是岸" but I can't seem to find the way =( Failed! So sad weh! I wanna go back and explore more.
Hello from Kek Lok Si Temple! 9 years ago I was at this very exact same spot for a solo photo. 9 years later I'm here with my heart =)
RM8 for round trip per person. Actually you can drive up, I just don't know how. Hee~
RAWR with red ribbon! =P
It is said that at 1988 there was a huge flood at Penang and one of the arm of this Guan Yin statue actually broke. People had the beliefs that the arm broke just to save the people of Penang. Well, it's a beliefs so let's just pass it on =) Now the old statue is left at a side with only the top part remaining. I think the old one's more beautiful. Looks more pure.
Hello from the bronze statue of Guan Yin! We finally made it to the top! Awesome feeling! =D Hmm....I wonder if those doors below the statue will ever be opened to public. And then again, what's inside? =P
*slurps* I'm making everyone drool at this hour. Wahahaha! Right. I'm making myself drool as well =.= Namely, curry mee with frozen pork blood and chicken rice. That's what I call food from heaven! Love the frozen pork blood!
Next up, we took the bus and went to Penang Hill. Hey wait up! Don't leave my page just like that. Drop some comment and do come back for more posts =) Chao!
