Thean Hou Temple

I always come late.
There are lot of activities organised during Chinese New Year.
I miss all the activities such as Lion dancing, Traditional dancing, famous singers and etc.
Maybe, i am not the "kiasu" man and always come late - just visit this place last Saturday.
I am not "kiasu" but i really kiasi. (scare die).

I saw a lot of new couples come over here for their marriage registration.
Feel really happy for them.

The Thean Hou Temple (Chinese: 天后宫) officially opened in 1989.
This temple built by the Hainanesee community KL is dedicated to Goddess Tian Hou (The Heavenly Mother).
Its grand architecture has made it a popular tourist destination.
18 statues.
A lot of Tanglung.
I feel want to make MTV here sing CNY songs. 
Don't forget to buy my album.
Today is Chinese New Year again...
Light of Life.
This syncretic temple with elements of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism is a grandiose structure.
It represents a successful combination of modern architectural techniques and authentic traditional design featuring imposing pillars, spectacular roofs, ornate carvings and intricate embellishments.
There is a tortoise pool behind the temple.
More than 100 tortoises i guess.
"Come to visit me... i feel lonely here"
Vanessa: "I wish my mummy can spend more time with me - Don't marry to company"

I will end my post here...

Vanessa: "WAIT... I still have something i wish"

Vanessa: "I wish this tiger brings my family and all blogger lots of prosperity & good health!"
"Daddy, you can end it now and go to sleep"

Annie Q: I think it is a place where everyone can go. last weeks, i saw a lot of people come from iran, oman, and etc. they come as well. i guess they are muslim. for me, i am open minded. i like to visit some of the church and mosque as well to understand more about them.
