Year Of Dog 2018 @ Kuan Yin Temple, Klang

Kong Hei Fatt Choy!!!
Woof woof wooF!!! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ

I did something record-breaking today. I visited my favorite local Kuan Yin Temple (known as Kuan Yin Teng in Hokkien) on 1st day of CNY, which is really really rare! Hahaha Even after countless of visits, I always find this temple extremely beautiful. Tucked at the corner of a busy and famous roundabout in Klang town, Kuan Yin Teng is the place to find peace and calmness. So glad I have this piece of treasure in my hometown. In fact, in just under 1km radius, there are 1 mosque, 1 surau, 2 Indian temples and 2 churches as well. God, I love my town!

I took my DSLR with me, knowing I will always find many things that charm me there. Allow me to share my snaps with you all.

Year Of Rooster 2017 @ Kuan Yin Temple, Klang

Happy Chinese kok kok kok New Year!

I’m not too late in wishing you all, right? Fact is I didn’t have CNY mood a week ago. But today, I’m super excited. Maybe because we’re celebrating Jade Emperor’s birthday midnight tonight and I will get to eat tonnes of angku kueh. Hehe

I visited the century old Kuan Yin temple in Klang today. Here are some photos which I took at the temple:

Incense sticks or joss sticks. When you have extra stick(s), put it here. I never understand why the temple never provide the exact number of sticks. There’s always extra one or two. Hmm…

An Afternoon Of Seafood, Quaint Village & Sea At Tanjung Sepat

I spent this year’s Labor’s day holiday at Tanjung Sepat. This impromptu trip was decided on the day itself after coming back from my maiden gym workout. First stop was at Asam Batu Laut Restaurant for late lunch. I’ve been to this eatery back in 2013 and found the seafood to be fresh and delicious. So we came back for more!

Revisited: Kuan Yin Temple, Setapak

I visited Kuan Yin Temple at Setapak in KL with my family on 3rd day of Chinese New Year this year. This time my grandma tagged along. *happy* I also had my DSLR with me. I snapped some photos of the temple surrounding while my mom and grandma were busy talking with the monk. Check ’em out below. I also did a photography session on this temple three years ago. Feel free to check it out here.

Sekinchan 2014

During the last weekend of November, I finally grab my chance to visit the fame paddy fields in Sekinchan which I heard so much about. It certainly didn’t disappoint and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax or for photography purpose. The weather forecast said it was going to rain in mid morning but we were presented with a stubborn sun until late evening where it began to shower. It was so warm that I came back with tanned arms as souvenir from my good times at Sekinchan.

After having our brunch at a coffee shop in Sekinchan, we proceed to the paddy field.
