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.

Kuan Yin Temple, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur

Vivekananda Ashrama @ Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur

I have 2 wishes whenever I step into Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur; to explore the colorful valley of Little India and to stand right in front of the Vivekananda statue located at Jalan Tun Sambanthan. I remember reading about Vivekananda School in history book during schooling therefore the name Vivekananda has always fascinated me.

On this particular evening in June, I decided to have 1 1/4 of my wishes realized. Armed with a 50mm lens (which is a bad choice actually), I finally stepped in front of Vivekananda Ashrama. I guess passerby must have think I’m a nutcase. Why is this lady taking photos of an old building? Ahh just ignore them. πŸ™‚

That’s 107 years old.
