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.

A pair of mandarin orange trees at the temple entrance. Don’t be wowed by the large oranges. They don’t belong to the trees. Haha

Water lily bud. So serene.

Purple flowers. Lovely!

Jumbo size lotus-shaped candle.

Lanterns with messages.

Real cherry blossom in a vase.

There are names on this pillar with small yellow bulbs to light ones path. In Hokkien, it’s called thiam kerng. That’s the best I could explain it.

The same pillar but with bokeh.

Cherry blossom tree with grandma in bokeh… praying.

Chinese paper cut. Beautiful!

A close-up view of the pillar with names.

Mandarin orange from real tree.

Gold ornaments.

The main praying area surrounded by four of those pillars with names. One of the pillars not in view.

Grandfather clock.

Do you know what happened the next day? My dad struck lottery. πŸ™‚ Not much but enough for a few meals. Happy Chinese New Year!
