The 'centipede' temple

One fine Sunday, we decided to pay this Chinese Temple a visit.


The chinese wording (Wu Gong Shan) on the rock literally translated as 'The Mount Centipede'. It was believed that this area have various species of centipedes and if you spoted one, you will be showered with good fortune. I'm not too sure of the history but if you are interested, you may read a write up on this temple over here.



Beautiful Goddess of Mercy Kuan Yin statue.



And the kids were overjoyed when they saw this statue - The Monkey God aka. Sun Wukong. YX quickly ran over and asked me to take a photo of him.



Besides that, YX loves the pig too - Zu Bajie.



Not forgetting the 'sifu' (Tang monk) and the white horse. Realised someone is missing ? Yea...YX does not like that 'uncle' , the 3rd apprentice of Tang Monk, thus, did not ask for a photo with him.




But the most enjoyable of all is feeding the fishes ! As part of donation, the fish food is selling at RM1 per pack. Hubby bought 2 packs to avoid both kids fighting for it.



Beautiful Koi pond.
They enjoyed feeding the fishes till refused to leave when all the fish food were used up.
YX pour bits by bits to feed the fishes......


....while baby XJ pick up one by one to feed. Hubby even joked that we may have to overnight at the temple if Baby continues to feed the fishes like that.
.
No. We did not spot any centipede !

  15. The kids really enjoyed feeding the koi fish. It's better that bb XJ picked the food 1 by 1, than pouring the whole pkt at 1 go, right? :)
