CNY is just around the corner, exactly one month from today. Before year 2013 over, before I forgotten, FGS Dong Zen Temple, CNY Lantern & Floral Festival 2013 was held from 8-24 February 2013. It was my sixth visit and it’s still a favorite place during CNY.
Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zhen Temple
15 Feb 2013 | CNY Lantern & Floral Fest 2013
Opening hours are from 10.30am to 10.00pm. Admission and parking on officially designated areas are both FREE.
As usual, peoples flocked this place during CNY and make it very crowded. I’ve much difficulties in taking photo when people had blocked some nice view. Suggest to come during weekday to avoid super massive weekend crowd.
For me, the most suitable time is between 5.30pm to 8.30pm when I could have before & after the light was turned on, rather than going on day & night separately.
This year was rather different. There were 3D art displays near the side entrance. Also overall, it’s worth a visit due to not many get recycle at different location, if you know my meaning of recycling (reuse the same mascot in different place).
Melaka Wonderland had been around since 2010 and one of the attraction point in Melaka. Located at Ayer Keroh, Melaka, it’s a complete water park experience for everyone. Again, I was here for fun … seeking for high-speed water slides!
Melaka Wonderland @ Ayer Keroh
Compare to the one I went in Alor Gajah, A Famosa Water World, this water park is offering a slightly different style, you can differentiate it. Some more, it’s in famous area, Ayer Keroh, Melaka.
I hardly miss any new attraction found in Melaka, at least for now, I’m quite obsessed with it. Water dipping isn’t what I’m looking forward. I was here because of two reasons, this is considering a new/latest park in town and I love do sliding activities.
Let’s explore what’s offering and fun in the park … from my series of pictures.
Amazing Race 2012, an event held by GTO of Standard Chartered Bank. Without any experience prior joining this event, apart from Treasure Hunt, I was left amazed when it comes.
Langkawi Lagoon Resort | Amazing Race 2012
At first thought, Amazing Race was all about the jungle or highway race. It was wrong. It’s a challenges/tasks to be completed prior each destination stated in CLUE paper. Destination this year is Langkawi and we travel all the way from KL to Langkawi in 4 hours at least.
A team formed by 3 members with me as driver. Started from KL in the early morning and ended at Langkawi Lagoon Resort where all task clues were given. Skipping any tasks will cause stuck and disqualified.
Tasks only revealed when we reach designated place. We required traveling one place to another, hence car transportation is required.
This event run 2D1N over the weekend, hence we’d our short holiday cum challenges. It was too fun to miss it!
In a small town from 20km north-east of Ipoh, there’s a home to the country’s only Tibetan temple named Persatuan Enlightened Heart Buddhist. Because of non-promote for tourism, it’s relatively unknown except Ipoh peoples.
Located by using my GPS, I hardly know about this place. The signboard is small and the road leading to the temple is narrow. Never thought about finding this place without proper direction.
Without needing to travel to Tibet, one can have a visit to Malaysia of Tibetan temple. The temple was built in 1975. The first thing I saw was a giant Buddha statue on the hill at the back. That’s correct my assumption the road leading is correct.
Teluk Intan, the third largest town in Perak, is booming. The leaning clock tower in Teluk Intan is one of the town’s many tourist attractions. While doing my 3D2N Ipoh trip recently, I decided to drop by to check-it out.
Teluk Intan, The Leaning Tower
Located and stand still in the middle of the city, this old architecture sit in the heart of Teluk Intan town. Built in 1892 and since then tilted due to underground stream on the site.
During the daytime, one can walk into the building, however, my visits doesn’t allow due to some maintenance carry on.
This pagoda-shaped tower was originally used to house a water tank supplied to the town during emergency. Now the functionality that can be observed is just a clock tower and perhaps some stories and museum-alike artifacts inside this tower.
