Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple ((佛光山东禅寺), Jenjarom


Mamarazzi have wanted to visit Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple during Chinese New Year for many years already as she heard that the place are decorated very nicely at that time of the year.

Only this year did we managed to pay the temple a visit on Friday, the 8th day of Chinese New Year.

She choose to go on Friday coz it's a working day...should be less people there. 

Hence after my class, we came home and we had a quick lunch. I did some of the homework and around 3.30pm we zoom zoom over to Jenjarom Papa suggested that we go early so that can snap some clear photos

I slept a bit in the car. When we arrive, Mamarazzi woke me up. Hmm....goody. found parking easily. No problem there.


Problem was getting me to smile and look at the camera for the first few photos as I was grumpy. Hot and sleepy.

I have a particular angpau to donate to the temple. Hopefully it would do some good instead of otherwise.


 Mamarazzi didn't notice at first but Donation boxes were plenty around the temple compound.

 It sure did some "good" to me as next to the donation box was and ice cream counter. Mamarazzi bought Papa and me each an ice cream. Super yummy on such a hot day!

 Naughty Papa....he finished off his ice cream and wanted to have a bit of mine. hand over the ice-cream or I shoot you!

Paparazzi oh Paparazzi.....hey.....no shooting!

 Please take note  "DO NOT LITTER. DO NOT SMOKE, MAY BUDDHA BLESS YOU"

 Haiz....now Mamarazzi at work pulak....Faster snap la...hot dei! Or I'll turn into Tiger and bite you ah....ROAR!

 
Hmm...Is it a wishing fountain? saw many people trying to throw coins into the bowls there. "Bodek" Mamarazzi for some coins.

Oppsie....tak kena pulak.....oh well.......


 Maybe I'll try this Bell with better luck. Errr...not for wishing ah...for making a Vow? First step ..Join Palm together..make a vow...strike the bell.....DONNNGGGGGGG!

What vow have I made...ahem ahem.....

 Saw this plant. Naughty Mamarazzi asked me to touch it...Yeowwwww......ticklish....

Next went to Lumbini Garden. Wow...scenic place. There was a pond there with fishes. Plenty of flowers and orchids.

Many paper figures at the garden . In day time they don't look that nice but night time when the lights are lid, they look wonderful


 Mamarazzi saw this "bulat"type of bamboo. So cute. Like shape of a gourd.

 Nowadays whenever Papa and Mamarazzi try to get me to smile for the camera, I would give them Donald Duck smile....look same or not?

 Next we went to another part of the temple. It's fill with decoration of things from under the sea. There were helpers there who selling wishing cards . Many people buy and hang it up the trees.

 Yoohooo! Auntie Shereen....You wanna adopt a monkey? Here is one for you....


 Scenic place.....too bad my Mandarin is only up to reading numbers coz saw beneath the statues which were behind me there were dates....1st to...30th or was it 31st....and each have some writing on it. Mamarazzi was wondering what are those...maybe like horoscope? Telling about the characteristic of people born on those dates?

 Next to it, there was a garden with loads and loads of flowers....

The orchids there were HUGE....some are as big as the size of a child's palm.

Mamarazzi really envy the blooming "Sau Kau" flowers(the blue and pink flowers). As far as she know, it's very hard to get those flowers to bloom.

Really tiring walking around. Lucky for us, mamarazzi was clever. She brought along ice water for us to drink.

Too bad she didn't thought of bringing some food as the food there were quite pricey. 

This plain fried bihun cost RM5. Portion pretty small too. And the box of "nasi Lemak" with vegetarian Char Siew cost RM7. Kinda weird having "nasi lemak" with char siew. 

Lucky for us the Ice Blended drinks at the 1st stall were not that price. RM5 a cup while another stall in the middle was selling ice blended drinks at RM8.80 a cup.

 
By the time we finished "dinner" , it was 7.30pm. The crowd had started to built up . Lights were on. 

 There were performance on the stage by school kids and various groups.

 While performance were going on, volunteers walked around giving empty angpau packets to the audience to be fill up.

Later another volunteer came to me with a big box.

Silly me...I thought she was giving me pressie and I took the box. Then the lady said no no no....it's for me to put in the "filled up" angpau. It's a donation box.

 There was dragon dance by school children too. I got a sweet from him. 

 We didn't wait for the performance to end. Walked around some more.

 Snap some more photos. 

 And many with my "donald Duck " smile. 

 Yup...It's hard to get me looking directly at the camera and smile naturally. Mamarazzi just have to pakai hentam and keep snapping photos and maybe one or two out of the many will turn out okay.

 Like this one 

 And this one...not bad ya?

It's worth a trip there. You still have time to go as it will be on till 16th February 2014. After that, guess you will have to wait for next year then.

  3. Woi, mamarazzi! You look so young, actually how old are you?

    Talking about hot, yes, the weather nowadays very hot, can't live without the aricond.. The aircond is basically on 24 hours a day.. Every morning, wakeup aje, terus on aircond leh.. Behtahan.. Walk a few steps only already berpeluh.. Haha, kam ngam the ice cream counter is nearby, so am sure most people bought ice cream after that, since the weather is so hot..

    Eh, that bamboo looks unique, tak pernah tengok.. Reminds me of Lady Gaga punya layered hair at one time.. kekeke..

  6. yeah, i have also heard a lot about this Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple (佛光山东禅寺) at Jenjarom.. many have been there and said it's a very nice place, and i even have friends who went there for a 3D2N retreat and then came back fresh and possible also enlightened.. next time Mamarazzi may want to ditch Small Kucing with Paparazzi and go there for a retreat, but then ah, that time no more reading books until 4am already okay?? probably you will be sleeping around 9pm and wake up at 5pm, haha~~

  7. eih, pandai Mamarazzi lah you chose the right time to go there.. reach there late afternoon and stay until night time, so that you can see the place both daytime and night with all the lights lit up, smart!! but then lesson learned, better bring your own makan if you want to stay a bit longer there.. RM5 can buy two packets of big portion fried beehoon outside lah, and if cook yourself sure enough for one whole family, haha.. and nasi lemak with char siew at RM7, more expensive than those on AA or not?? errr, got lah, the Chinese style nasi lemak comes with all sorts of oink-oink thing mah~~ :D

  10. aiyoh, why Mamarazzi just showed her hands with the nice orchids?? should have show her face with the flowers, because her pretty face sure more beautiful and smaller than those flowers lah.. i can only think of one thing to describe that, which is "yan bei fa kiew mei" (the person is more beautiful than the flowers).. or maybe she did, but simpan simpan that photo for Paparazzi to view only, hehe!! :p
