The sis & I, didn't really look forward to this trip initially.
1st Spot: 四海龙王大伯公庙
Surprisingly, there were lots of people. Unexpected.
We were suppose to rinse our hands with this delicate miniature fountain before entering the temple.
Beside the miniature fountain, there's a statue of 貔貅王 (King of Pi Xiu). The temple keeper is really thoughtful. They actually provides the description beside the statue & also have the emcee to do the elaboration.
There's lots of Goddess Statues in this temple. A circle though small, yet is complete.
Had our little model demo on making wish to Laughing Buddha. *grin*
#1: u gotta have a very sincere face. *lol*
#2: touch on Laughing Buddha's tummy.
#3: ring the bell & make a wish.
龙泉井 LongQuan Well
Well water can be used for to wash the car plate, house plate & shower.
太岁府 Jupiter House
Believe if you go through the altar, you will get to change your fate.
善财童子 Zenzai boyZenzai boy is that accompanied on both sides of the Bodhisattva.
It is said that before, you will see a white alligator at Batu Pahat Riverside.
According to the legend, whoever sees the white alligator, will get wealthy in life and goes up the ladder in your career. Therefore, feel free to touch this white alligator that will bring us good luck.
Beside the lake, there's a Match Maker 月老 (Chinese Cupid). A lot of people come here to pray for their love/relationship. They will either tie the knot with the red string or lock the "love lock" at the Valentine's Bridge & throw the key into the river as a sign of in love forever.
Other scenes in the temple...
A great venue to do BBQ party at night. During day time, you may do your fishing over here or strolling.
3rd Spot: 石文丁Segenting - the Fish Village
The final destination & also what we're looking forward for the entire trip--摸鱼 (touch the fish).
A lot people coming to the temple for fortune & blessings for the beloved. During holidays or weekend, you will see busloads of tourists visiting to this temple. Most of them are here to strike their luck.
You can see there was a lot people jostling for the pool just to get near the fishes.
But what so special about the fishes & what kind of fishes are they?!
See! So many people desperate about it! I can't even get myself in! Just bcoz the people believe that once you touch on the fish, you will be able to strike your TOTO or 4D or any gambling stuff.... =.=||
Well, they are the Lake Monster - Arapaimas. Yes, lake monster not any giant coil fishes. *lol*
They are South American tropical freshwater fish and also a living fossil of the largest freshwater fish in the world. They can grow up to 5m long.
Sorry that I have no guts to touch the Arapaimas. They looked rather scary to me though they kept on swim near to me. I've only managed to take a picture of these desperate people pounding on them.
There is also an altar of the Dragon King facing to the Straits of Malacca. They named it as Crystal Palace. Usually are the fishermen here to pray before they set their sail out for fishing.
Frankly speaking, I find this trip benefited me a lot. I'd never thought that it could be so interesting till I had experienced it. It's worth to tag along your family to pay a visit.
