Kek Lok Si

So, last Wednesday night, me and my coursemates went to Kek Lok Si for some night viewings of the lighting the temple is famous for during Chinese New Year. It's my first visit even almost two years studying in Penang. It's was rather late when we began our journey - 9++pm - so, when we reached the destination, it's was almost 10pm. We just managed to tour a small part of the temple. Those that required climbing such as the pagoda and the Guan Yin statue, we didn't get to go. So, we'll be going tonight again (I think so) just for the purpose of visiting the pagoda and the bronze Guan Yin statue.

While still on the car...

I love the lanterns there...
I'm not sure what is their names...
Pagoda
Like I said, I like the lantern...
