Wesak Day Celebration
We woke up slightly early last Friday. After getting ready, daddy drove us to the Kuan Yin temple in Jalan Bukit Bintang for prayer. It was already filled with people when we arrived for the 11am prayers.
Flowers and lights in oil were seen everywhere. Daddy and myself are half pass six in this, we just followed our usual routine to pray and then we were guided to bath the Buddha before joining the rest for some chanting. We were given 2 packets of flower water to take home for shower. It’s believed to wash away the bad luck and hence new beginnings will flourish. In short, we were there to celebrate the birth of Buddha.
After the prayers, we had vegetarian “Ba Kut Teh” in the temple. Bb shared some of our food before going out for his further exploration of the surroundings.
