The kids first time to Thean Hou Temple (and we have not been there since our ROM🤭🤣). Actually we have been hesitating – because we know surely 人山人海 plus the rain. At the end, it was manageable; parked at the allocated parking which is quite a distance walk (don’t attempt to go alone at night, scary/creepy/dark walk).
The kids especially Noelle were amused by the lightings – but soon (after we walked around to take photos) she realised ‘nothing special also’! 🤣🙄 We told her that there’s a temple and there is where people pray and not a playground. And then came with her million of questions – pray what, pray who…etc. 🙄 (me: go ask ur papa la…🙄🙄🙄). In the midst, Nikki made a fuss and started crying – I told her we are going leave her there to be a ‘nun’ if she continues to cry🙄🙄. ‘What is a nun?’ asked Noelle. 🤦🏻♀️ I told her a nun stays in the temple and look after the temple; then the papa added ‘cannot eat meat and only eat vegetarian’ 😒 (only think about food only).
There was a stretch of ‘pasar malam’ but the prices there were inflated – no choice but to buy sugar cane because they wanted. We walked back to our car and then made our way back; asked if they want to come again – an immediate ‘no’! 🙄🤣
