Wishing wishing wishing

Today was in a good mood, we went all the way to Ipoh at 6 something in the morning from Kampar just for Ipoh famous Dim Sum breakfast at Ming Kok before coming back to Kampar again for Chemistry Lecture. Call us nuts. XD
Thanks to Martin, Fiona my Tze Tzu boatmate's boy boy, for the ride. XD
After the breakfast, we have no where to go but Pei suggested this place. This is one nice place which i have never known of although i've been in living in Ipoh for 2 decades. It's such a really cool place. Let me tell you what, if you want to make any wishes, just any will do, especially in love, this is a very cool place to do so. There are so many ways of making wishes and cool cool things there. I thought it was really fascinating. Besides the wishing well where you throw coins into it before making a wish, there is a wishing tree. It's like the Hong Kong's famous Wishing Tree like you see on most Hong Kong shows. Lol.

Oh, forgot to mention it's Guan Yin Tong (God of Mercy Caves)


You were given a roll of paper tied with a string that is attached to an orange at the edge. So you have to wirte your wishes on the paper before trying to swing it up as high as possible to the Wishing Tree. Try to get it landed on the tree branches, as people say the higher it goes the better or the higher chances of your wish will come true. Haha. So we all wrote our wishes on the paper and swing it high high up to the tree. Martin's reached the highest, I think Fiona's and mine got slightly lower than of Martin's, haha, but still consider high enough. We only did once and it got landed on branches. But Pei was so funny, she tried thrice only could get it hung on to a branch. Pei, it doesnt matter how many times you throw, it depends on how high it goes. So you got it quite high above. So stop ranting and whining all the way back to Kampar about God doesnt want to grant your wish that made you throw it again and again till the third time only could get it hung on to the branch yadda yadda yadda. It's high enough okay. Lol


The Wishing Tree


Besides that,there's a place for couples to "lock their love". Fiona and Martin bought a lock there and to write their names on it only to lock it on an extremely long chain along the rocky site. It symblolises blessing to the couple. To lock their heart forever for each other. Sooowiiiiiiiit!!!



There is another cool thing we found. It's this big rock that people were saying that when you touch it with your eyes closed and whole heartedly, you could feel the rock is "alive", wow....something alive inside the rock or the rock itself is alive or the rock gets alive or whatever yadda yadda, I just couldn't feel it anyway...LOL


Martin, trying to connect with the rocky while Fiona is watching..Haha


After that, we walked around, exploring the beauty of nature surrounding this limestone. And we snapped pictures around.

What are they doin'? Haha.


Two siao poh leng lui....XD


While on the way back.....
