His recent art work was ‘Art is Rubbish is Art’ where he display his art pieces at the old Hin Company Bus Depot from 17th Jan till 14 Feb 2014. (sorry for the late information. Tomorrow is the last day.. but at least you can enjoy the pictures here. =P )
I have a quite a time looking for this place but eventually found it. The old bus depot was directly in front of the Grand Continental Hotel (now closed). When I reached, there were already people crowding outside, waiting for the doors to open at 12pm. It was open daily from 12pm to 8pm till 14th Feb 2014. (Not sure what they will do to the wall art after that date though)

.. a friendly reminder….
Some of his works….
not sure whether it is modern art or not…. but he uses all the rubbish to make it to something artistic.
more of it….
Painting on a door….
Painting on a old coffee canvas…
That’s all? Nope…… more to come. Stay tune with me…..
Still at the top of the Penang’s Kek Lok Si Temple,. Walking about was really nice and serene. There was another small temple at the top where another wishing tree where you could make your wish but putting a colourful wishful ribbon on it.
Nearby also a small man-made pond where you could see lots of Japanese carp swimming inside it. It was really a beautiful sight and you could also see part of the Penang Island from here.
Worshipers giving offering and prayers.
Electric tram tickets which I bought to get my trip to the base of the temple.
Finish? Nope….. there’s still lots to see. Heading to the other side, I was walking toward the seven storey main pagoda of the temple or the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas.
Again… beautiful architecture of the stone carving on the walls and pillars. Guess words can’t describe them as well as photos…..
Follow me on the my last part of my posting on Penang’s Visit to Kek Lok Si Temple.
Hi there!! Sorry for the long break on this posting of my Visit to Kek Lok Si Temple. I was traveling and also the the Lunar New Year celebration where there were so much things to share and post in between.
mmm.. where was I? Oh yes… me taking an electrical tram up to the top of the hill in the temple. If you do not want to take the tram up, you can also opt to walk up. =). Passing a monastery which was part of the temple.
At the top of the temple…. you can see part of the old white plaster Kuan Yin statue. It was replaced by the bronze statue of Kuan Yin where the earlier statue was damaged by a fire a few years ago..
The the new statue of the bronze Kuan Yin which stands at 30.2m The construction was completed in 2002 and open to the public. Due to generous donations from affluent chinese community, these allowed additional buildings to be constructed and also an ornate shelter for the Kuan Yin statue was constructed from 2005 to 2009. Later, 16 carved dragon pillars were built, carrying the top of three concentric octagonal roof.
