Hundreds of Buddha Image statues at Wat MekPrasit, A siamese Thai Buddhist Temple in Ipon City, Perak, Malaysia

The leg / bare foot of a monk   Technically speaking, Wat Mekprasit was the first Siamese Temple that I have visited. That was probably 35 years ago when I was a school boy then and joined in with some classmates for a weekend tour of Ipoh. Naturally like any tourist (I originated from a mining town, Kampar, 25 miles south), you have to go through all the routine tour to San Bao Dong, Perak Caves and I remembered pretty well the last in our itinerary was landed at this Thai Buddhist temple (still keep those skinny picture of me all these years, haha..). Years went on where occasionally I still paid random visits here after "migrated" to Kuala Lumpur. I have skipped doing that for quite a long spell of time of nearly 10 years . Well, after a decade of soul searching in the big city, I have managed to track the old road and found this temple again as Ipoh has changed a lot after declared itself from town to a city.

Why does this temple has a string attaches to me ? I would think probably I remembered the Abbot then where he used to analyzes palmistry and most of which he predicted on me have turned into reality. Next, it is about the temple itself which is unique on its own, I guess.
