Yap Ah Loy Temple, KL

The altar of Yap Ah Loy Temple in Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur. This temple is dedicated to the Kapitan of Kuala Lumpur, Yap Ah Loy. Take note of the ornate carving of the wooden boat hung above the altar, in between the two huge lanterns.

It was actually the first thing I noticed, though I thought it was a house, not a boat. Fabulous!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
