Kuantan adventure

Kechara Paradise’s staff, led by their Head of Department Henry Ooi, went to Kuantan for an outing recently. Unsurprisingly, their first stop was the Kuantan Study Group Chapel. When they arrived, Leonard Chia was already waiting to greet them and to bring them to the chapel to prostrate to Lama Tsongkhapa.

After paying their respects to Lama Tsongkhapa and a quick vegetarian lunch, the group then adjourned to East Coast Mall, the latest attraction in town and one of their main reasons for visiting Kuantan!

Lunch time!

The evening was spent at the Pahang Buddhist Association (PBA), which is home to very large white Buddha Shakyamuni and Kuan Yin statues. The team were stunned to see that the walls of the PBA were also completed inlaid with Shakyamuni tsa tsas, a sight sure to inspire faith in anyone who lays their eyes on it.

The KP team were also very impressed to learn that PBA also has a haemodialysis centre for those who have renal failure but cannot afford for medical treatments. After touring the premise, the team then went to a small pond next to the temple to feed the fishes while reciting Medicine Buddha’s mantra.

Visiting NASAM

Before leaving for KL, and after having much fun at the beach, the KP team also had the chance to visit the National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM). NASAM helps stroke patients to do physiotherapy, so that they may recover from some of the effects of their stroke.

With so much packed in to their itinerary, the trip was fun and definitely fruitful. The KP team would like to extend their utmost gratitude to the Kuantan study group for their hospitality, and we hope to visit you all again soon!
