Don't we wish we have a tree like that here in Malaysia? But we do. Yes, we do have our very own Wishing Tree. It is located in Ipoh at a temple ground. It is at Kwan Yin Tong, Jalan Raja Dr Nazrin Shah and it has attracted people from as far away as Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Taiwan as well as Western countries. So, the next time you are in Ipoh visit the tree and have a wish granted. It is believed that the spirit of a Tibetan deity dwells in the tree and is able to grant people their wishes. The temple is open daily throughout the year.
According to The Star, state executive councillor Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, who visited the temple, said Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Kadir would visit the temple tomorrow at 10.30pm.
“He will be making an important announcement, which will be good news for the temple,” he added.
Behold the Wishing Tree..

Even if we don't believe in the wishing tree, I think it's fun to see it and try our luck.:DReplyDelete
I sure like your spunk, Lina!ReplyDelete
I agree it'll be fun!
I also want to go there to make a wish, hehe...ReplyDelete
Think there is one wishing tree in Macau and in Thailand too. Interestingly we have our very own in Ipoh. What kind of tree is that looks huge? Heard of spirits living in trees in our younger days especially banana tree with the red string thingy. tQ.ReplyDelete
KS, yeah, why not. You can drop by there on your way back to your hometown. Nothing ventured nothing gained, eh?ReplyDelete
Bananaz, the article said it's a four-storey tall tree so it's pretty tall.ReplyDelete
About the spirit in the banana tree, in school a teacher told us that her brother and some friends did the red thread thingy and waited past midnight but nothing happened.
However, raintrees do have spirits, from as early as when two leaves start sprouting.
christians has a wishing tree every christmas...they just go shop it and place it in their house without planting it. Santa will come at nite grant ur little kids wish....every culture/religion has their own wishing tree...that's very niceReplyDelete
Poor wishing tree. LOL :D I wanna plant this tree too so that I can have all my wishes come true.ReplyDelete
Love is Cinta, that's a great way of looking at it! Thanks for stopping by and for sharing your wisdom.ReplyDelete
Tekkaus, why poor? I would say the tree is rich with so many good wishes hanging from it. Your red mango tree comes to mind and would make a great wishing tree itself. Only thing is, the mangoes would go fast.ReplyDelete
