THIS IS A LONG POST WITH MAYBE 300 PHOTOS AS I SPENT 3 HOURS HERE AT CHIN SWEE TEMPLE COMPLEX! 

I went to pray to the deity Chin Swee to make me even richer than Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong as Chin Swee was the patron deity of his home village in China and he vowed should he become rich he would build a temple in Chin Swee's honour! I promised the same! 

I also prayed to Buddha, Kuan Yin the Goddess of Mercy, the Eight Immortals and Xi Wangmu the Queen Mother of the Western Heaven to make me rich and powerful until the while world knows my name Dato Kee Hua Chee and in return I will build Buddhist temples in every nation on this planet.
Omitofu...
