HONG KONG: 10,000 BUDDHAS in SHATIN



HONG KONG: 10,000 BUDDHAS in SHATIN
For those of you looking for off-the-trail tourist attractions in Hong Kong, you can go to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Shatin district. 
It is a famous Buddhist monastery located on the mountain behind Shatin Pai Tau Village near the Shatin station of the East Rail Line of the  Mass Transit Railway (MTR) in Hong Kong.
This place is near IKEA Shatin. We dropped by IKEA Shatin after our visit to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery.
It was founded in 1949 by the Reverend Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman who dedicated the last years of his life to constructing a temple containing nearly 13,000 statues of Buddha, and completed in 1957. 
There are no resident monks in this monastery. The ones managing this monastery are laypersons.
The monastery is divided into upper and lower portions. The whole complex occupies over eight hectares. In this complex are five temples, four pavilions, one pagoda and one veranda.
The main building of the monastery is the Ten Thousand Buddhas Temple which has more than 12,800 pieces of Buddha statues (in different postures) placed on the walls. 
The immortal body of Rev. Yuet Kai is located in the central portion of the temple.
The climb to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery is not for everybody though. 
You should have strong knees to climb the path up to the 10,000 Buddhas Temple. 
Juice mi aside from parang bundok ang aakyatin mo, aba may blessings pa nang pumunta kami doon. Yes! Inulan kami! Kaya ayun kesa 45 minutes inabot kami ng 2 hours bago namin naakyat ang tuktok ng bundok, pero naman sulit talaga!
At first, we got lost and took the wrong way because we missed the very small signage pointing to the direction of 10,000 Buddhas Monastery (see the above picture). 

We found ourselves climbing the cemetery (which has an escalator from the ground level) beside the Monastery. So, better take note of that "signage."

Everybody has gone loco over McDonalds collectible toys again! For sure, you'll gain several pounds just trying to complete your collections! 

Hey, you! Yes, you! You ought to watch what you eat even if you want to collect all of the nine (9) Despicable Me toys collectibles. Too much of everything is bad.
I still vividly recall when I was trying to complete my toy collection in the past, I ate nothing but McDonalds meals from morning 'til night and I ended up gaining several extra pounds and that is sooooo bad!

McDonalds store in Vizayas Avenue offers breakfast Happy Meals which can go for as low as Php77 - Hamdesal with orange juice. For sure, everyone now wants to go or live in that area! (NOTE: I heard other McDonalds stores now offer Hamdesal with orange juice.)


Nine (9) multiply by seventy seven pesos (Php77.00) equals six hundred ninety three pesos (Php693.00) for nine (9) minions.

You shouldn't buy (and eat!) all of those meals in one sitting though because nine (9) servings of the Burger McDo Happy Meal add up to 3510 calories, which are significantly more than the recommended 1940 calories per day for women and 2550 for men.

For everyone who wants to collect all nine (9) minions from McDonald's Philippines, let not this blind you to eat non-stop at McDonalds. You ought to balance it out. Remember who would play with the minions if you are already dead from eating too much.

Sadly, even if you do collect all nine (9) of the minions released by McDonalds here in the Philippines, your collection won't be truly complete until you manage to snag the six (6) other minions being offered by McDonalds Australia and the US. Two (2) evil minions - Purple Minion Babbler and Purple Minion Giggling - and four (4) minions - Jerry Whistle, Phil Jelly Whistle, Tom Babbler and Carl Rocket Skateboard - won't be made available here in the Philippines.

Despicable Me 2 will start screening on July 3.  I wish someone from the movie marketing department invite me to the movie premiere!
