Dear & I had been to this Buddhist Shrine at Repulse Bay with our family & friends many years ago before we even knew each other, but it very much still looks the same now except that there’re new stuffs like the extended walkway out to the sea etc.

And as usual, there were many worshippers lining up to give praying & offerings to the Goddess of Mercy (or “Kuan Yin” in Chinese) :
