Kwong Fook Kong-Titi / 廣福宮-知知港.


Location :- Titi, Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan / Location:- 知知港, 日叻务, 森美兰州.

The haze were smothering the city so we decided to drive out to the countryside to see if it is badly effected. Travelling from semenyih towards the twists and turns of the B32/N32 states roads, one would need to stop by the semenyih dam to enjoy the beautiful view. But unfortunately not today, the whole dam was already covered in smog. Even the visibility of the road ahead isn’t good.

When we reach this small town, we stop by upon this coffee shop next to this temple. A food stop is essential as those earlier turns has really burn off some calories.

Upon our arrival to this temple, the caretaker appeared from the side room where other members were having an evening chit-chat. And after introducing ourself, the caretaker showed us around. Speaking in hakka, he told us that this temple is built 123 years ago, dating it back to 1892. And it is said to be the oldest temple in around here. The caretaker then told us the story of the main patron deity in this temple.

According to the caretaker, in ancient china, there is this filial young girl by the name of Guo Miao Ling / 郭妙玲 and she was married to a fisherman’s family.

On one fine day, while the men’s were out at sea, MiaoLing fell asleep after a long days work. During the nap, she dreamt that her husband and father in – law was struck by disaster at sea. In her dream, she manage to rescue her father in law but as she was to rescue her own husband, she was awoken by her mother in law for dinner. Thinking it was just a dream..she prayed for their safe returns.

A little a day after, her father in law return home with the body of her husband. Narrating the tragedy, the father in law mention that during the disaster, MiaoLing mysterious appear to save him but just as when she was about to save her husband, she suddenly vanish. MiaoLing was surprise as whatever said by her father in law is the same as what she has dreamt.

After a while, her father in law decided that MiaoLing should remarried as she was still young. She had refuse to this but the father in-law had arranged for the marriage. When the bride’s sedan arrived to pick up Miao ling, the sky open up and on orders, the soldier of heaven arrived to take MiaoLing to meet the Jade emperor, Yu Wang Da Di. She was bestowed by the Jade emperor as a heavenly fairy.

So from then on.. she is known as Xian Ren Shu Po Tai / 仙人叔婆太.

This version of the story is narrated from the previous caretaker to the current and i may not have got it exactly they way it was told. There is actually a few version i’ve found online but it’s still interesting to know another.
