Madam Cheah Tong Long’s religious goods stall has been in business for over 30 years at the same spot. She became a seer after inheriting the gift of interpretation of the celestial oracle of Guan Yin 100 Divine Lots from her father in law. He was a gifted scholar from Hainan Island, China.

A devotee may have unanswered questions close to his heart be it about business or job, the love relationship or family issues can offer prayers and seek direction from Guan Yin by Chinese fortune stick (Kew Chiam in Hokkien).

“Even if you’re the biggest klutz ever bumbling and fumbling at anything and everything; seemingly lethal for no apparent reasons or are plagued by fierce nightmares constantly. There is a solution at hand,” Madam Cheah confides.

There is a man inside the Guan Yin Temple who will conduct the prayer which involves hitting of the petty person symbolic of spiritual cleansing!
