Workers’ Party (WP) chairman Sylvia Lim was invited to yet another Taoist temple, a week after she was invited to visit the Chong Ghee temple at Sengkang GRC.

This time, Ms Lim was accompanied by fellow Aljunied GRC MP Gerald Giam to the 北道堂 Taoist temple nestled amid a row of industrial shops at 19 Tampines Ave. The MPs were invited to visit the temple by the clergy and leaders on Tuesday (15 Sept).

Sharing a photo of the MPs at the temple, the Aljunied GRC Facebook page revealed that the temple could not hold its annual 7th lunar month dinner this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. The MPs shared their hosts’ hope that the temple would return to being as busy as it was before the pandemic hit, soon:

“Off the beaten path of Tampines Ave, one will find 北道堂—a quaint Taoist temple that stands out in a row of industrial shops. On 15 September 2020, the temple clergy and leaders welcomed MPs Sylvia Lim and Gerald Giam to the vividly decorated place of worship.
“In previous years, the temple would be packed with devotees attending the 7th Lunar Month Dinner. Due to covid-19 restrictions, the Temple could not hold the annual dinner this year. Together with the hosts, the MPs expressed hope that the temple will relive the bustling scenes soon.”

The visit to the Taoist place of worship at Tampines Ave is the third temple visit Ms Lim has made in as many weeks. Last week, she accompanied WP chief Pritam Singh and the four Sengkang GRC MPs to the Chong Ghee temple at Rivervale Crescent.
