If you’re a worshiper or a believer, rituals to call god’s attention for a wish can be done. Wash your hands, then, you go inside the chapel barefoot and get the two blocks of wood. You can have a wish come true if the two blocks of wood are face up after dropping it, otherwise, you’ll have next time and wait until the gods will grant you their favor.
Another ritual is climbing to 81 steps, which means 81 chapters of Taoism scriptures, then reaching the top, you’ll light joss sticks and the monks will read your fortune.

I went to Cebu City last month. I'm hoping for another trip next month. I'll probably try to get inside the Temple this time and make a wish. Thank you for your visits today. Please leave your marks.
