Believe It Or Not

This is the real encounter incident from me more than 8 years in construction site experienced. If anyone of you been any construction sites, do you realised that most of the construction sites will have a 'Datuk Gong' in there?

It's not only a believe for Chinese, I can see all races of workers in construction sites believe in it. Usually they did some prayers before start of a project to avoid any nature act disaster on the site, they called it as 'God of Land' to pray before start any project.

Back in my first year working in construction site in Bayan Baru, I really met lots of weird incident happened nearby my construction sites. One of it not far from my site, they never did any prayer before start work and also never placed a 'Datuk Gong' in the site. From the beginning of the project, the piling work delayed more than 2 months. They did try many methods and different machines to drive in the piles but all failed! They not even able to drive in the fist pile, every piles they drove in were broken or the machine broke down. Imagine my site can drove in all the piles nicely.

After that someone has told them to make some prayers because the land is not 'clean' at all, after they did some prayers, the piles can drove in nicely immediately. I really can't explain it how it works. I really saw it with my own eyes.

Got one incident in my site, one day the contractor tried to shifted the 'Datuk Gong' to another location because it interrupted the road access, on that day the site had a serious accident, a steel roof trust about 150 feet long 5 tonnes weight collapsed during the installation. I was escape from that because so coincidence I got concrete test at the same time, I was suppose to go that location to check some steel bars. I was really lucky that not involved in that accident, if not I won't able to survive. That accident caused 3 workers injured and luckily no one died.

Sometimes, some workers forgot to pray at the 'Datuk Gong', at night they saw something in the construction site. Is that so powerful? Well... I can't explain it, but I really experienced it many times, I heard something was out there.

Even all international factories such as Intel, Dell, and many more also requested the contractor to go through the prayer process before and during the project. So how do you explain it?

The End

Kenny, guess this is an unavoidable fact for all contruction sites. Apparently nearly every housing area will have it's own small lil place to worship either datuk gong or dei chi gong or sometimes both.
