Yes, you heard it right!

These exceptional onboard passengers were the Chinese sea goddess Mazu (Matsu) and her two deity-guardians, Qian Li Yan and Shun Feng Er.

Under the China-Malaysia Mazu Cultural Exchange programme, these statues arrived at the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur on July 1.

According to the BBC, they were provided with their own "passports" and accompanied by a sizeable delegation of followers.

Apparently one of the transport organisers had reserved three business class seats for the statues, at a cost of at least 2000 RMB each.

However, despite the limited legroom and odd glances from fellow travellers, passengers felt safe and protected during their trip.
