Ampang ...

Last night I went to Ampang for 九皇爺誕 held in Ampang, which is an event held ever 9th of the 9th month in Lunar Canlerder. Is a very big event/celebration/activity here in West Malaysia, that I havent heard of it when I was back in Sabah. So, my gf want to have a visit there and as my friends and colleugues are telling me that I should go for some pictures, and I went.

The entrance to the temple. The amount of people there last night was "alot", that "alot" that I have to move inch by inch from the main entrance to the inner hall where I took this picture. Also I have waited about 5 mins to wait for the moment where less people will be infront of my camera... And alot of sweat.

A kind of incense sticks. For the chinese, there's variaty of shapes and sizes for the incense sticks. And that in the picture, cost me RM10 to wish me and my family good luck and health and wealth. The red paper will be written with my name on it so the recipient will know who to bless.

Another kind of Good Luck Wishing tools. In chinese, there are many ways/tools/believes that can bring good luck and wealth. I am not a Buddist nor Christian, but as a Chinese I have learn some tradition Chinese Belives like, Dont look back if anyone say your name out in the middle of the night, don't say it out if you smell anything at night, don't simply shh shh anywhere you like (this I kena before, and been sick for weeks/months ), don't wistle at night, dont open umbrella inside the house, and alot more ... 寧可信其有 ( Rather To Believe There Is ).

I think the people who make these cakes are very the Sai Lei ! Comes in varies of shapes and sizes. Normally they will have the shapes of some 'Holly Animals' like Turtles lah, Fishes lah, Pigs lah, and others, too bad that I am in a rush so I can't take pictures for all of them, but maybe in the future ok? hehehe. I am just wondering if these cakes still taste good after all the heavy coloring and those gold color paint on them.

菊花( Chrysanthemum Plants ). A very popular kind of flowers you'll see in Chinese. You'll see them in Yeo's can drinks, you'll see them in Flower Rings in funerals, you'll see them in grave yards, you'll see them in paintings and maybe gardens. They too have alot of colors ler, I've seen yellow, white, blue and purple. Lovely flowers they are ...
