Hokkien Bai ti Gong

Whenever it is 8th day of Chinese New year, all the Hokkiens will be busy preparing their offerings to Jade Emperor.
You can spot all the housewives weaving in and out of the markets to buy all sorts of things for the big celebration.

On the night itself
we Burn candles and incense

we prepare dried fruits

we prepare flowers

we prepare Ang ku Kuih - this is Made by my MOm...we have orange & black one

And many many more

And we wait until 12am struck when 9th day of Chinese new year comes. Then we burn the paper gold, the Sugarcane to Jade Emperor for saving our lives during the hard time of Communist in Malaya.

This year round, we have no firecrackers. Instead, my dad bought us one of this
we wrote all the wish and we let the lantern bring all our wishes to Jade Emperor and hopefully it comes true ^^

Of course, there are alot of them whom actually bought this
which adds on to the Mood of Chinese New year

how could I not possibly love Chinese new year, when it has all the nice food, ang pao, and fireworks?
Happy Chinese New Year to all my readers!!

  4. HitoMi,

    Great photo set!

    But no photos of you celebrating CNY. ;-(

    Outside of the Chinese/American community there is little knowledge or the traditions behind CNY celebrations.

    Thank you for all the info that I never knew.

    Have a great CNY year of the Tiger!
