Golden Pot For The Dragon Year

Like every year, our nearby Chinese temple will organize a Chinese New Year parade which is specially dedicated to the goddesses. As usual, they will passed by my place and these are the two of many photos that I've taken. Hopefully, I'll be able to take some really nice photo at the Thaipusam parade as well. Oh no, not at Batu Cave but here, at where I live!  Of coz, you'll be able to get better shots at Batu Cave and enjoy the magnificient experience at the same time of our Thaipusam Festival here in Malaysia. You'll be amazed.

And it is very common for the Chinese to use prosperous items for their prayer. We often used Fatt Kuih cause it brings the meaning of 'wealth'. Nowadays, something even better has been created which they use a steamed bun to wrap around Fatt Kuih and brings the meaning of 'confirm wealthy'! HAHAHA..... Don't you love the sound of it too. kekeke....
