Saturday was the day that devotees could come to the Ampang temple and get their rooms and beds for this year’s festival dates. It was great to see some friends, observe the temple cleaned up and ready to go, and feel the energy as we get ready to invite the Emperor and his entourage on Monday night.
There was quite a crowd gathered as the organizing committee worked hard to get the devotees their preferred spaces.
Meanwhile, the vendors’ supplies were arriving and the mood was jovial.
Here are members of the organizing committee and some volunteers discussing how it all happens, a little politics, and the value of a good cup of Chinese tea.
See you from the Hong Kong St Temple in Penang!
