Welcome to Hong Kong St. I met the team last night and we have a great festival planned. Tonight we invite the god. And for the next nine days there will be prayers and processions and good vegetarian food (we are in Penang after all!).
Here are some shots taken yesterday.
I arrived to see them putting up the bamboo pole of invitation.
This next shot actually says it all about this place – they are a team!!!
And up it goes at the end of Hong Kong St, marking the location of the festival. I understand that the place where they erected the pole has been exactly the same spot for more than 100 years.
Because the temple is small, they can use their beautiful, old ornamentations without fear of them being damaged. If you visit you can see these handmade artifacts – painted glass, silk embroidery and more.
Tonight we welcome the Emperor God! Stay tuned.
BTW, I’m trying these posts from my iPad. Excuse me while I sort it out. It is rather fun though!
How are you ?
It’s a magnificent event indeed ! This year the same, I and my wife will be re-visiting the Tow Boe Kiong, Ampang , KL.
See you, hope to get more update from your side
thank you for posting this up. I used to live in KL and frequented the event every year.
Do you happen to have the schedule for the events at the Hong Kong Street Temple?
