Historical final burning of Prai’s Tai Soo Yah

Historical event of the final burning of the Tai Soo Yah Paper Effigy at Prai Megamall, Penang, on Merdeka Day eve of Tuesday, August 30, 2016 as there shall be no paper effigy as from 2017. A permanent idol of Tai Soo Yah of over 12 feet in height shall be replacing this paper effigy in future. Thus, this permanent idol of Tai Soo Yah put an end to future burning of the Tai Soo Yah paper effigy – a logical economical decision.

I am glad and satisfied that I had recorded this historical event with Bertrand Linet, Allen Lim and Marilyn Ho in photographic records. There shall no burning of the Tai Soo Yah paper effigy next year but I believe joss paper and other paper offerings shall be burnt instead.
