After tonight’s “Pai Thnee Kong”, we are now looking forward to the 15th day of The Lunar Chinese New Year “CHAP GOH MEH” aka known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day !    Cindy Lim, my sister’s comments.

This Eighth Day of the Chinese New Year is the very day the Hokkiens Clan emerged from the sugar cane plantations safely after an invasion from some barbaric tribes during Chinese New Year. We, the Hokkiens Clan, prayed to the Jade Emperor for our safety and peaceful conclusion to the unwelcome invasion with two stalks of sugar cane ( one each tied to the front leg of the altar table ) with other offerings. As some of us are more Buddhist-oriented,  we do not offer Roasted Pigs, Ducks, Chicken and other meat offerings anymore.  My mother offers only vegetarian offerings and fruits only. Thus, it is normally the Hokkiens dialect  Chinese Community prays to The Jade Emperor during the night of the 8th Day. The actual day of the Jade Emperor’s Birthday is the 9th Day of the Chinese New Year.

Please note that each stalk of sugar cane is covered with yellow prayers’ joss paper. Each stalk is tied to the right/left leg of the altar table.
