Internet came back and gone away after a few happy minutes. Luckily I managed to sneak these series of photographs within this short window of opportunity.

Pai Thnee Kong ( Jade Emperor’s Prayers ) at my Mother’s house

Tonight is the night when Chinese of Hokkien descent pray tothe Jade Emperor of the Heavens ie the 9th Day of the Chinese New Year – Sunday, February 5th 2017. It usually starts off around midnight of the 8th Day when offerings were arranged and laid on the prayers table. As legend went, the Hokkien County was invaded by barbarians during the beginning of Chinese New Year and they went into hiding in their sugar-cane fields. On the 9th Day of the CNY, they emerged safely from hiding when the barbarians went off. They prayed to the Jade Emperor for their safety and two complete sugar-cane were offered with leaves and roots as gratitude.

Penang Chinese New Year ( CNY ) Lanterns Festival ~ Year of the Rooster 2017   Leave a comment


Penang Chinese New Year ( CNY ) Lanterns Festival ~ Year of the Rooster 2017

Coming from a photographer who shoots everything as branded by a friend, these are the photographs of the Penang CNY Lanterns Festival held currently in the City of George Town, Penang, Malaysia. I had added an extra word of Festival to make the event complete in meaning.

I shall slowly try to shoot lesser photographs in 2017 as I am a lousy photographer compared to the others. I thought appreciation of photographs is very subjective ~ while I thought some photographs which I entered for photo competitions are mediocre  in my personal evaluation but some of my captured photographs won prizes. Well, I am completely puzzled maybe the Judges are biased! That’s human life! Happy Photography.
