Historical final burning of Prai’s Tai Soo Yah ~ Part 3   Leave a comment


Historical final burning of Prai’s Tai Soo Yah ~ Part 3

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.

Tomorrow is the Final Part 4 of this event. Hope you all enjoyed these postings.

Historical final burning of Prai’s Tai Soo Yah ~ Part 1

It was around 7.00 pm when we left the house. The traffic at the entries to the First Penang Bridge was badly jammed with cars as tonight is the Merdeka (Independence) Day of Malaya (Peninsular Malaysia) and Sabah. Crossing the bridge which usually took 15 to 20 minutes, was done in 40 minutes or so with the crawling traffic. Just wondering why no body wanted to use the Second Penang Bridge?

This is the second night I am photo-shooting here at the aging Cantonese Opera in poor lighting condition. Perhaps this is the last time that I shall be shooting here.
