Last 2 weeks were the yearly “9th Emperor’s Festival” celebrated by the Chinese.
I happen to live nearby and Ryan asked me to go there with him on the first day of the festival.
Darren joined us and off we went.
This is the temple. As it was the first day, the crowd was overwhelming. We reached there at 11pm cos 12midnight was the ceremony to welcome the 9th Emperor’ to the temple.
As we walked near, we saw many stalls outside the entrance selling all sorts of things.
