Kuan Yin Temple Klang

E is for .....
Examination, and

Today is the 4th Day of Chinese New Year. This is the scene at the century old Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) Temple, Klang. Families with children who are still studying come here to pray to the God of Education for excellent study and examination luck. According to the almanac, today is an auspicious day to do so. They came to the temple with offerings of incense, joss papers, flowers and mandarin oranges. Some also believe that offerings such as garlic will help the child excel in calculation/mathematics, celery will make him/her hardworking while spring onion is for intelligence and leek is for wisdom.

Today's post is an entry in ABC Wednesday Round 6, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt. For more information and photos, please log on to this site.

    Praying gives them a calming effect.

    I remember seeing people running to be the first to place the burning joss sticks. Is that in taiwan or Hong Kong??


Yay, I have comments!
