The Che Kung Temple.

10 02 2008

In Chinese lunar new year, we visit parent, relatives and friends to celebrate the new year. This new year visiting period will start from the 1st day of the new year and continue around 1-2 weeks. There is one day not suitable for visiting, it is the 3rd day of the new year. In tradition, this special day will likely or higher probability to have arguments with the others when you go out. In Hong Kong, many people go to the Che Kung Temple to worship the God “Che Kung” and wish that he gives them good luck in this year. I visited the temple today and it was really crowed. I bought two pinwheels there afterward. Why pinwheel ? it has a special meaning in Chinese too. The pinwheel spins smoothly in the wind, in our word, your life in this year will work smoothly without obstacles, sounds great! ha.

This is the first time I visit the “Che Kung Temple”. When the time i reached the temple, there are already full of people. Since i am short little girl….>,< I hardly see what is going on in the front. The police is there to take control of everything and make sure the people is moving in and out the temple smoothly. After waiting for 10 mins we finally get into the temple and there is people and smoke everywhere. The “Che Kung” is painted in gold colour and it is about 7 meters tall, because of my hight i can’t really see how his face look like…..*_* We stay there around 30 mins and Kaas bought me a pinwheel~

I am really having a lot of fun with Kaas in this new year and i would like to say thank you for him. ” THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME A GOOD START OF THIS YEAR!!!!” ^_^
