23 May 2008 - Tua Pek Gong Temple Celebration

This blog is about a tour for myself, on the celebration in the Pulau Ubin Tua Pek Gong Temple.

2008 is the first year that Pulau Ubin Tua Pek Gong Temple holds such a major celebration for the residents of the island, and also for the devotees of the temple. Flags and lanterns can be seen hanging along the way from the jetty to the town; Chinese opera performance, Ge-tai performance can be seen to fill that quiet night of the island.

To bad, i miss out the Ge-Tai performance, but... I did not miss out the day view of whats going on behind the scene.

There will be another celebration for the Tua Pek Gong coming up in the next few months.
Till then, I will update about the prayer's celebration.
