Weekend outing

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Mom bought me to this Thean Hou Temple during weekend. This is a berry bootiful temple and most of the Chinese will come here & do some prayers especially during Chinese New Year.

But too bad I cannot roam freely, so I just stayed in my bag & mom carried me around.

There are many bootiful lantern around the temple & here are some of the Chinese zodiac lantern. Can you spot the doggie lantern??

Yesterday was the last day of Chinese New year and also known as Chap Goh Mei. Chap Go Mei literally means the 15th night of Chinese New Year, which is also known as Chinese’s Valentines in South East Asia. It’s the day (or night) where young single women gather to throw mandarin oranges (or tangerines) into the sea/rive/lake in hope for their future husbands to pick up.

Nowadays, hooman write names and phone numbers onto the oranges instead of just names and hopefully they found someone special in their life.

Since Im a modern dog living in this modern world. I will broke the tradition. I, Twinkle, the boy will throw a oranges too!!! Hehheee...I wrote my name, my number & my blog addy on the orange. But since I cant find any river, lake or sea near my place. I just post it here. Remember, we are in cyberworld now. Wahahahaa.
