NINE EMPEROR GODS FESTIVAL 2011

02 OCTOBER 2011, SUNDAY
ANBANG NAN TIEN TEMPLE, AMPANG (南天宮安邦)

Going for the Nine Emperor Gods prayer is one of our family annual activities without failed for many years and that was what we just did this morning.

As usual, we woke up slightly earlier, got prepared and went straight to pick up both grandma and grandpa before departing to Anbang Nan Tien Temple (南天宮安邦) for the prayer and this seems to be quick routine to us.
This year, the Nine Emperor Gods prayer kicked start from 27 September 2011 (九月初一) to 05 October 2011 (九月初九) and normally the crowd during weekend will be much more heavier than weekdays.


The minute we reached the temple, got our car parked after few rounds of searching, we then started doing our usual things as follow:
As usual, grandpa and grandma will go into the temple to worship while four of us (Daddy, Mommy, 婆婆 and little Kitboy) will just wonder around outside the temple. But this year, we do stepped into the temple for a very short while before we started wondering around.


As usual, there will be many stalls selling pre-packed joss sticks, ang-ku kueh (红龟包), 转运风车, traditional handmade 面粉公仔, vegetarian food and etc.


As usual, little Kit boy will make a guaranteed stop at this stall that sells colourful 转运风车 and asked for one. And this would be his forth 转运风车.




And as usual, we will have Ampang Yong Tau Fu for our lunch after grandma and grandpa have done with their worshiping.

I hope 婆婆, grandma and grandpa will be blessed with good health, while hubby 工作顺利 and little Kit boy 快高长大.
