Today is the birthday of Tua Pek Kong. What I’m going to show below is some fire & light theme surrounding today’s festival.
Candle for Tua Pek Kong.
Lotus praying light.
Roasted duck for Tua Pek Kong!
This has nothing to do with light. I’m just waiting to ‘dig’ on it later.
I don’t know what this ‘thing’ is called. But the act of using it is call ‘Puak Pui’. Haha
The duck is ready. Time to makan!
Normally, we have roasted pork for prayer.
Last picture, yeah Tua Pek Kong comes liao, can eat… haha…

iWalk, I was surprised when I learned Tua Pek Kong is a God for Malaysia only. All these while I thought China also have this particular God.
Tua Pek Kong is a God for Malaysia only. I think it is someone our ancestors gave thanks and worshiped after they had safely reached Malaysia from southern China :daydream:
