This year’s Pai Ti Kong night falls on 2nd February Monday night. It was again a special school holiday on the next day because the school wanted us to rest at home after a long night of Pai Ti Kong. If you don’t know know what Pai Ti Kong is, it’s a festival that the Hokkien pray to the God of Sky and also known as the Hokkien New Year. A very happening night in Penang where you can hear a lot of firecrackers and see fireworks in the sky.
However, to me, the “ohm” of taking photograph was not there, most likely because of my half-broken lens and not fully equiped camera gear. I still like my last year’s photograph of the Chew Jetty Pai Ti Kong celebration. It also can be boring because I go to the Chew Jetty there every year, hopefully a special inspiration will come to me next year or perhaps go to somewhere else.
As usual, road block and cars parked far away from Pai Ti Kong place and one end of Weld Quay. We walked. I went there at around 11.30pm and there were already a lot of people when I was there.
=) I would love to get myself shown in a motion picture. I believe it’s work of some filmmaker but definitely not from the TV station. TV station’s crew wouldn’t be so kind to put up something like this to warn you.
There’s fireworks, lion dance, dragon dance and that’s all.
It always the same thing, the long ritual table with all the food for the God of Sky and candle lighting at the end. There’s a lot of photography enthusiast there to take photo too. A lot of which has a very good gear setup but I love mine. =)
I want to play firecrackers! But then nobody in my house buy it, so no firecrackers for me.
By the way, Mr Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was there too!
