These were photos taken this evening at the Tua Pek Kong temple in town.
Lots of people
Burning of paper money
To ask for blessing
There were two items for auction in the evening. This 平安灯"lamp of peace" was hung high above the bamboo tree and the starting price was RM5,000. Finally, someone bought it for RM10,800 (US$3,400). The other item was what they call 黑金"black gold" and was finally sold for RM8000 (US$2,500). Both item promises good luck, prosperity, wealth and health for the owner.
