CNY Celebration at Yu Huang Temple, Tuaran

There was a Chinese New Year celebration in Yu Huang Temple, Tuaran, on last Sunday (Feb 5). It was really worth the time to go there. You could see all kind of lions, dragons and qi-ling performed there. Besides, there were also other performances such as Wushu, Chinese cultural dances.

Lion Dance

They played the lion dance so well that you thought the lions were real animals. The “Lion King” of Yick Nam School was also invited to perform. All the best lion teams were there. I must say this was a very enjoyable and high standard show. I was so deeply focus on photo shooting that I forgot I was exposed under the hot sun for hours. Unfortunately, due to the car tyre bocor, I missed the Green Lion performance in the evening. Not many chance we can see Green Lion…

Have been a long time I didn’t see the “Big Head Buddha”. So happy to see him again that day. On the same day, I also went to Ling San 9-Storey Pagoda and Tuaran Tamu. Later I will post the photos too. Tomorrow I will go for White Water Rafting at Padas River so I may not blog. If I manage to survive, see you again on Thursday.

  4. Am really interested in the ‘butod’ story. I’ve a story of my own about this ‘butod’. When we were kids, butod was one of our most favourite dishes (since the house area was surrounded by rumbia). We (my siblings n I) spent hours a day to find for butod. The unforgettable story started like this; I worked hard to find the butod (i think few hours), I cooked them (the most wonderful recipe ever), then i took my bath. Unluckily, when i finished bathing and was ready to have my meal; i found that my ‘harderaned’ butods were gone…(eaten by my younger siblings). Know what happened after that? I hit my mom’s cooking pot until it was broken into half with big and small holes everywhere…..Imagine the situation when a 7 year old girl was crying with a big steel ‘sudip’ and broken cooking pot…..your pictures truly bring back the memory…..(this happened 30 years ago u know. And it’s not easy to find sago in Tuaran or KK area) TQ
