CNY Lion Dance

On the 1st day of CNY morning, as usual I had prepared & set-up an mini altar right infront of my house to wait for the visiting of Lion Dance group.

This year I wanna make it a bit special, so I came out an ideal like this:



Was it look nice? I'm using 8 oranges + 1 "Ong Lai"(pineapple) & place it on top water surface, I'm also place flowers & 88 pcs of 1 cent coins into the water. Not forget also the most important items: "Ang Pow" & green Vege. It's symbolise to bring more Good Lucks & Prosperity for the whole year.

I had also snap a short video clips during the Lion Dance Ceremony, enjoy watching :)

I'm not sure the market in Penang, But in my hometown, the Lion Dance will visit chinese house door by door... so no need special invitation one... all you just need to hang Ang Pow right infront you main door can liao...

Usually I pack RM20 each year... Heng Heng mah...
