It has been so many years that I couldn't sleep peacefully on the 9th day of CNY. I hate to be the victim of the noise of the fire alarm, house alarm, car alarm, dog bark, fire cracker, "red bomb" and also human. So, I decided to join in the fun to create more noise to the street. Wakakakak!
Since my husband and I are not hokkien, we prayed to the Jade Emperor of Heaven in much simpler way. I bought apple, pineapple, mandarine oranges, Ang Ku kuih and sweet glutinous kuih. Of course, I also prepared some paper gold, tea and incense as well.
My very simple first time celebration on the Jade Emperor's birthday. I am sure we can do it better for the years in future.
"Huat ah! Huat ah!...." I kept hearing this from my neighbourhood when burning paper gold. My husband and I were still too shy to shout this out loud. Hehehe! May be next year.
We went back to the house when it closed to 1am. Yawn....I will take a half day leave today in the afternoon, I hope I can take a nap to recover my sleep loss. "Huat ah!...Ai Kun..." (yawn)
