Thread: Rushing to Place Jossticks

    Default Rushing to Place Jossticks

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know any details about an event during Chinese New Year Eve or Chinese New Year Day where aunties all rush into a temple to be the first to put joss sticks onto an urn.

    Can we be situated inside the temple first before they rush in?

    You must be referring to the Kuan Yin Temple in Waterloo Street. I don't think they will allow any private photographer inside. Anyway, it's not a mere rush to place your joss sticks. It is in fact more of a stampede.

    A few other temples are also having this ..
    You go around to a few of the neighbourhood temples asking if there is such things in their temple, but can't be sure they allow photography inside their premises..

    be prepared with your goggles.
    especially at waterloo street.
    the incense are too much for your eyes to tahan.
    later very difficult to shoot
    You are who you are. Shoot what you enjoy.
