    Maybe you ask the temple owners to organise a "CS photographers rush-in" event first before the actual "aunties rush-in".

    hmmm... i went there just sometime after midnight (accompanying my father).
    not as smoky as compared to a few years ago.
    the smoky atm was due to the incense from the joss sticks.
    i remembered the very first time i went, the whole greenery in front of that HDB block facing the guan yin temple was full of joss stick that in the incense from those only filled up that whole area.
    wah... that time. step into the crowd for a few minutes already started to tear.
    can't even shoot properly.
    but this year is so much better.
    no tears from me.
    You are who you are. Shoot what you enjoy.

    This reminds me somewhat of my childhood days... I put on my swimming goggles when my folks took out joss paper to burn...

    In fact, I used to put some Optrex in the goggles, too!
