    The actual procession i think will start from 6pm onwards. The parade may start from 9pm, but not confirmed.
    I am also looking for people who are volunteers there to bring us in for better photo taking.

    thank you, ed9119

    I think this event quite tedious....we can shoot within the temple...once they leave the temple to parade and move to other temples....the tough part comes because got to move around and get good shots.
    luckily there are free buses for the devotees...so most probably shooters like us can hop on one and follow.....

    Not sure how many are interested, perhaps I can do a poll to see how many pple are interested.

    Hey guys, for those who like take this major temple event, make yourself free on the last
    day of the festival 05/oct / 2011.

    Reach respective temples around 630pm, look up for some nice candid shots & u can help yourself
    with some free vegeterian food & drink.

    Thousands of devotee will be arrived at the temple for the night procession so call sending off the NINE EMPEROR back to heaven.
    Most Hua CHe in action too.

    For Serangoon's Temple the procession start around 830pm from serangoon to sengkang river, first to walk nearly 1KM to kovan
    mrt & there will be coaches sending all to the end location.

    Warning: look after your own belonging & your own safety..happy shooting.

    I think 5th Oct is the grand finale as it is the day of the "yew keng". For days before that, I think there would be just Toaist rituals, prayers and ceremonies within the temple.

    Please correct me if I am wrong for people who are familiar with this event.

    If our headcount for this event is going to be many at the main temple, maybe we can meet up on the evening itself. =)

    Thank You

    You r welcome huhsimi,

    I like too but ill be joining other group at AMK this year,haha my home ground.

    you don't go to near to take photo during the procession so a fast zoom lens is a bonus,
    you can use flash during the action, watch up for surrounding movement, wish u
    don't bump into the procession team...not to worry just keep yourself cool & enjoy the events.
