    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.

    1) huhsimi
    2) Therenaissance

    Cheers

    hi all

    i google and found this:

    http://www.the-inncrowd.com/festivalsevents.htm

    Nine Emperor Gods Festival. For 9 days at the Kiu Ong Yiah Temple ("Nine Emperor Gods Temple") on Upper Serangoon Road, devotees rejoice in the visit of the Nine Emperor Gods, who is believed to cure ailments and bestow good fortune and longevity. Priests write charms with their blood and at the height of the celebration, the images of the Nine Emperor Gods parade past in intricate sedan chairs carried by 8 men. As the chairs leave the temple, they begin to sway and jerk as if possessed by the gods. The carriers then charge into the crowd, running back and forth as devotees are bathed in the smoke of hundreds of joss-sticks. Onlookers open their wallets and handbags, fanning in the holy smoke to encourage financial success in the coming year.



    so i think the event is on for 9 days... better call the temple to confirm

    I am just a hobby photographer. Last day and grand finale is 5th Oct but from now till 5th, you guys can go either Eunos MRT or Kiu Ong Yiah Temple at upper serangoon to have a look.

    Kudos to yap1985 for the vids below:

    I've been there for the past 10 years plus...

    from what i know, they will move off at around 9-10 ( as I will always leave 1st b4 they move off, in order for me to get a good parking lot haha, so I'm not sure about what time they move off). but normally i will start seeing them at around 10.30pm - 11.00pm.

    route wise I'm not sure (as I'm a direction idiot haha) i only know they will end up at a big long kang near seng kang area or punggol? I'm not too sure haha.

    after they settled down, they will start praying for around 30mins before sending the god back.

    everything will end around midnight

    Please be there before 8pm just to play safe.

    I went to Eunos earlier and there was another one. This Sunday is their yew keng and starts from 10am.
    FYI, for interested shooters.
