Visit a temple the Gen-Y way

My mornings in Malaysia has always been a healthy breakfast then news reading. I have came across this interesting article in NanYang Siang Pau about the fun things that we should do during CNY.

One of them stirred my interest. Even though I am a Christian, I resolved the check this website out.

This is the link:
天地宫


It takes quite a bit of time to load though. And it is in mandarin.

I find it quite educating. The website has some simple facts about offerings to the gods and some knowledge that even elude some Taoists. So, if you want to avoid the crowd at temples or if you are allergic to the smell of incense like me, why not have a look at this website.


It is also quite entertaining. There is nice Chinese music playing in the background. And the visitor will take the role of a young girl who is there to learn about offering prayer in a Taoist temple.




I can even download amulet or portraits of the gods and even have my fortune told.




This is my wish for CNY! I released a lamp called 孔明灯 on the website.

What an interative way to learn about some Chinese tradition!
