The start of the 10 days feat

Today is the 9th month on the Lunar Calendar and that means the Hokkien in the country (the Buddhists) will go on a 10 days vegetarian feat. This is to celebrate Tien Gong or the Heavenly God or Jade Emperor on the 9th day of the 9th month on the Lunar calendar. This festival is mostly celebrated by the Hokkien people here especially those who are residing in Penang where it is an extremely grand event.

Stalls selling vegetarian feasts will be every where around the island as most of the devotees will go on a 9 or 10 days vegetarian feat. This is the best time to check out all the vegetarian food where there comes in all kinds and colors which are really interesting! I'm am going to check these stalls out this weekend! :P
