Street Temple Fair 街坊庙会

We got up early this morning. The Taichi group was invited to participate in the Kajang Mini Street Temple Fair from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm.

The Fair was organised by the Kajang Merchants Club to liven up the new year atmosphere of the town during the Chinese New Year.

Stores were set up selling all types of home-cooked food, wares and bargains and games. Lion dances and cultural presentation were the highlights of the Fair.

We opened two food stall with varieties of authentic home-cooked food such as: Hokkian Hong Bak, Hakka Lui Cha, Yam cake, Roast pork ribs porridge and ice kajang (ABC) . This is our contribution to this community project.

The Mentri Besar of Selangor would grace the Fair in the evening.

We enjoyed ourselves very much and our stores closed at 3:00 pm.


我们今天很早就起身,因为要去参加加影街坊庙会。

这庙会是由加影商矿公会主办,目的是要更加添农历新年期间的春意,也给街坊一个集体欢庆新春的场合。

庙会设有许多摊档,售卖各种风味美食,物品及书画展览及游戏。庙会的高潮是舞狮表演及各种文娱舞蹈及歌唱。

我们太极班受委管理两个档位,售卖各种由成员及友好们烹煮,美味的道地风味食物,如福建丰肉,客家擂茶,烧猪骨粥,芋头糕,杂冰等。这是我们对社区活动的一个奉献。

雪兰莪州务大臣将在傍晚时候,前来参与此盛会。

我们大家都很愉快的参与这次工作。在下午三时左右,我们也宣告休工。

Yes, it was fun, fun, fun and a free tan at the end of the day. Never done so many (hundreds) bowls of ABC in my life. Might consider "niaga" in ABC. Anyone to join in partnership?

the night crowd was so much bigger! more $$$ if there was another "shift" selling ABC in the evening. all were hot and thirsty!

Never mind, there will always be another chance to contribute our expertise in ABC with a sweeter, thicker syrup and gula melaka.

We missed the night fun fun fun because of the church engagement! So were our church people they missed the fun fun fun of the town.

Hoped next year not clash of programme...
