The Nine Emperor Gods

These are some shots from the tentage outside Eunos MRT dedicated to celebrating the birthday of the Nine Emperor Gods. My family was not into this type of worship. It is not Buddhist. It seems to be a mixture of Taoism and ancestral worship. In a country where so much of the educated have become Christian, these type of ceremonies help remind me that the Christians are actually in the minority in Singapore. Whatever it is, the Chinese faiths do not appear to disappearing.

I look at my own photographic work and realise that I am not really cut out to be a photojournalist. :) I never have a good establishing shot. Guess that I got to work on that one.
