How Would You Interpret It?


" Who is she sms to? and what is the content of the message?" These were the questions so many people asked when this lady dressed in the costumes of a Chinese deity was seen texting on her handphone. Onlookers jokingly answered that she must be sending a prayer to the Chinese god, Tua Pek Kong. And who was sending this butterfly to rest on these oranges which were placed inside the temple as offerings to the god? I asked an old devotee and he said it must be god-sent. I was the only one who managed to take this butterfly photo. The other photographer who saw this was a second too late, as he was focusing on the insect, it flew away and disappeared among the several hundred devotees who had gathered at the temple to celebrate the birthday of Tua Pek Kong.
