Nine Emperor Gods Festival

Do you know that it's the ninth month of the Chinese Lunar calendar? I am sure you do, it wasn't that long ago that you have tasted the mooncakes while playing with the lanterns (oh you don't play with lanterns anymore!), that's the 15th day of the eighth month. After eating those mooncakes two weeks ago (where is it now?) and we are already in the ninth month.

The ninth month of the lunar calendar marks the start of the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. It is celebrated for exactly nine days. In Kuala Lumpur, the celebration is at Kampong Baru Ampang. People staying in Ampang will not like it because the traffic condition there is terrible.

If you would have noticed, it will also rain on all the nine days of the festival. Today it started raining in the morning and while I am writing this posting at 4.50 p.m. it is also raining. The roads will be flooded, yeah flooded with cars when the office hours end!!!
