Pai Tian Kong of Rat Year

Tonight after 11pm, Hokkien in Malaysia especially Penang will celebrate Pai Tian Kong (拜天公).

Sugar cane is a must in this ritual! Why? Believe that hokkien people were hiding in the sugar cane plantation on the 9th day of CNY from enemy i guess, and they all were safe! Therefore, on the 9th day of CNY, Hokkien will celebrate this event with sugar cane...... of course with other foods ......
