After 223 years, this is the first time, Sam Toh Tong Temple has done a celebration in partner as the World's 10th Anniversary of Da Bo Gong. Minutes before the celebration kick-off yesterday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., I shot the above photograph when the committee members were posing with the sedan chair of Na Cha. I was lucky to exchange cell phone numbers with Mr. Yow, a member of the Da Bo Gong committee. I promised to send the link to the YouTube video of the temple celebration.


My son, Li De dropped me at the Pin Pin Hiong corner, Melaka's famous Mi Sua Soup restaurant minutes before noon. The blue-white stripes canvas covered the other end of the Blacksmith Lane [ Jalan Tukang Besi ] , a street named after the many cottages created objects from wrought iron heated in the furnace, forged using hammer. Metalsmiths were needed to make iron objects used by the junks since Admiral Zheng He first visited Melaka.



When I've gone near the canvass, a big sedan chair housing the Da Bo Gong come to sight as a steered my steps to the sidewalk. Below is what everyone have seen.
