Chap Goh Mei 2013 Part I

Chap Goh Mei is a festival that celebrate on the 15th day of Chinese New Year (CNY). It also marks as the end of CNY celebration. At that day, I had went to my grandma house for family gatherings.

In Labuan, it has 4 stations of Chap Goh Mei exhibition while I just went to 2 stations which are station 2 and station 3 because both stations near with my grandma’s house.



I will write about Station 3 first because it was the first station that I had went to.

As you can see, the station was not full of people because the performance of lion dance and the God tour had not start so this is the good times for photo shooting.


On exhibition's table has 2 big gold pineapples.




The red eggs
In exhibition, the food that you cannot miss out was cake. This year is the year of snake so many cakes will add the picture of snake no matter is 2D or 3D. Some of the cakes are so real and beautiful.


This cake let me think of a movie title “Legend of White Snake” (白蛇传). How about you?


Do you ever see the brown color of snake? 


In this exhibition, you will see lot of red color like red fishes (as above) because red color is the lucky color for Chinese.


This year is 2013 year so the cake of snake also has this number on it.


This red snake cake is a  type of cartoon snake. Cute!!!


The snake crawls with the stick.


You see, red color again. Those are the red color family of turtle. Look so sweet!!!


Snake make from the pieces of mandarin orange. Creative!!!




Use sunflower seeds or peanut to become a few Chinese word.


The big joss sticks are burning.

After finished with Station 3, next station was Station 2.
