It is Nine Emperor Gods Festival Again

It is that time of the year again...the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. The Nan Tian Gong (南天宫) temple in Ampang have been busy getting ready for the festival since two weeks ago. This year the festival falls on the 4th - 13th of October 2013.
All systems go at Ampang Nine Emperor Gods Temple for the festival that begins tomorrow with the pole raising ceremony in the morning and the procession and invitation in the evening.

The quiet and peaceful Ampang New Village is in the process of transformation into a busy, bustling and noisy place as the festival approaches. This year, I will take time-lapse shots of the festival to share with my readers.

Together with Cheryl Hoffmann and Robert Pike, we hope to be able to capture, compile and render an exciting and comprehensive time-lapse video at the end of the festival. For the time being, here is a small clip from me of the activity around the temple leading to the eve of the festival.
