Grandpa excited to recieve his ang pow.

 

Joss sticks are a type of incense used in many East Asian and Southeast Asian countries, traditionally burned before a Chinese religious image, idol or shrine. They can also be burned in front of a door, or open window as an offering to heaven, or devas. In modern days, joss sticks can be used for any purpose, such as to enhance the smell of a room, or to light fire crackers.

The wealthiest temple in Singapore.

 

The first one who plants the joss stick in the temple is granted good luck for the year.
