2016.3.5 驚蟄 | 永豐街 wing fung street
this morning went past this earth god shrine in wanchai. what a surprise to discover someone just finished making offerings to the “white tiger”.
according to chinese lunar calendar, hibernating insects awaken today. one of the rituals is to make offering to the ‘white tigers’ (even though they are yellow here). the purpose is to scare away all the bugs and evils. note, pork lard is offered to the tigers and rice and green beans are scattered to feed the street spirits.
