Yue Hai Ching Temple is one of the oldest Taoist temples in Singapore. It was started in 1826 by the Teochew community and is also known as Wak Hai Cheng Bio in Teochew. The present building at 30B Philip Street was built in the 1850s and gazetted as a national monument on 28 June 1996. The temple received a bian e (a horizontal board with an inscription on it) from Emperor Guang Xu of the Qing dynasty in 1907, an honour accorded to only one other temple in Singapore, Thian Hock Keng Temple (at Yueh Hai Ching Temple @ Phillip Street)

#Foodporn : #Traditional #Heritage #Chinese #Teochew #Dessert :
“Orh Nee” or Teochew Yam Paste with #pumpkin and #gingko nuts.

From Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香园甜品 . I was in #Chinatown and wanted a dessert so I #googled. This was top of search results so I googled map my way to Temple Street to find….they’re now close on Mondays! Since I missed out on this dessert at a dinner last week, I made my way to a nearby branch - at Chinatown Point!

When I was there, I was torn between this, ahboling or the sesame paste. This was pretty good even though they skip the traditional lard! So it wasn’t oily and not too sweet. Generous portion of gizmo nuts and pieces of pumpkin.

I know next to nothing about #Taoism so it was interesting learning about the religion and its practises and rituals. For example, the one New thing I learnt tonight was that the deities were associated with the stars as well.

" The stars, planets, moon, and sun are important Taoist astronomical symbols inherited from prior Chinese religion.  The Chinese had, from a very early date, a highly developed knowledge of astronomy.  The Great Dipper (Ursa Major) is central to the Taoist tradition.  The Pole Star, the primary star of the Dipper, is the residence of Taiyi.  To return to the One is to return, on one level, to the Pole Star.  It is the place where all things begin and to which all things return." http://www.patheos.com/Library/Taoism/Ritual-Worship-Devotion-Symbolism/Symbolism.html

" Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and Chinese folklore.
Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it. (at Bukit Merah View)
