I saw this Pineapple Ong Lai joss stick or incense last weekend (on Chap Goh Mei/last day of CNY when I strolled along the Pitt Street (aka Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling). We are so used with the Gigantic Dragon joss stick but pineapple joss stick? Interesting... First time I came across such a scene. Hence I can't resist but to take one snapshot. :)

That was unusual joss stick! I think people need more "Ong" now since the economy is sliding. What is their next creation?

Wyn said...

wah..macam-macam ada...

twilight zone,
The person who create the joss stick is creative. I wonder how much the joss stick costs. It's so unique :)

Wonder if there's any lokam joss stick or not? Since it's CNY. Oops, CNY over already. Hehehe...

day dreamer,
Luckily u didn't drop your jaw looking at the picture. Did u encounter any unique joss stick in Ipoh? :)

Yeah, kudos to the person who come up with such idea :)

Chen said...

Beautifully done.
Must be quite costly too :)

Oh ya, Sarikei & Pineapple.

I'm bad. It have slipped my mind the connection of pineapple with Sarikei. It's time for me to visit back my beloved hometown again.. I miss the sweet (but mouth cutting) Sarikei pineapple. :)

Kekeke... Wonder if there's any durian joss stick or not? :P

Wow, I've never seen something remotely similar!

Most interesting, and thanks for sharing.

Btw, our blog add is now

Take care Doc, and hope you have a happy and safe week. said...

Next will be dragonfruit?

Chen said...

Thanks Lydia :)

Wah, u so "ong" wan ah?
Then those surrounding u will automatically become Ong too? ;)

Kkkkkkk.. I think it's more appropriate for Chinese people to make "yuan" sign instead of ang moh currency sign, summore it's CNY mah :P

You are mostly welcome. Thanks for the update. Sorry, I didn't blog hop much lately. Hopefully can do some catch up this coming weekend. Miss out a lot on blog space the last few weeks..

It will be more interesting if there's Durian joss stick :)
