2 – Grown-up Children (below the age of Lunar 12 years old), who tend to become Stubborn, like to Talk-back and starts to Behave strangely - used the Rice, mixed it with the Regular Rice and Cooked it.

Million Thanks to Bro Victor Yue for the Report
Ti Kong Beo 天公庙
Telok Blangah Rd (next to blk.45)
Sun 6 Mar 11
1415H – 1700H
After Man San Fook Tuck Chee, with Yik Han and Kaori, picking up Doris and Nicole along the way, we went to Ti Kong Beo at Telok Blangah Rd. Bro Jave was busy running between doing the prayer rituals for anyone who wants to pray to the Tiger God and “dotting” of new statues (consecration).
Ti Kong Beo has it constant flow of devotees. There was one Indian lady who was going through the pace of making offerings to all the deities of the temple. She also wanted to pray to the Tiger God to get rid of backstabbers and welcome more benefactors. Here, Bro Jave used Hokkien in his ritual but advised her in English. (^^) And since there were a number of “English speaking” Singaporeans, it seemed to fit their needed. I saw another temple member explaining to a young Chinese lady on what Taoism is all about.
Praying to theTiger God is interesting in that one could see people asking for it from all walks of life and at different ages. There was another young lady whom I captured with my camera. (^^) There was a constant queue for the prayer. Here, as part of the offering, one could get two eggs and a small piece of fatty pork, together with five joss sticks, two candles, some joss papers and the important benefactor paper.
Here, the person lighted up the two candles, and then, the joss sticks. Holding the joss sticks and the prayer papers with the benefactor paper and kneeling down (a small kneeling stool was provided), Bro Jave went through the rituals of petitioning the Tiger God to help the person. I think Kaori has this recorded in video. (^^) After the prayer, the person was to walk one round around the corner of the temple, getting into the temple by the side and out by the main door before pasting the benefactor paper on the wall and burning the rest of the papers. As the devotees tried to reach higher, apparently, they pasted beyond the plywood and got on to the wall! (^^)
Another interesting afternoon.
Thanks to Bro Victor Yue for sharing with us the Picture.
In the Picture, was the Dotting Ceremony dedicating to the Black Tiger Deity of Fei Jie Fu (正一龍山飛捷府) - lead by Vabien Lee.
With the Auspicious Day of Jing Zhe Day (辛卯年驚螫日), Vabien requested for the Black Tiger Deity to be dotted and so, while Jave was in Tian Gong Temple (新加坡天公廟) conducting the Jing Zhe Day Honouring, the Black Tiger Deity of Fei Jie Fu was being Enhanced and Dotted.
This Tiger Deity was dotted to assist Heavenly Marshal Zhao Gong Ming (趙公明天君) and also, Heavenly Master Zhang Dao Ling (張祖天師) in Eliminating Negative Energies.
