Photohunt 86: Red

PhotoHunt

3 Jokers in RED celebrating Chinese New Year. The photo was taken before the Lou Sang act in Feb 2006.

During Chinese New Year, Yee Sang is a traditional aspicious dish that symbolises the ushering of good luck, good health, wealth and longevity for the lunar new year. Lou Sang is the act of mixing together the Yee Sang dish.
Wearing Red during Chinese is a tradition believed to inflict fear on the mythical destructive creature known as 'Nian'.

Interesting Note: If you read my previous post, you probably knew that I dyed a portion of my hair gold colour. Thats how my hair looks like 3months after that...
