A special year calls for special wishes.
Throngs of devotees spent the eve of Chinese New Year at the Loyang Tua Pek Kong Temple to offer joss sticks and prayers for the new year.
The crowd, which was mostly made up of families, started turning up from 9 pm.
They clasped joss sticks, their heads bent in prayer, and bought good luck tokens from the temple stall.
Many bought either a golden rice barrel or a rice bag, both containing rice blessed by temple monks.
