Nine Emperor Gods Festival

In Arts & Culture, Chinese, Dessert, Hawker, Malaysian, Nyonya on September 29, 2011 at 2:48 pm

The Nine Emperor Gods Festival (Chinese: 九皇爺; pinyin: Jiǔhuángyé; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Káu-ông-iâ; Cantonese: Kow Wong Yeh) is a nine-day Taoist celebration beginning on the eve of 9th lunar month of the Chinese calendar, which is observed primarily in Southeast Asian countries like Myanmar, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, and also the Riau Islands.Wikipedia

Here in Penang, the entire island is dotted with makeshift vegetarian stalls with a yellow awning or cloth signifying they serve “pure vegetarian” food adhering to the Taoist rules – no garlic, onion, milk and for some, certain green vegetables. “Clean” utensils are also used during this time. A Herbivore in Penang visited one of the longest makeshift vegetarian stalls here in the island located on Madras Lane.
