Friday Shoot Out Yard Objects.


http://ann-mythoughtsandphotos.blogspot.com/2009/07/mytownshootoutblogspotcomyard-objects.htmlThis week, some of my photos are posted to my other blog. I am travelling and don't have internet facilities all the time. I hastility made this mistake.

This is a suburban house in a Malaysian small town. It is one storey. You will see the little red rectangular box with dragons on the roof. Most Chinese practise some form of ancestor worship. They worship their deceased ancestors whom they believe will bless and protect them.

I took this photo because the house has a Malaysian flag on top of the door. You may not be able to see it. The colours of this flag is like the American flag, red, blue and white. It also has stars and stripes.

There is a yard where the residents plant fruits and vegetables. You can see a fruiting pineapple at the gate. Pineapple sounds like properous in Chinese. So this is such a favoured fuit, that they not only grow it, they hang paper models of the fruit from the ceiling of the car porch.

You will also see the hagh TV aerials. The residents like to watch Chinese TV broadcasted from Singapore.

I couldn't see the flag but very typical Msian house...i live in a neighbourhood mainly of chinese, so unless they are Christians, every house has their mini prayer house.
