Throwing mandarin oranges to wolves in Penang

I posted Chap Goh Meh - Night of the Werewolves last year. It applies again night.

To accompany it I also posted a poem about this auspicious night over at KTemoc Komposes. KT's amateurish ode to Chap Goh Meh goes like this:


Arising from the distant sea,
She casts her silvery beams
on us all below, and the sea
smiles back at her, it seems;

one bright eye, high above,
with her glow bathing us all,
the other eye floating on the
sea as the waves rise and fall;

the girl casts a golden orange,
to the moon goddess in the sea;
praying for Her kind blessing
to grant her blessed matrimony.

Tonight is when yin and yang
are in perfect sweet harmony,
to bring a good man and good
woman together in joyous unity.

Good luck, you werewolves and throwers of mandarin oranges ;-) - see if you can spot me, the one with the longest tongue hanging out, dribbling saliva all over, yeah, the Big Bad Wolf ;-)
