We made a day trip back to hometown for lunch, and passing Ipoh town. I made a short detour to Tow Boo Keong Temple (怡保斗母宫) where the largest celebration of this festival takes place around Ipoh region.

I decided to show Christine the Red Tortoise Buns made for this festival. There are few stores making the buns on location. So devotees can buy steamed bun (ready to eat) or cold one (for prayer).
