Tortoise as Offering (1)

These beautiful coloured tortoise paus (a kind of steamed bread served in dim sum restaurant) were offered by devotees to the Nine Emperors God. There are auspicious wording such as longevity, good fortune and prosperity written on the tortoises' shells. These are the prayers that the devotees made as they offered these paus.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
