Story by OH CHIN ENG

It’s nice to see some attention paid to Hong Kong St Tow Boh Keong!  The temple is finally getting some recognition as one of the oldest Nine Emperor Gods temples in SE Asia! This story about piercings and Master Khoo on Hong Kong St. showed up in the Star Online on Oct 12th.

Here is the image that we put up on the street during Georgetown Festival 2013.  The photo is 9’x6′,  and was placed in front of an unused shoplot on Hong Kong St. The larger-than-life image invited viewers to go right up close to it and imagine what that moment was like for the piercer and the medium.
