The Tiger ( ), is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Tiger is associated with the earthly branch symbol .

To celebrate the 1st day of the year of Metal Tiger, I paid a visit to Loyang Toa Pek Kong Temple.

Here are some shots I've taken, just to share with all my readers~ Happy Chinese New Year!!
