The Official HardwareZone Sintua Thread

Hi all, new poster here. I'm a long time enthusiast/practitioner/student of Chinese folk religion and ritual activities (the 'sintua [神坛] scene', as some call it).

The sintua scene is so vibrant and widespread in SG; I was thinking of starting a discussion thread about it here, so that fellow sintua buffs might be able to discuss this wonderful aspect of Chinese culture. A lot of misconceptions, ignorant beliefs, etc concerning the sintua scene have been going around; perhaps this thread can be used as an educational tool. I'm more than happy to answer questions, clarify facts and so on.

Pic related; this is me at the temple I normally attend. Let's hear it from all the other sintua people here! :)

He incorporates some Chinese folk religion-type elements in what he does, but that's as far as I'm willing to go with classification.

Journey to the west is as real as lord of the rings.

It is a fiction, yes, but a fiction based on truth.

The Monkey King was being prayed to long before Journey to the West was even written.

Come to think of it, Lord of the rings were inspired by mythical characters as well. Gandalf was inspired by Odin.......etc......

Elves, Dwarves and dragons are quite obvious.....
