The Dragon of Kampong Sar Kong... Fire from within...
On the top of the main door of a village house reads 颖川 (yǐng chuān), to be read from right to left, traditional Chinese writing, which meant the people that are living in there carries the family name Chen or 陈. In Chinese this is called 堂號.

The dragon is made from straws from the padi (also known as Straw Dragon or 槄草龙). This Fire Dragon as part of its traditional temple event. The event starts with the temple members and devotees lighting the big joss sticks and stick them firmly onto the head, body and tail of the dragon. There was also the pearl ball which is also stuck with joss sticks.
