Move In Procedures
House Move-in Ritual
1. An auspicious date and time is chosen. 2. On the auspicious day, the owner of the home brings some auspicious items into the home:
PACKET OF SALT, RICE, SUGAR, A BOTTLE OF COOKING OIL & A BOTTLE OF VINEGAR
2.1 A packet of salt, rice and sugar. And a bottle of vinegar.
2.2 Other Items:-
CHARCOAL - A red charcoal stove (Optional) - A charcoal (representing gold) wrapped in Red paper. One can bring this in and need not light it up. But if one wants to light up, then do it before the auspicious time. And bring in the red charcoal stove into the house. In this option, the stove has to be kept permanently in the house e.g. kitchen cabinet and must not throw it away.(Optional)
An alternative is to light up the charcoal red-hot and when it is time, transfer the charcoal from the outside of the house to the kitchen stove-top.
- A `huat' quay or self-raising cake (symbolic of a `raise') & or longevity bread (apricot bread). See picture 1: below.
PINEAPPLE - For the Hokkien (Chinese dialect group) purchase of a pineapple (with flower on it). Once the time is right, open the main entrance door and roll the pineapple from the main entrance door into the house. A `pineapple' here represent luck.
BOIL WATER & TURN ON ALL LIGHTS Besides the above, water is boiled immediately after entering the home and all lights in the home are turned on for at least 15 minutes. If one is staying in the house, turn on the `balcony' light or if there is no balcony, the living room light for that night.
RED PACKETS Red Hong Bao packets are also placed e.g. on the kitchen stove and keep a Red Hong Bao in each bedroom's cupboard drawer. The money should be even numbers. For example, it can be 6 cents. For the Hokkien, 6 sounds like luck. For the Cantonese, they may use 8 cents for luck.
