Every Chinese business and home will have a place of worship. An altar to ask the gods for wealth, protection and prosperity as well as give thanks by simply burning joss sticks. The more elaborate, the better they believe. Some people place fruits and cakes in front of the deities. However, this is a simple one. I found it hanging outside a small unopened store. I guess it doesn't matter how elaborate altars have to be as long as our prayers are answered.
