Traditionally if somebody has unsolvable problems, will be brought to Angkong for solution. Angkong is equavalent to God or Goddess or a bunch of Gods. Therefore whatever you see in red colors that look-alike Angkong, hooray....pye-pye, gao taad chek, taan tua luit. Pye-pye means palm to palm very seriously thinking the imperialism way to earn lots of money while Gao-taad-chek means excellent in education which is also related to earn big money. Taan-tua-luit is a local Penangite's accent to earn lots of money. So when you see anything related to Angkong, hold your palm meantime try to think as imperial as possible and then hopefully the money will come to you.
