We met a nice shopkeeper in a very nice local small woodcraft shop. In his shop, there is various wood handcraft, most of them are flowers and animals or insects with a different meaning. Some are legend characters, such as dragon and dragon's brothers, each of them has its task, some guards fortune, some guards safety, and some guards family. We choose one with very delicate work and good meaning for our family home. Nowadays many of the items are produced by machines but it was the stories he told us and the environment that made us purchase our decoration.

A very big family house(祠堂）located in the important location of the village, in the old-time, it is the so-called political center of the village. Villagers are mostly from the same family root. All the important meetings and decisions were released from here. It had the other function as a family court. The misbehaved villagers will be questioned and punished here to give a warning to others.
