Jiu Fen

Jiu Fen

Apparently this place is called Jiu Fen – Chinese for 9 portions. There used to be 9 Households on this mountain and when they went down the mountain for grocery shopping, they used to always buy 9 portions, with the passing of time, everyone then called this place Jiu Fen because of the 9 portion of items which they always bought.
