Sisters’ Visit to the Eldest Sister   Leave a comment


Sisters’ Visit to the Eldest Sister

My mother is the second elder in her family of 2 male members and 4 female members.

My eldest maternal aunt was married to her husband in an arranged marriage in Kampar, Perak. Her husband had passed away and her family is made up of 3 members – a daughter and 2 sons. As she is currently unwell, she is staying with her daughter with a domestic helper.

In the first photograph, I was standing next my mother in purple on my right and my fourth aunt from Singapore in floral blouse.

My third aunt is on the extreme right of the group photograph.

The eldest aunt is in the wheelchair.

Note: We are indeed grateful to cousin Khek Ping who drove us all the way to Kampar and back to Penang.

Twa Peh Kong’s Teochew Wayang starts   Leave a comment


Twa Peh Kong’s Teochew Wayang starts

Our part of the Malaysia was badly hit by heavy rainfall a week ago with many low-lying places flooded. My house was unaffected as it is on slightly higher level. However, rain continued to fall on and off – sometimes heavy rains causing a lot of tension and anxiety.

So, last night of Friday, 22 September, 2017 I wrote on Facebook … ” Rain stopped for some time, so maybe go photo-shooting tonight … ” of which I did but quite late at 9.30 pm breaking the monotony of just staying at home and watching TV.

I was told and heard from the Manager of this leading Thai-originated Teochew Sai Yong Hong Wayang Troupe personally that it  shall be performing for the last year in Penang due to economical reason/s. Owing to the low exchange rate of Malaysian Ringgit (RM) to Thailand’s Baht, it is grossly unprofitable to come to Penang to perform even at a higher rate of RM5,000.00 per night’s performance. It is furthermore more profitable to perform in Thailand as the Thai richer Wayang fans will give generous amount of cash to outstanding performers during the performance itself. As the Malaysian audience are usually wage-earners, such cash rewards were practically non-existent locally.

So what you are seeing of these photographs shall be the final few photographs of their performances in Penang as I shall try to catch more moments of their final performances in Penang.
