Our Family Adventure in Myanmar or Burma ~ Day 1.3 – Saturday, 12 November, 2016
Today was Saturday, 12 November, 2016 when we arrived at Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma). Burmese time was 1.5 hour before Malaysian time.
Tomorrow, I shall feature the ” Night Out at the Black Hat ” – a dinner cum social get-together thrown in honour of my brother-in-law Dennis Tan and sister Cindy Lim by his former classmates, friends and associates in Yangon, Myanmar at the Black Hat – a well-known wine bar and restaurant. My brother-in-law was born in Yangon and this trip is his second home-coming trip back to his home town.
“The Trial at Kaifeng” synopsis:
Li Tianfu, son of a senior magistrate, abuses his power to marry a commoner woman against her will. The presiding magistrate Wang Zuo conducts the case impartially, taken into custody and tried. However, upon hearing the news, the accused’s mother, Lady Li, rushes to force Wang Zuo to overturn his conviction of her son. Wang, being am upright magistrate, refuses.
Tianfu, in a fit of rage, kicks the aggrieved woman’s father to death. Lady Li orders a household servant to murder a witness, but accidentally causes her own son’s death instead. She then accuses Wang Zuo of killing her son.
Exasperated and backed into a corner, Wang Zuo resigns his magistracy, claps Lady Li in chains, and with her in tow goes to petition the Emperor.
