October Luncheon of Penang Class-mates   Leave a comment


October Luncheon of Penang Class-mates

October Luncheon of Penang-based Class-mates of Penang Free School Class of 1964 – 1970 on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Flamingo Hotel Cafe, Tg Bungah, Penang. Our Guest is Mr Wong Weng Choon (in white T-shirt) who now resides in Singapore. He was our school’s gymnast until he went to Japan on an educational scholarship in Kyoto University. He said the Japanese gymnasts were too good and practises without stopping so he gave up.

The Final Act of the Thai Teochew Wayang in Penang   Leave a comment


The Final Act of the Thai Teochew Wayang in Penang

The new show of the Thai Teochew Opera for the last year as they are not coming to Penang anymore due to our low RM and no enough payment after conversion. It was the show on Wednesday 4th October, 2017.  Sad, sigh as it is one of the FINAL Acts for season. Our local people cannot pay such  new sum asked by the Thai Troupe anymore due to  the poor present current economic situation in Penang.  I never ask the price like for a performance in a day or 2 performances a day of this Thai Teochew Troupe but I heard is around RM5,000 to RM6,000 per day usually limited to one performance. They are the better performers with lavish, updated and colourful intricate costumes.

I am hoping to docu-photograph the final performances of this better Thai Teochew Troupe in Penang for future historical records.

Wayang Performers offer prayers to the Moon Goddess 2017   2 comments


Wayang Performers offer prayers to the Moon Goddess 2017

These prayers shall be conducted on the night of the 15th of the 8th moon – the  actual day of the Mid-Autumn Festival. It ends with the burning of Joss Paper as their voluntary rewards to the Diety for the wishes fulfilled successfully.

Modern celebration

The festival was a time to enjoy the successful reaping of rice and wheat with food offerings made in honor of the moon. Today, it is still an occasion for outdoor reunions among friends and relatives to eat mooncakes and watch the moon, a symbol of harmony and unity. During a year of a solar eclipse it is typical for governmental offices, banks and schools will close of extra days to enjoy the extra celestial celebration an eclipse brings.  The festival is celebrated with many cultural or regional customs, among them:

  • Burning incense in reverence to deities including Chang’e.
  • Performance of dragon and lion dances, which is mainly practiced in southern China and Vietnam.
