Wayang Flash-back – the Teochew Opera at Ayer Itam, Penang
This series of photographs was taken at the Teochew Opera playing at Twa Peh Kong’s 2014 Birthday Celebrations at Ayer Itam town, Penang. We were photo-shooting with a few friends and it was drizzling slightly. Anyway, we did our best for the night and ended up with these shots which I had just edited. Hope you all like these photographs. Happy viewing.

Local Malaysian Cantonese Opera was seen performing at two places in George Town, Penang during the Hungry Ghosts Festival 2014. It is often seen at Jalan Samak Phor Thor Celebrations since its inception many years ago. This year of 2014 saw the revival of the Cantonese Opera being performed at the Peoples’ Park Phor Thor Celebrations or the Hungry Ghosts Festival for 3 nights.

Canon Photomarathon 2014 ~ Theme 3 ” Seasonal “   Leave a comment



Canon Photomarathon 2014 ~ Theme 3 ” Seasonal ”

It was quite a fun time at the Canon Photomarathon and got another interesting series of photos for the Theme 3 – Seasonal, while photo-shooting for the theme – the King of Fruits, Durian usually enters the mind, where to find? Seasonal Sales? Seasonal weather ? Rain? Haze? Birds but no egret was seen at Gurney Drive. Went around town but no durians found along Macalister Road and Anson Road. Then hit on our memory, there is a shop recently opened along Prangin Road near the old Seah Boey area. Yes, it still has some durians catered for tourists. Musang King durians are still available at RM35.00 per kilogramme. Too rich for me, in price. Anyway, the boss was a friendly man and let us shoot these photographs for the contest. Thank you, sir.

Thai Songkran Festival and Burmese Water Festival 2014 in Penang, Malaysia   Leave a comment


I came back home wet but my camera is still all right even with a few wet encounters from the Thai Songkran Festival and Burmese Water Festival 2014 which are happening now at Thai Chaiya Mangalaram Buddhist Temple and Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple at Burma Lane. However, we need to remember to conserve water too in this joy of celebrations as Malaysia is experiencing the worst in 15 years. Even part of the wettest town in Malaysia, Taiping also faced water rationing. Water rationing had started in Selangor and Negri Sembilan states. However, Penang with the multi-religious, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic background has overcome such problem quite easily. It started to rain quite consistently these few weeks. It pays to pray!
