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.

As the Hokkien Chinese tradition,  this Birthday Mee or Noodles is a compulsory dish for the birthday celebrations. The noodles must not be cut or shorten so as the birthday celebrant is ensured of a long, long life. Eggs, shredded chicken or pork, prawns. mushroom and vegetables are added too.

A Simple Selfie Birthday   Leave a comment


A Simple Selfie Birthday
At my age, our birthdays are celebrated at a lower key so as not to attract attention of our Taoist dieties of the Underworld to our current age. Hopefully, they shall not check their “ledgers” to ascertain our ages to see whether the “time is up”. Hehehe, just a joke to share for the day – my birthday. Simple ceremony of small cheese cake-cutting, red eggs (as per Chinese tradition) and Nyonya Lam Mee aka Birthday Mee was observed. Thanks go to Marilyn for the arrangement and to my mum for an angpow (red packet with money). My pet dogs also get one egg each.
Not forgetting on Facebook :
“I must say a big Thank You to my sister, sons, brother-in-law, god-daugther, cousins, nieces, relatives, friends and associates for their kind Birthday wishes as I sing the Beatles’ song of ” When I am 64 …” . Promise – No sad and demoralizing news today. Evening we shall attend a class-mate’s son Wedding Dinner so no Bon Odori again this year. I end this short message by wishing everyone Good Luck and Best Achievement in all your undertakings and a Better Malaysia for the Future.”

Birthday-related act of charity   Leave a comment


Birthday-related act of charity is helping the poor and unfortunate in George Town, Penang.
In my personal opinion, helping the poor and unfortunate people is also equally important apart from the dana at Temples during one’s birthday. Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu.

At Sixty Three,
Weak in the knees,
No more climbing trees,
Living an unaccompanied life, not completely care-free,
Wishing for a Peaceful and Prosperous Malaysia,
Good and honest government for good measure,
No more idiotic comments from our so-called learned politicians,
plus the racially based NGOs, retired people who had seen past actions,
World Peace will be an added bonus,
Great health for all of us from head to anus.

Birthday gifts for my late wife   2 comments


I was sending my late wife – Ang Saw Ai, gifts of a Mansion and a MPV with driver on her 3rd Anniversary of her Bian Kee – Prayers during her birthday (Chinese date of 30th Day of the Eighth Moon of the Chinese Lunar Calendar). Yes, it is coming to 3 years of her untimely departure in November, 2010. Though it is the Buddhist belief of not burning joss paper and paper paraphernalia of things like houses, cars and other materialistic nature but my Chinese and Taoist elements in me made me feel uneasy, so the special Birthday gifts of a Mansion and the MPV. Anywhere, there is no great harm in sending these items which have to be burnt after the Bian Kee Prayers. Hehehe, I might get to get to stay in the Mansion with her and drive the MPV when I should kick the bucket in the foreseeable future. I had bought her favourite Chicken Rice with no sauce and only chicken breast meat. A piece of cheese cake was also offered as it is her birthday. Happy Birthday, dear.
