It is indeed quite rare to see such Puppet Show in George Town with the Chinese dialect in Teochew. This type of Puppet Show is from Bukit Mertajam and made its appearance in George Town’s Wayang circuit a few years back. I had actually missed shooting this Puppet Show with the Puppet Mistresses ( sorry not Masters as females are in control ) last year as it was raining then and the show also ended. I was busy during the July 2011 George Town Festival and also missed the opportunity of photographing them. Perhaps I shall go and shoot again tonight.
