Back to Teochew Opera during the Hungry Ghost’s Festival

Back to Teochew Opera during the Hungry Ghost’s Festival on Sunday, 21 August, 2016 after photo-shooting the burning of the Tai Soo Yah image in Bukit Mertajam on last Friday and the Lim Jetty, Penang on last Thursday. Saturday was rest day or rather rest night as watching the thrilling Olympics Game of Badminton. Malaysian Dato’ Lee Chong Wei was playing in the final for an Olympic Gold Medal against China’s Chen Long. Sadly, our Malaysian Champion lost.

From The Times of India

“RIO DE JANEIRO: China’s Chen Long stepped out of compatriot Lin Dan‘s shadow to spoil Lee Chong Wei‘s hopes of a golden Olympic swansong and win the men’s badminton title on Saturday.

The Malaysian’s conqueror at successive world championship finals in 2014-15, the rangy Chinese was majestic in the 21-18 21-18 title-decider, soaking up fierce pressure and smashing through Lee’s defences at a heaving Riocentro.

In a career dominated by near-misses, Lee lost his third successive final after being beaten by Chinese great Lin for the gold in Beijing and London.”

The Second Night of Wayang Photo-shooting   Leave a comment


The Second Night of Wayang Photo-shooting

This is the Second Night of Wayang Photo-shooting but I only took a short hour to capture the performance as I was not in a good mood owing to very unfair comments of calling other photographers. There is a Public Wayang schedule compiled by Hungry Ghost Festival Committee so nothing is secretive about the Wayang Performances in Penang and Mainland at all! Whoever photographers that appear at these Wayang Performances are no problem of mine at all! Anyway these Wayang Performances are open to the members of the public. Furthermore, I was never keen in the photo-shooting of the Wayang performers putting on make-up.
