Puppet Show

This is real rare nowadays. But at the temple at Telok Ayer Street, whenever there is a deity birthday or somebody strike lottery from the number pasted on the urn, there will be a puppet show.

The puppet show is a mini version of the Chinese Opera Stageshow and the actors and actress are puppet hemmed by puppeters. This is a dying breed and soon  it will go the way of the dodo bird. And why should it be so? Cos nobody is watching and even the puppeteers look so bored just singing their parts.

But still it is a visual feast and I will be sad to see this disappear from the local scene but disappear it will. Not a question of if but when!
