learn lion dance

Many people have the misconception that one needs to know martial art in order to be in a lion or dragon dance troupe. It's good to have a martial art background but it is not compulsory. I went to Wisma Chin Woo on Sunday afternoon to check out the young boys and girls going through ... continue reading »

Memory Lane Ipoh

Memory Lane is a Sunday morning "market" that occupies Jalan Horley and Jalan Lim Bo Seng. Due to the sheer number of traders, some spill over to adjacent side roads. This morning market, more like a junk market (pasar karat), has about four entrances/exits. Business starts picking up from 7am until noon. The entire area ... continue reading »

As a Chinese, the Hungry Ghost Festival is part and parcel of my life.

Spotted this car, Le Seyde, by Japanese car maker, Mitsuoka, on the road somewhere in Ipoh Garden a few days ago. With its classic design, it sure attracted lots of attention, including mine!

Seloka Hari Raya Dance

Still in a Raya mood? I am. Therefore, I am sharing with you photos of a Hari Raya dance performance that I attended just last evening. The 30-minute show brought to us by "Inspiration Studios" at Kinta City was very energetic and entertaining. Wish I could share a few more photos but the curtains blocked ... continue reading »

Hantu Gangster

Hands up if you have already watched "Hantu Gangster". Well, it's a new local production by Namewee (real name: Wee Meng Chee), with a star-studded cast from Supermodel Amber Chia to Alleycat Dato' David Arumugam. Actually, this cast line-up reminds me of Hong Kong Chinese New Year productions where they would group all of today's ... continue reading »
