Early of June, we have a celebration for God of Jee Pek（二伯爺）near by perak road in Penang, Malaysia. The authority members of the temple will usually setup a stage performing either traditional chinese opera or live band singing.
|1. A father and his daughter are sitting together watching the traditional chinese opera.|
|2. If you can't understand what we sing, don't worry, we got the subtitle now.|
|3. Nowadays, there are not much people enjoy the traditional opera now compare to old days. |
We rather watching youtube at home.
|4. They claim that the show is for God to watch, |
therefore there is always facing the stage towards the front entrance of the temple.
|5. At old days, there are always a groups of stalls selling drinks and snacks tag along with the stage. |
But for today, the stage will be setup near the stalls.
|6. The music playing for the opera are from this 'live band'.|
|7. I like the way they express the feeling through the body sign and the face.|
|8. Get to know one of the actor, he invite us to the back stage.|
I asked, where are you from? He answered, we are all from Siam.
|9. The actress staring at us, she looks so fierce. |
So scared, we quickly shoot few shot and then leave the back stage as fast as possible.
|10. There are two temples around our neighborhood, and this group is from China.|
