Hanging Up the Lantern

I was up early this morning to go out for photo shoot. Fortunately I caught this man also up early to hang up the lantern at the Baba Nyonya Private Museum in Heeren Street. This private museum is housed in a traditional Straits Chinese house. The lantern that the man is holding is hand-painted. There are very few such lantern makers in Melaka these days.

I have posted another photo of a beautiful lantern in an earlier post.

Do you like lantern? What type do you like?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
