Chinese Opera at Cheng Ho Teng Temple

As a child, I had always enjoyed accompanying my aunt to watch Chinese Opera. The colourful costumes and make-up of the artists always fascinate me. Although I may not understand the storyline, Chinese Opera was a feast to my ears and eyes.

It has been many years since I saw one. So I was fortunate to catch one last weekend in my hometown, Melaka. The performers were from Fujian, China. Thus, the opera was performed in the Fujian dialect. I brought my nieces and nephews along as they have never seen one. Now I also view the performers with my lens and find them as interesting subjects to capture!

"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
