    Redhill area is one of the oldest housing estates in Singapore and the area and atmosphere is still very much 1970s singapore ..... many many tattooed old people sitting around drinking kopi ..... i just feel the air thick with real texture and local culture whenever I am in that area

    I saw this Chinese opera puppet at the Merlion park today, 190710(Mon).

    I’m not sure of the event and when will be the performances.

    Yes, I love the stage by Xin Sai Feng, not all are like this nowadays..raw wooden planks, light bulbs, green canvas roof... so much flavour..

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/redmonsoon/3876906016/

    Another shot where for a sec,after putting down the cam and really try to 'watch' the show, I realized why the attraction. That it was simply just like our current day drama!
    And it made sense and it's wasn't some distant weird noisy stage show that only old folks can understand...Dramas haven't really changed much, well besides violence, nudity & sex that is..lol

    Not had the courage to ask if I may go up to shoot though, is it possible?
    And if you're going, pls don't be an ass, literally,esp. if theres few of u, and block those old folks watching, they're the VIPs and these performances are special to them, show some respect..

    just wondering... are we allowed to take images of the mediums while in their trances? i've taken photos at a temple during vesak day but i think this should be a different thing altogether?

    if ur closely affliated with the temple, then yes ur allowed.

    if ur gonna take, and anyhow use it, its disrespectful to the religion itself.

    check out this guy

    Ronni Pinsler
    he was affliated with the leng hiang tua, which closed. currently, their deity statues reside at the red hill temple. i happened to know him cause of that. initially temple in charge didnt allow him to snap photos of our temple, cause thought he some weird angmoh. but after he identified himself and his affliliation with leng hiang tua, we shared books and texts that we wont otherwise let outsiders see.

    most temples dun really like to spread their stuff outside.

    depends and varies from various temples. but rule of thumb is, dun anyhow use images, credit the temple. best is u send a copy of what you took to the temple and ask for permission first.
