Hai Ki Xin Lor: You Mean the world to me. Hokkien Play by Saw Teong Hin at Khoo Kongsi

One of my favourite performances was Hai Ki Xin Lor: You Mean the world to me. A Hokkien dialect Play by Saw Teong Hin set in the compound of the famous Khoo Kongsi. It’s semi autobiographical story about family secrets and their relationships with each other. The play is in Hokkien dialect with subtitles. It was a powerful performance, the script was clever and concise. The set was simple yet effective. The audience was captivated for an hour watching this brilliant play in the most beautiful outdoor setting.

There were so much activities over the weekend that I didn’t have time to see them all. I’ve randomly included some photos of the ones I went to

Penang Street art: You can remove me but you cannot take my dreams from me…

Sometimes I still dream...
Sometimes I still dream…Stewart the seagull is a determined bird.

StewART the seagull has been relocated from his home. These are the perils of living in the city. As a tenant, you can be kicked out anytime and replaced. Luckily stewART is a tough and resourceful Bird. He has found a new home and has taken his dreams with him…

Sketch of the day no 320: Old Penang door #6

Old Penang door
Old Penang door

This is a very humble home. You can tell from the narrow facade and low ceilings and simple and basic shapes. The homes of the wealthier traders had wider facades, but generally the houses are narrow but long with one or two courtyards inside for ventilation and to allow light in. The narrow facade is due to a tax which was calculated on the width of the home. In general, the higher the ceiling, the richer the owners. I find the architecture in Georgetown Penang really fascinating. I often play ‘guess the people who live there’ game in my mind.

 

As I was writing this post, I was listening to my mum’s itunes on her computer and this tune came on.

Street Art Penang – another artist strikes the wall!

This is on stewart lane, georgetown, penang. This wall showcases 3 street artists working separately at different times but making a piece that appears collaborative

Get a Life
Sometimes I still Dream……

“Sometimes I still dream” says Stewart the seagull. Stewart the seagull is a dreamer…

“Get a life!” says the house crow swooping down at Stewart the seagull.

UPDATE:

This was located at 75 Stewart Lane, George Town, Penang, Malaysia.
