Chinese Influence, Singapore
The Chinese funeral ceremony and the procession of the dead depends upon the financial resources of the family. The burial of the dead is a very serious matter to the Chinese, they believe that improper funeral arrangements will cause bad fortune.
Special clothing must be worn by the family members of the deceased. The children and daughters-in-law wear black with a sackcloth hood while the grandchildren wear blue.
Pls DO NOT stick your chopsticks into your food. If you need to rest them, leave them on the chopsticks rest or by the side of your plate or bowl.
If the table setting includes two spoons, remembber to use the chinese porcelain spoon for eating and the silver one to dish out food.
After 4 years in Singapore, this is the first time I saw chinese opera.
In penang, chinese opera is a kind of worship to God. It is quite common and which everyone can watch for free. You can either carry your own chair and sit in front of the stage or if the temple happened to have a bench, just borrow one.
I saw chinese opera in China Town, happily go and take the picture. Before I did that, a guy stop me and said "ticket"..
Har?.. oh.. no ticket..
So have to round to the back stage to take this picture.. too bad..
