PHOTO HUNTERS: WOODEN

photohunters

This week’s theme is on WOODEN.
I took this shot during the Chinese New Year Street Celebration.
This is one of the stage display set up by the Penang Hokkien Association.
The backdrop depicted how a Chinese kitchen will look like in the olden days.
Other than the WOODEN logs they used as burner for cooking,
you can also see WOODEN walls, WOODEN shelves, WOODEN stools, WOODEN chopboard and also WOODEN pails, etc.
Rattan baskets are also one of the main kitchen wares used for steaming delicious mantou (buns) and meats.

PHOTO HUNTERS: FREE

This week’s theme is on FREE.
I took this shot through a window towards the roof top
where there are quite a lot of swallows flying about in the morning.
Unfortunately, there are only a few photos that can be used
out of hundreds that had been taken.

This is my interpretation of FREE … as in FREEDOM!
As FREE as a bird!

PHOTO HUNTERS: HEAVY

This week’s theme is on HEAVY.
I took this shot during one of the Chinese Opera show where all the actors and actresses will dressed up in traditional costume.
What could be heavier than their HEAVY makeup?
The makeup is so HEAVY that even the spotlight would not reflect any light
on the surface that they had applied.
