Tin Hau birthday
Since Sunday lion/dragon teams have been noisily parading through the streets on and near the waterfront of a little island in the South China Sea.
Hither and zither. . . morning, noon and night.
Why? To celebrate the birthday of Tin Hau (Goddess of the Sea).
Yes, but Tin Hau's birthday is 25 April this year.
Ah, but on this little island in the South China Sea we march to our own drum.
