Eye | Land | View


A little island in the South China Sea begins its annual Bun Festival tomorrow with Cantonese opera at the temporary bamboo/tin opera house newly erected in front of Pak Tai Temple.

A couple of days from now the place goes "vegetarian", although what counts as vegetarian is somewhat idiosyncratic. Oysters, anyone?

This year, the pièce de résistance -- actually, there are two: the procession through the village and "bun climb" -- is on Sunday (29 April 2012) (whoops) Saturday (28 April 2012).

Just so you know.
