The Red Lion
Yesterday, while my girlfriends and I were enjoying our dinner at one of our favorite hanging out place, we got to see a live lion dance performance. At this time around, lion dance troupe usually goes door-to-door to ‘perform’. It is believed that having the lion dance troupe to ‘visit’ your house/shop would bring good luck apart from casting away the evil spirits.
It was an enjoyable scene to witness and I was amazed at the same time surprised to find out the lion dance troupe members were mostly young children. I find it as one way of preserving an intangible culture and the tradition should pass on to the newer generation.
