The week end of the 17 Sep 2016 was the festival of Qi Tian Gong temple in Tiong Bahru . The temple is dedicated to the monkey god.
Outside the temple a scene for a Chinese Opera was set, they are not he photogs friendly Lao Sai Tao Yuan but they were nice enough to let me in and have a few shots back stage.
Nothing much happened for a while them I heard the procession come from afar (while sat in front a beer at Tiong Bahru Club)
One of the interesting parts of the procession was the Indian band; Hindus also worship the Monkey God and this temple is said to have followers from many backgrounds.
The lion was also part of the celebrations.
That was also the opportunity to meet some friends and make some new ones . Thanks so Sylvie for the information on the event.
All shots with Leica M262, Summilux 50mmF1.4 or Summaron 35mmF2.8.
