The mask on the building was new. It was not there the last time I was in Chinatown. It must have been a while. The same type of masks were found hanging as lanterns in a shop nearby. They are colourful. I remember I loved watching Chinese Opera in street fairs when I was young. I could not understand what was said or followed the story but I was mesmerised by the noise, the colours of the costumes and the make up. That seems like ages ago.
