Do you recall sitting on a makeshift bench, thoroughly enthralled by the Cantonese wayang (operas) and their elaborate costumes? Or reminisce about setting off fire crackers during Chinese New Year? Do memories of Thimithi (fire-walking ceremony) take you back to Chinatown’s Sri Mariamman Temple where male devotees boldly sprinted barefoot across hot burning charcoal?
