An artist gets her puppets ready for the show during the Chinese New Year celebration in Singapore. The show's title roughly translates to The First and the True Princess. Neither of us could communicate with each other, with the puppeteer and her companions speaking only Mandarin (I suspect it was Hokkien). There were no passers by. After waiting for a while someone passed by and in a broken English translated the title and left quickly.
