Ok, so getai performances this Hungry Ghost month will not be allowed during, before or after election rallies, say the cops. But this is probably a warning shot to the opposition rather than the ruling party, because from the looks of it, the police will be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a PAP rally and a wayang. Here’s why:
(1) Usually pretty empty (especially the front 2 rows)
(2) Main crowd: uncles and aunties (by the busloads, got free makan even better)
And (horrors) Xiaxue makes her appearance!
