Juggling Act


Went shopping in 1Utama again yesterday. Finally had managed to make a purchase of clothing for CNY (it is compulsory in our Asian culture). But as it was relatively cheap and I can wear all of these clothes during normal, non-festive occasions, I'm not complaining.

There was a performance by a troupe of China imported acrobatic performers in the centre court yesterday. I marvel at how flexible these young kids are, and how poised and composed they are as they perform. They're simply naturals. This juggling act had the crowd clapping and cameras clicking (mine was one).

How does China get so many acrobats. I remember in Las Vegas they had a troupe of Chinese acrobats at Circus Circus. And very young kids there too. Wonder if they lose some of their childhood having to work like this?

simple american: I remember watching a documentary on folk in China who actually send their young children to be trained as these acrobats in hopes that they will have a better life than their parents. It's hard training and I think they do lose that sense of innocent childhood when they work so hard to earn a living.
