Master Q In Penang

During my days as a kid (decades ago) Master Q comic books were everywhere, in book shops, hair saloons, clinics and even libraries, I still remember that I used to read them whenever I was in my auntie's house because she had lots and lots of them there. Though I am a "banana" (illiterate in mandarin), it never stopped me from flipping over the pages and enlightening myself with Lau Foo Zhi. But now... I don't read them anymore.... I doubt age has anything to do with it cos I still love to read Shin Chan and the Archie comics.

Anyway, back to the topic... while I was in Penang some time ago, this Master Q and Big Potato were on stage in Queensbay Mall... so without hesitation, I snapped and snapped like a small kid reminiscing those happy days....


cute, ain't they...
I wonder whether kids nowadays like these comics or not..
I guess they are not so popular anymore...
