"A Paper Butler ?" Top 5 Page for this destination Penang Favorite Tip by kenyneo

Favorite thing: Do you need anything madam ? Coffee or tea ? Well meet Ah Choi , my late aunty's servant in the Underworld.

Anyway ...these colourful paper effigy is supposed to serve the deceased , just like the Terracotta warriors ( where the servants and the bodyguards have to be buried alive with the deceased king ). So I guess this is no so extreme comparatively. But one thing for sure they dont come cheap !

Well I guess the richer you are , the more paper servants you will see .LoL
