Kwan Vai Meng(R) talks with a fish vendor in Macao, south China, Dec. 9, 2019. Kwan Vai Meng, 55, makes a living on selling fish like his grandfather and father. He is the vice-chairman of a fish trade association. The association organizes annually the traditional Drunken Dragon Festival on the eighth day of the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar. The Drunken Dragon Festival features Chinese drunken dragon performance, sacrifice offering, as well as providing dragon boat rice to audiences. It is a traditional cultural event for praying for safety and prosperity of Macao's fishing industry. Kwan is trying to record the tradition of drunken dragon dance. Speaking of Macao in the past 20 years, Kwan said the increasing number of the tourists coming here has impressed him the most. "This has brought great changes to Macao," said Kwan. "As there are now more industries for people to work in, it offers people a wider choice of jobs." (Xinhua/Cheong Kam Ka)
