Hi, I can’t help but to point out an error here. In your last picture, that wasn’t mahjong that the men were playing. Instead, they were playing a game of xiang qi, or Chinese chess. Mahjong is another game that usually requires four players, and with Chinese characters and other figures inscribed on the tiles.

P.S. I love reading your blog and lusting over your amazing pictures! I stumbled upon your blog and have been a keen follower since.

Hey xin. Thanks for the correction, and thanks for reading the blog. Will correct the errors!
