1. Chinese – Foreign countries 2. Chinese – Social life and customs – Indonesia 3. Chinese – Indonesia – Social conditions Cap Go Meh, known as Zhang Yet Ban to the locals, is closely associated with the street cleansing ritual (sei lu) performed the day before. The network between temples and tatung represents an important social affiliation in Singkawang community. Sin Ming San (or temple celebration) is the occasion for temples and tatung to rekindle their ties and strengthen their rapport. Rather than competing on prowess, the tatungs show mutual respect. This book hopes to present Cap Go Meh of Singkawang as not just a one-off mass ritual performance. It is a tradition embedded in the belief systems of the Hakka Chinese and Dayak of Singkawang.
