Throughout the month of Ramadan, Tok Dalang Mohd Jufry Yusoff, 61, has been shuttling between his home in Penang and Kuala Lumpur for a series of wayang kulit (shadow puppet play) performances.

Making the four-hour drive from his home in Sungai Dua to KL during the fasting month was undoubtedly exhausting. Still, the sexagenarian isn’t complaining as he enjoys putting on the shadow puppet performances, especially after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
