I am looking for a spouse…..

Came upon this while sauntering in People’s Park on a Saturday.

A group of senior citizens were gathering near the lotus pond. They were neither practising taichi nor dancing. They seem to be discussing and checking with one another about some notes that they were holding in their hands. Where they gathered, there were also lots of laminated papers hanging on the tree trunks, placed on the steps or on the seats.

These senior citizens were actually worried parents who were sourcing for a suitable spouse for their child. And the papers were actually some kind of self-advertisement about one’s gender, age, occupation, place of residence etc. An alternative mode of meeting one’s prospective wife and husband.
