Happy AuGHOST Month!

August is the Happy Ghost Month for the Chinese. It is the time of the year where food offerings, fresh and burnt; ‘hell bank’ money, paper cellphones, and whatever gift possible line up the streets of Singapore to commemorate (?) this month.

According to my Chinese colleague, this is the month when the gates of hell are opened and the ‘ghosts’ are set free and head out for a month of vacation. Living individuals are compelled encouraged to offer food, money, or things the ghost might need to enjoy his month’s VL or else..

Likewise, you are not allowed to say anything nasty or you’re..

This burning ritual photo was taken just now at our office parking lot.

Since I’m not Chinese, August for me is HAPPY GAIL MONTH! Yeah!
