For the whole seventh lunar (25 July 2006 to 24 August 2006), the Chinese believe that the gates of Hades will open and departed souls will return to the human world for reunions to seek salvation.
During this period, one sees that shelters are set up in fields, town centres and places with high Chinese population. And some have stages for Chinese Operas to entertain both humans and ghosts.
On the 15th day of the seventh lunar month, the Chinese pray to their ancestors as an act of filial piety.

I m at work today till 12 noon, kinda bored cause the cloudy weather, I guess I will just stay at home, take some good rest & surfings.
I love to listen to podcast, penanghokkien.com is one of my favourite , I m a guest on the show for once ! talking about Rice dumpling festival in Malaysia.
I will introduce some other cool podcasts next time, its ideal for killing times. Especially for the lonely heart person like me.
