Hungry Ghost month came & went. I don't miss the ashes flying about or watching out where I walk in case I trip over some offering. But I do look forward to the performances. Typically you either get the Getai, which I'd talked about here or the Chinese Opera.
There were several going on in my neighborhood throughout the month.
I asked around & made sure we went for one of the Opera Performances.
Not quite your Orchestra band
The Girl enjoyed the costume & the makeup.
Since we don't understand Teochew,
we made up stories on what they were saying & doing on stage
Meanwhile the auction & feasting carried on.
The performance was indeed for the ghosts & a handful of us.
