Hungry Ghost Festival @ Puchong

On Friday night, we were in Puchong for a family dinner. The place is located nearby the Tesco Puchong. We came across this huge Hungry Ghost Festival ceremony. It was quite a scene, a stage and lots of "offerings" were there.

Since I brought my camera, I took a few pictures. I know my mom would scold me for this. We are quite forbidden to do so as it's not nice to take such pictures.

The concert for the "invited", that's why the front row seats were not taken.

Lastly, the burning of the offerings.

Even though I heard much about it, but I haven't really been to many of them. It's nice to see such custom and ritual still around. It was an eye opener.
