As I walked back home from my night class, there were many people by the roadside lighting up joss sticks and burning of paper.
The hungry ghost festival is here again.
Buddhists Taoists believe that during this month, the gates of hell opens up and the spirits of the dead goes back to earth to seek food and visit their living relatives.
There’s not much to eat in hell. Thus on this month, you will see plates of buns, cakes and fruits left by the roadside. You will also see people burning articles, like hell money, even paper version of television and shirts as they believe that these articles will materialize for their deceased loved ones.
Its was rather somber atmosphere but at the same time, eerily peaceful as the wind gently caressed my face.
Will I still be remembered when I am gone?
