Photo-shooting continues for the Festival of the Hungry Ghost
Last night we were at two Tai Soo Yah’s locations – Batu Lanchang Market and Acheen Street, Penang. Our favourite Teochew Opera was performing the Final Part of the Performance from the previous night at the Batu Lanchang Market. We shot until 10.30 pm and we drove down to Acheen Street in the Heritage Enclave to catch the carrying of the Tai Soo Yah image from the Acheen Street Tai Soo Yah location to the Tan Jetty. It was drizzling now. A Gotai or Modern Singing performance was at this location. We waited patiently as there was also a ceremony where the Tai Soo Yah medium was performing. After this ceremony was over, the Committee Members/Organizers started to carry the Tai Soo Yah image from here down to Tan Clan Jetty area at Weld Quay by hand. As it was raining heavily now, we decided to call it a night and went home without observing the burning of the image.
We still have a few nights to shoot before the Festival of the Hungry draws to a close.With age catching up, photo-shooting seemed to be a more difficult task than normal. The Festival of the Hungry Ghost is drawing to an end soon and I have minimal energy to see to the very conclusion. Anyway I shall try my best to successfully end the Festival of 2015.
