The internet at my local network is acting up again as I was trying to upload the last 5 photographs since 10.00 pm last night. Now it is 2.10 pm on Wednesday, 24 August 2016 I has just managed to be successful in uploading the rest of the photographs. My e-mails for blogging had piled up to over 2,500 in numbers. My apologies, folks.

Taboos

As the ghosts and the suffering spirits will come out from the hell to visit their homes during the 7th lunar month (the ghost month), many things should be avoided during this month including the ghost day:

  1. Do not stroll at night.
  2. Do not swim. It is said that drowned evil ghosts might try to drown people in order to find victims for them to rebirth.
  3. As the month is considered to be inauspicious, do not move to a new house, start new businesses or marry.
  4. Do not hang clothes outside at night.
  5. Do not pick up coins or money found on the street and if one does, never bring any home.
  6. Do not step on or kick the offerings by the roadside. If someone were to step on any offerings by accident, he or she should apologize aloud to ameliorate the situation
  7. Do not wear red because ghosts are attracted to red.
  8. Don’t sing and whistle as these may attract ghosts.
  9. Keep away from the walls as it is believed that ghosts like sticking to walls.
  10. If someone is born during the ghost month, avoid celebrating his or her birthday at night. It is better to celebrate during the daytime.
  11. Do not go out at 12 midnight as the ghost may approach you for food and other offerings for them.
  12. Do not open umbrellas in the house. It may attract spirits
  13. Do not take selfies or take videos. Ghost may appear in it. You may never know
  14. Do not sleep facing the mirror or something reflective. It guides the ghosts.

Near the Tan Heritage Jetty   Leave a comment


I was shooting at the embankment near the Tan Heritage Jetty of Weld Quay, Penang before my breakfast this morning of 28 December, 2014. We were planning to go to the “Occupy Beach Street” Event for some photo-shooting. It was low tide at the time and one could easily see the muddy shoreline with Penang channel in the background. Some steamers and boats were seen and in a few photographs you can even see the First Penang Bridge in the faint background. The Penang Bridge connects Penang Mainland to the Penang Island.

Hean Boo Thean Procession 2014   Leave a comment


Hean Boo Thean Procession 2014

When we left the house tonight (11th October, 2014), it was raining so heavily like last Friday. When we reached the road entrance to the 玄母殿(HEAN BOO THEAN) Temple, the rain slowly turned into a light drizzle when the Main Float came out while I put on my rain-coat. Got my other camera and placed under my rain-coat cap. I am off shooting the various floats along the main road, Weld Quay. A few minutes later, the rain stopped completely. What great blessings from Kuan Yin! After shooting a while, we are off to Paya Terubong in the heavy traffic as there is another event of the World Fellowship of Buddhists to record. More ever I am one of the Vice-Chairman of this organization.

Notice the “shy” Dragon with a plastic bag over its face.
