Hungry Ghost At Permatang Pasir Election Site

With the election campaign getting hotter and also the hungry ghost festival around the corner, two of these Hungry Ghosts that have just been released by the King of Hades found their way to Permatang Pasir, Butterworth.

Ah Kau : Wah, so many flags celebrating our homecoming ah?

Ah Too : Wah Lau leh, how come no Chinese characters on the flags ah? Only logos and they are not in triangle shaped anymore! No direction to follow leh!

Ah Kau : Where is the Kotai?

Ah Too : I hear some loudspeaker noise over there.....lets’ go and see!

Ah Kau : What is the Chinese speaker talking about ah? What is blogger?

Ah Too : That must be the modern Chinese Sai Kong lah (Taoist Priest)! Using microphone to chant some more leh!

Ah Kau : He said everything now online, everything www dot com. Want to do everything must go online leh! Cannot cover up already! Everything can check and post online!

Ah Too : Cannot cover up ah.?.....I heard online got many pictures also no cover up (naked) leh!

Ah Kau : No wonder no Kotai and no makan (food). Must ask my living relatives to burn some PC Notebooks, modem, wifi router, webcam and subscribe Hellnet for us leh!

Ah Too : Ya lor, next year we don’t have to travel to earth again to celebrate Hungry Ghost Festival. Just go online to watch Kotai! Some more got sexy singers with ‘no cover up dresses’ ha ha ha, Jolly good man!

Ah Kau : Instead of Blogger we can become Hellger! Ha ha ha!

Today my angmo colleague ask me. You all burn paper car, paper money, paper gadgets. Why never burn paper food?
I donno how to answer...

I said:" because they are too light! By smelling the food, they will feel full.
Then my angmo colleague said:" you chinese very bad, u guys know "they" cant eat, but still u guys "tempt" them, and after prayer, u guys eat the offerings!!!"

Me become speechless after that!

SJ said...

wenn said...

that's funny..may b could happen oh..

Pete said...

ladyviral : Ha, got Hell Girl also, I thought only got Hell Boy....LOL!

Josephine : ha ha ha, next time you tell him human are the worst hungry ghost.....LOL
Actually for me, I believe that burning all these things are just a ritual to remember the dead!
Every religion has it's own ritual or different way in praying.

Eastcostlife : Remember to subcribe broadband for them also. No broadband no fun. ha ha ha!

SJ : Ya, I love the Mi ku, these are taken from last years' event. I went pass the place just now and saw some miku on the altar. Going to take pictures afterward when the ceremony starts.

Wenn : Ha ha, confused ghost!
