中元节 (Zhong Yuan Jie) or Hungry Ghost Festival

This happens opposite my place every 中元节 (Zhong Yuan Jie) or Hungry Ghost Festival. This year it starts from 10 Aug to 7 Sep. On the last day they have this auction, getai (Singing, usually popular renditions of chinese and hokkien songs), and of course dinner.

It's very noisy! Not good if your kids are taking exams like my son preparing for his 'O' Levels.
