七月廿八的夜晚

中元普渡,盂兰胜会 Hungry Ghost Festival
大雨过后的汕头街

不知不觉中,已经是农历七月廿八了。明天就要关鬼门了,而我也足足陪伴了大士爷一个月。这段期间,因工作的缘故我得到了很多关于盂兰盛会的知识,而这一切都多亏了我有一位好老师。
今天,也因为工作的关系来到了汕头街。不过这次不是关于盂兰盛会的,而是要记录大二爷伯的千秋(黑白无常的生日)。原本被告知是下午五点开始的,怎知抵达时负责人则说是七点才开始祭拜。于是,我们便到对面的美园饮食中心等待。没多久,就下起大雨了。雨一直下到晚上八点才停,上图是停雨后拍的《雨后汕头街》。接下来就是我开工的时候了。

Time passes quickly and soon it is the 28th day of the 7th lunar month. I have been accompany the God of Hades for a month due to my job and I have learnt a lot of things regarding the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival. It all thanks to a great teacher I have. Today, I went to Kimberly Street to carry out my task. However, this time it is not about the Chinese Hungry Ghost festival. It is the celebration for the birthday of the Hei Wu Chang and the Bai Wu Chang. We was told that the ceremony was started on 5pm but when we reached there, the person in charge told us that they will start on 7pm. And so, we went to Bee Hooi coofee garden to kill our time. Soon after that, it rains. It didn't stop until 8pm. When the rain stopped, I took a photo of the Kimberly Street. And after that, my job begins.

大约九点多,我把我的工作做完了。原本想直接就回去的,不过心想明天就是盂兰盛会的最后一天了,所以最后还是决定要以个人身份去看一看正在举行中的盂兰盛会。上图是椰脚街区的盂兰盛会。

About 9pm, I have finished my job. I thought to go back home straight but I was thinking that tomorrow will be the last day of the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, so I have decided to go have and a look at the still on-going Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival. The picture above is the Pitt Street Hungry Ghost Festival.

椰脚街区的盂兰盛会一共筹备了六晚的歌台演出。之前去看歌台时都是以工作身份去观看的,而今天我却是作为真正的观众观赏歌台。果然,没有“工作”这两个字挂在身边感觉就是不一样。我非常地投入和享受今晚的歌台,整个人随着音乐舞了起来。

The Pitt Street Hungry Ghost Festival has organised a total of 6 nights concert. Previously, I went to see the concert as a surveyor, which is my job, but today I was a real audience that was enjoying the night as how the other does. Really, without the 'job' tittle at my side, I was totally enjoying the concert and my body was dancing with the music.

这位吉他手吸引了我的目光。他实在是太帅了!

This guitarist has grabbed my attention. He is just too rock!

明天就是盂兰盛会的最后一天了,所以我一定会好好去欢送大士爷的!

Tomorrow is the last day of the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, so I will definitely go to send back the God of Hades to where he came from!
