Hungry Ghost Festival Stage Performance in Penang 2010 (Pepper Estate)

Hungry ghost festival in 2010 was from 10th August to 7th September. Every year, local Chinese will have a ritual ceremony and stage performance during the festival. At the place where i growth up, Pepper Estate, two nights of Chinese Opera and two nights singing performance have been held at the entrance of the housing area. I missed the Chinese Opera part as i was going somewhere else with my parents and i almost miss the singing part. When i reach home from outside, the singer has only two songs left, so, i ran down to the entrance with my camera and take some photos of the performance, haha. 

I had missed the festival for few years in a row (can't really recall how many years) due to studying in other places such as Kedah, Kelantan, Sarawak and Adelaide. This time, during my one week holiday in Penang, i take the opportunity to take some photos and share with everyone the unique annual event of Penang.
