For those who really interested in shooting Hungry Ghost Month, you may get the full list from the association behind Jelutong Police Station in Penang..

But the list is fully written in Chinese...

*I'm forgot whats the association name, but its located among the houses, and can be found easily.

Maybe we can organise a shooting to capture all this moment. Maybe someone might get lucky to capture 'them'.
