Kelantan: Cheng Beng

Went back to Kelantan for the annual "Cheng Beng" festival. Notice the miniature flags on the grave? Guess my "uncles and aunty" beat me to it this year. Don't get me wrong, its not a competition to see who performs the ancestral prayers first, the point is we are supposed to do it together!!

Mom and dad cleaning my grand-parent's grave.

Notice the yellow boxes? It contains paper clothing, shoes and other necessities. Basically items that you would need if you were alive. Oh ya, not to forget the bags of "hell" money.

Stacking the boxes on "hell" money to be burned...

The entire process took roughly 3 was so hot that my shirt was soaked!
