As reported in the Malaysia latest news, this year the temple committees organising Phor Tor (Hungry Ghost Festival) celebrations in Penang have been advised to stage Chinese operas instead of stage performances by sexy showgirls
Yes, come each Hungry Ghost Month, especially in Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, the temple organizing comittees would engage scantily-clad Chinese girls gyrating and singing on the makeshift stages. Two years ago, in Singapore, they even included stage pole dancers in the ranchy acts.
For those who understand Hokkien songs, you would know that they even allow racy and vulgar songs to be performed, to the delight of the middle aged Chinese men. It is said that stripping act is even permitted in Taiwan. God must be crazy!
