MALAYSIA, Kuala Lumpur : An Ethnic Chinese priest stands in front of statue made of paper of Chinese deity ‘Da Shi Ye’ or Guardian God of Ghosts set of fire by devotees during the Hungry Ghost festival in Kuala Lumpur, late on August 10, 2014. The festival, celebrated in the seventh lunar month of the Chinese new year calendar among communities in southern China, Malaysia, Singapore, HongKong and Taiwan, marks the belief that the ‘Gates of Hell’ are opened to let out the hungry ghosts who then wander in the land of the living while foraging for food. During the festival, food offerings are made while paper money and joss sticks are burnt outside homes to keep the spirits of dead ancestors happy and to bring good luck. AFP PHOTO/ MANAN VATSYAYANA
