In #Singapore and #hongkong it is ancestors month. During this time people burn hell money to ensure their ancestors are well taken care of in the afterlife.
There are burning receptacles all over the place where people set ablaze hell currency.
It is often the one time of year where you see what seems to be trash spewed all over the street and sidewalk.
There is a constant smell of burnt in the air. (at Zhongshan Park Singapore)
