I may have mentioned that I work next to a Temple. The temple owns our building in fact with the lower floors reserved for the Chinese Association that runs the temple, and the top 3 floors (it’s only 5 stories tall) rented out to other people like our company.
It’s the temple’s 88th year anniversary, and if you know 8 is a lucky number in Chinese, so 88 is doublely so. Lots of parties and blessings happening around here.
This video was taken from my office window. Notice how loud it is? That’s what I listen to most of the afternoon this week. They are set up stage do to Chinese plays for the temple gods. No audience (at least not that we can see) but for the spirits. Full blast Chinese WAILING (aka Singing). It’s not great.
