Phuket ready for ‘hungry ghost’ festival

By Kritsada Mueanhawong




The Phuket City Municipality has organised a wide range of activities for the annual Por Tor festival from August 23 to September 9 in Phuket Town.


Promoted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) regional office in Phuket Town, the Por Tor festival has its roots from the Chinese “Spirit” or “Hungry Ghost” festival, one of the most important ancestor worship events on the Chinese lunar calendar.


One of the most important offerings are red turtle cakes: Aung Gu (small turtle) and Tua Gu (big turtle).

It's a real pity they're nowhere ready for the 'hungry for accountability' festival.

While the TAT keep perpetuating this drivel and no one is genuinely interested in real issues, they will just carry on lurching from accident to accident.


Thinking about it, I suppose it's not much different to the "Carry On' series of comedies. Don't remember having seen 'Carry On Thailand' yet. Maybe the PM could set-up a committee to look into it.

I'm sure there's enough members who could suggest their own comedy scenarios.

I guess the real "hungry ghosts" (corrupt officials) are celebrating all year 'round.
