Chung Yeung Festival

Parents left home early for Mainland to pay respect to ancestors.  I also congested my way through crowds who were heading to the cemetery, but I was just going for a friendly game of soccer nearby.  It was rather awkward playing under the strong smell of burning incense, but I had a great time playing in the amazing field adorned with a wonderful backdrop of mountain scape.

This was my first time playing soccer with friends from church in HK.  It reminded me of the ‘unplanned’ but often much anticipated annual soccer match during my Toronto church’s summer retreats.  Those were good times.
