Still A-wake at night

It's the second night and tonight's the Taoist ceremony. It's a case of "we're not sure what we should do, so we'll just do everything, appease all the gods and then we'll be fine".

They're singing in Chinese opera style with er-hu and tick-tock whilst walking over a small bridge. They 'pay' for the departed's passage to the next world with coins put into a small box. They finish at 2245 with a short round of mahjong to follow.
