Gentleman in Thought, Tiong Bahru

Lock Hong stared blankly ahead with deep regret and emptiness of soul.

Twelve months ago, during the Hungry Ghost month, he fought with his best friend of 40 years, Qiao Si.

Lock Hong never saw him again. Qiao Si was involved in a fatal “accident” soon after their fight.

But every Hungry Ghost month, he felt his presence.

Behind Lock Hong, under the birdcage Qiao Si looked the other way.

He never forgets. And he never forgives.

Hungry Ghost Month, 2016
