    the police have better things to do than to waste a trip down just to tell you that they do not handle such matters. pls don't waste public resources

    A better composition for the photo would be to move the plants away, move the slippers to point where the bin is, pointing towards to rail, and then leave a sad sad depressing note under the slippers.

    Okay, kidding. Prob not the right thing to kid during 7th month huh... but I think will be quite impactful. Okay sorry. Just kidding. Don't do it. Okay?

    TS.... does this happens everyday... or just during certain time of the month (1st/15th luner month) ?? If its not a daily thing.... suggest just let it be lor.

    I'm sure there will be time that your neighbor would consider certain things you do to be kind of inconsiderate to them too.... so, as neighbor... best to sometimes 'close one eye'. But if you are still unhappy... perharps you could sweep up the ash into a neat mount at their doorstep just to remind them that others also live there.

    Calling the Police will be a waste of time since they would refer both parties to mediation.... Its ain't the jobs of our Boys in Blue to mediate between unhappy neighbors.... just to stop them from killing each other

    I agree with this, especially during this time of the year. Expect more to come on the 24 Aug (15th lunar Jul), I think not only your next door neighbour is burning joss paper, neighbours from left, right, up or down and many other from the nearby block may be doing the same thing...

    Doing that in the hallway is a fire hazard. This *is* a good reason to call the authorities.

    No really.... since most chinese family, including mine, does the same.

    In TS case.... I think the Neighbour, left the Ash Bin to cool down after burning and wind blow the ashes out from vents around the Bin. You could see the top cover of the bin, wasn't put back. Dirty yes.... Fire hazard, no. Beside.... look at the photo, unless the flower pots and plants in them burns easily... there isn't alot of 'Fuel' for any would be fire. And lets not forget the burning is content inside the metal bin. From my 30++ years of burning Joss Paper.... any lighted ash that floats up, won't burn long enough to cause fire in surrounding like those in the photo.

    The town council would have provided the bins at the void decks for pple to use..

    Do be considerate and not burn the papers within the building.

    It is rather uncomfortable to be in this situation. To prevent further misunderstandings, you could play it cool -

    - Buy a simple cheap snack (like chee chong fun) for them.....deliver to their home, say you bought extra, at the same time inform them about the ''mess you have been having recently'' and wondered if they could prevent it for you the next time round.

    If it happens again, I would sweep it up, and quietly poor it into their bedroom (through the window).

    nah, they were burning right outside my common bed room. the fire was already died when i took the picture. and yes, it is fire hazard, there are loose wire on the ceiling.

    anyway, i think i will close 1 eye for this round , since this is 7th month.

    I empathize with you.

    I caught my neighbour a few times, smoking cauldron just outside my door or windows. I simply just do not understand such people. If dont have the heart to burn, DONT DO IT. If have the heart, why dont just go downstair?
