"By the way, did you wonder why Polling Day is on 11 September and not 12, as it usually would have been on a Saturday?
A friend of mine had an interesting answer to that. As today is the last day of the Chinese Seventh Month, all the ghosts would have to go back to the other world. We would want our ah gongs and ah mas to know the results right? In particular, one special Ah Gong."
