Balancing the budget

A child stands on a mock wad of 1000 Hong Kong dollar notes as he balances with the help of a frame during the parade of the annual Bun Festival on the island of Cheung Chau, Hong Kong on 10 May. The residents believe the festival can appease the hungry ghosts of pirates with sweet buns which bring good luck to the island's fishermen protecting them from the spirits of pirates that once lurked in the region.

A young couple standing on poles perform during a parade at the Bun Festival on Cheung Chau island in Hong Kong on May 10. Thousands of the faithful flocked to this tiny Hong Kong island for the Bun festival, honoring the Taoist God of the Sea, in which evil spirits are scared away by loud gongs and drums during the procession.

Kids today, eh? It seems as if they never stop messing with their cellphones, even when you ask them to balance precariously on a pole and scare away evil pirate spirits.
