From ‘Landscape marred’ 22 Sept 1982 ST Forum
The closest most of us will ever encounter ash and fire is probably during Qing Ming. For those who fail to appreciate the primordial connection with flames or the culture of burning hell money, there’s always the iPhone Hell Bank Note app, which, as expected, draws fire from traditionalists who believe that spoiling the spirits with fake money is what keeps us all still Chinese.
And here’s what netizens on omy.sg have to complain about technology accelerating the evolution of the next phase of ‘banana’ humanity. Mild really, compared to insults of iPhone app users being dummies.

这是一种华人传统习俗。 不该轻易被 科技代替。 现在已经很多香蕉人， 再这样下去， 接下来不懂会变什么新品种人了。。。
