Paper replicas of Apple's iPad and iPhone are selling like hot cakes in China this year as millions prepare to honour their ancestors in an age-old annual festival that has taken on a modern twist.
Modern indulgence: Laptops, massage chairs, jewellery, mobile phones and watches are some of the trendy items burnt during prayers. Should you get the foot massager? Or the faux leather massage chair, complete with a remote control? Incense paper offerings for the dead have gone more upscale this Qing Ming festival.
With people enjoying a higher standard of living now, they want the dead to lead a similarly comfortable life in their afterlife too.
