Bai Bai is a very commonly seen custom in the street of Taiwan, especially in the south. The owners of stores or businesses would set out a table in front of their stores with food and fruit on as well as burning incense and a few cups of wine. They are for the wandering "spirits" to feast on. They believe helping those poor souls can accumulate good merits (Taoism) and somewhat do good about their businesses.
