Blessings in Penang

In this Thai temple in Penang, locals like to light a candle for blessings.

Each of thaws long table hold 102 rows of candles with 11 candles in each row. How many candles can each table hold?

The candles are in the shape of pineapple because the name of the fruit is homonym to the phrase 'luck comes' in Hokkien, the local dialect.
