Its that time of the year....

In case you dint know, yesterday was the 1st day of chinese Hungry Ghost Festival(农历七月). the month July in Lunar calendar happens to be the most pantang and spooky month of all...:/

i always wonder about the existence of those things.. i've heard about people whom they say they can see those things with their bare eyes. i always wonder how does that feels.. touchwood touchwood la, dont get me wrong, i dont mean i wanna have that kinda power i'm just purely curious.

people also say, as long as we dont interfere and do anything bad with them, then we'll be fine. i dont know how true is this and i dont even know whether that thing exist, but this is what i always practice. i mean, just being me and dont touch anything bad. by saying this i mean DONT engage in activities like:-
-exploring haunted house
-telling/listening ghost stories
-watching ghost movies
-playing ghost games(灵魂钱)
-looking back when hearing someone's calling our names from the back(especially at night)
-etc etc

instead, we can try to:-
-stay at home at night throughout the whole month. if there is really a need to go out, try to go home before 10pm
-carry ang kong hu(sorry dont know how to say in English) everywhere we go
-keeping ourselves clean and pray alot
(yes, i'm not a brave girl)

hmm.. 28 more days to go before we welcome the good month, August ;)

  1. I'm a kiasi, as usual.... I think I'm more afraid to meet the thing. Bring ang-kong-hu around? -> good choice. I'll go ask for ang-kong-hu from temple soon.

  5. Hayley, in fact, ghost is not that frightening, people is more frightening, but now H1N1 is the most frightening one.
