26.01.2012 | 新年禁忌

[Volume 7 Issue 1, #1305]
新年期間當然有好多禁忌啦, 樣樣要好意頭, 呢樣唔做得嗰樣唔講得.. 咁大家有冇認住邊幾句話, 係當啲唔識趣嘅人(寒喧)一問, 就兜口兜面一嘢埋嚟, 崩口人忌崩口碗嘅呢?? 譬如話:
  • 拍咗拖未呀?? 幾時結婚呀?? (我上星期啱啱分咗手!!)
  • 今年幾多個月花紅呀?? (關你叉事?? 我又唔會分俾你洗!!)
  • 一年唔見, 食咩食到你咁福相呀?? (你唔瘦得我幾多!!)
CNY is all about auspiciousness, so the chinese believe there are many things we can't do and say during CNY, else they will bring bad luck.. so have you had something that when somebody asked about, you feel like a stab in your heart?? for instance,
  • are you dating already?? when are you getting married?? (i just broke up last week bast**d!!)
  • how many months bonus you get?? (none of your business, i won't share any with you anyway!!)
  • you've grown much more steady since the last time i saw you!! (you are not a lot slimmer than i do ok??)

    1. not really a pain in the @ss, but i really find those quite nonsense.. asking the same thing every year, i bet they are too lazy to think of some other more interesting topic to ask?? :D

    1. that's why, normally these are relatives questions, most of the time relatives that you most probably see them only one hour every year during reunion dinner only~~ :D

  4. Just to break the ice, since this is annual meeting... they don't know how to start the conversation.

  5. Moreover, some are quite busybody to know about your relationship, $$$ and perhaps it's time to boast about themselves, too.

    1. can easily differentiate whether they are genuine to ask or they are trying to gossip or showoff how well they/their children are doing lah.. so the way i respond also depends on the situation one.. :D

    1. hahaha, so next time you tell them this statement deep inside your heart lor.. hahahaha!! and i can guarantee you, they will straight away shut up and will never ever ask the same question again~~ :D

  7. lol! that's a familiar scenario.. but i think most of them ask that just to create a conversation.

    What do you ask someone who you haven't seen for a long time, to start a conversation.. Hi! you look beautiful? :)

    1. hahaha, true also lah.. but sometimes it's quite tiring to entertain those relatives that you might be seeing them only for one hour or so in a whole year i.e. during reunion dinner.. so not making sense to talk all these things deeply right??

    1. 哈哈, 其實我已經看過了, 這個post就是inspired by那一個圖表的囉.. 其實沒有a stab in your heart那麼嚴重喇, 我的人看比較開, 所以只是覺得很無聊, 沒有覺得很hurt喇..
