16.02.2012 | 百無禁忌

[Volume 7 Issue 2, #1326]
今日首先要用「百無禁忌」四個字作開頭.. 事關前日喺鬧市中見到一位鬼婆遊客, 佢手上拎住一個膠袋, 裡邊裝住幾包陰~司~紙!! 唔係農曆七月, 我諗佢又應該唔會買嚟拜拜.. 難道因為色澤鮮艷面額巨大, 好奇之下所以買嚟帶返去當手信派街坊??!! 嘩, 希望佢唔係你朋友啦吓, 啋~~ (=.=)"
today i must say "touchwood" as my opening to the post.. because i saw a foreigner the other day in the city, she was carrying a plastic bag, and inside the bag i saw a few packets of "hell currency notes"!! it's not hungry ghost month, and i don't think she bought those for prayers.. could it be that she was attracted by the vibrant colors and huge face value, so bought them as crafts and bring them back home as souvenirs for her family and friends??!! oh, i so hope she's not one of your friends then, faintz~~ (=.=)"

  40. what is hell currency notes SK? wait.. lemme check it online

    ReplyDelete
  41. this is what i found "The burning of hell bank notes is based on the common Chinese belief to ensure that the spirits of the deceased in the afterworld can enjoy a luxury life with all the hell bank notes being offered to them, which are actually money to spend in their afterworld.

    ReplyDelete
  42. is that it? that;s pretty interesting actually... but yeah.. if it's not Hungry Ghost month out there and if he's just buying it for souvenirs and give it away to his friends.. then that's quite weird right....
