10.04.2012 | 報夢請教

[Volume 7 Issue 4, #1380]
幾日前見到呢個報導, 「祭祖燒紙iPhone, 祖父托蒙不會用」, 青年因為咁樣嚇親而病咗兩日.. 我覺得果真係奇聞一宗, 前所未聞囉, 玩嘢到連國外報章都要報導一番.. 家下紙紮行業都與時趨進, 最新科技產品應有盡有, 或者應該考慮附送使用手冊或光碟先得喇.. 不過都有人開玩笑話, 燒部電話俾祖先, 唔怕佢哋夜晚喺陰間打電話上嚟搵人?? :p
saw this in the newspaper the other day.. the title says "offered iPhone to ancestors, grandpa appeared in dream saying he doesn't know how to use" [note], a guy hence freaked out and fell sick for two days.. i think this is a rather rare news until it was reported in some foreign papers.. traditional chinese paper offerings industry has been coping so well with technology, they have all the latest gadgets available, maybe it's time for them to consider attaching the user manual or visual aids with the products.. but there were also jokes saying if ancestors are offered mobile phones, are they going to call up at night from "down there"?? :p

    1. *pull long face*

      I need to work tomorrow....... *roar*

      Idiotic management decided to replace the holiday to 'somewhere else'.

      Pray hard they don't 'telan' my holiday.

      Delete
    2. Sometimes I really disagree with the management, suka-suka change the ad-hoc-ly declared holiday to another date.

      Like last time when we won the what-what piala for football, we got the following day as holiday. Darn the management changed it to a Saturday! And I'm not working on that Saturday!! So they replied, "Nasib la". What the f....??!!

    3. Can I write a complain letter to any gomen dept??

      Go report to Najib! xD

      Delete
    5. i also don't like that lah, but then sometimes management also have their reasons also lah.. anyway, as long as it's replaced then still acceptable lah.. but then it would be better to follow the majority lah, or else employees cannot enjoy family day also right?? complain to Najib?? haha, you think it will be of any help??

    1. I'll ask for 4D number.....


      And if I forgot to ask, I'll refer to the 4D mini book for the number.

      *note: you know the 4D book, right? The one old Chinese men and women like to check upon. Example, if they see a snake crossing the road, they'll check for snake symbol. Each symbol has its correspond numbers.

      Delete
    2. hmmm, i also wonder what would be the best action to take if ever such dream happens to me.. but definitely i will not ask for 4D number lor, i don't buy one lah..

      Delete
    3. Eh, buy la... very "leng" one. Sure kena! Unless your ancestor was just pulling your legs and purposely want you to lose money.

      But then, if won already, need to repay "them", right? Burn offering?? Forget to repay, then they will come and haunt every night.

      Delete
    4. hahaha, i bought a few times but then everytime also loose money one.. but instead sometimes when i told others to buy, then they may win.. hahaha, so "cheh"~~

    2. SK said those gadgets should attach with visual aids and manual. No use, my ancestors can't read. The best is to have Apple store there, provide professional support to the end users. Right or not? Yvonne, next time when we go that time, we can work in Apple store. Choi, choi, choi. Sorry.

    3. SK, next time, you want to work there or not? With you IT knowledge and skill, sure Steve Jobs wants you.

  29. Most of us brush off dreams as just dreams - no significant meaning at all. But others who have experienced actual happenings would believe that some (not all) dreams are requests for help or to rectify a situation. I know people who acted on the rectification and have not been disturbed (by dreams) anymore.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i agree with you and i actually do think this is not any nonsense.. there are a lot of real cases that can actually prove that..

      Delete
  30. I wonder why they need to burn such things for the dead - what's the significance? Traditionally, they burn boats/ships so they will take the souls of the deceased back to their homeland (China) and things like that. These days, they just simply burn...anything and everything.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think the intention is good, they just want to offer the best to their ancestors only.. anyway, it's the deed of respect that counts, so let's not just comment too much on what different people are trying to burn, agree?? :)

      Delete
  31. I believe people should just offer the items the deceased is familiar with so that he/she will be able to make use of it.

    Maybe a decade or two down the road iPhones can be offered as the deceased would have been familiar with such a gadget. A case in point, a relative who enjoyed playing mahjong when he was living would enjoy receiving a set of mahjong, for instance. My two cents.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. very well said but then i guess it's just up to the different individual to offer what they deem suitable.. in the end, it's the heart and respect that counts.. agree?? :)

  38. When my grandma passed away, I had this dream:

    "I was walking behind my grandma and grandpa (he was dead for more than 5 years earlier) up a hill. I couldn't catch up with both of them and my grandma ushered me to follow faster. I tried to run and yet they seemed to be moving further." Then I woke up abruptly.

    Hearsay, if I managed to hold onto them, my soul would follow them to netherland and never returned.... means I would be dead in my sleep, my grandma took me with her. I was my grandma favourite granddaughter *sweat*

    2. Growing up, I was always reminded by my Mom not to receive anything given to me in a dream especially if I dream about a deceased. Because what is given may harm me in real life.

      And it's actually a fact especially in Malay culture where black magic is abound. @.@

      Delete
    3. By the way, I'm actually used to dreaming about dead relatives.

      One time, before my marriage I dreamt about my late grandma, all smiling at me. I take it that my marriage is blessed.

      Used to dream about my grandpa too, he was always there whenever I'm down as if to let me know he still cares.

      And I will get "visited" by recently departed relatives in my dreams too. Scary or not? Actually not scary lah. Just very sad...

      Delete
    4. @ yvonne: oh, that is scary.. that's why sometimes cannot say we can totally ignore or disbelieve such thing also right?? but then maybe it's just a dream that they are leaving you, they just miss you so much but did not intend to bring you together since you are lagging behind..

      @ lina: oh, do not accept anything offered in dreams?? but then we cannot control what we are doing in the dreams right?? and eih, there are also other "visitors" in your apartment still??

      Delete
    5. Lina, yeah, I can't help but to accept the gift moreover I'm in the dream. And you're "good" in getting dreams of your deceased relatives. In Chinese culture, when we dreamt of the deceased, it mean something, or so they say. I can't really brush them off nor believe in them totally :s

      SK, I think I'm the one who couldn't let go. I'm close to my late-grandma and love her very much.

      Delete
    6. i think there must be a reason we dream of the ancestors, the dream could be a valid message that we just cannot brush off..

      Delete
  39. Wonder do the dead blog as well now that they have all those sophisticated gadgets? If yes which would be most popular? Wordpress or Blogger or both are unheard of in the other world? Maybe Steve can start Hellpress or Heavenbless for them.
