02.09.2012 | 膽小馬騮

[Volume 7 Issue 9, #1525]
時值農曆七月十七, fing-fing聽到週圍話呢個月鬼門關大開, 搞到佢呢隻膽小馬騮都怕怕添.. 怕到喺自己屋企睇恐怖片都要拎張被蓋住, 而且最怕就係屋企附近有喪禮, 見到都要兜路走, 夜晚仲要唔敢瞓覺添, 呵呵!! 不過fing-fing爸爸話, 大個仔就唔怕喇, 其實大家喺同一個世界裡面不同空間共生共存, 相信只要大家能夠互相尊敬, 你不犯我我不犯你, 應該都可以相安無事嘅.. 其實七月盂蘭節, 本來就係普渡同超渡亡魂, 係好多人繪聲繪色先模糊咗佢真正嘅意義啫.. 阿彌陀佛 :)
it's the 7th month of the chinese calendar, when fing-fing heard everyone saying this is the hungry ghost month, he becomes a scared chimpanzee.. he is so scared he need to cover himself with blanket when watching horror film at home, and especially afraid of funerals nearby until he finds other path to bypass and do not dare to sleep at night.. but fing-fing's daddy says, grown up and no more fear, we are all actually existing in the same place but just within different dimensions, if we can respect each other and do not cross the line, it always can be a harmony co-existence.. actually the 7th month of lunar calendar is to pay tribute to the spirits, perhaps it's those many who had exaggerated some strange incidents that have blurred the actual purpose.. namo amitabha :)

    7. Sorry, Fing-fing, you shouldn't be reading all this 'shitty' stuff but... you have to start somewhere. Right?

      Oh, my manners...

      Good afternoon, SK, everyone! You too, Fing-fing. Yeah, the 7th month can be a scary month. But then again, any month can be scary with your Papa's scary band of bloggers haunting his blog. Oops! (I mustn't say that because they'll haunt even more..)

    10. SK...
      Jamban actually is coarser than tandas. xD

      And jamban can mean your butt also. ;p

      Delete
    11. ish, you all so gross, misleading me here!! so jamban means those hut with just one hole and you drop everything through the hole?? KNS at first I thought it sounds like those bahasa istana.. xD

      Delete
    12. LOL! You guys cracked this post with jamban, tandas, toilet and poo-poo stories! Ingenious~

      At least we had some good laugh before scaring ourselves with stories of 7th lunar month :)

      Delete
    13. Eh , Lina. Jamban means butt ka?

      I always thought like SK said jamban is a hut with a hole . The old type out side the house punya

      Delete
    14. that is what i've always thought jamban is those luxurious toilet in the palace until lina corrected me.. wakakaka, and i didn't know jamban can mean butt also~~

      Delete
  3. I totally agree with your daddy, fing fing. we ate not alone in this world, and auntie linsad doesn't mean aliens.

    We do share this world with other beings, animals, plants, spirits... We need to learn to co-exist harmoniously with each other.

    Ps fing fing... You like to watch a horror movie? :-D

    4. STP,
      I agree totally with you! SP must have mentioned this because of his experience! LOL

      SP,
      How you rescue fui fui from scary movie storyline ah? Tangan go hug where exactly? kekeke

      Delete
    5. hahaha, i think it's the other way round for SP lah.. he brings girls to watch horror movie, but instead he is the one who scared and hide his head under the girl's papaya~~ like that also works ok?? :D

      Delete
    6. Meow, guys can't get any advantages by bringing girls to watch horror movies. The most is, the girls will scream their heads off and hold the guys' arms tightly and leave bruises on it :p

      And nowadays most girls are very daring, dare to sit through the horror movie, let out some panic mode in between only.

      Delete
    7. wakakaka......Yvonne, you got note SK comment above or not? Oohhh thats why SK and his sekutu brings girls watch horror movie la. Wanna eat papaya leh...

      Yvonne...later salah grab , not grab the arms...habis cerita...no more future generations .....

      Delete
    8. yalah, now that girls are not timid anymore, they instead know the excuse behind guys bringing them to horror movie.. hahaha!! that's why some guys acted the opposite way, act scared and hide under the papaya~~ :D

    2. Good morning, TM and Lina!
      Fing-Fing is scared of the ghost month? Never fear as your daddy is there with you.

      Delete
    3. Very suspicious post. I am wondering whether it is the daddy that is scared or it is fing fing scared.

      fi.g fing watching scary movie or is it the daddy who watch.wanna watch and wanna scared.. I think fing fung would b watching banana in pajama rather than watching scary movie la. hence must be the daddy who does that

      Delete
    4. Which banana in pyjama are you talking about Meow?

      The cartoon one or the batang, asli one? wakaka

      Delete
    5. hehehehe, it's up to you to guess whether it's the daddy or the daddy when young lah.. actually can guess quite obviously what.. but then one thing, i think it's very common with everyone that the more they scared the more they want to watch!! hahaha~~

      Delete
    6. I reckon fing fing's daddy is the one who scared him badly. Being a parent, we tend to warn our children (unknowingly scare them) sometimes, like, "If you misbehaved, the closet monster will look for you tonight".

      I'm guilty of doing that, but I don't mention "monster", I merely say "the bad fella".... and they are still afraid, especially darkness.

      Delete
    7. LOL.....what for Fing Fing watch the ori one? Of course la the cartoon one. If ori one sure Fing Fing wont watch already. sure sudah masuk mulut :p

      Yvonne, ya lor it's the parents fault. Usually the parents scare the children

      But then now also got TV fault la. a lot of nonsens e in ttv.

      Like my son. He was not scared of ghost and monster punya but a few months ago when lights out, he dare not go out of the room. Asked him why? he said got monster/ghost outside. We tarak teach him about ghost and moster. Guessing it's from the tv. those caryoons. say got monster in the closet and stuffs like that

      Delete
    8. yalah, very true with what yvonne have said.. normally it's the parents that have threatened or scared the kids with all those ghosty things that leave phobia in them.. hmm, actually not good huh?? we should try to explain the real thing actually.. :)

    6. Those "things" appear when our guard is the lowest. Numbers?? I bet we will be jumping out from our skin when we meet "them"! Our heart is pumping fast and knees are shaking badly, the clock is ticking super slow and we wish we were out of there!

      I don't want to ask for number. I rather have a peaceful night (and day).

    7. but the if getting numbers from those things also not good leh. Usually they will wanna extract" a gift from those who ask for number. Scary

    8. yalah, i think it's no good to get numbers from them lah.. you know lah, there's no "free lunch" right, and always there will be some expectation.. and if you win and forgotten to contribute back, then the problem will happen to you~~ not good not good..

    2. They say depending on one's "unn" level. Once, a car full of guys in the middle of the night - one saw lady in white with long hair by the road, others did not see. Told the rest so they turned back...when they reached the place, none could see except that guy - so scared he fainted!!! His "uun" very low, they say.

    6. hehehehe, that means Mak Yan is the one who is scared lah.. that's why she said she "filtered" all the horror movies from her princesses so that they won't be scared.. yalah, very true lah, i think sometimes we just think too much.. most importantly is behave ourselves and try to be moderate, and then respect each other.. that should be fine i guess.. :)

  24. 2 more weeks to go to 8th lunar month. I just treat the 7th month as another month, don't think too much of it and don't curse, in case we might "tak chui" some restless spirits.
