07.11.2012 | 烏鴉傳說

[Volume 7 Issue 11, #1591]
相信大家都有聽過關於一隻聰明烏鴉如何飲用瓶底中嘅水呢個故事.. 當然我唔係要講呢個故事大家聽, 如果你想知, 麻煩你去翻一翻幼稚園小朋友嘅課本啦, 呵呵!! 我想同大家分享嘅, 係以前某個朋友話我知, 如果你朝早瞓醒嘅時候見到一隻烏鴉, 咁好可能呢一日你會行衰運, 除非你係見到超過三隻烏鴉而唔係單單一隻囉.. 自此我就一路認住認住, 所以每次一見到烏鴉, 我都會好自然去搵其他幾隻烏鴉, 叫做「化解」咁啦.. 有時又真係會行衰運喎, 可能係自己認住?? 不過又唔可以話完全迷信.. 大家覺得呢??
i am sure you have heard about the story of how a clever crow drinks water from the bottom of a jar.. but this is of course not the story i wanted to tell here, if you want to know, go flip the books of a kindergarten kid, haha!! what i wanted to share here is, i heard a friend who once told me, if you wake up in the morning and see a crow, then it will be a bad bad day for you, unless you see more than three and not just a single crow.. since then i have always believe that, and always try to find other crows if i see one in the morning, haha!! but sometimes it did make me a bad day, i wouldn't say it's true but it may not be just a myth too.. or maybe it's my prejudice?? what do you think??

    10. Tentatively, I have postponed my trip to December, just in time for year end sales. I will let you all know when I am there. Not too worry about meet up. Don't need to plan anything, I understand everyone is staying so far from each other, some more the traffic in KL is damn scary one. I am there on weekdays. I don't like to bring kids to meet up my friends. I love hanging out with my friends like HHBC where by I can arrange my husband to take care of them. I am planning to meet up a few close girl friends of myself when I am there this time. Again, it is girls meet up, no bringing kids and spouse one. I just love that.

      No problem, we can whatapps each other to see who is free that time. Ok?

    2. I read and heard about the smart crow story repeatedly, before kindy, during kindy and in my primary schooling years~

      But I have yet to intro these moral type of stories to my kids! They are pretty obsessed with princesses and superheroes!

      Delete
    3. My two girls have outgrown the princesses and superheroes. They are now reading lots of comics and young adult novels. No more pictures board books for them.

    4. Story about the crow is rather interesting. But to believe it's a omen, I'm not sure about that. People said if you heard a crow, it signifies a death somewhere. Here, we hardly see any crow. Maybe they are plenty in the zoo. :)

      Delete
    5. I read that before....
      smart crow.. want to to drink water..

    6. Big crows in park in Japan (Ueno Park for instance) have people (oyaji - old retired Japanese guys) feeding them.

      Seems like crow isn't bad news to them ;p

    7. wah Yan, your girls so advance ah? So fast reading Young Adults(YA) books. They like Vampire type of story or not?

      Recently i read one YA series that have Vampire and crows. Rather scary leh. But seems very popular with kids nowadays.

  3. No crows here, thank God! Not like over there... So many! Everywhere! Their blood-curdling caws give me the creeps...

    2. I hardly spot any crow here, too! Mostly are house sparrows, magpie, and myna.

      And I hate crows!! They are so big, noisy and intimidating! Ya leh, back then I was afraid of crows, they are huge and I got scared when a flock of them stared at me; I was just a 7 years old small-frame little girl, in the school field for P.E. lesson.

    3. wah taiping is so clean .. no crow at all..

    1. It's a myth, and I fell for it when I was young. Can't remember which idiot friend told me about this stupid taboo!

      So when I saw one, I searched for the second and third frantically! Crazy, huh? T____T SK's post today makes me recalled my memories - how come I so silly one?

      Delete
    2. oo I have not heard about this taboo..
      Ipoh also a very clean city.. kakaka

    3. Next time bring STP to eat Barbequed Crows for better luck then!

    4. They do not look much worse than the celebrated black chicken...

  5. Sometimes...if you believe it will happen, it will happen!!!! My friend - his friend told him bad luck comes in 3's...so he had a stroke of bad luck (missed his flight)...and he waited for the next one (car accident)...and it came...and the next one, and it came (place flooded)! Some of these things - best not to listen, and not to believe...

    P.S.
    What I heard was - good luck comes in 3's. So which would you believe?

  6. Certainly it was your bad day, SK~ After seeing the 1st crow, you need to "see" another 2 crows but you didn't, and you regarded as bad luck for not be able to spot them :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just don't think so much of it.

      Frankly I'd forgotten about this myth until you mentioned it here. See... not knowing (or forgotten) about it and you won't see the bad luck is triggered from the crow sighting :)

      Delete
    2. I haven't heard about this kind of omen before. You have to spot another two when you have seen one? That's difficult as they don't usually flock together.

      Delete
    3. wenn this is because Ipoh is such a clean and beautiful place .. where we got heard this such belief.
      actually you usually you can see it as a group

      Delete
    4. KL really got a lot of dirty places and Hamsap people like SP. That is why crows love to nest here!

      Delete
    5. You not KL people kah, TM? Maybe your area no crows...as they all know you are there!

      Delete
    6. LOL...sk you bad luck ka? Like that must go touch touch TM for good luck lor. You heard he so lucky last weekend right? maybe some of the good luck will rub off on you

      Delete
    7. Better rub Kaldip's crow for bigger luck!

      Delete
  7. Eh! SK is talking about crow and this very famous moral story. I thought you will blog about using iPad to take video and picture at concert.

    Anyway, this moral story I have read N times and so as my two girls.

    SK, you belief in old wives' tales, aren't you? So lesson learn, don't simply tell your children about old wives' tales which have no scientific proven.

    Last time, my mom like to tell me some old wives' tales too. Once you listened, you would never forget.

    Don't let all these believes affect you. Many are not true.

    1. Last time, my mom told me when eye lids twitching means bad luck is coming soon too. So, now I am scared when my eye lids twitching.

    2. My hubb still believe this old wives' tale up to today. He calls me to be extra careful whenever his eyelids twitch, especially the left one, hahaha!

      (That's when I sense his ♥)

    3. sometimes we just need to believe in order to be on the safe side.

      Delete
    4. For eg, it is not adviseable to move house, nail wall and sew on the bed during pregnancy. Even, painting the wall also should be avoided.

  8. I heard friends telling me about seeing black cat in the morning and you'll get bad luck for the rest of the day.

    Black cat = Black crow, perhaps??

    I even tried avoid seeing black cats at all cost! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. maybe black equates to bad luck or omen. Chinese especially doesn't like black but nowadays youngsters couldn't be bothered about black clothing. Old generation are rather superstitious.

      Delete
    2. Or perhaps due to respect to elders, don't wear ALL black - it's a pain to their eyes because black is associated to "death" thingy. Match some colourful headgear or gold and bold accessory or striking color shoes :)

      And a big NO-NO to black color during CNY, old people pantang!

      Delete
    3. Last time I was very mind to wear whole suit in black. Now, i like black dress, but I will use some colour accessories like red earrings, red bangles and red necklace.

      Delete
    4. When I had bad day and realised I wore all black that day, I will wear red to sleep!

      Delete
    5. Annay, uou must be dressed up like Santa Clause when you go to bed.

    6. Now annay is my daughter's Santa Clause who sent her early Christmas gift! ♥

      Wear red during CNY, including the underwear for more HUAT!!

    7. Who sent your girl a Christmas gift? Alamak!!! No wonder rain, rain, rain.,..non-stop over there till all the places flooded!!! Muahahahahaha!!!!

  9. we filipinos are very superstitious even cutting nails at night was bad said by the elders
    i dont know some are just too much haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. OMG! We Chinese have that superstitious too! The elders forbid us to cut our nails at night. Reason unknown. Hahaha!

      But I still cut my kids' ones at night. Am working in the day time and reach home when the sun almost goes down. Either I wait until weekend to cut them or... but hey, I don't like long dirty fingernails :)

      Delete
    2. Malay also same lah...

      Delete
    3. Lina, really?? You also cannot cut nails at night? Hehehe....

      So what's the story behind to nail cutting at night? Wait, no need to tell me. There's this thing called GOOGLE :)

      .
      .

      .
      .
      .
      Reason:
      1) you can't be with your parents when they die
      2) you might meet with ghosts or dream of ghosts that night

      My answer:
      In the olden day, ppl do not have proper lighting and much depend on candle or kerosene and they most probably use scissors to cut the nail, instead of nail clipper. So guess what might happen when one is not careful :)

      Delete
    4. Chinese also have this superstitious - cannot point finger at the moon, or else you'll end up with a cut behind your ear.






      Back to googling :p

      Delete
    5. Betul what Yvonne say la...old days no proper lighting and some use scissors to cut nails. so cannot cut properly la. better day time cut the nails

  10. i grew up hearing this some makes sense in a way that it some how has a reasonable meaning but some were just made to scare kids so they will behave

  14. Oh dear, I hope that's not true.. because where I live now, there are always crows in the morning. ALWAYS! In fact, they are the ones waking us up every morning when they keep making the 'ark ark' sound. Very annoying and loud!

  18. We all have our own belief systems. Some cultures believe in omens to foretell whether the day will be a good one. I think there is no right or wrong, we just believe what we believe. Even dreams can tell us something for those who know how to interpret them. Just stay alert and be cautious though some events cannot be avoided.

  19. Good day everyone

    Huh...Gagak ah? Ya read that story before. That was long long time ago.

    Replies
    1. There were a lot of gagak at my old house. EVery morning also "Wak Wak Wak" very noisy. Very cham like that. Proabably coz the tong sampah place was nearby and the lorry sampah have not come puick up sampah

      I know one place in seri petaling that you cannot park car else come back the whole car will be "repainted"

      Now no longer allow to shoot gagak is it? I remember when i was small that time there are men from Bandaraya come and shoot the gagak.

      But i dont like crows coz they poo everyhwre. Halfway flying also can poo one.

      then eat from the tong sampah and the food will drop every where. Messing up the place

      Delete
    5. I'm not superstitious, but I will try to avoid 4th, 14th and those number with 4. But my parent's house number is 44. Mum said it is a good number which showing 2 person sitting folding their legs (qiao jiao) = good life.
