Du Shu De Liao

Really cannot tahan that family of big canon relatives I have. I don’t understand why they always want to show off. I’m actually fine if you have things to show off. But most of the time, its just big talks.

The most funny phrase I heard from them this Chinese New Year is “Fortune teller say my son is Du Shu De Liao”. (Good in studies)

I was trying very hard to control my laughter. That from someone who study 5 years in Secondary School, squeeze into a JC and end up didn’t get a seat in local University.

And seriously, his education level is still a mystery till this day. His family claims that he got Masters already. His mum say she wanted him to study psychology. Got some friends said that he claims that he got PHD already. Ya right.

Whatever it is, its confirm that he doesn’t have ‘Du Shu De Liao’.

Shit, forgot to ask them which fortune teller they go to. That guy confirm not accurate one.

Slash my search

Got this from paddy.

I got my account here already.
Still wondering how it works. Looks complicated. Will need to read up.

Chinese New Year FAQ

Ok, we all know what is the FAQ for singles during Chinese New Year.

Q: “When are you getting married?”

1)”This kind of question is never ending one. Before I get married, you will ask when I getting married. When I got married, you will ask when I going to have children. When I have children, then you will ask when getting another and another.”
*Tries to divert the topic*

2) “Last time your elders also ask you such questions right? Then now you in turn come and ask our generations. But this kind of cycle is never ending. So maybe we should stop this from your generation onwards.”
*Tries to divert the topic*

3) “Getting married is not as easy as your generation that time. Need a lot of money. The wedding dinner itself is a killer. Last time can just setup 1 shelter by the roadside and have dinner. Nowadays, you choose restaurant some people also don’t want. Most want to go hotel nowadays. Where got so much money now? You sponsor? How much you willing to sponsor? I take note. Once I got enough sponsorship, I’ll send you the wedding invite.”
*Tries to divert the topic*

And so, I avoided yet another FAQ…… oh well….. next please….

Happy New Year

Kam conspiracy

I’ve always been wondering….. Is there a conspiracy behind exchanging Kam (mandarin orange) during Chinese New Year?

The tradition says that exchanging Kam is like exchanging gold as the word kam sound like gold blah blah blah. But have you ever wonder…. this tradition could have been created by the kam farmer who is trying to clear his kam during the chinese new year period.

Why would anyone wanna buy so much kam if there isn’t such a tradition?

Could all this be a conspiracy?

Ai Kam Mai?
