supernatural

This post is another non-mommy related post. Dang! I should just have another blog for my 'other' stories..:-).

Anyway, this is the hungry ghost month. Go google it if you wanna know. This month, you are warned not to travel at night, not to swim not to take any financial risks (?) or ask for car insurance quotes. I'm kidding re: the last one. But, yes, you are not supposed to say, go rock climbing or try white water rafting for the first time. Nandre...nothing of that sort for this whole month.

Now, I am a scardy cat and I will listen. Yeah, I won't listen to many things but for this, I will. For some reason I am so paranoid when walking out. I'll look left and right, over my shoulders to see if severed fingers tap on them. Or I'll get really suspicious of plastic bags left out on the streets. I'd be afraid they contain bloody heads of someone (or thing).

OK..so where on earth is this post going? No where. Just wanted to write something about this. And just so you know, I'll be safe after Sept 8!! heheheh...I swear, right now, I am a certified Tanjung Rambutan inmate! :-P

A few weeks ago, our doorbell rang at exactly 12 midnight..yeah i know - who in the right mind would ring a doorbell at midnight right?..My husband and I were petrified - well at least I was, so we didn't open the door. I went to the lounge to try to peak through the blinds but was too scared..then we went upstairs to try to see...we heard not a sound, nor did we see anybody. It was scary. I posted this up on FB and one of my friends in S'pore commented Does the Hungry Ghost Month go all the way to Perth..?? hahaha...maybe eh...recently I've had relatives pass on, and a few anniversaries..so i said if it was them trying to say Hello then that's OK!! N'ways before this I've never really known what the Hungry Ghost Month is all about...I know its got something to do with hungry ghosts! am i even anywhere near..???...

it's chinese religious belief thingy that for one month, the hell gates are opened and the ghosts are allowed to roam free amongst the mortals. So yes, the month goes all the way to Perth heheheh :-).

but having said that, i think it was just pure coincidence that your doorbell rang. It could be some kid playing a prank or sometimes, the electronics go AWOL.

yes you are a Tg Rambutan inmate alright.

Kids don't go playing prank at midnight, at least not in this neighbourhood, i'd like to think! I thought it might have been the electronics thing too..OK I'll just stick to that. But i don't mind if ghosts came to say HI either :)
