Anyway, if month 7 were a scary month to you, what about month 8? Or maybe lunar calendar is just totally meaningless to you.
I am quite sensitive towards month 8 in lunar calendar. When I was a kid (not too long ago ^_^), I knew it is month 8 when I saw the red envelope / engagement candies appeared at my house. Being the youngest child, I always got the chance to attend dinner together with my parents. LOL! And the engagement candies would be mine!!! Ok, I shared it with my papa most of the time, he can have the one with nuts (I do not like that one). Lucky thing my bros did not fight with me for the other one. Probably guys do not like sweet stuff? Oh, there is this belief that little kid will become stubborn if they eat the engagement sweet. My uncles and grandma always nagged me if they found me eating the candy. Then they would tell my mama to stop me. However, my mama might have realised the fact that stubborn is a taurus's nature and she never stops me from eating it. hehehehehe...
The first wedding invitation I received is from my ex-employer in 1999. That was my very first time attending a dinner on my own. And that was my first time get to know how does the fish lips soup taste. *Sigh* I hate fish lips because people tend to replace fin soup with fish lips soup! To me, attending dinner means to eat fin soup bo! Although the concept is not right
Ok ok..enough of the soup matter.
Last Friday (the very first day of month 8), I received an invitation card from a colleague. Just hours ago, my dad got another one from his old friend. The date for the 2 weddings is the same. At first, I thought we are going to the same dinner since this colleague's soon-to-be hubby is Kuching hakka ma. But they are different.
Woo...I believe there would be more to come. This is just the beginning...^_^
