hUnGrY GhOst MoNth...

Finally the ghost month arrived....today is mark as the start of the ghost month according to the chinese calendar. Worst there'll be 2 ghost months instead of 1 =). Believe it or not guess you better watched out and stay in house as it's known as the month represents a connection between the living and the dead, earth and heaven as well as body and soul. Within this few days only, many sudden and unexpected death was reported.

Mon Jul 24 - Royal tragedy
Tues Jul 25 - Actor Hani Mohsin dies
Tues Jul 25 - Woman loses mum and hubby within days (really sad sad story)

Just walking back home today, I noted along the roadside sumptuous meals are offered to these ghosts, as well as prayers and the burning of 'paper money'. Looking up to the park nearby my place, there's lie this manson which believed to be haunted. I was thinking will "she" be back? , will I be able to capture "her" picture? Should I look out for her? (weird wondering).According to some source there was once a couple who lived in the manson. Knowing the husband had an affair she committed sucide and hung herself wearing red clothes (chinese believe this is a way a person who died can stay in the world to continue their "unfinish task"/revenge)

It's believed her spirit had been wondering about for years and it's been seen by many and even posted through some chinese newspaper. Some source even stated there's used to be a monk who prayed for her in late evening everyday so her soul may rest in peace.

Soon after the monk passed away, a temple was built there. To some it sounds really eerie...you ask me do I? Hmmmm at first I think so but my friend told me..the ghost is a chinese ghost so they will only hunt chinese and since I am Christian they won't know me (but I still look like chinese mar) kakakkakaka...after all he is Ch-indian and they don't know him too.

Some may wonder about my "missing in action" .....I've been to Singapore for a more then a week. Of course this is not my first trip but it just yet another trip here! Having lots of fun !

Went to Causway point and get myself a minicure. Costing S$22 +S$8 (design). The service ain't that good compared to the one I got at Gurney mall. Too common here probably. Luckly I got it for FOC =) ~ my sis paid for it !!

At night spent S$17++ in Starbucks at Ochard...aiyah what an expensive meal...what to do my cousin pre-birthday celebration.

As usual my first intention is to visit Ang Mo Kio for my fav pig trotter aka "tu kah" ~~in hokkien ah..to respect the non chinese reading this I ain't gonna describe that in detail or have any other translation...just check out the pic to identified it.

Got caught up in traffic when heading to pick up my cousin (who don't eat "tu kah" or anything to do with "tu").Managed to snapped some pic while caught in the jam. Real long q. After picked up my cousin we headed off to Teck Ghee food court. This is where the best "tu kah" you ever find...yummy yummy....

Look for Eng Kee Bak Kut Teh stall. See what I mean, with those food award it got (pic above).
Errr...don't ask me about the "Bak Kut Teh" here. Never try that before. But if you love the taste of MSG then you may wanna try out. =) heard that is how the soup is like...

Total cost of our lunch = S$4 per bowl (excluded rice)
