Yesterday was the chinese 14th day of the 7month, chinese usually said this is the day "our friends" will "loiter" around, and we are not encourage to go out on the night, this is said by the old people.
As usual my MIL will do her praying on the evening time on this day. After family dinner, all the kids are playing outside the house. Seeing MIL get ready to do the praying, get all the joss sticks, big candles, foods, fruits and etc, put all nicely on the floor with the help of my younger SIL and aunty. (I usually don't involve on all this, because i don't do the praying thing :P)
I stand aside "keepo-ing" while watching my two boys playing on their bicycles. MIL light all the big candles, and burn the joss sticks, and she put a lot candles on top of the soils, there come my sons, they also join me. Out of sudden, my dear Cruz, clapping his hand and sang "Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you" *phutt phutt, try to blow off the candles* and he use his hand do the cut cake things and said "cut cut cut cake" and "ahmm - eat" I had a good laugh!! Told him "this is not cake, and there is no cake also, and this is not birthday, this is praying, so cannot sing "happy birthday", to him, got candles means is "happy birthday"!!! *faint*
