Supposedly old folks says going to the beach and swim at 12pm is the best because it will give u good health all year round. But i guess the newer generation just went to celebrate the festival & at the same time can bring family for a weekend beach outing.

Nonnie King said...

A-Nonnie-Mous : Wah lao eh.. 12pm! So hot wor.. and come back sure become charcoal one.

Lucky we no longer need to follow that tradition liao..

Jan Shim said...

Lucky we no longer need to follow that tradition liao..

Ever occured to anyone that because we no longer follow tradition, "good health" no longer follows us? And we wonder why this is so.

Chinese community in the Brunei Capital seems to have lost this tradition to the rat race. If one day the Chinese community in Belait gives up this beach-going tradition, I shudder to think what might happen to us!

Nice photos.. DSLR are so expensive..I want one too.. I have a couple friends from China and sometimes when I talk to them, I have to think carefully before spurting out the 'Malaysian Chinese'. hehe... The thing you posted is really funny.

今天的天氣熱到。。。。。。。。。。。。。。HAHAHA!

Nonnie King said...

Uncle Jan : But if we follow that tradition sure got skin cancer later... And kana sting by jellyfish, kua?

I seriously hope this unique tradition will carry on by next generations and still feel passionate about it.

Siokngi : Ya, very very very expensive and it takes lot of practice to produce nice photographs.

A lor, when talking to people who speaks proper mandarin, they really cannot catch what we're talking with our rotten cha-pa-lang super rojak Mandarin.
