It’s 4:34am over here when I’m writing this entry. I can’t sleep again. I wonder what I can do to be less imsomniac? The lack of sleep and a good rest is not only irritating me, but also giving me headachaches.
Anyway, this entry is meant for a few days ago. Since I cannot hit the sack and go to dreamland, I might as well write something that I have been procrastinate doing for the past two days. This will be another of my silly short entry, though, so consider yourself have been forewarned, folks.
As you all probably know, this year’s Ramadhan (Muslim fasting month) coincide with the Hungry Ghost festival, and I have a question to ask.
It is known by the Muslim and non-Muslim who took the time to understand the facts about Ramadhan that during the whole fasting month, spirits, ghost, devil, undead and whatnot will be locked and chained up in Hell for the entire month, and therefore, no bloody ghosts will be walking on the face of the Earth for the rest of the month. The Muslims believed that Ramadhan is the holiest month of all, and it is time to fast and do good deeds without being disturbed by the evils.
The superstitious Chinese, on the other hand, believes that all hell is set loose during this entire month, and the undead and evil spirit and whatnot will be walking on Earth to enjoy their ‘vacation’ and wreaking havoc for the entire month.
Since Ramadhan and Hungry Ghosts Festival coincide with each other this year, I truly wonder…which one is true? The ghosts and evil beings being chained and locked up in Hell as the Muslims believed or all hell is set loose as the superstitious Chinese believes?
I am not mocking both Muslim and Chinese, but I truly wonder, which one is a true statement? The one made by the Muslims, or the superstitious Chinese?
I don’t know which statement is true but I prefer to believe the Muslim this time. At least, I won’t be cowering up for fear of being ‘disturbed’ or posessed by the evil beings and undead when I loiter around on this godforsaken earth.
Anyway, allow me to end this entry by wishing all Muslim out there a blessed Ramadhan, and may all of your good deeds be repayed by God.
And not forgetting the supertitious Chinese a safe and sound Hungry Ghosts Festival. Hopefully you don’t stumble upon anything creepy or any bad luck throughout this whole month.
Cleffairy: I don’t know what to believe anymore. The world is full of contradictions.
