Chanced upon a new local tv variety series on Mio TV last week – “Are You Hokkien? 你是福建人吗?”. It talks about the customs and traditions of one of the dialect groups in Singapore – Hokkien.
Just as we were watching episode 6 today, mum’s friend pop by with a box of cake, red eggs and ang-gu-kueh for the full month of her grandson!
How I know it’s grandson and not granddaughter? Because the ang-gu-kuehs are sharp-edged! That’s something I learnt from the show 😀
While it may not be the full fledged set as according to the hokkien tradition, it still feels more heartwarming as compared to receiving those full-month vouchers that we have been seeing these years.
星期一傍晚回到家的时候, 发现组屋楼下开了”档”。因为已经围起来了, 所以看不见过世者是谁。今天早上就跟妈妈聊了起来, 发现原来过世者是七楼的卖菜 auntie。
我愣了一下。几个星期前我还跟她聊过天呢! 看起来好好的, 怎么走得这么突然?!
