I saw this tweet pic from Roy Bennett, @inspiringthinkn:
“Christmas is love in action.”
In essence, that is true because we celebrate the birth of Christ, that God sent his only son Jesus to come to earth and to prepare him to die for our sins on the cross. How often we neglect and forget the real meaning of Christmas when we are busy in the celebration and revelry of the season.
For me, Christmas this year is a time when I gather with old friends and family to celebrate the season and enjoy the warmth in the company!
So on Tuesday night while on the way home after my dinner with Sandy, just as we were parting which is close to Katong plaza, the one next to Roxy, in between marine parade road and Katong, I got serious creeps that I have never gotten before because there was a mini (1/2 the size of what you’d see the normal stages) ge tai with a toy puppet show and a cast of elderly behind singing and playing Chinese instruments and of course coordinating the puppets.
As you might know by now, I Rebonded my hair (been announcing it on Twitter and Instagram I think) on Sunday so it’s now silky smooth and bounces off my back when I walk.
So as I walked off from the mini ge tai I couldn’t help but look because the entire crew was playing to – get this – no one at all. It was an empty
Audience, but we local Chinese know its not for the living that they are performing.
And as I turned around, I felt like someone or something was brushing against my back.
Logically it is my hair that is bouncing off my back.
But it couldn’t possibly be that l didn’t notice the sensation from the past two days and this one felt different.
If it isn’t my hair that’s causing the sensation – I DON’T WANT TO KNOW!
So immediately I picked up my pace , and I also held my hair in place and walked quickly to my bus top opposite the place.
And I said a quick prayer. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus who is in me is greater than he who is in the world (or netherworld for that matter). And I immediately felt better.
Texted my tummy Sandy and told her the place gives me the creeps! Told her that I’m also gonna avoid all these stages for the entire month! While waiting for the bus to come it started to drizzle…
