Before I begin sharing, two things first. Firstly, I have got a mole on my forehead,small but rather conspicuous and secondly I am always happy to meet up with old friends.
Bumped into a very old friend,someone whom I have not met for at least 10 years or so, he was once a boss running a travel agent catering to back packers, loved going to his shop cos got loads of "mat saleh" there,(if you know what I mean)
The excitement was mutual from the both of us,meeting up with an old friend, he told me that he'd quit his travel business and he had been running a little "temple" on his own,a kind of self declared "abbot".
After short exchange of pleasantries, he suddenly took notice of the mole on my forehead,then he said in Mandarin, giving me those "heavenly jargon" that sounded so alien to me.
With all the jest,he said that I could alter my destiny and thus improve my total being,,and that will bring about good fortune to me,particularly my business, cheekily I asked him how would he do it,with a big grin on his face,he said he needed to perform certain rituals and that could only take place in his little "temple"
Again, I asked him would he charge me like he said in helping me to improve my "total being" ,reservedly he said,he would not charge a single cent for "consultation" but if the performing of the ritual required "extra remedies" then that would be discussed later and that to me sounded dubious.
As an old friend, I thought it would be nice just to be open to him that I would not be interested in his "help" by telling me that I was a Christian but he was really affable at this end and good with his words. He then said to me that he had helped "Christians" before also.
I knew I had to digress just to elude his onslaught of "advices", I just asked for his phone no,telling him that I would call him if I needed his "help"
I am not a very religious kind of person but I believe we must always be careful about people offering us "divine advices" and I really abhor those who victimize others especially during one's darkest despair.
By the way,I do like the mole on my forehead,I don't think I need to perform anything on it,,kekekkekekek
P/S : Keep a good heart, keep praying because "tough time will never last but tough people do"
