Are you superstitious?

Little darling always said...when you eat your food, you have to eat them clean and neat. There should be no left over, as all food uneaten is a waste. Just imagine, there are those who are so poor, might not have any food to eat. She speaks like my mother who cares and had superstitious in belief. The typical Chinese believes that all rice on a food plate or bowl has to be cleared or well eaten without a single rice be left over on it. If a person who has such bad eating habit, would normally end up marrying an ugly wife or husband who isn't handsome. Their faces would be rough with pimple holes.


Whether is true or untrue, I have to believe my mother and luckily little darling is my reminder. However I am puzzled, she has good eating habit but yet I am not handsome and has many old pimple holes. Whereas I am a lousy and careless food eater, I have a pretty little darling whose face is smooth like silk. She has to explain!!!

Superstitious belief is a mystic which is unpredictable and unreliable. Perhaps logic and common sense are more practical in life. Eat what you can consume and spend what you can afford. Then there should be no wastage. On the woman and man, I think the heart is more important than the face. Do you agree?

Food for the thought - "Superstition sets the whole world in flames; philosophy quenches them." - Voltaire
