jin loves to eat at home, June 14-20, 2010

For the elders in my family, fortune telling is a BIG thing. Astrology, palm reading, tarot, psychic reading, horoscope, numerology, down to the placement of moles on your face and body – beware, they all mean something!

When you open shop, you look at the Chinese calendar for good opening date. When you travel, you look at the calendar again for a good day to fly. Before you even think of marrying someone, you go to the fortune teller with your names, dates and time of birth to see if you are a good match, whether you bring luck to each other, how many children you will bear, etc, etc. If the fortune teller approves and you are finally ready to settle down, you go back to the same guy so he may dictate how you should go about probably the most important day of your life.

Yes, fortune telling is a big thing with the elders in my family.

Sometimes I wonder if my mom also consults with the fortune teller what food she prepares for us at home.
