Chinese matrimonial charm

Mom dropped this on my desk …

Me: What’s this?
Mom: It’s a matrimonial charm. It worked for your cousins in Penang. They swear by it.
Me: So you are saying that my natural charm and good looks aren’t good enough?
Mom: Well no, but we all know that you can do with some help.
Me: Who’s “we”?
Mom: Never mind, just put it in your wallet ok?

If it works, you’ll read about it here first. :mrgreen:

    Eh? I thot the chinese coins charm is more for wealth and money luck.
    Tell your mom, for matrimonial you should use mandarin duck or double happiness charm instead.

    I thought its usually girls that gets presented with stuff like that,but I was wrong.At least she didn’t try to burn you a charm and make you drink charred pieces of paper…..No, I didn’t do that but I had seen it forced down the throat of my cousin:)

    Lol. Once one reaches the 30’s and without a partner in sight, parents simply turn a quiverring nervous wrecks ;). Double happiness jade charm – well, it doesnt hurt to simply carry it around now does it? hehehhee

    Wilson: it’s jade actually, and not coins.

    nasilemak: you think? hahahah! I have drank charred-pieces of paper before but it was for a different reason.

    mirebella: no it doesn’t hurt to carry it around. Just as well it’s not that bulky. Heheh.

    Katie: no they don’t! I think this is her last ditch attempt. Dad don’t really care so much. Hahah!

    Eh, I’ve drank water with burnt paper before. Tasted horrible. Anyway, that’s besides the point. Aiya… make an entry proposing a date to one of your readers and the one selected can win a charm and a happy family? Sure got replies wan. :p

    I always admire this stuff. It makes you so ummm “chinese” and it raise curiousity among friends πŸ™‚

    I’ve got a charm before, in a form of a necklace. One day, it suddenly break in two, out of nowhere. I was wondering why, until the next day when my parents told me that apparently, a competitor of my dad’s trying to do some evil thing to my dad, by hurting me. And apparently, the jade necklace “protected” me. Believe it or not πŸ™‚
