My eldest son is getting his Confirmation tomorrow. Before that, they have to choose a Saint’s name for their confirmation. All my children were given an ‘English’ name in front of their surname followed by their odd sounding Chinese names (picked by some fengshui master before they weren’t even born), all of which are registered in their birth certs.
Eldest son is the most cincai guy and dilly-dally with picking a name. I suggested, Stephen and Kevin. But he doesn’t like it. So, my hubby did something that surprised me. He asked my son to use his name! Well, his Chinese name sounds like ‘English’ name and everyone knows and call him by that name.
Hubby said all the other sons are going to use the name. How nice! Just like some dynasty like that.
There is this joke about two pastors, a Methodist and Baptist and a Catholic priest. They were having problems with bats building nests in their respective churches’ roofs. The two pastors told the Catholic priests that no matter what they do and how they chase the bats away, these bats still return to build their nests and dirty the churches.
The Catholic priest then smugly told the two pastors that he doesn’t have the problem. So, they asked him what he had done to the bats. [tag]Catholic[/tag] priest said, “Easy, I just confirmed them and they flew off and no longer return to church.”
Bwahahaha…you see, once these 16 years old youngsters are confirmed, it spells the end of their weekly religious (cathecism) classes. So, most of them disappeared from the church altogether.
Have a good weekend to all!
