Black

Some Chinese people think the color black represents bad luck and they avoid using black as a main color in any celebration. Birthday celebrations too, the color black is ‘pantang’ ('taboo', in Malay). Really, don’t challenge their taboo! It might lead to an unpleasant situation and it seems black really can bring bad luck at that moment… (Recently, in the news ‘a few’ Malaysians are sensitive to see people wearing black cloth, sigh.)
We attended Steve’s cousin’s birthday party; it was a surprise party for her 50th. I noticed that they used black as the theme color, like black balloons, food service set, cake icing, and candles. They also put a ‘Ms. Over the Hill’ sash on her. I like this kind of playful and open-minded attitude…
