    WANT TO MAKE GOOD & EASY MONEY DURING THE HUNGRY GHOST FESTIVAL? TRY THIS!

    As the Gate of Hell opened last night, scores of Singaporean began the age old tradition of burning incense and money to the deceased. But did you know, for the brave, desperate and foolhardy, this is also the time to strike it rich and make some serious cash.

    Rumour has it that selling salt in a cemetery is one of the easiest ways to earn fast money. Wanting to preserve their decomposing bodies/states, spirits roaming the Earth need salt, lots of it to maintain their presence. And when there's a demand, supplying this demand would make one loads of money.

    First, any prospective salt seller has to pack his salt into multiple packets such that his supply will never run out for the night. After that, just before dusk, make his/her way to a suitable spot in the cemetery and sit down comfortably while bowing your heads. Then comes the waiting game, the salt seller has to be patient and follow the rules of this trade.

    It is rumoured that the two important rules are: 1) Never look up at all times during his stint in the cemetery 2) Never fall asleep or leave the selected spot until the day breaks. If one violates any of these rules, your life would be in grave danger.

    If one is able to resist the urge to peep at the "customers", the buyers would put the money onto the seller's hands after taking the salt. When the morning finally arrives, quickly pack up and leave with your stack of money. According to those who tried it before, these are not hell bank notes but cold hard legal tender.

    I saw this being circulated in facebook so i posted this for general knowledge that there is such a belief. There are all sorts of strange and exotic practices that exists in this world. If we do not believe in it, we can always treat it like reading tabloid entertainment. This story was also being discussed before.

    I am not sure what you are trying to imply here and I could not see anything offensive in this thread that i have posted. This is not the first time you pass sarcastic remarks directed towards me. I don't remember offending you in any manner in the past. This kind of sarcastic remarks made by you for the purpose of provoking people and trying to pick up a quarrel is totally uncalled for. Kindly be courteous and refrain from any ill-intended speech towards anybody here.

    Dear Oat1, take it with a pinch of salt, if you can't see the joke in it. But you're right, I definitely have no love for you and guess what, lots of people hate my guts here, I would say more than they hate yours if i'm going to worried about what others feel about me, then the ground i'm standing on is not firm at all. Good luck and Good day.

    LORL. The one who first suggested selling salt to ghost his/her real agenda is really want to: Tua Lee Kee Holland.

    Many age old traditions like Japanese, Pagan, etc. believed salt has this property to ward of evil spirit, ghost, etc.

    Any macho man/woman wanna try bring salt to cemetery please like us know the outcome.

    One of the funniest joke I have ever heard this one...

    I agree with you in some sense. What we do reflects our mind. In that sense yes, only if you like or dislike will your actions reflect.
