This month is called Ghost Month by the ethnic Chinese. So I think the best thing to do during the Ghost Month is to tell a ghost story. Am I not right?
I've never seen a ghost. However, I can smell her presence. She was my grandmother on my mother's side. My grandmother passed away when I was 12 or 13.
She would rub her legs or hands when pain with Tienchi Rheumatism Oil bought from my father in Singapore. The oil has a very strong odor.
That's how I smell her presence.
Whenever I smell the strong odor, I knew she could be in my house. I will ask my mother whether she has applied the oil. Sometimes my mother did, most of the time I will remain silent because I know she's here.
I'm not afraid of her presence. Because I know she will not harm me or my family. Maybe she's just missing us.
