Yes, LennyeTran. But there is something strange in my country. In wedding, the bride often wears a long white dress because it is purity. But in funeral, everybody also wears white clothes. I have asked my teacher, she didn't answer my question. I answered her "why white color is purity while it is also bad luck?" :? I don't understand! :roll:


I hope when you find out the answer, you can share with us. :D

I would like to know the answer too.


Although I am Vietnamese I don't know it clearly. White is color which have been interested in most in my country. The pupils from the elementary school to high school most of them have to wear white uniform. The bride like wearing long white dress and in funeral, they often wear white clothes, too. !?!?! What a strange!

Okay, I was checking at wikipedia to see if they actually have an article about white color, and they do. Well, here it is in Vietnamese. You can scroll down at the bottom for the info.

I think the explanation is pretty accurate since we Vietnamese didn't wear white wedding dresses back then. Red was our color for the wedding dresses.

That's nonsense. Personally, I hate pink. And blue is my favorite color.

But you know, when people couldn't tell the baby was a boy or a girl, the parents would dress that baby in either pink or blue to tell others what gender that baby is. When they see a baby in a pink dress, they would automatically think that boy was a girl; and if that baby is in blue clothes, he's a boy. Also, parents would not even try to dress their boys in pink clothes. Little girls can wear both blue and pink, but the boys can't.

I know, that's a tradition here, too. Personally, when I have a baby, it's not gonna wear just blue or pink :D Especially since I dislike pink.

I like children (newborn especially)to look like small YELLOW chicken! 8) But my nephew looks like an adult wearing brown velvet trousers, but I agree most of his clothes are dark blue... weird... Why it it so? boys - blue, ladies - pink... I don't like it either. :P

As far as i'm concerned... I changed my hair-cut 2 years ago and became red. Soo now no one consider me as a brown-hair lady anymore! I guess It influenced a bit on my behavior, I became open-minded, self confident (though still not enough)... :oops:

This story raised a question that should children be raised as a boy or a girl based on society's gender-based expectations? Would they be better off without these expectations? etc. It's really nice to read.

Thanks for the story, Lennye! "It's not easy to be yourself". And it's almost impossible to raise a child without paying any attention to it's gender...
I appreciate every link you give, guys! I hardly could find it on my own... :wink:

We used this story for our English class and psychology of childhood class. We had a great discussion about it. I'll post more links about this kinda stories if you'd like. :wink:

I'll appreciate! Especially I liked the end, when you think that everything is over and you can predict it, all the story, the end is something you didn't expect! I like it! :wink:

I didn't get the end when I first read it, you know. I was like, "what the hell is a Y?!?!?!?" but then I started to understand what it meant, and everything was clear. Man, I just wish I could do that to life. It's an extraordinary achievement when you can find the only key that opens up everything about life.
