Oh great, another wake!!!
Last night wasnt too bad...it had caught everyone by surprise, so apart from the traditional brass band, early in the evening, & a few drummings & chantings throughout the night, things were relatively quiet...
Because she was only 50 yrs old, her kids , ranging in age from late teens, early 20's, are seeing her out in modern style!
Which means Vietnamese current music !!!!
AT TOP VOLUME!!!! The volume that makes you leave a concert, or a club, with your ears ringing!
I LOVE Vietnam, but one of the things I do NOT love is modern Vietnamese music....
They are keen on soppy ballads...droning, whining....the Vietnamese version of sad songs...bloody awful!!!
Bad enough at a normal volume, but suicide invoking when LOUD!
I'm about ready to rip my ears off!!!!
It is now 11.30pm, 3 hours in, & everything is rattling on the shelves in my room...
I have just been downstairs, & Poppa landlord is wildeyed & frazzled looking...Lol
The thing is that even though we are being forced to be awake, we cant watch TV, do much on the computer, read...because it is too loud to hear or concentrate on anything!
The zen calm I have achieved , since living here, is beginning to fray at the edges...lol
In the 10 mins it has taken me to write this, they have now switched to a Karaoke machine!!!
So...we are now getting ear aching, soppy ballads, sung out of tune!
I might just go kill myself!!!!
At least, the recently deceased is being spared this torture...LUCKY HER!!!!!
