Fuang! and be healed…
I’m not sure if this only runs in my family, but usually when any of the kids bumped their heads, or fell, or had itchy mosquito bites, and comes running to any of the adults and complain,
Tatitttt…! (that’s sakit, the Imtiyaz way of talking)
We, the adults, would do an act of blowing while uttering the word,
… and poof! The pain is gone… psychologically, of course! And the kids would run off happily ‘healed’ by the magic word.
I didn’t know it had a great psycho effect on the kids, until recently.
Imtiyaz complained ‘tatittt’ and looking at it, I forgot the magic word, and told him I’d get some ointment to rub on.
And he went,
Mama… FUANG me!
Errr… any of you have been fuang-ing or been fuang-ed before? 🙂
