Fuang! and be healed…

January 30, 2009 at 4:55 pm 7 comments

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? πŸ™‚

    oh,yes! i think it only runs in OUR family… coz Fahd will always demand his ayah tu ‘fuang’ him and will not stop whining of pain until and unless ayah ‘fuang’ him… miraculously, after ‘fuang-ing’ him, Fahd will literally stop complaining… and Bad has learnt the magic of ‘fuang’ hahaha

    Adam pun kena ‘fuang’ dulu baru stop whining… kita terer tau hahahaha

    My girl’s version of fuang is slightly more formal. “mummy, can u pls kiss the pain away?” πŸ™‚

    So I guess that’sfuang too, eh?

    “fuak taka balik pintu, budak nakal memang macam tu…fuhhh!” and the pain will go away…kuangkuangkuang….
