    Default Taboo.

    I just shaved off my hair just now on impulse, feeling cool now, but then my family didn't really like it, and they know I'm shooting for a friend's wedding on saturday.

    They say it's a taboo. And it's a christian wedding I'm shooting for. I dunnoe but is it really a taboo? I don't really believe in such things, so it never occured to me that others might see it as a taboo. I think all I can do now is to wear a cap on saturday.

    What do you folks think of shaving hair? They say in the bible it's done when they mourn. So I guess it's a taboo and wrong thing of me to do. I shaved also cos next monday I'm going for ICT, thought it would be cooler for me.

    And worse, I got driving tomorrow, I hope I can practice with my cap on and hope my instructor don't ask me to take it off

    Well, there's about 5mm left on my head all around, shorter then BMT style.

    My sister says it's a taboo, so just polling around in kopitiam here see the response.

    Cos I'll feel bad if that day I go shoot and my friend's relatives/parents don't like, I don't mind getting into trouble, but I don't like to get others into trouble.

    Shaving of the head in Christian aspect (basing it on Anglican/ Lutheran/ Presbi/ Methodist theological arguements), has NO implication to wedding and stuffs... no mourning or whatever.

    Dun worry, it's practical and in view of the recent weather, I think it will be cooler. I'm sure your parents' wouldn't want you to kenna any heat injury during training

    If uncomfortable about how the wedding couple would comment, just wear a cap.. works everytime!

    Whether you believe in this or not doesn't matter, but the couple or their parents may believe in it, so better you ask beforehand, I guess. I never heard of it, eventhough I went to a Roman Catholic Highschool myself, but then again I am not a Christian. To me it is a supersticious thing, and I doubt it has anything to do with Christianity, it may be a local thing.

    Kewl. Thanks for the clarifications SniperD

    Actually, I'm not afraid of the couple, they probably won't mind anything at all, actually me more afraid of the relatives/parents don't like, you know, old folks

    Yep will be wearing my cap there. Thanks folks!

    Well just imagine me with no hair, anyway you'll see me on sunday with a cap. You're welcome to snap me, but then must snap my back cannot snap face... and in return you must let me snap you How's that? Your portrait for mine.

    Think it's quite a big hoo-ha to see a bald guy walking around my estate and in office. Lucky fo me my boss not around and monday I go back camp. Heehee.
