Remember in the old days when I was a primary-six schoolboy, I was very curious about ghosts and also always imagined that I was not afraid of those “dirty stuff”. As you can see in the painting, I painted myself on the left, below the word - “COOL!”, acting like a “Ghost-proof Hero”!

But in reality, deep down I knew that I was very afraid of those “dirty stuff” then - painted in the middle and bottom of the canvas, where a group of school boys was shown visiting the haunted house. Ha! Ha! Can you recognize which boy was me?

Whilst I was painting halfway, one question popped into my mind - “Why was it that we only wanted to look for ghosts at that time, but not God???”
