Yes, that?s what they keep, no more though for now. They believe every child bring their own luckiness. And Javanese people here keep this phrase: mangan ora mangan ngumpul (means: to eat or not to eat, the most important is to be together). Doesn?t make sense eh? It is. But it is working for them. May be this is why people here still can survive even they got not much income (I can say too few) monthly.
