Daughter-in-Law

There’s this uncle who delivers food during lunch. Sometimes we tapao from him, like today.

Instead of leaving after delivering as what he normally does, he stayed on for a while. He followed us to the pantry and interviewed us, the three girls.

He looked at me and asked, “Are you a student?”

I was like…

I mean I don’t expect someone to ask me that question when I’m in the office.

You see. How lah now? Should I do something about my face?

Seriously, I get that question a lot. And when I tell them I’m already working, they look at me again, as though they can’t believe what I’m saying is true. Why? Tell me why.

He carried on asking where I stay, where I graduated from, how do I come to work. Then, he told me an alternative to LDP. Take the road to Bandar Kinrara, then you come out at Old Klang Road, then you can go straight home, no jam. Only takes 5 minutes more. So sesiapa yang tahu laluan ni, boleh shed some light? I have no idea how to connect Bandar Kinrara to Old Klang Road.

After asking the three of us, he said, “I just want to see who’s talkative, who’s quiet and who’s …” I can’t remember exactly what he said.

“I’m actually scouting for a daughter-in-law.”

😮

I’ve never seen anyone being so direct. Normally you see mothers trying to hook up their son or daughters with someone. In this case, it’s the father. So funny!

I wanted to laugh throughout the conversation because that uncle is funny. But have to tahan, cannot simply laugh. We were so hungry already but have to listen to him talk. He speaks perfect English.

The nice thing about second chance is that when you started out like shit, you have the chance to impress again. And when you do, it’s like lighting a bomb. Mengegarkan!

Sometimes, it’s easier to forgive than to be angry even if you can’t help but be very angry.

I love working life even though it means being in my cubicle for 9 hours or so. I like to see the amount increasing in my bank account like today. Like got magic like that. And like got magic like that, it decreases very soon. I like the fact that I can buy things that I like. I like the fact that I’m responsible for my own financial well-being.

On the 13th Day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me

13 hopping bunnies!

Kidding!

Was at Pappy’s friend’s house last night for a Christmas party. Big, nice house and yet the host said it’s just a simple house. 😮

Good food.

I had a glass of wine. I think I’ve had the most wine in these two days. Not that I drink a lot. Add them up, it’s only one glass wine full. I don’t know how far or how much I could drink but I always keep it to a minimum. One glass only. Nice!

All of us had to sing song after the dinner. Twelve Days of Christmas.

I was paired with Mummy and we were the fifth pair so we had to sing the part where it says, “On the fifth day of Christmas”. FIVE GOLDEN RINGSSSSSS!

Everyone took turns to sing according to the number of day they were assigned. It was fun because each time a person sings wrongly, we had to start all over again.

So today, I had a hard time waking up. Traffic was very smooth today because most are on leave. Now, I’m just waiting for the new year to come.

Cinta

Mummy wanted to watched Cinta so much. She read about it in the papers. I knew there was such a movie but I just didn’t bother watching it. And because it was released on 30 November, not all cinemas are showing it now. Luckily, TGV still does and today, the three of us, Mummy, Pappy (who just flew in to KL yesterday) and me, went for the movie.

Upon entering the cinema, someone sitting at the row behind us said, “Eh, Cina ke? Jarang.”

She was trying to say jarang ada cina yang tengok wayang melayu.

Pappy turned around and gave her a cheeky smile, trying to say, “Yes, Cina dan kami tengok wayang Melayu juga.” with that smile of his.

Seriously, we were the only Chinese. But it’s not my first time. The last time I went with Pappy, that also he brought me to watch a Malay movie, called Soal Hati. And that also, he told me at the end of the movie that he cried. Suddenly, he became emotional pula and I didn’t cry also. Must be something that reminded him of something from the past.

Cinta, is a very good movie. Very nice. You will feel so good after watching it. I cried at one part, where there’s this scene of a little girl being torned apart by her parents’ divorce. She could only stay with one parent and was so reluctant to see her father go. Her mother chose to be with another guy, who happened to be her kind of guy she has always longed to be with. She hugged him like she so sayang him like that and she stopped crying only when her father told her he’s going to be fine.

There are 5 modern love stories entwined into 1 movie. I love Sharifah Amani. Excellent dialogue. The movie setting is very Malaysian so it feels very real and it feels like home.

At times, crying a little during a movie makes you feel so good after that. It does the trick. I was very happy after that. Feeling so warm inside.

The background music, I loved it to. It’s Cinta by Melly Goeslow and Kris Dayanti. Both are Indonesian singers that I like. But the movie version was sung by Misha Omar and Jaclyn Victor.

Oklor, tidur.

I love you.
