dearest mama

mama can be so hilarious sometimes...today, i was bad-mouthing someone we mutually know and she told me to stop doing that...she said God's punishment is very resolute and swift...and the proof was, she was doing the same thing earlier today, u know the bad-mouthing, with someone else on the phone...she said she spent a long time enumerating her points and she even talked in different positions, sideways and even laying down on the floor, that's how long she babbled on and on about this person...so she ran out of time to cook lunch for my sister, alin before alin went to school (i missed alin so much!she's so cute and adorable, even when she's being a pain in the *ss)...so she rushed and bam, the whole tub of processed chilli went spilling on the kitchen floor...she had to take more time to clean it up and her hands felt hot after handling the chilli....now she had to boil some more chilli and blend it to make a chilli paste...so the moral of the story is, she believed it's God's subtle way to punish her for talking about that certain someone behind her back...


then i was telling her about my conversation with that same person (see the difference here, not bad-mouthing, more like reciting an earlier conversation)...and there she went, it's like i'm providing her an avenue to do her opening salvo and she went with a gusto!she went off like a rocket, talking how that certain someone is always annoying and that person's other annoying traits...i can't even slid a word sideways...wait...didn't she just said that God's punishment is swift in relation to bad-talking about someone?hehehe...my mama is surely one of the funniest person that i know...


after that, i asked her to send alin to auckland for a visit...jaja and gegel are so busy with school that i don't think they can sneak 2-3 weeks visit in between classes, exams and proposals...and aboy is in his la-la-wonderland of a high school, the Victoria Institution (sheesh, i wonder why the VI boys are always so passionate about their school...the school admins must have sneak a potion in their canteen food or something, or drug them, or brain-washed them to love their school to the point of obsession and madness) and i'm pretty sure he won't even think of leaving his dearest even for 5 mins...that's left with with alin...so i keep begging mama to send alin here...


and mama's response was (the same response even after i made this request more than 5 times, previously):

'i don't want my darling girl to go missing!u know, what's with the drug and kidnapping and organ/young girls selling these days...no young girl is safe!'

okay, i get the point...but then again, isn't it too exaggerating when she allowed alin to hang out with her friends at the malls in KL?isn't it way unsafer than sending her through a meticulously guarded KLIA and auckland airport?isn't there many creeps hanging around in KL who would love to get their hands on innocent young girls compared to, let's say, the aircraft?my mom even ended her sentence with:

'i don't want to cry after things happen, so i'd rather be safe than sorry'

....with obvious relish, like this is some malay drama playing on tv1 (i don't even watch those crappy dramas anymore!)...anyhow, mama u have to stop allowing alin to hang out with her *iatch friends (well, they are rich and vain, and more importantly shallow, what more can i say about alin's friends?) at the crowded, way unsafe malls in KL!KL is the hotbed for crimes, i'm not glossing this over, so i'm being frank...i can hang out in auckland cbd (that's the city, stands for central business district) until 3-4 am in the morning and i can still feel safe to walk back alone at night...where else in KL, i can stand to go out until 10 pm-12 am max, if it's later than that, i get baba to fetch me home, that's how unsafe KL is...


i missed mama...she's a drama queen but she's my mama...she complains a lot but she wants the best for her children...at the end of the day, she always recite on the neighbours activities even though she doesn't really care about what they do (and seriously, all of us don't really care what our neighbours do, they can have a lively party 7 nights a week for all we care, excepting the smelly cats they keep, that we hate!not the cats, they are innocent, it's the neigbours for being insensitive jerks who don't clean them and expect mama to take care of their cats...get a life!)...


mama also hates hospitals and doctors and medicine (all things associated to sickness, i understand, with her background and history)...she goes to certain lengths to avoid them (we know, remember the trick we pull to get her into ampang puteri hospital for her anemia years ago?) and have to be reminded over and over again to take her pills (she even cut some pills in half, what's the point there in eating half a pill when u r supposed to take it whole?)...mama who always drives in silence and a great critic of jaja's driving (jaja is a manic driver!), to the point that jaja avoids driving with mama ('no jaja!u r supposed to stop when the traffic light turns orange, not speed up!' when she herself does that)...mama who loves her strawberry t-shirt (yikes, it's not the colour we have problem with, it's the real-to-goodness large strawberry pasted in front of the t-shirt for all the world to see from 1 km away!) and gets suspicious that we stole that t-shirt now that it's missing (thank God it's missing!it's hideous!)...


mama who has a new hobby every now and then (now her new-old hobby is sewing...she's sewing jaja's prize-giving ceremony dress, a baju kurung moden, right now)...mama who said everyone claimed she looked young (she indeed is looking way young compared to her real age and then said that baba looked way old with an obvious relish) as if it's a surprising thing...mama who always claims that alin is my protege in getting on her nerves by always being late for everything...mama who talks to her flowers and plants, as she claimed that they need to be treated well by talking as they will blossom if we do that (what the...???)...mama who always blames everyone if she sees a scratch, however minor it is, on her car...mama who tells us not to sit on the living hall couches so that they won't smell and sag and sit on the marble floor instead (isn't the point of having couches is for us to sit?)...mama who tells us that we are all smelly and need to take more careful showers (everyone is smelly excepting her...then again she took minimum 3 showers a day!)....


she loves to cook her children's favourite food and nag about the smallest things...she cares so much about her siblings and my grandma and tries her best to help them when she can, from when she was a young girl until now (even though some of them are stupid and users and take her for granted)...she's also brusque sometimes but we know she loves us anyway (even though we test her patience every seconds like waking up at 4 pm everyday, quarreling from the time we open our eyes till we close them and not helping her with house chores much)...mama has a lot of endearing traits that i can't even quote here and now...we love u mama...u r the best and only mama in this whole wide world!


this is my special dedication to my dearest mama, all the way from auckland to kl...happy mother's day mama!
with love, nana...
