Just received a call from MIL. There’s a buyer for my car. It was barely a week after the decision to sell off my car who has been sitting there collecting dust and depreciating as day goes by. So, I should be delighted when the good news came right? (more ca$$hh in bank)…… but,
why do I feel the sudden’ mm seh tak’? Just a car wat….. (my hubs said). Maybe it’s because it’s less than a year since I bought it. I’m quite sentimental when it comes to my belogings leh (I told hubs)… I am, really am.
The worse is the buyer wants the car immediately (today if possible), cash buyer wor. Geehz.. so kan cheong and these people are rich! 130k cash??? I told MIL to hold until the banker’s cheques is cleared, all paper work done and I see the monies in my bank. I trust no one when it comes to money.
I guess I will not get the chance to say bye to him (car) personally…. It does sound like it was just yesterday I blogged about it, arrggh.. but.. what the heck.. just a car.. just a car… just a car… just a car!!!! (sad face)
Bye ‘just a car’……
I’m really speechless about my maid. I asked her to go buy two packs of chicken rice from a nearby kopitiam and gave her $10. Period. Pretty straight forward instruction right?
After a while she came back and I opened up my chicken rice and saw wow.. so much (rice and chicken meat). Can feed an elephant (ok.. exaggerated but it’s really a lot). I was a little surprised but never thought much about it and continued eating. Maybe uncle seller miang, likes my maid so much and gave more chicken?? Don’t care la. Eat first.
Later I asked my maid, how much is the chicken rice (there are two serving, small $2.50, big $3.00). The last time I asked her to buy, I instructed her to buy two small packs @ 2.50 each. So this time round I thought maybe she forgot and bought the $3 per pack instead.
Then to my dismay, my horror, my surprise, my curiousity, my my my holy sh-it… she said it’s $5 per pack. OMG!!!!! I said how come so expensive. I knew prices soared up etc but 100% hike on chicken rice is simply not possible. Hak sei yan meh???
I repeated after her “$5 per pack???” I looked at her (trying to control my cool for having such a blur sotong maid) and kept mum. Next, she has the cheek to said these to me “Ooo.. yea… last time $2.50. Sorry mom, I told him $5″. Now I’m curious. There were way too much chicken for a $2.50 price tag but may be too little for $5 too. (Putting on CSI cap) Maybe she telan my $5 by sacrificing some of her chickens and gave the meat to me? I really don’t know and I don’t want to be judgemental. All these while, she has been pretty honest and trustworthy.
See, I’m so geram (furious) not because of the money. Afterall, it’s just a small amount. But I want the truth. I can tolerate having a blur sotong maid, but I will not accept a dishonest person in the house. I’m about to take my nap now before I grill her further later. I’m good at grilling for answers… after 16 years of training on my hubs. Kakakakaaka….
First of all, thanks to all who tagged me. That only shows you remember this blur sotong mommy despite me being far away from home (not that far actually). But shamefully I also have to admit, I’ve been really slack and I have at least more than 10 tags homework to complete. I must apologise for the long delay. Give this lazy mommy more time ya….
This is one I owe ECL… since caveman era (oki oki.. a bit exagerated but by no means it is that long overdue). There are a few I owe way before ECL’s but more complicated so I better do the simple one first.
This is how my desktop looks like. so many folders, files, applications etc. In short: M-E-S-S-Y

After skipping many afternoon naps and burning lots of midnight oil, finally I finished all the 60 episodes of the Hong Kong TVB Series called The Drive of Life (????).
Of all the stars, one that I really liked most is the guy name Feng Shao Feng (mainland China actor) who played the role “Wah Zhen Man”, Myolie Wu’s boyfriend/husband in the series. His role is not big in the movie but surely leaves an impression for me to search for his real name. Kakakakaka….. (Mr Lim don’t get jealous ya…)
