Generation gap

#2 son : Awww….marn….don’t torture me

5xmom : What torture?

#2 son : When we do that, you scream at us

5xmom : Ya mah, you all wan so noisy, I can go gila you know

#2 son : You sudah ketinggalan zaman la, ho sim la, go and update yourself. (you are behind time, for goodness sake)

5xmom : Oi, you watch it wor, you think I very old meh

#2 son : Please laaaaaaa….I beg you…… turn off your Yahoo Launchcast or I report you for penderaan anak (child abuse). Or you come, I teach you what is music.

5xmom : OK lah, then you promise you won’t play that stupid St. Andreas PS2 music so loud, cannot turn on the volume of the station from your computer too loud. Or else, I whole day sing love songs and if that is not enough, I sing gospel songs. Somemore not enough, I sing Chinese opera, you want? I ada lagi kerng mya, now I choir practice, I can also sing Latin songs. *muahahahaha*

#2 son : Amah….. (slap forehead) you think your voice very nice ah?

5xmom : Who cares……as long as I got voice, enuff la.

#2 son and 5xmom make peace. No one is allowed to turn on the music from their respective computer/TV/PS2 too loud because we have a huge generation gap that cannot be bridge where taste for music is concerned. But we have one pet hate – Barney songs. But funnily, both Barney VCDs are missing and toddler had not been watching Barney for 3 days already. Woo hoo! Peace on earth.

  1. Tolerance between parents and children are vital in one family,especially when they are teenagers.They want to have their own privacy,their own freedom,their own room,their own decision and stuff.This is when they least want their parents to intefere.However,being parents,they keep on want to campur tangan.Idea clashes.Arguement happens.Then when parents don’t know what to say anymore,rotan is the way to force them to accept the parents’ suggestion. Sighz…it happens most of the time.This might sound a little out of topic though,but it happen because of the generation gap.because each generation was raised by two different ideas,thinking and stuff. 🙂

    Hmm,it is happy to see that #2 willing to tolerate and 5xmom giving him an option as well.I sumtimes do hope my mum does that,but she never (During those days.)sad case…

  2. Heheh… what were you listening to?
    There was a time when my mom used to wake me up on Sunday mornings with her Theresa Teng playing too loud.

  3. GUB2 – Hey, I can sing the chorus too. Though I don’t know what I am singing. Especially that ‘yeh liang’ song.
    Jason – Go blog it.

  4. Headphones seem to be the obvious solution with an added advantage: You can pretend not to hear your kids whining for their meals.
    What do you listen to anyway? Come to the Bloggers chat room. Pokkufm (aka Radio Pencen) plays request.
