Hot topic that just cross my mind. Is the above question an insult or compliment? Tell me, tell me.
If it comes from my sons, they are very prejudiced btw, it is an insult but I take it as a compliment. Just yesterday, one of my kid said he wanted to pierce his ear (only one). I was driving home from Tesco, like all housewives do, buy eggs and sugar. I go, ‘Siao ah, that will be so ghey.” I had been badly influenced by Mike, I know. I even pronounced the ghey with the ‘h’ prominently loud. Then, we went into debate about it and usually, it will end up with my kids telling me, ‘you are not acting your age’. That I hope is they see me younger but I am like an old lady. (we debate about ear piercing next time ok?)
Then, this morning, Sweetspirit, blogger from Aussie said this :
I do not act my age as i play xbox ps2 , roller blade basketball.
(OMG, Sweetspirit even told her frens about me!!! She linked me!!! giggles)
I too used to play computer games like Stronghold, Age of Mythology, Sims to name a few. And when my sons’ school friends (15 yrs old now) dropped by, I had joined in their conversations with the games strategies and cheat codes etc. But these are now put on hold with the arrival of my toddler. Must make mental to start ‘Not acting my age again’
So, mature women, yikes sound so porn-ish. No make that, wise women, what do you feel if someone tells you, you are not acting your age?
1) Want to slap the person for insulting you? Meaning he/she said you fatt hou/naik miang/turn lusty.
2) Swoon and start twirling your hairs, giggles and blush? Then, go out and buy something trendy?
3) Go home and cry your heart out because people accused you of being older than you thought. And burn your husband pockets on La Mer, SKII, Marie France and plastic surgery?
4) Come to 5xmom and ask what that means?
Now, the tricky question. Hahahaha, I am extra daring today. Testing my luck. What age do I act? Remember…it is a tricky question. Someone said I have the enegertic mind of a 25 years old and maturity of a well, matured woman.
Oh yeah, don’t dare call me auntie. ‘Cos Rojak referred me as Liulian siujeh. Go to this old man’s blog? He paid me for advertisement.
