I read Hustler’s blog and was amused with these:
“The thing about Shanghai you should note is that the women are damn fierce! I always see their women bashing their male spouses with handbags and screaming at them. The men there are pretty docile, that’s what I’ve heard.” – Quoted by Hustler’s friend.
Back here, someone else gave me a different impression of husbands. *ahem, ahem, clearing throat to make the unpopular confessions.*
Wingz said…err … soli hor im a very traditional kinda lowkung hor 😛 if not then i might as well hire a maid ? its a lot cheaper than having a wife! 😛
Does this make some of you ladies who are wives, jumping out of your seat in disgust? How about those young ladies who flamed me and accused me of being a sexist/subdued/whatever bitchy names you labelled me? No? Then, let’s hear what I replied to Wingz,
5xmom said… Hahaha, my lowkung (husband) also always say that. “aiyah…why I so sitoopid, should have hired a maid. And after paying for kais (prostitutes), still got plenty of money left.” LOL!
So, does this means that generally, men like to be the traditional husband? What is a traditional husband? Someone who expects his wife to wait on him, does most of the houseworks, child rearing and serves him? I suppose so. I know that most men, nowadays do their share of domestic duties but in truth, I believe they would prefer to be just being MAN.
OK, OK, I am not an abused wife. My lowkung irons his own clothes, helped out in most things, do all the DIY male jobs like plumbing, wiring, hacking (walls la), drilling (cabinets la) and I can safely leave the kids to him whenever I have to go out.
But of course, there are times when he would grumbled, grumbled and said what he said above. Which in fact is true. I mean, why would a man bother to get married? What for? He can find pleasures by exchanging with money. He can have his clothes ironed by the launderette, food cooked by the caterer, house cleaned by the maid and if he wants to play daddy, maybe get a dog or cat?
I know there are lots of stay-at-home-dads (SAHD) nowadays, I know women have equal rights etc etc. But still, I believe deep down, secretly, men love to be the traditional husbands, whether they dare to admit or not. And women ought to play along and be the submissive wives, sometimes. It ensures family harmony.
**Addition : Decides to add this photo in to prove that my lowkung is great with the kids. See how cosy they are with him?
