Have I ever told you that I am a real match-maker before? Nope, not the play-play thing I blog. But true stories/kisah benar ala TV3.
You see, my hubby is the 4th son. He got 3 older brothers. One of them is 12 years older than him, a rat, just like atm. My mil(mother-in-law) was deeply worried that he will have no one to take care of him. Usual-lah, if you are almost 50 years old and single, sure your mama worried mah.
Somehow or other, I became the busy-body dil (daughter-in-law) and undertook to do everything so that my mil has less things to worry. (God bless her soul.)
First, I helped my bil to do some ‘face opening/fate arrangement’ ceremony at a Guan Yin temple. After that, we started hunting for available girls to introduce to him. He is a shopkeeper and ok looking.
The first ‘victim’ I got for him was Miss Ooi. She was a clerk at my office and very, very innocent and straight. We took them to an expensive Chinese restaurant. Mesti ada gaya, kan? But whaddaya know? My bil complaint that we spent too much money on the food. He said, “aiyor, so expensive? like this, I can eat for several weeks liao.” right in front of Miss Ooi.
What do you think happen? No….Miss Ooi did not ditch him. She waited for his follow-up. But bil pulak said, “Not interested. She can’t speak Mandarin.”
Next ‘victim’ was a florist, Mabel. Mabel, being a florist, sure good in the PR Department. And my bil, being a former pasar-malam vendor also got sugar tongue. However, put two of them together, chemistry semua tarak. (no chemistry) No spark, no white or black smoke. Only thing smoking was my atm’s pocket after spending on dinner with 4-season and sharksfin.
In the end, Mabel and Miss Ooi waited for a date from the elusive bil. He is still single, being 12 yrs older than my atm is 45yrs + 12 yrs = 57 years old. Do you think he still has a chance of finding a soul-mate? He earns a decent living, has a sundry shop at his own flat in a Malay populated area, hence no Ah Moi come to patronise. You have any one to introduce to my bil? Vacancy available, apply in the comment board, please.
And here’s a gift – Lilian too (that’s me la) said red roses bring good fate and love luck.
Read what the Bible says about The Perfect Wife. (accuracy not guaranteed by 5xmom) **Note : There is nothing wrong with being single, ok? Please don’t flame me by misinterpreting what I wrote. I am talking about my own bachelor boy bil and only him alone. It is none of my business, really. I REPEAT, I am talking about my own relative, ok?
