Axe the ex

Trust me, the world is very, very small. And the Big Boss up there sometimes, have very crass humour. You never know whom you will bump into at the most unlikely places.

I have one ex (specimen A) whom ended up living in the same apartment block as I was. He was single then, whilst I was married with one kid. Oh boy, I hate seeing that face every morning in the lift.

Then, I have another one (specimen B) who got married the same day as I was! And we had our first child around the same time too. How much co-incidence can that be? Our children ended up going to the same primary and secondary school.

I was at that ‘dreaded-dreaded in-law’ boutique opening yesterday. I am the haughty-mighty ‘grand aunty’ (kim poh/kham phor) of this person who opened a boutique.

When I got down from the car, yikes! There stood the guy! OMG, I can’t turn back ‘cos my four sis-in-laws had seen me and were already calling out to me. Die ler, I so wanna jump into the big longkang!

But heh, so ‘kick’ to see that specimen B is old. Balding with white hairs. Eeek! You know how shiok it is to see that the ‘one that got away’ is not so good-looking compared to your own spouse? My handsome atm. Mmmmm…I am so proud of my atm!

So, moral of the story? Don’t mess around with too many exs. You won’t like it when caught in awkward situations and your mind go fast-forward like a DVD on double speed. From first date to parting date. It leaves you standing there grinning like a Cheshire Cat, not sure what to do. Eat what also forget. Duh!

But at least, for a second, I wish I can whisper in his ears….

whisper that so he can hear

and know

and remember

that I got



a blog.


“google my name, you idiot, google my name!!!!”

And that was my very un-happening weekend. Oh ya, plus I discovered that my sons are babes magnets. Woohoo, I am so proud (but I think the father is prouder)! They were at a church camp.
