.. my client’s secretary AA, she let out that she is very, very upset with [tag]Siti Nurhaliza[/tag]. AA said she and her whole family are very loyal fans of the singer until yesterday but not anymore now. She ranted and ranted and I only gave the occasional nod of the head So, AA told me that her whole family tore up all the posters in the house, packed up all the tapes, CDs, magazines and memorabilia and had chucked them out unceremoniously at the neigbourhood dumpster.
Wah, these fans can get really, really emotional and all worked up. So much so, that some took emergency leave from work just to hear breaking news of their idol’s wedding announcements and others throwing away every shred of momento they had paid good money and collected and cherished all this while. Something like a bad breakup! (NyonyaPenang’s blog, who had to hold the fort ‘cos her staffs all disappeared from work to watch the live telecast!)
For someone who is cut off from the real world and hardly making contacts with any adults, I was thoroughly amused to read about the reaction towards Siti Nurhaliza’s choice of life partner. I was never a fan of hers but had admired with her almost spotless image except for the egg drinking Sharifah Aini’s case. But I know many Malay guys who adored her. One of them is Pa’din Musa whom joked that he is Siti Nurhaliza’s fiance (mentioned by the MC during the Asian X-Games) and our very own blogsphere Menj!
When I casually mentioned – ‘how come people are not happy with Siti Nurhaliza’s wedding’ to my dear atm, he gave me the reasons. Fuwah, this taukeh has lots of staffs who probably had been talking about nothing but ‘Siti nak kahwin dengan [tag]Datuk K[/tag]’ in the office. Imagine my accountant husband also knows the public reactions to Siti’s choice. Kan dahsyat. World Cup pun kalah dan tak sehangat berita ni.
Atm said that firstly, the man is way, way older. Secondly, he is just divorced. OK, so that’s the reasons. I hope this man of mine won’t get gatal and wants to get a young wife next time when he hit 50 years old. (eh, berapa umur Datuk K ah?)
Come to think of it, I think generally wives get short-changed. Say the wives had been labouring with the man. Bring up kids and stuffs. Then, the jantan gets richer and richer. Anak dah besarkan? Tak lah trauma kalau nak ceraikan? So, tunggu apa lagi? Ceraikan bini tua, kahwin bini muda.
Things like these happen right in front of me when I was working. Sometimes, I played devil’s advocate. I told lies to get the husband out of trouble. At times, I had to spy (by finding out from the grapevines) to prevent some senior managers from getting involved with their young staffs. Once or twice, I had to receive sobbing wives who came into the office to ask the boss to intervene because the senior, old man manager is keeping his pretty production operator. These were all part and parcel of my job. Aduhai….gejala jantan yang dah kaya, katakan…
So,now Malaysia most eligible anak dara dah kata jodoh, apa lah kita nak ambik tau. Tapi bini-bini tua sekalian, kan risau noh? Bila jantan dah tua-tua, rasa nak [tag]kahwin[/tag] baru, boleh kata, “Jodoh tu kan di tangan Tuhan…..” And my best advice, as usual ala 5xmom –
If your children is old enough, make sure all your husband’s companies have them as shareholders. If their age is not above 18years, hold in trust. Transfer kesemua harta-benda, syarikat-syarikat dan setiap sen masuk nama anak. Baru kita tak berenang berdiri (stand swimming means cannot find a foothold). Because if you transfer the properties to your children, no one can claim you are a money digger. Muahahahar, this is one of the best lesson I learnt from all the Datin Seri and Datin-Datin. But errrm..too bad, my laki doesn’t own much properties and no companies so I don’t get to practice it. Remember, if you have many properties, get hold of a Sendirian Berhad company and put all of these properties under the company. If the laki mampus, no anak di luar nikah and bini tua (if there is any) can come and claim.
Frankly, if one has been married for that long, it is not the man that we feel sayang (pity) to lose. It is the money! If you want to hurt a man most, hit his pocket! Kehkehkehkeh.
