Hhhhhhave yyyyyyou ggggggot ccccccchillls ttttttthat mmmmmakes yyyyyou, ggggrrrrrrrrr? I do. So, I shall take two panadols and see you all in the morning.
But you know what? I got the chills since last night and two panadols usually drove the fever away and I am good again. So, I took two panadols around 6.30pm and expect the fever to go off around 7.00+pm. It didn’t. I have a committee meeting at 8.00 pm and was thinking of MIA and about to SMS the members. Joint pains, coughs and stuffs.
However, just before I could do it, IBS #1 and #4 ‘ding dong’. Fuyoh, quickly jumped out of bed, took a hot bath, changed and cabut to church. Sayonara IBS-es. Goodbye, goodnight and hope I don’t see you all so soon. *cabut fast-fast*
By the time I got to meeting, big sweats came and no more fever adi. Nothing like a couple of IBS to drive away any sickness.
Arrggh…I found this old pic in my Flickr site. I wanna eat jelly NOW!
OK lah, once I start, hard to stop. So, while I was wearing my shoes to go out, my next door neighbour’s every evening drama was played out in front of my eyes. This little boy age 3 yrs refused to go home with the mom every day. Almost every single day, we will hear the din of kid screaming, babysitter consoling and that sampat mother shouting and cursing.
Since I was outside my unit, I saw with my own eyes. The boy clung to the babysitter who was carrying another smaller (someone else) baby under her charge, the mom screaming and smacking him. Duh. The father plak, already walked home buat dunno. They stay on the same unit, just a few more units away.
I don’t know lah. I simply hate parents being so abusive with their words and hands. The mom sometimes will scold the boy and threaten to leave him, not taking him home etc. Sometimes, she will asked the three year old kid if he has finished his homework. WTF? Siao ah?
In the end, the babysitter carried the baby, hold the boy’s hand and took him home with the mom still grumbling abusive words in Mandarin. Damn, something is seriously wrong with the woman. She probably suffers from PMS or some work pressure or marital pressure or whatever. It is just so wrong for her to be so harsh on a small kid while her other daughter, age about 5 years old looks on and right in front of nosy neighbours like me 😛 and the other small baby. Her daughter goes to another babysitter.
Of course, these are non of my business but it does grate on my mother’s instinct because of the shrill cries and ferocious mom. Even my poor 3 years old will look sort of look dreamy and said, “Neighbour boy so poor hor, why his mummy scold him hor?” whenever he hears the cries.
Remember hor, Uncles and Aunties, don’t beat little kids. Pain-pain on the bum and heart wan orh.
Anyway, it is wrong for parents to dish out physical pain as a form of discipline to small children. Kids when brought up properly naturally knows their limits and my 3 years old will start pouring his tears even before I really scold him when he did something he knew he shouldn’t. Kids can sense our feelings. That’s why the boy refused to go home with his mom. There is more love and devotion at the babysitter’s place.
Oooookkkkk…..Iiiii prrrrromise nnnnnot ttttto tttell ooon mmmy nnnneighbours aaaanymore. Take this as a reminder and an eye opening situation.
