Niamah. What’s the big deal about niamah’s day? Don’t you agree that in the first place, there shouldn’t be just one day dedicated to niamah but maybe like a week? How come those bitches who screwed up people’s lives in the offices (like the previous-bitchy-me) get a full Sexyturkey Week, and rewarded with Annuar Uwekkkzain or Anita Sangatlawak concerts and hundred over Ringgit meals? While Niamah gets only one day?
We are not being fair to niamah, don’t you think so? Niamah was the one who gave birth to you. Niamah took care of you from the day when you cannot do a single thing, except sucking nen-nen and poo-pooing until who you are now. Yet, niamah only gets a mention for one single day.
Besides that, you are expected to reward niamah with what? Slimming centres courses? What? You insult niamah she fat issit? Or you give some massage chair. What? You think niamah got time to sit down and enjoy?
You tell me lah, where got fair. Don’t you think we should not celebrate niamah’s day just once but do it every day? In fact, my kids oso never care much about niamah. It is not my family tradition to have pomp and grandeur on just one single day. I expect them to do it all the time with the the tiny little things they do. Niamah, that’s only right, no?
Niamah. Appreciate niamah while niamah is still around. Do all the little things niamah appreciates. Don’t just wait for one single day in the year to do it because you probably had done many things that hurt niamah’s heart. It takes more than one single day or a stalk of a rose or a single meal to make niamah knows that you care. Do it while niamah is still around. Don’t wait till it is too late and niamah already sell salted duck eggs to feel bad over it.
But never mind, even if niamah already sell salted duck eggs, you can still do niamah proud by being a good person.
Happy Niamah’s Day, anyway.
(hehehe, to my non-Chinese speaking readers. Niamah = your mother. ‘sell salted duck eggs’ = living in the next world already)
What? From my title, you think I am cussing? No wor, I am only writing a regular post what. Nay, my #1 fansee suggested it. He said if niamah still around, she sure slapped him (me) for using niamah so often. So, this is in honour of all our moms. Living and deceased. You may have taught us well, but niamah is still a very favourite word we use amongst friends. Niaaaaaamah.
