No, it is not Local Area Network.

Normally, when my dearest darling husband (muaksssss…I love you, throw kisses ala rabidliang) drives, he will get mad and cuss “Cho ha mik L (pronounce as el) lah!”

L stands for Lan, I know but it is not nice to cuss in front of the kids mah. Especially when you have four years old who may go tell his kindy teacher, “Teacher, lu cho ha mik lan?”


So, it has always been L.

Suddenly, I realised last night that I am not too sure if L can refer to a woman’s one? So, I went…

“Pssstt…dear ah, dear….”

*waits for reaction*

“Dearrrrr….I want to ask something” *teh mode on*

His antennae, and I mean his male instinct that women are up to no good with that kind of tone of voice, stands. Looked quizzically at me.

“I ask hor, you cannot scold me ok? Is lan applicable for male or female?”

As usual lah, he did not respond and gave me a poker face. Frustrated, I MSN and asked a few women in the group chat. (yeah, yeah, we 8poh and bitch a lot)

“Eh, lan is male only or unisex?”
