*bawls!!!!* This is the second day I am eating leftovers. I had made scrambled egg and cheese sandwich for my kid but I have no stomach for that. So, I ended up eating leftovers, the same one I ate yesterday which is also the same one I ate the evening before. I added a lot of mushrooms and tomatoes to the tomyam. But it is still leftovers.
Moments like these, I wish I am back to the work force. When I can dress up nicely, put on my high heels, cement truck and paints and really ‘Let’s go out for lunch”. Those days when lunch can range from dim sum at five-stars hotel (not my account of course) to kick-ass expensive buffets to farewell lunches, birthday lunches and etc etc.
Of course, now I can do it still. But how fun is it to meet up for lunch with a bunch of mothers, talking about kids. Spare me! Everywhere I go, my four years old will tag along definitely. And I have two choices. Take time to dress up like some EFNTD tai-tai or scramp out like an Ah Soh. Both options also no fun because the weather is freaking hot. Not like I have a chauffeur driven 7-series waiting for me at the lobby. Driving in that weather is madness if it means just to have lunch.
Moreover, the little nagging devil in me will drive me to insanity. “Hey, 5xmom….you see that bunch of women? See how nice they are wearing? Look at you, all like an Ah Soh with a little kid. Even the credit card promoters also do not want to give you a second look.”
The saint in me will reply, “Hey bugger off, horn one. 5xmom easily earns more than that bunch of women, ok? She is like the taukehsoh, not a bunch of clerks lah.”
Horn one, “Look, look, her self-esteem is now dented. Who cares how much she earns? She still has no aircond office to return to. No title at her door. Not even a cubicle to call her own.”
The saint, “KNN, MCB, let 5xmom alone, wokay? She is going mad ledi. Later, she also fark me, you are going to get it as well.”
Horn one, “Neh neh neh neh neh…”
The saint, “Just you wait, she is going to come up with another post about how nice it is to be a stay-at-home mom. Then, all the working women is going to hate her forever…..”
Horn one, “Then my mision is accomplished.”
The saint, “Come lets go out for lunch.”
5xmom – Hey, wait you two! What about me???!!!!???? I am left at home eating leftovers again!!!???!!!
