I asked a question at Facebook and sent the question to all my female Facebook contacts. However, I got a few guys who replied as well. Their answers are so funny so I think I should share it here.
My question was :
Does your taiyeemah aka aunt flo aka period ‘make appointment’ before arrival? Or she loves to surprise you and catch you unaware?
Carolyn Kong: usually..on time..wont unaware de..coz got symptoms one..like getting cranky or pimples popping out..
Rosalind SK: Make appointment
Earl Ku: eh kira pakai kalkulator saitifik tak buleh ka ….
Sharon Bakar: i know as soon as i begin to crave chocolate!
Simon Yoong: depending on my boss’ attitude to me. :p
Long time ago, I wrote one post just because the thoughts just popped into my mind and I got grilled backside over it. I told you I am obnoxious, rite?
“That women’s monthly curse?” with 40 comments because some folks got PMS and cari gaduh sama saya.
Anyway, I am just curious. Do you have hang-ups choosing which pad to buy? Do you find it annoying to see those dangling tea bags samples all over the supermarket? I do. That’s why I always stick to one brand because I am such a prude. I cannot go touch, look see, feel, pinch, check the layers of all those sanitary pads. So shy lah. Especially with all those ah peks hanging around, buying soap powder (cos they are always placed next to each other). That’s why getting tampons are so much more discreet.
Apamaciam? Are you the kind who don’t have problem buying pads in bulk because they are cheap? You know…those that come in 72 pieces. Doh, bocor pun tak kan bocor sampai 72 pieces, kan?
And moms-to-be, get your stocks of maternity pads ready ‘cos you don’t want the poor hubby to hang around the section to find if it is whisper, kotex, sanita (does it even exist?), with or without wings type that you ask him to get for you when you just delivered your baby. Not every guy is as bold as my dear hubby who had no problems asking the promoter “Wa eh boh seh kia, ai beh hamik?” (yayaya, he had done it twice)
