“I think you will go bankrupt if I give you four daughters”

Do you think it is too early for me to change my blog theme to a Christmas theme? The shopping malls already put up Christmas decorations. So, I am really tempted to put a Christmas theme along with my annual snowfall.


Anyway…we went to KDU this afternoon and while waiting for my eldest son to run some errants, hubby and I sat in the car and did some chicks watching.

So, I told him, “Dear, I think you will go bankrupt if I give you four daughters.”


Once you are married for so long, you do not need to explain much ‘cos your other half will automatically receive the rest of the message through psychic transfer.

He said, “Chey….they can wear pasar malam clothes.”

I told him, “My daughters don’t wear pasar malam clothes one, ok?”


I go on, “Wuah, imagine the amount of cosmetics, handbags, shoes, bras, bullets (tampon), clothes, accessories we have to spend if we have four daughters instead. At least our sons all cincai bochap, can wear hands-me-down clothings.”


So, yeah, on this weekend, I thank God I have four sons who are not high maintenance. Otherwise, all my Bobbi Brown, SKII and skin supplements budget will be spent on daughters. Wah piang….I wonder how parents with lots of girls in the family cope with their shopping and spending habits?

  1. Tak payah four … one pun sudah cukup!!!! Some of my make up has already been transferred into her drawer ….. Baru 4 1/2 !!!

  2. LOL… That’s kind of true. But girls also don’t mind sharing stuff ma… However, come to think of it, the monthly supplies can be quite a big cost. Oh yeah, girls like to jaga badan and so, food-wise, the cost is probably not too much. 😛

    One advantage of having lots of daughters is that in the future, when they get married and have kids; the baby-related stuff can be passed from one sister to another. My friend is 1 of 8 daughters in her family. She said that growing up in a family like that was very noisy and that she was “reporting” to at least 3 or 4 sisters older than her. 😀

    Her dad is very traditional, preferred boys but bo pian, got all girls. He’s very happy now as the daughters will often come back to visit him wherever in the world they may be.

  3. Start your Christmas theme now… what are you waiting for????
    My X’mas tree is already up… actually this is the first time it’s up so early. Blame it on the bleak economy outlook… I needed X’mas to cheer me up!
    SO… X’mas starts early this year for me…jingle bells jingle bells Santa send me a big bonus for “the seasson of giving and sharing”!

  4. I’m feeling the pinch also …once hubby bought two “Barbie” sunglasses, without me knowing. The price is equivalent to one week dinner, if I shop in pasar malam and cook at home! I still can’t get over it. But think as boys git bigger, their toys also more expensive, right?

  5. It’s not that bad having all girls at home. My mom has 3 daughters and she doesn’t spend much on us. She spent more on food for us. Now all of us also sibeh gemuk especially my baby sister. I don’t use make ups but I was forced to use 🙁

  6. Beng Beng – I follow positive encouragement hehehe. Go higher, go higher but remember to hold tight. No lah, they are all monkeys so stop them waste of breath only. When there are several kids together they are braver.

  7. well, I have 2 elder sister and no lor, my mum don’t really spend a lot on us, apart from the pads la. Cause she makes sure she don’t teach us about make up, feed us fat fat till we got no nice clothes to wear and then when we grow up, earn our own money or at least can afford things ourselves or sister giving her money then she only complain we are fat. T.T cause we can buy our own things. She tahan quite a while.

    But mummy not a make up person. XD
