The bored housewife

This morning, I woke up at 7 am, took a quick bath and send my son to school at 7.10 am.

The reason I wake so late is because we have 2 bathrooms. One will be occupied by my #3 son and one is meant for my #5 son. Since they need longer time to prepare, I usually let them bath first.

Meanwhile, it is my husband who will attend to the little one because he is not as forgetful as I. He will remember the handkerchief on the right side pocket, the wallet on the leftside pocket, RM3 in wallet, water bottle filled and put into schoolbag side pocket, socks, boxers, pants, shirts and the usual, early morning father-son chat.

This morning, hubby who is driving #3 son, signaled me from the back. I don’t get what he was saying. So he phoned me. We have Celcom family plan so phone calls are free.

“Harlow…you have taken his school bag?”

Aiyor, you see lah…

So, after I sent the boy to school, I don’t know where I am going. So poor of me, directionless.

Therefore, I went to the Pulau Tikus market. Bought some pork, some fish and lala, vege. RM100, left only about RM30.

Then, I went to find breakfast. Again, directionless cos I don’t know what to eat.

So, I went to try Jones Road mee goreng but the uncle is not ready yet. Then, I cincai ordered the curry mee next to the mee goreng cos earlier, the hawker thought I was going to order her curry mee when I squeeze through to mee mamak stall.

I am very nice one mah, don’t want to disappoint her. So, I ordered. You know what? She had a photo of her with Dr. Porntip. Her stall puts ‘Best Curry Mee in Town’. Wanna bluff meh? Just because Dr. Porntip ate there, simply claim liao.

I wanted to take a photo of the curry mee and post on my Facebook but that coffeeshop hor, damn packed one. They put one long stretch of tables and chairs and everyone has to share tables. So, I shy to take out my handphone camera to snap a picture.

Morning market crowd consist mostly of aunties, retirees and bored housewives like me lah.

Now, I am cooking tau yew bak with or nuis and boiling lotus root soup. Later cook rice and then, fetch kid.

That concludes the boring housewife, boring routine life of this bored housewife. Oh yeah, of course, I did many other things beside the above like harvesting peanuts, bitching about media ethics, a new high score on Bejeweled…..

Haih…whoever reads this, you are as mou-liu as I am.

  1. Hey Lilian, why you not comment on KJ criticizing your CM’s angpow to senior citizen that include datuks and millionaires? You wonder if he really don’t get it or he is just mean. Anyway he is low class person for some one who has so much and given so much. Obscenity seems to be desiease that gets inherited in UMNO…

  2. Lilian, I was born and bred in Penang, now living in KL. I love ur blog…especially when u post pics of Penang curry mee. I can hardly find that here.

  3. Lilian, I was at that same place on Monday morning. Less people after the weekend. I also noticed the photo you mentioned. I always end up eating the koay teow th’ng. Don’t know why.

    I always end up buying roasted pork and char siew too.That day I also bought the nasi ulam from that aunty who wears lots of gold bangles and who is very lansi one.

    Next time take a look at the posters/banners on the wall of that kopi tiam.Got one big banner say ‘CONGRATURATION’ spelled exactly this way.

    I love Pulau Tikus market!

  4. Bigjoe – Heh, CM can handle his own detractors one. I only deal with the cybertroopers who bitched on Facebook and also Gerakan supporters.
